LanChat version 1.0 released!
Version 1.0 of the application has now been released!
Messages can be sent and received and the whole thing is quite stable.
If you take a look at the source code, note the broadCastMode variable.
Change it to false and add a list of ip addresses to contacts.txt. The application no longer relies on broadcasting and instead sends a message to each ip in the list itself.
At the moment i have only packaged the application for windows. I hope to add support for other platforms sometime in the near future.
