    Hash Auger 1.9.9.0 and 1.9.9.1 Maintenance Release
    [list]
    [li][b]1.9.9.1 Fixes a display issue that users in some locales were experiencing while mining with Z-Enemy.[/b][/li]
    [li]Fixed an issue where Excavator would not receive work from MiningPoolHub.[/li]
    [li]Fixed an issue where a failed miner install would prevent the automatic start of mining on startup.[/li]
    [li]Fixed an issue where algorithm-specific overclock settings would not copy from the GPU Manager to devices if the preferred miners were different between the template and the device. This issue only occurred when using a blank template rather than one based on a device.[/li]
    [li]Improved file I/O performance on systems with many GPUs.[/li]
    [li]Improved performance and responsiveness when downloading miners.[/li]
    [li]Enhanced the auto-reboot feature to include situations where a GPU is still recognized by the device driver but still fails to mine despite repeated attempts.[/li]
    [/list]


    Hash Auger 1.9.8 Maintenance Release
    [list]
    [li]Added Support for CryptoDredge 0.4.0 (allium, lyra2v2, neoscrypt, phi, phi2).[/li]
    [li]Added support for RavenCoinMiner (x16r).[/li]
    [li]Added an Advanced configuration option to automatically reboot the system if the software recognizes that a GPU is no longer recognized by the device driver. When this setting is off, Hash Auger will stop using the affected GPU while still mining with all other GPUs.[/li]
    [li]Hash Auger will now suspend overclock settings for a particular algorithm/GPU if too many miner errors occur with the algorithm's current overclock settings.[/li]
    [li]Added support for mixed price estimates on most pools. In addition to using current estimates or actual prices, prices can now be calculated as a combination of both (80% estimate and 20% actual for example). Users can adjust the ratio for each pool and define custom ratios for specific algorithms or coins on each pool.[/li]
    [li]Further improvements to the handling of repeated miner errors for the same GPU.[/li]
    [li]Upgraded Tpruvot to 2.2.6 (adds support for allium and phi2)[/li]
    [li]Upgraded DelosMiner to 1.3.0a (improved DevFee logging)[/li]
    [li]Based on user feedback, changed the icons on the Enable/Disable Miner button to reflect the current status of the miner.  The tooltip for this button has also been revised to indicate the miner's current status. [/li]
    [/list]

    Hash Auger 1.9.7 Maintenance Release
    [list]
    [li]Added support for Palginmod miner 1.1 (Lyra2v2, Skein and x17).[/li]
    [li]Added support for Excavator 1.4.4a (Equihash, Lyra2v2 and Neoscrypt). [/li]
    [li]Upgraded Delos miner to 1.3 - adds support for Skein and Lyra2v2 plus performance improvements for existing algorithms. Merged both Delos miners into a single version. However, due to reports of this miner's dev fee being larger than advertised, its miner fee has been adjusted and this miner is disabled by default for new installations.  Existing users can disable this miner via the UI if they prefer to not use it until the Delos developer has responded to these concerns.[/li]
    [li]Upgraded Z-Enemy to 1.1.1 v4 (fixes C11 issue).[/li]
    [li]Added support for Delos and Delos-x16r miners (supports bitcore, hmq1725, hsr, phi, skunk, x16r, x16s and x17).[/li]
    [li]Upgraded Z-Enemy to 1.11 (adds support for aeriumx, c11, polytimos, skunk, timetravel plus performances improvements for x16 and other algorithms). [/li]
    [li]Added compatibility with the new mbtc_mh_factor added to the Yiimp API. While a transparent feature for most users, this will help reduce pricing errors due to pools changing their pricing factors.[/li]
    [li]Algorithms that are disabled on all devices are now unchecked in the Pool Algorithm lists. This is only a visual change as these algorithms would not have run anyway.[/li]
    [li]Fixed issue with mouse scroll wheel no longer working with the Benchmark grid on device panels.[/li]
    [li]Improvements to the benchmarking process when communication with a pool is temporarily interrupted.
    [/li]
    [li]Improvements to the miner download and installation process when an archive is unavailable.[/li]
    [li]Adjustments to the developer contribution to include a grace period when the software is started near the end of the day. [/li]
    [/list]

    Hash Auger 1.9.6 Maintenance Release
    [list]
    [li]Added Italyiimp to the pools that auto-exchange. [/li]
    [li]Improvements to the Device Panels to show more benchmarks on the screen at one time. Display panels are now collapsible, providing more vertical space for an expanded device's benchmark list. Also, the device panels have been widened so that the full width of the benchmark grid is displayed without horizontal scrolling.[/li]
    [li]UI improvements to better accomodate users with many GPUs.  The Miner Stat area now supports multiple columns of panels if the screen space is available. Also, main areas of the Mine tab are now resizable so that the width of the Miner Stat area can be increased relative to the rest of the window. Similarly, the Profitability grid and Output panel can also be resized to make either taller or shorter.[/li]
    [li]Added the ability to enable and disable specific miners for individual devices and in the GPU Manager.  Select the miner to be enabled/disabled and then press the button with the light bulb icon to turn the selected miner on or off.  The button's icon shows whether the selected miner will be turned off or on after the button is clicked. For example, a lit bulb indicates that the miner is currently disabled and pressing the button will enable it.[/li]
    [li]Added support for Delos and Delos-x16r miners (supports bitcore, hmq1725, hsr, phi, skunk, x16r, x16s and x17).[/li]
    [li]Upgraded Z-Enemy to 1.11 (adds support for aeriumx, c11, polytimos, skunk, timetravel plus performances improvements for x16 and other algorithms). [/li]
    [li]Improvements to benchmarking Justaminer.[/li]
    [li]Benchmarking XMRig-Nvidia and XMRig-CPU will now use either MiningPoolHub or NiceHash instead of requiring that MiningPoolHub be enabled.[/li]
    [li]Benchmarking DSTM will now use either Nicehash, MiningPoolHub or Zpool depending on which pool is enabled.[/li]
    [li]Added support for CryptoNight-Heavy on NiceHash.[/li]
    [li]Removed the original Cryptonight algorithm on Nicehash due to extremely low GPU earnings. Cryptonightv7 is now Cryptonight on NiceHash for consistency other pools.[/li]
    [li]Fixed an issue where GPU identifiers were not included in the worker names when mining on NiceHash. [/li]
    [li]Miscellaneous UI performance improvements.[/li]
    [/list]

