I wondered, is there any news when TCEC season 8 will start? It was said to be mid-march so I would want to hear news about that. ;)

I think that there might be some cause for concern for Martin here. Particularly this is due to what Nelson Hernandez wrote on the Rybka forum on March 27th, 2015 - in which he stated:

"You may be right! I sent Martin an email asking about next season some days ago and have gotten no response. There is definitely some cause for concern as he almost always responds within hours and there was no hint in his last communication (February 13) that anything was amiss. He said at that time that he'd "get back to me" on the tournament which of course he hasn't".

Where did he go?

Nobody seems to know. Nelson and I have not heard anything from Martin since February, and I do not know of anybody else who has either.
