MINERS
lolMiner v1.15 (Added Ethash Zombie mode for 4G Nvidia GPUs. Use '--4g-alloc-size' to calibrate the number of MBytes the GPUs are allowed to use; Fixed a segmentation fault on Nvidia & mixed rigs when starting Ethash mining; Fixed bug: Miner causing invalid shares on 4G cards on some systems (mostly Linux); Fixed bug: Miner hangs up when changing epoch when using the ZIL cache feature; Fixed bug: Miner sometimes produces invalid shares when a new job with different epoch arrives while the miner is currently creating the DAG file for an earlier job; Improved Ethash efficiency on Nvidia GPUs; ZIL cache now can be used by cards with less then 8G when enough memory is available (e.g. 6G cards or when mining e.g. ETP + ZIL); General stability improvements)
Nbminer v33.4 (optimize: octopus improve hashrate: +35% on 16 20 30 series Nvidia GPUs, +20% on all other GPUs; new algo: etchash for upcoming ETC upgrade; feature: add effective pool hashrate on console & api, 10min 4h 24h)
XMRig v6.5.2 (separate MSR mod for Zen/Zen2 and Zen3; compiled with 0% DevFee)

⚙️ Moved sync server to an amazon storage for blazing fast and stable download speed

MINERS
T-Rex v0.18.8 (Add etchash algorithm for upcoming ETC fork; Bug fixes: (ethash) Compatibility with Mining Rig Rentals pool)
lolMiner v1.13 (Ethash: Reduced power draw significantly on non-zombie mode for Rx Fury & Rx 470 - 590, slight reduction for Vega & Navi; Ethash: Slightly improved performance on Vega, Navi and Nvidia GPUs. Significantly improved performance on R9 390; Added Zombie mode for RX 5300XT & RX 5500 4G cards; Added ETCHash support for Radeon HD 79x0 / R9 280 (X) & RX 5300 3G. On Linux will be good for ETCHash till epoch ~250 (about July 2022); Added caching of last 5 used light caches. This will reduce the switching time for Nicehash & ZIL dual mining significantly; Added support for extranonce subscription on EthereumStratum/1.0.0 (Nicehash) format - this will stop the miner from frequently reconnecting to Nicehash; Added detection of pool not accepting worker name in <wallet.workerName> format when using ETHPROXY stratum. Miner will reconnect with worker name copied into --worker in this case; Added experimental workaround for mining epoch 385+ with RX 470 - 590 and Linux kernel 5.6.x: Note this fix will deactivate the ZIL cache ability and force the miner to create DAG a bit slower. Deactivate it with --disableLinux56fix; Fixed bug: "conversion of data to type "b" failed" when using ETHPROXY stratum mode on some pools; Fixed potential issue causing GPUs to freeze when a GPU needs to reboot, e.g. epoch change or connection loss)
Nbminer v33.4 (optimize: octopus improve hashrate: +35% on 16 20 30 series Nvidia GPUs, +20% on all other GPUs; new algo: etchash for upcoming ETC upgrade; feature: add effective pool hashrate on console & api, 10min 4h 24h)

⚙️ The sync server has been updated. Now all updates including miners downloading much faster

MINERS
NanoMiner v1.13.0 (added support for Conflux Network's Octopus algorithm on Nvidia GPU with devfee 2%)
T-Rex v0.18.7 (reduced GPU memory consumption on ethash, progpow and kawpow; added cache DAG for epoch 0 when mining ETH+ZIL use '--extra-dag-epoch 0' command-line parameter; bug fixes: kernels 4 and 5 generate incorrect shares if DAG size > 4GB; 'out of memory' error in "zombie" mode; if the pool requires the worker name to be sent, it has to be set with '-w' parameter. If '-w' is not set, the miner will set it to <algorithm>_worker0 by default)
XMRig v6.5.1 (implemented new MSR mod for Ryzen, up to +3.5% on Zen2 and +1-2% on Zen3; compiled without DevFee)

MINERS
Bminer v16.3.4 (added support for mining Conflux; reduced the rejection rates when mining Ethereum; removed support of the Tensority algorithm; fix compatibilties issues of various Conflux pools)
TT-Miner v6.0.0 (added support for VeriBlock, Zelantus, Veil; added fees again - Solo mining & EPIC: 2% and 1% for other)
XMRig v6.5.0 (fixed MSR kernel module warning with new Linux kernels; Compiled without DevFee)

MINERS
SRBMiner-MULTI v0.5.5 (Added algorithm 'argon2id_ninja' fee 0.85%; DevFee for 'ethash' algorithm lowered to 0.65%; DevFee for 'ubqhash' algorithm lowered to 0.65%; DevFee for 'minotaur' algorithm lowered to 0.85%; DevFee for 'randomxl' algorithm removed; Small performance increase on cryptonight_xhv algorithm; Parameter '--gpu-intensity' now accepts raw-intensity values too, so you can mix them if you want (ex. 12+2048 = intensity 12, raw-intensity 2048); Removed parameter '--gpu-raw-intensity'; Bug fixes)
NBMiner v33.3 (optimize: octopus improve hashrate: Nvidia, +3% on 10 series, +20% on 16, 20, 30 series; new algo: octopus for AMD support; fix: crash upon start on certain Nvidia rigs)
