ADODB is a set of advanced PHP database abstraction classes. It supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, Interbase/Firebird, Informix, Sybase SQL Anywhere, Oracle, MS SQL 7 and 2000, SAP DB, Sybase, DB2, FrontBase, Foxpro, Access, Netezza, LDAP, ODBTP, ADO, and generic ODBC. A metatype system is built in, making it possible to figure out that types such as CHAR, TEXT, and STRING are equivalent in different databases. It also features portable database creation, database-backed session support (with encryption), SQL performance monitoring, and database health checks.
AutoOpts is an integrated part of AutoGen. Based on a very simple option description file, it will process configuration files, environment variables, command line options, text strings passed by client programs, and will make the results easily accessible to the client program. It will also produce a man page and the info-doc invoking section automatically.
JSAP (Java Simple Argument Parser) not only syntactically validates your program's commandline arguments, but it converts those arguments into objects you specify. There's a pretty big (and growing) list of return types suppored by JSAP, including Integers, Floats, Dates, URLs, and even java.awt.Colors; you can also add your own in a matter of minutes. Cascading configuration files can provide arguments not supplied at the command line, and a custom ANT task is included to generate a JSAP class based on your commandline configuration.
GNUlpr version 1.0 is a complete printing system based on LPR, and provides support for printer-specific options, GUI tools, and autoconfiguration. The 1.1 tree is a completely re-thought printing system. Rather than creating an all-powerful spooling daemon, it constructs a pipeline of "filter" programs to perform tasks (spooling, data stream type conversion, authentication, network protocols, etc.).
Verse is a network protocol and client/server application architecture for multiuser realtime distributed 3D graphics applications. It uses a lightweight server to store world data, and then relies on clients to connect and use the data in various ways. Verse uses subdivision surfaces as its single geometric primitive, which both conserves bandwidth and allows very good scalability and visual quality on modern 3D hardware.
