Anyone else using YUM extension? $hasFunc question

I’m testing the Yii User Management extension. It claims to support hash and salt. Except I can only seem to use md5.

I try using SHA1 but that just puts empty fields in the user table. Switching back to md5 allows registration to work and save info to table - but I want to use SHA1 at least since md5 is losing its robustness.

The extension updates are dead for over a year I believe, but I’m wondering if anyone else is using this and fixed it?
