Quoting from the project's sourceforge page:

Fling is a new suite of internet protocols that perform the function of DNS, TCP, and UDP in a manner that's both untraceable and untappable. Fling protects clients from servers, servers from clients, and both from an eavesdropper in-between. The result is that anyone can serve or retrieve any data, without fear of censure.

Fling has not released any files yet, it is in the "one developer; prototype, redesign, and first build" stage.

In essence, Fling is an "onion-skin routing" system, plus a rootless name-server system that allows lookup of "route balls" by human-readable hierarchical machine name.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
