Re: Fritz 17

Re: Fritz 17

Also, it could be worth noting that Ginkgo had been listed on CCRl 40/40 as a private engine, but then it was pulled from the list just around the same time as the Fritz 17 discussion first sprang up. :) I don't know why that was, I wouldn't read anything into it.

Re: Fritz 17

This could be a clue as to what will be the engine in fritz 17 https://chesstroid.blogspot.com/2017/11/fritz-15-for-android-ft-ginkgo-engine.html Interesting, as I've suspected for the last few months that Ginkgo was a prime candidate to transition into the next Fritz version (as a new Fritz was ex...
