An incredible effort, with massive thanks to Ronald de Man for the tablebase code and to Bojun Guo for performing the calculations on his titanic machine for five straight months.

Woah awesome. I wonder if any new mates will be found that break the record.

The really big impact here is that anyone can download them.
For Lomonosov, unless you have the phone app, you have to pay for access.

Fantastic. I tested it with the latest development build (http://abrok.eu/stockfish/)
and it works really well. :smile:

One question though... is there a program that can display the results in a nice way?
Scid vs. PC has this great function where you click on a piece and it shows you the result based
on it's position, as in the diagram of the screenshot below where I clicked on the Black King
(= means that if the Black King were on this field then it is drawn, a black # means on this field
Black would be able to win). It is the easiest way to understand endgame positions and discover
unexpected set ups.

PGN for the long mate? I would like to see if I can spot a pattern.
