Komodo 2.01 is out!

Post by Don » Thu Jun 09, 2011 8:18 pm

We have just released the latest version of Komodo.

Get it here: http://komodochess.com

We are breaking with the usual naming convention and this will be called version 2.01 instead of the expected 1.4 - future versions will be 3, 4, etc. Version 2 was a beta release that a few tester received, thus 2.01

Komodo 2.01 has many bugs fixed and is significantly stronger than Komodo 1.3. It contains evaluation improvements and search enhancements in almost every area and some original ideas of our own.

Currently I have the 64 bit versions posted for Linux and Windows, but I will get 32 bit version posted soon as well as a version for Macs.

I am also working on getting some faster binaries compiled with the help of Jim Ablett and Dann Corbit, but due to some compiler issues that will be later. However the supplied binaries are pretty good, just not quite as good as what Jim Ablett has been able to produce.

You can get the latest versions of Komodo here: http://komodochess.com

Much thanks to Dann Corbit and Jim Ablett for having the patience to make binaries (over and over again.) Dann Corbit was also especially helpful in locating some serious memory related bugs in Komodo. Aart Bik was kind enough to build and test versions of Komodo that run on the Android. Thanks also to Clemens Keck who helped me test as well as other testers.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

Don and Larry

I don't have a way to test the sse4 support on 64 bit windows, but do you have any problems with the non-sse4 version? I will get some help to find any problems.

Yes of course! But it may be a couple of days.

Yes, there will be a 32 bit release.
Those still running 16 bit Windows or 8 bit CP/M are out of luck, though.

Ok, thanks guys. :) Not sure why I have to give up my good ol' 8 bit stuff though. Next thing you know we will be going to something like 256 bit stuff in another couple of hours or so... :)
