I made other minor changes here and there, including the important addition of documentation on which PHP versions' mt_rand() algorithm is being attacked: it is 5.2.1 through 7.0.x. (I'd like to extend that range as well, but I haven't completed those changes yet.) The new php_mt_seed 3.3 is downloadable at the usual location: http://www.openwall.com/php_mt_seed/ Lukas Odzioba helped test and benchmark it on second generation Xeon Phi (Knights Landing). Specifically, running on Xeon Phi 7290 (used as the host processor), php_mt_seed 3.3 searches the full 32-bit seed space in 3 seconds in the simplest invocation mode, or in 3.5 seconds in our more advanced example. Previously, on first generation Xeon Phi 5110P, php_mt_seed 3.2 achieved respectively 7 and 11 seconds at these tests. Alexander
