Lomonosov tables

They are generated and prepared for publication:

Does anyone know whether these tablebases will be made publicly available? As I understood it is planned to publish a website where one can query certain positions but does anyone know whether the tablebases itself will be published? If so shouldn't there be a coordinated effort to distribute them via emule?

I'm reasonably sure that the 7-piece tables are not going to be distributed. I think in the thread you are linking to there is some discussion on using the tables for commercial purposes. There is of course also the issue of their size...

I'm less sure about the 6-piece tables. Maybe those will be distributed as an improvement of the Nalimov tables.

o Support for 7-man Lomonosov tablebases
This is great news for endgame analysts, correspondence players and others interested in endgame analysis.
Now you can look up endgame position with up to seven pieces and get a definite answer about the result.
Currently, the important KRPP-KRP endgame is available along with a few others (KRN-KRPP, KBN-KRPP).
All the 7-man endgames have already been generated by the Aquarium team and will become available in Aquarium at a later date.
