JS WARS is a classic shoot 'em up written to demonstrate the power of modern Web browsers. It is targeting Firefox 3.5 with its audio/video support and increased performance, and uses the canvas tag. It should work well in other modern Web browsers (supporting the canvas tag), just without the music and sound effects.
PHPJasperXML is a class that allows native PHP code to read Jasper report files and generate PDFs on the fly. The project began due to a need to develop Web reports in PHP easily. The output format is PDF, because it is platform-independent and printer-friendly. It allows PHP programmers to design reports with Java iReport and run them from PHP. It is completely different from php-java bridge, as the code is run completely from PHP. A wrapper will convert report element from JRXML and pass them to the FPDF class. The project is still in an alpha state, and much of the functionality is not ready. However, it already can create many reports.
Rakontu is a Web application that small groups of people can use together to share and work with their stories. It's for any group of people with stories to share and a reason to share them. Members build shared "story museums" that they can draw upon to achieve common goals like promoting a cause, learning from each other, and finding solutions to problems. It is based on ten years of research and practice in the field of organizational and community narrative and is a companion to the free e-book workingwithstories.org, which helps people use narrative techniques to help their communities and organizations. It uses questions, annotations, and links to organize and connect stories in more meaningful and useful ways than is possible in other social media applications. Other features such as safe storytelling via fictional attribution, the bridging of online and offline worlds, and fluid contribution roles are designed for the unique situation of people sharing stories for a reason.
Maarch Entreprise is a professional Document Management System that natively answers a vast majority of the needs for operational document management. It has been designed by two experienced consultants in electronic archiving and automatic documents production. It offers guarantees of stability and scalability. Particular care has been taken to assure the best performance on standard hardware. As it is based on Maarch Framework, Enterprise is completely modular: functional features are grouped in modules that expose services, which can be enabled or disabled to best suit end-user needs. A skilled engineer can easily add or replace a module without changing the core of the system.
Multicrush is a wrapper around pngcrush that distributes the work of brute-force compressing a single image over several pngcrush processes. This gets you a slightly less than a linear speedup, caused by different compression methods having slightly different durations. For example, the author has measured a speedup of 1.92 on a 2-core Intel T5300, and 3.86 on a 4-core Intel Q6600. The only requirements are a copy of pngcrush and at least Python 2.4. If you have version 2.6 or higher, multicrush can automatically detect how many CPUs to use.
