It's been a while since Dam 2.2 v.7 was released (1999!), but lately I've been working on a new 64-bit program named Moby Dam.

Features of Moby Dam:
Initial release: mobydam-2015-07-05.zip. This is the version that participated in the 18th Computer Olympiad on July 4 and 5, 2015.
Second release: mobydam-2016-07-03.zip.
This is the version that participated in the
19th Computer Olympiad on July 2 and 3, 2016.
The source files are also accessible as a Git repository at Rein Halbersma's github account.
