Hood is a C++ user-level threads library for multiprogrammed, shared-memory multiprocessors. Hood is designed primarily for parallel programs, and it is especially effective for dynamic, highly asynchronous parallelism. Hood's thread scheduler is a non-blocking implementation of the work-stealing algorithm that has been shown to be efficient both in theory and in practice. The current version fully supports Solaris (SPARC) and partially supports Linux: due to the Linux implementation of pthreads, many library calls are not safe for use within Hood threads (this problem does not exist under Solaris).
ViewDog is a viewer for nurbs functions, polygonal geometry, and to some degree for iso surfaces of functions over a 3D domain (via marching cube). It also can be used as a graphical frontend for a number of interpolation and approximation algorithms contained in a seperate library (GUL). Import and export via Alias Wavefront 3.0 OBJ files is possible, so it can be used simply as a viewer for OBJ files, too.
Gumshoe is a program that connects to multiple file sharing services, allowing one to search and download from any of them simultaneously with a consistent interface. Currently only Napster and Gnutella are supported. A plugin system makes it easy to add more. A console UI is implemented, graphical and possibly HTML/HTTP interfaces will come later.
GtkCanvas is a straight port of the GNOME Canvas from the stable gnome-libs 1.2.4 back to gtk+. This widget behaves identically to the GnomeCanvas widget, with the same APIs, except the names are changed from gnome_canvas to gtk_canvas. Since the next version of gtk+ will drop GdkImLib and intgrate with gdk-pixbuf, it is expected that future versions of this widget will depend upon gtk+ only. It is intended that GtkCanvas will follow GnomeCanvas closely, merging new code whenever a stable release of the latter is made. Thus this is not really a fork but rather a "re-packaging" of the same code.
GtkGLMaterialDialogis a GTK+ dialog that can be used to edit 3D-object material properties. It is based on the material properties of OpenGL with diffuse, ambient, specular, emissive colors (RGBA), and a specular coefficient (shininess). The material is previewed by rendering a lit OpenGL sphere in a gtkglarea widget.
The fontutils package includes the programs bpltobzr, bzrto, charspace, fontconvert, gsrenderfont, imageto, imgrotate, limn, and xbfe. These create fonts for use with Ghostscript or TeX (starting with a scanned type image and converting the bitmaps to outlines), convert between font formats, etc. The package also includes the libraries libbzr.a, libgf.a, libpbm.a, libpk.a, libtfm.a, and libwidgets.a.
GDAM is real-time digital dj mixing software package. Any number of mp3 files can be played and mixed simultaneously. Effects can be added, changed, and rearranged dynamically. GDAM features a client-server architecture; all sound is produced by a server, which receives instructions from any number of clients. Other features include plugins for audio effects and interface components, cacheing and looping, sequencing, assisted beatmatching, a waveform viewer/beat calculator, contiguous queueing (no pauses between songs when using a playlist), an online help system, an mpg123 clone which runs on a gdam server, flexible command line interface for direct control of server, recording of entire mix or any point in stream to buffer/disk/mp3 encoder, support for multiple sound devices, and support for midi hardware control.
