It is rather abandoned though not intentionally (for me causes are studying and bad time management (fixing it actively now)). But both me and Shinnok would like to continue the development. Only a tiny part is done. So there is a plenty of work. The project is not "owned". Any help is appreciated. And you are welcome to participate at any time. For GSoC developer will be chosen fairly: developer who suits for that task better will be chosen if any (I am ready for that I may be not chosen). > 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. I am sorry. I released and announced it yesterday. http://openwall.com/lists/john-dev/2012/03/22/19 Alexander, did not I miss something?

Thanks! I will apply. Regards, Aleksey Cherepanov
