Thanks to Jon for the new version.
I have been using Arasan for many years, starting with version 8.1
The lastest version I have been using until a few weeks ago in my engine matches was v17.3
I updated to v20.2 recently and now have tried v20.3

Just a minor point, the downloaded native linux versions of both of these fail to use the Syzygy tablebases in xboard.
I tried both popcnt and non-popcnt versions and also on different computers, intel and amd cpus and Mint 17 and 18.
The Windows versions were ok with wine and Windows 10.

I then downloaded the source files for v20.2 and compiled it myself.
Without making any changes to the Makefile, I just typed "make" to create the linux executable.
This executable worked fine and uses the Syzygy tablebases ok.
The .rc file was the same file that the downloaded executables used.
i.e. my executable, the downloaded executables and the .rc file are in the same folder.
I had set the path for the tablebases in the .rc file previously.
I then made the popcnt version which also worked.

v20.3 behaved exactly the same. I had to create my own executable to use Syzygy.
Just curious why this is so. I don't remember having similar problems with v17.3 which used Nalimov tablebases.
