(sorry for cross-postings)

The first release of Cerebro is out!

Cerebro basically offers scalable presence information and a simple 
collaboration API. Features currently include:

- presence information (including distance and route) for all other 
users in the network
- dynamic rate of updates based on density of neighborhood: No more than 
1 update every 5 seconds (on average) guaranteed.
- mesh network extended to regular 802.11b/g devices
- extensible user profile including nickname, colors, keys, IP addreses, 
picture of arbitrary size, status message etc
- file sharing using an efficient multicast mechanism
- simple collaboration mechanism through 'share', 'join', 'leave' functions
- simple programming API based on dbus (see examples)
