I'm not so sure about jumbo-8, but it appears that you've decided for me, and I have no grounds to object - it is my fault that I haven't released a new core version yet. I am sorry about that. I do intend to resume core John development. > I would like to add a new format flag in Jumbo: FMT_GPU.

OK, although I think the revision to self-test should eventually be made for all formats, and done() should be implemented for the GPU formats so that they can be included in --test. Aren't you merging the patch that adds done() now? Anyhow, you're the one to decide on this, as someone more active at JtR development than I am. ;-) Alexander
