Critter 0.70

This version supports Gaviota tablebases.

New UCI options:

"GTB Path": Folder where tablebase files are located (default value: \gtb)
"GTB Cache": Size of tablebase cache in magabytes (dafault 32)
"GTB Compression": tablebase compression scheme (default "cp4")

"GTB Usage":
"Disable": Turn off tablebase probing. Useful for debugging/troubleshooting
"Only At Root": This does not slow down the search and allows for optimal play with less than 6 pieces left on the board
"Everywhere": Probe tablebases in search tree. IMO it is worth only for analysis. While it helps in some positions, it slows down the search too much and the engine is actually _weaker_ with this setting.

Strength:

In direct match against Critter 0.60 it is nearly 100 elo stronger.
It performs quite good against Komodo, Naum, even Shredder, but still gets eaten alive by Stockfish (especially in endgames).

Enjoy,

Richard
