GNU TeXmacs is a free wysiwyw (what you see is what you want) editing platform with special features for scientists. The software aims to provide a unified and user friendly framework for editing structured documents with different types of content: text, mathematics, graphics, interactive content. TeXmacs can also be used as an interface to many external systems for computer algebra, numerical analysis, and statistics. New presentation styles can be written by the user and new features can be added to the editor using Scheme.
The Kawa Scheme System is a full Scheme implementation, completely written in Java. Scheme functions and files are automatically compiled into Java byte-codes. Kawa does some optimizations, and the compiled code runs at a reasonable speed. It provides the usual read-eval-print loop, as well as batch modes. The Kawa compilation framework is also useful for implementing other languages on top of JVM. There is active development of XQuery (the XML query language), and less active development of Emacs Lisp, Common Lisp, and EcmaScript.
BlogMax makes it easy to use Emacs to maintain a Web log. You define templates and an FTP site for uploads. Most of your site's content is defined by text files. Saving a text file automatically wraps the template around it, expands macros and shortcuts, and saves the HTML file. Other commands in "weblog" mode upload files via FTP, create an RSS file, yank links or blockquotes into the buffer, create shortcuts, etc. The BlogMax Web site was, of course, created with BlogMax. It has been tested in Emacs 20.3.1 on Windows and Emacs 20.4.1 on Mandrake Linux.
LinkController is a software package designed to make maintaining Web pages easier by checking links and providing easy and integrated interfaces for examining and repairing broken links. In contrast with the standard design of link checking software, LinkController is designed to check links over the long term and to minimize the work involved in dealing with those broken links.
