A couple of GitHub engines that haven't been mentioned here yet, both tagged as official releases with executables.

Jacksprat 1.0
https://github.com/differentprogramming ... t/releases

CrazyAra 0.6.0
https://github.com/QueensGambit/CrazyAr ... e/releases
CrazyAra looks interesting.

I should have read more closely - CrazyAra, as indicated by the name, plays Crazyhouse. I don't see anything for orthodox chess. Sorry if I wasted anyone's time by not mentioning this. Still, it does look like an interesting project.

I was testing out Jacksprat against AdaChess 3.6 and Tony's Chess 0.03, and it is around the same level of those engines.

Updated my crazyhouse section in the XB/UCI chronology (nearly forgot about it) ;-)

Jacksprat calls itself Small Chess.

Hmm, yes, some of the piece square tables are the same, as well as some similarity in I/O handling.

Axolotl is a java engine. The jar file is included in the package.
