There is a bug in 0.2.2 regarding Null-bytes in imported passwords that causes Pyrit’s blobspace to get corrupted. Fixing this bug requires a slight change in the binary format of the blobspace. This means that databases handled by current svn-versions and upwards will not be compatible with those created by 0.2.2.
On the other hand we got more performance improvements e.g. by taking advantage of pyco if available. Importing 10.000.000 passwords takes just 30 seconds on my MacBook now – down from 137 seconds in 0.2.1…
Note that Pyrit’s current svn-versions require nvcc from CUDA 2.2 which is not yet publicly available. Please also note that Pyrit on MacOS now requires CUDA 2.1 (download here) as we no longer circumenvent the CU_CTX_SCHED_YIELD-bug that was present in 2.0-beta.
