This is latest development version of Toga here every once in a while for those who are interested. This is only a test version! It is not worth testing for CCRL/CEGT/IPON, as the release of TOGA II 4.0 is scheduled for June/July 2013.

The current version is about 30 elo stronger than Toga II 3.0 with equivalent compiles (scores ~56-57% in self-play ~6000 games at 15' + 0.05' and 60' + 0.05).
Only SLOW gcc compiles are provided in this package, and these are ~10% slower than the Intel compiles. If someone feels like making an Intel compile and/or compiles for other systems that would be great though Smile

If anyone would like to contribute to the Toga II project, any tests/bug reports/comments regarding this new Toga are appreciated. I hope you enjoy Toga II!
