New Images of Chess Pieces

The implementation of the new images of the chess pieces has been finished. An image for the chessboard is also planned, but this will take a little bit longer.

Can you spot the difference between the old and new ones?

The first one:


The second one:


Arrows and boxses could use some anti-aliasing too, but that's also for later. Now that the new images work I can finally do the documentation with the right screenshots.

These new images will be available in the next minor release which will also cover a few bug fixes. The next release will be in 1-2 weeks.

    I may be in the minority, but as I posted on the old website, I prefer the old pieces to the new. Any way to get the option installed of using either?

    @Quiroga: these images have been released in the beginning of January this year. However, new images are alrady about to be released.

    @Farid: You are not the only one who complained. Please have a look at this new blog post and let me know if the updated piece images are still worse than the original CPT 3.3 images:
