Subject: Johnny 1.1, the GUI for John the Ripper

I am proud to announce Johnny 1.1:

There are prebuilt and packaged binaries (deb, rpm, tarball) for Linux
32- and 64-bit on the wiki.

Johnny 1.1 is a result of 3 weeks of hard work, great help of Frank
Dittrich and many suggestions and hints from Solar Designer, Alexander
Cherepanov and Simon Marechal.

Johnny release 1.1 is oriented onto core john. It was tested with
john 1.7.9. Though all versions should work, even jumbo. All basic
things work well:
- export of cracked passwords through clipboard,
- export works with office suits (tested with LibreOffice Calc),
- user could start, pause and resume attack (though only one session
  is allowed globally),
- all attack related options work,
- all input file formats are supported (pure hashes, pwdump, passwd,
- “smart” default options,
- accurate output of cracked passwords,
- smooth work, i.e. no lags,
- nice error messages and other user friendly things,
- config is stored in .conf file (~/.john/johnny.conf),
- many minor fixes to polish ui were done.
