Longest seven piece endgame problem title

Lomonosov is the first complete 7-piece endgame database that includes 100% accurate results for every single position possible within this seven piece limitation. This new limit has just gone up from six pieces... to seven! Experts didn’t expect 7-piece endings to be cracked and catalogued until after 2015. Convekta Ltd programmers Zakharov and Makhnichev (the developers of the Aquarium interface) managed to solve this task in only six months using a new algorithm designed specifically for this purpose and run on the Lomonosov supercomputer based in the Moscow State University. In the position below, black moves first and will be checkmated in 545 moves.
