Topologic is a simple renderer for certain higher-dimensional geometric primitives and some regular 3D shapes. The idea is to make it easy for students of certain higher-dimensional maths and physics topics to visualize the typical primitives in those fields and get a grasp for the topic.
Font Manager is a font management application for the GNOME desktop. It is not intended to be a professional-grade font management solution, but rather a simple application suitable for the needs of most desktop users and even some graphics designers who may need to manage just a few thousand font files. Although designed with the GNOME desktop environment in mind, it should work well with most major desktop environments such as XFCE, Enlightenment, and KDE.
The YB.ORM library aims to simplify writing C++ code that has to deal with SQL databases. The goal is to provide a convenient interface like SQLAlchemy (Python) or Hibernate (Java). The library itself is cross-platform and supports a variety of SQL dialects: SQLite3, MySQL, Postgres, Oracle, and Firebird. Integration with Boost, Qt4, and wxWidgets is built-in. In a typical usage scenario, you would describe your database schema and table relationships in a simple XML-based format, generate SQL code to populate database schema with tables, generate C++ classes, add application-specific logic to the classes, and use these classes in cooperation with the Session object to query objects from the database, create new or modify/delete existing objects, or link and unlink objects using relations. Simple serialization to XML is supported along with connection pooling.
Subsurface is a dive log program. The user can download dive information directly from a large number of supported dive computers. Subsurface is able to track multi-tank dives with air, Nitrox, or TriMix, weights and exposure protection used, dive masters, and dive buddies, and allows the user to rate dives and provide additional dive notes. It calculates a wide variety of statistics of the user’s diving and calculates and tracks information like SAC rate or OTU. Subsurface allows the user to print out a detailed log book including dive profiles and other relevant information.
sxmppd is a server for the XMPP (Jabber) chat protocol. While other, functional XMPP servers exist, they are not as simple or have many dependencies. It supports user authentication, SSL, roster management, presence updates and subscriptions, messaging (local users), group chat, and file-based server configuration.
