Updated ChessGUI 0.072 and 10x8 engines to fix castling and Chess960-recognition bugs.

Matthias.
My engine was quite strong till I added knowledge to it.

Matthias.

While fixing other things, I unfixed queen-side castlings.
Now refixed GUI and 10x8 engines.

This is already implemented in ChessGUI, if playing
Chess960 or from pgn/epd start positions.

Later there shall probably be an option to save
current game in a file of choice or save selected
games from pgn database.

Human-Engine matches are already implemented. Enter
moves now by clicking, not dragging.

The board and pieces are one bitmap that anybody can
create/replace. If you create one, give me a copy.

Yes, that shall come. For now, debug files are
automatically deleted. You can set their number in
"Preferencs".

I will provide such a default configuration
possibility soon.

I will provide such a default configuration
