I've made this more verbose:

MSSQL (old and 2005) and MySQL (SHA-1 based) hashes computation has been
optimized (these are 3 times faster on linux-x86-64i now).  (magnum)

I also added:

Raw SHA (SHA-0) support has been added.  (magnum)

Added info on the speedup achieved:

Lotus5 hash computation has been optimized, and optional OpenMP
parallelization has been added for it (now 12 times faster on an 8-core
linux-x86-64 machine).  (Solar)
