glChess, [1]
a free, Chess Engine Communication Protocol compliant open source chess GUI released under the GNU General Public License, to run under the GTK+ GNOME desktop environments on Linux and UNIX derivatives. The development of glChess started in 2000 by a team around Robert Ancell - early versions since 0.8 in 2005 were written in C [2], in 2006 completely rewritten in Python [3], optionally featuring a 3D Graphics Board using GtkGLExt [4] and OpenGL both including Python bindings. glChess became part of Gnome Games [5] and was forerunner of GNOME Chess, which was first released by Robert Ancell in November 2012 as split from Gnome Games, apparently ported from Python to Vala [6], keeping glChess as independent development branch [7].
