Status reports - where are you with your work?

Status reports - where are you with your work?

Hey all,

I thought it'd be fun to hear status updates on people's projects. That'll
give everyone a chance to hear again about projects they might not know
about or had lost track of.

Just a quick breakdown: what's the project, what's the latest milestone,
what's in development now, and what are you excited about?

ZeroTier One - https://www.zerotier.com/

Status: beta, pretty stable though one big change is still coming, binary 
releases with auto-update in the wild and working well.

Latest milestone: bug fixes, TCP tunneling for use behind tough firewalls.

In development: new web site that is less ugly & easier to use, support 
for bridging to physical Ethernet networks for seamless 
physical-to-virtual Ethernet extension (think "virtual wire from physical 
switch to virtual switch in P2P-space"). Also will start charging for 
managed, closed networks as a revenue model soon. (Mostly business users 
using it as VPN alternative.)

Excited about: tons and tons of encouraging feedback from lots of people, 
about a hundred regular users so far including a few businesses using it 
"for real," no major bugs reported for over a month, so far auto-update 
system is secure and works flawlessly.

Glad to hear things are going well, Adam! I have a pretty good usecase for
ZeroTier that I'll be checking out soon, so I'm looking forward to that.
I'll be sure to let you know how it goes.

Who's next?

What's the project?

Briar is a messaging app designed for activists, journalists, and
anyone else who needs a safe, easy and robust way to communicate.
Unlike traditional messaging tools such as email or Twitter, Briar
doesn't rely on a central server - messages are synchronized directly
between the users' devices. If the Internet's down, Briar can sync via
Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, keeping the information flowing in a crisis. If
the Internet's up, Briar can sync via the Tor network. Either way it
protects users and their relationships from surveillance.

https://briarproject.org
http://code.briarproject.org

What's in development now?

Short term: Today I worked on two features requested by focus group
testers: a wider choice of notification sounds, and showing which
contacts subscribe to a forum.

Medium term: Public beta testing of our Android app, starting work on
the desktop UI.

Long term: Use Briar's data synchronization capabilities to support
secure, distributed applications including blogging, crisis mapping
and collaborative document editing.

What are you excited about?

The project is one of 54 semi-finalists in the Knight News Challenge.

arkOS -- https://arkos.io

Status: alpha, the core and first use-cases are becoming stable, and now
that we're moving into beta, radical changes in design/UX will vastly
improve the experience.

Latest milestone: 0.5.x presents the first Mailserver plugin, for
automatically setting up and managing a very basic mail server on any
device, as well as creating/using encrypted filesystems in a flash and
much more.

In development: our first beta version 0.6 with a radical new redesign
and improved stability, support for ARMv7 boards (first of which being
Cubietruck and Beaglebone Black), new Installer/client for connected
machines, value-added services and much much more.

Excited about: hiring two new contributors to be directors on the
project, reincorporating as a non-profit, and working on new ideas to
create a truly innovative self-hosting experience that will blow
everyone's socks off :)
