Existing build of pbchess-1.2.5 for Kindle Touch doesn't work with the new KT firmware 5.3.2.

The new build is ready: ...

It doesn't use GUI Launcher any more as GUI Launcher doesn't work with the 5.3.2 firmware. It uses the new Kindle

Unified Application Launcher (KUAL)

1. Install Unified Application Launcher if not installed
2. Completely remove your previous installation (BACKUP LICENSE KEY AND BASES!)
2. Unpack archive
3. Copy all the folders from archive to Kindle flash root (with overwriting).
