Second to the mailing lists, you can regard the semi-official GitHub repo as the center of JtR-Jumbo universe: https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper The default branch is "unstable-jumbo" but it's permafrozen in an archeological bugfix-only state so you should use the "bleeding-jumbo" branch instead, for everything. We use GitHub issues as a better-than-nothing bug tracker & to-do list: https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/issues There's also an old wish-list on the wiki, pretty outdated. I don't use it anymore but there may be stuff in there that's not listed in Issues (while other things might be implemented already - I'll try to update in soon): http://openwall.info/wiki/john/wishlist Also, a lot of formats are merely PoC code, totally unoptimized and/or not using SIMD. Feel free to pick some and make them a couple hundred percent faster with ease. Oh btw we also have a Test Suite at: https://github.com/magnumripper/jtrTestSuite Do you have means/skills to work with OpenCL? Or 256/512 bit SSE intrinsics? magnum
