Upgrading my Visual Studio SDK version may have caused some issues for some users, so
I've created a new set of binaries...

I'm having problems with Fire 7 and Arena. Can someone else test? For self-play matches it works ok, but when playing vs another engine it gets unresponsive and loses on time. Need to know if it's only my config or a general problem. Happens more often with short time controls.

Why does it want to download a *.txt file? My Chrome Browser won't even allow me to download it.

Edge downloads as a txt file, but then you can rename it to 7z and all is OK
.

Opinions expressed here are my own, and not necessarily those of the CCRL Group.

ok thanks a lot Tirsa

Others have reported problems as well...
I'll try to get to the bottom of it in the coming days
When/if I do, I'll release version 7.1
