Experience-Based Language Acquisition (EBLA) is an open computational framework for visual perception and grounded language acquisition. It can "watch" a series of short videos and acquire a simple language of nouns and verbs corresponding to the objects and object-object relations in those videos. Upon acquiring this protolanguage, it can perform basic scene analysis to generate descriptions of novel videos. While there have been several systems capable of learning object or event labels for videos, this is the first known system to acquire both nouns and verbs using a grounded computer vision system.
GPG-Ezmlm is an encrypted mailing list. PGP or GPG encrypted mails sent to the list are re-encrypted with subscriber keys, allowing for encrypted mail communications without requiring that all users know all other users' keys. Key exchange during list subscription is supported. It requires an existing Ezmlm installation to function.
Fugu SSH is a Mac OS X graphical frontend to OpenSSH's Secure File Transfer application (SFTP). SFTP is similar to FTP, but, unlike FTP, the entire session is encrypted, meaning no passwords are sent in cleartext form, and it is thus much less vulnerable to third-party interception. Fugu allows you to take advantage of SFTP's security without having to sacrifice the ease of use found in a GUI. Fugu also includes support for SCP files transfers, and the ability to create secure tunnels through SSH.
CVSToys is a collection of companion tools for the Concurrent Versions System, better known as CVS. It currently contains FreshCVS, which performs actions in response to a commit. Actions include notification by various methods, updating a working copy, and rsync'ing to backup. Another key feature of FreshCVS notifications is that you receive one per commit, not one for each directory of the commit as loginfo-triggered scripts are prone to do. FreshCVS is extensible with Python, and notifications may be published by a Perspective Broker network service, allowing 3rd party clients to listen in.
iHook is a graphical frontend for any command-line executable. It gives scripts a pleasant Aqua face, and allows script writers to provide graphical feedback without having to learn one of the higher APIs available for Mac OS X. iHook accomplishes this through its ability to understand a set of directives. When a script writes an iHook Directive to stdout, iHook will modify its own interface based on the content of the Directive. In this way, a simple shell script can have an Aqua interface, complete with a progress bar and drawer. When launched in the Finder, iHook prompts the user to choose a script to run; iHook also accepts file drops on its icon, and will attempt to run the dropped file. When no user is logged in, iHook tries to execute /etc/logout.hook. This makes iHook highly useful as an interface for Mac OS X LogoutHooks.
softflowd is a software flow-based network monitor. It tracks network traffic flows, reports aggregate statistics, and optionally exports Cisco Netflow compatible datagrams (to unicast hosts or multicast groups). It can listen on a promiscuous network interface or read store pcap capture files, and includes a sophisticated control interface.
