What was once released as the Mac Mixmaster Client has now been rechristen Mixfit. Unlike its brute port predecessor, Mixfit is a full standing MacOS application. You no longer have to format your Type2 remailer messages using awkward command lines. Mixfit now has the familiar MacOS interface with windows, menu commands, and dialog boxes.

But Mixfit is not just the Mac Mixmaster Client with a facelift. Mixfit adds several important features to help users organize information about Type2 remailer chains. Using the statistics published daily on the web in the file called mlist, Mixfit can use this information to build remailer chains for you.
Mixfit also interacts more smoothly with the MacOS and with other applications running under it. It can now recieve text from other applications through the clipboard. It can output the cyphertext sent to remailers as a file, as contents of a window, or as the contents of the clipboard. In addition, Mixfit is a Word Services server. This means that it can be connected to client applications familiar with the Word Services Apple Event suite. Once applications such as Tex-Edit Plus, MT-NewsWatcher, or Eudora Pro enlist the services of Mixfit, they can send text directly to Mixfit using menu commands, rather through using an intermediary such as a file or the clipboard.
