SuperChess is a GUI application for playing chess.

It is written in Python 3.10 programming language, uses PySide6
GUI library, python-chess library, and Stockfish chess engine.

It provides an interactive SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) chess board
and a table that displays chess move notation.

Interactivity with chess pieces on the chess board is bound to the rules
of standard chess.

To move a chess piece on the chess board, click on it and then click on
any square marked with a dot indicating a legal chess move.

SuperChess uses Stockfish 14.1 chess engine for Windows and Linux-based
operating systems, but Stockfish 12 for macOS operating system.
