Xlit converts text from one writing system into another. It allows the user to define a transliteration simply by typing the input strings in one window and the strings to which they are to be mapped in another. Transliteration may be restricted to regions bounded by specified delimiters or their complements. Transliteration may also be performed by external commands or plugins. Xlit can also convert one type of delimiter to another, e.g. from HZ escapes to XML. Xlit can read and write transliteration definitions in its own format and as Yudit keymaps. It can be run in batch mode without the GUI.
XmlBlaster is XML based MOM (Message oriented Middleware) with a lot of features. It is a publish/subscribe and point-to-point MOM server which exchanges XML-encoded messages. Communication with the server is based on CORBA (using JacORB), RMI, XML-RPC, native socket, or a persistent HTTP plugin. Subscribers can use XPath expressions to filter the messages they wish to receive and add their own MIME-based filter plugins. C/C++, Java, Perl, Python, VisualBasic.net, C#, and PHP client demos are included in the xmlBlaster test suite, and Tcl and Python demo clients are scheduled. XmlBlaster also provides a browser callback framework, allowing browsers (Netscape, Mozilla, MSIE) to receive instant callbacks over a persistent http connection. A security plugin framework allows authentication/authorization in many ways. Currently there are LDAP- and passwd-based plugins available.
xmmstcl lets you control XMMS playback, skip, pause, change the playlist, change skins, and do everything else provided by the xmms_remote_* methods, which is almost everything from the standard user interface. It also has some things not available there, such as "XMMS onchange" which lets your Tcl/Tk application know when something happens in the player. The companion "TkPlayer" has samples for the most important functions and will keep XMMS busy by generating random playlists with songs that you haven't heard in a while.

Available packages are listed complete with architecture, package version, and repository. Each package listed has an "info" button to display the description information from the package header.
