New Android XB engine: Joanna 2002.JA

Yet another old engine compiled by Jim Ablett for Android is Joanna 2002. With 1324 ELO on a PC and possibly 1150 on Android, Joanna promises the taste of revenge by granting to human kind a lot of wins versus a chess computer (!).
On my side, if eligible for tournament play, i'll be more than happy to include Joanna in Rapidroid experiment because by the nature of the preferred engine population, i need engines from every ELO segment from the strongest to the weakest one. Old engines are even better for any rating experiment because they can easily become trusted long term anchors as there are no updates to destroy the games already played. Sigh...

Now, your turn: if you wanna knock out a computer in chess, go download and try Joanna: HERE
