9.1 Background of v6

Since version 5.07 of the program was released in 2003, GNU Chess has basically remained unchanged. Then Fabien Letouzey developped Fruit, which proved to be a stronger chess engine and shaked the computer chess world. At some point in time, he kindly assigned copyright to FSF, which allowed us to make Fruit 2.1 (the latest free version) the base for GNU Chess v6.

Therefore, it can be fairly said that Fabien Letouzey is remarkably the main contributor to GNU Chess v6.
