The current upstream release is 1.9.0.  Please bump.

And it seems we probably need the -jumbo branch which support other file formats via plugins. Looks there is even pkcs12 plugin for john.

An einfo() message pointing to would be helpful too.

While at it, speaks of:

Revision 1.111: download - view: text, markup, annotated - select for diffs
Sat Mar 23 12:15:28 2019 UTC (9 months, 1 week ago) by solar
Branches: MAIN
Diff to: previous 1.110: preferred, colored
Changes since revision 1.110: +3 -3 lines
- Added runtime detection of AVX2 and AVX-512, loosely based on work by magnum
in jumbo (thanks!)
- Added linux-x86-avx512 and linux-x86-avx2 make targets (32-bit, mostly for
testing in case the 32-bit AVX2 code is later needed e.g. for a Win32 build).

Revision 1.110: download - view: text, markup, annotated - select for diffs
Fri Mar 22 11:28:58 2019 UTC (9 months, 1 week ago) by solar
Branches: MAIN
Diff to: previous 1.109: preferred, colored
Changes since revision 1.109: +5 -3 lines
- Added linux-x86-64-avx512 and linux-x86-64-avx2 make targets, which use
respectively AVX-512 and AVX2 for bitslice DES.
- Dropped use of 256-bit AVX (the original "floating point" one) in 32-bit
builds, dropped compile-time support for other weird bitslice DES vector types
(these were for experiments only and didn't provide performance improvement on
almost any real hardware).

I think the USE flags will need adjustments. At the moment I have:

[ebuild   R    ] app-crypt/johntheripper-1.8.0::gentoo  USE="openmp -custom-cflags" CPU_FLAGS_X86="avx sse2 (-mmx) -xop" 0 KiB
Comment 3 Martin Mokrejš 2019-12-31 16:38:12 UTC
The following explains that only the highest CPU_FLAGS_X86 value should be passed to configure:
