The ccMiner fork from djm34 got updated to add support for the Keccak algorithm used by crypto coins such as MaxCoin along with some performance improvement for the Whirlpool algorithms. the Keccak algorithm is already supported by CudaMiner, but since it hasn’t been updated for quite a while and ccMiner has become the GPU miner of preference for Nvidia miners you can now mine coins using this algo with it as well. In terms of performance improvement for the whirlpool algorithm, with the new version we are getting 4550 KHS on a GeForce GTX 750 Ti, up from about 4400 KHS that we got with the previous update. On a GeForce GTX 780 Ti the hashrate is up from about 11500 KHS to 13000 KHS using the new code.

The windows binary available here is compiled for Compute 3.0, 3.5 and newer cards (32-bit version only) in a single binary, so it will not work on older cards. If you are unsure what version of Compute does your video card support check the included GPU Compute Capabilities List file. The binary is compiled with Visual Studio 2010 and is backwards compatible with Windows XP as well if you are using it on your mining rig.
