Changelog - SimpleMining OS

We want to inform our users about all the notable changes and improvements that we've made (and will be making) in our Simple Mining Operating System based on Linux.
To find out more about updates, check our changelog regularly. Here you can learn about new developments, new features, bug fixes, etc.
We are also giving users ability to vote each change - to know better if you like it or not.

  • 2020.04.03
  • Dashboard update

    • now you can change Group OC/ Group Config names directly in their settings window (it had bug with saving OC settings, bug is fixed now)
  • 2020.04.03
  • SimpleMiningOS images update

    • New image (please consider it as BETA) SM-5.0.21-13-a19.30-n440.64 for AMD RX 590 / Vega / Radeon VII / RX 5500 / 5600 / 5700 and NVidia GTX 1650 / 1660. Updated AMD kernel driver. Updated NVidia driver. Revert AMD libraries to 19.30 because of not fully supported 19.50 by some miners. Please do not use it with RX470/480/570/580 series as it will lower your hashrate. Only newest should be used with it AMD !)
  • 2020.04.03
  • Miners update

    • gminer-v2.04-cuda9.2 (Fix release. Included libnvrtc libraries required by KAWPOW algo)
    • gminer-v2.05-cuda9.2 (Improved performance for qitmeer up to +30%. Decreased CPU usage for qitmeer - more than twice)
    • nbminer-nebutech-v29.0 (Add support for RVN new algo kawpow mining on Nvidia & AMD gpus)
  • 2020.04.01
  • Dashboard update

    • recovery of lost GPU statistics is completed
    • >10% of invalid shares will now show alert in rigList
    • fixed timezone setting for new customers
  • 2020.04.01
  • Miners update

    • bminer-v16.1.0 (Fix fidelity issues on Cuckaroo29m. Support for BFC and Cuckatoo32. Improve stability of ETH mining)
  • 2020.03.31
  • Miners update

    • nbminer-nebutech-v28.1 (Support HNS & HNS+ETH mining on NiceHash)
    • wildrig-multi-v0.20.5.4 (Fixed low difficulty shares on 666pool. Implemented x17r-protocol2 to support other pools - e.g. official mainnet-pool01.ufo.link)
  • 2020.03.30
  • Dashboard update

    • BILLING CHANGE - due to worse time in the world and high electricity costs the billing system is changed. You (user) will benefit from this change but we(smos) will loose some on that "feature". Until now you was charged for "number of online rigs in last 24h", and now you are charged for "number of online rigs in last 1 hour". This means that if your rigs are working 12 hours daily during cheaper electricity price then your account will be charged for 12 hours instead of 24 hours. For now this is temporary change and may be reverted in future but no rush there. If you turning off your rigs, you can check how it is behaving on account graphical charts of your balance by clicking on button that is next to Actions button on RigList.
    • saving new OC settings in Group OC will now refresh Group OC table
    • fixed some display bug and
    • fixed after deleting rig and his mining group, and then turning rig back on, rig will be assigned to default group rather than to non existing one
    • fixing in progress ... due to bug individual GPU stats are missing during period 11.02.2020-24.03.2020 on (for 1M, 3M, 1Y periods) - we are restoring them from backups as we have them. It will take 1-3 days to finish
    • (beta) we released new image with 19.30 amd libraries which fixed lolminer issue but also this is less stable than 19.50 image. Image name is SM-5.0.21-12-a19.30-n440.64-v1268.img.xz and can be downloaded from download.simplemining.net
