I publish this version of Andscacs. Is not an official one. If nobody finds anything bad on it I will publish a new official version in a few days.

www.andscacs.com/andscacs087215.zip

I decided to do like this as it has quite a few changes:

* Speed improvements.
* Time management improvements.
* Now is able to manage positions with up to 8 of any piece type, like this mate in 4 one, that previously make it crash:
qqqqqqqk/7q/8/8/8/8/Q7/KQQQQQQQ w - - 0 1
* Added Fathom Syzygy.
* Solved bug with Winboard.
* Solved bug in pondering.
* Added contempt parameter. Just a raw substitution of draw value.
* And as always bug solving and a lot of tuning of evaluation and search.

Is maybe 20-25 elo stronger in self play, without counting Syzygy.

So a more serious and complete version.

I would like to thank Ronald for Syzygy and Basil for Fathom. Also a lot of thanks to some people that have run some or a lot of tests for Andscacs: Terence Rattray, Johann Waeselynck, Deeds TacKtyK, and one of Adam Kostas.

I published a new version. Is not much stronger. Anyway I decided to publish it so Frank has the best possible version for his last test in http://amateurschach.de/.

http://www.andscacs.com/andscacs089.zip
(Windows and Linux versions)

Changes:
* Improved various evaluation parameters, mainly about king safety.
* Solved little bugs.
* Speed improvements.
* Improved some endgames.

It's maybe 10 elo stronger, but as there are a few changes related to king safety, is possible that is more than this at the usual time control of tests like the CCRL ones.

Also it has this patch
https://github.com/official-stockfish/Stockfish/commit/0d9a9f5e985c13852cf9f29767e95f295bb29575
for speedup on Windows servers with more than 64 cores. Its untested for the moment. Thanks to Texel and Stockfish for it!

Thanks to Ipmanchess for testing it, and also to Terence Rattray for doing some tests!
