Android UCI engine update: armFish 2018.02.11 to 2018.02.19

ArmFish is a project based on the assembly code to achieve the highest speed with Stockfish engine. A lot of updates have rained during February, so frequently that i thought it would be easier to share them all together, in a single post.

ArmFish and MateFish are provided side by side, bearing in mind that MateFish is a specific version of ArmFish, dedicated to find mating attacks quicker rather than breaking ELO records.

Android UCI engine update: CT800 1.20

CT800 is an average level engine released by Ratmus Althoff who recently concentrated on compiling for Android and finally managed to obtain working binaries.

CT800, in fact, was born as a dedicated chess computer idea and it was designed by Rasmus Althoff.  The original CT800 featured an ARM Cortex M4 microcontroller of an Olimex H405 board that operates up to 168 Mhz, with 1 MB of flash memory, 192+4 kB of SRAM, and multiple I/O and USB connectors, with a 4x20 character text display, two leds, and a 4x4 + 1 keypad as peripherals aka user interface. Voltage source is due to four NiMH rechargeable AA batteries or external 5 V DC power supply.

The "chess computer" CT800
CT800's firmware is developed by Rasmus Althoff, released under the GPL Version 3. The chess playing software is an ARM port of George Georgopoulos' open source engine NG-play including a KPK bitbase by Marcel van Kervinck.
