libposix is an impementation of the core functionality of all Unix systems. It is a full, cross-platform implementation of the POSIX 2008 standard. It is meant to replace existing implementations of a Unix system's core libraries. It is an exact implementation of POSIX 2008 and nothing else (no extensions, no previous POSIX versions). However, it works well with possible extensions to the core system functionallity (for example, GNU or BSD).
GNU Recutils is a set of tools and libraries to access human-editable text-based databases called recfiles. A recfile contains data structured as a sequence of records. The rec format supports data integrity with the usage of record descriptors (keys, mandatory fields, field types, etc.) as well as the ability of record fields to refer to other records. Despite its simplicity, recfiles can be used to store medium-sized databases. The GNU recutils suite comprises a texinfo manual describing the Rec format, a C library (librec) providing a rich set of functions to access rec files, a set of C utilities that can be used in shell scripts and in the command line to operate on rec files, and an Emacs mode (rec-mode).
Meep is a free finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) simulation software package to model electromagnetic systems. It supports distributed-memory parallel simulations, nonlinear, anisotropic, and dispersive media, PML absorbing boundaries, and 1D/2D/3D and cylindrical problems. It is completely scriptable from either C++ or a Scheme (GNU Guile) interface.
Crabgrass is social networking, group collaboration, and network organizing Web application. It consists of a solid suite of group collaboration tools such as private wikis, task lists, a file repository, and decision making tools. Work is currently being done on a large user interface overhaul, better social networking tools, blogs, and event calendars, as well as better support for collaboration and decision making among independent groups.
Loomes' Nested Set is a class that can be used to manage a tree of information stored in a database. It can perform several types of operations to manipulate a hierarchy of nodes that are stored in a database as table records. Currently, it can insert a root node, insert a node that is child of a given parent, delete a branch of nodes under a given node, delete a single node, rename a node, move nodes, check whether the root node exists, and retrieve the whole tree of nodes.
MeeGo is a Linux-based mobile and embedded operating system. It brings together the Moblin project, headed up by Intel, and Maemo, by Nokia, into a single open source activity. MeeGo currently targets platforms such as netbooks and entry-level desktops, handheld computing and communications devices, in-vehicle infotainment devices, connected TVs, and media phones. All of these platforms have common user requirements in communications, application, and Internet services in a portable or small form factor. The MeeGo project will continue to expand platform support as new features are incorporated and new form factors emerge in the market.
GNU Mach is the microkernel upon which a GNU Hurd system is based. It provides an Inter Process Communication (IPC) mechanism which the Hurd uses to define interfaces for implementing in a distributed multi-server fashion the services a traditional operating system kernel provides. Mach is particularly well-suited for SMP and network cluster techniques. Thread support is provided at the kernel level, and the kernel itself takes advantage of that. Network transparency at the IPC level makes resources of the system available across machine boundaries.
