Posted in Beta, Development Software, Linux, Site News, Software Companies, Utilities

Nero Burning ROM

As a Windows user, it is quite likely that you (Windows users) will agree with me that Nero Burning ROM is probably one of the best, if not the best, CD burning application. Now, a Linux version has also been developed to explore the possibility of show-casing its burning capability in Linux operating systems.

Nero Linux 3 (currently under Beta development) is powered by the industry-leading Nero Burning ROM engine. It is able to record the following formats:

  • - CD
  • - DVD
  • - HD DVD
  • - Blu-ray

SMPlayer 0.3.34

Posted in Audio, Linux, Site News, Utilities, Video, Windows


MPlayer is a very used multimedia (video) player in Linux. To compliment the use of this utility, SMPlayer is developed as a complete front-end for MPlayer.

This application uses MPlayer as the engine, and has the capability to play the most known video and audio formats without the need of external or third-party codec. It has some of the basic features, such as playing DVDs and VCDs, to advanced features such as MPlayer filters.

With SMPlayer, it has the ability to remember the settings of all the files you have played. Therefore, you will resume the movie from where you have stopped, and there is no need to worry about having to open that movie and configure the settings, e.g. audio track, subtitles and volume, etc.

Fast Image Resizer 0.87

Posted in Fun Stuff, Graphics, Site News, Utilities, Windows

Fast Image Resizer

Batch resizing image is now easier with adionSoft Fast Image Resizer 0.87. Designed specifically to perform the task of image resizing on very large number of images is now easier and definitely faster.

The latest release of version 0.87 also includes the capability to add filename selection and auto crop images options.

Although there are several other programs that can perform similar tasks, but it’s not easy if you want to process thousands of images as quickly as possible. This software is simply dedicated to the task of resizing, and therefore makes the operations very quickly.

Smultron 3.0.1 – Text Editor

Posted in Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Utilities


Created and designed by Peter Borg, Smultron 3.0 is a free text editor for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. This application is rather easy to use.

Despite its simplicity, it is also a rather powerful software. It has been designed to contain all the advantages of a Cocoa application and some of its features, such as tabs, line numbers, syntax colour support, multiple language, function list, text encoding support, snippets, toolbar, status bar, preview, split window, document search and several others.

Embedded within the text editor, there are also some hidden preferences which expert users can configure to suit their needs. More information can be found here.

Notes 0.9 for Linux

Posted in Fun Stuff, Linux, Site News, Utilities


Developed for the IRIX desktop, Notes 0.9 for Linux is a small ViewKit/Motif applet that provides a “post-it” -like notes function. It is designed to integrate with toolchest, but it can be run from the command line as well.

Notes uses the file format of the excellent MS-Windows post-it note application called “Stickies”.

So, basically, I need not elaborate further, Notes 0.9 for Linux is perhaps a “sticky” replacement for Linux users.
