Wow, thanks a lot for putting Weini in that list !

I'll just add that Weini supports up to 20 threads. You can configure that by copying "config.json" near the executable and change "threads" key inside or just using the "setoption threads N" (N being the number of threads) in Xboard. Every option available in Weini is configurable those ways.

Best regards

Thanks for the info, I had no time yet to check all options yet and I had no clue it is already smp.
I will update this tonight. Edit: already updated

I noticed one little thing though when running it the first time to be sure the win compile is ok here.
There is one option in the config which triggers an error message. (I just removed it after seeing it)
I think it was 'do_sortcheckbonus'. Probably you had removed it, but it remained in the config?

Yes there was a mistake do_sortcheckbonus versus do_sortchessbonus
The good one shall be do_sortcheckbonus both in the config and in the code. Maybe This is still wrong in 0.0.20.
Anyway this seems to loss elo when activated ...

Thanks again.

RubiChess 1.0

RubiChess supports Syzygy tablebase probing since 0.9, so there's probably a SYZ missing in the EGT column.

It's been quite a long time that we could greet a woman as one of our authors. A pleasant surprise.

Sorry to disappoint you, but AFAIK Vivien is a man (in French it is male and female)

Looking at the photo of the only GitHub contributor https://github.com/tryingsomestuff I guess Guenther is right :-)

Thanks missed this info and even more the rating classification also was old and meanwhile quite wrong.
Both items corrected.

I still hope that the photo is just an illustration.
