Summary: Detects Weak Passwords
John the Ripper is a fast password cracker (password security auditing
tool). Its primary purpose is to detect weak Unix passwords, but a
number of other hash types are supported as well.

* Thu Sep 09 2010
  - update to 1.7.6:
    + Generic crypt(3) support (enabled with "--format=crypt") has been
      added for auditing password hash types supported by the system but
      not yet supported by John's own optimized cryptographic routines
      (such as "SHA-crypt" and SunMD5).
    + Optional parallelization of the above has been implemented by
      means of OpenMP along with glibc's crypt_r(3)
    + Optional parallelization of John's own optimized code for the
      OpenBSD-style Blowfish-based crypt(3) (bcrypt) hashes with OpenMP
      has been added
    + A more suitable version of 32-bit x86 assembly code for Blowfish
      is now chosen on Core i7 and similar CPUs (in 32 bit mode)
    + More optimal DES S-box expressions for PowerPC with AltiVec
    + The bitslice DES C source code has been reworked to allow for
      the use of arbitrary SIMD intrinsics, which was previously only
      implemented for AltiVec as a special case
    + Support for SSE2 and MMX intrinsics with bitslice DES (as an
      alternative to the supplied assembly code) has been added
      (currently only enabled for SSE2 on x86-64)
    + Support for mixed-type longer virtual vectors (such as SSE2+MMX,
      SSE2+ALU, AltiVec+ALU, and other combinations) with bitslice
      DES has been added
    + The loader will now detect password hashes specified on a line
      on their own, not only as part of an /etc/passwd or PWDUMP
      format file
    + When run in "--stdin" mode and reading candidate passwords from
      a terminal (to be typed by the user), John will no longer mess
      with the terminal settings
    + John will now restore terminal settings not only on normal
      termination or interrupt, but also when forcibly interrupted
      with two Ctrl-C keypresses
    + A new numeric variable has been added to the word mangling rules
      engine: "p" for position of the character last found with the
      "/" or "%" commands
    + Support for the use of "--format" along with "--show" or
      "--make-charset" has been added
    + The choice of .rec and .log filenames for custom session names
      has been made more intuitive
    + Support for "\r" (character lists with repeats) and "\p0"
      (reference to the immediately preceding character list/range)
      has been added to the word mangling rules preprocessor
    + The undefined and undocumented behavior of some subtle word
      mangling rules preprocessor constructs has been changed to
      arguably be more sensible
* Thu Feb 11 2010
  - update to
    + Major performance improvements
    + John will now tend to use more memory to achieve better speed
    + Some previously missed common website passwords found on public
      lists of "top N passwords" have been added to the bundled common
      passwords list.
    + Support for back-references and "parallel" ranges has been
      added to the word mangling rules preprocessor.
    + The notion of numeric variables has been introduced into the
      rules engine.
    + New rule commands have been added
    + New rule reject flags have been added
    + The default rulesets for "single crack" and wordlist modes have
      been revised to make use of the new features, for speed, to
      produce fewer duplicates, and to attempt additional kinds of
      candidate passwords.
    + The default for the Idle setting has been changed from N to Y.
* Mon Feb 08 2010
  - only build MMX variant on >= i586
  - guard TARGET=linux-x86-any with %ix86
  - enable building on sparcv9
* Mon Sep 28 2009
  - update to
    + "make check" has been implemented
    + The "--test" option will now take an optional argument - the
      duration of each benchmark in seconds
    + Some very minor bugs that did not affect normal operation have
      been fixed.
    + Some unimportant compiler warnings have been fixed, a source code
      comment has been made more verbose and more complete.
* Tue Sep 09 2008
  - update to
    + Two Blowfish-based crypt(3) hashes may now be computed in
      parallel for much better performance on modern multi-issue CPUs
      with a sufficient number of registers (e.g., x86_64).
    + New make targets: macosx-universal, macosx-x86-64, solaris-x86-64-cc,
      solaris-x86-64-gcc, solaris-x86-sse2-cc, solaris-x86-sse2-gcc,
      solaris-x86-mmx-cc, solaris-x86-mmx-gcc, solaris-x86-any-cc,
    + Minor bug fixes.
    + "DumbForce" and "KnownForce" external mode samples have been
      added to the default john.conf.
