GNOME Chess 3.9.5 Now Uses the HoiChess Engine by Default

First of all, with this version, the development team recommends installing the HoiChess engine by default, instead of Phalanx or GNUChess (or really anything else), in order to make the GNOME Chess game actually winnable for human beings. GNOME Chess 3.9.5 adds supports for the Octochess engine, introduces easier Easy/Normal settings for many engines, instructs CECP engines to add randomness to play, suggest longer game duration, adds keyboard shortcuts for next and previous move, adds missing tooltips to various new toolbar items, and updates the About dialog copyright notice.
