Zero Install is a decentralized cross-distribution software installation system. It allows software developers to publish programs directly from their own Web sites, while supporting features familiar from centralized distribution repositories such as shared libraries, automatic updates, and digital signatures. It is intended to complement, rather than replace, the operating system's package management. 0install packages never interfere with those provided by the distribution.
Gallery Mage is a client side photo gallery management system designed to work with online gallery display scripts such as SPGM. Using Gallery Mage, one can select, caption, rotate, crop, resize, and upload photos taken with a digital camera to an online photo gallery. The rotate, crop, and resize parameters are stored as text data with the images, and the operations are only performed on a copy of the photo while exporting, thus preserving the original picture files. Gallery Mage provides abstraction from the online display software.
