Hi all,

Just a short post today to let you know about some great new changes that were made to Live Chess overnight!

  • Automatic draw on time-out if opponent has insufficient mating material: KB, KN or KNN
  • The maximum allowable lag is now two seconds
  • New moderated "Debate" chat room
  • In-game Voice Chat button now always visible
  • Site outage notification with timer when necessary
  • New "observe {username}" command added - takes you right to username's game! (See the whole list)
  •  Seek Graph improvements: logarithmic scale on ratings-axis and dot-stacking
  • Live Analysis Board improvements
  • Miscellaneous improvements: follow/unfollow improvements, better grid refreshing, etc.

Please let us know if you see anything in there that's not working like it should.
