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.
GPLIGC is a program for analyzing IGC flight data from GNSS flight data recorders used by glider pilots. It uses Perl/Tk and gnuplot. The openGLIGCexplorer (written in C++) allows one to view the data in 3D with OpenGL, and can also be used as a digital elevation model terrain viewer. It can also be used for off-screen rendering of 2D and 3D images of flight tracks or terrain/map data.

Condorcet with Dual Dropping is a ranking system for deciding single or multi-winner contests (elections) using voted preference (or approval) ballot list or pairwise tally matrix. It computes the Cloneproof Schwartz Sequential Dropping (CSSD) and Tideman's Ranked Pair (RP) results for each contest round, and selects the combined CSSD and RP outcome with the lowest overall dropping cost. There are options to compute just the CSSD, RP, or Minimum Dropping Cost outcome, various optional pair rank and winner tie-breakers, and alternative measures of dropping cost (winning votes and/or margin). It comes as a console program and CGI executable.
