BFGMiner 3.7.0 released

Item posted by Luke Dashjr <lukedashjr> on Wed 27 Nov 2013 04:14:57 PM UTC.


Human readable changelog:
- Support for new Bi*fury and Twinfury mining devices.
- Device probing has been rewritten to scan all devices in parallel (much faster). As a result, the order of devices found is no longer deterministic (consistent) at all.
- Parallel device probing makes --device's former syntax unusable, so it has been modified to use the same pattern matching as --set-device. Note that things like --scan-serial ztex:all are now valid, but probably much more dangerous than with VCOM drivers; a bare driverless "all" only affects VCOM drivers for this reason.
- Pattern matching for --set-device (and now --device) supports identifying specific devices by serial number or path. To use this, insert either of these between @ symbols where you would have previously put an index. So for example, --device 'BFL@FTWOTOP4' (bitforce device with serial FTWOTOP4) or --set-device '@/dev/ttyUSB0@a:osc6_bits=52' (first processor of device on /dev/ttyUSB0).
- BFGMiner-written config files now include the scan-serial and set-device settings.
- cpu and opencl drivers have been disabled by default in all cases. Use -S cpu:auto or -S opencl:auto if you need them.
- Automatically workaround cgminer driver breakage on Linux.
