NIST is holding a competition to submit hashes that will replace SHA

Schneier, Jon Callas, et al have proposed a totally new hash 
function, SKEIN

Ron Rivest proposed an MD6

details are here:

the good news :-)

selection of a NIST winner is expected to take 4 years,
open-pgp and gnupg 
can hold off on plans to implement Whirpool,
keep things as they are for now,

and see who the winner is,
and then take some more time for it to get vetted in the wild
