And they will soon be joined by the latest Winter 2.0.
Here is what the author wrote about the new major release:
The primary change in this major release is due to more self play data to train a better network. Holes in elementary endgames have been closed, so play in many of those positions should be noticeably better. Windows binaries will be released soon! Self play results in DFRC bullet testing: Winter v2.0 vs Winter v1.0 ELO | 100.40 +- 7.99 (95%) CONF | 40.0+0.40s Threads=1 Hash=64MB GAMES | N: 5000 W: 2344 L: 938 D: 1718
