John the Ripper version 1.7.5 is out, along with its corresponding jumbo patch update. This is yet another development version. There was no specific focus for this update, so a variety of minor enhancements were implemented (mostly in response to requests made, questions asked, and issues raised on the john-users mailing list lately). http://www.openwall.com/john/ http://www.openwall.com/john/#contrib The changes since 22.214.171.124 are as follows: * Support for the use of "--format" along with "--show" or "--make-charset" has been added. * The choice of .rec and .log filenames for custom session names has been made more intuitive. * A new numeric variable has been added to the word mangling rules engine: "p" for position of the character last found with the "/" or "%" commands. * Support for "\r" (character lists with repeats) and "\p0" (reference to the immediately preceding character list/range) has been added to the word mangling rules preprocessor. * The undefined and undocumented behavior of some subtle word mangling rules preprocessor constructs has been changed to arguably be more sensible. * Some bugs were fixed, most notably JtR crashing on no password hashes loaded (bug introduced in 126.96.36.199). 2. The tcb suite has been updated further to version 1.0.5. The primary change since version 1.0.4 is the reduction of the .data section size and thus of on-disk size of some components by 256 KB when tcb is compiled against Linux 2.6 kernel headers. http://www.openwall.com/tcb/ http://www.openwall.com/tcb/ChangeLog Alexander
