ImageVis3D is a volume rendering application specifically designed to render large data sets. This is achieved by splitting the data set into multiple levels of detail (LoD), with each level itself decomposed into multiple bricks (atomic rendering primitives). Interaction occurs at the coarsest LoD, which can be rendered instantaneously on almost all modern systems. After a configurable delay, ImageVis3D will successively render finer levels of detail, until the data are visible at their native resolution. Volume rendering, as the name implies, is a technique for rendering scalar volumes of data. The rendering method allows one to see "inside" a data set, allowing the user to understand the inner three-dimensional structure of the data.
Chakra Linux is a Linux distribution that combines the simplicity of Arch Linux with KDE. It is fast, user-friendly, and extremely powerful. It can be used as a live CD or installed to hard disk. Chakra is currently under heavy and active development. It features a graphical installer and automatic hardware configuration. Chakra provides a modular and tweaked package set of the KDE Software Compilation with a lot of useful additions. It features the concept of half-rolling releases and freshly cooked packages and bundles. It is designed for people who really want to learn something about Linux or don't want to deal with administrative overhead.
The libQtCassandra library is an advanced C++ library used to access Cassandra servers. Unlike the basic Cassadra server interface, this C++ library provides separate objects that handle each level of the server data, i.e. the cluster, contexts, table, rows, and cells. It uses Qt and the Qt style for all the classes, which makes it very easy to use if you already know Qt.
The libQtSerialization library is a Qt extension that makes it easy to serialize your data in a forward and backward compatible way. The library is composed of QWriter and QReader. The writer is straightforward - all you have to do is call a writeTag() function and the data is serialized. The reader is a little more complex as it supports special cases, such as sub-classes (so you can save a tree of classes) and arrays of classes (your tree may be composed of multiple instances of a given object).
Ridual is a dual-pane file manager for GNOME. It features tight integration with GNOME (providing GVFS mount support, bookmarks and user directories, a removable drives list, file icons, and application associations), keyboard-oriented control (with adjustable shortcuts for everything, single-window dialogs, and messages), and advanced tasks and queues management.
