However, if you only want specific parts I could produce a proper patch. Currently, here are the differences between my stuff and the jumbo patch I know of: * probably less stable * less ciphers supported, only tested with x86, x64 linux * markov-chains based password generator, and associated utilities * usage of the SSE functions when they are available * a shortcut for the netlm cipher (part of the original LM hash could be bruteforced. It could be possible to crack it almost as fast as the original LM hash) * an optimized "old lotus" implementation for x86 * some tweaks which i find useful, such as printing the lines that have not been found when doing -show I believe that the most useful thing that I have and that is not part of the jumbo patch is the markov generator, which is more effective than -inc (for my usage, and especially for slow ciphers) and let you manually but easily distribute work. So, what would you consider worth inclusion ? -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
