Chess Engine stronger than Rybka?

Word has it that there is another engine stronger than Rybka. And even better news is that it is open source.

The engine is called Robbolito , though this engine has appeared before under many different names, Ivanhoe, Ippolit.

The makers of Rybka claims that it is a clone of Rybka. Well, there are others that claim Rybka is a clone of another early engine called Fruit. Fruit was sold commercially (I bought an early version) until its developer decided to stop further development. Fruit itself is now freeware.

You can download the engine here
