EBuild is a software project build, dependency management, and reporting technology. The aim is to be able to tackle any build problem in a structured, declarative, and elegant way. It is written in Java, but can be used to build all manner of projects and is extensible via a plugin interface. It is best compared to something like Maven (and in some respects Ivy). It aims to overcome certain design flaws and the resultant unnecessary complexity. The EBuild build model is general, but plugins need to be written in a JVM compatible language. Existing plugins all deal with the Java ecosystem, so EBuild is most suitable for Java and mixed technology software projects.
FontMapper is a font texture generator for game developers. It allows you to turn a font you have installed to a PNG texture of tightly packed glyphs, accompanied by a text file describing the glyphs' properties and texture coordinates. You can read these in a game to render fonts. FontMapper supports Unicode (although only the Basic Multilingual Plane, i.e. the 16-bit codepoints), and each glyph can have its own size, i.e. fonts are not necessarily monospaced. Currently, FontMapper is command-line only, although there might be a GUI frontend in the future.
Aspose.Pdf for JasperReports is a flexible Java component designed to export reports from JasperReports and JasperServer to Portable Document Format (PDF) with high fidelity, identical to the report design. Its engine supports many chart layouts, such as Pie, Bar, Stacked Bar, Line, Area, Scatter Plot, Bubble, and Time series. All report features, including charts, tables, and images are converted to PDF with the highest degree of precision. It also supports the .jrxml specification.
musutil includes several utilities for working with a music collection. The principle one is musview, which generates a number of "Views". Each View, analogous to a database view, is an alternative presenation of the original files. The View can selectively include only some files (based on their properties) or have files processed into into a different format, with audio filters applied, adjusted tag data, or a different filename.
Guardian Grab eases the process of downloading the digital editions of The Guardian and The Observer newspapers, which are available through Newspaper Direct. Guardian Grab interacts with the Newspaper Direct site to log-on, identify available sections, and download the newspaper in the PDF, mobi (Kindle), or ePub formats. Downloads are arranged by paper, date, and format under a specified directory. Guardian Grab also maintains a directory holding the latest copy of each paper for easy syncing.
Resize Magic is an application that resizes images with a high quality algorithm, similar to the Lanczos algorithm used by other programs, with some modifications. It can be used to batch resize images, and preserves Exif data and ICC color profiles. A Photoshop plugin is also available as a commercial product.
