Siag Office is a free office package which consists of the spreadsheet Siag, the word processor PW, the animation program Egon, the text editor XedPlus, the file manager Xfiler and the previewer Gvu. Siag is easy to use, yet infinitely flexible through multiple embedded interpreters and a plugin mechanism that allows other programs to run inside the main document. The supported interpreters are SIOD, Guile, Tcl, and Python.

TeXtrace is a collection of scripts that convert any TeX font into a Type1 .pfb outline font immediately suitable for use with dvips, pdftex, Acroread, and many other programs. The main advantage of using Type1 fonts with TeX is that Acroread renders TeX's bitmap fonts ugly on screen, but it renders outline fonts beutifully and fast.
The goal of the StarOffice Converter project is to produce filters for StarOffice 5.x documents which convert them into plain text. It is meant to be similar to catdoc, ppthtml, and xls2csv, which work for MS Office documents. A search engine can use these filters to index .sdw files.
