The Cambridge Z88 Software project was created by and for the "die-hard" users of the Cambridge Z88, the iPad of the 80s. Its object is to streamline the operating system, OZ, and build new Z88 applications by replacing the built-in ROM with a larger device. It also includes a Z88 emulator and debugging environment.
DarGUI is a graphical frontend for the Disk ARchiving utility (DAR) that aims to make it easier and quicker to perform common backup tasks using DAR. It uses the GTK+ library, which is installed on most Linux distributions, so usually the only additional dependency is DAR. DarGUI aims to complement and enhance the command line features of DAR rather than conceal them, and to help users to learn how DAR works so that they can use it from the command line when necessary. It is written in Pascal using FreePascal and the Lazarus IDE.
lemontree provides a very fast Java class for the Walsh Hadamard transform (WHT) and O'Connor transform (OCT). You can regard the OCT as a black box which turns arbitrary numerical data into data with a Gaussian distribution. There are inverse transforms, also. It has many applications, such as Random Projections, Compressive Sensing, Neural Nets, and Genetic algorithms.
libjpeg-turbo is a high-speed version of libjpeg for x86 and x86-64 processors. It uses SIMD instructions (MMX, SSE, SSE2) to accelerate baseline JPEG compression and decompression. libjpeg-turbo is generally 2-4 times as fast as the unmodified version of libjpeg. It also includes a wrapper library for the TurboJPEG API used by VirtualGL and TurboVNC. It was originally based on libjpeg/SIMD but has improved support for Mac OS X, 64-bit platforms, 32-bit and big endian pixel formats (RGBA/BGRA/ABGR/ARGB), accelerated Huffman encoding/decoding, and various other fixes.
Opendedup is a deduplication-based filesystem and block device designed to provide inline deduplication and flexiblity for applications. It benefits services such as backup, archiving, NAS storage, and Virtual Machine primary and secondary storage, and can be deployed in both a stand alone and distributed, multi node configuration. Standalone, it provides inline deduplication, replication, and unlimited snapshot capabilities. In a multi-node configuration, it adds global intra-volume deduplication, block storage redundancy, and block storage expandability. and will store and share unique data blocks with other volumes within the cluster. These volumes can also specify a level of redundancy for data stored in the cluster.
VPPPN stands for virtual peer-to-peer private networking. The project provides a VPN client using a custom protocol to be able to set up a point-to-point dynamic virtual network. This differs from OpenVPN in that it does not need a central server to pass the network's traffic. A central server exists to allocate IP addresses and provide a point of contact for the clients, but once connections are established, these services are no longer needed. This means that a VPPN network is free (as in beer), since to set up a network you do not need to invest in an always-on Internet server. Once established, a VPPPN network behaves in a similar way to a normal IP network. To the end user, this means you can set up an office network and drag and drop files between computers in a secure manner over the Internet.
StatusNet Desktop is a dedicated multi-platform client for connecting to StatusNet messaging servers (requires a server running 0.9.3 or later). The client can connect to multiple StatusNet sites to read and post updates, including secure and private installations. Home, public, individual, and group timelines can be read and posted to, as well as direct user-to-user messages and keyword searching of the public notice stream. Support for StatusNet-specific features such as user groups is explicitly included, where these are usually not supported by generic Twitter-API clients.
