BZip2/OSS-QM is the OSS-QM project's branch of bzip2, which contains a lot of fixes not yet in the original upstream. The primary goal is to provide QM'ed/fixed versions of upstream releases, so they can be built and used without additional patches, especially in sysrooted crosscompiling environments.
MultiLoad is a load balancer that redirects HTTP requests to pre-defined servers/locations. It gives the provider a way to balance the traffic and hides the real download location. It allows you to manage different version of each download. It is also a load balancing server extension. You can distribute files on some servers so that a downloaded file can be loaded form different servers. These servers can have different priorities to control the active traffic.
MPIBZIP2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file compressor that uses MPI and achieves significant speedup on cluster machines. The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2 1.0.2 or newer (i.e. anything compressed with MPIBZIP2 can be decompressed with bzip2).
Jafe is a small application designed to keep sensitive data organized in an easy-to-use way, with heavy focus on security. It's designed to be accessible on as many systems as possible. It's regularly tested under Windows, Linux, and OS X, JDK 1.4.2 and 1.5, but should work on other systems. It features an easy-to use interface, strong encryption (AES, Twofish, Serpent and Camellia), and plausible deniability. Different data storage backends will be supported: filesystems, embedding into images, saving over the Internet, etc.
midget is a small SMB-share based backup script intended for use in unattended environments where finding a person to create backups is next to impossible. It is designed to allow the deployment of a file server with a built-in DVD-R drive at a client's site and subsequently perform completely automated backups. The backup server is configured through a CSV file stored on one of the server's shares.
bzip2smp parallelizes the bzip2 compression process to achieve a near-linear performance increase on SMP machines. On a two-processor Xeon machine, the speedup is around 180%. The tool's main purpose is to aid performing heavy-duty server backups. It can also be used on modern desktop multicore processors (such as AMD Athlon64 X2 and Intel Pentium D).
This is the "progress" utility from NetBSD, ported to Linux and Solaris. The progress utility allows the file I/O of progresses to be monitored. It includes support for gzip-compressed files, so "progress -z -f file.tar.gz tar xf -" would show the progress of extracting file.tar.gz.
