I voted "Sometime in March", since it does not specify which year! :-)

If you don't give numbers, your comment is useless. :?
Personally, I'd say +35 to 40 Elo is the minimum between 2 commercial versions. That's roughly +5% score against the same pool of opponents.

Is there anybody else out there eagerly dying for the release of Komodo 9?
Engine authors shouldn't feel pressured to release before they're fully satisfied that they're ready to do so.
Absolutely.
