"Deep" BikJump

The 32-bit version of BikJump v2.01 (after a minor bug fix) received a first rating of 2103 RUEL. Since this was tested on a Pentium IV processor (not good for bitscans), I am looking forward to get results back for the 64-bit version running on a Core 2 Duo or Quad platform.

In the meanwhile, I have started work on Deep BikJump, featuring multi-threading to perform the search in parallel (commonly referred to as SMP support). Upcoming versions will be designated with the suffix P (e.g. v2.1P) to denote this new parallel support. Because I want to continue support for all major platform (Windows, Linux, and MacOS), I am working on a small threading toolkit that provides the right abstraction for keeping the major part of the chess engine unaware of details on Windows threads and pthreads.
