White's attack has been stopped in its tracks. The position is still very dangerous but black hopes the danger is over. Your tasks:
a) Analyse the position and explain what is white doing, as well as how black stops it
b) Who is better here?
c) White to move must find the best continuation

Total available points for this puzzle is 25. The answers will be published next time together with puzzle #365.

Puzzle #363 solution:
Puzzle collected by Eugen, 2012. This week's best answers are by the top scorers:
a) Black's advantage looks minimal because it consists only of one pawn; also Kh4 is on the rim, not helping the passer
b) Without the extra pawn the Bishop would be better because it is an endgame with pawns on both sides of the board. In such an endgame the Bishop is stronger than the Knight
