I wonder if that is a slower abrock compile, or if it is a specially compiled faster one ?

It is a faster compile by Kiran Panditrao.

No, they are from Kiran. Although the Linux binaries are fast enough, they are probably going to be from Abrok.eu

Daylen Yang:
The download page (https://stockfishchess.org/download/) has been updated with Kiran's Windows binaries. (Refresh if the page is cached.) I'll wait for Kiran to send the Linux binaries and I'll upload the Mac binaries soon. (Android binaries haven't been updated in a while...)
Pasquale:
Abrok's Linux binaries are fine.

We need only the windows 32 bit build from Kiran.

The guy who made the official compiles (Kiran Panditrao) has posted a 32 bit compile on the FishCooking forum:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/i3eomcqqsfxmv ... 2.exe?dl=0

This will be added to the official Stockfish page soon.

The download link on https://stockfishchess.org/ now includes the 32 bit compile.

New Shredder, new official Stockfish, new Crafty, new Komodo, new Andscacs, new Isa (shameless plug for Dany :) )... it's been a good week for computer chess.
