NEW RELEASE - VERSION 2.3.5, 28 APRIL 2012Human readable changelog:
Much nicer on networks, should have significantly less connections and not induce network congestion. This will help both miner and pool hardware.
Much smoother across longpolls, uses one longpoll per pool now at all times
Simpler screen output, yet more info
More ztex hardware support
New diakgcn kernel
Numerous bugfixes surrounding stale handling and display
--no-longpoll does not exist any more
Numerous min(e)r improvements Full changelog:
- Restarting cgminer leads to a socket that can't be bound for 60 seconds, so
increase the interval that API binding waits to 30 seconds to minimise the
number of times it will retry, spamming the logs.
- Give a longpoll message for any longpoll that detects a block change, primary
or backup, and also display which pool it was.
- Decrease utility display to one decimal place.
- Small cosmetic output alignment.
- Add pool number to stale share message.
- Add space to log output now that there is more screen real estate available.
- Indentation clean up.
- Merge branch 'master' of github.com:ckolivas/cgminer
- Remove thread id display from rejected shares as well.
- Merge pull request #185 from Diapolo/diakgcn
- add goffset support for diakgcn with -v 1 and update kernel version
- Set have_longpoll to true when there is at least one pool with longpoll.
- Don't display the thread ID since it adds no useful information over the
- Don't display the first 8 bytes of a share since they will always be zero at
>= 1 difficulty.
- work->longpoll is reset across test_work_current so we need to recheck what
pool it belongs to.
- Use longpolls from backup pools with failover-only enabled just to check for
block changes, but don't use them as work.
- Start longpoll only after we have tried to extract the longpoll URL.
- Check for submitold flag on resubmit of shares, and give different message for
stale shares on retry.
- Check for submitold before submitstale.
- Don't force fresh curl connections on anything but longpoll threads.
- Create one longpoll thread per pool, using backup pools for those pools that
don't have longpoll.
- Use the work created from the longpoll return only if we don't have
failover-enabled, and only flag the work as a longpoll if it is the current
- This will work around the problem of trying to restart the single longpoll
thread on pool changes that was leading to race conditions.
- It will also have less work restarts from the multiple longpolls received from
- Remove the ability to disable longpoll. It is not a useful feature and will
conflict with planned changes to longpoll code.
- Remove the invalid entries from the example configuration file.
- Add support for latest ATI SDK on windows.
- Export missing function from libztex.
- miner.php change socktimeoutsec = 10 (it only waits once)
- Bugfix: Make initial_args a const char** to satisfy exec argument type warning
(on Windows only)
- miner.php add a timeout so you don't sit and wait ... forever
- Create discrete persistent submit and get work threads per pool, thus allowing
all submitworks belonging to the same pool to reuse the same curl handle, and
all getworks to reuse their own handle.
- Use separate handles for submission to not make getwork potentially delay
share submission which is time critical.
- This will allow much more reusing of persistent connections instead of opening
new ones which can flood routers.
- This mandated a rework of the extra longpoll support (for when pools are
switched) and this is managed by restarting longpoll cleanly and waiting for a
- miner.php only show the current date header once
- miner.php also add current time like single rig page
- miner.php display rig 'when' table at top of the multi-rig summary page
- README - add some Ztex details
- api.c include zTex in the FPGA support list
- api.c ensure 'devs' shows PGA's when only PGA code is compiled
- cgminer.c sharelog code consistency and compile warning fix
- README correct API version number
- README spelling error
- api.c combine all pairs of sprintfs()
- api.c uncomment and use BLANK (and COMMA)
- Code style cleanup

- README clarification of 'notify' command
- README update for API RPC 'devdetails'
- api.c 'devdetails' list static details of devices
- Using less heap space as my TP-Link seems to not handle this much
