Floyd 0.6 released

Post by mvk » Sat Oct 17, 2015 6:16 pm

With tons of support from the talkchess forum during last week, I really hope I have ironed out the reported crashes/hangups and other reported issues. Some fixes are really bugs and some are workarounds for specific GUI problems. The program is still very weak, that is a feature :-)

Download page is https://marcelk.net/floyd/

Any new problems you encounter, please don't hesitate to share either here, by PM or by e-mail.

From the release notes:

Version 0.6

- Workaround Arena problem causing all system memory to be used (reported by Ruxy S.)
- Workaround Cutechess GUI problem that prevented changing the hash size
- Fix crash under Cutechess GUI when using 128 MB hash (reported by Antonio A.)
- Fix some crashes in late end games
- Fix hangup/crash in win64 version after ~30 moves under Shredder GUI (reported by Gabor S.)
- Added basic reductions, giving some additional elo due to deeper search
- Disable null move in late end games, for better end game handling and mate finding
- Added support for Raspberry Pi 1 & 2
- Include official 130x65 logo (thanks to Daniel Schweinert for permission to use his artwork in Floyd)

Many thanks to all listed above and special thanks to J.B. Buijs for the win64 support and excellent debugging assistence for one of my worst bugs.
