ethOS 1.0.7 New Update and Features


A new ethOS version was released with a new interface, background and colors. The good thing they did is that you can now see actual hash rate for each GPU right on desktop also another great feature is that ethOS continue mining on other GPUs if one GPU overheats.

Here are the new features and bug fixes:

ethOS 1.0.7 changelog (released July 24th 2016)

Major Changes

Added multi-threaded per-GPU miner with hashrate per GPU (pool-side effective hashrate is correct, ignore pool-side reported hashrate).
Prevented multi-threaded ethminer instances from causing undue crashes and hangs.
Allowed ethOS to continue mining on other GPUs if one GPU overheats.
Added new ethOS theme/backgrounds and optimized ethOS desktop style.
Added charts for per-gpu hashrates on the stats panel.
Added reset-config command that resets config to factory default.
Created config setting and command to boot ethOS without graphics driver, for debugging purposes.
Added ability to lock ethOS desktop.
Created script to re-update if rig did not update successfuly.
Upgraded ethminer to a new version that supports nicehash.
Added documentation for new features to and to knowledge base.

Fixed cases where certain libraries were missing during update.
Fixed the way version is sampled during updates.
Added better development branch support to reduce bugs for all future versions.
Fixed cases where overheat scripts would incorrectly turn off mining on GPUs that threw bogus temperature data.
Separated fan ramp up from overclocking and started overclock procedure after boot is deemed successful.
Fixed a case where clear-thermals did not set GPUs to default core clocks.
Fixed syntax and issues associated with multi-threaded miner.
Cleaned up hashrate sampler to report hashrates more accurately.
Rotated all miner logs to prevent potential system hang.
Fixed a case where gathering certain GPU data for gethelp caused hangs.
Fixed cases where a proxy termination notice was displayed when proxy was not actually running.
Fixed black bars associated with different monitor aspect ratios by using gradients in the background.
Fixed issues associated with multi-threaded miner stratum connections.
Fixed issues associated with preparing ethOS image for end users.
