Nanook Chess v0.17 is close to be ready

On the way of the v0.2, I'm developing the version v0.17, implementing PVS algorithm and late move reduction. I still have some bug that I'm resolving, but this version is really quicker than the previous one.
I will keep updating about the test resuts and new functionality during this week.

I started to develop the version 0.2 of Nanook Chess, right now I resolved several bugs and optimized the software. This development version is yet stronger than the previous one :

1Nanook v0.2 dev7,0/10· ·· ·· ·· ··110101=11= 21,00 
2Nanook v0.16 3,0/10001010=00=· ·· ·· ·· ·· 21,00 

I still have to optimize the evaluation function before to make more tests, it's really slow and it seems to be the highest problem to resolve.
