Sorry to hear that. :-(

Sorry I didn’t think to try it out.  I so rarely use pre move, except by 
accident, as it can so easily get me into trouble.  I know some people who like 
really fast times absolutely depend on it.

I have however found one more thing that maybe we should look into.  If it’s 
not to late.  It looks like one click moving is fairly broken.  Far too often 
it is assuming moves that I did not intend when there are other legal moves 
available  (usually the assumed move is really bad).  For instance as white as 
first move I click on the Knight and it automatically moves to f3, not a bad 
move in this case, but I don’t have the option to move to h3. Is this intended? 
 If it is too late then don’t worry.  It’s been like this in 4.8 and no one 
appears to have complained.

I would like another dev release if just to get the  “Browse” button translated 
:) but it’s not a big deal I suppose.
