I have great plans for Fire★ this year.
I love the desktop and I feel Fire★ is the most useful on a real
computer. However, I have an ambitious plan to have Fire★ run on a phone
OS. Since it is built with the great Qt user interface framework, I want
to create a QtQuick frontend to apps and Fire★ targeted towards phone
screens. It will be challenging to make P2P work on phones and this
might not be possible for all phones and networks.
Along with phone support I want to support the concept of trust
networks. These are networks that maintain identity of users and
everyone on the network trusts each other. This is so that Fire★ is more
useful in larger organizations where it isn't feasible to add contacts
for each person on each instance (a N^2 operation).
I will expand firegreet to not only signal but help a Fire★ instance
discover other people in a trusted network. However, Fire★'s P2P nature
won't be changed, all communication will still be P2P.
I invite anyone reading this to join me making these two things possible.
