- upgraded underlying SSH library
- added additional test fixtures and a new server connection test case
- updated vagrant network configs to use bridged networking

I also updated the OSX version of the desktop shell. If you downloaded the previous version please download and install the new one. The auto-updater configuration was missing from the previous dmg file.

First Release & New Website

The very first release of the application is ready for download! It runs on OSX and Windows. The last few weeks have been filled with interesting experiences learning how to package and create installers for mac and windows apps. I automated the whole process with Grunt tasks so its super easy to repeat in the future.

Progress Recap

- created a shell script to automate all the steps in the server side install process
- working cross platform desktop client using the Chromium Embedded Framework
- new security and authentication strategy for the client and server components
