Qt is a comprehensive, object-oriented development framework that enables development of high-performance, cross-platform rich-client and server-side applications. When you implement a program with Qt, you can run it on the X Window System (Unix/X11), Apple Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows NT/9x/2000/XP by simply compiling the source code for the platform you want. Qt is the basis for the KDE desktop environment, and is also used in numerous commercial applications such as Google Earth, Skype for Linux, and Adobe Photoshop Elements.
Calligra is an integrated suite of applications that cover office, creative, and management needs. It offers applications on both desktop computers and mobile platforms like tablets and smartphones. OpenDocument Format (ODF) is used, making it compatible with OpenOffice.org, LibreOffice, and Microsoft Office. Calligra Suite contains the following applications: Calligra Words (word processor), Sheets (spreadsheets), Stage (presentations), Flow (diagrams and flowcharts), Kexi (visual database creator), Braindump (note taking), Plan (project management), Krita (drawing), and Karbon (vector graphics).
Kile is a user-friendly TeX/LaTeX editor for the KDE desktop environment. It lets you compile, convert, and view your document with one click and features auto-completion of (La)TeX commands, templates and wizards for starting a new document, easy insertion of many standard tags and symbols and the option to add user defined tags, inverse and forward search, collection of documents that belong together into a project, easy insertion of citations and references, a flexible build system, QuickPreview of selected parts of a document, easy access to various help sources, and advanced editing commands.
Jaro Mail is an integrated suite of interoperable tools for GNU/Linux and Apple/OS X to manage email communication in a private way, without relying on online services (in fact, encouraging users to store email locally). It mainly features a system for mailinglist filtering, address-book integrated whitelisting, and long-term email storage and archiving with functions for fast search and usage statistics. It makes internal use of customized versions of popular Unix tools like Mutt, Fetchmail, Procmail, Mairix, and Msmtp.
The Open Real-Time Ethernet (ORTE) is an implementation of the Real-Time Publish-Subscribe (RTPS) communication protocol. RTPS is a new application layer protocol targeted to real-time communication areas, and is built on the top of standard UDP stack. Since there are many TCP/IP stack implementations under many operating systems, and RTPS does not have any other special hardware or software requirements, it should be easily ported to many target platforms. Because it uses only UDP, it retains control of timing and reliability.
Forban is a P2P file sharing application for link-local and local area networks. Forban works independently from the Internet and uses only the local area capabilities to announce, discover, search, or share files. Forban relies on HTTP and is opportunistic, meaning that it replicates any files of interest seen in its proximity. The Forban protocols are minimalistic to ease the production of other implementations.
As a plugin API, Frei0r's main emphasis is on simplicity, to round up the most common video effects into simple filters, sources, and mixers that can be controlled by parameters. Frei0r plugins can be shared by many host applications, avoiding duplicate efforts by different projects. Frei0r is not meant as a competing standard to more ambitious efforts trying to satisfy the needs of many different applications and more complex effects, as it doesn't provides things like an extensive parameter mechanism or event handling.
Marble is a Virtual Globe and World Atlas that you can use to learn more about Earth: you can pan and zoom around, and you can look up places and roads. A mouse click on a place label will provide the respective Wikipedia article. It's also possible to measure distances between locations or watch the current cloud cover. Marble offers different thematic maps: a classroom-style topographic map, a satellite view, street map, earth at night, and temperature and precipitation maps. All maps include a custom map key, so it can also be used as an educational tool for use in classrooms. For educational purposes, you can also change the date and time and watch how the starry sky and the twilight zone on the map change. Marble also features multiple projections: choose between a flat map ("Plate carré"), Mercator, or the globe.
