Conqueror,
a UCI compatible chess program by Aditya Pande. It is written in C++, released as open source software under GPLv3 license. It's development started in June 2014 and is currently being improved for better performance and a more intricate evaluation scheme. Elostat gives the last version engine an ELO rating of 2100 rated over 50 games, the current version is expected to be a little stronger than the last owing to some performance optimizations. The engine supports UCI GUIs like Arena, ChessGUI, etc. and the support has been extended to latest Winboard GUI but requires some configuration.
