Mintty is a terminal emulator for Cygwin and MSYS with a native Windows user interface and minimalist design. It is based on parts of PuTTY by Simon Tatham and provides xterm-compatible terminal emulation, but does not require an X server. Its features include a simple options dialog, Unicode support, fullscreen mode, drag & drop, and window transparency.
GetData is a library that provides an API to interface with dirfile databases. The dirfile database format is designed to provide a fast, scalable format for storing and reading binary, synchronously-sampled, time-ordered data. GetData was originally written for the BOOMERanG and BLAST experiments as a data format suitable for use for both quick-look and data reduction. It is now used by many other cosmological and astrophysical experiments including ACT, Planck, Spider, Keck, as well as other projects.
Grand Unified Builder (GUB) is a mini source-based distribution and packaging system. It cross-compiles several packages with their dependencies and assembles them into a single installation package. It currently supports GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows installation packages. All packages are fully relocatable and can be installed with user privileges. Plain Python classes are used to describe package build specifics. For reasonably well behaved packages, individual build specifications can stay very simple by extending the generic build specification classes. It was originally developed for turnkey building of all LilyPond binary installers.
