OpenLMS is a Learning Management System (LMS) made at the Department of Geography, NTNU. The system is a fully functional LMS with support for group collaboration, file sharing, distribution of lectures, and other supporting features. It is a good tool for distributing lecture notes to groups of students, and for faciliating collaboration for groups of students and teachers.
BitTorrent++ is a client for the BitTorrent peer-to-peer file sharing solution. Based on the original BitTorrent software, it is also written in Python using wxPython for the GUI, thus allowing it to run on Win32 as well as Linux-like platforms. It improves (or will improve) many parts of the original software, like downloading of multiple files at once, configuration of upload and download speeds, as well as other behaviours. The GUI and usability is also to be improved greatly.
Mutella supports all the functionality required to participate as a full-featured node in the Gnutella network (which implies support for file search, download, and sharing). It is optimized for a high-bandwidth connection where it sets standards for the server performance and stability, but it can also run on a modest-speed line. It features real multiple search support, passive search (all query-reply packets are checked against local search list), automatic re-submission of the queries, unlimited download retry, automatic search for alternative locations when download fails to start immediately, auto-get function for broken downloads, and much more.
Event Horizon (EVH) is a Web-based application which facilitates the secure transfer of files. Originally designed to replace FTP transfers, EVH currently allows uploads via HTTP and can also handle files uploaded via FTP. All file uploads are assigned an expiration period, after which the file is permanently removed from the system. This allows for automatic cleanup as well, keeping the underlying filesystem in tip-top shape.
LibreSource is a versatile collaborative platform and software forge. It is adapted to the collaborative software development, groupware, community leading, e-archiving and Web publishing. On a single server, LibreSource can host several projects, several groups of users, and grant fine-grained access to the resources. Based on Java/J2EE technology, it is a modular Web server that users can customize online by combining resources and rights: wiki pages, forum, trackers, synchronizer, subversion, files, download areas, a dropbox, forms, etc.
NetMess is a peer-to-peer file sharing system. Its advantages over other p2p systems include clone detection and the ability to work through an HTTP proxy and through most firewalls (both inbound and outbound). NetMess can also run in a LAN environment, serving as a nice information sharing system for small to middle-sized companies. NetMess allows its users to search and retrieve documents without having to remember their exact location.
