In late 2012, Project Byzantium applied for a technology grant from the Information Security Coalition. We were informed earlier this week after the selection process was over that Project Byzantium has been given a $10,000us grant to continue research and development for the next six calendar months! We will be putting the money toward additional equipment to test and debug Byzantium Linux on as well as hardware to experiment with integrating Byzantium Linux into various and sundry amateur radio-related data communications networks. Our final milestone will be v0.4 of Byzantium Linux somewhen in August of 2013.
We know, v0.3 isn’t out yet. Workaday life ambushed us, and we have one final bug left to fix before we can release it. We’re hacking as fast as we can, we promise!
