Twin is a text-mode window environment. It turns a text terminal into a X11-style display with window manager, terminal windows, and can also serve as display for remote applications. Each terminal window provides the functions of a text-mode Linux console. Twin runs on X11, libggi, itself, the Linux console, and any termcap/ncurses-compatible tty. It supports multiple simultaneous displays, and can attach/detach each display on the fly.
fstransform is a tool to change a file-system from one format to another. For example, it can change from jfs, xfs, or reiser to ext2, ext3, or ext4. It works in-place and without the need for backup. It currently has been tested on Linux only. It uses a sparse file to create the new file-system image, moves all the files of the existing file-system into it, then remaps the sparse file to the original partition.
STMX is a high-performance Common Lisp library for composable Transactional Memory (TM), a concurrency control mechanism aimed at making concurrent programming easier to write and understand. Instead of traditional lock-based programming, one programs with atomic memory transactions: if a memory transaction returns normally it is committed. If it signals an error, it is rolled back. Transactions can safely run in parallel in different threads, are re-executed from the beginning in case of conflicts or if consistent reads cannot be guaranteed, and effects of a transaction are not visible from other threads until committed. This gives freedom from deadlocks, automatic rollback on failure, and aims to resolve the tension between granularity and concurrency.
Thanks for the appreciation, tallship!
I guess one of the reasons is that I am not actively working on twin anymore... just some sporadic bugfixes.
And let's not forget that twin is very " retro' ": using text windows when also your mobile has a graphical interface is, at best, a small niche.
The connection to linuz.sns.it is having big problems recently :-(
You will surely have more luck using one of the mirrors:
