Chess program Shredder 12 release date

Post by daniel71 » Wed Jun 03, 2009 2:44 am

Hello,

Stefan Meyer-Kahlen has told me during a support e-mail that Shredder 12 is due out in July, 2009. Looking forward to this version as I believe he has closed the gap from Rybka 3.0 :D

GREAT News!

Well done SMK. I doubt it is near R3 but it should surpass R2.3.2a

I REALLY hope he includes an opening book in the UCI though.

Typically, chess software programs release annual releases to sell to the mass market. They like their annual income cheques :)
