The GNOME NetworkManager is a set of co-operative tools that make networking simple and straightforward. Whether wireless or wired, NetworkManager allows you to quickly move from one network to another: once a network has been configured and joined once, it can be detected and re-joined automatically at a later date. It was designed to auto-detect as much information as possible, seamlessly switches connections when necessary, and provides immediate feedback of the network state to users and applications.
Kst is a fast real-time large-dataset viewing and plotting tool with built-in data analysis functionality. It contains many powerful built-in features and is expandable with plugins and extensions. It features powerful keyboard and mouse plot manipulation, a large selection of built-in plotting and data manipulation functions (such as histograms, equations, and power spectra), built-in filtering and curve fitting capabilities, a convenient command-line interface, a powerful graphical user interface with non-modal dialogs for an optimized workflow, support for several popular data formats, extended annotation objects similar to vector graphics applications, and high-quality export to bitmap or vector formats,
Flac2All is a multi-threaded script that will convert your collection of FLAC files into either Ogg Vorbis, MP3 (with the Lame encoder), or FLAC, complete with any tags and identical file/folder structure. The script has been stable for about a year now, and it has been known to saturate 8-core machines with parallel conversions. It is useful for people with with large FLAC collections who also want a lossy version for portable media players. If wanted, the script can perform updates by skipping already converted files. It has only been tested on Linux, but it should work without alteration on the other Unix systems with bash and the required dependencies.
TorTV is a build of the Tor Project maintained to run on TV devices and set-top boxes so that anyone with such a household appliance can contribute to strengthen the Tor network. TorTV does not reimplement nor modify the Tor source code in any way; it provides binary builds for embedded targets and scripted bundles to facilitate their installation. So far, it targets WDTV devices running WDLXTV, but aims to grow to support more hardware in future.
StressItOut is a hardware stressing and testing program for GNU/Linux. Its main purpose is to strain the computer to ensure the hardware is in good state. There are several test modules: CPU load, memory test, 2D OpenGL painting, 3D OpenGL rendering, hard drives, optical drives, serial ports transmission, and parallel ports. Support for lm-sensors is in the works. This software, when ready for release, will mainly be aimed at the QA departments of hardware manufacturing companies, who need to ensure their newly produced machines perform correctly under heavy workloads, and that all their components work as expected.
KMid2 plays MIDI and karaoke files to hardware MIDI devices or software synthesizers. It supports playlists, MIDI mappers, tempo (speed) control, volume and pitch (transpose) controls, and configurable character encoding, font, and color for lyrics. The graphic views include a rhythm view (visual metronome), a channels window with solo/muting controls and instrument selectors, and a piano player window (pianola).
The ROHC library provides an easy and robust way for applications to reduce their bandwidth usage on network links with limited capacity or expensive costs. Headers of network packets are compressed with the ROHC protocol and algorithms. The ROHC protocol is very efficient for compressing VoIP streams which use RTP as a transport protocol. ROHC is also suitable for compressing IP-only (IPv4 or IPv6) flows, UDP flows, and many others.
