<h5 class="page-header">Archangel: an RGTP client for Mozilla</h5>

<p><big>3 Feb 2003: <strong>Archangel 0.2.0 released.</strong></big>  Head over to <a href="/installation.html">the installation page</a> to
see how to get hold of a copy.</p>

<p>Archangel lets you browse <acronym title="Reverse Gossip Transfer Protocol">RGTP</acronym> bulletin boards (such as <a href="http://www.groggs.group.cam.ac.uk/groggs/"><acronym title="General Purpose Reverse-Ordered Gossip Gathering System">GROGGS</acronym></a> at Cambridge University) from within Mozilla. The protocol Archangel uses is:
<ul>
<li><b>secure</b>: users are cryptographically identified.</li>
<li><b>centralised</b>: all discussion is held on one server under the control of nominated editors.</li>
<li><b>linear</b>: the item format helps regulate thread drift.</li>
<li><b>mature</b>: it has been in regular use for over <a href="http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=48620h%246su%40lyra.csx.cam.ac.uk">five years</a>.</li>
</ul></p>

<p>There are <a href="/other-clients.html">several other RGTP clients</a> available, for many platforms, and <a href="http://rgtp.thurman.org.uk/spurge/">a free RGTP server</a> is under development.</p>
