What is it?

gaHowl is the integration of the Zeroconf protocol into gaim. Zeroconf is commonly known as "Rendezvous". With this protocol addin, we hope that Windows, GNU/Linux, BSD, and OS X users can communicate in a room using gaim without having to be connected through the internet.

What's Howl?

Howl is an implementation of the Zeroconf standard/protocol. Howl runs on all of the platforms we listed above, so all that really needs to happen is the merging of the lib into gaim. Logo
