Hm... it says: "This release has supported added for the Parallella board,
with implementation of bcrypt on the Epiphany accelerator and in the Zynq
programmable logic." - I find it clear it supports only bcrypt.

However, you can always build john with make linux-arm32le-neon and use
only ARM CPU (host) to crack other formats as well (I don't know if there
are any benchmarks, but if you need numbers, I can run the benchmarks
sometime next week). In this case, you wouldn't be using Epiphany nor Zynq
FPGA. Maybe this is what you had in mind? (when you said support, I
immediately considered using Epiphany and/or Zynq FPGA).

Best regards,