    Hash Auger 1.9.5 Maintenance Release
    [list]
    [li]Added support for the OMGEthEnlargementPill for ethash mining and benchmarking. This setting can be enabled for 1080/1080ti and Titan XP devices only. When used, the software will automatically launch the utility program when a supported GPU is mining Ethash and then close the program when the GPU moves to a different algorithm.  With Hash Auger's built-in support for per-algorithm overclocking profiles, users can easily tune their card's memory clocks to take full advantage of this new feature. Current users wanting to use this feature should clear their benchmark for ethash on the appropriate GPUs and rebenchmark so the algorithm switcher uses the revised hash rates. [/li]
    [li]Improvements to the Build Larger Shares pool option to avoid staying on work whose estimated earnings have dropped significantly regardless of the current share's estimated size.[/li]
    [li]Usability enhancements to the GPU Manager. First, the Include Hash Rates option is disabled when a blank template is used to prevent accidentally copying over device benchmarks. Second, a Override Locked Miners option can be used to replace locked preferred miners; otherwise, the GPU Manager will now skip changing a miner when it is locked.[/li]
    [li]Added a new Backup command to archive all configuration and device template files into a single .zip file.[/li]
    [li]Upgraded EthMiner to version .14.[/li]
    [li]Miscellaneous bug fixes and performance improvements.[/li]
    [/list]

    Hash Auger 1.9.4 Maintenance Release
    [list]
    [li]Added Powermining and Spool to the pools that do not auto-exchange.[/li]
    [li]Lowered the minimum Pool Refresh Rate to 5 minutes per user request. The default value remains 10 minutes.[/li]
    [li]Added the ability to define price adjustment percents for individual algorithms on auto-exchange pools and specific coins on MiningPoolHub and pools that do not auto-exchange. [/li]
    [li]Added the ability to set manual difficulty levels per algorithm for each device for Yiimp-based pools.[/li]
    [li]Users can now enable/disable specific coins instead of algorithms on MiningPoolHub.[/li]
    [li]Custom difficulty percentages can now be set for algorithms that use CCMiner variants so that the pool's auto difficulty levels can be adjusted. It is recommended that small increments (98%, 102%, etc) be used when tuning this setting. This setting cannot be used when using the manual difficulty setting.[/li]
    [li]Updated price unit of x13 on Zpool.[/li]
    [li]Enabled x17 for Z-enemy.[/li]
    [li]Added a link to each pool's website in the pool settings.[/li]
    [li]Miscellaneous bug fixes and performance improvements.[/li]
    [/list]

    Hash Auger 1.9.3 Maintenance Release
    This release focuses on behind-the-scenes code changes to fix some intermittent issues that a few users were having as well as improve application performance.  Also, the Build Bigger Shares option is now hidden on pools that do not support this new feature. More new features are coming soon in 1.9.4.

    Hash Auger 1.9.2 Maintenance Release
    [list]
    [li]Added a new Build Larger Shares option for most auto-exchange pools. When this setting is enabled for a pool, the software will delay switching work regardless of any change in price estimates if your estimate share of the next reward is extremely small. This can help improve your earnings for popular algorithms on bigger pools by building a larger stake in profitable coins. However, it also means that the software will keep mining a coin despite any fluctuations in its current earnings estimates.[/li]
    [li]Added the ability to lock preferred miners for specific algorithms so they won't be changed after benchmarking or when using the Change Preferred Miners feature.  Locked preferred miners are useful when you have set custom intensity values for some miners but want other miners to change based on their actual performance.[/li]
    [li]Improvements to the handling of crashed miners.[/li]
    [li]Upgraded Z-Enemy miner to version 1.10 Service Release.[/li]
    [/list]


    Hash Auger 1.9.1 Maintenance Release
    [list]
    [li]Fixed an issue where algorithms could not be disabled for certain pools.[/li]
    [li]Improved performance when copying device settings to many GPUs at once.[/li]
    [li]Improved startup time and UI responsiveness while fetching data.[/li]
    [li]Improvements to how both the Minimum Earnings Amount and Price Spike Limits are used to better handle situations when the estimate for a coin significantly changes after the software has started mining it. [/li]
    [li]Added The Queen Bee Hive to the pools that do not auto-exchange.[/li]
    [/list]

    Hash Auger 1.9.0
    [list]
    [li]Added the ability to filter the Profitability grid by Device, Pool and/or Algorithm. [/li]
    [li]Improved compatibility with Yiimp pools that have dedicated coin ports and do not auto-exchange. Since these dedicated ports are an add-on to the Yiimp platform and not currently supported by its API, users have to manually enter the port numbers for the coins they wish to mine on these pools. Since these pools do not auto-exchange, port numbers are only required for each coin wallet that is assigned to each of these pools.
    Once a port number has been assigned to a coin, the coin will be used like any other non-auto-exchange coin in the software (auto algorithm switching, manual selection, etc). [/li]

    [li]Added the following pools that do not auto-exchange and have dedicated coin ports: HashFaster, Icemining.ca, Protopool, Saltpool[/li]
    [li]Updated the following pools that now use dedicated coin ports: Alttank.ca, AntMine, BSOD, MiningPanda.site, PickAxe.pro,Quantum Mining Pool, Unimining.net[/li]
    [li]Added Hash4Life to the pools that do not auto-exchange and do not use dedicated coin ports.[/li]
    [li]Added MineMoney.co to auto-exchange pools.[/li]
    [li]Updated BSOD pool with new server locations.[/li]
    [li]Improved Handling of Stratum Connection Interrupted errors with the Alexis and CCMiner-Phi miners.[/li]
    [li]Improved auto-start mining on application startup when pool data is slow to download.[/li]
    [li]Worker ID's sent to the pools now include the device number (or custom description if one has been saved for a device) for each mining process.[/li]
    [li]Upgraded Nevermore miner to 2.3[/li]
    [li]Upgraded Z-Enemy to 1.10[/li]
    [/list]

