SffTools consists of SffToBmp, a little utility that converts Structured Fax Files to BMP, PBM, JPEG, or single- and multipage TIFF format, and SffView, a GUI viewer for those files. The tools should be especially useful to people who are faxing with ISDN cards because the CAPI interface of these cards generates such files. CAPI support for Linux is available for the active card AVM B1 and the passive card AVM Fritz!.
The datalink library allows sending information to the Timex DataLink watches. The original datalink library supports the model 150 and possibly the model 70 watch. This version has been extended to work with the DataLink Ironman Triathlon watch. It has been tested with the Linux SVGAlib output on the Ironman watch only, other output devices and other watches may or may not work, I have no reports either way. The display must be a CRT display (not a LCD).
masqidentd is an Ident daemon for Linux systems that use IP masquerading. It implements the recommendations in RFC1413. It also has the ability to forward Ident requests from a client to a machine sitting behind the masquerade service. Users also have the ability to override the default Ident response. This program is most useful for people who use IRC using mIRC or Pirch behind IP masquerade. masqidentd is intended for use with ipchains only.
sml/nj (Standard ML of New Jersey) consists of a compiler, compilation manager, and libraries for Standard ML. Included are CML (Concurrent ML) and eXene (a toolkit for X based on CML). The compiler produces efficient code for most popular architectures (Intel x86, Sparc, Alpha, Mips, HP-PA, PowerPC) and runs under Unix, Linux, or Windows (95,98,NT).
World Foundry is a 3D level game engine and asset production pathway with over 170,000 lines of code. It was originaly created as a commercial product, but is now being released under the GPL. The engine was designed from the beginning to be cross platform, and ran on Windows (DirectX, GL), and the Sony Playstation. The production pathway ran on Windows, and extended 3DStudio Max to be our level editor. The engine is currently being ported to Linux (it runs, but needs work), with plans to port the production pathway as well. Developers are wanted to help with this effort.
audio-entropyd feeds the /dev/random device with entropy data read from an audio device. The audio data is not copied as is, but first 'de-biased' and analyzed to determine how many bits of entropy are in it. This program is useful for systems doing many cryptographic tasks like VPN endpoints or GPG clients; it helps prevent the /dev/random device from being depleted and blocking reads.
