The Launcher is an innovative GNOME panel applet or stand-alone application launcher automatically adapting to your habits. The ultimate goal is to make it possible to run any application with as few clicks as possible. This means tracking your favorite applications, and not forcing you to mark or organize them by hand. Preferences change with time, and The Launcher responds to that automatically. It delivers a simple, clean, and usable interface with advanced features like 'search as you type' and 'smart search', and requires zero configuration effort. It should be especially handy on touch screens and in keyboard-only scenarios.
METSlib is an object-oriented metaheuristics framework in C++ designed to make implementing or adapting models easy. The model is modular: all the implemented search algorithms can be applied to the same model. METSlib implements the basics of some metaheuristics algorithms, such as Random Restart Local Search, Variable Neighborhood Search, Iterated Local Search, Simulated Annealing, and Tabu Search. For each algorithm, you must implement an objective function, a neighborhood (move manager), and some moves. Tabu Search is one of the fastest ways to generate near-optimal solutions to a wide range of hard combinatorial optimization problems.
Aseba is an event-based architecture for distributed control of mobile robots. It targets integrated multi-processor robots or groups of single-processor units, real or simulated. The core of aseba is a lightweight virtual machine tiny enough to run even on microcontrollers. Robots are programmed in a user-friendly scripting language using a cozy integrated development environment.
SAOTrace is a suite of software designed to simulate the as-built performance of grazing-angle X-ray optics using the ray-tracing approach. It is derived from portions of the NASA OSAC (Optical Surface Analysis Code) software suite. It can model nested conical as well as flat optical designs, and includes the ability to model arbitrary support structures and baffles. It can model non-ideal multi-layer reflective coatings as well as scattering from the optical surfaces.
