What's New
Version 4.2.3:
  • During network outages the devices hashrate would appear static, this has been fixed.
  • Did a major rewrite of the code that writes and parses the config files. Now if you choose [W]rite from the [ S]ettings menu it should write most of the options you've given on the command line. Some options were never written correctly and many weren't written at all previously.
  • Changed the toggling display to sit on the most important screen and not toggle by default, but it can be re-enabled via the [D]isplay menu.
  • The hashrate line for per-device also includes the Work Utility at the end now instead of the alternate screen to better fit within 80 columns.
  • Added a --widescreen option by request which does not toggle and shows all information. This can be enabled/disabled via the display menu.
  • The --device and --remove-disabled commands have been removed. They are a hangover from the GPU days and choosing devices with this command does not give any meaningfully reliable way of choosing devices.
  • Added checking for any number of chips on bi*fury (BXF) devices and added the extra output in the API for them.
  • Hexfury USB sticks should now be detected and come up as HXF instead of BXF.
  • BXF bits can now be configured on the command line in case people wish to push the maximum for hardware modded devices (normally 54).
  • Solo miners can now add their own signature of up to 32 characters to the coinbase with the --btc-sig option.
  • miner.php updates.
  • Fixed getwork share submission which was broken for the rare pools remaining that still use it.
  • Other low level bugfixes/improvements.
  • Access the complete release notes.

While mining on a PPC, if even possible, would be very inefficient, this is DOA on a G5. You get the immediate advice that it "is not supported on this architecture", so you can't even try.

"DOA on a G5" because it's "not supported on [that] architecture"? That's an unexpected surprise. It says, right in the info, "Platform: Intel 64 / Intel 32 / OS X." There's not even a hint that it would work on a G5. You never know.

Hey Macarone! It's actually just the launcher script that isn't supported. If you download the "miner only" package from my website, it should work on PPC.
