From: Mathieu Laprise <mathlaprise@...il.com>
To: john-dev@...ts.openwall.com
Subject: Mathieu's weekly report #6

Accomplishments:
- Adapt HashTypeChecker to JohnHandler interface
https://github.com/shinnok/johnny/pull/19
- Implement 1.5.1 password guessing
https://github.com/shinnok/johnny/pull/20
- Implement a part of multiple session management : instead of always using
session "default.rec", I implemented a feature to load previous session
with a session history (see screenshot at)
https://github.com/shinnok/johnny/pull/24

Priorities:
Shinnok and Frank discussed about the other parts of multiple session
management and right now Shinnok is no more convinced that we need more
than session history at this point for this task so I'll switch to another
task regarding the settings until a decision is taken for multiple session
management. For more information, this discussion highlights the priorities.

Okay, I will do that. Which task are you referring to by the "Settings one"
? Are you talking about this issue
https://github.com/shinnok/johnny/issues/9 or "when we load a session, we
populate the UI with the settings(exemple check the --fork chekbox) ?
