As I said, The Web Transceiver code is being looked at to evaluate if 
and how it can be moved forward.  A one size fits all solution will not 
adequately work on all platforms. Support for mobile devices is a must. 
As of right now for access to specific nodes the choices are Zopier and 
Android IAXRPT. Zopier runs on IOS and Android. Android IAXRPT of course 
runs on Android and is tailored to AllStarLink nodes. The Web 
Transceiver is more general.
