UDPCast allows to send data simultaneously to many destinations on a local net. This can for instance be used to install entire classrooms of PCs at once. The advantage over using other methods (nfs, ftp, whatever) is that udpcast uses Ethernet's multicast abilities: it won't take longer to install 15 machines than it would to install 2. The tool comes with a busybox bootdisk for easy loading of the tool. However, udpcast can also be started from the command line of an already installed system, and can be used for other purposes than just system installation.
Release Notes: The ability to boot off USB media (and save its config there, just like on floppy). The ability for the sender to start a boot server (DHCP + TFTP) off of which the receivers can now boot (only available for the USB or CD images). Busybox is now compiled against uclibc, which leads to much smaller sizes. Thus, the pre-built udpflop.img is now back, with the most frequently used net and disk modules included.

Zebra_TransForm is a tiny (3KB minified) jQuery plugin for styling the appearance of checkboxes, radio buttons, and select boxes without sacrificing functionality and accessibility: the elements preserve their tabindex order, give visual feedback when having the focus, can be accessed by using the keyboard, and look and behave in the same way in all major browsers. It degrades gracefully in IE6.
Release Notes: Many bugfixes and enhancements.

Archipel is a solution to manage and supervise virtual machines. No matter if you have a few locally on your computer or thousands through data centers, Archipel is a central solution to manage them all. You can use all libvirt-supported virtualization engines like KVM, Xen, OpenVZ, or VMWare. You can perform all basic virtualization commands and many other things like live migration, VMCasts, packages, etc. Archipel uses XMPP for all communication. There is no Web service or custom protocol. You just need at least one XMPP server, like eJabberd, to start playing with it. This allows Archipel to work completely in real time. You never have to refresh the user interface. You'll be notified as soon as something happens. You can even use your favorite chat clients to command your infrastructure. You can open a chat conversation with your virtual machine and say things like "How are you today?" or "Hey, please reboot."
