Support for #Jingle file transfer over #SOCKS5 was merged into #Dino. SOCKS5 enables data transfer without an intermediary but also supports transfer via a server if a #firewall prohibits direct transfer. Data transfer over the #XMPP stream ("In-Band-Bytestream") has an overhead due to encoding, but serves as a fallback if http file upload and SOCKS5 fail.
@dino This is great. Love seeing the progress that Dino is making.
