Good day all!

As usually : sources and Win32 Win64 executables are provided. Still try to make linux version.

Finally small uci bug fixed (Thanks to Roland Chastain)!

Best regards,
Alex Morozov

Wow, unexpected !

Do you have an expected strength increase compared with the previous release ?

I hope you can succeed in making your engine cross-platform, with a Linux version we could see it back at TCEC. And it's nice for people like me who primarily use Linux.

What wonderful news. The world's strongest Pascal engine has been updated! Blaise would be pleased. As would Wirth.

Thanks for the new version. I will do my best to test it before the next update in CCRL 40/40.

P.S. It will be nice to have booot as a github project as opposite to downloads from a dropbox :)

P.S.2 Рад видеть украинский движок идущий вверх в топ 10 :) Надеюсь что Игель догонит в скором времени Буут :)

I really love your engine! Do you plan on making it "TCEC hardware ready"?
Respecting someone also means to tell them the truth if they are talking bullshit.
