John the Ripper 1.0 was released in 1996.  John the Ripper 1.5 was an
almost complete rewrite, worked on in 1997-1998 and released in 1998.
Versions beyond 1.5 build upon that code base.

A prototype for what became John the Ripper's incremental mode was first
implemented in a separate program in 1995.

Why do you ask?
