This site says: "All 93,659,370 known distance-20 positions as of 18 March 2014 are available below." And in total there are about 490 millions of them. This information is 3 years old. Does anybody have some new info about this? And some new estimate, how many distance-20 positions are there in total? Is there a list of these positions available (besides the one on the cube20.org site)?

    $\begingroup$ Since it was proven that all positions on the cube are solvable in 20 or fewer moves, are you asking for positions which require exactly 20 moves? $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Jul 10 '17 at 19:47

    $\begingroup$ I see someone has voted to close this as off-topic. I suggest that this is very decidedly not off-topic: it is not a puzzle, but it is a question about a puzzle, and those are absolutely fine. (In the earliest days of puzzling.se, the debate was about whether actual puzzle questions were on topic or whether the site was only meant to be used for questions about puzzles!) $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Jul 10 '17 at 21:18

    $\begingroup$ I initially flagged as off topic because of the "this seems outdated", "is there new info" which seemed very speculative. "Is there a list available", also speculating that there is new information out there. $\endgroup$ – n_plum Jul 10 '17 at 22:07

    $\begingroup$ "it seems outdated" is just a wording. It is obvious, based on the date 2014, that it is outdated. $\endgroup$ – Luka Jul 10 '17 at 22:40
