Episode 75: Project Treble - for the HAL of it

Iliyan, Romain, Chet, and a complete lack of Tor.
In this episode, Chet and Romain (no Tor in sight. Anyone seen Tor? He was on the calendar appointment, totally expected him to show) talked with Iliyan Malchev from the Treble project. Treble was introduced in May of this year as an important step toward faster and more frequent release updates on devices.
