Subject: Mathieu's weekly report #7

 Accomplishments :
1) Since Shinnok and I changed a lot of code (and added threading) in
Johnny since the beggining of GSOC, I wanted to take some time to deeply
test normal use-cases of Johnny to prepare for our first summer release
(planned around june 27th).

- I found and fixed a big show stopper for our release, cygwin jumbo latest
version and Johhnny didn't work on Windows. I made a crash report and
played with GDB

- I found and fixed two bugs regarding the new tab widget for selecting of
john mode. First bug had the effect of loosing parameters with new attacks.
We can't rely on the isVisible() method. Second bug was option incremental
external name not working. See https://github.com/shinnok/johnny/pull/29

- Fix https://github.com/shinnok/johnny/issues/26

2) Also for the release, I prepared all the DLLs that we need for
dynamic-linked qt johnny on Windows. I also started reading about the Qt
windows installer but I interrupted this to give priority to task #1 (test
and bugfixing for release).

3) Make progress on the multiple session management task.

4) Follow-up the discussion regarding which platform we should support for
johnny upcoming release for binary packaging and source testing on
john-users. So far, I asked again if users had other requests but didn't
get other answer since last week(OS X mavericks and up and Windows 32/64).
I'll  give it another try and make a brand new thread on the list with
another title to get people attention this week.

Priorities:
- Terminate the multiple session management task
- Integrate it and the other bugfixes to shinnok/master.
- Have the qt installer working for johnny on windows
- Continue testing with different use-cases and bugfix for release

- Dhiru asked me to test the mingw build of jumbo for window on monday this
week. I found out that exiting with CTRL_C or 'q' isn't working with  the
windows command line(and also with johnny) (see
http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2015/06/15/4). I'll keep an eye on
this discussion because if CTRL_C makes john crash, CTRL_C_EVENT will make
it crash too so it'd be interesting that johnny support cygwin build AND
mingw build.

- I started on monday a discussion about which qt min version we should
support on john-users for release , so I'll follow-up on this during the
week http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2015/06/16/1
