The lichess team is constantly creating new features for you to enjoy. Now we need your help to decide what to add next!
It's been only 3 months since the last developer update, but there has been many great improvements to lichess since then. We'll summarize the most important ones for you.
Learn from your mistakes allows players to train tactics they missed in their own games, and turned out to be one of our best received features ever! Rethinking your positions where you made mistakes is possibly one of most efficient ways of improving your chess.
You can now enter practice mode from any position by clicking the target icon next to the board. In practice mode, you are playing against the computer, which gives you instant feedback after each move.
Our tactics trainer got a complete overhaul, with a rewritten puzzle generator ensuring much higher-quality puzzles. Moreover, we continuously generate new puzzles from new games – you'll never run out!
You can now turn on infinite analysis for Stockfish to reach previously unimagined depths. Stockfish is also updated to Stockfish 8, improving strength in all variants. Moreover, Stockfish has gotten better handling of threefold repetition, longer variations and smarter merge of local engine results. But that's not enough! Finally, Stockfish plays and analyses Crazyhouse and Antichess, even winning the 1st CCVA (Crazyhouse Chess Variant Association) Computer Championships.
