It has been a while since there has been an official release of the cpuminer-multi fork from tpruvot though he was working actively on the source code of the CPU miner with multiple algorithms supported. The cpuminer-multi is the most functional fork of cpuminer that comes with support for the largest number of algorithms and a lot of optimizations for them to get you the most performance out of your CPU. Do note however that some dedicated forks of cpuminer for a specific algorithm may still provide better performance, but if you want flexible solution with many algorithms supported then cpuminer-multi is the choice. The latest official binary release version 1.1 comes with many new algorithms added including GroestlCoin, Diamond and Myriad, Pluck algorithm, ZR5 algo (ZRC), Luffa algo, Skein2 algo (Double Skein for Woodcoin), Animecoin algo (Quark variant), Dropcoin pok algo, BMW-256 (MDT) algo and the Axiom algorithm. There is also a basic API remote control some other new features and fixes. Do note thta if you want to get the latest updates you should always compile from source as we are not seeing often official binary releases, though the 1.1 should be up to date for some time now.

If you have some spare CPU power for mining various GPU mineable algorithms along with the GPU mining rigs and use the generated heat to keep you warm at home this winter, then you might want to check out the new cpuminer fork from Tanguy Pruvot (source). This fork has support not only for the common ASIC mineable SHA256d and Scrypt algorithms that you don’t need to bother with on a CPU anyway, but also for many other algorithms such as X11, X13, X14, X15, Cryptonight, Fresh, Blake, Neoscrypt and others. The performance you can get from a single CPU is nowhere near that a GPU can generate, but still if you manage to mine enough to partially cover the electricity used and use the heat generated from the CPU to keep you warm in the winter it might not be that bad… especially if you use the available CPU power of any GPU mining rigs that you are utilizing already.

Sandor111 has released an updated version of his cpuminer fork adding a TUI (Text User Interface) containing the most important information that you would need to know for your Gridseed ASIC miners in an easy to read format (source here). Another new useful feature in the latest release is the autodetection of the number of chips, so no need to set it manually via the command line anymore. We have a windows binary available for you, and we do recommend to give it a try if you were sticking to cgminer because of the TUI available there, especially now that cpuminer also has one. If you want you can still download the previous cpuminer for Gridseed with no TUI, we’ll have it available for people that prefer to use that, and below you can download the new TUI version for windows.
