> I recently ported the MurmurHash (http://murmurhash.googlepages.com/) to Java, and according
to my tests it's roughly 5 times faster than the current version of JenkinsHash in the trunk/
. According to the author (and other analysts at comp.sci.crypt) this hash has an excellent
avalanche behavior, and low collision rate. I propose to either replace the JenkinsHash or
add this hash as an option to be used in BloomFilter-s and related classes.
> If your opinion is positive, I'll prepare a patch. The Java implementation of the hash
can be found here: http://www.getopt.org/murmur/MurmurHash.java
