    They're starting to get into much more complex passwords now.  The lists I've seen on the latest versions aren't limiting themselves to common and weak passwords.

    Some of the lists include very random passwords that I'm guessing are designed to resolve to different MD5 password hashes rather than matching the passwords themselves.  At this rate, passwords are going to have to be stored in multiple hash formats to keep them safe.