    Hash Auger 1.8.9
    [list]
    [li]Added two new price settings for Yiimp-based pools:  Include Ports With No Recent Results and Include Ports With No Active Miners.  Both of the options are off by default and help improve earnings on pools with light or infrequent mining on some ports. These settings will have less of an effect when mining on bigger pools that are less likely to have ports with these conditions. Both of these new settings are pool-specific so that they can be enabled on specific pools if preferred. [/li]
    [li]Modified the configuration files to improve globalization compatibility with certain locales.[/li]
    [li]Modified the User Interface to address an incompatibility with remote viewing software such as Team Viewer (if this fix doesn't completely address the issue on some systems, there is also a registry change that has been found to also solve the issue of the blank window).  This change can also improve mining performance on the primary GPU even when the system is physically connected to a monitor.[/li]
    [li]Added support for JustaMiner's HSR Neoscrypt miner.[/li]
    [li]Upgraded the following miners: [/li]
    [li]Z-Enemy -> 1.09b (Performance improvements and adds support for Tribus algorithm)[/li]
    [li]XMRig-CPU -> 2.6.2[/li]
    [li]Jaydee CPU Miner -> 8.8.8.1[/li]
    [/list]

    Hash Auger 1.8.8 is another maintenance release that contains the following improvements:

    Added support for the new MC parameter on the BlockMasters pool. Now users can mine and auto-switch specific coins in addition to the pool's regular coin-switching ports while still auto-exchanging to BTC or LTC.
    Improved config file I/O for better performance and handling of file lock issues.
    Enhanced miner process management to better monitor for and shutdown miner processes that fail to exit normally.

    Hash Auger 1.8.7 maintenance release includes the following changes:

    [list]
    [li]Improved handling of stratum connection failures by increasing tolerance for short breaks in connectivity. Clarified error messages to provide more details about the type of error and how the software will respond.[/li]
    [li]Added a Recalc Miners button to the Benchmarks tab on each Device panel and the GPU Manager so that users can have the software manually update preferred miners based on changes to benchmarks and each device's actual performance.[/li]
    [li]Updated z-enemy and spmod-raven miners to their latest versions.[/li]
    [/list]

    Hash Auger 1.8.6 has been released. The improvements in this update are:
    [list]
    [li]Added ccminer-phi and the new Spmod Raven miner (x16s disabled until a new binary is released due to CPU validation errors in the current version).[/li]
    [li]Re-enabled Nanashi miner with some tweaks to the default intensity levels to make it more stable on 1080ti GPUs. [/li]
    [li]Added AntMinePool and RushHourMining to the pools that do not auto-exchange.[/li]
    [li]When the Update Benchmarks With Actual Rates setting is enabled, the percentage difference between each miner's actual hash rate and its benchmarked rate is now displayed for each algorithm making it easier for users to compare each miner's real-world performance. Users can reset this value to see the effects of overclocking or intensity tuning without having to re-benchmark. [/li]
    [li]Hash Auger can now automatically change an algorithm's preferred miner based on actual mining performance. This is useful when a miner benchmarks at a higher rate than it actually performs.  However, this setting is disabled by default so that it doesn't interfere with users who define custom algorithm intensity values that are usually miner specific.  The Change Preferred Miner Automatically application setting can only be used when the Update Benchmarks With Actual Rates feature is also enabled.
    [/li]
    [li]The Hash Auger logs are no longer saved to disk automatically. The new Write Hash Auger Log to Disk application setting can be used to regularly save the log as a text file.[/li]
    [li]Missing API Key/ID warnings for MiningPoolHub and NiceHash are now only shown once during application startup.[/li]
    [li]Improvements to the miner installation process to better address situations where one or more miners could not be installed or are automatically deleted by Windows Defender or other anti-virus software.[/li]
    [li]Expanded error checking in the GPU Manager.[/li]
    [li]Added algorithm specific variants of Verge and Shield to the list of wallet coins.[/li]
    [/list]


    Hash Auger 1.8.5 is a small maintenance release primarily focused on some UI issues involving the new GPU Manager interface:
    [list]
    [li]Fixed a UI refresh issue where algorithms in the list for each auto-exchange pool would not enable/disable until the software was restarted if an algorithm was disabled/enabled for devices.[/li]
    [li]Previously created device template files used by the GPU Manager are now updated with any new algorithms and miners that may have added to the software after these files were created when they are opened after an upgrade.[/li]
    [li]Fixed display issues involving the Benchmark grids in both the Device panels and the GPU Manager where the currently displayed benchmarks wouldn't always reflect new values due to data caching.[/li]
    [li]Users can now elevate the CPU processor priority of most GPU mining processes to improve latency. This is a device specific setting that can be enabled for the highest throughput devices in a system. Users are advised to enable this setting for one device at a time to determine how it affects system responsiveness. It strongly recommended to not enable this setting on every device on systems with more GPUs than processor cores as it will reduce performance rather than improve it. This setting should not be used on any GPU while CPU mining as it will adversely affect the performance of the CPU miner.[/li]
    [li]Added a warning message about using the CPU Cuda Scheduler and Elevated Process settings on too many GPUs in the same system.[/li]
    [li]Enabled changing intensity settings for Xevan and Z-Enemy miners[/li]
    [li]Fixes an issue where Phi was not being enabled for Z-Enemy in certain upgrade situations[/li]
    [/list]

    The following fixes and improvements are in Hash Auger 1.8.4:
    [list]
    [li]Added Z-Enemy Miner 1.08 for faster Bitcore, Phi, x16r and x16s mining.[/li]
    [li]New CPU Affinity feature assigns individual miner processes to specific CPU cores to increase GPU mining performance. This feature is disabled on CPUs with less than 4 cores  and turned off by default on systems where there are more GPUs than CPU cores. Whether or not this feature improves performance on systems with more GPUs than CPU cores depends on the overall speed of the CPU, number of GPUs and the other background tasks running on the system. This feature is turned off when the CPU is enabled for mining. This feature can be turned on and off manually in the new Advanced Settings tab.[/li]
    [li]Hash Auger will now automatically switch to using an alternative miner (when one is available) after multiple miner errors have occurred while mining an algorithm with the preferred miner.[/li]
    [li]Added a new Quick Setup feature for new users. After the user has entered a computer name, a Bitcoin or Litecoin wallet address and selected a display currency, the software will automatically create an appropriate wallet, configure two auto-exchange pools and start benchmarking the devices.[/li]
    [li]DSTM can now be benchmarked when either MiningPoolHub or Zpool is enabled instead of requiring that MiningPoolHub be enabled.  Also, the DSTM benchmarking process will automatically extend itself for a few more iterations if a result has not been found during the default benchmarking time.[/li]
    [li]Added a Quick Setup window for new users. After the user has entered a computer name, a Bitcoin or Litecoin wallet address and selected a display currency, the software will automatically setup an appropriate wallet, configure two auto-exchange pools and start benchmarking the devices.[/li]
    [li]Added the option to exclude benchmark hash rates when copying device settings in the GPU Manager.[/li]
    [li]Fixed an issue where the device Minimum Earnings Amount was being ignored in certain situations.[/li]
    [li]Fixed an application error that occurred when manually starting to mine with an algorithm that hasn't been benchmarked yet.[/li]
    [li]Fixed display issues on rigs with a large number of GPUs[/li]
    [li]Updated XMRig-Nvidia to 2.6.1[/li]
    [li]Updated XMRig-CPU to 2.5.3 since 2.6 is still in beta.[/li]
    [li]Updated JayDee miner to 3.8.8[/li]
    [li]Divided the App Settings between General and Advanced tabs.[/li]
    [/list]


