[tor-talk] New TorStatus protocol, website, and Android app

Hash: SHA1

Hi everyone,

you probably all know the TorStatus website [0] that lets you search
the current list of Tor relays.  And maybe some of you noticed last
year's HFOSS project to rewrite TorStatus in Python/Django [1].
Unfortunately, both projects suffer from lack of maintenance.  It's
just hard to find someone who both understands the Tor directory
protocol and who is good at writing websites.

In the past few months, we have been working on a new TorStatus
protocol, website, and Android app.  The idea is that all the Tor
descriptor parsing can happen on a server that provides status
information to clients.  The clients don't have to worry about Tor
directory protocol details.  That also makes it much easier to write
and maintain new TorStatus-like applications and websites.

Here's where you can learn more about...

- - the new TorStatus website: http://hellais.github.com/TorStatus/

- - the Android app: http://kloesing.github.com/Onionoo/moniono.html

- - the server and protocol: http://kloesing.github.com/Onionoo/

This code is all in beta state and only lightly tested.  Any feedback
or help are much appreciated.  And if you have ideas for developing
your own client, please let us know.

All the best,
Jens, Arturo, Karsten
