There's no user-friendly way to do that, unfortunately.  Maybe we should
introduce one.

For now, you can use timestamps from the "Cracked" lines in the .log
file.  Alternatively, you can extract the number of combinations of
{candidate password, target hash} tested so far from the .rec file - it
is currently being recorded as two 8-hex-digit lines representing a
64-bit integer.

Out of curiosity, is there any special reason for using this older version?