    Hash Auger 1.8.3 hash been released with the following new features:

    [list]
    [li]The new GPU Manager panel consolidates the configuration of multiple GPUs into a single, unified display; the individual device panels are still available for making device specific adjustments and/or modify CPU settings. In the GPU Manger, users define a group of settings, select the GPUs that those settings will be applied to and then press the Apply button in the lower right corner.  All GPU settings can be adjusted using this feature, including algorithm-specific overclock and intensity settings.  Users can select a GPU's current settings as the basis for the new settings and then adjust those settings instead of manually entering new settings. GPU configurations can also be saved to disk as template files and then applied later on. For instance, users may want to define separate overclock profiles to account for seasonal differences in ambient temperature and/or electric rates or to test more aggressive overclock settings.  Device template files also allow users to easily transfer Hash Auger device settings from one rig to another. [/li]
    [li]Modified the behavior of the Auto-Update Benchmark feature so that it now tracks performance for each pool individually so that the algorithm-switcher can now compare hash rate performance between pools along with prices, fees and other factors. Users can still define an overall hash rate adjustment for each pool and both adjustments will be used in the calculations.[/li]
    [li]The Update Available notification is now more visible.  The Gear icon in the Setup tab is now replaced by the Download Package icon when a newer version of the software is available.  This makes the notification much more apparent when the Mine tab has focus. The Download Update button on the Setup tab is unchanged. The Update Available message box that appeared on startup has been removed to streamline the auto-start process. [/li]
    [li]Added new APAC and UK servers for Quantum Mining Pool.[/li]
    [li]Added several new wallet coins[/li]
    [/list]


    Hash Auger 1.8.2 includes the following updates:
    [list]
    [li]Improved handling of Stratum Connection Failed miner errors.  If the software encounters a communication error involving more than three different algorithms on the same pool within an hour, the software will temporarily disable the pool when using the algorithm switching feature.  If the user is mining a specific coin and more than 10 of these errors occur for the selected pool within the same hour, the software will temporarily disable the pool and turn on automatic algorithm switching so that the mining rigs stay productive.[/li]
    [li]Users can now choose to include unpaid (immature and confirmed) balances in wallet amounts for pools that provide this information. This is an application and not a pool-specific setting. [/li]
    [li]Individual algorithms can now be disabled for auto-exchange pools to prevent the automatic algorithm switcher from using specific algorithms on each of these pools. This setting does not affect the ability to manually select specific coins for mining.[/li]
    [li]The number of seconds that the software will wait before starting a new algorithm (the cool-down period) on each GPU is now a user-customizable setting.  Users with 1060 and 1070 GPUs can usually use a lower setting than users with 1080s. Some users with 1080ti GPUs or highly overclocked cards may prefer an even longer cool-down period. The default value for this setting is 10 seconds and the minimum value is 5 seconds. This is a device-specific setting, so users can set different cool down periods for different cards. The easiest way to determine the optimal cool-down setting for a GPU is to watch the device usage in a utility such as Afterburner and time how long it takes for the GPU to drop back to its idle clock speed (usually around 140 mhz) after it stops mining.  [/li]
    [li]Users can now enable a more CPU-intensive cuda scheduler for individual GPUs. Doing can provide GPUs with faster access to the CPU to validate results and get new work - which may improve hash rate consistency for high-throughput cards. However, this comes at the cost of higher CPU utilization for each card that uses this setting. Therefore, use of this feature should be limited to the fastest cards in a system and should not be used when also mining with the CPU. On systems with more GPUs than processor cores, it is usually more efficient to limit use of this feature to a subset of cards so that the CPU is not fully utilized. For example, on an eight core processor, consider enabling this feature on no more than six cards. Only some versions of CCMiner miner support this feature.[/li]
    [li]Benchmarking Nevermore and Xevan miners will now use either Blazepool or Zergpool depending on which pool is enabled instead of requiring Zergpool to be enabled. [/li]
    [li]Added Lyra2, Sib and Myr-gyr to the list of algorithms that are disabled by default for new users and when benchmarks are reset.[/li]
    [li]Since Nevermore is a full CCMiner variant, more algorithms than just x16r and x16s are now enabled for it. Depending on the user's hardware, this miner may be faster at some algorithms than the other versions of CCMiner also included in the software.[/li]
    [li]Included Alexis CCMiner which may provide higher hash rates for x17 and a few other algorithms.[/li]
    [li]The automatic selection of the preferred miner for each algorithm during benchmarking now considers each miner's dev fee.[/li]
    [li]API Key and API ID are now hidden for those pools that do not use these settings (basically every pool except for NiceHash and MiningPoolHub).[/li]
    [li]Fixed an issue where the Algorithm Overclock input boxes wouldn't properly enable/disable in certain situations after copying benchmarks from one device to another.[/li]
    [li]Added Monkey and a few more x11 coins to the list of wallet coins.[/li]
    [/list]

