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.

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.

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.

The OVAL Interpreter is a freely available reference implementation that demonstrates the evaluation of OVAL Definitions. Based on a set of OVAL Definitions the interpreter collects system information, evaluates it, and generates a detailed OVAL Results file. Developed to demonstrate the usability of OVAL Definitions and to ensure correct syntax and adherence to the OVAL Schemas by definition writers, it is not a fully functional scanning tool nor an enterprise scanning tool. It is a simplistic, command-line application that has the ability to execute OVAL Content on an end system. To learn more about organizations that provide OVAL content and tools or otherwise support the OVAL Language, please see the OVAL Adoption Program (http://oval.mitre.org/adoption/).

A program that auto rotates the screen when the Thinkpad is rotated.
Using the sensor data provided by the Active Protection System, the program will auto rotate the screen to the desired orientation. Although IBM/Lenovo has software that does exactly this, it does not work for non-tablet versions. This program differs from the official one in that it allows you to customise the exact laptop orientation for the rotation to kick in. You can also select which orientation to (de)activate. For non-Thinkpad machines, this tool can work as a regular screen rotation shortcut on the tray. See readme file for details. Issues: Problems such as failure to rotate or blank screens may occur on certain systems. If you experience any issues, I appreciate it if you can post on the forum. Include your machine type, OS version, graphics card model and graphics driver version. Requirements: Thinkpad Active Protection System driver. Windows XP or above. (32 and 64 bit supported) Post on the forum if you have any requests. License switched to BSD.
