Gaviota engine, v0.75.7 release (UCI)

Post by michiguel » Tue Jun 08, 2010 9:47 am

A new version of the engine is available. Main change is that it now support the UCI protocol and many features, and solved issues, double book, bit bases on the fly, GTB restarting etc. etc.

Do not expect a change in strength. If there is any, it will be tiny because of the new time management.

Check Change Log for details.

You can get Linux and Windows, 32 and 64 bit version at the download page
Tools to compress and verify the tablebases have been separated in a different zip file.

Will a Mac OS X binary be provided? :lol:

We need to get Dann a Mac, or find a Mac user (whom programmers trust with their source codes) to provide OS X binaries of chess engines.

Running Windows binaries via Wine (usually) works, but it would be nice to have native OS X binaries.

I think I can go to the library at my University and make one (a couple of blocks towards the lake Michigan in summer is nice) . It should not be difficult, I hope. You are the first to request it :-)

Thanks Miguel,

Just one note, there seems to be a bug with using all cores in Fritz 12GUI at least.

PS: 64bit version

What is the symptom?

If the core usage sometimes come down to 1 for a little while, it is expected. Most of the time (>90%) it will be a full speed.

Wow, it didn't take like 8 years :lol:

Thanks for the new release; UCI is a great feature. It's so much easier to just install it normally vs. WB2UCI. And as a bonus, it should work in Aquarium now.

BTW, does it support any UCI2 features like Multi-PV and searchmoves?
