Adapro is a customizable multi-user word processor originally geared towards users with a learning disability or developmental disorder, such as dyslexia or autism. Hence its array of assistive features, including inline representation of words through pictograms, a virtual keypad with configurable phrase buttons, a dyslexia-friendly font, PBDQ, and high-contrast modes. The editing interface can be customized on a per-user basis, and documents produced with it can be exported to RTF for further editing in OpenOffice or other software. If Java 6 is on the system, it doesn't even require installation.
CryptEngine is a fast 3D engine for Java. It is based on OpenGL and provides components and objects allowing the description and rendering of 3D scenes. Unlike several other 3D engines, it focuses on rapid application development and makes it possible to create and render complex 3D scenes without having to learn OpenGL. A large collection of demos are included, demonstrating the many features and providing you with valuable design techniques and tricks. It also facilitates game design with a sound system, scripting, and networking.
The Extended Universal Resource Locator library provides a complete virtualization of file-like objects. How data is stored is completely transparent to the client, since the library is meant to replace java.io.File. It provides implementations for handling local files, Jar/Zip archives, and XML documents. (Implementations for CVS and FTP are available seperately.) Other storage providers can be written and plugged in. It also provides a merged filesystem implementation that allows multiple hierarchies to appear as one and to override each other in a controlled way. Other features include notification of changes to files, and support for attaching (dynamically updatable) actions to file objects.
The Fedora software is based on an architecture known as FEDORA (Flexible Extensible Digital Object and Repository Architecture). The software takes advantage of distributed (or local) Web services, and makes representations of objects (called disseminations) available via HTTP. It is particularly good at handling complex digital objects where source datastreams and behaviors are distributed. There are two binary distributions (server and client), and a source distribution (including all libraries and source code needed to build any distribution).
Showcase is a Mozilla Firefox plugin that allows tabs and windows to be managed by showing them as thumbnails in a single window, tab, or sidebar. It includes a find bar that will filter the thumbnails and the capability to select the thumbnails in the same way you would select files in your system.
Flawless traps exceptions and then uses git blame to send an email to the developer who wrote the buggy code. Even if a particular line of code causes thousands of exceptions, only one email will be sent. It uses git-blame to figure out which developer is responsible for a particular exception, and will only email that developer. If you set report_only_after_minimum_date, then Flawless will only report exceptions caused by code modified after report_only_after_minimum_date. You can mark certain files/functions as library code, and when an exception originates in those files/functions, the caller will be blamed for the error instead of the library code.
