Yeah.  I've just commented on this on Twitter.  Reusing my tweets:

At first glance, it appears that the training and test sets have huge
overlap, which is not the case we optimize for / care about.  IIUC, the
training sets are 15%/30%/100% subsets of the test set.  Normally,
training set passwords are not seen in hashes to crack.  Anyhow, there's
obviously huge improvement between hashcat 0.41 and 0.42 (or unreleased
betas leading to 0.43?)  Well done, atom!
