0release is a program to generate source and binary releases automatically. With minimal configuration, 0release will generate a source tarball release candidate, build it to create a binary archive, upload them to your Web server, check the uploads, and tag the release in GIT and update the version number. It can run unit-tests and custom actions, such as building documentation, etc. For Zero Install users, it can also upload a signed XML metadata file about the release, allowing these users to upgrade automatically. Releases are signed with your GPG key.
Chestnut Package Manager is a utility to handle executables and resource files in a transparent, platform independent, and relocatable way. Its concept is similar to Apple bundles and Java archives. It is implemented in Python. Chestnut makes it possible to invoke programs or obtain resources without knowledge of their absolute or relative path, making them accessible even after relocation of the package to another directory.
Zero Install is a decentralized cross-distribution software installation system. It allows software developers to publish programs directly from their own Web sites, while supporting features familiar from centralized distribution repositories such as shared libraries, automatic updates, and digital signatures. It is intended to complement, rather than replace, the operating system's package management. 0install packages never interfere with those provided by the distribution.
stableUpdate is an autoupdate tool for creating, detecting, downloading, installing, and removing service packs for JAR-based Java applications. Generated updates are transferred in archives, upgrading between subsequent versions. An update contains changed single files and changed parts of JAR and ZIP files. It supports mirrors, release notes, and uninstallation of updates.
Invicta is an open-source build management tool. Using simple project definition files, it generates powerful build scripts (Apache ANTs) while hiding their complexity. Furthermore, Invicta is a modular framework that allows advanced developers add their own customized types of components, which means writing once ANT code that can later be used by all developers in their project or company simply by specifying the new type name.
QoS Enabled Distributed Objects implements a CCM and adds some more advanced features such as QoS extensions and interoperability with other middleware technologies. Please note that you also need the generator for implementing your own components, and it can be found at the same place.
Luau provides a backbone for disseminating software updates throughout a software project's userbase. It differs from other autoupdate solutions (eg. apt, Red Hat Network) in that it works on a decentralized basis: developers provide a "Luau Repository" file describing all currently available packages and updates which is then downloaded and interpreted by the client. It is also more flexible in that individual developers can distribute not only software updates but messages throughout the userbase, which can be used to inform users of important security updates, new software roadmaps, or anything else the developer thinks is important for users of the software package. Also provided is an X front-end ('luau-x') and a console-based front-end ('luau') that allow the user to check for and download or install updates for all supported software.
jSyncManager is a Java-based data synchronization toolkit for PalmOS handhelds. It consists of a developers API, including a fully Palm-compatible synchronization protocol stack, and a set of end-user applications. It is ideal for use by any individual or organization that needs fast, stable, and easily extendable PalmOS handheld data synchronization that can run on a variety of platforms. It also supports plug-ins, which can be used to add synchronization support to applications, and includes a variety of import and export modes, including XML and CSV.
