dhcpy6d delivers IPv6 addresses for DHCPv6 clients, which can be identified by DUID, hostname, or MAC address, as in the good old IPv4 days. Addresses may be generated randomly, by range, or by arbitrary ID or MAC address. Clients can get more than one address, leases and client configuration can be stored in databases, and DNS can be updated dynamically.
xlife is a laboratory for experimenting with cellular automata. It supports loadable rulesets and palettes, different topologies, and up to 256-state cellular automata. It has rules and patterns for Life, Brian's Brain, Perrier's Loops, Langton's Ants and Loops, Wireworld, E.F. Codd's 1975 UCC automaton, some Prisoner's Dilemma games, and many others. It is very fast for step-by-step mode, bounded grid, and chaotic patterns. It has several unique features: a historical mode, a pseudocolor mode, and n-state statistics. It has been developed since 1989. The modern version of Xlife began its history in 2011.
mdp stands for "Mot de Passe", which means "password" in French. It wraps GnuPG for encryption and deals with all the small details of generating, managing, and fetching your passwords. It is similar to many other programs, but differentiates itself with simplicity (not button-driven simplicity, but with a Unix less-is-more style). For example, beyond the use of GnuPG for encryption, it lets you use your own editor to manage your passwords, categorize them, and delete them. In order to avoid passwords lingering on your screen, the results from the queries are displayed through a custom pager which is cleared after a customizable timeout (defaulting to ten seconds).
The Interplanetary Overlay Network (ION) software distribution is an implementation of Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN) architecture as described in Internet RFC 4838. It includes implementations of the DTN Bundle Protocol, the Licklider Transmission Protocol, and two CCSDS application protocols that have been adapted to run over the BP/LTP stack: the CCSDS File Delivery Protocol and Asynchronous Message Service.
SimGrid is a toolkit which provides core functionalities for the simulation of distributed applications in heterogeneous distributed environments. The specific goal of the project is to facilitate research in the area of parallel and distributed large scale systems such as Grids, P2P systems, and clouds. Its use cases encompass heuristic evaluation, application prototyping, or even real application development and tuning.
Barman (backup and recovery manager) for PostgreSQL is an administration tool for disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers. It allows remote backups of multiple servers in business-critical environments and helps DBAs during the recovery phase. Barman's most-wanted features include backup catalogs, retention policies, remote recovery, archiving, and compression of WAL files and backups.
Exim4U is a Web-based user interface and integrated software configuration for the Exim message transfer agent (MTA). Using any modern Web browser, you can use it to manage Exim email domains, user accounts, aliases, forwarders, and much more. Exim4U is a derivative work of the Virtual Exim (Vexim) project.
