The ax25-tools package contains the tools that you need to get going with AX.25 for Linux. AX.25 is a network protocol that is used by hamradio operators across packet radio wireless links. This package contains the network tools to configure hamradio interfaces and some of the hamradio specific network daemons. In addition to programs that understand AX.25, they also work with ROSE and Net/ROM hamradio protocols.
ftp-ssl is similar to the standard FTP client and it interoperates with normal ftpd, but it uses SSL authentication and encryption. It checks if the other side is also talking SSL, and if not it falls back to the normal FTP protocol. Advantages over normal FTP include encryption of passwords and transmitted data, preventing network sniffers from acquiring secret information (most notably passwords).
linux-ftdp-ssl is the netkit ftp server with encryption support. ftpd-ssl replaces normal ftpd using SSL authentication and encryption. It operates together with normal ftp. It checks if the other side is also talking SSL, if not it falls back to normal ftp protocol. Advantages over normal ftp(d) are that your passwords and the data you send will not go in cleartext over the line, and nobody can get it with tcpdump or similar tools.
Paranormal is an extremely customizable visualization plugin for XMMS, based (conceptually) on Winamp's AVS plugin. Its goal is to be as flexible as possible by providing a number of 'actuators' that perform various tasks involved in generating an image. These actuators can then be combined to create a nearly unlimited number of effects.
libclfll++ takes advantage of the abstract Library Load framework in the CoreLinux libclfw++ library by providing management of loading Linux shared libraries. Application developers define function objects as wrappers and can then dynamically load the functions. It is very useful for implementing a framework for plug-ins.
