Subject: JtR homepage update; Windows builds

Hi,

As many of you are aware, JtR homepage contained some truly obsolete
content, like talking about jumbo "patches" and how to apply them,
whereas we've been releasing jumbo tarballs and in fact recommending use
of code off GitHub lately.

I've finally made some of what I felt were most important updates:

http://www.openwall.com/john/

Now we have these links:

Latest development source code in GitHub repository (tar.gz, ZIP)

pointing to:

https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper
https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/archive/bleeding-jumbo.tar.gz
https://github.com/magnumripper/JohnTheRipper/archive/bleeding-jumbo.zip

and this link:

Latest development build for Windows, updated automatically (ZIP)

pointing to:

http://daily-builds.appspot.com/latest

Since I wasn't involved in the setup of the latter, I'd like to know who
was (magnum?) and how/where the builds are done.  I notice they're with
MinGW rather than Cygwin - do we consider this reliable, complete enough,
and recommended for use?  I guess it doesn't include OpenCL support,
does it?  What about OpenMP and "--fork"?  Other features?

Thanks,

Alexander
