The demand for engines that play orthodox Chess is close to zero, (and there already are thousands on offer), unless they are within a couple of Elo from Stockfish. There is a (quite small) community of engine testers, who use any engine to play against other engines.

Did you get your evaluation tables from other sources or from your own game knowledge?
Also, I've been wanting to cache moves generated at the corresponding hashing key (and why not in a persisent table) to gain a lot of time during the search, but it has proven unreliable because of collisions (using 56 bits). I didn't find it in your code, so I assume you don't do it neither? Or did I see it wrong?
I have solutions to this problem, but they're not as elegant and as fast as I would hope.
