WhisperTransport v1.0 Released

by on Jan.16, 2010, under Uncategorized

Well, I promised a release soon… this might not be what everyone had in mind, but it’s worth getting this part out of the way now. This is the piece of software you’ll need in order to use the client (the transport).  As mentioned in the architecture post, it sits between Second Life and the client and translates messages so that the client can communicate with Second Life (and vice versa). I’m releasing this now as I’m happy with the functionality and stability of the software.

It’s released under GPLv3, which means all the source code is available to you in case you fancy developing your own clients for it! I’ve even included documentation on the request/response formats, I’ve provided a quick little HOWTO regarding encryption and the provided an overview of the architecture. If this still isn’t enough, I’ve even provided a very simple client (written in C#) that lets you connect to the transport and send raw XML requests to it!

I decided to go with SourceForge to host the project as they’ve served me very well in the past when working on Gentoox. You can take a look at the project here and grab the compiled release from here. For eager developers, you can obtain the source code from here.

Please do read the enclosed documentation (named README.txt) as it may answer any questions that you may have. If after reading this you still find yourself puzzled, then feel free to get in touch with me at whisper@shallax.com!

I don’t have any firm release date for the client as of yet! It is coming along nicely, though… I’m starting to use it as my main SL client now and I’m working out the bits that annoy me about it and adding some of the “I wish it did this” functionalities.
