pts/john-the-ripper-1.7.2   [View Source]   Mon, 10 Feb 2020 11:53:21 GMT
pts-core now handles K to numeric conversion so drop this faulty result-definition handling for certain cases of dynamic K.

pts/john-the-ripper-1.7.1   [View Source]   Sat, 08 Feb 2020 10:14:09 GMT
Fix for MD5 test run (JtR appending K to result, update parser) and Cygwin fix for Windows.

pts/john-the-ripper-1.7.0   [View Source]   Fri, 21 Jun 2019 19:56:15 GMT
Update against upstream JtR 1.9.0-jumbo-1.

Does It Scale Well With Increasing Cores?

Yes, based on the automated analysis of the collected public benchmark data, this test / test settings does generally scale well with increasing CPU core counts. Data based on publicly available results for this test / test settings, separated by vendor, result divided by the reference CPU clock speed, grouped by matching physical CPU core count, and normalized against the smallest core count tested from each vendor for each CPU having a sufficient number of test samples and statistically significant data.
