Yeeeeees ! One year (almost) after the last release, I'm pleased to announce a new version of my little engine Orion ! A lot of changes, with the main part of progress coming from evaluation new terms and (genetical) automated-tuning.

For all who are interested, more info and download on my website (see signature) :)

Improving Orion is sometimes... a nightmare ?! You try some ideas, test them for hours, and then... nothing. But, one day, one change make the difference, and you're back on the track ! Thanks Graham, and thanks to all testers, for testing our engines: without all these tournaments and rating lists, our efforts would be in vain !

Yes, I'm happy ! But I prefer waiting to see how the new version will deal in "real" conditions. I'm not sure of the way I assess the elo progression (I download CCRL games, add games played by the new version against 30 different opponents - among which Topple 0.3.5 ! - and launch bayeselo with the actual rating of v0.5. I think expert advices are needeed :-) In the meanwhile, congrats for your (so strong) engine !
