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.

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.

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.

Mnet is a universal file space (a single, global virtual space into which you can put, and from which you can get, files). It comes with a single global namespace so that there is no conflict over filenames. It is also an emergent network, one in which the important features of the network result from the interactions of nodes operated by autonomous people or organizations who do not explicitly coordinate with one another. There are many interesting applications that can be built on top of an emergent network and a universal file space. The first application that has been written for the Mnet project is a file-sharing application which lets you search for and download files of all kinds from the universal file space. Mnet is descendant of Mojo Nation.

Packlet is a simple installer tool for Java. A packlet is similar to a zip or tgz file: it packages an application into a single compressed file that can be distributed. Packlet files are class files that can be executed on any machine with Java 2 installed. Executing a packlet brings up an installer GUI to configure and unpack the application.

Rexx/Wrapper enables Rexx programs to be wrapped within a native executable program. The source is optionally encrypted and compressed, but can be recovered if the key that was used to wrap the original program is known. Rexx/Wrapper is not a Rexx compiler.

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.
