Hannibal 1.7 is now available at

It should be much stronger than 1.5.

Please see the readme file for the list of changes.

Hi Edsel,

There are some old and/or outdated links at the chess engine portal.
I have marked those with '=> (comment)', just in case you want to
update the link section ;)

Hello Edsel,

I started a test already. If it gets into the TOP 16 it will throw out the old horse Naum :-)

I remember Hanibal 1.5 having some ponder issues which causes a lot of time losses. The first 20 games of 1.7 are fine ... I am crossing fingers!

Thanks for the version
Ingo

Ponder worked fine on my testing so I am hopeful, though issues are always possible if you are using a different interface than I tested on.

Is default settings optimal for Hannibal 1.7?

I'm planning to test ponder.

Thanks Edsel for the engine!

I have a question: is it possible to write no logfile?

best wishes

Default settings are optimal (other than hash size or number of threads or such).

No, but we should add that option.
