We all know that the latest dev build is sorted by date and build number. Which one does the “Stockfish 9” and "Stockfish 8’ radio button use?
Greetings! We actually have a dev build for Stockfish 7 as well. Here’s the corresponding versions:
- Stockfish 7: 20160102-2026
- Stockfish 8: 20161101-0919
- Stockfish 9: 20180131-1041
