Bcfg2 helps system administrators produce a consistent, reproducible, and verifiable description of their environment, and offers visualization and reporting tools to aid in day-to-day administrative tasks. It is based on an operational model in which the specification can be used to validate and optionally change the state of clients, but in a feature unique to bcfg2 the client's response to the specification can also be used to assess the completeness of the specification. Using this feature, bcfg2 provides an objective measure of how good a job an administrator has done in specifying the configuration of client systems. Bcfg2 is therefore built to help administrators construct an accurate, comprehensive specification. Bcfg2 has been designed from the ground up to support gentle reconciliation between the specification and current client states. It is designed to gracefully cope with manual system modifications. Bcfg2 can also enable the construction of complex change management and deployment strategies.
BitRock InstallBuilder allows you to create easy-to-use multiplatform installers for Linux (x86/PPC/s390/x86_64/Itanium), Windows, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Solaris (x86/Sparc), IRIX, AIX, and HP-UX applications. The generated application installers have a native look-and-feel and no external dependencies, and can be run in GUI, text, and unattended modes. In addition to self-contained installers, the installation tool is also able to generate standalone RPM packages.
Ice Sound Manager was designed to ease the management of sound events, sound themes, and the IceSound server in the IceWM window manager. It is also intended to be an improvement upon the noble but primitive icesndcfg. The main improvements over icesndcfg include a support for sound event "themes", more comprehensive help, easy management and configuration of the IceSound server, a cleaner GUI interface, automatic starting of the IceSound server, and a more conservative approach to disk space usage.
IcePref2 is an updated, overhauled, improved, and perfected version of the original IcePref (which was abandoned by the original author). This new version includes many new features and bugfixes, and is a sub-project of the IceWM Control Panel project. It is optimized for IceWM 1.2.2 and better.
IceWM Control Panel is a full-featured, GTK-based control panel for IceWM. It features an IceWM theme designer, Ice Sound Manager (for sound events), IcePref2, and tools to manage desktop wallpaper, cursors, keys, window options, and more. IceWM Control Panel has a familiar, Windows-like Control Panel user interface.
Installwatch is a simple utility which keeps track of which files are created and modified during the installation of a new program. It's fast and easy to use. It doesn't require a "pre-install" phase because it monitors processes while they run. Installwatch works with every dynamically linked ELF program, by intercepting system calls that cause file system alterations.
JExpress is a Java installer builder and auto-updater. It gives you your choice of a standalone installer, including both native and cross platform installers and updaters for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Solaris, or a Java Web Start one-click install. You create your installer quickly with your choice of a simple wizard or a powerful advanced interface, both included. You can bundle the exact JVM you want with your installer. The auto-updater gives you a continuous revenue stream after the sale. Your software is always up-to-date, so your customers have fewer problems. You also get all the features you expect in a top end installer. Your Java application becomes a native program just like any other. On Windows it's an EXE, on Mac OS X an app bundle, etc. If you need something really special, you can customize your installer by adding simple Java classes. You can even get a source license at a reasonable price.
