The Off-the-Record (OTR) Messaging proxy is a multi- platform proxy that allows you to have private conversations using the AIM client of your choice. It provides encryption, which prevents someone who intercepts your instant messages from reading them, authentication, which ensures that the correspondent is who you think it is, and perfect forward secrecy, which ensures that no previous conversation is compromised if you lose control of your private keys.

Release Notes: Support for OTR protocol version 2 was added. It will still interoperate with version 1 clients, though with a warning to the user. Non-ASCII charsets are handled properly.
Release Notes: This release works around a bug in Trillian that sometimes prevented it from connecting to the AIM/ICQ network through otrproxy. New per-buddy configuration is available by double-clicking a buddy's name in the main OTR window. Popups on Win32 now actually show up in front of other windows.
