SILGraphite (formerly OpenGraphite) is a project within SIL's Non-Roman Script Initiative and Language Software Development groups to provide extensible cross-platform rendering capabilities for complex non-Roman writing systems. It consists of a rule-based programming language, Graphite Description Language (GDL), that can be used to describe the behavior of a writing system, a compiler for that language, and a rendering engine that can serve as the backend of a text processing application. SILGraphite renders TrueType fonts that have been extended by means of compiling a GDL program. It is currently being integrated into Gecko/Mozilla through the SILA project, a GNU/Linux port is also underway, and there are plans for OpenOffice.org and Abiword integration.
Poedit is a gettext translation (.po file) editor for Unix, Windows, and OS X. It aims to provide translators with a simple, easy to use user interface with all the essential tools such as spellchecker or translation memory. It can also be used to manage translations for small projects.
The Heirloom Toolchest is a collection of standard Unix utilities. It was derived from original Unix material released as open source by Caldera and Sun, and contains multiple versions of each utility corresponding to SVID3/SVR4, SVID4/SVR4.2MP, POSIX.2-1992/SUSV2, POSIX.1-2001/SUSV3, and 4BSD (SVR4 /usr/ucb). It processes lines of arbitrary length and in many cases binary input data, supports characters in UTF-8 and many East Asian encodings, and contains more than 100 individual utilities including bc, cpio, diff, ed, file, find, grep, man, nawk, oawk, pax, ps, sed, sort, spell, and tar. Extensive documentation is included.
Traditional vi is derived from the 4BSD source and includes support for modern operating systems, 8-bit input, multi-byte character encodings like UTF-8, and features demanded by POSIX.2. It contains few additions beyond this, so it is of interest for those who look for a small but well-defined vi implementation close to that of most commercial Unix systems. It also has some features to cope with primitive terminals or slow connections.
