It's been long time since I've made any posts on a chess forum. Back around 2004 I released an engine name Latista, which I later need to rename to Sinobyl due to trademark issues. Sinobyl was written in C++ and had an ELO just north of 2100.
I've just pushed to GitHub a new winboard engine of mine written in C#. I think it compares pretty favorably to other engines written in managed languages, but I guess we shall see. I estimate it's ELO to be around 2300.
I'm dedicating development of my engine to my daughter Nora Grace Oldre who was taken from us unexpectedly a few days before she was due to be born. About 90% of the work on it was done while my wife was pregnant with her, and I declared it functionally 'good-enough' the day before she left us, June 9th, in anticipation of not having very much free time in the future.

I know there are a few of you out there (or someone) who likes to make logo images for engines. Please contact me if you would like to because I would like to contribute some ideas on that.
