I noticed in the Changelog – this entry:

Fri Apr 27 00:04:02 CEST 2007 Christian Anthon <address@hidden>

        * eval.c, gnubg.c, gtkoptions.c, set.c, show.c: removed egyptian rule

And a thread of messages on the mailing list between Oystein and yourself about the Egyptian rule support being removed:


Oystein suggested its removal, but no one gave a final reason. Of course the weights and evaluation will not make sense for these variants (It appears GnuBG may have warned the user of this).

I knew about this option because I had seen it years ago. I had  done a .14-3 build this week, and it happened to be the version I ran (by accident). It appears that since .14 – this option was actually removed from Gnubg. I ran the latest and greatest, and it is gone.

Not sure this was now by accident or if it was removed for a particular reason. Someone may have decided that the Egyptian variant was not worth keeping in GnuBG. Not sure.
