This roadmap shows the ideas and hopes of Hybrid Share contributors for the near future.

Hybrid Share History In Short

The Idea of this Application is dated 2004. I was on a LiveCD and my friend want to send me a large number of files. But There was a Problem, How to do this simple operation? The Mail size was not enought and he hasn't a WEB or FTP Server, so we haven't found a solution. The day after I started to write a simple C/Gtk to Share Files. The Project grows up and C is not quickly portable, so I've decided to rewrite it with Mono C#. The First 0.x version is Released under the name of NyFolder at Berlios, then the Project was moved to SourceForge and has take the Hybrid Share name.

The Future of Hybrid Share

In The Near future, I want bringing Hybrid Share at the same level of the IM clients, so with a complete and simple Buddies and Accounts Managment. The Second Step is add a "Blackboard" system, where you and your friends could manipulate the same file or see (and modify) the same image. Then I want add support for the RSA communications and other security systems... But the Development shouldn't stop here. I'm always wait your suggestions.
