Ethash improvements (and more) release occurring in one hour

A release will be occurring in one or two hours.

The purpose of this release is to issue some ethash improvements. This release will cause the system to rarely issue stale shares; instead, "uncled shares" will be credited at a reduced rate. A second change will eliminate many shares that were rejected for "incorrect algorithm" errors because of a bug in the mining server.

We'll also release CryptonightR, the new Monero mining algorithm.

This release will require a restart of the mining servers and the share inserters, and will take about 5 minutes.
