"The Guardian Project’s award-winning open-source app “Gibberbot” for
Android, has been rebranded to “ChatSecure” for its version 12 release,
unifying the branding with the iPhone and iPad apps, while offering
major updates in security from the device through the network."

Announcement is online at:
https://guardianproject.info/2013/10/24/chatsecure-v12-provides-comprehensive-security-and-a-whole-new-look/

Highlights for the folks here... some interesting new features,
addressing the types of threats, risks, and needs for trainers and
support organizations thar are part of this list.

- - Ability to sync desktop OTR keys and verified fingerprints from
Pidgin, Adium, Jitsi etc to Android using new KeySync utility

- - Supporting for creating "burner" accounts directly from the app,
completely over Tor on services like Dukgo.com or Jabber.ccc.de

- - Full local data encryption and app locking, end-to-end message
encryption, and hardened TLS/SSL connections

- - Ability to work without the internet or blocked hosts, using
Bonjour/LAN chat, on a mesh, wifi "phone tether" network, or just by
plugging in a cheap wifi box in the middle of nowhere

- - Encrypted file sharing tunneled inside the OTR encryption session

- - A "Panic" button for quick app kill, uninstall and wipe of local
encrypted database

... and some solid steps forward on usability, look and feel and
overall friendliness, including more emoji smileys than you could ever
want or need.

If you want to know more, we'll be hosting open office hours this
Friday via IRC chat, OStel calls, and Google Hangouts.

Best,
 Nathan and the Guardian Project crew
