> Some make it sound as if Rybka 4 is the end of the line for Rybka UCI and that future development will all be on Rybka Remote?
As Vas already said, this is not the case. Maybe the cluster project drives innovation for the retail engine. And it's not clear yet if the Rybka cluster will really be a success.
I want to have the program in my personal computer, and spend with it all the time I want. Simple as that. And regards to the expensive price, if I had that money I honestly prefer to buy a monster hardware with 16 or even more cores, to use Rybka 4 UCI.
The Rybka Cluster is a parallel track which complements and feeds the public Rybka versions. Almost all of the work which is really specific to the Rybka Cluster has been done by Lukas. 99.9% of the work which I have done for the Rybka Cluster has long-term value and will be used in future public Rybka versions in various forms. This even includes the extreme form of tree splitting which the cluster uses.
It will still take some more time to get everything set up, though. In the meantime, users of the public Rybka versions (which is the vast majority of this forum) will need to be a little bit patient. I'm sorry about that. I'd love to have something better for you, but at this point the most important thing is to set things up for the long haul.
ps. I wish everyone a great 2011!
I am kind of surprised at how bad that flamed out. I REALLY like Donovan and want him to end his career on some high notes!!
I'm sure that McNabb will start somewhere next year, but apparently not in Washington.
> Yeah, I was pretty amazed what a train wreck that turned out to be. It was a combination of ultra-demanding coach, a very laid-back quarterback, and a bad season by said quarterback.

Is this what we're paying you for? (or, just one of the things! )
Just focus on fixing the R4 bugs, and all will be good.
you using this vas?
> Software guys are always issue updates, don't they?
Some do, some don't. Shredder is an example where you don't get any.
An annual release cycle with no updates in between does come with the risk that you have highlighted
> Shredder is an example where you don't get any.
And an example where you don't need any. I've yet to find a bug in their engine or GUI, to my surprise when I was challenged. People have reported crashes and the like, but not facing those I can only assume they're system issues.
It seems to me that Shredder has a much better beta testing process than Rybka. Different priorities, much more solid engine, though also much weaker.
I have never had an issue with Shredder products!! I have Shredder for Android as well and it is awesome!!
Shredder was the first engine/GUI I ever purchased so I do have a soft spot for it. :) But that soft spot has been rewarded by Shredder's consistency and quality. (same goes for Hiarcs!) And Shredder also provides a great opening book and access to the huge book via internet connection.
