Changes in v6.2.2:

  • Fixed definition of AVX2 / AVX512.
  • Fixed, 32-bit Windows builds crashing on startup.
  • Fixed crash KawPow on older processors.
  • Improved display of information about computational errors on GPUs.
  • Fixed disabling NiceHash for KawPow.
  • Fixed reading of AMD GPU status (temperature / power / clock / fans) in Linux.
  • Fixed crash when using the HTTP API.

Using XMRig

The preferred way to configure the miner is the JSON configuration file, as it is more flexible and user-friendly. The command line interface does not cover all functions, such as mining profiles for various algorithms. Important parameters can be changed at run time without restarting the miner by editing the configuration file or making API calls.
