This page contains several "tools" that should make searching and evaluating easier.

projects on hold

Sorry folks, but we decided to put all our software projects on hold - the main reason simply being lack of time. More recently the thing so called "real life" has been keeping both of us (Folkert & Patrick) rather busy. This is why development and support stalled.

Nevertheless, this should not make our software less attractive – it is still great software, mature enough for daily use. Therefore, please go ahead and download any of the packages and make use of it. Even better: Write us a nice email if you like it.

If you are a developer and interested in taking on the task of continuing one of the projects, then please contact us.
