CRET is a code review tool for reviewing and committing patches to a Subversion repository. It hooks into SVN's commit procedure and only performs the commit if the patch file has an "approved" status. When somebody wants to commit a patch file to an SVN repository, the patch file must first be added to CRET. The person committing must the select reviewers and enter an objective and title for the patch. This operation notifies the reviewers through email. A reviewer can add comments to a patch, approve it, or reject it. Comments are sent to the requestor via email. If a patch is approved, the requestor can commit the code. When the code is committed, email is sent to the requestor and reviewers for notification.

Whenever a thread ends, an objects is taken from the pool and processed on a new thread. This continues until the pool is empty.
Loanr is a simple loan calculator. It's been tested on primary BlackBerry devices and Symbian devices. It's handy to have when looking to purchase a car from a dealer with their frequent jumping back-and-forth from total payments to monthly payments, but also works for other types of loans and less low-pressure situations. The file is unsigned, and may illicit a warning on your device when you try and download it.
Javasynth is a Java-based system for creating (rather experimental) modular audio systems called sound modules. This allows synthesizers of some kind to be assembled in a modular fashion using oscillators, amplifiers, envelopes, filters, and other components familiar to those that have worked with hardware synthesizers. It includes a separated synth engine and a Swing user interface for building sound modules.
