New release Pedone 1.9

Post by Fabio Gobbato » Fri Mar 08, 2019 7:21 pm

I have just released a new version of my engine.

The changes:
Improved history
Improved singular extension
Don't generate underpromotions at low depths
Improved root move ordering
Improved aspiration window
New reduction formula
Improved late move pruning
Evaluate pawn mobility
Evaluation tuning
Improved strength limit feature
Support for 7men syzygy

It's about 60 elo stronger than 1.8

Pedone has no clue what a wrong colored bishop is in the endgame. It thinks it can promote the a/h pawn although the bishop Color is wrong.
I would fix this. It's the difference between +9.99 and 0.00

I have decided to add only a little endgame knowledge in the evaluation function and I recommend to use the engine with syzygy to give the correct score of the position.

Hi!

The download link has expired. Can I still get the engine? Thanks
