Redo Backup and Recovery is an extremely easy point-and-click rescue live CD with a suite of tools for system backup and recovery, partition editing, deleted file recovery, drive management, data protection, and more. The backup tool stores an image of the entire hard drive, so recovery from viruses, malware, or disc failures takes minutes. It boots from a CD or USB drive. It automatically locates local drives, USB drives, and network-shared drives to make backup storage and retrieval as simple as possible for anyone. The menu-driven GUI includes a Web browser for downloading drivers and a terminal with advanced command line tools.
FidoCadJ is a very easy-to-use editor, with a library of electrical symbols and footprints (through hole and SMD). Drawings can be exported in several graphic formats (PDF, EPS, PGF for LaTeX, SVG, PNG, and JPEG). Although very simple and not relying on any netlist concept, FidoCadJ can be considered a basic electronic design automation program. FidoCadJ uses a file format containing only UTF-8 text, which is very compact and suited for copying and pasting with newsgroups and forum messages. This determined its success, as it is quite versatile for simple mechanical drawings as well as for electronics.
Spampig DnsblCheck takes the IP address of a mail server and looks it up in common blacklists and whitelists. The program tests against the major block lists from Spamhaus, SORBS, Spamcop, Barracuda, UCEProtect, and others. In addition to blacklists, it also checks against IP address and domain name whitelists and even checks PTR record integrity. The program returns results quickly, typically in less than a few seconds. If you don't get results quickly, it indicates you may have DNS problems and knowing this can also be useful. This application can be useful to spam fighters and email users who are struggling to find out why their messages are being blocked.

The Isotrol DocGen BOUML plugout is a practical tool to update the OpenUP-based documentation of your project dynamically. DocGen extracts texts and diagrams from a BOUML project and inserts them in an OpenOffice.org Writer document. It's preconfigured with a generic project template and three definition files for Analysis, Design, and Architecture OpenUP-based documents. You can also insert predefined tables and link external images to embed them into the document. You can define your own template and file definitions. It's as easy as writing an OpenOffice.org Writer document and designing your own page format, cover, index page, headings styles, variables, etc. Afterwards, you create an XML file pointing to the parts of the BOUML project with the contents.
Estimer is a Redmine plugin that allows you to estimate your software projects. It can calculate two types of software estimations: function point estimations (IFPUG) and use case estimations. Function point estimations are software estimations based on function points. A function point is a unit of measurement to express the amount of business functionality that the information system provides to users. Use case estimations are software estimations based on use cases and actors.
