Google have almost been too patient about retiring this broken old piece of 90s tech. The article describes SHA-2 as "next-gen," but it was released in 2001. It's ancient, it's unbelievable that anyone was wanting to hold on to something even more ancient in 2016.

SHA-3 is the truly next-gen algorithm, and it was released in 2015. Companies should be actively working on adding support for that, so we don't run into the same issue in 5-10 years when SHA-2 might need to be retired.
