Not really any improvement since 0.53 ... A SMP/TC bug fix (thanks Graham ;-)) and some evaluation features but those last gives nothing against other engines while giving nearly +50elo in self test ... I was hoping that adding evaluation feature will give great elo boost but that's not the case ... :? :oops:

Please use 1.5.1 in your tests, as there is a significant elo difference between 1.4.2 and 1.5.1 ;)

Hello Everyone,

Graham found a few bugs in Igel 1.5.1 and I had to re-upload the package 1.5.1 that fixes them. The bugs were happening on the old cpus that do not have popcnt instruction and when testing the smp version of Igel. Since most of the people don't have old cpus and most of the people don't test Igel with lazy SMP I decided to substitute the binaries with the same version.

- Improving time management

This version is around strength of GreKo 2018.08 (2716) in my CCRL 40/4 tests:

I was ready to post my updates to Tunguska, so it's nice someone already did it, thanks!

It still pretty weak, but certainly ~100 ELO stronger than the previous version.

I;m sure it will keep improving. :)
Analysing seems not yet implemented?
(at least it does not work here.)

I've released FrankWalter 2.4.0 - https://github.com/ljgw/frankwalter/releases/tag/v2.4.0

the singlecore are smp versions are now in the same engine, using the standard name - and also I've implemented a bit of king-safety.

Should be better than 2.3.5, I finished at an amazing 5th place in the CSVN tournament in Amersfoort this weekend:-)
