Using another version, the last Build 5 of Glaurung Mjolnir but using the same sources from Tord from last Sunday I get:

Hi Dann,

What is Strelka_2_1? Is it available?
(I only know Strelka 2.0 Beta)

It was from a game I played last night - I have recently been testing out 2.b3 followed by 3.Bb2 (the Snyder Variation, named for USCF master Robert M. Snyder - it has been used occasionally by Nigel Short and is a favourite of Georgian GM Tamaz Gelashvili) against the Sicilian and so far it seems to be not too bad. 8-)
You played it...Well Done!

It is the version that Uri Blass modified. I do not think it is stronger than the original, just much easier to read. At any rate, if Uri says it is OK, I will send you a binary. The play will not be significantly different than 2.0

How long does it take your engine to find it? :?
I am not even sure this is good test. Every engine sees that after Rxe5 you cannot capture the rook. The question is what happens after black recovers the pawn at h2 and how the engine evaluates the position.

Try Toga, Rxe5! is a good move.
