⚙️ Added new mineros 5.1 images with dual boot mode: Legacy+UEFI. Stable image (os: Ubuntu 20.04.2, kernel: 5.11.15, amd: opencl legacy+pal 20.40, nvidia: 460.73.01). This image is compatible with AMD Big Navi GPUs. Beta image (os: Ubuntu 20.04.2, kernel: 5.11.15, amd: opencl legacy+rocr 21.10, nvidia: 460.73.01). This image contains the latest AMD drivers which are not compatible with some miners right now. Use it at your own risk.
⚙️ Added core clock lock feature for Nvidia Turing and Ampere GPUs to achieve better stability and power consumption results. Setting the value in the Core clock field above 500 means setting the absolute value. Setting a negative value or less than 500 is the same as setting a frequency offset. For example, blocking the core frequency at 1100 MHz on a rig with 8 RTX 3070 video cards reduced power consumption by 145 watts/hour and slightly increased the hash rate. Approximate values ​​for different GPU series: 1660s, 2060s, 2070, 2070s: 1010-1050; 2080, 2080s: 1110-1160; 3060Ti: 1300-1350; 3070: 1000-1150; 3080: 1010-1050; 3090: 980-1030.
⚙️ Added display of accepted, rejected and invalid shares in T-rex miner.

lolMiner v1.27 (Added verify routine for Ethash dag epochs 400 to 450. In case the miner will detect defect entries, the CPU will try to fix this. Mining will be paused until the repair is completed. Use --disable-dag-verify to disable the verify & repair mechanism routine; Re-worked default Ethash kernels for Pascal GPUs - improved their performance; Added Ethash kernels for Fermi and Kepler GPUs. Most of them will only work for small epoch Eth forks; Nvidia cards on Ethash now pause when the stratum reports no current work (e.g. when connection was lost); Added a split DAG mode for Nvidia GPUs in case that the memory allocation fails on the primary kernels. This will be a bit slower, but improve compatibility, especially for 5G GPUs. Use --mode s to force it; Added parameter --cclk to fix the core clock of Nvidia Turing and newer GPUs without using external tools. Use a comma separated list to give different values to cards, use * to skip over cards. Needs super user or administrator privileges to work; Added new dualmode zilEx. This works like --dualmode zil but with the ability to use --dualdevices to exclude GPUs from switching to ZIL. They will continue on the secondary connection and do not switch; Added new dualmode eth. This will allow to point different GPUs to different pools; Added parameter --statsformat to use custom format for the bigger statistic box. The expected values are either compact or default or extended or a comma separated list of values. Use --help-format to get a list with accepted entries; Added reading of current core and memory clocks for AMD and Nvidia GPUs; Fixes: Fixed a stratum error, that caused the "all shares stale" bug when too many reconnect attempts in a row did fail; Fixed a crash on Nvidia GPUs when mixing ethproxy and Nicehash stratum modes in dualmodes; Fixed zombie tune values not applied when using json format for configuring; Fixed displayed names of RX 6000 generation of cards and RTX 3060 in 460.x drivers; Depracated: Cuckaroo-29 with 48 cycle length - originally planned for Italocoin - got removed because of the lack of use)

MINERS
PhoenixMiner v5.6b (Added support for showing GPU hotspot (junction), and video memory temperatures forNvidia GPUs. Note that the video memory temperature is only shown by some GPUs(3080, 3090, possibly 2080Ti); The options -ttj, -ttmem, -tmaxj, and -tmaxmem now also work with Nvidia GPUs; Added support for AMD Linux drivers 21.10-1247438-ubuntu-20.04 (use these only with Polaris or older GPUs, or with the latest RX6x00 GPUs, these drivers won't work with Vega, Radeon VII, or Navi GPUs))
Nanominer v3.3.5 (Fixed "Unknown GPU name" issue with new AMD drivers)
TeamRedMiner v0.8.2.1 (added --verthash_max_uploads=N to control the upload of the verthash table to GPUs at startup.. Some chipsets get issues running > 4 GPUs concurrently. Typical error is that multiple GPUs die immediately at startup when running the full rig, but work fine if you only run 3-4 GPUs; fixed support for 2GB GPUs on verthash)

MINERS
NBMiner v37.2 (minor ethash hashrate improvements on AMD RDNAs GPUs)
T-Rex v0.20.3 (added share validation support via validate-shares parameter for octopus algo; enabled miner termination upon exceeding predefined maximum of total power consumption, please see exit-on-high-power in miner readme file; bug fixes: performance degradation on Pascal and Turing GPUs, miner fails to start if password isn't specified, minor cosmetic fixes)
TeamRedMiner v0.8.2 (added support for verthash algo; added support Tonga GPUs for ethash and kawpow; added sensor power, junction temp and mem temp to API; now displaying sensor power in the 30s stats output; better handling of driver issues related to gpu clocks/temps stats; other minor changes)
XMRig v6.12.1 (fixed Zen3 assembly code for cn/upx2 algo)

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)

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)
