SIMD-accelerated libjpeg-compatible JPEG codec library
libjpeg-turbo is a JPEG image codec that uses SIMD instructions (MMX, SSE2, NEON, AltiVec) to accelerate baseline JPEG compression and decompression on x86, x86-64, ARM, and PowerPC systems. On such systems, libjpeg-turbo is generally 2-6x as fast as libjpeg, all else being equal. On other types of systems, libjpeg-turbo can still outperform libjpeg by a significant amount, by virtue of its highly-optimized Huffman coding routines. In many cases, the performance of libjpeg-turbo rivals that of proprietary high-speed JPEG codecs. libjpeg-turbo implements both the traditional libjpeg API as well as the less powerful but more straightforward TurboJPEG API. libjpeg-turbo also features colorspace extensions that allow it to compress from/decompress to 32-bit and big-endian pixel buffers (RGBX, XBGR, etc.), as well as a full-featured Java interface.
An EFI boot manager utility
rEFInd is a fork of the rEFIt boot manager. Like rEFIt, rEFInd can auto-detect your installed EFI boot loaders and it presents a pretty GUI menu of boot options. rEFInd goes beyond rEFIt in that rEFInd better handles systems with many boot loaders, gives better control over the boot loader search process, and provides the ability for users to define their own boot loader entries.

Windows Console Emulator, Far Manager plugins
ConEmu-Maximus5 is a Windows console window enhancement (local terminal emulator), which presents multiple consoles and simple GUI applications as one customizable tabbed GUI window with various features. Initially, the program was created as a companion to Far Manager, my favorite shell replacement. Today, ConEmu can be used with any other console application or simple GUI tools (like PuTTY for example). ConEmu is an active project, open to suggestions. Disclaimer. ConEmu is not a shell, so it does not provide "shell features" like tab-completion, command history and others. ConEmu does not provide remote access (SSH/Telnet/...) too. ConEmu is advanced console window (local terminal) where you can run any shell or remote access client of your choice. Also you may try Clink for bash-style completion in cmd.exe and PSReadLine or PowerTab in powershell.exe.

EE Keeper is a saved game editor for Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition.
EE Keeper is saved game editor for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. This project is a continuation of Shadow Keeper, originally released by Aaron O'Neil in 2000 for Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and Throne of Bhaal. This version will still work with the original BG2. Currently, it will only work natively on Windows, although it has been tried through Wineskin on Mac OS X and currently works, though no guarantee is in place that this will continue to be. Maximising that support is a priority, however. Please note: unless otherwise stated, EE Keeper will be archived in Zip format and uploaded. Please note, any support ticket that is created should be watched in case any extra information is needed. If you do not plan to keep and eye on your ticket and you have an account on the official Baldur's Gate forum, please be sure to provide your user name with the ticket in case any further information is required.
