Time to release a new version

blogPosted by Peter Fendrich Tuesday, March 27 2007 22:18:17

The new version will be out in a day or so.
The version is 703. I used to have an extra zero in the version name like 0703. From now on I will remove that. 703 means 2007 mars...

I think that my new reduction functions will pay off in strength.
I hope that the tournyes out there will confirm this smiley

A new book learning scheme is developend but it is turned off in this version.
I will test it out better before releasing it.
Future versions will have more extensions, especially will I try to detect patterns for king attacks and maybe other types of attacks and threats.

My sparring partners these days are:
Ruffian 1.01
WildCat 7
The Baron

They represent a good variety of playing styles. Thank you Lars!

I check out my changes against them and will not update their version numbers even if they are upgraded. I need a stable test bench!

Maybe one day I even dare to include Glaurung in the future but that engine is still to strong for me and will maybe be forever...

Dann created a new book for Alaric with some secret weapons included. smiley
