New Version

Well, I promised before new year but that was a little too early....
I actually have a new version. It is SMP and with some other changes.

It still is a little shaky though, so I will test it further a little while and then call for beta testers.
It should work with 4 threads but I am not sure what will happen with more than that. I don't have more cpu's in my computers!

Hi Fransisca,

In fact your question is a FAQ...

I have no good answer. I don't want to promise anything at this point.

Actually I created a new chess program in the new programming language Google's Go but it's not a serious effort for a new chess program. It was just to see if the language is good enough.

I'm happy to see that people still use Alaric smiley

It was 2008 that I made the last real work with the engine.

Hi Martin,

I lost all my motivation for this project...

I tried to keep it up by promising further work and a new release but it didn't help.

This happened before to me and I always came back to chess programming :-)

No promises but...

Hi, is there any chance for the release of a new (mp) version? I always thought that your engine is among the most interesting new developements.
