I’ve still been looking at code, Qt networking is pretty nice. Still have been looking at Justin’s code and thinking more about the design of the whole thing. I want to adapt his service browsing code to be able to use the Apple dns_sd.h as well as the current jdns backend it uses. Also looked a good bit at his Ambrosia jabber server, because that’s what my design (it’s a proxy jabber server) will be working from. Also looked at the Jabber XMPP RFCs a bit.

Link local messaging has been getting more popular ever since Apple released their iChat instant messenger with rendezvous support. It is now supported in the Gaim, Adium, Fire, the Gizmo, and Trillian Pro instant messengers. The Psi Jabber client could also benefit from this feature as it would enable users to message each other without the need of a jabber server. Home and Small Office users will find such a feature particularly appealing. I have been impressed by the zeroconf networking technology since watching a Google tech-talk given by Dr. Stuart Cheshire from Apple.  I am inspired to work on Psi/Jabber since I am a big user of instant messaging and like the open nature of

Jabber. I have been using Jabber for a few years now. The networking society in my college (which I am an officer of) runs an external Jabber server (tcdnetsoc.org) which we connect to. I have also been using Google Talk which obviously uses the XMPP protocol.
