Little Wing 0.4.0 is out!

After a month of intense work, the new version 0.4.0 of Little Wing, a bitboard chess engine written in Rust, is out!

It should play better chess now, going up in strength from 1650 ELO to a bit over 2000 ELO:

There’s still a lot of work to do on the evaluation side but I’m happy with the search side for now.
