Date: Mon, 21 Sep 2009 04:21:26 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: john-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: JtR 22.214.171.124 Hi, I've released John the Ripper 126.96.36.199, along with an update of the jumbo patch to this new version (a mere update, no new stuff yet). Besides adding proper links to these new releases, I've also cleaned up the JtR homepage a bit further: http://www.openwall.com/john/ The changes made since 188.8.131.52 are desirable primarily for packages of JtR, such as for *BSD "ports" and Linux distributions: * "make check" has been implemented (for Unix-like systems only). * The "--test" option will now take an optional argument - the duration of each benchmark in seconds. * Section .note.GNU-stack has been added to all assembly files to avoid the stack area unnecessarily being made executable on Linux systems that use this mechanism. * Some very minor bugs that did not affect normal operation have been fixed. * Some unimportant compiler warnings have been fixed, a source code comment has been made more verbose and more complete. Since version 184.108.40.206 has existed for a year and proved to be reliable, and since the changes between 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 are so minor, 22.214.171.124 is being declared the new "stable" release.
