@necrosis yay, that's great! (Although I think I'm too late to download whatever you were sharing)

@tcarioscio I agree, encrypted email is a huge pain for most people. ProtonMail is a fine choice for people with small threat models

I just made a second dev release for OnionShare 1.1. Anyone want to test it out and let me know if you find any issues?


@necrosis hey Robin, I just made a new dev release, 1.1.dev2, which I believe should fix this problem! Can you test it for me?


@mig5 thank you! Those were great PRs, I just merged them

@necrosis I've used it for sending than 1GB before, there shouldn't be any size limit actually.

What was your 1GB of test data? OnionShare zips up the files before sending, so I imaging if you tried sending 1gb full of zeroes, that might compress pretty well :)

@necrosis ah, you ran into the issue I had when I tried running it on macOS 10.9: github.com/micahflee/onionshar

What version of macOS are you running? I think it has to do with how I'm bundling the Tor binary...

And this is very helpful. When I fix this issue I can make another dev release so you can test it then if you want.

I've been working on a new version of OnionShare with some cool new features. Would anyone like to test it out, let me know what you think and if you find bugs before I release it?

You can download OnionShare 1.1.dev1 here: github.com/micahflee/onionshar

The major features it includes a bundled Tor binary (no more needing to open Tor Browser in the background) and it alerts you when updates are available.

@foozmeat yeah. Quanta Magazine has the best science journalism I've ever read. It's in very clear, readable English, and most of the time I'm not hopelessly lost, but it doesn't dumb things down.

And they also often cover really fun topics in mathematics and computer science, along with physics, biology, and chemistry.
