Knights is an action game for two players involving two knights who must explore randomly generated dungeons and complete various quests. Each game revolves around a quest. A typical quest would involve finding some items and carrying them back to your starting point. This may sound easy, but as there are only enough items in the dungeon for one player to win, you may end up having to kill your opponent to get his stuff! Other quests involve escaping from the dungeon, fighting a duel to the death against the enemy knight, or destroying an ancient Book using a special Wand. While exploring the dungeon, you will find aid in the form of weapons, potions, and magical spells, but beware, for there are also deadly traps, bloodthirsty vampire bats, and zombies who exist only to kill living knights! This is a remake of an Amiga game by Kalle Marjola from 1994. This version has generally smoother gameplay than the original, and has full support for online play.
ChaiScript is an embedded scripting language designed from the ground up to directly target C++ and take advantage of modern C++ development techniques. Being a native C++ application, it has some advantages over existing embedded scripting languages. It uses a header-only approach, which makes it easy to integrate with existing projects. It maintains type safety between your C++ application and user scripts. It supports a variety of C++ techniques including callbacks, overloaded functions, class methods, and STL containers.
GoFigure2 is a cross-platform application for visualization, processing, and analysis of out-of-core multidimensional microscopy data (5D data sets). Users can visualize images, segment cells in 3d, track cells through time, and detect cell divisions to generate lineages. Results are stored in a MySQL database back-end. Once data has been processed, cell-based object features are quantified and can be used for sorting, color-coding, analysis, or exported to external tools. GoFigure2 was developed for biology research including studying the development of embryos (zebrafish and mouse), synthetic biology (signaling), and for drug screening.

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.
GPlates offers a novel combination of interactive plate-tectonic reconstructions, geographic information system (GIS) functionality, and raster data visualization. GPlates enables both the visualization and the manipulation of plate-tectonic reconstructions and associated geological, geophysical, and paleo-geographic data through geological time.
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer electronic cash system that is completely decentralized, without the need for a central server or trusted parties. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly with each other, with the help of a P2P network to check for double-spending.
