gputool --resetto rebuild a fresh gpu-config.json file.
Added z-enemy miner for nvidia gpu mining, pimpup to install it.
Added new nvidia gpu mining profile #2512, bminer.dual.pcfg to mine ETHASH using bminer on nvidia. (Dual mining coming soon, when bminer fixes it.)
Added new nvidia gpu mining profile #2601, zenemy.dual.pcfg to mine X16r/xevan/phi (it's a ccminer fork.)

Updated gputool: gputool gets a makeover with a ton of formatting and guidance prompting, easier to read output, better error checking, human-readable gputool –update, and the centerpiece: you will be able to define your gpus in the gpu-config file based on busid, so your settings can follow the cards when you’re working on your rigs.
