MadChess 2.0 Beta Build 026 (Passed Pawns)

I added passed pawn evaluation to MadChess 2.0 Beta. No sophisticated evaluation of free (unimpeded) or unstoppable passed pawns. Just a simple tapered evaluation of passed pawns, with a score based on the pawn’s rank.

This added 72 ELO to the playing strength of MadChess 2.0 Beta.
