SRBMiner-Multi v0.6.6 (Performance increase on 'autolykos2' algorithm on GPU's; Reduced power consumption on 'autolykos2' algorithm on GPU's; Faster dataset creation on 'autolykos2' algorithm on GPU's; Fixed miner crashing when creating dataset on 'autolykos2' algorithm; Fixed miner crashing when running --gpu-auto-tune on 'autolykos2' algorithm; Possible fix for 'duplicate share' issue on 'autolykos2' algorithm; Fixed 'k12' algorithm; Minor bug fixes)

lolMiner v1.22 (Significantly improved the performance of zombie mode on RX 400 and RX 500 GPUs in Linux, especially for low zombie tune values between 0 and 4 and rather high epochs. Performance increases by 7-11% on epoch 393 (--4g-alloc-size 4080 on a RX 580. 4G) and 15-20% on epoch 400. Re-tuning using the auto-tune is recommended. Also this version might draw a bit more power, but with approximately same total efficiency.)
NanoMiner v3.2.0 (added autolykos algorithm support for Ergo coin, it's available for 3GB on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs, devfee is 5%)
SRBMiner-Multi v0.6.5 (huge performance increase on 'autolykos2' algorithm on GPU's, up to ~600%; huge performance increase on 'autolykos2' algorithm on CPU's with AVX2, up to ~500%; added abort mechanism for 'autolykos2' dataset creation on CPU)

TeamRedMiner v0.8.1 (Big Navi support added. This is just a basic support release for all supported Navi algos (ethash, kawpow, mtp, nimiq); Kernels are close to or identical with Navi10 A-mode (ethash) and default modes for Navi10 (kawpow, mtp, nimiq); Please read the updated ETHASH_TUNING_GUIDE.txt for a short tuning section at the very end of the file; Big Navi should run in A-mode for ethash (default choice), not B-mode. Read tuning guide for more info; Eth+zil mining: new pool strategy 'min_epoch' added for switching between plain eth and eth+zil pools; Ethash: Navi display gpus now using A-mode by default to prevent allocation issues, especially on Windows; Statistics: now proper handling of negative temperatures under Linux)
Lolminer v1.21 (slightly improved the performance of Linux zombie mode on Polaris GPUs on medium tune stages (needs re-tuning from previous settings); increased range of accepted zombie tune parameter for GPUs with high interconnect bandwidth; slightly decreased GPU load of Polaris GPUs during DAG build; Added more control about handling cards that are detected to be non-working any more. Use parameter --watchdog off/exit/script to turn off any action, exit the miner with a specific exit code or to run an external script. See detail description on the 1.21 release page; Nvidia cards that experienced a OpenCL driver error (e.g. "CL_OUT_OF_RESOURCES" will now also trigger the watchdog with the configured effect; The '--ethstratum' parameter can now take two options separated by a ',' to give different options in case the dual or split mining mode is used; The dns resolving and the connection attempt can now timeout (after 10 seconds each) and will re-try to connect afterwards. This fixes an issue when a pool went offline and the following connection attempt takes indefinitely much time. Each timeout event contributes to the counter that will trigger switching to fail-over pools; Fixed a issue that might cause the rig to drop to 0 hash rate on epoch changes - including changes with activated ZIL caching; Fixed the pool hash rate reporting not working correctly in dual & split stratum modes; Fixed the dual stratum connection not picking up the correct worker name when '--worker' is used; Fixed miner not loading Ethash/Etchash kernels on Tahiti and Hawaii GPUs when using older then end 2017 drivers)
SRBMiner-Multi v0.6.4 (added algorithm 'autolykos2' Ergo coin for CPU/GPU mining, fee 1.25%; performance increase on 'phi5' algorithm on CPU's with AVX2; removed devfee for 'cryptonight_heavyx' algorithm; bug fixes)
Xmrig v6.8.1 (Added documentation for config.json CPU options; Fixed AMD GPUs health data readings on Linux; Fixed compilation error when RandomX and Argon2 are disabled; Added support for flexible huge page sizes on Linux; Fixed illegal instruction crash on ARM)

GMiner v2.44 (improved compatibility with Ethash pools; improved handling of device freezing; improved auto-tuning; added two kernels for Ethash, miner support 5 kernels for Nvidia GPUs, miner automatically select optimal kernel, also you can select specific kernel by --oc, see miner manual for details)

MINERS
T-Rex v0.19.9 (added option 'dag-build-mode' to fine tune DAG build mode, mostly to help with various stability issues, see miner manual for details; fixed stability regression for Pascal GPUs on ethash, kawpow, octopus; fixed summary report for displaying mining pool difficulty that isn't always updated; cosmetic changes: improve error descriptions, display block number when mining solo at some pools)
lolMiner v1.20 (added new split & dual mining options - this allows more freedom or better latency and stability on ETH+ZIL dual mining as well as split mining, i.e. let some cards mine ETH while other (3 and 4G) cards mine ETC; significantly improved Ethash mining speed on R9 390 and Etchash speed on R9 290; fixed a bug with 4G cards crash on mining ETC when trying to falsely enter zombie-tune; fixed "Address already in use" API bug)
PhoenixMiner v5.5c (added new '-mcdag' parameter to reset the memory overclock on Nvidia cards during DAG generation, default the value is 0, which means turned off; option -tt is now strictly for controlling the fan behavior: E.g. -tt 60 sets auto-fan speed with target temperature 60C; -tt -70 sets fixed fan speed 70%; and -tt 0 turns off the fan control; new '-hwm' parameter that allows controlling the frequency of the hardware monitoring, which was also done by -tt in the previous versions of PhoenixMiner; other small improvements and fixes)
XMRig v6.8.0 (added DMI/SMBIOS reader; improved MSR subsystem code quality)
