BTW, what is the significance of the KQkq part? It looks redundant,
and besides that it seems already to have been notated.
Thanks for the clarification.
Castling availability. If neither side can castle, this is "-". Otherwise, this has one or more letters: "K" (White can castle kingside), "Q" (White can castle queenside), "k" (Black can castle kingside), and/or "q" (Black can castle queenside).
En passant target square. If there's no en passant target square, this is "-". If a pawn has just made a 2-square move, this is the position "behind" the pawn.
Halfmove clock: This is the number of halfmoves since the last pawn advance or capture. This is used to determine if a draw can be claimed under the fifty move rule.
Fullmove number: The number of the full move. It starts at 1, and is incremented after Black's move.
Not redundant however it isn't really used for displaying the board in a post (it would be if you were pasting a position into a viewer to analyse).
