MINERS
Gminer v2.53 (fixed miner crashes on DAG changes for ETH+ZIL mining; fixed DAG caching on 6GB cards)
PhoenixMiner v5.6a (added native kernels for AMD RX6700 cards; added new command-line parameters -ttj and -ttmem, allowing automatic fan speed control based on GPU hotspot (junction), and memory temperatures respectively; added new command-line parameters -tmaxj and -tmaxmem, allowing to decrease the GPU usage when the GPU hotspot (junction), or GPU memory temperatures are above the specified thresholds; increased the max supported DAG epoch to 550; turned off the zero fan feature on AMD cards whenever a fixed fan speed is used)
SRBMiner-Multi v0.7.3 (small improvement on cryptonight_xhv algorithm for some GPUs; fixed --gpu-off-temperature parameter; fixed bugs with 'dual' mining ZIL + any other algorithm; removed parameters --gpu-target-temperature and --gpu-target-fan-speed - use external application instead; minor bug fixes)

MINERS
lolMiner v1.26 (slightly improved performance of Ethash on Pascal / Turing & Ampere GPUs, about +0.1 - 0.2 mh per card; further reduced internal latency in Ethash CUDA backend = less stale shares & CPU load; added experimental Grin-C32 kernel for Radeon 6700; fixed bugs: CUDA backend to crash with a segfault on Epoch change which introduced in v1.25, some (rare) potential faults in Beam stratum)
XMRig v6.11.2 (fixed regression in HTTP parser)

MINERS
Gminer v2.51 (significant CPU usage reduction (up to 5x); fixed bug with AE mining (appeared in 2.50); fixed bug with worker name (appeared in 2.50))
T-Rex v0.20.0 (Remove old and rarely used algorithms (x25x, x16r, etc); Combine all CUDA builds into a single binary; (UI) Display maximum share difficulty if --validate-shares is set; Fixed: --script-epoch-change fails to execute the script when switching to ZIL session when dual mining ETH+ZIL; Fixed: (API) Inconsistent GPU ordering in API when --pci-indexing is set; Fixed: Various stability issues)

MINERS
NanoMiner v3.3.4 (faster dataset creation for Ergo on AMD RX 4xx and 5xx series)
Bminer v16.4.6 (improved performance for Conflux mining on the Turing / Ampere architecture; improved energy efficiency for Ethereum on the Polaris architecture)
SRBMiner-MULTI v0.7.2 (Added algorithm 'heavyhash' (oBTC - Optical Bitcoin) for GPU mining, fee 2.5%; Dataset creation for 'autolykos2' algorithm on 'ellesmere' GPU's faster ~3%; DevFee for 'verthash' algorithm lowered to 1%; Parameter '--disable-workers-ramp-up' changed back to '--enable-workers-ramp-up', so default value of ramp-up is now disabled; Api doesn't report 0 h/s anymore while creating dataset for 'autolykos2' algorithm; Added parameter '--max-no-submit-responses' (for details check --help ); Minor bug fixes)
XMRig v6.11.1 (optimized cn-heavy algorithm; fixed mining job creation sequence)

MINERS
NanoMiner v3.3.3 (faster dataset creation for Ergo coin/autolykos2 algo; added zombie mode for Ergo on 2 Gb GPUs both Nvidia and AMD; fixed issues with shardpool on Zilliqa)
GMiner v2.50 (improved beamhash performance (~+2%); improved cuckatoo32 performance (~+5%); added display of GPU model in statistics table; added --worker parameter to specify worker name for ETH pools thats doesn't support wallet.worker notation; added option to display date in log (--log_date); added option to log stratum (--log_stratum); display epoch and block number on new job; updated Web UI for --api; uses --proto stratum for NiceHash by default; removed algorithms: VDS, BFC; bug fixes and stability improvements)
lolMiner 1.25 (Added a real Cuda back-end for better Nvidia GPU support on Ethash; Supports Maxwell to Ampere GPU generations; Two different mining kernels. Use --mode a (faster) --mode b (better energy efficiency) to select between the two. The selection can be done per card via a comma separated list. In mixed system select 'a' for skipping over the AMD cards. Both kernel modes need less energy and perform better then in 1.24a; Reduced internal latency for less stale shares; Reduced CPU load when mining with Nvidia cards; lolMiner works now without OpenCL driver installed; In case of mixed rigs AMD GPUs will use OpenCL while Nvidia cards use Cuda; ZIL cache feature fully supported (and stable); Temperature stop & Zombie mode is currently not supported; Added Ethash, Beam Hash III & Cortex kernels for RX 6700; The Ethash stratum interface will now try to run up to three attempts of reconnecting before switching the stratum mode; Fixed "Warning: index out of bounds" error when switching from ETHPROXY to ETHV1 stratum mode. This might solve problems with some pools on connection loss)
