Date: Thu, 15 Sep 2005 05:01:42 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com Cc: john-users@...ts.openwall.com, owl-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: JtR 1.6.39; Owl-current 2005/09/13 ISO Hi, This is to announce two new "development" releases: John the Ripper 1.6.39 is out. It is available from the usual location: http://www.openwall.com/john/ Additionally, up-to-date documentation for John the Ripper is now available online: http://www.openwall.com/john/doc/ Changes in 1.6.39 (since 1.6.38) include: - the massive documentation update; - a fix for the "john --show" bug affecting split hashes (LM and bigcrypt/crypt16) introduced with 1.6.38 (thanks to Stephen Cartwright for the bug report); - the addition of a Mac OS X on Intel make target (thanks to Brian Bechtel); - the addition of a sample case toggler (in the default john.conf) for cracking MD4-based NTLM hashes (with the contributed patch) given already cracked DES-based LM hashes. The other new "development" snapshot is the Owl-current ISO-9660 image (dated 2005/09/13) featuring an initial version of our new installer, available for download under /pub/Owl/current/iso on the FTP mirrors: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/DOWNLOAD.shtml The new installer, developed by Andrey V. Stolyarov, is a C++ application. Unlike the old shell/dialog-based configuration utility (which has been retired), the new installer will actually guide the user through the entire installation process. Although the initial user interface is very spartan, the plan is to enhance this installer with a second ncurses/cdk-based UI. Other packages significantly updated since the last ISO snapshot (July 3, 2005) include: LILO, OpenSSH, mtree, strace, Postfix, sysklogd, libutempter, Linux-PAM, SimplePAMApps, tcb, procps, and John the Ripper. Please refer to the change log for descriptions of these changes: http://www.openwall.com/Owl/CHANGES-current.shtml -- Alexander Peslyak <solar at openwall.com> GPG key ID: B35D3598 fp: 6429 0D7E F130 C13E C929 6447 73C3 A290 B35D 3598 http://www.openwall.com - bringing security into open computing environments Was I helpful?
