Libxml2 is the XML C library developed for the Gnome project. The library code is portable (to Linux, Unix, Windows, embedded systems, etc.) and modular; most of the extensions can be compiled out. Libxml2 implements a number of existing standards related to markup languages, including the XML standard, Namespaces in XML, XML Base, Relax NG, RFC 2396, XPath, XPointer, HTML4, XInclude, SGML Catalogs, and XML Catalogs. In most cases, libxml tries to implement the specifications in a relatively strict way. To some extent, it provides support for the following specifications, but doesn't claim to implement them: DOM, FTP client, HTTP client, and SAX2. Support for W3C XML Schemas is in progress. It includes xmllint, a command line XML validator.
Libxslt is a C library for GNOME which allows developers to work with XSLT. It is based on libxml for XML parsing, tree manipulation, and XPath support. Also included is 'xsltproc', a command line XSLT processor. The library is written in plain C, making as few assumptions as possible, and sticking closely to ANSI C/POSIX for easy embedding. It should work on Linux, Unix, and Windows. Though not designed primarily with performances in mind, libxslt seems to be a relatively fast processor. It also include full support for the EXSLT set of extension functions as well as some common extensions present in other XSLT engines.
libview is VMware's Incredibly Exciting Widgets, a collection of GTK+ widgets used within VMware products. These widgets are the same ones used in VMware Workstation 5.0 and higher, and were considered useful enough to open source so that others could use them in their own projects. These widgets are actively developed and maintained.
GNOME Word of the Day is a GNOME applet that displays a new vocabulary word each day. No one likes to be lost in a sea of unknown words. With this applet, your vocabulary will evince perennial growth. It's a must when preparing for the SAT or GRE tests and for improving both reading comprehension and writing precision. It sits in the panel as a whole word or as a small icon. You can retrieve words from a selection of online sources and automatically cycle to a new source every few hours.
