aria2 is a utility for downloading files. The supported protocols are HTTP(S), FTP, BitTorrent, and Metalink. It has a powerful segmented downloading ability, downloading a file from multiple sources and multiple protocols and utilizing your download bandwidth to the maximum. It supports downloading a file from HTTP(S)/FTP and BitTorrent at the same time, while the data downloaded from HTTP(S)/FTP is uploaded to the BitTorrent swarm. Using Metalink's chunk checksums, aria2 automatically validates chunks of data while downloading a file like BitTorrent.
Vortex Library is an implementation of the RFC 3080 and RFC 3081 standard definitions, known as the BEEP Core protocol, implemented on top of the TCP/IP stack. It comes with complete XML-RPC over BEEP RFC 3529 support, complete support for the TUNNEL profile (which allows you to perform proxy operations for every BEEP profile developed), support for HTTP proxies, and more. The API is consistent, easy to use, and allows you to write application protocols very quickly. The API is designed to allow bindings for other languages to be built easily.
Podget is a simple podcast aggregator optimized for running as a scheduled background job (i.e. cron). It features support for downloading podcasts from RSS and XML feeds, for sorting the podcasts into folders and categories, for importing podcast URLs from iTunes PCAST files and OPML lists, automatic M3U and ASX playlist creation, and automatic cleanup of old podcasts. It also features automatic UTF-16 conversion for podcasts hosted on Windows servers.
SPF is a new strategy for preventing junk mail. The present SMTP standard for email allows anyone to forge anyone else's email address. SPF verifies that the Sender address of an email message matches (according to some policy) the client IP address that submitted it. libspf2 is a complete and robust implementation of SPF which provides support for many MTAs. Support for new MTAs is in progress.
coNCePTuaL is a domain-specific programming language for rapidly generating programs that measure the performance and/or test the correctness of networks and network protocol layers. A few lines of coNCePTuaL code can produce programs that would take significantly more effort to write in a conventional programming language.
BitchX is the premiere IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client. It originally was a modified version of the popular ircII client, and the features were eventually merged into the EPIC IRC client. The current development is aimed at merging the client back to a current branch of EPIC and bringing compatibility and stability back to the client, while bringing the features that are BitchX into a new client.
The SMS Server Tools send and receive short messages through GSM modems or mobile phones. Messages are stored as text files in spool directories. External programs or scripts of any language can be used to filter, inspect, and answer messages automatically. Events and alarms can be passed to scripts for integration in monitoring tools. The program generates performance statistics as well. This daemon supports 7, 8, and 16 bit character sets as well as binary data (ringtones, logos, wap-push), user data header, flash, and delivery reports.
The SMS Server Tools 3 is a SMS gateway that can send and receive short messages through GSM modems and mobile phones. Messages are sent by simply storing text files into a special spool directory. It also stores received messages into another directory as text files. Binary messages including Unicode text and ring tones are also supported, and it is possible to send WAP Push and system messages. The program can run scripts after events like the reception of a message, successful sending, and when the program detects a problem.
UrJTAG aims to create an enhanced, modern tool for communicating over JTAG with flash chips, CPUs, and many more. It takes on the well proven openwince jtag tools code. Future plans include conversion of the code base into a library that can be used with other applications. A flexible remote communication protocol that can be used over almost any type of serial link (including TCP/IP) is currently being defined.
