The Easysoft ODBC-Access Driver is an ODBC driver that supports both the MDB (Access 2000–2003 and Office Access 2007) and ACCDB (Office Access 2007 and later) database formats. It provides read-write access to Access databases for Linux/Unix applications. You do not need to change where your database file is located, as it supports shared locations such as a Windows or Samba share. It uses Access’ locking file mechanism and prevents users from opening a database if another user has the database opened for exclusive access, again mirroring the Access front-end’s behavior for seamless integration. It supports encrypted/encoded .mdb files, which is an Access security feature that protects Access data from unauthorized viewing.
Chef is a systems integration framework, built to bring the benefits of configuration management to your entire infrastructure. With Chef, you can manage your servers by writing code, not by running commands (via Cookbooks), integrate tightly with your applications, databases, LDAP directories, and more (via Libraries), and easily configure applications that require knowledge about your entire infrastructure ("What systems are running my application?" "What is the current master database server?").
rlimit is a program that lets you run processes with system resource limits set. It can be used by software developers and testers to test that software will run correctly in resource restricted environments. It is also useful for software which would otherwise consume excessive resources such as programs that used 100% CPU, set their own priority levels, or consume too much memory. This is basically a command line interface to the system functions getrlimit() and setrlimit().
SQLCipher provides fully transparent encryption of SQLite databases. SQLCipher is a specialized build of the SQLite database that performs transparent and on-the-fly encryption. Using SQLCipher, an application uses the standard SQLite API to manipulate tables using SQL. Behind the scenes, the library silently manages security, making sure that data pages are encrypted and decrypted as they are written to and read from storage. SQLCipher relies on the peer-reviewed OpenSSL library for several encryption requirements, including the AES-256 algorithm, pseudo random number generation, and PBKDF2 key derivation.
Shannon is a general purpose stream-oriented programming language; it is concise and yet feature rich. Streams, FIFOs, and Unix shell-style pipes are first-class concepts in the language. You can connect functions and FIFOs within your program similar to the way you connect processes with pipes in the Unix shell. These constructs in Shannon, however, are highly efficient as no true multitasking is involved, and at the same time they allow you to write more concise and readable code for chained data processing. State is a special type of function that returns a reference to its own local data and any nested functions it may have. In effect, states implement classes in terms of OOP, and yet classes per se aren't part of the language. A special type of modules marked as "persistent" is an effective replacement for databases and SQL. This allows you to access persistent shared data using native Shannon constructs, eliminating the need for an extra query language. Intuitive and minimalist syntax and semantics are used. Particularly, "minimalist semantics" means less things to remember and more possibilities. Shannon is statically-typed, although it provides dynamic typing facilities as well.
Ametys is a powerful Web CMS used by many institutions of higher education and government, but also industries and SMEs. It is known for its ergonomic design which promotes ease of use, its social Web functionality, and the ability to manage a large number of users. It makes content publishing accessible for the non-programmer and provides an easy editorial interface very similar to Microsoft Office applications.
Syncless is an experimental, lightweight, non-blocking (asynchronous) client and server socket network communication library implemented in Stackless Python 2.6. It contains an asynchronous DNS resolver (using dnspython) and an HTTP server capable of serving WSGI applications. It aims to be a coroutine-based alternative of event-driven networking engines (such as Twisted and FriendFeed's Tornado). It is already about that fast, but it has fewer features and is less stable now.
CorsixTH is a clone of Theme Hospital. As computers evolve, we risk losing some classic games. Bullfrog's Theme Hospital, published in 1997, is a classic simulation game, but getting it to run natively on modern operating systems is getting progressively harder. CorsixTH aims to reimplement the game engine of Theme Hospital, and to be able to load the original game data files. This means that you will need a purchased copy of Theme Hospital, or a copy of the demo, in order to use CorsixTH. After most of the original engine has been reimplemented, the project will serve as a base from which extensions to the original game can be made.
