Sync Mail Dir is a set of utilities to synchronize a pair of mailboxes in Maildir format using SSH to transfer data. It provides the smd-pull utility to pull changes made on the remote mailbox, smd-push to propagate local changes to the remote mailbox, and smd-loop to iterate push and pull in a timely way. Unlike OfflineIMAP It requires no IMAP server to be installed on the remote host. Moreover, it never attempts to automatically resolve conflicts between incompatible mailbox statuses; it just notifies the user explaining how he can fix the problem. Its design is similar to that of Maildirsync, but it is more efficient in terms of CPU cycles and disk I/O.
Release Notes: This release adds the ability to migrate from OfflineIMAP, plus many fixes and small performance improvements.
Jug is a task-based parallelism framework. Jug allows you to write code that is broken up into tasks and run different tasks on different processors. It uses the filesystem to communicate between processes and works correctly over NFS, so you can coordinate processes on different machines. Jug is a pure Python implementation and should work on any platform that can run Python.
Release Notes: Many small improvements in this release. A new bvalue function combines barrier and value. Several bugs have been fixed.
spdylay is an experimental implementation of Google's SPDY protocol in C. It provides a SPDY framing layer implementation. It does not perform any I/O operations. When the library needs them, it calls the callback functions provided by the application. It also does not include any event polling mechanism, so the application can freely choose the way of handling events. This library code does not depend on any particular SSL library (except for example programs that depend on OpenSSL 1.0.1 or later).
Release Notes: This release fixes the bug where on_ctrl_recv_callback is not called when RST_STREAM is received. It also fixes the bug where on_data_recv_callback and on_data_chunk_recv_callback is called after the stream was closed. A multi-threaded reverse proxy for SPDY/HTTPS is added as an example program.
Release Notes: This release has many major new features including: a new Web framework with a powerful routing engine, native-speed HTTP pipeline, and full async support. Similar to node.js, but offering sync support as well. A new MVC framework, application generator with migration support is also available. The class library has also been extended, and building is now managed by the Build It (bit) tool.

Parrot and Chirp are user-level tools that make it easy to rapidly deploy wide area filesystems. Parrot is the client component: it transparently attaches to unmodified applications, and redirects their system calls to various remote servers. A variety of controls can be applied to modify the namespace and resources available to the application. Chirp is the server component: it allows an ordinary user to easily export and share storage across the wide area with a single command. A rich access control system allows users to mix and match multiple authentication types. Parrot and Chirp are most useful in the context of large scale distributed systems such as clusters, clouds, and grids where one may have limited permissions to install software.
Release Notes: This release supports selecting an arbitrary port in a range using the environment variables TCP_LOW_PORT and TCP_HIGH_PORT. Numerous other small bugfixes are included.
Makeflow is a workflow engine for executing large complex applications on clusters, clouds, and grids. It can be used to drive several different distributed computing systems, including Condor, SGE, and the included Work Queue system. It does not require a distributed filesystem, so you can use it to harness whatever collection of machines you have available. It is typically used for scaling up data-intensive scientific applications to hundreds or thousands of cores.
Release Notes: Numerous improvements have been made to WorkQueue to improve support for various batch job submission platforms. WorkQueue now allows extensive configuration and automation of worker creation. Makeflow now supports selecting an arbitrary port in a range for a WorkQueue master.
