     Vidalia is a cross-platform graphical controller for the
     <a href="<page index>">Tor</a> software, built using the <a
     href="http://qt.nokia.com/">Qt</a> framework. Vidalia runs on most
     platforms supported by Qt 4.3 or later, including Microsoft Windows,
     Apple OS X, and Linux or other Unix variants using the X11 window
c83be90d
     system. It was originally written by Matt Edman, and is currently
     maintained by Tomás Touceda.

     Vidalia lets you start and stop Tor, see how much bandwidth you are
43810d68
     consuming, see how many circuits you currently have active, see where
     these circuits are connected on a global map, view messages from
     Tor about its progress and current state, and let you configure your
     Tor client, bridge, or relay with a simple interface.  Included in
     Vidalia is an extensive help system which helps you understand all of
     the options available to you.  All of these features are translated

     into a large number of languages.

     Most Tor project members use IRC to communicate. You can find Tomás
     in the <i>#vidalia</i> channel at OFTC under the nick chiiph. Please
     get in touch in order to see what everyone's working on, and to
     share what you've been working on or what you want to do. If you
     intend to join the team, it's expected that you stay around IRC,
     either in Vidalia's channel, or <i>#tor-dev</i>.
