Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (30th June 2018)

40/4 testing since the last update report has included:
(...)
Orion 0.5 64-bit
(...)
Many thanks to all CCRL testers ! I'm pretty happy with the v0.5 improvements, for sure automated tuning using genetic algorithms (even with a simple fitness evaluation) was worth to be tried !

Re: Mad Woman's Breakfast

Hello Graham,

Thanks a lot for selecting Orion in this tourney ! I didn’t manage to watch a lot of games (In fact, I have been connected just a few minutes), but it’s always pleasant to see our engine engaged in a competetion !

Unfortunately, as far as Orion is concerned, I didn’t notice any speed improvement over 7.3...!

New Orion release : v0.4 !

I'm happy to announce the availability of a new version of my little UCI engine : v0.4 ! I concentrated all my efforts to improve the search function, and the new version should clearly be better than the previous one (I hope in the range of 50-100 elo). A BMI2 version of the engine is also provided...
