Empulse is a new packaging format for Linux distributions. It includes a suite of tools for building packages, as well as strict policy for building packages. It is an experiment in the usability of development and release tools for distributors.

Empulse 0.3.0

Empulse 0.3.0 is a preview release to show off the software's current capabilities. Click the Downloads link in the Navigation menu on the right, to grab the source. You can also get the code from sourceforge.net's CVS repository using the /cvsroot/empulse root and the empulse module. Empulse 0.3.0 can now mostly fulfill the needs of a package management solution on Linux. It supports the creation of packages, and the installation, upgrade, and removal of those packages. These packages can contain scripts for registering into the MIME type handlers database, and similar functions. Empulse is almost ready for prime time use by a distribution. It needs only a few more features and some API and code clean-up. Please see the TODO file in CVS or the release for more information. Also, if you have any feature requests, please file them in the tracker or e-mail a developer.


Here's a shot of empulse being queried for the list of files in perl-XML-Simple:



EPittance is an integrated file sharing solution for the GNOME Desktop. It uses WebDAV and Rendezvous, via Howl, to allow users to share files in a local network, with almost zero configuration. Assuming a working installation of Howl, and GNOME 2.8, you need only install gnome-icon-theme 2.9.0, and epittance, and restart nautilus. Then you just go to the properties of a folder, and enable sharing in the "Sharing" tab. At that point, the files are shared over WebDAV on Rendezvous, and are visible using the service discovery support in GNOME 2.8 or Mac OS X, or any other system that supports service discovery using Rendezvous.
