Chess for Android 5.2.3: Accurate time control for all engines

Better be late than sorry. I'm sure most of the engine testers have already downloaded and started to use the new version of Chess for Android during my 7 days delay.

This last one fixes the increment bug for the UCI engines. From now on, seconds will be interpreted by the engines as seconds and not milliseconds by mistake.

After this update, i've already started Rapidroid from scrath. At first sight, it looks insane since there are ~17000 games to replay but the advantage of using a unique time control saves me a lot of time because i don't have to play two tourneys for each division.

Another opportunity is to introduce all updates and new engines. These would cost a lot of time already but now it will be part of the main stream.

The new Chess for Android can be downloaded from GOOGLE PLAY.

I recall that the Google Play version does not allow remote engine control. The network version of CfA which provides with that feature is not yet available but i guess it will come soon.
