Can you please stop posting about random programs from Github that have no official releases? If it's not an official release, no one cares. You annoy the authors by prematurely announcing their programs before they are complete, and you annoy the rest of us by wasting our time announcing programs that half the time aren't even capable of playing, like DMRChess. What do you not understand about this?

I don't agree!
Personally I enjoy the announcements a lot. Often I take a look what was released.
@Norbert: please continue!

You don't understand. It is about 'pseudo' announcements of github accounts, which sometimes only contain a readme,
(with future goals or whatever), or totally incomplete programs even missing a search...

Hello,
I'm the author of dmrchess. I am developing this chess engine in the free time I get. It's not fully functional yet, but I hope to get this working in next few days time. Already I see some messages related to this which is very great & wonderful. Thank you very much!

Thanks,
Kalyan

Hi Norbert,

Thank you very much for grabbing the link. I am developing my chess engine in my free time. I wish to keep the steady pace and I hope to get my engine working in next few days. I appreciate your message and thank you very much for the same.

I will post binaries for Windows (32 & 64 bit), Linux (32 & 64 bit) & for MacOS (64-bit) when it's complete.

I agree completely.

My solution: never test programs not under the 'Releases' tab.
I understand. I am sorry for this. I was planning to post to talkchess once I have dmrchess playing chess. Please look forward to testing my engine as early as I have it available.

Xadreco 5.84.180626.005852 https://github.com/drbeco/xadreco/releases contains no Windows binary
Thank you Norbert

This is the latest Xadreco release (some builds ahead), and the "official" supported version today.

Then next steps are:

v5.xx Better opening book support
v6.xx If not Tablebases, then a redo on opening book
v7.xx It is still in schedule; probably it will be or tablebase (if that is not on version 6) or new parallel version using threads instead of fork(). Will see.
