A fast, powerful and adaptable GUI solution
Crazy Eddie's GUI (CEGUI) system is a graphical user interface C++ library. It was designed particularly for the needs of videogames, but the library is usable for non-game tasks, such as any other type of applications (rendering/visualisation/virtual reality) and tools. It is designed for user flexibility in look-and-feel, as well as being adaptable to the user's choice in tools and operating systems. Established in 2003, CEGUI sees continual, active development and remains one of the most powerful and most popular options for developers requiring an adaptable and efficient GUI solution. CEGUI is fully supported by the developers that created - and continue to develop - the library, and who are accessible via the project's dedicated internet forums and IRC channel. For more information, more screenshots and for news, check out out our homepage: http://cegui.org.uk The repository is now at bitbucket (including our issue/bug tracker): https://bitbucket.org/cegui

Hybrid energy-efficient digital currency
Novacoin is a decentralized electronic cash system based on an open-source, peer-to-peer internet protocol. It works without a central server or trusted parties. Users hold the ECDSA private keys to their own money and transact directly with each other, with the help of the network to check for double-spending. They are also able to participate in the network protection using own money or computing power. A hybrid Proof-of-Work & Proof-of-Stake scheme is used to provide a protection against double-spend. The main project repository: https://github.com/novacoin-project/novacoin

Volocian believes first and foremost that financial status shouldn’t be a barrier to entry in multimedia content creation. Whether you want to design a product or website, record a band, remix a song, or produce a feature length movie with professional post production graphics and effects, Volocian™ wants to help, even if you’re using borrowed hardware with no previous experience. We provide affordable products and services for any budget, including cost-free solutions for education and demo purposes, while everything we do is designed with ease of use and flexibility in mind, to suit everyone from novice hobbyists to expert professionals. Wherever possible, Volocian™ relies on free, open source, and cross-platform software to prevent vendor lock-in, planned obsolescence, and software as a service licensing. While we remain pragmatic about the use of proprietary software, as we’re aware of the feature limitations of some open source solutions, free solutions are preferred.

Transmission bittorrent with p2p streaming. Fast, stable, feature rich
November 1, 2017 Transmission is a respected Fast, Easy, and Free BitTorrent Client, as from their site https://transmissionbt.com/about/ Unofficial Windows build runs perfect either Windows service or daemon. 32 bit and 64 bit versions. 32 (runs everywhere), 64 only 64-bit Windows. Decision made to maintain choice 2.7x core rather than somewhat buggy 2.8x-2.9x cores. That's why you will see infrequent and less bug fixes than official branches. All the features of 2.8x-2.9x (except rename). Run this solid 2.77+ port for extended days, it doesn't crash or lock. Prime for seedbox use. The included remote GUI port is fine tuned to the daemon released here. Temporary piece support. https://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/532 plus many featured enhancements! Tested, stable enhancements users requested. Specifically modified and bug tested for Windows. Built with cygwin gcc/g++ compiler. Current release 14734-10 102717 https://github.com/cfpp2p/transmission/releases
