All of those three highlighted by Alexander are high on my list too. I'll add to that proper backend vs UI separation and threading support, UI overhaul(we don't want the app to look reminiscent of the KDE 3 era in 2015 and beyond) and the ability to just drag files into the app, have *2john applied on them automagically and if successful start a session. If we do that at least in the near term it would be awesome.

It's great that you've changed your mind, so please go ahead and register and apply since you don't have that much left. :)
I have until Apr 23 I think to apply as a mentor.
