Hi,

This is to announce three items at once, mostly related to John the Ripper
password cracker.

1. We've setup the Openwall file archive - a locally-hosted web-based
archive with current and old revisions of Openwall software releases,
user contributions, and other related files.  Previously, this content
was only available via FTP locally and from the mirrors.

The file archive is available at:

http://download.openwall.net

Of specific interest are user contributions and other files related to
John the Ripper (269 files as of this writing):

http://download.openwall.net/pub/projects/john/contrib/

Many directories contain README.txt files, which are automatically
displayed below the file lists.

2. New community wiki pages have been created on topics related to John
the Ripper: "How to retrieve and audit password hashes from remote Linux
servers" and "Sample password hash encoding strings":

http://openwall.info/wiki/john/tutorials/remote-linux
http://openwall.info/wiki/john/sample-hashes

Further contributions to the sample hashes page are welcome.

3. magnum has contributed a new MPI patch for John the Ripper, which
supports parallelization of cracking modes other than "incremental":

http://download.openwall.net/pub/projects/john/contrib/mpi/2010-magnum/
http://openwall.info/wiki/john/parallelization#Extended-efforts
http://www.openwall.com/john/doc/MODES.shtml

Older MPI patches were limited to just the "incremental" mode.
