The last Shredder version was 2009 or 2010 I believe.

The author has stated in an email that he is still working on Shredder. Would love to see another Shredder. That was the first engine I ever purchased or used!

Chiron chess a finished project?

The Chiron chess site seems to be down and no updates in a long while. I guess it is another engine that has gone away?

It seems that only (of the stronger engines) Houdini, Komodo, Stockfish and Hiarcs are actively being developed or continued at the moment?

I also really enjoy the Shredder app for Android. Costs 7 bucks but also comes with about 1,000 tactics problems as well. Mobi...

Re: HIARCS Chess Explorer updated to engines matches

I could have done without the engine matches features in Hiarcs Explorer. I was hoping it would continue down the path of just being a GUI for analysis and game play/training. There are some important analysis/database features it needs that (in my mind) were more important then engine matches. The...
