skabus is unreleased software. It will be released at some point in the next years.
skabus is a simple message bus for Unix. Clients can connect to the bus and register themselves on various channels; they can send messages to other clients or to a channel - and everyone on the channel receives the message.
skabus was born after the author fruitlessly tried for months to make D-Bus work on a commercial embedded project and finally gave up in disgust. skabus does none of D-Bus mistakes such as impossible to understand core library, feeble attempts at security by including more code instead of less, object typing to accomodate Java more than Unix, use of XML to follow the lemming pack, etc. etc.
