Changes in v0.7.9
Fixes for mixed rig mining on Linux.
Added --eth_epoch argument to simplify testing epochs.
Added --eth_aggr_mode option for automatic aggressive mode B on 8GB Polaris GPU.
Added --watchdog_disable argument.
Changes in v0.7.8
Update for the upcoming Haven hard fork (July 20, 2020).
Minor Nimiq optimizations (max 1-2%, mostly Vega and Navi).
Fixed CPU usage issue when redirecting stdin to / dev / null.
The fixed pool name returned by the Nimiq API.
Changes in v0.7.7
Added support for Nimiq Polaris / Vega (silent mode only).
Integrated the Nimiq node.js network proxy into the miner.
Fixed a Nimiq bug that could cause stocks to be lost, especially in pools with lower wardiff levels.
Fixed a Nimiq bug that could lead to duplicate shares on startup for pools with low diffs.
Fixed regression bug for ethash Nicehash, now using correct stratum mode again.
Added support for Nimiq Navi.
Added support for solo mining in Nimiq (setting -p m = solo)
