New Android UCI engine: Clubfoot r2293.JA

A newborn, recent chess engine by Shawn Chidester comes to Android thanks to Jim Ablett. I hope it works well and gets eligible for Rapidroid.

It's interesting to discover that the engine developer has only released the source and not any compile. Perhaps, Clubfoot is the first engine in history which has been compiled for Android before PCs.

There are a dozens of engines still being tested with gauntlets for introduction in the rating list. That's why i won't be able to feedback more info about Clubfoot very soon. JA is so quick to compile on-the-fly that there's always a waiting list on my Android chess todo's.

Meanwhile you may already download it and try before me on your devices: HERE
