A graphical SILC client.

Silky is an easy-to-use graphical SILC client. The aim of this project is to create a simple and easy to use graphical, os-independent SILC client. Silky contains, or will eventually contain, all necessary features of a SILC client. The user interface will be kept as simple and clean as possible. SILC is a protocol which provides secure conferencing services in the Internet over insecure channel. The biggest similarity between SILC and IRC is that they both provide conferencing services and that SILC has almost same commands as IRC. However, internally they are very different.
