Stockfish 3 Official JA Windows/Linux builds available

Stockfish 3 JA by The Stockfish Team
This is Stockfish 3

The big news of this version, and the reason why we have bumped version number to 3 is not due to ELO increase (that anyhow should be interesting) nor to some cool feature, but it is due to the new super awesome testing framework that Gary setup and currently runs on

http://54.235.120.254/tests

This is really a new beginning for Stockfish development. A development that now is fully open and in just few weeks has already attract many people willing to test their ideas and some of their contributions have been already committed upstream: Lucas Braesch, Ryan Schmitt, Jean-Francois Romang, James Undery, Hiraoka Takuya, jhellis, Joona Kiisky (a great return!) and of course Gary Linscott.

As a technical note for people willing to compile themselves, this time you will find also the C++11 porting along the usual C++ sources. This is 100% fully functional equivalent of the std version, but on some platforms and with some compilers (like gcc 4.8) the C++11 binary may be even faster, but it's up to you to try and to verify on your preferred platform :-)

A special thank to Jim for his always precious support in compiling the release version and to Daylen, our stockfishchess.org webmaster that silently and without fanfare has built a really beautiful site and a fully operational support service.

Have fun
Stockfish Team

Will be available from the Stockfish website very shortly, but in
the meantime you can download from here >

I haven't included an Android compile yet because I'm having trouble. I'm working on it at the moment.

JP.
Stockfish src code with c++11 enhancements. Functionally identical. In testing it produces slightly faster builds than the c++ code.
The 64 bit JA Linux binary is built using this code. Windows builds didn't run, at least for me.

Ok Thanks Jim!

I just made a compile with the normal src..and it is indeed faster on my system!
Now i will try this src_c11 and make a compile from it!

Any Windows users wanting to try compiling the c++11 src code will need to use a cutting edge version of mingw >

or
(version -- 4.8 experimental std thread)

Finally great news! But note: JA compile 4% SLOWER than autocompile from http://abrok.eu/stockfish/ dated 30.4. in Pentium 4 prosessor (bench ran many times with same difference).

My compiles seem a bit crippled on Intels. May a bit better on Amds.
