Evolution of a Go program

About the development of Moyo Go Studio, software to (help) play the Oriental game of Go. Go is a two-player zero-sum game of perfect information. It is considered much harder than Chess. Currently, in spite of enormous effort expended, no computer program plays it above the level of a beginner.

Freeware SGF Editor: Real Soon Now™

It was non-trivial to prepare MoyoGo's sources for conditional compilation to a freeware SGF editor, but it will be worth it. People have started to create Audio Go lessons with Moyo Go Studio, and they have expressed the desire for a free SGF reader, so that anyone can play back those lessons.

I will announce the availability of the SGF Editor in re.games.go in less than 48 hours, heaven permitting.
