I'm sure that Andrew will make an official release of a new version when he is ready.
As things stand, 11.25 is still the latest official release.

I compiled a popcnt version. It seems to work fine, but kinda strange that it compiled it 1 second... with stockfish it takes about a minute. But I ran it in the fritz GUI and everything seems fine, I get 18,000 knps with my ryzen 1700 using 16 threads.

I uploaded it to zippyshare if anyone wants it.

C++ compile times can get pretty unruly with all the templates and as all the layers of inheritance getting compacted due to optimization. So a quick Ethereal compile is expected. I like to think I have the easiest build system for the top end of engines.

As Graham said, I will make a release when ready, which will be V11.50 if I get there, or maybe sooner if ... life happens ...
