Description Christopher Howard 2013-01-02 06:09:14 UTC
Raptor is a top quality chess client written in Java and available under a BSD license:

https://code.google.com/p/raptor-chess-interface/

Raptor stands head and shoulders above the clients already available in Portage, in having all of the following in one:

1) A highly attractive interface.
2) Full FICS support
3) Full pre-move functionality
4) BeanShell scripting support

I have not built Raptor from source myself, but I ran the generic 64-bit Linux package on my amd64 Gentoo box, and it works great under IcedTea-7.2.3.2.

Reproducible: Always

I've made one, it's really beta, so if anyone wants to patch it, feel free to do it.
