I just got relayers working! We can now successfully send an anonymized, encrypted download over any number of intermediate connections. The code’s still not quite ready for the alpha release (not that you can’t play with it if you want), but we’re getting very close.

Anyway, it’s 4 am. Sleep now, More updates later.

So far all of the posts have shown scary command-line shots. Well, now I can show that Anomos does use the GUI properly as well!

Anomos, with GUI!

Anomos, with GUI!

How about that!

The GUI can only run one instance at a time, hence the seeder still being command line, but that’s nothing to worry about right now. Soon we’ll have the resources for a dedicated test platform so we won’t have to fiddle around trying to get multiple clients and trackers all on the same box.

Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I’ll try to start provide regular updates about our progress from now on. We’ve finished implementing Neighbor initializations, and have gotten encrypted downloads to work between directly connected peers.

These downloads aren’t anonymous yet, but all the infrastructure for making them so is there. I expect to get relay nodes working sometime later this week, and after that Rich and I will likely be starting some small scale tests over the internet.

We’ve also added a bit of content to the wiki, like the protocol specification, but there’s still a lot to be done there.

As always, feel free to contact us if you’re interested in getting involved.
