The website books and patches have yet to be updated. This patch can be found 

You should be aware that I haven't made blowfish patches for Shadow-utils and 
Sysvinit yet (the Sysvinit patch was submitted to this list about a month 
ago). I'm trying to make a Shadow-utils, and Sysvinit, patch that can be 
accepted upstream. The Glibc patch needs a bunch of work to get added to 
Glibc, mainly to deal with the Glibc build system.

There is also a question of whether it's possible to use libcrypto, from 
openssl, with Shadow-utils. I think this would be preferred because it would 
add dozens of algorithms (sha512, etc), not just blowfish.
