Play midi files via external midi devices or soft synth.
Playmidi is a curses and SDL-based MIDI file player for Linux and MacOS (windows support planned) It supports software rendering of midi files via SDL audio and can also output midi events to external midi devices (in time with SDL audio soft synth) via both alsa sequencer api (linux) and coremidi api (osx). Soft synth rendering supports sf2 files (soundfont 2.0) but does not require any sf2 files to be installed for sound. Fallback output is available via sine/saw/triangle/square wave synthesis. Math-based synthesis is planned to evolve over time to support most of the features found in a minimoog voyager, and wavetable based sf2 support is expected to evolve to properly emulate all the features of a roland sc88 (but not there yet). Additionally there are issues with some sf2 files, but currently most development in the git tree has happened with one you can find via google search called Scc1t2.sf2. It provides a good starting point for those without external midi hardware

extentions to slackpkg for third-party repositories
Slackpkg is a good package manager for slackware that help the user to keep updated its installation. The Slackpkg+ project is a simple plugin that allow the user to add third-party repositories to slackpkg so to use a single tool for keep update the slackware installation and to install non-official packages. Like slackpkg, slackpkg+ leave unchanged the slackware philosophy becouse the user take full control of installation process. Slackpkg+ also allow to install and keep updated the alienbob's compat32 libraries so to have a multilib system without download and install it manually. Slackpkg+ is NOT a new tool with new commands. The user can continue to use the standard slackpkg command line: # slackpkg update gpg # slackpkg update # slackpkg install openjdk # slackpkg upgrade-all etc..

Hacker-like Retro Chat.
Remember those Hacker movies chat applications? Yes, those with the green chars that appeared one by one on the screen, in real time, as the remote user typed them. That's what InstaChat aims for, a retro, multiplatform*, ncurses based real time chat, in which each key you press is directly sent through the network to the peer you are talking to. Checkout the Blog(Developers News) for NEWS! *Only tested on windows, but the only used libraries are ncurses and boost for socket and thread support so it should compile fine wherever these libraries run.

ncurses VCard 3.0 contact management editor
A vcard 3.0 contact management editor developed for ncurses. It can: - load a vcf file - show all the contacts in a list - show more information about a single contact - perform a simple search in the contacts list - edit contacts - support UTF-8 (currently not on WIN32, though I'm not sure WIN32 console is actually able to support UTF-8) - convert the VCF(s) to Pine/Alpine addressbook format - import images from files as contacts photos The idea is based upon rolo (which you can find at SourceForge.net, too), but no original code remains. What is still not working: - showing a pretty screen for the contact details (for now it simply dump the information in vcard format)
