Overview of rc10 release

Hey PiMPs just wanted to let you know there’s some new updates released in time for Christmas. Although we posted the changelog on the product pages I also wanted to provide some commentary and opportunity for you to comment and ask questions. 🙂

Besides optiminer and claymore zcash miners, and lots of other bug fixes for performance and reliability… We upgraded a lot of things behind the scenes that are responsible for communication between the agents and minerfarm server. These changes are the foundation for some really exciting new features we have planned. Mostly, it means there will be more control for you and more information about your rigs.

Glad to see all of your support as we continue to refine and release updates and features to your PiMP rigs! See you on IRC!

How to update to rc10

So, the rc10 release of pimp1.9 and pimp2.0: available 2 different ways:

#1: Your My Downloads section on getpimp.org always should have the latest release build. So your download links were updated to the rc10 links. Yes, I know that it shows a couple different links for each version, this is because we made the website provide you all versions of PiMP that work with your key, no matter what version you “checkout with”.

#2: Run command pimpup in your PiMP terminal, and it will self-update pimpup as well as all pimp and miner.farm software and default conf files automatically! Then, the only other changes to bring your rig up to rc10 are: Update optiminer, and Update (install) claymore-zcash-amd miner. Both of these are menu items available in pimpup. Then if you like, you can also do: apt update && apt -y upgrade to install all the Ubuntu system package updates.
