The Visual Component Framework is a cross platform C++ application framework that offers a modern, clean architecture. It is divided into three major libraries. The FoundationKit provides services such as file access, streams, threads, synchronization primitives, and advanced RTTI features. The GraphicsKit includes classes for working with both image and vector graphics, and has built in support for the Anti-Grain Graphics library. The ApplicationKit provides GUI controls, use of the Model-View-Control pattern, property and component editors, undo/redo support, drag-and-drop, clipboard services, application resources, and UI metrics and policy managers.
User Manager is a supplement to the "Accounts" pane in the Mac OS X System Preferences, designed for use with small home networks. User Manager is targeted at power users who desire full control over user and group attributes, without the need to resort to using the NetInfo Manager. With it, you can create, edit, or delete users and groups in any Open Directory node (e.g. a NetInfo domain). The interface allows you to edit nearly all record attributes, including UID, GID, login shell, and home directory. You can also manage Unix group memberships using the drag-and-drop user and group-centric interfaces.
OpenAIS is an open source implementation of the SA Forum (www.saforum.org) Application Interface Specification. The project currently implements APIs to improve availability by reducing MTTR. APIs available are cluster membership, application failover, checkpointing, eventing, distributed locking, messaging, closed process groups, and extended virtual synchrony passthrough. It is possible to write redundant applications that tolerate hardware, operating system, and application faults. Cluster software developers can write plugins to use the infrastructure provided by OpenAIS.
SPF is a new strategy for preventing junk mail. The present SMTP standard for email allows anyone to forge anyone else's email address. SPF verifies that the Sender address of an email message matches (according to some policy) the client IP address that submitted it. libspf2 is a complete and robust implementation of SPF which provides support for many MTAs. Support for new MTAs is in progress.
mysqlblasy is a Perl script for automating MySQL database backups. It uses "mysqldump" for dumping mysql databases to the files sytem. It was written with automated usage in mind. For example, it is silent during operation, and only produces noise on errors/problems. It rotates backups automatically to prevent the backup disk from getting full when the administrator is on vacation (or is lazy).
Factor is a dynamically-typed stack-based programming language. Factor runs on various OSes and CPU architectures, and provides an optimizing compiler, interactive development environment, powerful collections, higher order programming, continuations, and a growing library of contributed code.
