I kept it quiet yesterday, but it was a big day for me. For the first time ever I was able to send and receive an #omemo encrypted message with my messenger #squawk. It's not really a big deal in general but it's a huge event for me.
Now to the sack of salt: the actual encryption is happening in #qxmpp library, and it does quite an exotic #omemo2 for now, with absolutely no support of more common types, so, as far as I know the only other messenger that would support this kind of encryption now is #kaidan (that's what I have tested with). Also, for now I don't aim at enabling #omemo for chats, because I don't even know how, but may be that's gonna be my next struggle.
My work is really far from over: there are buckets of stuff to be done yet. Like key management, trust management, fallbacks, encrypted message display, lots of refactoring, lots of testing, but, hopefully, in a couple of months or so I might be able to release it.
For the first time I see the light in the end of this tunnel.
