BitRock InstallBuilder allows you to create easy-to-use multiplatform installers for Linux (x86/PPC/s390/x86_64/Itanium), Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris (x86/Sparc), IRIX, AIX, and HP-UX applications. The generated application installers have a native look-and-feel and no external dependencies, and can be run in GUI, text, and unattended modes. In addition to self-contained installers, the installation tool is also able to generate standalone RPM packages.
Project-Builder is a tool that helps you build packages of your application (managed with a tar file or a configuration management system such as CVS, Subversion, Mercurial, or GIT). It is able to generate a build package skeleton for your project. With simple configuration files, it can generate for up to 20 different tuples of distributions (name, version, architecture), including Fedora, Mandriva, OpenSuSE, Debian, Ubuntu, Gentoo, and Slackware. It is a good tool for doing continuous packaging.
WinDriver automates and simplifies the development of user-mode Linux device drivers for PCI, CardBus, ISA, PMC, PCI-X, PCI-EXPRESS, and CompactPCI as well as USB 1.1/2.0. No internal OS knowledge or kernel level programming is required. It supports kernel 2.0.31 and above, including embedded Linux, x86 and PowerPC processors, and any 32-bit development environment supporting C or Delphi. Applications are source code compatible across Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP/XP Embedded/Server 2003/CE, Linux, Solaris, and VxWorks.
stowES (stow Enhancement Script) is a Perl script which tries to ease the use of the "stow" packaging program and software which can be compiled and installed with autoconf. It automates the compilation and installation of software packages and provides some useful functions to maintain your stow packages (e.g., list packages, check packages for integrity, etc.).
Motor is a text-mode integrated programming environment for Linux. It consists of an editor with syntax highlighting, a project manager, a makefile generator, gcc, ctags, gdb, autoconf/automake and grep front-ends. CVS integration is also provided. It allows one to edit, compile, and debug programs without a need to leave the IDE, automatically check in/out files from a CVS repository and import projects into CVS, and generate distribution packages (tar.gz and RPM). The color schemes are customisable.
Releaser is a set of scripts to automate and manage the tasks related to software package releases. It is designed to be modular and to make it easy to both select a particular set of actions associated with releases of a particular project (such as changelog generation, uploading of tarballs, posting announcements to mailing lists), and create new actions that integrate seamlessly into the process. Its status is still somewhat experimental, but the most basic functionality is there.
