Aleksey has code that I think he should just release in a tarball for people to try out (which will help us decide on further direction for the project), but somehow he is not doing that despite of my suggestion that he should do it with no further delay. Meanwhile, the code may be obtained via git: http://openwall.info/wiki/john/johnny git clone git://github.com/AlekseyCherepanov/johnny.git As it relates to GSoC, Aleksey is welcome to apply (preferably along with making and announcing that tarball thing finally), and others may apply as well. Then we'll have to make the tough decision on whether to work on this under GSoC 2012 (I am already seeing some interest in this task, which is great), and who will be the one to work on it (under GSoC, we can't have more than one student work on the same project; we may have two students work on two different approaches to the GUI independently, but we're unlikely to use GSoC resources like that). BTW, here's one of the ideas for further functionality of the GUI: http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2012/01/19/4 and Aleksey's thoughts on it: http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2012/01/21/8 Please let us know if you have a specific proposal (not for this one idea, but for the GUI project in general). Thanks, Alexander
