ICS is an inter-process configuration sharing system. It allows one process to act as the master and manage the configuration backing storage, while other processes transparently connect to the master using an ICS::Controller::Slave class, which has the same API as the ICS::Controller::Master class and allows them to use the configuration and subscribe to changes as if the process were hosting the master controller. It is useful for projects that use multiple processes but don't want to use a desktop-wide configuration system like GConf. A demonstration is included.
CWXML is an high-performance, open-source C-language library for parsing and generating XML and BXML formats with a straightforward API. Initial testing indicates that it is 3 or more times faster than other popular libraries such as expat and libxml2 at parsing XML and much faster again with BXML, which is a straightforward, open, patent-unencumbered binary-encoding format for XML data that is a stand-alone work-alike drop-in replacement for an XML file that mirrors the XML markup structures in a way that is similar to the in-memory representations of many parser libraries.
GXPARSE is not a new XML parser, but is an additional processing layer that makes it much easier to use event-based parsers like the SAX parser. It supports both direct sequential output and random access output (via the Resequencer interface). The random access mode delays output until all input has been processed, but makes it much easier to handle ID/IDREF attributes. GXPARSE maintains most advantages of the event-based parser. Application development and maintenance is considerably easier, but processing is a little slower.
This C code module gives the Apache 1.3.x HTTP server the ability to correctly negotiate content types for XHTML documents. Currently these are sent as text/HTML for most Web sites. This gives maximum compatibility among older Web clients, but is not recommended practice according to the W3C.
WikklyText is a Python-based wiki and modular library for creating custom wikitext rendering applications. Its wikitext engine is compatible with the TiddlyWiki markup language. It functions equally well as a wiki-on-a-stick or as a multiuser wiki behind Apache. It includes a Drupal plugin as well.
Rome is a set of Atom/RSS Java utilities that make it easy to work in Java with most syndication formats. It accepts all current flavors of RSS (0.90, 0.91, 0.92, 0.93, 0.94, 1.0, and 2.0) and Atom 0.3 feeds. Rome includes a set of parsers and generators for the various flavors of feeds, as well as converters to convert from one format to another. The parsers can give you back Java objects that are either specific for the format you want to work with, or a generic normalized SyndFeed object that lets you work on with the data without bothering about the underlying format.
