Any chance for Micah to be in CCRL? :-)

It seems to me that Micah is in a rapidly developing phase. I thought I'd wait till it settles. Other testers might have different views, though.

Hi Folkert,

I noticed that the downloads for Micah 0.3 and 0.5 on your page https://vanheusden.com/Micah/files/old/ are the same.

FabChess Engines

FabChess Engine v1.8 (Plus Referee) by fabianvdW


FabChess

UCI compliant chess engine in Rust. Features:

Movegeneration

Magic bitboards for slider pieces and look-up tables for the rest of the pieces. Using only legal move generation. Speed about 100MNPS with bulk counting, about 20-25MNPS without bulk counting in perft 6 from startpos.

Search

Principal Variaton Search Aspiration Window Null Move Pruning Futility Pruning Late move reductions Check extensions Move sorting with: Relative History Heuristic, Killer Heuristic, TT Lookup Quiesence search with SEE Pruning and standing pat.

Evaluation

Is yet to support Texel tuning which will probaply increase Elo by quite a margin. Tapered eval from Stockfish. Safety Table is also still a copy from Stockfish's implementation.

Referee

FabChess also comes with a referee which supports 1 vs 1 Engine tourneys for any UCI compliant chess engine. The referee can load any opening and supports any Timecontrol. It can also load different epd testsuits (such as the Strategic Test suite).

I see there is a new version of Nawito on Github:

https://github.com/etorresf/Nawito1906

Although it has not been tagged as a release, there is an executable in the bin folder, and release notes, so it seems to be a quasi-official release. Oddly, there is also another repository for the same engine by the same author, at https://github.com/etorresf/Nawito-Chess-Engine, containing only source.

I have been getting a lot of server errors when accessing GitHub today, and this is confirmed by the incidents mentioned at https://www.githubstatus.com/, so I am not sure how reliable the links will be for now.
