fluid_nexus 0.3.1

PyQt4 application that enables one to share messages and data independent of centralized data networks
fluid_nexus has been testing on Ubuntu Maverick with python 2.6.6 and requires the following python modules: pyqt4, pybonjour, sqlalchemy, textile, pybluez, oauth2, protobuf (version 2.3.0 or higher).

Specific network modality notes:

Bluetooth:

 Should run without modification on Windows if pybluez is installed, but this hasn't been tested
 Will not run on OS X due to lack of pybluez; the networking code will have to be ported to lightblue

Zeroconf:

- Should run without modification on Windows if pybonjour is installed, along with the Bonjour library from Apple; this has not been tested
- Should run without modification on OS X if pybonjour is installed; this has not been tested
- Linux will require the installation of a avahi-bonjour compatability library; on ubuntu this is libavahi-compat-libdnssd1.

To run, type "fluid_nexus"; for help, type "fluid_nexus --help".

SECURITY NOTE

Data is stored unencrypted in a local sqlite database. It is best that you take care of encryption yourself, such as by using ecryptfs home directories or LUKS encrypted devices on Linux.

Data is sent over bluetooth without any transport layer encryption. This is something we plan on implementing in the future.

Data is sent over link-local wifi using zeroconf for service discovery without any transport layer encryption. This is something we plan on implementing in the future.
