wyoGuide is a tutorial, a collection of guidelines for building cross-platform applications with a well-designed, consistent look and feel. It gives ideas and advice on how an application and its GUI could and should be written. Development with these guidelines gives the GUI of an application a standard set of base functionality. wyoGuide also provides sample code for each guideline written in C++ using the wxWidgets (formerly wxWindows) framework. For a seasoned developer it shouldn't be difficult to adapt these guidelines to other languages or frameworks.
wyoEditor is a cross-platform editor based on the Scintilla editor component. The editor has the usual features like fast editing, unlimited undo/redo, syntax colouring, and folding for many different programming languages. It also has a class browser, currently only for C++, and keeps the class/function display updated. The editor allows editing of files in tabbed notebook pages and/or separate top level windows. It supports context-sensitive help of any kind of documentation (e.g. programming framework descriptions) if provided as help files. The editor conforms to the wyoGuide guidelines using the wxWidgets framework.
Cvs-Brancher establishes a tagged branch in a CVS module and schedules a merge and build to occur at a later date/time. It might be used to roll out Website changes at odd hours, such as posting a press release in time for the start of the business day on the east coast, or to roll out cfengine changes to a data center during the night, to minimize the impact of downtime.
D-BUS is a message bus system; a simple way for applications to talk to one another. It supplies both a system daemon (for events such as "new hardware device added" or "printer queue changed") and a per- user-login-session daemon (for general IPC needs among user applications). Also, the message bus is built on top of a general one-to-one message passing framework, which can be used by any two apps to communicate directly (without going through the message bus daemon).
Gnome Storage provides a document store intended to replace the filesystem for handling user data, an API for directly accessing Storage to utilize its advanced features, a GnomeVFS module for more traditional access, and a natural language component for generating searches across a store.
