Not sure if anyone has started to work on a standalone cpuminer. Searching for "cpuminer" I only found one thread (https://forum.zcashcommunity.com/t/zcash-mining-pool/816) related to pool mining.
Has getblocktemplate been changed at all? or is it going to be pretty much the same as in the bitcoin code?
I haven't had much time to take an in-depth look at the current zcash code due to work and domestic obligations.
Once the testnet is up and working again, I may start working on a cpu miner.
