Hey Aleksey,

Nice to hear from you.

Far behind auto-completions as in the features it integrates with JtR?

You've guessed my intentions, I'll have some spare time in this last 
quarter and I'd like to use some of it on something gratifying, like 
Johnny. Get it a bit farther then it is now.

Without further ado, let's get down to business, what's the current 
latest branch that you've worked on(guessing master by the looks of it)? 
I'll take that current version for a spin and then come up with a plan 
that we can both work on. I have some features of my own that I'd like 
Johnny to support so I'll include those in that plan too. Any other 
standing features or plans that Johnny might have accumulated throughout 
time could be best added to this discussion.
