Glaurung 2 is a completely rewritten version of Glaurung. Apart from the parallel search code, almost no code is shared with Glaurung 1.2.1, the previous stable version. The new program is clearly stronger than the old, but has a less attractive style of play, because there are still a few major holes in its evaluation function (most notably space and development).
This version of Glaurung supports up to 8 CPUs, but has not been tested thoroughly with more than 2. The program tries to detect the number of CPUs on your computer and set the number of search threads accordingly, but please be aware that the detection is not always correct. It is therefore recommended to inspect the value of the “Threads” UCI parameter, and to make sure it equals the number of CPU cores on your computer.
