How to install ceres as an uci chess engine!
Fritz 17 doesn't conclude that as an uci engine!
Can anyone please tell me the steps to setup the Ceres engine?!
Thank you mates!

Ceres Release Notes - version 0.91

Includes the improvements from 0.90-rc1 (Linux support, new backend without LC0.DLL dependency, search improvements, new BENCHMARK and BACKENDBENCH command line modes)

Additionally:

Enhanced time management, especially against Alpha/Beta style opponents
Further simplified installation: includes a weight file (703810) and pre-populated Ceres.json file in the box to allow immediate running without any configuration (thanks to Chad for this suggestion)
The speed of loading weights files is somewhat improved, and multi-gpu weight sharing (to reduce GPU memory usage) is now functional
Resolves a number of minor bugs impacting play
Tests suggest circa 5 to 10 Elo improvement versus 0.90-rc1, with hopefully yet more significant gains versus Stockfish
Note that CUDA 11.3 or greater improves the backend speed by approximately 12% on higher-end (and possibly also mid-range) GPUs
Note that the NVIDIA 1060, 1070, and 1080 GPUs are not supported by the new Ceres backend because they do not support fast FP16. Instead, users of these cards can fallback to the prior LC0.DLL backend by adding the following line to Ceres.json:

"UseLegacyLC0Evaluator": true

Ceres 0.91a

Minor update to v0.91, fixing a serious bug causing more than 100x slowdown for searches run using certain time controls (e.g. seconds per move).

Code:

v0.91b

Minor update with fixes for improved compatibility with other programs:

Values shown by Nibbler GUI when configured to show Q were incorrect
Tournaments run using Octagon manager would falsely report time forfeit for Ceres because they relied upon sometimes incorrect Ceres self-reported elapsed search time
