  • Application can now mine scrypt, N-Scrypt, and scrypt-chacha based coins
  • The command-line options for setting the algorithm have changed!
    --scrypt - Mine scrypt based coins
    --scrypt-chacha (this is the equivilant of what --scrypt used to do!)
    --nscrypt - Mine N-Scrypt based coins (vertcoin)
  • Scrypt and N-Scrypt have different kernels. You can use the N-Scrypt
    kernel for mining Scrypt if you like by passing "--kernel nscrypt" on
    the command line. The converse does not work though.
  • buffer-size is now fully completed, and thread concurrency is no longer
    needed. thread-concurrency is still a valid option if you want to use it.
  • Implemented new defaults if you do not provide a buffer-size or
    thread-concurrency. It will attempt to allocate 88% of the GPU memory.
  • lookup-gap now defaults to 4 if it is not set.
  • W/U is back on the hashmeter at the top of the curses display
  • Rejected count is now the number of rejected shares instead of the value
    of the sum of all the rejected shares
  • Fixed OpenCL 1.2+ patch regarding BFI_INT patch still being done.
  • cleanup code and extraneous files in project.
  • More updates to the and scrypt-readme for further documentation.

YACMiner 3.4.2-yac2

Version 3.4.2-yac2 - 19th February 2014

  • Implementation of --nfmin, --nfmax, and --starttime to allow mining of coins other than YACoin
  • Update of SCRYPT-README to clarify how best to tune your miner using the settings available and how to use the new NFMin, NFMax, and StartTime parameters

The new settings for NFMin, NFMax, and StartTime are POOL LEVEL values, and if you are setting any pool to be mined that is not YACoin, all pools must have these values set. Note that currently, if your miner switches to a pool with a different NFactor, the settings for each card will not change, and will not likely be optimal for that pool. (This feature is in the works)
