The Future of PiMP: To 3.0 and Beyond!
The PiMP platform is evolving quickly along with the changes to the AMD drivers and their relationship with the Linux kernel. Here’s what to expect under the hood over the next few months:
* PiMP 2.5.1 releases in April using CUDA 9.1 and the PiMP 4.15 Cheesesteak kernel.
* PiMP 2.6 is in the works for June, and will be based on Linux 4.16.
Keeping on the latest technology means being the first to support new GPUs, coins, and miners, as well as squeezing every last hash from your cards.
In addition to this amazing kernel work by the PiMP developer family in moving toward PiMP 3.0 generation, there are some headline features to be announced in the coming months.
PiMP 3.0 is going to give you much more control over miner versions and PiMP packages using the apt package system. For instance, you will be able to choose among versions of a miner and pick the one that works great for you. And the ability to provide more updates via pimpup instead of requiring a reimage, this is something that everyone loves.
Support Team Shout Outs
THIS ONE GOES OUT TO OUR FAVORITE AI
This month we wanted to focus on our favorite PiMP command tool: helpme
We’ve tapped our shiny red rigs together three times and the PiMP team is excited to announce that after consulting the man behind the curtain, helpme is getting a brain!
Getting smarter, faster, and easier, the next generation of helpme is going to look at the logs and tell you if it sees any problems. This will help you keep your rigs up and running smooth. And less troubleshooting time is more profit for you.
FIND THE LOVE OF YOUR MINE ON OUR FORUM
With future changes coming to your favorite coins, you’ll need the functionality of a miner that can switch to other coins. Let PiMP come to your rescue because we have lots of examples for how to quickly adjust to changes in the new market with new miners and regular updates. Since we are by miners, for miners, we fulfill as many feature requests as we can. Check out the posts in the product news section on the forum for the latest changelogs, release notes, and coin announcements! This month we added updates for claymore dual, bminer, dstm, ethminer, and over 12 new coins! Don’t want to wait for releases? Go to getpimp.org/beta to sign up for the Beta team.
SPRING CLEANING PiMP STYLE
We are underway renovating our entire web presence, and integrating all things PiMP and Miner.Farm into one site, built from scratch using up to date tools.
This means that using PiMP and Miner.Farm will be easier than ever; all your account information will be in one place for both PiMP OS purchases and Miner.Farm subscriptions, and you will be able to manage them from one place. With this comes a much improved interface, with far more flexible tools to manage your rigs and farm.
Phase One will give you a unified account; all your purchases and subscriptions in one place for both PiMP OS and Miner.Farm. We want to make sure this essential piece is working perfectly with payment providers and our internal accounting so the rollout is not in the immediate future, but it is first on the list for release, and we will be certain to let you know as the day approaches!
