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.

  • 2020.01.23
  • Dashboard Update

    • NEW METHOD of adding rigs. If you want to add new flashed rig within the same LAN network in which you already have your rigs, then press just Add Rig button and the rig will be added and email will be changed to yours. So when adding 2+ rigs, you do not need to set email in new rigs, it will happen automatically
    • fixed small validation bug in shedules
    • added confirmation window when reloading multiple selected rigs
  • 2020.01.22
  • Miners update

    • bminer-v16.0.2 (Performance improvement on Cuckaroo29m)
    • Added miner ccminer-monkins1010-cuda-v3.611 for Veruscoin (VRSC) mining on NVidia GPUs. This miner requires CPU with AES and AVX support.
    • API support for ccminer-monkins1010-cuda-v3.611 will be released soon.
  • 2020.01.22
  • Dashboard Update

    • NEW FEATURE - auto shedules - you can now set automatical sleeping for your rigs. Please make sure that your rigs are properly working with sleep feature (test it on manual sleep first). If you for example have unprofitable electricity cost during rush hour, you can tell your rigs to sleep automatically during that time. Creating and assigning rigs to shedules works the same way as group configs and group oc. Please make sure to set your timezone correctly as this is important :D

This release has a bug in API causing hashrate is not displayed in SimpleMining dashboard - waiting for fix release)
  • 2020.01.21
  • Dashboard Update

    • new alert icons in rig list and also new alert filters, you can see all icons by clicking on warning icon in filters
    • sorting of rig list is now done on server side instead of on user side which makes rigList work much faster at 500+ rigs

    • white template - added missing underline in group name and notes fields
