Here are some news stories and discussion threads: (German, 58 comments) (14 comments including my replies) (Russian, 50 comments including my replies)

Here's my Slashdot submission:

(if the story is posted, it will be at a different URL, unfortunately).

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.
