New release Pedone 1.7

Post by Fabio Gobbato » Tue Jan 16, 2018 8:02 pm

I have released a new version of my engine.

Android 32 and 64 bit available
Improved passed pawns evaluation
Added large pages allocation for the hash table
Improved time management
More aggressive late move pruning
Added countermove heuristic
Reduce bad captures
Improved history heuristic
Improved strength levels
Some speed optimizations

It's about 30 elo stronger than 1.6 at short time control. ...
