One more question about the results at Crypto...

Biham & Chen can find collisions in a reduced round version of SHA-1,
but am I correct in saying that no one has found collisions in the
full SHA-1 at this point?

And would anyone like to take a crack at explaining the work by Wang,
Feng, Lai and Yu in simpler terms for those of us who find the extant
documentation incomprehensible?
