Thanks both for this wonderful engine.
And please let me add my modest personal congratulations for your title.

What are your intentions regarding the bookbuilder? Maybe you remember we had a
few mail exchanges about it.
IMHO it is an incredibly promising tool that almost nobody seemed to praise to
date at its true value.
All those  who like building by hand an opening repertoire (like me) should have
a look at it.
If you wish to take a break from engine tuning but soon feel you should take
back that poor old PC that your wife had just thrown away in the garden, than
maybe the bookbuilder could be a nice hobby in the next months?




And just a dream : an improved version of your prototype modified so as to be
compatible with Polyglot and Fruit book format ...
