In parallel to TCEC-8 progressing stage by stage until an unexpected result, every stage becomes a pool on speculations whether Stockfish can take back the crown from Komodo.
No doubt, the head-to-head race makes the development compiles attracting. People are insterested to test new versions each and every day before the official update comes. Unstoppable incredible hunger...
Some days ago, we have seen 2015-09-07 version of Stockfish compiled by Peter Österlund. It's in my repository available for the most hungry ones :-)
After a little while, it's now too old as Jim Ablett compiled another dev't version dated 2015-10-08. This one is interesting because we have an arm7 compile from JA for the first time.
Remembering that a previous close tourney between Stockfish compiles revealed that JA compiles perform very well, the arm7 compile from JA might deserve attention.
If i have enough spare time remaining from endless working hours, i want to play another close tourney between Stockfish 6 official, dev 2015-09-07 and dev 2015-10-08.
Or should i push back my appetite and remain patient until Stockfish 7 official release comes?
