In ultra fast games 2.3 seems to be much stronger than 2.2.2

ELO increase is very limited, it is mainly a minor release to flush
the accumulated work. From the user point of view the biggest thing is
that SF should not crash anymore even with many threads because a
nasty SMP bug causing a rare but repetitive crash has been fixed.
As always: Thank you very much to all Stockfish team!

Thanks Jim, very kind and helpful as usual.
Just a couple of quick notes.
1) For people compiling themself the Stockfish bench signature is: 5416292 It means that if you run ./stockfish bench then it should show 5416292 nodes searched. This means that the compile is correct.
2) For people running / using under Android / iPhone with more than one thread, I'd suggest to set "Use Sleeping Threads" option. This allows to save power and battery and strength is practically the same.
