Blog "Chess Engines Diary" - needs a new laptop for chess engine tests

♔ We use for testing only 2 old laptops:
1. Acer - Intel Core i3-3217U ( 5 years old)
2. Lenovo - Intel Core i7-4710MQ is over 3 years old (He works 24 hours a day)

♕♞ A modern laptop that will be designed only for chess engine tests costs (with software) about $ 1000-1200 (4200-4500 PLN). We will no longer invest private money, and chess engine testing costs are big. That is why we are starting the collection for the purchase of a laptop for testing.

♕ Our blog "Chess Engines Diary" is visited by around 2,000-3.000 users daily. If only everyone paid 1 dollar - we will pay the required amount in one day!

Stockfish 17071507 - new version!

Stockfish, chess engine UCI

Leader rating list JCER = 3353
🔬 Author: Marco Costalba

Timestamp: 1500096518 

Move game_phase() to material.cpp 

For some reason, although game phase is used only in material, it is computed in Position. 

Move computation to material, where it belongs, and remove the useless call chain. 

No functional change.
