Update to libotr 3.1

Reported by: boredzo Owned by: evands
Milestone: Adium 1.3 Component: OTR
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: libotr otr off-the-record encryption Cc:
Patch Status:

Description

From the release notes:

  • Removed "view secure session id" and "verify fingerprint" options from the OTR button menu. Added "authenticate buddy" option in its place. This new option allows you to authenticate your buddies by entering some secret that only the two of you know, rather than by using a long user-unfriendly sequence of hex characters. [The old "verify fingerprint" dialog is still available via an "Advanced..." button from the new "authenticate buddy" dialog.]

That fixes the biggest obstacle between our users and habitual use of OTREncryption.

This is a good thing to do, but out of scope for 1.2. Shifting to 1.3.

Chances of this being done in time for 1.3?

Update done; #9768 is the ticket for the new UI needed. The old fingerprint-based verification continues to work fine.

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed

(In [23282]) OTR.framework 3.1.0 and associated changes. Large messages are now automatically fragmented instead of failing. This also adds support for SMP, the Socialist Millionaire's Protocol, but does not implement the UI for it yet (so we continue to use fingerprints, which work as before, for contact verification). Fixes #2528. Fixes #7485.
