Yes, the Crafty Engine is included by default. I've downloaded the latest version from its official website hosted on SourceForge and it works normally without errors. As you can see below, you can select Crafty as the main engine through the Engine > Engine #2 menu.

The Crafty engine is included, it is the default computer opponent, but it is not the latest Crafty version. You can find the latest Crafty engine at
You can use it in Crafty GUI just as any winboard engine using Engine>Add new engine menu.
If I'll find time for it (as it takes considerable time), then I'll make an updated Crafty GUI version that includes the latest Crafty version.
