Subject: Custom Windows build - What happened to zip2john?


I was having issues with earlier builds and getting a hash of a ZIP file 
read properly (according to zip2john at the time, it was a pkzip2 
format). I've downloaded the latest Windows build from the wiki, John 
the Ripper v1.8.0.9-jumbo-1-bleeding (Bleeding version on 2017-03-06). 
Something that's new to me is that the zip2john executable seems to have 
been replaced with a different file. The text initially reads "symlink" 
with some non-text characters following. I'm assuming this is a linux 
symlink file, which neither Windows nor I know how to interpret.

I'm not having much luck searching GitHub for an explanation of this 
change. Can anyone offer any tips on how I'm supposed to proceed with 
cracking a zip file at this point?
