Nemeton,
a WinBoard conform open source chess engine by Stan Arts. It had its over the board tournament debut at the PT 47, November 2014, in Leiden, and was introduced and released soon after [1]. Written in Pascal, Nemeton started as simple "bean counter", utilizing a 16x12.5 mailbox board array (board:array[0..200] of byte) without piecelists and therefor an extremely small memory footprint. Nemeton 1 did not poll input while thinking, so that pondering or analyzing were not possible, but already in Nemeton 1.1, released in February 2015 [2].
Trees in De Hoge Veluwe [3]

Etymology

A nemeton was a sacred place of Celtic religion with trees. In Dutch, it also sounds like somebody who grabs material (Nemen Ton!) [4].
