Where do you download the text client for Windows? I booted up Windows the other day, went to the downloads section and couldn't find a link. I used SSH through PuTTY. Not all Windows user can understand PuTTY.
still use the familiar text based mode. I have to remind myself that
most people don't use Linux. I tell them I think there is a Window's client.
I use putty to connect to Uncensored via ssh in Windows. It's still a lovely experience, in spite of the OS.
Every time I've heard of a Citadel client for Windows, it's been mentioned along with CygWin.
Huh? Why is that so confusing?
You set up a session one time, and double-click on it forever more.
I'll grant that setting up that initial session is a tad confusing for someone who isn't used to working with weird software interfaces, but once it's set up, it's extremely easy to use.
Hmm... PuTTY could benefit in having a file format that records how to set up a particular session, such that double-clicking it starts PuTTY just the way you want it to run for connecting to Uncensored.
Fire off REGEDIT, and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/SimonTatham/PuTTY/Sessions.
Each session is saved as its own registry key named with the session's title.
You can save specific sessions, or all of them, by right-clicking on the appropriate registry key and selecting Export. Then, just copy the newly created registry file over to the destination machine, fire up REGEDIT once more, and File -> Import.
Certainly not a very user-friendly method, but once a session is created and exported as a *.reg file, all an end-user would have to do is install PuTTY and then double-click the *.reg file.

maby a text interface in a browser (kinda like it does now with the text client, but display in a browser). Might be kinda tough as da web is not session based.

putty agent is here to start saved sessions smart for dumb users.
you would need a decent terminal app to wrap a native wintendo client anyways...
For the vast majority of computer users, though, if it isn't on the web it basically doesn't exist.
In the mobile space it might be another story. People are accustomed to downloading "apps" and using them for specific tasks.
most of the issues still detected are in the textclient or related to it.
so if somebody wants to have a look at it?
Ok, we now have the 'textclient' directory, containing only the source of the textclient.
its dependencies are libcitadel(zlib, iconv) and openssl
if somebody wants to work on creating windows binaries, this should be more easy now, without all the citserver interference.
it should be possible using mingw.org.
