CTAN package update: chessboard
CHANGES I rearranged and rewrote the keys and commands for the pgf-pictures. Now all styles and marks can be used in the foreground and in the background. I added definitions for partial borders. I extended the trim and clip commands. xifthen is now required. ATTENTION Upgrading to this version can change the look of existing document. Notably two things can give problems: The value of the padding key now affects much more objects (marks) in the pgf pictures. So it could be necessary to reset the padding. And the applycolor has changed its behaviour. It will now also affect the foreground picture.

chessboard – Print chess boards
This package offers commands to print chessboards. It can print partial boards, hide pieces and fields, color the boards and put various marks on the board. It has a lot of options to place pieces on the board. Using exotic pieces (e.g., for fairy chess) is possible.
The documentation includes an example of an animated chessboard, for those whose PDF viewer can display animations.
