[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 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]

[/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]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

[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]
