hinto-janai's monero-vanity gets ~12x speed boost with v0.5.0 release

hinto-janai1 has released monero-vanity2 version 0.5.03 with an improved key generation speed of 72 million keys/second that allows the CPU-only tool to find custom (vanity) XMR addresses ~12x faster:

12x speed increase (5.8 mil/sec -> 72 mil/sec)

The software is now faster than both vanity-monero4 (400k/sec) and vanity-xmr-cuda5 (8.1 million/sec).

Consult the README.md6 file in the project’s code repository for speed estimates, CLI/GUI usage and build instructions.

The sources, binaries, SHA256SUM and .asc files can be found on the Github release page3. Always verify before using.

Note that monero-vanity is still a work in progress and the code was not audited. Use with substantial amounts of money at your own risk.
