Ferret is a java-based implementation of Ferret Gaming Protocol, an in-development TCP-based network protocol that is aimed at supplanting contemporary bloated and buggy online gaming applications.
The goal of Ferret is to be agile, slim, and playful - hence the name, Ferret. When completed, Ferret will provide what is essentially a classical chat interface, with an extensible framework of additional utilities, such as dice rolling, file sharing, and a "battlemat" supporting icons, maps, a "Fog of War", and free-hand drawing.
At the time of this writing, Ferret is not usable. It is merely a pet project aimed at ironing out the details of the open Ferret Gaming Protocol (FGP). While Ferret is intended to be the showcase for FGP, the ultimate goal is to have other projects develop more feature-rich environments to extend on FGP, which is why FGP is being designed from the ground-up as highly extensible.
