During this year's Google Summer of Code, Anmol will implement optional real-time texting in Dino. Real-time text means that text is transmitted and displayed to the receiver while it is being typed. Anmol will write about his progress here: https://wolfieanmol.github.io/gsoc-blog/ #Dino #XMPP #GSoC

Depending on what you include in the goal of enabling e2ee by default, it's either far less than 3 months of work or requires deep understanding of crypto which you can hardly expect from most students.
