Thank You!

Great engine. It would be fantastic to have this engine for Android too. Is that possible?

Here only one example (but there are more examples)

Unfortunately, but there is needed some next new version 11.9 (?)
To solve some positions it is better to use the previous 11.5 version.
I don't know when I will do it.

Not, I understand that you can be tired the series of Sting 11.x but it will end with the next version.

Could someone post an example position where Sting 11.5 performs better than Sting 11.8?
