The Shared Scientific Toolbox is a library that facilitates development of efficient, modular, and robust scientific/distributed computing applications in Java. It features multidimensional arrays with extensive linear algebra and FFT support, an asynchronous, scalable networking layer, and advanced class loading, message passing, and statistics packages.
Dapper, or "Distributed and Parallel Program Execution Runtime", is a tool for taming the complexities of developing for large-scale cloud and grid computing, enabling the user to create distributed computations from the essentials: the code that will execute, along with a dataflow graph description. It supports rich execution semantics, carefree deployment, a robust control protocol, modification of the dataflow graph at runtime, and an intuitive user interface.
ZicBee is an autonomous music database and player that is also usable from quodlibet, a Web browser, or any player that supports the M3U format. The primary goal of this project is to support very large databases of music from multiple hosts or removable storage, while remaining responsive to the user.
HDT (Hardware Detection Tool) is an OS independent tool that displays low-level information on any x86 compatible system. It detects ACPI, CPU, PCI devices, DMI (memory, BIOS, motherboard, IPMI base board, chassis, batteries, CPU), disks (geometry, partitions), PXE environment, VESA modes, and VPD. It can also deduce the Linux kernel modules needed by a given host.
The Structural Proteomics Application Development Environment (SPADE) provides a community suite for developing and sharing protein structure and sequence tools. It includes a custom molecular viewer, sequence alignment editor, many reusable tools, and a chemical probing suite to support experimental verification of predicted structural models.
BurnerOnFire is a multi-threaded program that can write the same content to multiple CD/DVD burners simultaneously. It is currently developed and tested only on Debian and only supports content in the form of ISO files. It uses D-Bus/HAL specification to interact with hardware. It spawns subprocesses that wrap around the command line program Wodim. BurnerOnFire has both CLI and GUI (GTK+) interfaces.
