LRZIP is a compression program and library that can achieve very high compression ratios and speed when used with large files using unlimited sized compression windows. It uses the combined compression algorithms of zpaq and lzma for maximum compression, lzo for maximum speed, and the long range redundancy reduction of rzip. It is designed to scale with increases with RAM size, improving compression further. A choice of either size or speed optimizations allows for either better compression than even lzma can provide, or better speed than gzip, but with bzip2 sized compression levels. It also has high grade password protected encryption and full STDIN/STDOUT support.
coastal-qt is a small collection of Qt 4/5 desktop applications built around a small Qt extension library. The library mostly focuses on missing features and services like OSD desktop notifications (with DBUS bindings) and offers some convenience classes for Qt. The current applications include a GUI man page viewer, a search tool, and a desktop user notification service daemon with multicast chat.
ntdisp, short for NtD In System Programming, is a system for programming LPC and STM32 (and possibly other) embedded devices. It provides three different frontends, a GObject-based library (for developers), a commandline utility (for computer geeks), and a GTK+3 frontend (for less geeky users).
zpub is a server to collaboratively work on DocBook-based documentation. Editors modify the XML sources with their preferred editor and submit their changes via Subversion. zpub renders the files centrally to various output formats, optionally notifies other editors, provides an archive of all previous revisions of the document, and supports a simple sign-off workflow. The documentation and user interface is currently only available in German.
Ceph is a distributed network file system designed to provide excellent performance, reliability, and scalability (from terabytes to exabytes). Data is stored in the form of "objects" (variable length, named chunks of data) in a distributed and fault tolerant cluster of OSDs (object storage devices--servers running the Ceph OSD daemon). Metadata (the file system namespace) is managed by an independent cluster of metadata servers (MDSs), which dynamically repartitions the directory hierarchy in response to the current workload.
Libpointmatcher is a modular "Iterative Closest Point" library, useful for robotics and computer vision. This library is designed with modularity and performance in mind. It provides building blocks to construct various ICP chains often seen in research. These chains can be tuned without any recompilation, and new modules can be added without modifying the core of the library.
0 A.D. (pronounced "zero ey-dee") is a cross-platform real-time strategy (RTS) game of ancient warfare. It's a historically-based war/economy game that allows players to relive or rewrite the history of ancient civilizations, each depicted at their peak of economic growth and military prowess.
DRM-SEQ is a basic drum machine and sampler. It allows realtime pattern creation with customizable samples and tracks. It has an adjustable BPM, swing factor, time signature, and eight banks for patterns, with intuitive key bindings and save/load capabilities for a live environment.
Plgen (Playlist Generator) is a tool that sorts files for MP3 players in a user defined order. Cheap MP3 players often come with no playlist capabilities. In addition these players often make use of the FAT16/32 file system, leading to confusion when the playing order is not alphabetical on the device even though it is shown as alphabetical in the file explorer.
