I have a new version of FabChess: https://github.com/fabianvdW/FabChess/r ... g/v.1.12.6



This version is a quality of life release.

-FabChess now (finally) supports the UCI option hash -which defaults to 256MB.
-Fixed FabChess crashing on rare occasions (1-2% of games at most)
-Added another evaluation feature giving bonus to a passer if our king is near/malus if enemy king is near.
-A lot of backend refactoring preparing SMP

I also lately made a 10 +0.1 gauntlet against popular engines in Fab's elo range (with all engines running on default settings, so there might have been some wrong settings for Hash values)

All in all this release I don't think this release is much stronger than the previous version

I wonder why it is always nearly impossible to learn an author's name on github. I have almost never succeeded in identifying an author. Of course I may be a hopeless searcher.
