the security model of the Groove platform.   Also featured is a chapter on
Groove security from O'Reilly's forthcoming book on peer-to-peer, and a

GROOVE TERMINOLOGY
--------------------------------------
shared space:
A virtual private meeting place where people interact and share
information.  A shared space is always available to any Groove member who
has been invited to participate in that space, though all invited members
are not required to participate at the same time.

transceiver:
The main window in Groove where most activities -- collaborating in a
shared space, updating account information, finding new contacts -- take
place.  All other activities, such as sending instant messages or
invitations, can be initiated by clicking buttons found in the transceiver.

notifier:
The green message bar that informs you of new events, such as receiving new
messages, or the status of ongoing events, such as pending invitations.
Notifications display in the lower right corner of the computer screen for
a few seconds, then disappear.  You can re-display most notifications by
placing the mouse over the Groove icon in the Windows status bar.

awareness:
When you are in a shared space and online, Groove monitors the status of
other members and lets you know if they are online and in the space, and if
they are, what tools they are using.


NEW TIP
----------------------------------------
How do I create an instant voice message?
If your computer is equipped with a microphone, you can create and send
instant voice messages.  Here's how:

NEW FAQ
----------------------------------------
Q - Since I upgraded to build 754, I have noticed some fluctuations in the
awareness of other online members.  Other members of my shared space are
shown as being offline when I know that they are online. I can see the chat
that they type, but they cannot see mine.  Also, they are not receiving my
instant messages.  What is causing this?

A - There is a known bug in build 754 that causes, in limited
circumstances, inconsistent communications with other users.  Sometimes,
when in a shared space, a user will see the other members' status as
"Offline", when they are in fact online, and maybe in the shared space with
them.  Although the user experiencing this may not see the other members as
online, he/she may be able to see all (some) of the other members'
contributions to the shared space.  This is an issue that users utilizing
certain types of proxy server set-ups will experience.  It may either block
communications completely between two users, or block it in one direction
only.

This fix for this bug is in process and will be available in an upcoming
build.


NEW PEER-TO-PEER BOOK FROM O'REILLY
----------------------------------------
Coming in March, O'Reilly will release "Peer-to-Peer - Harnessing the Power
of Disruptive Technologies," edited by Andy Oram.  The book includes a
