    Added miner logging with proper log rotation to Claymore profiles. This will improve log management to prevent disk filling.

    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.
    Updated lightdm log rotation to increase rig longevity.
    Updated claymore-dual to v11.9.
    Updated z-enemy nvidia miner to 1.12a.
