gtermix is a GTK+ telnet client intended for calling BBSes. It utilizes a custom VGA textmode emulating terminal widget that allows it to accurately render bulletin board systems as they were in DOS terminal programs. It currently features a GTK+ user interface, dialing directory, support for ANSI, vt100, Avatar, and TextFX terminal emulations, and proper rendering for DOS-style BBSes.
nms is a set of drop-in replacements for the CGI scripts found at Matt's Script Archive. They have been developed from the ground up to emulate their behavior, but in many cases are better written and more secure. The collection includes form mail, guest book, simple search, and counter scripts.
panFora is a full featured, high performance Web-based collaboration tool for discussion forums and file sharing. Using standard web browsers and a multi-framed/windowed approach, it has a desktop application feel familiar to users of desktop email/newsgroup tools.

Extensive admin features allow forums to be created, customized, colorized, reconfigured and maintained, completely from the web. Other unique features include hierarchical topic structure, announcements by groups, and full but safe HTML formatting support in message posts. A popular high performance open-source embedded database is built-in; no database installation is required by the user, making panFora installation fast and easy.

LysKOM is an online, text based, interactive discussion system sort of like a mix between Mail, News, IRC and a BBS system. It's modeled after the KOM system that was available to DECsystems running the TOPS-20 operating system ages ago. The web site for LysKOM is written in Swedish, but the README files on the FTP site are in English. Both the server and (some of) the client(s) can speak both Swedish, English and other languages. LysKOM is a client-server system. This project is the server software itself.
