Little Wing 0.5.0 released

After a few weeks of work and 8 months since the last release of Little Wing, a chess engine written in Rust, the new version 0.5.0 is ready!

Most of the gain in strength (around 40 ELO) comes from a faster move generator implementing hyperbola quintessence. But the two most important features are Android support and an improved command line interface (CLI).
