LRZIP is a compression program and library that can achieve very high compression ratios and speed when used with large files using unlimited sized compression windows. It uses the combined compression algorithms of zpaq and lzma for maximum compression, lzo for maximum speed, and the long range redundancy reduction of rzip. It is designed to scale with increases with RAM size, improving compression further. A choice of either size or speed optimizations allows for either better compression than even lzma can provide, or better speed than gzip, but with bzip2 sized compression levels. It also has high grade password protected encryption and full STDIN/STDOUT support.
The aim of LucED is to be a fast and responsive X11 text editor with a simple but powerful user interface similar to NEdit. It uses Lua as an embedded scripting language, and features syntax highlighting that is configurable via PCRE regular expressions with arbitrarily nested patterns.
METSlib is an object-oriented metaheuristics framework in C++ designed to make implementing or adapting models easy. The model is modular: all the implemented search algorithms can be applied to the same model. METSlib implements the basics of some metaheuristics algorithms, such as Random Restart Local Search, Variable Neighborhood Search, Iterated Local Search, Simulated Annealing, and Tabu Search. For each algorithm, you must implement an objective function, a neighborhood (move manager), and some moves. Tabu Search is one of the fastest ways to generate near-optimal solutions to a wide range of hard combinatorial optimization problems.
A 'honeypot' is designed to detect server-side attacks. In contrast, a 'honeyclient' is designed to detect client-side attacks. Specifically, a honeyclient is a dedicated host that drives specially instrumented applications to access remote servers to see if those servers are behaving in a malicious manner (by compromising the client). Honeyclients can proactively detect exploits against client applications without known signatures. This framework uses a client-server model with SOAP messaging as the primary communication method, and uses the free version of VMware Server as a means of virtualizing the client environment.
MediaTomb is a UPnP media server with a nice Web user interface. It allows you to stream your digital media through your home network and play it on a variety of UPnP compatible devices. MediaTomb implements the UPnP MediaServer 1.0 specification. The current implementation focuses on parts that are required by the specification. MediaTomb should work with any UPnP compliant MediaRenderer.
Meep is a free finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulation software package to model electromagnetic systems. It supports distributed-memory parallel simulations, nonlinear, anisotropic, and dispersive media, PML absorbing boundaries, and 1D/2D/3D and cylindrical problems. It is completely scriptable from either C++ or a Scheme (GNU Guile) interface.
