BAD (BAckup Daemon) "watches" a directory and copies any files or directories moved/copied into it to another "backup" directory automatically using inotify. It will automatically generates hashes for files using the md5 hashing algorithm, and stores them in a file for quick and easy integrity checking. It will log (mostly) everything it's doing, and makes it very convenient to grep for certain messages using multiple logging levels which the user can set to get the desired output. It has its own built-in uninstaller which will delete any and all files it has created (besides the user's watch and backup directories).
Libcolumbus is a small error tolerant search engine designed to deal with noisy data and typos. It will power the searches in the next generation of Ubuntu's HUD system as well as other searches. It has a fast implementation of the Levenshtein distance algorithm, which allows it to correct errors such as added and dropped letters (e.g. 'bar' -> 'bard'), changed letters ('ctr' -> 'car') and translations ('acr' -> 'car'). It also allows the user to customize the error values. Libcolumbus is designed to be small, efficient and easy to embed. It is programmed in C++ but also provides C and Python APIs.
The NSCA-ng package provides a client-server pair which makes the Nagios command pipe accessible to remote systems, with per-client passwords and fine-grained authorization control. This allows for submission of passive check results, downtimes, and many other commands to Nagios (or compatible monitoring solutions). Check results of arbitrary size and multiline plugin output are supported.
KeyBox is a Web-based SSH console for executing commands and managing multiple systems simultaneously. It allows you to share terminal commands and upload files to all your systems. Once the sessions have been opened you can select a single system or any combination on which to run your commands. Also, additional system administrators can be added and their terminal sessions and history can be audited.
PyDate is a very simple Python/Tk based tool to adjust the system date and time conveniently from an easy to use graphical interface. It is primarily intended to be used with minimal desktop environments like IceWm that don't provide such tools themselves. KDE or Gnome libraries are not required.
bash argsparse is a high-level argument parsing library for bash. Its purpose is to replace the option parsing and usage describing functions commonly rewritten in all scripts. Its features include automatic help message generation, user input checking (type checking, enumerations, etc.), and option properties (mandatory options, option aliases, options excluding each others, etc.). It is implemented for bash version 4. Prior versions of bash will fail at interpreting the code.
jMonkeyEngine is a game engine made for developers who want to create 3D games following modern technology standards. The framework is programmed entirely in Java, and aimed at wide accessibility and fast deployment to desktop, Web, and mobile platforms. It is not a visual “RPG Maker” or a drag-and-drop “FPS mod”. If you are comfortable writing Java code, you can rely on jMonkeyEngine as your next 3D game’s foundation.
