Arena - is GUI, graphic shell which supports two protocols of Winboard and UCI. The first versions of shell appeared in December, 2001.
It is possible to consider the godfather of the program Frank Quisinsky, which conducted large work on organization of testing of the first versions of the program, and also on popularization of new shell! Partners were such known original programmers as AnMon - Christian Barreteau (France), Dragon - Bruno Lucas (France), Nejmet - Jean Christophe Gabillard (France) and SOS for Arena - Rudolf Huber (Germany). All of them prepared own versions of UCI of engines.
The distinguishing feature of the program is also, that a shell supports practically all engines of Winboard, and also all engines of UCI valuably. In future an author supposes to develop the tournament block of shell. Partner Arena was become by the author of the strongest free engine Ruffian 1.0.1 - Perola Valfridsson, Sweden, and other partners appeared today!
