Kalisko is an application framework. Its modular architecture allows applications to easily be built from several individual components. The current development focuses on the implementation of an IRC client, though other kinds of software are possible in the future. Features (already implemented modules) include: a small core application with a simple but powerful module system that runs on Windows and Linux; a simple IRC client using GTK+ for visualization; scripting support in Python, PHP, and Lua; a Lua console; a PHP console (Linux only); a powerful serializable data structure that can be stored in memory or written to files; a cross calling interface (xcall) that allows functions to be called and defined in and from any language; and many more.
Growcode is a program for producing object models for the .NET platform. Given a set of simple C#-style class definitions, Growcode will produce a .NET assembly containing those classes enhanced with the following features: undo/redo support for all changes to the object model; consistent event mechanism for changes to fields of objects; serialization of the model to and from XML; and double dispatch support for polymorphic operations.
ARP Neighbor Cache Fingerprinter is a tool that provides a mechanism for remote operating system detection by extrapolating characteristics of the target system's underlying neighbor cache and general ARP behavior. Given the non-existence of any standard specification for how the neighbor cache should behave, several differences in network stack implementations can be used for unique identification. The main disadvantage of this tool versus traditional fingerprinting is that because it's based on a Layer 2 protocol instead of a Layer 3 protocol, the target machine that is being tested must reside on the same Ethernet broadcast domain (usually the same physical network).
MIDAS is a data acquisition system for small and medium size particle and nuclear experiments in physics running under Linux, Windows, and VxWorks. It contains all necessary software to gather data on front-end computers from VME, FASTBUS, and CAMAC, analyze data using PAW and ROOT, and store data on disks and tape. It contains a slow control system with history capabilities and a Web-based user frontend.
The Cross Platform Toolkit Library(xtklib) is a C++ based framework for highly object-oriented cross-platform programming. In particular, the library provides a full abstraction layer between its API and the main services offered by the underlying operating system (threads, processes, GUI, filesystem, etc.) plus a set of generic utilities (strings, data structures, etc.).It makes full use of all features of C++ like RTTI, templates, and exceptions, thus obtaining a strongly object-oriented design with a Java-like sensation. The library is composed of two main modules: "Base" and "Widgets". The target operating systems are Windows and Unix (Linux and BSD) with a plan to move towards other systems.
Fitz is a window decoration for KDE that allows you to work (or play) faster. Unlike other decorations, it does not have a title bar above the window. Instead, it puts the buttons in the menu bar. As a result, it lets you get to a menu item by ramming your mouse into the top of the screen. If you click on the window frame, the mouse will jump down into the middle of the menu bar and Fitz will generate a click. This effectively puts the menu bar at the top of the screen like Mac OS does.
