Stockfish 2.3 JA by the Stockfish Team
Changes:

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.

Thank you.

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

Best Regards

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.
