Re: Faster compiles for Intel possible for Booot & Combusken?

Hi Frank, The support of operations like POPCNT in Combusken is handled by the Go runtime. Provided binary uses POPCNT when possible and falls back to the Hacker's Delight implementation when not. A good explanation of this mechanism is here https://lemire.me/blog/2020/06/04/the-go-compiler-needs-to...

Re: New engine releases 2020

Combusken's final 1.4.0 version released https://github.com/mhib/combusken/releases/tag/v1.4.0 There are no changes from the user's perspective. Why is it called final release? I hope you won't call it a day. Thank you, Guenther. I do not have any patches under testing, and I do not plan on working...

Re: Website engines

Hi Ed,
Raven https://github.com/sgriffin53/raven/
Might be worth adding; it is actively developed and steadily improving, currently at ~2400 ELO.

Re: New engine releases 2020

Combusken 1.3.0 released
https://github.com/mhib/combusken/releases/tag/v1.3.0

From the user perspective, the only change is lack of the chopper move.

Should be ~40-60 ELO stronger than Combusken 1.2.0.
