Just released is the free UCI engine Aristarch 4.4.
It looks like the author, Stefan Zipproth from Germany,
has managed a major breakthrough. All tests point to a
huge improvement since version 3.968 - maybe even upto
200 ELO. Here are some results from tests in Germany:

Aristarch 4.4 - Gandalf 5.1      11-9
Aristarch 4.4 - Crafty 18.15     10.5-9.5
Aristarch 4.4 - Little Goliath   12-8

The author verfies in his readme file that "the current
version scores a bit better than Crafty 18.13." The playing
style can be configured through 23 different UCI parameters.
First thing I noted was that Aristarch likes to play King's Indian
as black! Here's the link for download:
