Here's what I ended up tweeting: http://twitter.com/Openwall/status/76474625877479424 JtR 1.7.7-jumbo-5: more SSE2/AVX intrinsics, UTF-8, MPI, more #OpenMP, MS #Kerberos 5 pre-auth, ... http://openwall.com/1775 This left 16 chars free for retweets (such as to fit "Openwall" in those). BTW, those same SSE2 intrinsics work for 128-bit AVX as well (with the linux-*-avx targets). I've just confirmed this for -jumbo-5 specifically. > On the tweet, if we need to add "john-1.7.7-jumbo-5" or "jtr-jumbo5" or > something like that, then it becomes even harder to complete.

Technically, yes, but this is bad for retweets. > Note, that tweet was hard to do, since there is SOOO much added. Even the > freshmeat only glosses over the major changes.

But besides the technical restrictions, we have to consider that most people won't read long change lists anyway. Thanks, Alexander
