Update Information:

This is an excerpt from the upstream changes file. Changes considered irrelevant
for Fedora users have been removed.    The following changes have been made
between John 1.7.3.1 and 1.7.3.4:    * The "--test" option will now take an
optional argument - the duration of each  benchmark in seconds.  * Section .note
.GNU-stack has been added to all assembly files to avoid the  stack area
unnecessarily being made executable on Linux systems that use this  mechanism.
* Some very minor bugs that did not affect normal operation have been fixed.
been made more verbose and more complete.    The following changes have been
made between John 1.7.3 and 1.7.3.1:    * Merged in some generic changes from
JtR Pro.    The following changes have been made between John 1.7.2 and 1.7.3:
* 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).  * Bitslice DES assembly code for x86-64 has been
converted to use  instruction pointer relative addressing (needed for Mac OS X
support).  * 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, linux-ia64;  other changes to the Makefile.  * Minor bug fixes.  *
"DumbForce" and "KnownForce" external mode samples have been added to the
default john.conf.    The following changes have been made between John 1.7.1
and 1.7.2:    * Bitslice DES assembly code for x86-64 making use of the 64-bit
mode  extended SSE2 with 16 XMM registers has been added for better performance
at DES-based crypt(3) hashes with x86-64 builds on AMD processors.    The
following changes have been made between John 1.7.0.2 and 1.7.1:    * Bitslice
DES code for x86 with SSE2 has been added for better performance  at DES-based
crypt(3) hashes on Pentium 4 and SSE2-capable AMD processors.  * Assorted high-
level changes have been applied to improve performance  on current x86-64
processors.  * Minor source code cleanups.
