Well, now I have to look at it again.
Hmm, yes, some of the piece square tables are the same, as well as some similarity in I/O handling.

Re: New engine releases 2019

I should have read more closely - CrazyAra, as indicated by the name, plays Crazyhouse. I don't see anything for orthodox chess. Sorry if I wasted anyone's time by not mentioning this.
