SysopView shows information in a visually attractive way, like computers in movies do. The idea is that it can show information relevant to system administrators non-comprehensible for non-technical personnel, while still looking attractive even if you don't know what is shown. The current version can show nagios status data, webcam streams (mjpeg, jpeg, and video4Linux), and VNC, has a built-in terminal emulator in which regular text applications can be run, can sniff the network (including remotely) and dissect streams and show pictures which are sniffed, can show external bitmaps (from, for example, mrtg and rrdtool), and can scroll text (currently showing output of rssfeeds).

Release Notes: This release fixes a compilation problem with libpng15 (for Fedora users, for example) and adds filtering to the nagios viewer.
Release Notes: This release adds animation improvements (no more hiccups). Movements are no longer linear by default, but cosinus-interpolated, giving more fluent movements.
Release Notes: This release adds several small fixes. video4Linux is now optional, enabling you to build the program on other Unix systems as well.
Release Notes: This version can connect to a VNC server and show its view in a window. It also supports Kinect sensors and can use some features of OpenCV (e.g. face recognition). The animations are now more fluid. "Remote sniffing" is now supported: a small application can be run on the Internet gateway, which then sends the sniffed data to the SysopView instance somewhere else on your network. For the people who don't like the default animation script, the program now has an animation scripting module. GCC 4.7 is now required to compile the program.
