It seems to me that XG has conquered the backgammon world, so congrats to Xavier continue to be in order.
Because of its merit and popularity, it looks like almost all authors and commentators use XG to analyze positions. Here is the rub: those positions are almost always displayed using XG's green-on-green diagrams (for example in the USBGF Magazine).
To me, those color diagrams are awful, specially in print, diminishing from the appeal of any published work that uses them.
There is relief. XG has a "publication" diagram format which prints beautiful images. But, it seems that it is difficult to generate images, if at all.
I hope someday XG will make it easy to generate images of those publication diagrams, which will make it a heck of a lot more enjoyable to read any published analysis.
