NETTLESSH PROJECT OVERVIEWNettleSSH is a development from the original Nettle source base. Taking all the features of Nettle and building up on it, with the aim to provide integrated client capable of being extended to other protocols than those it originally took. NettleSSH is not part of the main Nettle development and should be viewed as a seperate component from the main Nettle application.
Because NettleSSH is based on the common Nettle core, fixes and improvements within the main application are carried through to the NettleSSH development work. In addition to the standard Nettle features, NettleSSH supports the following significant changes :
DEVELOPMENTNettleSSH is being developed as a private project by Justin Fletcher, feeding back fixes, features and suggestions to the main Nettle project. The main Nettle developers have been very helpful in providing feedback on NettleSSH to bring it to its current stage. Because NettleSSH is purely an experimental project to investigate how protocol abstraction and enhancement can be implemented, this is not part of the main Nettle project. Concurrent developments are by the core Nettle team is progressing toward a better structured version of Nettle.
I (Justin) don't work with any other compiler but the Norcroft compiler, and use TCPIPLibs solely for development purposes. As a consequence, NettleSSH has only been tested with this combination. The changes from UnixLib build to function with TCPIPLibs was minimal, so it is expected that anyone wishing to compile with UnixLib and GCC will find no problems. Feedback on such would would be appreciated.
RELEASESBecause of the experimental (and sporadic!) development of NettleSSH, release information is somewhat thin on the ground. However, the salient details are :
