Release coming tonight

Post by Steve Sokolowski » Wed Oct 09, 2019 12:27 pm

A new release will be issued tomorrow morning at around midnight EDT.

The purpose of this release is to resolve a major compatibility issue with some newer miners. The mining servers, since 2013, have always sent a response that differs from the official stratum protocol when a miner connects. Apparently, older miners never had an issue with this data, but newer miners do. The protocol is poorly designed and this response differs from all the other responses to all other commands.

This issue may also have been responsible for many of the tickets we receive from people who are unable to connect. Most of these customers never reply with their IP addresses, so we have to close the tickets due to being unable to lookup what their errors were. People who have not been able to connect should try again tomorrow to see if their issues have been resolved.
