Kiwix is an offline reader for Web content. It was designed for use with Wikipedia, but is potentially suitable for all HTML content. It supports the ZIM format, a highly compressed open format with additional meta-data. It is intended for use in schools, universities, and libraries which can't afford broadband Internet access. It features a full text search engine, bookmarks and notes, an HTTP server, PDF/HTML export, a user interface in more than 80 languages, tabbed navigation, and an integrated content manager and downloader.
LocDemo demonstrates the functionality of libwlocate. After startup, it evaluates the current geographic position of the user and displays it within a map. This solution offers geographic localization that works without the use of GPS and without submitting tracking or position data to commercial providers of such services.
The MirBSD Korn Shell (mksh) is an actively developed successor of pdksh (the Public Domain Korn Shell), aimed at producing a shell good for interactive use, but with the primary focus on scripting. It is intended to be portable to most *nix-like operating systems as long as they're not too obscure. mksh incorporates improvements from OpenBSD and Debian, as well as bugfixes and enhancements developed for the MirOS, FreeWRT, and MidnightBSD projects and Android. The emacs command line editing mode is UTF-8 capable, and Byte Order Marks are ignored in scripts. The shell supports large files, as well as all pdksh and some csh, AT&T ksh, zsh, and GNU bash features, is compatible with the Bourne shell and POSIX (within limits), has no limit on array sizes, and incorporates some other useful builtins and features. While being already fast and small (without losing functionality), flags to make it even smaller can be given at compile time. An interactive shell reads "~/.mkshrc" on startup.
MundoCore is a lightweight and easy-to-use communication middleware to integrate heterogeneous software systems, consisting of services written in different programming languages and running on different operating systems. It also offers specific support for mobile and ubiquitous computing environments.
The Open Real-Time Ethernet (ORTE) is an implementation of the Real-Time Publish-Subscribe (RTPS) communication protocol. RTPS is a new application layer protocol targeted to real-time communication areas, and is built on the top of standard UDP stack. Since there are many TCP/IP stack implementations under many operating systems, and RTPS does not have any other special hardware or software requirements, it should be easily ported to many target platforms. Because it uses only UDP, it retains control of timing and reliability.
The Open-Transactions project is a collaborative effort to develop a robust, commercial-grade, fully-featured, free-software toolkit implementing a full-strength financial cryptography library, API, CLI, and prototype server. Open-Transactions democratizes financial and monetary actions. You can use it for issuing currencies/stock, paying dividends, creating asset accounts, sending/receiving digital cash, writing/depositing cheques, cashier's cheques, creating basket currencies, trading on markets, scripting custom agreements, recurring payments, escrow, etc. Strong crypto is used. Balances are unchangeable (even by a malicious server). Receipts are destructible and redundant. The transactions are unforgeable. The cash is untraceable. The cheques are non-repudiable.
OpenMobster is a mobile cloud platform to integrate mobile apps with Cloud services. These services can be anything ranging from your Corporate backend (CRM, ERP, etc.), to consumer Cloud services (Gmail, Facebook, etc). It features Seamless Data Synchronization: synchronizes and manages the life cycle of locally stored data. This data is then automatically/bidirectionally synchronized with the cloud. Push Notifications: app state changes are proactively pushed to an App from the Cloud server. The Push mechanism uses a pure network/socket based approach instead of clunky methodologies like sending SMS alerts or email alerts. The Push notifications happen inside the app's execution environment. In case of iOS, Push is based on the Apple Push Notification Service. Supported platforms: Android and iPhone/iOS.
