New version out but unfortunately even though Tor is an open protocol, OnionFruit doesn't look like an open project:
OnionFruit™ Connect is a closed-source program. One of the reasons for this is because we use proprietary assembles to create our UI (Telerik/PostSharp). We can't share these so there is not much point in disclosing the majority of the source with the aim to allow people to improve the app (we also don't want similar versions of the app flooding the market). Because of this, people are free to open issues with feature requests (as stated above) and they can be discussed and planned if there is a high enough demand for them.
