I am putting this in general IT because I am not ready to add this version of pyrit to the .iso. ebfe has released a stable 2.3 and I have added that to the repository for now.
Pyrit has some exciting new features in svn. there is no longer any need for cowpatty. Pyrit can crack the hash's on its own. To check out this new feature you will need to compile pyrit and cpyrit your self from svn source.
