Smuxi is an irssi-inspired, flexible, user-friendly, and cross-platform IRC client for sophisticated users. Smuxi is based on the client-server model: The core application (engine) can be placed onto a server which is connected to the Internet around-the-clock; one or more frontends then connect to the core. This allows the connection to IRC to be kept up even when all frontends have been closed. The combination of screen and irssi served as the example for this architecture. Smuxi also supports the regular single application mode. This behaves like a typical IRC client; it doesn't need separate core management and utilizes a local engine that is used by the local frontend client.
The scale-invariant feature transform is an algorithm to identify and locate interesting points within an image. For all such points, a descriptive signature is extracted. The signatures can be stored and matched among multiple images, allowing for a large number of interesting applications, such as aligning overlapping images and identifying objects or motion within image sequences. libsift is used by the autopano-sift program to create panorama images.
Wieldy is a to-do list manager that is based on the principles of GTD (Getting Things Done). It allows you to manage your to-dos in a simple but effective way. To-dos can be created as thoughts and actions, which can then be assigned to the Next Action, Today, or Someday categories. Tasks can also be scheduled and listed in a calender-like overview, as well as linked to a project or simply put on hold. Wieldy also allows you to manage your contacts and delegate actions to them. Other features include support for data encryption, tagging, priorities, recurring action templates, and synchronization with other PIMs like Outlook. No installation is needed.

Grammatica is a parser generator (compiler compiler) for C# and Java. It improves upon similar tools (like yacc and ANTLR) by creating well-commented and readable source code, by having automatic error recovery and detailed error messages, and by support for testing and debugging grammars without generating source code. Grammatica supports LL(k) grammars with an unlimited number of look-ahead tokens.
Spamato is an extensible spam filter system. It is available as an add-on for Outlook, an extension for Thunderbird and Mozilla Mail, and a stand-alone proxy component. It provides a Bayesian filter, a rule-based filter, a Java implementation of Razor (Ephemeral and Whiplash), a filter that queries domains on Google, a collaborative domain, and a collaborative hash-based filter. Graphical statistics explain the efficiency of each filter as well as the overall effectiveness of the whole system.
