Chess engine: Stockfish 22032822 NNUE for Windows and Linux (+4,35 ELO)

Stockfish - UCI chess engine, compiled by Michael Chaly Rating CEDR=3506 (2 place) Timestamp: 1648499829 In movepicker increase priority for moves that evade a capture This idea is a mix of koivisto idea of threat history and heuristic that  was simplified some time ago in LMR - decreasing reduction for moves that evade a capture.  Instead of doing so in LMR this patch does it in movepicker - to do this it  calculates squares that are attacked by different piece types and pieces that are located  on this squares and boosts up weight of moves that make this pieces land on a square that is not under threat. Boost is greater for pieces with bigger material values. Special thanks to koivisto and seer authors for explaining me ideas behind threat history.

Chess engine: Kayra 1.3 (is a Stockfish based)

  From author: Kayra chess engine is a Stockfish based engine and it's an early development version. I have been working on this chess engine for a short time. Kayra is not an another Stockfish clone. I made very serious changes in the most critical parts of Stockfish, especially in the evaluation section. I made very agressive changes more than 50 parameters in the evalution code. I made very aggressive changes at psqt and pawns sections. I changed more than 250 parameters at psqt and pawns section. I weakened Stockfish a lot at the start of all these critical changes, but I'm finally getting close to balancing it. Although I made very critical changes in Stockfish codes and more than 300 parameters, the fact that Kayra didn' t perform badly gave me hope for the future. This version of Kayra is an early test version. If it reaches the level I want, there is no doubt that I' ll publish Kayra as open code source chess engine.
