This is one of very best variants, may be best variant.  But when I download and use Duniho ZRF for Zillions program, I discover that pawn cannot promote even if player has piece in prison.  Pawn moves to last rank and stay pawn and cannot move more.  If Duniho fix and upload new ZRF it should be great for players of this great variant.  Thank you.
