UNITED-NUKE is a secure and exceptionally fast content management system that is compatible with PHP-Nuke add-ons, including blocks, modules, and themes. It is up to ten times faster than PHP-Nuke, contains a new secured authorization scheme, SLUFU, an update system similar to MS Windows Update, an automatic DB update service, an extensible theme engine, and support for RSS 0.91, 0.92, 2.0, and Atom.
DbSimple is a database abstraction library which provides an extremely laconic and handy interface for practical usage in PHP 4/5 scripts. Its usage is much easier than most of other popular abstraction libraries (like ADODB, PEAR DB, and PDO). "Query execution" and "result fetching" operations are joined thogether and complemented by powerful placeholder support (including list-based placeholders) and various fetching modes. The library supports a unique and very convenient method to build dynamic SQL queries (conditional macro-blocks).
pthread-lib is a set of pthread wrapper functions, a thread manager, and a signal handler. The wrapper functions enable the programmer to create and manage sets of thread pools without knowing all the pthread internals. This includes creating, joining, and other operations. The thread manager watches and supervises the threads, checking whether they are still alive and working. The thread manager can also be assigned tasks by the programmer, either in code or by a configuration file. These tasks will be executed when the scheduled date/time occurs, and can be almost any task. The thread manager is implemented as its own thread within the main process. A single-threaded signal handler is available to catch all signals to a multi-threaded process. Instead of having every thread manage signals, this one thread handles all signals. To further enhance its functionality, the programmer is allowed to assign functions (via a pointer to a function) to any signal it may catch.
