What is Gobby?
Gobby is a free collaborative editor supporting multiple documents in one session and a multi-user chat. It runs on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and other Unix-like platforms.
It uses GTK+ 2.6 as its windowing toolkit and thus integrates nicely into the GNOME desktop environment.
2007-06-16: Gobby 0.4.4 released
2007-03-19: Sobby on Win32
There is a native Win32 build of sobby at http://releases.0x539.de/sobby-win32. There are no special Windows-specific features, but it runs. You will need glibmm, libxml++ (from the gtkmm installer), obby and net6 DLLs (from the Gobby installer or the gobby-win32 repos). There has been no extensive testing on the Win32 platform, so consider this as experimental.
2007-03-08: Stable release 0.4.2
Another stable release of our products is available. These contain fixes with non-present IPv6, some UI enhancements in gobby and the possibility to load and store single documents instead of the whole session in sobby. See the release announcement for details.
2007-03-07: Public SVN Repositories and Spam filtering
The mailing lists are working again under the same addresses as before, and so does public access to our SVN repository, via svn://svn.0x539.de/obby. We upgraded the trac spam filter to the latest version and hope that it works more reliable then before, although we are still not really happy with it since we had to disable the blacklist IP filter for it recognized our own IPs as blacklisted. However, as a proof that editing entries at least works again I am writing this as an unauthorized user.

We use this site not only to present Gobby, but also to coordinate the further development of it and the core libraries it depends on, namely net6 and obby.
obby is the foundation of Gobby, providing the whole framework to synchronise changes within a text document to other participants of a session. New clients and plugins for existing applications could be written using it. It is written in C++ and C wrappers have yet to be created.
net6 is an IP client/server library providing a flexible framework to send packets to each other using C++. It supports TCP and UDP, IPv4 and IPv6 and is thus a valuable base for network development.
