Great Software from Sourceforge

Posted on 15 February 2004 by Demian Turner

If you’re not signed up for the Sourceforge newsletter, you won’t have received news on the latest slew of Open Source top scorers.  As well as the usual contenders a few new faces looked really interesting:

  • AMSN – a MSN messenger clone that does everything you’d expect with the exception of file transfer, imagine the reverse-engineering involved
  • POPFile  – fantastic software, when’s the IMAP version coming out?
  • TightVNC – I recently paid money for this kind of functionality, and it crashes every machine I install it one, am looking forward to trying out TightVNC
  • WinMerge – couldn’t live without it, very well integrated into Tortoise CVS, check out their WinTail as well
  • FCKeditor – interesting competitor to htmlArea, on my machine however it pops up an alert asking for the windows installer cd
  • phpGedView – a must check out item, sent me hunting for the best software to use to build the GED files
  • Webmin – a bad boy since way back, interesting there’s no equivalent in PHP

Enough waffle – here’s the list:
