A new snapshot of the public source was released on Saturday, including RC5-72 
support (meant for coders only and not general usage, of course.) The URL is 
http://http.distributed.net/pub/dcti/source/pub-20020928.tgz. If you have 
problems interfacing your core to the public source, contact me at acidblood 
.at. distributed .dot. net and I will give you a hand.
