Ceres 0.87 and 0.88 were released the last few days

https://github.com/dje-dev/Ceres/releases

Endamat (Chess) was released as standalone today as a new uci engine.
It is/was part of Affinity Chess written in Python.
The author Elias Nilsson (aka eligolf@talkchess) compiled a binary for it today in a new repo.
I will add it tonight to the XB/UCI chronology.

Stockfish 13 is announced for the weekend (most likely)

Really? Isn't it around +30-35 compared to SF12? Looks too soon for a release.