    Hash Auger 1.8.1 has the following fixes and enhancements[:
    [list]
    [li]Changed GPU Intensity to Utilization to better describe how this feature works and to distinguish it from the individual algorithm intensities.[/li]
    [li]Added Quantum Mining Pool and Cryptopool.party to the pools that do not auto-exchange. (now supporting 17 pools in all)[/li]
    [li]Pool price settings are now hidden instead of being disabled if a setting does not apply to a pool.
    [/li]
    [li]Copying over benchmarks from one device to another now includes whether or not the algorithm is enabled.[/li]
    [li]Added the ability to clone all the settings for a single GPU to all other GPUs. This is done using the new Clone button in the lower left corner of the device panel and is primarily intended for users that have only one model of GPU in their rig.
    [/li]
    [li]Nicehash users can now select the type of wallet they are using so that the price calculations include the appropriate fee. Also, NiceHash users can now include the .002% withdrawal fee for non-Coinbase wallets in the price calculations by enabling the Include Exchange Fee? option on the pool.[/li]
    [li]Benchmarking now uses custom algorithm intensities with those miners (Klaust, Tpruvot, Nevermore) that support this feature.[/li]
    [li]Tpruvot miner now only benchmarks enabled algorithms that haven't already been benchmarked instead of every algorithm that the miner supports.
    [/li]
    [li]A number of obsolete and unprofitable algorithms are now disabled by default to reduce the time required to benchmark GPUs. Users can still enable these algorithms if they wish. This does not affect users upgrading from previous versions unless they reset all existing benchmarks using the Clear button.[/li]
    [li]Fixed issue with Tribus not being benchmarked correctly. [/li]
    [li]Users mining individual coins can now specify an exchange fee for each wallet and the software will include these fees in the price calculations.
    [/li]
    [li]UI Performance improvements displaying redirected miner window output. This buffering may result in a slight delay in updating the contents of a panel, but provides a smoother UI experience.[/li]
    [/list]


    Hash Auger 1.8 includes the following improvements:

    [list]
    [li]Miner Dev Fees are now included in the price calculations.[/li]
    [li]Increased the cool-down period between algorithm switches to better reflect the longer cool-down period that 1080 and 1080ti cards require to improve stability and performance on rigs with these cards.[/li]
    [li]Added full support of Zergpool's new Mine Coin (MC) parameter which allows users to mine specific coins in addition to the pool's traditional algorithm ports.  Hash Auger can now compare prices for specific coins on Zergpool in addition to the pool's standard algorithm prices. Users can configure the software to use Zerpool's specific coins, its algorithm ports or both. Users also have the flexibility to have the pool auto-exchange the trade-able individual coins to BTC/LTC or a different payout coin. Alternatively, they can use separate wallet addresses to mine specific coins instead. Finally, Hash Auger will exclude individual coins that Zergpool can't auto-exchange unless the user assigns a wallet for one or more of these coins to the pool. See the entry on [url=https://hashauger.com/faq.html]https://hashauger.com/faq.html[/url] for more information.[/li]
    [li]Fixed issue where algorithm intensity settings are not copied over from one device to another when copying benchmarks and overclock settings.[/li]
    [li]Fixed issue where algorithm overclocks and intensity settings were not applied in certain situations.[/li]
    [li]Added Star Pool (auto-exchange) and Pickaxe.pro (no auto-exchange) pools. Pickaxe.pro has very stringent API use limits, so it is recommended that wallets only be added to Pickaxe.pro when the pool is disabled to prevent the software from trying to get updated rates after each new wallet is added. Only enable the pool once all the appropriate wallets have been added or the pool may temporarily block your IP address from using its API.[/li]
    [li]Upgraded JayDee CPU Miner to 3.8.7.2 - includes improved support for some new Aragon2d variants[/li]
    [li]Code modifications to prevent the developer contribution from running a second time in the same day if the software was upgraded after the developer contribution already ran that day. This applies only to upgrades installed to the same directory as the previous version; the developer contribution may run a second time if the upgrade is installed to a different location or if the previous version was uninstalled rather than simply upgraded.[/li]
    [li]Added Start Mining After Benchmarking option.[/li]
    [li]Pools are now organized between Auto-Exchange and Without Auto-Exchange categories. Use the two toggle buttons in the top right corner of the pool list to change which category is displayed. Auto-Exchange pools are shown by default.[/li]
    [/list]

    ----------------------------------------

    Hash Auger 1.7.2 Maintenance Release
    [list]
    [li]Fixed pricing for Nist5 and CryptonightV7 on NiceHash.[/li]
    [li]Changed Klaust miner to Cuda 9.1 version. Existing users will see a warning about this miner having been deleted on startup, but the software will download the correct copy automatically. You shouldn't have to re-benchmark if you are doing a straight upgrade without uninstalling.[/li]
    [/list]


    Hash Auger 1.7.1 Maintenance Release
    [list]
    [li]Modified the software to reflect recent CryptoNight API changes on MiningPoolHub[/li]
    [li]Added support for CryptoNightv7 on NiceHash[/li]
    [li]Merged Nevermore miners together to streamline benchmarking and improve x16s performance.[/li]
    [li]Fixed an issue where the developer contribution may run a second time if the system was rebooted after the first contribution already ran[/li]
    [li]Added algorithm, coin and pool information to Klaust and Ethminer miner panels that don't show the real-time hash rate.[/li]
    [/list]

    -----------------------------------------


    Hash Auger 1.7 includes the following improvements:

    [list]
    [li]New Price Spike Limit feature can be used to ignore coins that have unrealistic estimated earnings due to coin-forks or incorrect pricing data.  As demonstrated by recent issues with Bulwark, Verge and other coins on various pools, this can prevent hours of wasted mining before a pool suspends the problematic coins. Simply enter the maximum realistic earnings amount for each device and the price-switching feature of Hash Auger will ignore any coin that has a higher estimated earnings.[/li]
    [li]Miners who live in areas with variable-rate electricity costs (peak/off-peak pricing), have solar power or want to restrict mining to a certain time of the day can now disable devices or set custom minimum earnings amounts and/or power limits for a specific time block each day.[/li]
    [li]Added support for Unimining.net pool.[/li]
    [li]Automatic checks for newer versions of the software (prompt for download only after app startup, periodic messages in the output text while mining); added a download update button that is enabled when a new version is available.[/li]
    [li]Updated Nevermore miner to 0.2.2[/li]
    [li]Fixed pricing of new Quark coins on Blazepool.[/li]
    [li]Fixed issue where cached coin prices were not properly filtered for pools that don't auto-exchange.[/li]
    [li]Performance improvements when calculating prices if more than several pools are enabled.[/li]
    [li]Re-benchmarking Klaust miner will only run algorithms that haven't been benchmarked instead of all algorithms supported by the miner.[/li]
    [li]Tpruvot benchmarking performance improvements.[/li]
    [li]Added support for Scrypt algorithm (disabled by default due to low GPU profitability and relatively long benchmarking time)[/li]
    [/list]


    ----------------------

    Hash Auger 1.6.2 fixes issues related to decimal separators in some localized versions of Windows preventing the software from correctly parsing miner output. This version also improves the consistency in which localized decimal separators are displayed. Finally, this release allows users to select different servers for BSoD pool.

