SNP Goes Corporate!

Although we support (and love) GNTP, SNP is still our native protocol for over-the-wire communication with Snarl and we've been working with a number of businesses (some small, some not so small) to understand their requirements for network-based notifications.  The outcome of this (and it's still evolving) is SNP 3.0.
SNP 3.0 builds (quite literally) on SNP 2.0.  It leverages the standard structured format of SNP 2.0 requests while addressing the short-comings of that protocol.  It also adds important functionality for corporate environments - namely subscribing and forwarding of notifications - and lays the groundwork for other functionality such as native encryption of notification data (although we still recommend businesses use network-based encryption rather than doing it at the app-level).
You can find out more about SNP 3.0 here and you'll be able to try it out for yourself (if you're a registered developer) as the functionality will be built into 2.4.2 DR3.
