The second nice surprise which came in the engine package sent by Valery Kotelnikov is an alternative build of Ivanhoe that i've been searching all over the web without success since long ago.
It wouldn't be a crucial requirement if the build 9.46h could perform as expected, precisely said, if it could use hash memory. Although the engine runs okay, it has issues related to the way it was compiled:
* Uses no hash memory at all regardless of the setting
* Uses all available cores or crashes if the user sets another value
Given that Rapidroid ELO of Ivanhoe is only ~2700 vs 2900+ expected, any other alternative is welcome. Now that 9.47c Beta is in the pocket, i can check whether this build works better than 9.46h.
