Re: Houdini 2 is released

Yes, to sustain the development I've decided to go commercial with Houdini 2. I wonder if this will lead to legal complications. It won't, since RobboLito is public domain. Houdart can do whatever he wants with it. Peter Several early versions of RobboLito (still available at http://www.chesslogik....

Re: CoffeeHouse 2011 - a new Mac OS X application

In IE7 the bar does not even exist. Only after switching to Linux I could see the bar and get to the screenshots. They look more like something I would use for (say) Ultima than for Chess... The board + pieces is 2D, but then can be viewed at an angle in 3D. :shock: IE7 is from 2006. Please upgrade...

Re: JavaScript port of Sjeng

Do you actually get real multithreading with Web Workers or are they just emulated in the single JavaScript thread? As for NPS: that's very browser dependent, of course. Firefox 4 and Chrome should give the best results. According to MDN they are real OS-level threads, and section 1.2.6 of the spec...

Re: SSDF and Houdini?

Should the SSDF start testing Houdini and add it to its rating list? It will not happen. A more interesting poll might be what the SSDF should do if the ICGA find that Rybka breached their rules. I was not aware the SSDF was subject to the ICGA. Of course they aren't, but if the ICGA decides it's i...
