Chakra Linux is a Linux distribution that combines the simplicity of Arch Linux with KDE. It is fast, user-friendly, and extremely powerful. It can be used as a live CD or installed to hard disk. Chakra is currently under heavy and active development. It features a graphical installer and automatic hardware configuration. Chakra provides a modular and tweaked package set of the KDE Software Compilation with a lot of useful additions. It features the concept of half-rolling releases and freshly cooked packages and bundles. It is designed for people who really want to learn something about Linux or don't want to deal with administrative overhead.
Database Deployment Manager (DDM) is a desktop oriented multi-platform database design tool that allows database administrators and programmers to create database structures (using an object oriented methodology) and deploy them into an existing database. The tool allows creation of diagrams to identify basic relations between the defined structures. You can import tables from various databases, either by fully reversing a database or just picking tables from various databases and injecting them into your solution. You can browse the databases and execute SQL queries on them. There is a unique SELECT query builder that makes the building of queries very easy without having to write a single SQL statement; just using point and click with the mouse.
Emergent is a neural network simulator with a built-in scripting language which allows for the creation and analysis of complex, sophisticated models of the brain in the world. Networks and all of their state variables are visually inspected in 3D, allowing quick "visual regression" of network dynamics and robot behavior. Emergent is a direct descendant of the PDP and PDP++ neural network packages.
The Gluon project is an open framework for creating and distributing games, supporting the flow of the idea all the way from the author to the player of the finished game. The current goal for the first stable release is to create games using 2D graphics. The reasoning behind this is that the niche for this type of visual is very large and so far untapped by specialized tools. In the world of 3D games there are solutions such as Unity3D, which provide a distribution system, but in the 2D game development world there are no tools to provide a complete ecosystem for creation, distribution, and feedback gathering. The three main audiences of Gluon are game creators, game players, and application programmers. Each of these are a user of one of the tools.
KDE Plasma Active is a user interface for all types of tablets, smartphones, and touch computing devices, such as settop boxes, smart TVs, home automation, and in-vehicle infotainment. It is a joint project by the KDE community, basysKom, and open-slx. Its goals are a fast embedded UX platform with minimal memory requirements, customizable and modular to support different form factors, and an interface which adapts as users change activities.
Marble is a Virtual Globe and World Atlas that you can use to learn more about Earth: you can pan and zoom around, and you can look up places and roads. A mouse click on a place label will provide the respective Wikipedia article. It's also possible to measure distances between locations or watch the current cloud cover. Marble offers different thematic maps: a classroom-style topographic map, a satellite view, street map, earth at night, and temperature and precipitation maps. All maps include a custom map key, so it can also be used as an educational tool for use in classrooms. For educational purposes, you can also change the date and time and watch how the starry sky and the twilight zone on the map change. Marble also features multiple projections: choose between a flat map ("Plate carré"), Mercator, or the globe.
