A happy new year in advance to all members of the forum. May all your wishes come true!

A special thanks to all chess programmers and also to all testers, who devote their time and share their hobby with us.

Well, my next post for sure will include a new release in 2020... :)

Well, I could not resist and compiled a new version of current github master of Delocto.
Last binaries were from February 2018, but there were so much essential changes that I wanted to
have a new build for my hardware.

https://github.com/moterink/Delocto/commits/master

I took the freedom to push the version number to '0.61', which was my only change to the source code.
A quick test, as sanity check, confirmed that it must be quite stronger than the previous 0.6 version available.
Just 20 games at speed tc 40/90s, but LOS already says 99.9% in favour of '0.61'.

Code: Select all

Score of Delocto_06-64 vs Delocto_061-64: 1 - 13 - 6 [0.200]
Elo difference: -240.8 +/- 159.1, LOS: 0.1 %, DrawRatio: 30.0 %

Test_DeloctoDev
RWBC Win7U-64 Q8200 2.33Ghz Nvidia GT 710, 2020.01.01
                      Score     12345678901234567890 Percnt
-----------------------------------------------------------
 1: Delocto_061-64  16.0 / 20   1110=111=111=111===1  80.0%  (+13 -1 =6)
 2: Delocto_06-64    4.0 / 20   0001=000=000=000===0  20.0%  (+1 -13 =6)
-----------------------------------------------------------
20 games: +8 =6 -6
