XmlBlaster is XML based MOM (Message oriented Middleware) with a lot of features. It is a publish/subscribe and point-to-point MOM server which exchanges XML-encoded messages. Communication with the server is based on CORBA (using JacORB), RMI, XML-RPC, native socket, or a persistent HTTP plugin. Subscribers can use XPath expressions to filter the messages they wish to receive and add their own MIME-based filter plugins. C/C++, Java, Perl, Python, VisualBasic.net, C#, and PHP client demos are included in the xmlBlaster test suite, and Tcl and Python demo clients are scheduled. XmlBlaster also provides a browser callback framework, allowing browsers (Netscape, Mozilla, MSIE) to receive instant callbacks over a persistent http connection. A security plugin framework allows authentication/authorization in many ways. Currently there are LDAP- and passwd-based plugins available.
The Model Railroad System is a software package that can help you run your railroad. It allows you to operate your layout, from running trains to working your signals and switches. It has support for a network of Bruce Chubb CMR/I USIC, SUSIC, and/or SMINI nodes, and/or a network of Lenz's XPressNet DCC nodes. Azatrax USB-connected Model Railroad Detectors are supported. Software to create switch lists for freight car forwarding and create timetables for your railroad are included. There is software to help with photographing your trains, and to compute the correct value for those pesky dropping resistors for LEDs and/or incandescent lamps.
MARIE is a new design tool for mobile and autonomous robot applications, designed to facilitate the integration of multiple heterogeneous software elements. It is a flexible tool based on a distributed model, thus allowing the realization of an application using one machine or various networked machines, architectures, and platforms.
Libbraille makes it easy to access Braille displays and terminals. It can write text on a Braille display, directly draw Braille dots, or get the value of pressed keys. It is compatible with a wide range of Braille displays, and can autodetect some of them. A virtual GTK+ display is provided so that developers can test how their application would be rendered in Braille.
The Linux ABI is a patch to the Linux kernel that allows a linux system to run foreign binaries. It was developed as a follow-on to the iBCS/iBCS2 project for the older 2.2 kernel. It supports binaries from SCO OpenServer, SCO OpenDesktop, SCO Unix 3.x, SCO Xenix 386, SCO Xenix 286 (with userspace x286 emulation), SCO UnixWare 7, Caldera OpenUnix 8, SUN Solaris 2, System V Release 3 (SVR3), System V Release 4 (SVR4), Wyse V/386, and ISC Interactive Unix. Only the Intel i386 platform is currently supported