    ----------------------

    Hash Auger has been updated to version 1.6.1 and includes the following improvements:
    [list]
    [li]1. Fixed compatibility issues with pools like BSoD and Yiimp.eu that don't auto-exchange:[/li]
    [li]    a. Connection issues no longer occur if the mined coin isn't the pool's current wallet.[/li]
    [li]    b. Fixed intermittent duplication of coin names from these pools in the coin drop-down lists.[/li]
    [li]    c. Adding and removing wallets assigned to these pools will now refresh the Profitability grid and auto-switcher instead of having to wait until the next pool data refresh.[/li]
    [li]    d. Added a couple dozen of new coins from these pools.[/li]
    [li]    e. Fixed incorrect price estimates with BSoD.[/li]
    [/list]
    [list][li]Fixed an issue where Nevermore sometimes wouldn't benchmark.[/li]
    [li]Fixed an issue where the miner output tabs may start to impact UI performance after a few days of mining.[/li]
    [li]Added the ability to display monetary currencies based on conversions from ETH, BCH and LTC in addition to BTC.[/li]
    [li]Currency amounts for ETH, BCH and LTC wallets can now be displayed.[/li]
    [/list]

    ----------------------------------------

    Hash Auger has been updated to version 1.6 and includes the following new features:

    [list]
    [li]Temporarily suspend mining on individual devices when the estimated earnings fall below the minimum level set by the user for each device; then automatically resume mining on those devices when prices improve. This is managed per device, so less profitable devices can be suspended while more profitable devices keep mining. [/li]
    [li]The minimum percentage increase in prices required before the software will switch to a different algorithm/coin is now user-adjustable.[/li]
    [li]Users can now define custom algorithm intensity levels for any miner that support this feature (currently Klaust, Nevermore-Raven, Tpruvot). Changing intensity levels from the miner’s default can improve stability and/or increase performance depending on the miner, algorithm and device. Users can combine this new feature with device and algorithm specific over-clock profiles to finely tune their GPUs while still enjoying the benefits of automatic algorithm-switching.[/li]
    [li]Added XMRig (CPU and GPU) miner just in case Cryptonight mining profitability improves after the upcoming fork[/li]
    [li]Added the option to subtract auto-exchange fees from MiningPoolHub price estimates.[/li]
    [li]Upgraded Tpruvot CCMiner to the latest release: now supports x12 (Galaxy Cash) and x16s (PigeonCoin) algorithms. [/li]
    [li]Fixed a display issue where the currency value of manually selected coins was not being shown correctly for certain coins on some pools.[/li]
    [li]Fixed a few issues specific to CPU benchmarking.[/li]
    [/list]


    The latest version can always be found at: [url=http://hashauger.com/download.html]http://hashauger.com/download.html[/url]

    -------------------------------------------------------

    Hash Auger 1.5.1 includes the latest versions of Nevermore-Raven and JayDDee miner that were released after Hash Auger 1.5

    Hash Auger 1.5 contains the following enhancements and new features:
    [list]
    [li]4 more miners: Klaust, Nevermore-RavenCoin, Nevermore-PigeonCoin and Xevan.[/li]
    [li]2 more pools: BSoD  and AltTank (a new pool specializing in RavenCoin and PigeonCoin).[/li]
    [li]Automatically adjusts for incorrect x16r benchmarks in Tpruvot 2.2.5.[/li]
    [li]Benchmarking process improvements.[/li]
    [li]Automatically revised benchmarks are now based on the miner's accepted hash rate instead of the average hash rate.[/li]
    [li]Updated JayDDee miner to 3.8.5 (adds support for Yescryptr32/WaviCoin and a couple more algorithms)[/li]
    [li]Added a CPU Type device setting so that the optimal CPU miner executable can be used.[/li]
    [li]Fixed a hash rate conversion issue that sometimes occurred when a miner fluctuated between multiple units (kH/s -> MH/s for example) [/li]
    [li]Further improvements to identifying and reviving failed miners.[/li]
    [/list]

    -------------------------------------------

    Hash Auger 1.4.2 fixes pricing for a new coin on HashRefinery

    Hash Auger 1.4.1 fixes a price conversion issue with Sha256t on Zpool.ca

    Hash Auger 1.4 - adds two more pools: Blazepool and BlockMasters.co.  It also adds a Miners tab that displays the redirected text output from the hidden mining windows and the ability to manually restart individual devices.  MiningPoolHub users should try out the new feature that excludes that pool's auto-switch ports from the algorithm-switcher; these ports have high network hash rates (high difficulty/smaller shares) and may not be as profitable for GPU miners as mining specific coins.

    ----------------------------------------------------

    Hash Auger 1.3 - adds the ability to assign overclock settings to individual devices and specific algorithms on each device (see description below). Also improves error handling of failed miners/devices and updates Zergpool settings to use its new stratum server format.

    Starting in version 1.3, Hash Auger allows users to assign a default GPU Clock Offset, Memory Clock Offset, Power Limit and Temperature Limit to each device.  Furthermore, these settings can be assigned to specific algorithms per device to maximize tuning capabilities. So not only can you tune each card separately, but you can further tune how each card runs each algorithm.  Every time Hash Auger switches algorithms based on a change in profitability, it will check to see if custom performance settings have been entered for that algorithm on each device. If they have, Hash Auger will use those algorithm specific settings; otherwise the device default settings will be used. Individual algorithm settings can be quickly copied from one card to another using the Copy Benchmarks feature. This new device settings feature is completely optional and can be easily enabled/disabled per device to prevent conflicts with existing device configurations.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Hash Auger 1.2.1 - a maintenance release that removes the Nanashi miner due to stability issues that some miners with larger rigs were experiencing. Also allows miners to assign custom names to individual devices.

