@chescos chescos released this Mar 7, 2019


Upgraded to XMR-Stak 2.9.0.

This release introduces the cryptonight_r POW of the upcoming Monero fork on 9th March 2019.

Please note that this version of XMR-Stak is a bit rough around the edges due to the emergency nature of the Monero fork. CPU mining in particular will be very slow. XMR-Stak plans to release a more polished version around the fork date, and we will update the Idle-Empire miner accordingly.
