Launch4j is a cross-platform tool for wrapping Java applications distributed as jars in Windows native executables. The executable can be configured to search for a certain JRE version or use a bundled one, and it's possible to set runtime options, like the initial/max heap size. The wrapper also provides better user experience through an application icon, a native pre-JRE splash screen, and a Java download page in case the appropriate JRE cannot be found. The increase in size of the application is small.
UnZip will list, test, or extract files from a ZIP archive, commonly found on DOS and Windows systems. A companion program, Zip, creates ZIP archives; both are part of the Info-ZIP project. Both programs are compatible with archives created by PKWARE's PKZIP or Nico Mak's WinZip, but in many cases the program options or default behaviors differ.
radmind is a suite of Unix command-line tools and a server designed to remotely administer the file systems of multiple Unix machines. At its core, radmind operates as a tripwire. It is able to detect changes to any managed filesystem object, e.g. files, directories, links, etc. However, radmind goes further than just integrity checking: once a change is detected, radmind can optionally reverse the change. Each managed machine may have its own loadset composed of multiple, layered overloads. This allows, for example, the operating system to be described separately from applications. Loadsets are stored on a remote server. By updating a loadset on the server, changes can be pushed to managed machines.
freecode-submit performs remote submissions of release updates to Freecode via its JSON API. It is intended for use in project release scripts. It reads the metadata from an RFC-2822-like message on standard input, possibly with overrides by commandline switches. It supersedes freshmeat-submit, which no longer works following the site name change.
Pre Make Kit (PMK) aims to be a BSD alternative to GNU autoconf, GNU libtool, and pkg-config. It uses data files instead of scripts to limit the spreading of trojans in software packages. It's designed to be easy to use for users and developers. For better portability and efficiency, all of the components are written in C. Requirements are a POSIX system, a C compiler, a POSIX shell, and a make tool.
MacPorts makes the world of open source software available to your Mac. There are over 5600 software titles ("ports"), each one installable with a single command. This is probably the biggest, most up to date open source software collection for Mac OS X. MacPorts works much like the ports collections of the major BSD operating systems.
Advisory Check is a program that reads security advisories for you. It gathers security advisories using RSS, RDF, or XML feeds, compares them against the installed software, and alerts you if you're vulnerable. A wide variety of package managers can be queried to detect installed software. Remote systems can be monitored by using the integrated SSH, Windows-RPC, and Nmap support.
flashboot for OpenBSD is a set of makefiles, scripts, and support tools to build an OpenBSD image suitable for booting from read-only media, such as flash memory. The default image (smaller than 5Mb) is an image for a firewall/router with support for IPsec, SSH, IPv4 and IPv6 packet filtering, DHCP (client and server), and PPPoE. This image may be further trimmed or extended by editing the packing list files included in the distribution.
DeltaRPM is a tool that generates RPMs that contains the difference between an old and a new version of an RPM. This makes it possible to recreate the new RPM from the deltarpm and the old one. You don't have to have a copy of the old RPM, as it can also work with installed RPMs. The package also contains tools for creating and applying delta ISOs.
Rally is a software component with a user interface which allows a user to install, update, and remove packages on RPM based operating systems. Primary functions (downloading software packages from network repositories and their installation) may be performed in parallel. The user interface is split into two independent parts: a graphical one and a command line utility. The graphical interface contains package searching and category browsing functions. Rally assumes the Fedora project as a reference platform.
