RoseThorn is a cross-platform library for 2D and 3D games running on GNU/Linux (and possibly other Unix-like OSes) and Windows. Features include: hardware accelerated 2D and 3D rendering; Ogg and WAV Sound support with OpenAL; Lua scripting; BMP, JPEG, and PNG image loading and saving (from screenshots); easily created and modified user interfaces with XML and CSS, combined with Lua event handling; separate 2D and 3D libraries; support for multiple fonts in both TTF and bitmap formats; support for OBJ, 3DS, MD5, and RTM model formats; skeletal animation (a work in progress); support for UDP and TCP networking; thread and mutex support; a Simple Shader API; 2D animated sprites; and some basic cryptography support. There is simple event management, with key/mouse bindings easily customized from the in-game console, config file, command line, or GUI.
jPDFImages is a Java library to export images from PDF files and import images into PDF files. It can create images from pages in a PDF document and export them as JPEG, TIFF, or PNG images. It can return the image of any page in the document to the host Java application as a BufferedImage for further processing or to save in different formats. It can create documents or add pages to existing documents by importing TIFF, JPEG, and PNG images. After creating or modifying a document, it can save to the local filesystem or to an output stream to be able to serve the document directly to a client browser when working within a J2EE server. jPDFImages is built on top of Qoppa's proprietary PDF technology, so you do not have to install any third party software or drivers. It is also 100% Java, so it is completely platform-independent.
Animmerger stitches 2D images together into either a static image or an animation, while attempting to preserve a global frame of reference (static background). That is, for a movie that follows an actor around (and the background scrolls to follow them), it creates a movie that has a fixed background, and the camera moves around in the scene. The most obvious application of animmerger is in automatic map stitching for 2D video games, but there are many general purposes for which the program can be used. Its color quantization and dithering algorithm set is particularly advanced.
Tacticalendar is an innovative calendar design implemented in SVG. It always lets you see 4 weeks ahead, even at the end of the month, unlike ordinary month-view calendars. When a week has passed, the oldest week slides out of the top. All the other weeks slide up. The oldest week is erased, reconfigured, and slides back in below to create a future week. The project provides source files authored through Inkscape using free fonts, with PNG previews for those without a suitable SVG renderer.
Spectra is a simple tool designed to aid in evaluating the quality of random numbers generated by TRNGs and PRNGs. It does this by counting the occurrences of characters within a given input file to help detect perceived bias, and then visualizes the data as colored (or black and white) pixels in an image file to aid in detection of repeating patterns. As the human mind is exceptionally good at picking up on patterns that might otherwise be difficult to detect mathematically, Spectra allows the user to rapidly make a determination on the repeatability of numbers generated from the suspect RNG.
