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
