Penacho is a simulation software that calculates and draws the gas dispersion of a smokestack in the atmosphere. It consists of a GUI to enter air conditions, an atmospheric dispersion modeling solver, and an interactive 3D graphics engine. Penacho draws the plume evolution, the particles' deposition and the pollutant concentration distribution, as an isosurface and a grid plane for each coordinate axis. Penacho exports its simulation results as a text file, VTK structured points, or CSV (suitable for spreadsheets).

Photos can appear in multiple albums and categories. Additional features include search, slideshows, lightboxes, email, access privileges, and multiple languages.
FAVS is an engine for setting up a Web site that allows teachers to display content from their pupils' blogs at their Web sites, and lets the students vote the best posts and check the results, with just one simple HTML tag.

The students will be able to join the teacher's FAVS and, from then on, their posts will appear at the teacher's site.
gjots lets you organize text notes in a convenient, hierarchical way. It can be used for notes, jottings, bits and pieces, recipes, and even PINs and passwords, using encryption. It can also be used to "mind-map" larger compositions like manuals, Web pages, articles, etc. It is a bit like the KDE program "kjots", but uses the GTK library and supports a hierarchy of folders. Files can be output to HTML with an automatic table of contents or to docbook XML. Encryption is supported with ccrypt(1), gpg(1), and openssl(1), so that musings can be kept private.
