What's new?

MINERS
Bminer v16.4.2 (fixed crash ETH mining om Nvidia cards; improved performance on mining ETH on AMD 4G cards)
NBMiner v36.0 (fixed crashing when mining kawpow algo on some GPUs in versions 35.x; removed algos: eaglesong, trb, hns, sipc, cuckaroo, cuckaroo_swap and reducing binary size)
SRBMiner-Multi v0.6.1 (added algorithm 'balloon_zentoshi' for Zentoshi coin for CPU mining, fee 0.85%; 'cryptonight_xhv' kernel small changes, pool side hashrate should be a little higher; auto setup for 'cryptonight_xhv' algorithm is a little more agressive now: if you experience some issues, use --gpu-auto-intensity 1 for lighter settings; removed parameter '--gpu-worksize')
CPUminer-Opt-rplant v5.0.9 (improved auto-stratum connect; added new balloon algo: for Zentoshi coin mining)

MINERS
TeamRedMiner v0.7.22 (rewritten ethash kernel for Navi, now should now be more stable and use less power; slightly reworked init procedure; added Claymore compatible API, see the '--cm_api_listen')
Bminer v16.4.1 (added support mining ETH on AMD 4G cards via the -ethash-allocation parameter; improve performance on mining ETH on AMD 4G cards)

MINERS
Gminer v2.37 (fixed bug with '--proto stratum' for ethash mining appeared in v2.36, this bug may lead to share rejects; fixed mining on kawpow algorithm with intensity; lowered fee on ethash to 0.65%, kawpow algorithm to 1%)
NBMiner v35.2 (added DAG verification on ethash after creation, if miner showed log in red font: 'Verification failed, invalid 2.0%', please consider lower GPU overclock)
CPUminer-Opt by rplant v5.0.7 (added dynamic US and RU2 stratums for sugarchain and microbitcoin; DoH switched to google, now miner starts faster; bug fixes)
CPUminer-Opt-JayDDee v3.15.5 (fixed stratum jobs lost if 2 jobs received in less than one second)

MINERS
T-Rex v0.19.5 (octopus up to 20% performance improvements on most 20xx and 30xx series GPUs with low PL; added solo mining support for octopus)
NBMiner v35.1 (ethash: more stable under high OC for Nvidia GPUs; octopus: improved hashrate 1-3% for 16, 20, 30 Nvidia GPUs)
XMRig v6.7.0 (up to 20-30% faster RandomX dataset initialization with AVX2 on some CPUs; added VM detection; code cleanup and refactoring; fixed some errors found by static analysis; compiled with 0% DevFee)

SYSTEM
⚙️ Added new mineros 4.14 image (os: Ubuntu 20.04, kernel: 5.6.19, amd: opencl legacy+pal 20.10, nvidia: 450.80.02). There is no need to update drivers for nvidia GPUs series 10xx-20xx. However, for the 30xx series it is necessary to execute the nv_update NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-455.45.01.run command, since drivers for this series of video cards are different. Also included in the image are all updated files including atitool.

MINERS
Gminer v2.36 (support extra nonce length up to 6 bytes for Ethash/KAWPOW algorithms, now miner will works on f2pool, miningpoolhub and other pools; added display of fan speed, core clock, memory clock, DAG size, share difficulty for Ethash/KAWPOW algorithms; display power efficienty for cuckoo cycle algorithms in milliwatts; fixed bug with stale job logic on beam and cortex - it will increase hashrate on pool side; added option to enable/disable caching of dag file, enabled by default, --cache_dag 0/1; added option to enable/disable share check on CPU for Ethash/KAWPOW algorithms, enabled by default, --share_check 0/1)
SRBMiner-Multi v0.6.0 (small performance increase on 'cryptonight_gpu', 'curvehash' algorithms; slow start (ramp up) of GPU's on miner start is now on by default; added parameter '--disable-workers-ramp-up'; removed 'tellor', 'rainforestv2' algorithms)
CPUminer-Opt by rplant v5.0.5 (fixing a critical bug with "job not found" shares. On sugarchain, the update is mandatory, on other coins it is desirable)
