Android UCI engine update: Komodo 9.2

The Android version of the reptile is finally updated from 9.1 to 9.2 following the PC version. Owners of the previous version can update their current installation for free via Google Play: HERE

The update is released a few days ago but due to intensive Rapidroid tournaments running on all my devices, i've remained away from the update notifications.

I expect none of the readers of this post will get that update after me. I'm probably the latest one.

Regarding the strength, i guess there's nothing extraordinary compared to 9.1. Meanwhile i will verify that statement and replace all previous rated games if necessary. That seems a little complicated as we can't have 9.2 vs 9.1 in a hundred games automated match. Maybe i should start replaying previous Rapidroid games and decide to keep replaying or not after 50 games, though it will be late to stop the replacement.

P.S.: After running a new round of Rapidroid using 9.2 and seeing it crushing all 3000+ engines easily, i change my mind now in favor of a full replacement of 9.1 with 9.2. Be it related to the thematic B92 opening used or not, 3459 ELO performance over 18 games is something serious.
