Too bad Fritz 15 is not supporting Syzygy tbs, but crappy Nalimov tbs which I don't have, and who take too much space...

Fritz 15 is obviously a new engine which Vas wrote from scratch after carefully studying Rybka 4.1 source code for 4 years.
Looks like the only thing new is the name, and maybe some improvements added over Rybka 4.1. Note: I am speaking only about the engine and I doubt Vas started from scratch.
It's a polished Rybka 4.1 with a small improvement,around 40 Elo and a major business move from Vasik which I grade with !! :D

I strongly doubt that he'll release the Fritz 16 edition regards,

I agree Doc, and I see about 40 Elo as well.

I wonder Ted why Chessbase is jumping from author to author to release it's flagship chess program,Fritz that is,and not sticking to a certain programmer in the long term like it used to be many many moons ago :!: :?:

A quick hit and run money :!: :?:

That would be foolish to write from scratch. Rybka has a very good SMP implementation. Vas is obviously a very talented programmer and it is good to see him move on and put Rybka behind him. Wish him all the best.
He is moving on by helping Chessbase sell a clone of his own engine?

The Fritz legacy must be carried on by any means necessary business wise....

Not that I approve this approach,but....

What has become of nowadays youth?

Oh wait, that's what my mother repeatedly complained about.

On the other hand one doesn't need predictive powers to see it coming.

Not get hung on semantics , but a clone would be a exact copy of his own engine - we already know it's not. A better choice might be a derivative of his own engine - which happens all the time - so what's your point?
