Barcelogic:

All previous implementations were merged into our system Barcelogic for SMT. It won all four categories of the
2005 SMT-Competition in which it participated. In the 2006 SMT-Competition it came second in all categories in which it participated. You can visit the Barcelogic for SMT website.
