After hiatus that (unexpectedly) lasted almost 3 years I am pleased to be back in the game :wink:

Excellent news! :)

How much of a strength gain do you estimate for this version?

Great question, I'm curious myself! It seems to outplay previous version at around 55% vs 45%. I guess 25-50 ELO points would be a good outcome.

All the time. In every conversation. You must post. Something. It's like you just can't help yourself.

Michael - the new version seems to run very slowly on a non-popcount computer.
