For MPI you should add Ryan Lim and AoZ.

Yes that was Simon.

Only until you stop and restore the job, not sure if that needs to be

I did mssql05 ;-) but more importantly I changed the NTHALFLM/NETLM to 
not be over-promiscuos (they loaded NETNTLM-only hashes) and fixed some 
other flaws originally from loader.c

You could mention yourself too here because you helped out a LOT all the 
way from the start!

Yes, that's Alain

That last level bump was me, but just skip that statement, it's not even 
phrased correctly and I can't come up with any better. Not important 
anyway, it's in one of the helper programs.

Wasn't me! I don't even know what that is about  :-D


I think you missed these (or I missed them now, the list is long!):
* NETNTLM format now supports Extended Session Security (ESS) hashes 
* Configurable ETA date string format (magnum)
* Optionally auto-disable OMP (or warn) when MPI is in use (magnum)
