Yabasta 1.0 Alpha 2 Released

10/28/2012 Uncategorized

Work has continued this week with the the preparation of the forthcoming cryptographic implementation. In particular, I want to take this opportunity to thank Arlo Breault for agreeing to change the license of his JavaScript OTR library, allowing it to be incorporated into Yabasta Core.

Colours, shapes, and fonts has been updated on Yabasta.com to make it look a little bit prettier. I’m not a designer, but it’s something for the time-being.

Also, Frederik Strömberg has designed a Yabasta logotype:

The idea was to let Yabasta be symbolized by a sun, since Yabasta is the opposite of cloud computing in many regards. As an initial typographic suggestion, we went with the Cantarell font with a simple Inkscape stroke border.

Just like with the software, the graphics are drafts, and are subject to change in future iterations of Yabasta. One problem with the sun logo is that it’s a little complex, and doesn’t look very good when it’s scaled down to a small icon (such as a smartphone application launch icon, or a “favicon” image).

Anyway… That’s it for this week. As always, suggestions or contributions are welcome.
