Does this mean, there will also be a new tablebase generator tool?

So far, I didn't find the old one on the reorganised FTP. - It was a good
resource for people who have a slow internet connection (modem dial-up). I
recommended sometimes to newcomers, to download that and generate the 4-piece
tbs. on their local machines, so that they didn't have to make long expensive
download sessions.

It would be a big help to new fans especially, if that (or a new) generator
executeable would be available again, too.

On this occasion, many thanks for providing all those tablebase data for free,
to you, to Prof. Bob and to everybody who has contributed.
