Subject: RE: Re: Problem running John on Windows when trying to crack sha512 encrypted /etc/shadow from Linux

I think I'm going to build the latest versions and put it on the custom-builds site.   I haven't done this in a while... 

Are we ever going to have a minor version number again, something like john-1.8.1-jumbo-1?  We haven't had one in a while, and that is part of the reason why I haven't made builds on the custom-builds wiki.  

Is there an appropriate name for a bleeding edge build?  What a stable (Is that even still around?)? 
If so, do you guys think it is better to build stable or bleeding?

Since we haven't used a minor unofficial build number in a while, is there a time/version that is better to build?

Great, but replying to list questions off-list is anything but helpful to the rest of us. That version does not utilize SSE2 so it's slower. 
Here's 1.7.9-jumbo-5:
Benchmarking: sha512crypt (rounds=5000) [64/64]... DONE
Raw:	298 c/s real, 295 c/s virtual

And here's bleeding Jumbo:
Benchmarking: sha512crypt, crypt(3) $6$ (rounds=5000) [SHA512 64/64 OpenSSL]... (8xOMP) DONE
Raw:	1674 c/s real, 218 c/s virtual
