ChessGUI 0.225 and Knock Out

ChessGUI 0.225 and Knock Out

The Knock Out pairings use the Swiss pairing algo to ensure that the best engines qualify for next cycle.

BTW, a mini Charlotte now accompanies ChessGUI.
She was cut down to 19000 positions using a new ChessGUI feature.

Very good Matthias. Thanks on both counts.
Can knockout tournaments have knockout matches rather than single games yet?

Cheers,
Graham.

The "Alternate Colours" feature is broken in Swiss and Knock Out tournaments in ChessGUI 0.225.

It shall be fixed in next release.
