Peter Österlund,
a Swedish computer scientist and chess programmer. He is author of MLChess, a machine language chess program for the HP 48 series of Graphing calculators [1], developed since 1995 [2] [3], and the UCI compliant Java open source chess engine CuckooChess, both under the GPL. Peter Österlund further ported Stockfish to the Android platform, called DroidFish, with GUI and opening book code, derived from CuckooChess [4].


In March 2012, Peter Österlund announced and published his new engine Texel. Texel 1.00 was functionally equivalent to an unreleased version of CuckooChess. The main difference is that Texel is written in C++11 instead of Java [5].
