Subject: JtR Pro for Mac OS X


I've just sent out a cumulative announcement to our announce@ mailing
list, covering two JtR news items and one Owl issue.  Included below is
an excerpt from that announcement that is relevant for john-users:

John the Ripper Pro is now available for Mac OS X on both PowerPC and
Intel Macs, making use of AltiVec and SSE2 acceleration, respectively:

On Mac OS X, the features currently specific to Pro versions are:

- Pre-built and well-tested native package (dmg) which may be installed
the usual way - no need to compile.

- Universal binary that will run on both PowerPC and Intel Macs, making
use of AltiVec and SSE2 acceleration, respectively.  (A non-AltiVec
version is also included for users of older PowerPC-based Macs.)

- A large multilingual wordlist optimized specifically for use with
John the Ripper (4,106,923 entries, 43 MB uncompressed) is included in
the package, and John the Ripper is pre-configured for its use.

- The included documentation is revised to be specific for the given
package on Mac OS X rather than generic, making it easier to understand.

I'd like to thank Erik Winkler for his help in making this release
