The tcb suite implements the alternative password shadowing scheme on Openwall GNU/*/Linux (Owl) which allows many core system utilities (passwd(1) being the primary example) to operate with little privilege. It is being made available separately from Owl primarily for use by other distributions. This package contains three core components of the tcb suite: pam_tcb (a PAM module which supersedes pam_unix), libnss_tcb (the accompanying NSS module), and libtcb (a library for accessing tcb shadow files, used by the PAM and NSS modules as well as by user management tools on Owl).
Framework for User-Space Devices (FUSD) is a Linux framework for proxying device file callbacks into user-space, allowing device files to be implemented by daemons instead of kernel code. Despite being implemented in user-space, FUSD devices can look and act just like any other file under /dev that is implemented by kernel callbacks. A user-space device driver can do many of the things that kernel drivers cannot, such as perform a long running computation, block while waiting for an event, read files from the file system, access the network, talk to a serial port, and more.
OpenFWTK is an application proxy toolkit which inherits the ideology of TIS fwtk and maintains API backwards compatibility. The design goal is to make it simple yet powerful; no performance hacks are allowed in the code and library dependencies are reduced to a minimum. It is a true application layer filter. It features unified pluggable content inspection for the most frequently used protocols, NAC (Network Admission Control), and the ability to define fine-grained Internet access policy based on browser identification.
The TuxCap games framework is a GNU/Linux port of the PopCap games framework, which is used for professional 2D game development. It is written in C++ and supports both software and hardware accelerated drawing, comes with Python bindings, a very fast physics engine, a particle engine, a GUI widget system, and many documented examples to get you started.
NLog is a .NET logging library designed with simplicity and flexibility in mind. With NLog you can process diagnostic messages emitted from any .NET language, augment them with contextual information, format them according to your preference, and send them to one or more targets. The API (application programming interface) is similar to log4net, and the configuration is very simple. NLog uses a routing table while log4net uses a logger hierarchy with attachable ppenders. This makes NLog's configuration very easy to read and maintain.
The Platonos Projects are a group of sub projects aimed to provide Java developers with a stand-alone plugin engine as well as a pluggable Swing application framework similar to other RCP (Rich Client Platforms) available. The goal is to have an out-of-the-box runnable Swing application with the more common pieces applications contain, such as preferences, help, file I/O choosers, configuration, and more all via plugins which can be left out if not needed. Building upon the shell is very easy by simply adding plugins that provide extended behavior for existing plugins, or adding new plugins that will then be extended by other plugins.
