Mixminion Message Sender 2

Working in Tcl/Tk 8.4.13 http://www.tcl.tk
with Visual Tcl http://vctl.sourceforge.net
Both are available in Windows versions which makes this version of MMS cross-platform.

Like the win32 version, this one is open-source under the terms of the Gnu General Public License Version 2, June 1991

Right now, development is primarily aimed at duplicating all of the functionality of the windows version. I'm making progress, in that it works, but things like first and last hop selection are not in yet and none of the SURB functions are in.

It's also not reading a config file on startup yet, and so has no settings that can be saved between runs. On the other hand, there are now four choices for mail2news gateway, unfortunately the formatting specific to each one must be done manually on the Newsgroups: line

There's another item I haven't gotten yet called freewrap (also a sourceforge project) that is used to create stand-alone executables from Tcl/Tk code... including windows executables as well.

Here's the current Tcl/Tk source mms2.rar Ideas, suggestions and code are welcome.

(computed using functions in GPGShell)

Here's a screenshot of what I've got so far:

I haven't gotten an actual changelog started yet (lazy of me I know, I need to start one before I do anything else.), but here's the current state of the 'todo' list:
