Further, since all of the messages are digitally signed, there is difficult-to-deny proof that you said what you did: not what we want for a supposedly private conversation!
You need this library in order to use the other OTR software on this page.[Note that some binary packages, particularly Windows, do not have a separate library package, but just include the library and toolkit in the packages below.] The current version is 4.1.1.README UPGRADING from version 3.2.x This is the Java version of the OTR library.This is for developers of Java applications that want to add support for OTR. It's still early days, but you can download java-otr version 0.1.0 (sig). Please use an IM client with native support for OTR.Versions 4.1.0 and earlier of libotr in 64-bit builds contain an integer overflow security flaw.This flaw could potentially be exploited by a remote attacker to cause a heap buffer overflow and subsequently for arbitrary code to be executed on the user's machine. Please upgrade to libotr version 4.1.1 immediately.
Users of libotr packages in Linux and *BSD distributions should see updated packages shortly.
This security release includes the following updates: This is the portable OTR Messaging Library, as well as the toolkit to help you forge messages.
This is a localhost proxy you can use with almost any AIM client in order to participate in Off-the-Record conversations.
The current version is 0.3.1, which means it's still a long way from done. Some things it's still missing: pidgin-otr tutorial from the Security-in-a-Box project Video OTR tutorial (by Niels) Adium, Pidgin & OTR (auf Deutsch, by Christian Franke) Miranda, Pidgin, Kopete & OTR (auf Deutsch, by Missi) Adium X with OTR OTR proxy on Mac OS X pidgin-otr on gentoo (from "X") gaim-otr on Debian unstable (from Adam Zimmerman) gaim-otr on Windows (from Adam Zimmerman) gaim-otr 3.0.0 on Ubuntu (from Adam Zimmerman).
Note that Ubuntu breezy has gaim-otr 2.0.2 in it, and all you should have to do is "apt-get install gaim-otr". The OTR functionality is separated into the Off-the-Record Messaging Library (libotr), which is an LGPL-licensed library that can be used to (hopefully) easily produce OTR plugins for other IM software, or for other applications entirely.
