R3 Release Note states: "Rybka 3 is the latest UCI chess engine from the Rybka line. Our previous version, Rybka 2.3.2a, is now nearly 14 months old, so the changes are extensive."

Well, it has almost been 14 months now, I wonder if R4 will be born soon and what the headline will be . . .

"Rybka 4 is the latest UCI chess engine from the Rybka line. Our previous version, Rybka 3, is now nearly 14 months old, so the changes are not just extensive but truly unbelievable - in fact they are so unbelievable that we have decided not to release - far too dangerous - long live Rybka 3!"

I wonder how do you define almost. We haven't even completed 13 months since the appearance of Rybka 3 in public so i guess it's not logical to say "it's been almost 14 months".

Defining almost 90% of something as almost is almost logical in my view :)

I think when we have completed 12 months and 25 days, it's more logical to say that we have completed almost 13 months and not almost 14 months.

My version of 'almost' is the same as Vas's when he says 'we are almost there'!  :-)

No matter how you slice it, it's a long time to wait for bug fixes. But hey I guess thats going off topic.

The last modified date in the Rybka 3 engine .exe file is 29.07.2008 so the engine is almost 15 months old.

In that post you stated Rybka 4 is of very little value to you. So why do you start a thread about Rybka 4?

I guess he was a bit ironic ;)

He did not say not interested in Rybka 4, but in R4;

Or if you prefer R3+ R4- ... :)

So in fact you agree with him ;)
