Thank you for the kind words, I hope you enjoy HoneyXI and its related engines,

https://github.com/MichaelB7/Stockfish/releases/tag/XI

Exe's available for macOS, Windows and Linux.

With Linux officially dropping support for 32 bit software in their next major release due in April of 2020, I have not provided any 32 bit Linux exe's.

The Pi exe's are provided by Allan Cooper and Lucas Monge provides the 32 bit exe's for Windows, everything else by yours truly.