    Hash Auger 1.2 - now supports x16r (RavenCoin) GPU mining, two more pools: Yiimp.eu and MiningPanda.Site and CPU mining enhancements

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Hash Auger 1.1 - now supports ethash mining with Ethminer.  Also, some benchmarking enhancements.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Hash Auger 1.0.1 has been released to add support for Zergpool and AHashPool.

    ----------------------------------------------------------

      Announcing the first release of Hash Auger, a GUI-based multi-pool mining manager for Nvidia GPUs.

      Key features:

      1.) Completely GUI-based interface with point and click management of mining activities; automatically hides miner windows to keep your desktop unobstructed while still displaying miner output in tabs and, optionally, log files.

      2.) Streamlined benchmarking process - each card is benchmarked simultaneously instead of one after another.  Unprofitable and obsolete algorithms are disabled by default to reduce benchmarking time. Users can copy benchmarks and other device settings from one device to another and manually adjust benchmarks if they desire. Hash Auger can automatically revise benchmarks with real-world mining results to improve price estimates.  Unlike some other software where the developer selects what the perceive to be the "best" miner for each algorithm, Hash Auger identifies the best miner for each GPU based on a combination of benchmarks, real-world performance and any developer fee that the mining software may have. Also, all benchmarking work done online is credited to the user's wallet, not the developer's - which is why some pools must be enabled before benchmarking certain miners.

      3.) Each device mines in its own process to isolate miner errors and to allow each device to run a different algorithm when appropriate. For instance, due to the differences in memory architectures, some algorithms such as Equihash and Neoscrypt do better on 1070's than on 1080's. Depending on pool prices, it can be more profitable to mine a different algorithm on each type of card than mine the same algorithm on all cards.

      4.) GPU Manager allows users to easily modify device settings on all or a set of GPUs.  Users can save these settings to disk as templates for later use or to copy device settings to different rigs.

      5.) Users can change GPU utilization and even disable specific cards, such as their primary graphics card, without affecting other cards. Easily set custom overclock settings and miner intensity levels per algorithm on each GPU to get the most performance and stability. Users with CPU power to spare can enable additional GPU mining settings that can stabilize hash rates in exchange for higher CPU utilization. With version 1.9.4, Hash Auger also supports the ability to define custom starting difficulty and difficulty adjustment percents for each algorithm.

      6.) Automatic restart of crashed and frozen miners. Detects pool stratum server communication errors and temporarily suspends pools if too many communication errors occur.

      7.) Automatically switches algorithms and pools based on current pool prices, each device's benchmarked hash rates, real-world mining performance data, pool and other fees and other factors. Unlike some other products that only mine pools that auto-exchange, Hash Auger also supports pools that do not auto-exchange and can automatically switch work between both types of pools.

      8.) Pool fees are deducted from pool prices when calculating estimated profitability. For some pools such as MiningPoolHub and NiceHash, additional fees such as wallet and auto-exchange fees can also be deducted from the earnings estimates. Users can define custom price and hash rate adjustments for each pool to tune the algorithm switching functionality.

      9.) Unpaid balances can be displayed for each pool - including internal NiceHash and MiningPoolHub balances if users enter their API Keys.

      10.) Can display BCH, BTC, ETH and LTC balances in any one of a number of global currencies.

      11.) Displays current pool prices along with profitability listings so that users can spot trends that an automatic switching algorithm might miss.

      12.) CPU Mining support - includes two CPU miners and the ability to select a different coin to mine on the CPU than on the GPUs.

      13.) Automatic download of miner executables. Will display warnings if a miner file has been deleted or quarantined by anti-virus software.

      14.) Can automatically suspend mining on individual devices if the current estimated earnings are below an amount set by the user; automatically resumes mining once prices rise above that level.

      15.) Price Spike Limit can be set to prevent wasting time mining coins with unrealistically high prices.

      16.) Advanced pool settings allow users to take advantage of advanced settings that some pools offer, such as the MC Parameter on both Zergpool and Blockmasters that allow users to mine specific coins while still auto-exchanging to BTC or LTC. Similarly, Hash Auger supports dedicated coin ports used by many pools that do not auto-exchange.  Additionally, users can configure each pool's pricing to be based on current estimates, recent actual prices or an adjustable mix of both to customize the software to their mining preferences.  Users can disable individual algorithms and coins on pools and even define price adjustment percents to prioritize certain items over others.

      Currently Supported Pools:
      *AHashPool
      *AltTank
      *AntMinePool
      *BlazePool
      *BlockMasters.co (both auto-switch ports and individual coins using the MC parameter)

Ethminer .13 has been added in Hash Auger 1.1 for ethash mining. x16r (RavenCoin) mining has been added in version 1.2. Version 1.5 adds: Klaust CCMiner, Nevermore-x16r (RavenCoin), Nevermore-x16s, Xevan and XMRig miners. Alexis CCMiner was added in 1.8.2. Z-Enemy Miner was added in 1.8.4. 1.8.6 adds ccminer-phi and spmod-raven. 1.9.7 added support for Excavator 1.4.4 and PalginMod 1.1. CryptoDredge and Ravencoin miners were added in 1.9.8.  1.9.9.5 added support for CoolMiner. 1.9.9.7 added support for Dumax Miner. 1.9.9.9 added support for Pigeoncoin miner.

      I wrote and use Hash Auger to manage my own mining rigs. I have made a sincere effort to thoroughly test the software with the hardware that I have available.  However, my testing has been limited to Windows 10 machines running a mix of NVIDIA 1070, 1080 and 1080 Ti cards with the latest NVIDIA drivers. Your results may vary and I would appreciate any feedback.

      *** Windows 10 will probably warn you about an unknown publisher when you run the installer; click the More Info link and then Run Anyways to continue with the install. ***

    Nice. I like the feature that you look at profitability for each card seperately.

    What miners do you use? I noticed that Excavator is fast on 1080ti but other miners (hsr) are faster on 1050ti for instance. Do you also support different miners for different cards?

    Hash Auger uses DSTM .6 for Equihash and two variants of CCMiner (Tpruvot 2.2.4 and nanashi 2.2-mod-r2) for the other algorithms on GPUs.  Two versions of CPUMiner are used for CPU Mining.  I am looking at adding other miners, but unfortunately some are written in such a way that it is not possible for me to redirect their screen output, which allows the Hash Auger software to hide the mining windows and monitor real-time miner performance. If you want to review the miner output, there is an option to log it to disk.

