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)

What's new?

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)

What's new?

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)

What's new?

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)

⚙️ Updated scripts for overclocking NAVI cards; Improved autofan script

GMiner v2.49 (improved DAG generation, now miner generates valid DAG in extremal OC modes; safe_dag option allows you to choose a way to DAG generation. There are two modes: Fast mode(1, default for GTX GPUs): miner generates DAG as quickly as possible, DAG errors are possible at maximum overclocking and Safe mode(2, default for RTX GPUs): miner generates DAG with error control, useful for RTX cards at maximum overclocking; improved memory tweaks(fixed problem with possibly broken DAG on epoch change))
TeamRedMiner v0.8.1.1 (added support RX 6700 XT)
NBMiner v37.1 (fixed Ergo high reject ratio on 10 series Nvidia GPUs; fixed Ergo pool compatibility)
SRBMiner-Multi v0.7.1 (added algorithm 'heavyhash' for CPU mining oBTC coin, fee 0.85%; added algorithm 'yespowermgpc' for CPU mining MGPC/MagPieCoin, fee 0.85%; small improvements on 'autolykos2' algorithm; fixed crash on 'panthera' algorithm on non-Ryzen CPUs; minor bug fixes)
CPUminer-Opt-rplant v5.0.19 (added 'heavyhash' algo; fixed memory leak on gr algo; bug fixes)
