I made a crash report and played with GDB - I found and fixed two bugs regarding the new tab widget for selecting of john mode. First bug had the effect of loosing parameters with new attacks. We can't rely on the isVisible() method. Second bug was option incremental external name not working. See https://github.com/shinnok/johnny/pull/29 - Fix https://github.com/shinnok/johnny/issues/26 2) Also for the release, I prepared all the DLLs that we need for dynamic-linked qt johnny on Windows. I also started reading about the Qt windows installer but I interrupted this to give priority to task #1 (test and bugfixing for release). 3) Make progress on the multiple session management task. 4) Follow-up the discussion regarding which platform we should support for johnny upcoming release for binary packaging and source testing on john-users. So far, I asked again if users had other requests but didn't get other answer since last week(OS X mavericks and up and Windows 32/64). I'll give it another try and make a brand new thread on the list with another title to get people attention this week. Priorities: - Terminate the multiple session management task - Integrate it and the other bugfixes to shinnok/master. - Have the qt installer working for johnny on windows - Continue testing with different use-cases and bugfix for release - Dhiru asked me to test the mingw build of jumbo for window on monday this week. I found out that exiting with CTRL_C or 'q' isn't working with the windows command line(and also with johnny) (see http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2015/06/15/4). I'll keep an eye on this discussion because if CTRL_C makes john crash, CTRL_C_EVENT will make it crash too so it'd be interesting that johnny support cygwin build AND mingw build. - I started on monday a discussion about which qt min version we should support on john-users for release , so I'll follow-up on this during the week http://www.openwall.com/lists/john-users/2015/06/16/1 Content of type "text/html" skipped
