Hi everybody,

I've posted information about CurveCP at http://curvecp.org; and today's
release of NaCl includes command-line curvecpclient and curvecpserver
tools. There are many reasons that this curvecpclient+curvecpserver
software isn't ready for users yet---among other things,

   * the software hasn't gone through anywhere near my usual levels of
     testing and security review;
   * the software prioritizes simplicity over efficiency in several
     ways, missing some of the speed that CurveCP can provide; and
   * the software handles only CurveCP, without HTTPCurve, SMTPCurve,

---but if you're a programmer interested in CurveCP then I think this
software is a reasonable starting point for experimentation and further
