Stockfish 16122510 - new version

Stockfish, UCI chess engine

Leader of the ranking list JCER = 3368

Explicitly use alpha+1 for beta in NonPV search (#939) 

Fixes the only exception, in razoring. 

The code already does assert(PvNode || (alpha == beta - 1)), and it can be verified by studying the program flow that this is indeed the case, also for the modified line. 

No functional change.
