I just refreshed the binaires - fixing the accounting issues for nodes.
Removing the code that artificially inflated the the node count:

nodes += (1/7 * nodes)

nps will be down 1/7, solution times will remain the same.

A silly line of code.

I am now pleased to make the source available to everyone, as it is my opinion that the allegations are true and the evidence provided is overwhelming.
We are all allowed our opinions and are free to express them and we should encourage that. But I think I mentioned in the Engine Origins post, I don't agree that people should go further and act as judge, jury and executioner in cases like this. Unfortunately in the chess community that seems to be normal.

I bought H6 back in January so not particularly gripped to see someone 'giving' it out for free.
