Re: Publishing engine to CCRL

Hi Neil,

CCRL doesn't have any sort of publish or "signup" system. Just post a message here about your new engine and include a download link, and CCRL will do the rest!

Re: The Return Of Icarus

So close! But Waxman is definitely the stronger engine, so I'm happy with 2nd place in this group!
