The status is that the SILC Toolkit 1.1 has been tested on emulator, but
not on device as I didn't have any S60 devices at the time I was doing the
support for it. I created a simple SILC client for Symbian which connects
to SILC network, joins a channel and sends message to the channel. This
test naturally tested SILC protocol specific parts and also socket stream
API, network routines, SILC scheduler and threads.
For Symbian specific issues in the Toolkit see:
You should be aware of the Toolkit split that is currently happening
(version 1.2). The SILC Toolkit, which contains the protocol libraries,
runtime and crypto library and many other libraries is going to splitted
in three parts: SILC Runtime Toolkit, SILC Crypto Toolkit and the old SILC
Toolkit containing the protocol specific parts.
All of these Toolkits are going to work on Unix/Linux, Windows and Symbian
OS. Beta version of the new Runtime Toolkit should come out this month,
maybe next week already. The Runtime Toolkit is a generic runtime, not
directly related to SILC protocol in anyway. However, all SILC software
is going to depend on it.
