New Android UCI engine: Strelka 5 JA

I think this one will rock our smartphones and tablets.

Strelka is one of those countless strong engines spread from Russia, widely blamed for cloning issues here and there. Repeating a lot of statements and claims makes no sense here. Instead, let's just keep in mind that Strelka has incorporated ideas from Rybka 3, Ippolit, Houdini, Critter and Stockfish, as well as own innovations according to its author Jury Osipov. So be it.

Knowing Strelka 5.1 can hit 3139 ELO on a PC is enough to predict how seriously it can compete with current toppers. We may easily expect 2900+ from v5 compiled by Jim Ablett.

To my side, i hope Strelka will play fine automated tournaments without issues, so that i can't wait for pushing it inside Rapidroid. Another 2900+ engine certainly add more excitement to the top.