    It is correct that different miners can be faster on different algorithms and cards. For example, all three of the miners I listed above will mine EquiHash but DSTM is the fastest of the three by far. Nanashi is faster than Tpruvot on some algorithms, but the differences are less dramatic. It is important to note that hash rates change a couple percent during regular mining regardless of which miner is being used. Hash Auger will run the fastest benchmarked miner for each card, but users can select a different preferred miner for each algorithm on their devices if they want want to.

    I will definitely look into adding both Zergpool and aHashPool in the next update.  For the initial release, I wanted to focus on reliability before adding a lot of pools.

    As beursstarter noted, there is a 20 minute daily dev fee that is less than 2% of a day's mining time. It runs as a single block of time chosen randomly each day instead of being based on current pool prices or profitability.

    Yes there is a hashfee of 20 minutes per day.

    Can you add support for Zergpool as well?

    I just released a new version that includes support for both Zergpool and AHashPool.  Thanks for the suggestions!

    What software are you using for cpu, and does you support bytecoin, burst, double, unicoin, turbocoin, tyger, and ripple? Could something like curecoin work on this, cause that would really be neat.

    Two different CPU miners are included at this time: CPUMiner and JayDDee miner.  Together they allow you to mine almost 100 algorithms, but not all of those algorithms are currently mined by the supported pools. While I think CureCoin is an awesome project because it helps to contribute to valuable medical research, it is unfortunately not a good candidate for a profit switcher because it can take a few hours for your computer to complete the Folding@Home tasks that reward you with CureCoin.  To the best of my knowledge, Ripple cannot be mined.

    As for the other coins, it just depends on which algorithms those coins use and whether or not the mining pools currently support those coins. For example, bytecoin uses Cryptonight, but the supported pools usually only mine Monero with that algorithm. I would have to do more research on the other coins in your list to know if they are supported because most of the pools switch between several coins per algorithm, so by using my software you could be mining dozens of coins. Normally, I am not concerned with specific coins because I have the pools auto-exchange my earnings into one of a few coins. But my software will also work if you would like to mine a specific coin at a specific pool.

    Since you are asking about CPU mining, I would like to add that this weekend I will be releasing the next version of the software was a few CPU mining enhancements and the addition of a couple new pools.

    Thank you for the reply. Does your app also support xmrig cpu software? What kind of cpu support do you have? I take it there is also dual mining support(not just + gpus but one gpu mining two different things cause it's the best option)? Can you also look into KodakCoin also? Will there also be an interface update also? Anyone else here want to comment on how this compares vs mph, and awesome miner?

    Edit: one last question does your software and algos take in to consideration how well a coin was previously doing and then factor that in?

    Thanks for your interest.  Smiley  

    Both CPUMiner and JayDDee miner support Intel and AMD processors.  My software uses the avx2-optimized versions of those miners, so it is most suitable for CPUs that are a few generations old or newer.  I have personally tested it on an i7-6700, a Ryzen 5 1600 and a Ryzen ThreadRipper 1950x.  Unfortunately, there are a few algorithms that will run fine on the i7, but not the Ryzen 5. Also, even though they both still mine on it, neither of those miners properly handles the ThreadRipper's large number of cores - even if with a custom affinity parameter - so they end up using its logical cores and not just the physical cores. I will continue to add new versions of both miners to my software as they are released to continue to improve their performance, reliability and comptability.

    The current version of Hash Auger does not support xmrig at this time.  Due to Cryptonight's declining profitability and all the uncertainty concerning the impending fork, it has been less of a development priority. However, I will probably add support for both CPU and GPU mining with XMRig in the near future.  Similarly I have plans to add support for dual-mining algorithms on the same GPU with Claymore at some point. However,  I have had my Nvidia mining rigs for over half a year and dual-mining ethash along with something else has never been among the most profitable mining options regardless of which pools and mining manager I used.

    Instead, I have been focusing my efforts on trying to find new opportunities for miners who use my software. For example, in the most recent release (1.2), I have added support for CPU and GPU mining x16r (RavenCoin).  I also added two more pools (Yiimp.eu and MiningPanda.site) that support a number of previously unsupported coins, such as CreativeCoin.

    Each new version of the software brings some user interface tweaks.  For example, version 1.2 adds the ability to pick different algorithms for simultaneous CPU and GPU mining. If you have any specific user interface concerns or suggestions, let me know.

    That is an interesting question about a coin's historical prices being factored into the profit switching.  Considering the volatility of coin prices and the fact that hash rate and difficulty also affects estimated earnings, putting too much emphasis on a coin's past performance can skew its profitability estimates. If a coin's estimated earnings starts to tumble because of a sudden increase in hash rate or the coin loses popularity, the coin's past performance can work against a miner by encouraging them to keep mining it despite the decreasing earnings. Similarly, if a coin suddenly rises in value due to market demand, its low historical performance could prevent a miner from taking advantage of the earnings spike. Besides, if the miner is having the pool auto-exchange their coins for another coin like BTC or LTC, those coins are only worth how much the pool can sell them for once they mature - regardless of what those coins were worth in the past. So while I think it is an interesting concept, my software doesn't directly look at historical prices because I don't believe doing so would help improve the user's earnings any.

    Thank you for the reply. Your software sounds very good. I take the new version you mentioned in a previous post is out by now? Im told Cryptonight is forking so that might help with profits a bit, and that nicehash and others will update to support the new fork.

    Yes, Hash Auger 1.2 is available on the website https://hashauger.com/download.html for download right now.  I am currently monitoring the Cryptonight forking situation and planning on including XMRig for both CPU and GPU mining in a future release. Thanks again for your interest and feedback.

    Thanks again for your feedback and questions. i don't know if XMRStak will be in the very next release, but it is my goal to include it sometime in the next couple of weeks.

    Any way to automatically back off GPU overclocks when mining Ravencoin? X16r will crash your cards with the normal overclocks that are fine for other coins. A script that turns Afterburner off/on maybe?

    Sorry to hear about your issues starting my software. As noted in my website, Hash Auger has only been developed for and tested on Windows 10.  I can try to compile a different version that may run on Windows 7, but I won't have anyway to test or support it.

    That is an interesting idea. I can definitely see the merit of being able to run a custom Afterburner script before the software launches any algorithm. I'll take a look into it. Thanks for your feedback!

    Well you can run it in either Windows 7 compat mode for simple use or just run a VM with windows 7 installed to see if it works
