Also I would like to know what are the other algorithms that needs to be implemented.As the GSoC ideas page gives very little idea of what needs to be done ,it would be very helpful if you could elaborate a little more.I am also considering to implement the above bug fixes as part of my project if you think it is necessary.Also I'm considering to get the latest generation Radeon GPUs so that I can code more efficiently for the newer GPUs.This would also enable me to implement multi GPU cracking in JtR.In the first phase I will code for the radeon 4000 series and then modify it for the newer GPUs.The reverse could also be done but I'll follow your suggestions on this.
