Fixed during the contest. descrypt-opencl was the most usable format among the new mask formats. new fast hashes are fast only for fewer loaded hashes. For thousands of loaded hashes they are utterly slow and equivalent to multi-core cpus at best. Priorities: - Currently descrypt format is in a complicated state, sometimes I couldn't understand what/why I had done certain things the way I had done in the format. So un-complicate things as much as possible so that it easier for others and me to debug and understand the code later. - Start merging mask mode with main bleeding. Priorities for second half of GSoC: - Instead of adding new formats(which is relatively easy once you know how to do it and probably others can do it too), I'd be focusing on optimizing the 5 new formats(except descrypt) which are utterly slow in real world scenarios. Only descrypt performed as expected during the contest. Regards, Sayantan Content of type "text/html" skipped
