Onno Chess Software
Welcome to onnochess.com!
Onno is a professional chess program, more precisely a chess engine. That is a computer program that plays chess, i.e. computes the computer's moves. You can also use Onno to analyse chess games.
Onno uses UCI to communicate with a chess GUI.
Onno plays a positional style. Compared to other engines, it can handle quiet positions better then tactical positions.
Onno is being tested on Schwarzer Blitz.
Dec 13, 2010 Many people asked me and I guess even more asked themselves if there are any news about Onno. To be honest, I could spend almost no time on development since this Summer. The two projects I have at my job at Fraunhofer just have higher priorities; also I am neither willing nor constantly able to give up my private life to do both jobs with the engagement they require.
I seriously thought about discontinuing Onno, but I cannot accomplish that either. So I will resume Onno now, but I cannot tell how much time will be left for that. Not being able to spend sufficient time on Onno makes me sad, but there is no other choice.
