Firestr (Pronounced Fire Star) 0.3
===================================================================

Firestr in short, is a simple distributed, decentralized communication 
and computation platform.

You don't send a message to someone, you send software, which 
can have rich content. All programs are wired up together automatically
providing distributed communication, either through text, images, videos, 
or games.

The source code to all applications is available immediately to 
instantly clone and modify. 

===================================================================
WARNING
===================================================================

The software is in development. The security of the software has
not been audited so use AT YOUR OWN RISK.

If you are a security expert, please contribute.

===================================================================
Organization
===================================================================

This is the reference implementation of the protocol. It uses QT for
the GUI and a custom message back-end. Currently the applications
are written in Lua, but other bindings will be provided in the future. 

The main directory is src. Each subdirectory is a library and
the main application is in src/firestr

The project uses CMake as the meta-build configuration.
