Summary: folks like our added support for many new non-hashes, they find the "slow hash" speeds curious, some accuse us of not having optimized things properly/fully (partially true, partially not - e.g., some have unreasonable expectations on what's possible judging by speeds for other hash types achieved with other tools), many want "fast hashes" on GPU as well, we got a bug report for Lukas' WPA-PSK code (one of the comments at OpenNet), people want to build on Mac OS X and Windows (so we need to support these targets better, including adding GPU support), people ask for more/clear/task-specific documentation (we need more of it - such as separate files and/or wiki pages for every "non-hash" type), someone in the "heise online" thread asked for a GUI.
