MINERS
GMiner v2.40 (significant performance improvements for KAWPOW, especially on rigs with large number of GPUs; improved compatibility with Ravencoin pools (miningpoolhub.com); added option to control DAG buffering mode (single or dual, --dag_mode); added option to support "Zombie Mode" for Ethash, Etchash and KAWPOW algortihms (--dag_limit); improved detection of freezing AMD GPUs under linux; fixed display of core and memory clocks under linux; display GPU PCI index on miner startup; removed unpopular algorithms: sero, vprogpow, progpowz, cuckarood29, cuckarood29v)
lolMiner v1.18 (Improved linux zombie mode power draw & speed Polaris GPUs (R9 380, RX Fury, RX 4x0 and RX 5x0). Depending on configuration, the zombie mode now uses 0.5 to 1W less energy and is 0.2 to 0.4 mh/s faster; Added --zombie-tune parameter for Polaris GPUs. This will increase the performance of zombie mode (further up on the general improvement) by an other 5-15%, depending on parameter and epoch (later epochs profit more). Default value is 0 (off), for most cards the value of 2 is optimal. If you see cards getting slower then before, set to 0 or 1. Note: you either can give one value for the whole rig or provide a comma separated list for each card individually. Cards not running zombie mode ignore the parameter; The parameter --4g-alloc-size can now also be set for each card individually; Slight rework of Beam Hash III back end. Improves poolside hash rate by approx 0.2 to 0.3% - displayed hashrate and power consume kept equal; Added a 4G_Ethash_Linux_Readme.txt file to the Linux release, giving guidance how to configure for ideal zombie mode performance; Bug fixes: segmentation fault when the dns resolve of a pool fails #109; miner does not restart after connection loss. #108; Applied potential fix for "address or port already in use" bug)
BMiner v16.4.4 (Fix bugs that lead to high rejection rates in the AMD Ethereum solvers; Fix compatiblity issues with ETH pools that use the ethproxy protocols e.g. sparkpools)

MINERS
Gminer v2.39 (added kernel auto-tuning for KAWPOW algorithm, this feature improves hashrate up to 4% on some GPUs; fixed AMD GPUs detection: now miner detects Vega and Navi)
SRBMiner-Multi v0.6.2 (added algorithm 'circcash' for CPU mining Circcash coin, fee 0.85%; added algorithm 'phi5' for CPU mining Combode coin, fee 0.85%)
WildRig v0.28.3 (added 'phi5' algo for mining Combode coin)
CPUminer-Opt-rplant v5.0.10 (added 'phi5' algo for mining Combode coin)

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)

What's new?

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)

2020-12-24 14:19:40

What's new?

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)
