Hi,
it looks like he optimized main line so we can see more ponder hits now!
Perhaps Lance can confirm this here :)

I fixed a bug in the evaluation of king safety. The black side was being evaluated incorrectly.

The pocket PC change were UI fixes. It is still using the 5.1x engine. I'm now testing the 5.2x changes for the Pocket PC version.

Cheers...

My derar Lance:
May I ask you how is installed this program in a PC mobile? I am new to this technology, so if a program does no come with an automaic installer, I am lost with a bunch of files that I do not know how to execute..

The easiest way I know of is to first download the Thinker Mobile Cabinet file from the above link.Then save it somewhere on your desktop PC.Then link up your PPC using activesync to your desktop.Then if using XP I just go Start,My Computer,Mobile Device,Program Files, and copy the Thinker Cab file to the program files folder.A message should come up with converting files to PPC format or similar.Once it has been synced to your PPC then you need to open it for the first time with File Explorer on your PPC.Just open File Explorer and tap the very top icon My Device and you will see a folder "Program Files" once tapped it will have Mobile Thinker at the bottom which needs to be tapped to activate.

The easiest way is to copy the .cab file somewhere in your PPC, and execute it from there, and it will install in a "normal" way. Cabinet files are installer files in PPC enviroment.

There is a major improvement in Thinker 2.D. Great work, Lance!
