GNOME Chess,
a free, Chess Engine Communication Protocol compliant open source chess GUI released under the GNU General Public License, to run under the GNOME desktop environment on Linux and UNIX derivatives, most often distributed with GNU Chess as default engine [1]. GNOME Chess is written in Vala and uses GTK+ and Cairo to render the chess board. GNOME Chess was first released in November 2012 by Robert Ancell as split from glChess then member of Gnome Games, apparently ported from Python to Vala [2], keeping glChess as independent development branch [3]. After Ancell's initial effort, Sahil Sareen and Michael Catanzaro have become primary GNOME Chess maintainers [4].
