I tried to download some of your compiles (Stash and Vault), but my Windows defender stopped both downloads
Virus detected Trojan:Win32/Wacatac.B!ml
I tried again with the same result.

Hi Viktor,

Other people have reported this issue as well. I don't know what is causing it. Downloads are completely safe.
You can add an exception in Windows defender to allow the download.

Here are the virustotal reports >

At least Vault is additionally compressed with UPX 4.23 this makes it suspicious for quite some virus scanners.
I guess Jim wants to save space for his cloud storage.

I have hundreds of unreleased versions/unknown programs compiled here, not sure if I should make them available too ;)

Hi Guenther,

That's strange. What about the generic clang version ?

Jim.
Surprisingly (or not really, because I believe you pgo'ed vs. bench?) with bench it's a bit different.
The clang bench is a bit faster than the gcc bench 4.86x sec. vs. 5.55x sec. (several runs), but as the diff
in start pos is so overwhelming I won't trust the bench over real games here.
Probably a test of both versions over lots of games (10000s') would reveal more truth.

Guenther

P.S.
Well, the original 0.4b which has just two non-game playing relevant commits less, even has a better bench
for both avx2 and bmi2 of around 4.2x sec -4.3xsec for both. (but 5-6% lower nps for startpos, not conclusive)

Out of curiosity I did a test between both versions and the result was even more significant than expected
for a 22-23% nps increase for the gcc version in searching from startpos.

Not sure though I have ever seen that bench and search from startpos contradict for the same binary.
Usually I only decide via search from startpos with go infinite (or go depth XX) runs, which of my compilations (or from other people)
are faster.

Hi Jim,

I think it should not be called plain 1.6, because it is 27 commits (and 3 years later - last commit 2023) above the official release 1.6
and also has uci support now. Also I think this should be mentioned in a readme too.

You might consider either adding the commit number/sha/date of last commit, or increase the version number.

I've updated it now with latest commit number and updated the readme with all changes since last official release.
