Dear retrofans,

I made an update of the length records at:

Here are the changes:

B6/4: Niels H\oeg (version A.Brobecker), 2007.04
1+5: White played last. Last 4 single moves?

B9/7: Nenad Petrovi\'c (version A.Brobecker), 2007.04
1+8: White played last. Last 7 single moves?

B11/8: Nenad Petrovi\'c (version A.Brobecker), 2007.04
1+10: White played last. Last 8 single moves?

B14/10: =C14/11 without last move, Nenad Petrovi\'c (version).

B16/11: =C16/12 without last move, Nenad Petrovi\'c (version).

D10/2: Andrew Buchanan (after Bernd Schwarzkopf), unpublished, 2007.04
7+3: Last 2 single moves? Duplex.
(!!! so D13a/2 and D13b/2 are no longer records)

Henrik Juel reports that:
* A7) The five authors found the position independently.
* C12/10 is cooked: -1.e5-e6 Kb6-c7 -2.b5xc5+ c7-c5 -3.d4x?e5
(Nikita Plaksin & Alexander Kisljak, 1R2K3/1Bk5/2P1P3/8/4Q3/B7/BQ5B/6B1)
* E30) The men listed in the solution should be white and WBa4 is missing.
* F24) The solution is: Black: Kf6, Rf7, Pa3, Pb7, Pc7, Pd6, Pe5, Pe6, Ph7
n-5.e3-e4 Kf5-f6 n-4.f4-f5 a6-a5 n-3.Rg4-f4 a5-a4 n-2.Kf3-g4 a4-a3
n-1.Ng5-f3+ g7-g5 n.f5xg5+
