j-Interop is a Java Open Source library (under LGPL) that implements the DCOM wire protocol (MSRPC) to enable development of Pure, Bi- Directional, Non-Native Java applications which can interoperate with any COM component. The implementation is itself purely in Java and does not use Java Native Interface (JNI) to provide COM access. This allows the library to be used from any Non-Windows platform. It comes with pre- implemented packages for automation. This includes support for IDispatch, ITypeInfo, and ITypeLib. For more flexibility (in the cases where automation is not supported), it provides an API set to directly invoke operations on a COM server.
Release Notes: This release moves from LGPL v3 to EPL v1, removes GNU Crypto and moves to BouncyCastle, removes Wombat classes and moves to a Java implementation of the same, upgrades to the DCOM 5.7 protocol. lets j-Interop "negotiate" (as per DCOM specs) and use the latest protocol if supported by the Server, and adds many minor fixes.

Pride combines bash scripts, zenity, ant, ImageMagick, and the Android tools to create a fast and simple POSIX alternative for Android development. It provides all the basic commands (clean, build, release, etc.) of other Android IDEs. But it is primarily a robust and simple injection framework. Injections from methods to clusters of activities are easily created from existing code and can then be injected into any project. Pride can also be used to batch build, load, or release multiple projects and can update class and resource files among projects that use the same objects or resources.
Release Notes: FTPJuju Activity has been added to injections. This activity has 16 bookmarks for single-file uploads, downloads, and deletions. It is intended as an adjunct activity for editors and other Web-related apps.

Release Notes: This version fixes some annoying bugs on event notification loops and upgraders. It fixes many minor things and adds some features (one user global restore, mailshare sharing handling by users, etc.)
Fish Sync is a file syncing application. It can transfer multiple folders between multiple machines, keeping these folders synchronized. The Fish package does not need to be available on each machine in the group, only on the machine initiating the synchronization. The Fish program is separated into two pieces, one which does the work in the background, and the other a frontend configuration tool. This separation allows the Fish service to be run on servers where a GUI interface is not desired.
Release Notes: This release includes several bug fixes and minor improvements. Fish-Sync is now more flexible about finding runtime dependencies. The latest version compiles and runs on most Linux distributions and FreeBSD. With minor adjustments to the Makefile, Fish-Sync can also be built and installed on MINIX. Additional improvements include a reduction in the number of dependencies, support for syncing between machines running services on non-standard network ports, and better security key management.
