Coracle v0.4.0: Private Groups

Coracle is a web client for the Nostr protocol focused on pushing the boundaries of what's unique about nostr, including relay selection and management, web-of-trust based moderation and content recommendations, and privacy protection.

Coracle v0.4.0: Private Groups
  • "New Coracle Release: 0.4.0. This is the big one — Coracle now has private groups," announced @hodlbod.
"This means you can now send almost any nostr event over an encrypted channel to the rest of the group's members. This is substantially different from group chats, in that it uses rotating shared keys to provide weak forward secrecy, better scaling, and dynamic member access."
  • "A ton of work went into this release — many months of iterating on groups, as well as several new and refined features. You'll also notice that Coracle has a new look — I've started work on a new design created by @dtonon."
