Heads-up on XMR v8 support …

It’s been a while since I last posted (I’ve switched employers, and been rather busy in the next job …), and as I can see from the many emails I got quite a few people had already started to wonder whether I had disappeared from the face of the earth completely – and in particular, gotten a bit concerned what would happen with lukMiner once the upcoming Monero v8 fork will hit the road (which looks pretty soon now).

Thus – to hopefully put those fears to rest, here a quick heads-up: As of a few minutes ago I finally finished a first draft of the XMR v8 changes, and at least on the testnet they seem to be working fine. I haven’t done full testing and burn-in, yet, so final release may take a bit longer – but still: so far everything looks good for a “v8” version even before the actual switch will happen….

With that – happy mining!

      1. There was a hard fork on June 3rd, for ASIC resistance, AEON7 is now the algo. I would be mining it on PHI if you supported it.

        Again very glad your back.

      2. Same as what I just wrote to similar comment to Mulch (literally copy n paste 🙂 ) :
        Oh-kay ….. I’m a bit confused. Both Aeon and Trtl have been upated several months ago, and should already be running. WHen I read this earlier this week I thought I had maybe missed another fork, but I just double-checked the command line from the “supported coins” page, and it worked out of the box with latest version!?

  2. The updated cryptonight-lite algorithm is used for TRTL too! I’d love to point my Phis at AEON and TRTL. Thanks for your hard work lukminer!
