The rating is for the castling extension, from fixed up to strict up to loose free castling having been recent topic. The board was invented by King Gustav III of Sweden in 18th Century. Swedish Cannon is another thing entirely and does not appear here. Swedish Cannon is strengthened Xiangqi Cannon by virtue of being able also to jump and slide without capturing. Winther uses the ancient 68-square board a dozen or two times in different piece mixes 'of somewhat the same rules-set'. The last 6 words refer to Winther, like a Fourriere etc., often smartly keeping intact the set RNBK. Winther probably knows his own material enough to find the 25 best from among his over 100 CVs in these CVPage workshops and links.
