AdslShare aims to be a powerful file sharing tool. It is built with modularity in mind. Each piece of the software is a plugin that can be loaded at start time. It currently has a GTK+ 2.x interface and a Gnutella protocol plugin. Planned features include the ability to download from different hosts, resume downloads and uploads, a new protocol with a more intelligent download engine, and a scripting interface.
BitTorrent is a tool for copying files from one machine to another. FTP punishes sites for being popular. Since all uploading is done from one place, a popular site needs big iron and big bandwidth. With BitTorrent, clients automatically mirror files they download, making the publisher's burden almost nothing.
The Bitcollider utility allows users to uniquely identify and submit files to Bitzi's community metadatabase project. The Bitcollider can be used to identify any local file and has support for extracting metadata from MP3, WAV, Vorbis, JPEG, PNG, GIF, AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and QuickTime files. Users can quickly look up all the known information about the given file in Bitzi's metadatabase.
The Collaborative Virtual Workspace (CVW) provides a "virtual building" environment where teams can communicate, collaborate, and share information regardless of their geographic location. CVW takes virtual meetings one step further and enables virtual co-location through persistent virtual rooms, each incorporating people, information, and tools appropriate to a task, operation, or service. The software optionally makes use of multicast tools to provide audio and video.
