I really like the new version. Do you have a features roadmap or a TODO file of what you have planned or would like to add to the plugin?
I have to agree with hiware.
I really like this version!
it seems to be more stable (less encryption errors), and I like the new gui/enable disable.
Thanks, I'm glad you like it.
At this point I really don't have enough time to do much more than maintenance. Several things I would like to add are mostly in the Feature Requests list. Off the top of my head:
1) Password-based encryption of private keys. This wouldn't be too hard to implement, actually... it is mostly a matter of getting the UI right.
2) Split the plugin into Gaim/GTK frontend plugin and a library backend, that could be used with other IM clients. This would be a fair amount of work, but would be a very good thing, I think.
3) Protocol changes: Move to using ECC-DH/MQV to strengthen the encryption, decrease key sizes and overhead, and add forward secrecy. Even better (and harder), add multi-party key agreement to do chat-room encryption in a sensible way.
Unfortunately, this is more of a wish list than a TODO at this point, just owing to lack of time.
