Android UCI engine update: Cheng4 0.38.JA

Another great news i've heard yesterday was that, Martin Sedlak, the author of Cheng is back on duty.
Cheng, named without relation to China and simply stripped from "CHess ENGine", is a sort of speedy Gonzales when it comes to hit nodes per second records. Although its play level is not among the Top-10, being present in every TCEC event and causing problems to big ones from time to time is already a sign of appeal.

Thus, the development of Cheng restarted and first outcome is in our hands now with approximately 30 ELO added. Ported to Android today by Jim Ablett. This makes his 28th engine release for Android in January.

Download it HERE, plug it into your GUI and enjoy.
