BitchX is the premiere IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client. It originally was a modified version of the popular ircII client, and the features were eventually merged into the EPIC IRC client. The current development is aimed at merging the client back to a current branch of EPIC and bringing compatibility and stability back to the client, while bringing the features that are BitchX into a new client.
PICI-NMS is an object oriented middleware which makes possible sending messages in a networked environment or on a single host between applications using the library provided. The supported message sending mechanism is "publish/subscribe" and this is backed up by a very easy-to-use and intuitive C++ API which hides the underlying socket interface to make the message sending as transparent to the client as possible.
SffTools consists of SffToBmp, a little utility that converts Structured Fax Files to BMP, PBM, JPEG, or single- and multipage TIFF format, and SffView, a GUI viewer for those files. The tools should be especially useful to people who are faxing with ISDN cards because the CAPI interface of these cards generates such files. CAPI support for Linux is available for the active card AVM B1 and the passive card AVM Fritz!.
