Summary0005206: *2john utilities no longer available

With the latest kali upgrade, all *2john tools (zip2john, keepass2john, etc.) have been replaced with a symlink to the john binary and the original tools can no longer be used.

Expected behavior:
root@kali:~# ./keepass2john
Usage: %s [-i <inline threshold>] [-k <keyfile>] <.kdbx database(s)>
Default threshold is 1024 bytes (files smaller than that will be inlined)

Actual behavior:
root@kali:~# ./keepass2john
[usage of john]

zip2john, keepass2john, etc. were already symlinks to the john binary.

After checking keepass2john and some other commands are now standalone programs and should be installed accordingly.
But zip2john must be a symlink to john binary. And it should work properly with the current version.

zip2john indeed does work with the current version, I somehow missed that when I was checking the tools - sorry, my bad.
