libkdtree++ is a C++ template container implementation of k-dimensional space sorting, using a kd-tree. It sports a theoretically unlimited number of dimensions, and can store any data structure. Provided the data structure, it provides operator[0 - k-1] to access the individual dimensional components (arrays, std::vector already do) and a std::less implementation for the type of dimensional components. It has support for custom allocators, implements iterators, and provides standard find as well as range queries. It has amortised O(lg n) time (O(n lg n) worst case) on most operations (insert/erase/find optimised) and worst-case O(n) space, and also provides a means to rebalance and thus optimise the tree.
libfactory++ is a C++ template framework for run-time dynamic type instantiation. You can register single classes or whole hierarchies, and then tell libfactory++ to instantiate objects using the registration key. libfactory++ differs from other factory approaches mainly in its flexibility. First, it can use any constructor a type supports, and allows you to choose (and configure) the constructor to use for each call to create(). Second, it supports custom allocators, allowing you to use, e.g., a memory pool rather than continuous invocations of 'new'.
libhid is a user-space HID access library. It provides a generic and flexible way to access and interact with USB HID devices, much like libusb does for plain USB devices. It is based on libusb, thus it requires no HID support in the kernel. Furthermore, it aims to support all operating system supported by libusb: Linux, BSD, OS X, and Windows. Python bindings are provided, and other high-level bindings are available upon request.
libphidgets is a user-space access library for the Phidget devices. It provides a generic and flexible way to access and interact with the Phidgets, and comes with all the advantages of a user-space library. It is based on libhid (which is based on libusb), thus it requires no HID support in the kernel. Furthermore, it aims to support all operating system supported by libusb/libhid: Linux, BSD, OS X, and Windows.
netconf is a tool designed to replace Debian's ifupdown in a backwards-compatible manner while aiming for maximum extensibility and flexibility. While it can read existing interfaces files and execute hooks in much the same way, it ties in closer with aspects of network configuration that have become more and more important in the past decade: link and location autodetection, including a framework to configure printers, smarthosts, proxies, etc.; zeroconf; wireless LAN configuration; VPN; firewalling; advanced routing and traffic control; and more.
