Android XB engine update: Dirty 030411.JA

Dirty, co-written by Pradu Kannan, A.Valverde and F.Bluemers was already available, again compiled by Jim Ablett. But i could not include it in any of my testing experiments because under Chess for Android, the previous version 1103b always insisted on playing instant moves regardless of the time setting. Fischer clock time control provided by the new CfA didn't help either. Dirty played instantly with 2'+0" time control too.

I hope the new version (how new by the way? Both are 2011) comes compatible with requested time settings. Don't forget Dirty is not too weak, it's expected to deliver 2600 ELO.

P.S.: Yes. It works well after 4 test games with 5 sec/move. It leaved 1 sec per move unused (safety?) but the usage is constant. So, it will be very acceptable with 10 secs and beyond.
