Thank you.  This has helped me a lot.  I started with the above, and
made edits to make it more Freshmeat-friendly:

MD5 and SHA-1 based hashes have been sped up with SSE2 intrinsics.
md5_gen has been expanded with more hash types.
UTF-8 support has been added ("--utf8").
MPI parallelization support for all cracking modes has been integrated.
OpenMP parallelization support has been added to more hash types.
New formats have been added: mskrb5 (offline attack on MS Kerberos 5
pre-authentication data), rawMD5unicode (MD5 of UCS-2 encoded
plaintext), and salted_sha1 (faster handling of some LDAP {SSHA} hashes).
The "unique" program, Markov mode, ETA display, and programming interfaces
have been enhanced.

(The line breaks will be replaced with spaces.)

I hope I did not introduce any errors.  I'll proceed to submit this now.
