    <p>
    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
    system.
    </p>
    <p>
    Vidalia lets you start and stop Tor, see how much bandwidth you are
    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. Vidalia does not work alone, it
    requires Tor to be useful. (Tor is not included in the downloads on
    this page.)
    </p>

    <a id="Downloads"></a>
    <h3><a class="anchor" href="#Downloads">Downloads</a></h3>

    Most Windows and Mac OS X users should simply download Vidalia as part
    of a <a href="<page download/download>">Tor software bundle</a>. If
    you want to upgrade the Vidalia software included in a Tor bundle
    you currently have installed, you can use one of the installer

    Vidalia's source code lives now in a Git repository under https://gitweb.torproject.org/vidalia. 
    The clone URL is git://git.torproject.org/vidalia. You should get to know how Vidalia
    works internally in order to work with it. To do this you should know C++
    and Qt.

    Every project member inside Tor mostly uses IRC to communicate. Vidalia is
    being developed currently by Matt Edman and Tomas Touceda. You can find
    them in #vidalia channel at OFTC under the nicks edmanm and chiiph,
    repectively. You should get in touch in order to see what's everyone 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 you stay around IRC, either in Vidalia's
    channel, or #tor-dev.
