    • Significant changes to the amdgpu-pro 18.50 driver have required a bit of code to get ready. This has delayed new gputool, which in turn has delayed PIMP OS 2.9.x image, which is expected to be released in april.
    • Will be getting a list of miners/versions available and placing it on the website. Backend code is going well.

    AMDGPU - improvements on the driverset - but we havent yet gotten an OpenCL implementation that includes it.

    • mining support lags behind gaming market, especially on linux.
