Welcome to the new GNU Backgammon web site

I'm glad to announce the new GNU Backgammon web site - www.gnubg.org.

The previous web page was just a temporary web page, but has been available for about 10 months now, so it is finally time to do something about it. This new site tries to collect all the loose ends of web resources about GNU Backgammon around the internet. It's also trying to attract the attention of GNU Backgammon users. Even though the web site is still incomplete, it will hopefully contain documentation and a user tip repository.

The web site is not complete functional yet, but will gradually be updated and maintained by the users and developers.

I have no doubt that GNU Backgammon 2-ply would show a positive result if given enough time vs. any human player in match play.
