cduino is a microcontroller programming system that is like arduino but simpler. It allows experienced programmers to get a quick start programming and talking to a microcontroller. You should be up and talking to your arduino over the serial line in a matter of minutes. This is achieved using a very easy Makefile-based driver for the command line Atmel AVR programming tools, a library of C routines, and a series of lessons that introduce a variety of AVR subsystems.
MBSL (MicroBlaze Simple Linux) is a set of Makefile scripts to create an image of a Linux-based OS for the Xilinx MicroBlaze (FPGA) soft processor. It provides very simple package management that allows you to customize the resulted image. The purpose is to just type 'make build install' and get the configured image.
Fluxfont is a specialized tool that attempts to tackle the privacy concerns raised by the possibility to collect information about the fonts installed on a system. Such information can be used to uniquely identify a system. With Fluxfonts, new fonts are randomly created and removed to prevent the same fingerprint from being recreated.
email2trac is a utility that converts email messages to Trac tickets. It features HTML message conversion, attachments, updating of tickets via email, command line options, a configuration file, Unicode support, spam detection, workflow support, and support for FullBlogPlugin and DiscussionPlugin.
Debian packaging utilities for Truecrypt source helps to get Truecrypt running with a minimum of effort under Debian-based Linux systems (Debian and Ubuntu are officially supported). Truecrypt is an open source disk encryption software which uses a concept of containers to store encrypted data. The containers (or volumes) can be read transparently under Linux and Windows. The utilities create installable *.deb packages from the sources and those debs can be used in turn to install the encryption software.
xlife is a laboratory for experimenting with cellular automata. It supports loadable rulesets and palettes, different topologies, and up to 256-state cellular automata. It has rules and patterns for Life, Brian's Brain, Perrier's Loops, Langton's Ants and Loops, Wireworld, E.F. Codd's 1975 UCC automaton, some Prisoner's Dilemma games, and many others. It is very fast for step-by-step mode, bounded grid, and chaotic patterns. It has several unique features: a historical mode, a pseudocolor mode, and n-state statistics. It has been developed since 1989. The modern version of Xlife began its history in 2011.
The Crossplex package of make macros simplifies the creation of embedded systems, and is powerful enough for large organizations to use for developing elaborate product lines. It allows you to organize many different products under a logical structure, making systems of any complexity easy to specify. When you have many different target platforms, each with multiple different software configurations, Crossplex keeps those configurations from stepping on each other, without requiring redundancy in your source tree. Crossplex allows you to use a single dependency tree encompassing both in-house software and third-party packages, and it is particularly suited to build automation. Crossplex makes it easy to shield your build from the host environment, setting all shell variables explicitly, and giving you complete control over the path that is used at any point in the build. This is nice when you want to support building on a variety of development platforms. Crossplex scales to your needs. You can dabble in the unpacking and patching features as you need them, or you can base your entire system from the ground up on the Crossplex framework. Crossplex supports creation and use of glibc and uClibc toolchains.
