Firebird, Ivanhoe vs. Rybka

Of course, since the free open source chess engine Ippolit is available, clones have appeared, starting with RobboLito & Igorrit, now Ivanhoe & Firebird, and some may be even stronger...

It seems that we still do not have any clue to know if Ippolit is itself a clone of Rybka or not, anyway it would interesting to compare these new engines.

Does anyone have any informations, tournament results or something for these new engines?

All I know is that Firebird is dang strong. When I did a match of FireBird vs. Rybka 3 the results were 36/50 for FireBird.

There are several articles that are worth to read on Firebird & the other chess engines from the Ippolit series, also on the history of chess engines from Fritz, Shredder, Hiarcs & Junior to Stockfish and programmers/clones issues, particularly at Chessvibes & ChessNinja :
