Turns out in the dev version of Ethereal, he replaced whatever previous code he was using for endgames with a NNUE net, presumably trained using his trainer.
Looks like the NNUE version of Ethereal is headed off to TCEC Season 20.

I guess Andrew was right about this being the final release of Ethereal, but for non-AVX2 computer users.

Not a real release. Its not possible right now to compete with the SF derivatives.

I was referring to Ethereal 12.75 being the final release for non-AVX2 computer users, not the Ethereal going to TCEC Season 20.
