Deva is a programming language that is small, dynamic, and has some similarities to C and Python. It is designed for embedding in C++ applications, and is also suitable for basic programming tasks. It is written to be as simple as possible, but no simpler. Deva is a multi-paradigm language: it is essentially procedural and imperative, but with support for basic functional and object-oriented idioms.

neko-install-cd is a development tool for modifying System Rescue CD images. It can also perform many other operations. It has a simple interface with excellent inline help. Operations it can perform include: booting your modified image in a virtual machine, burning the original or modified image to a USB drive, creating patch sets from your modifications (using aufs or built-in helper scripts). All of these operations can be performed directly from your Linux distribution, without having to first boot into the system rescue CD as with the system rescue CD equivalents.
