imgseek.

it is an image collecting program. Its main feature is to find images that are visually similar to each other.  I did not find anything similar in newer programs. Maybe I do not know the right programs.

Other than that, it is slow and buggy. It uses qt3.

ion3
Its programmer dumped Linux and became Windows user. I still use ion, and imho it is the best window manager for my needs.

Re: Favorite dead open source project?

Oh, there are many programs that are (quite) dead and which I would like to be alive:
cplay - curses frontend to mpg123 and ogg123
unison - the best desktop-synchronizer, I haven't found an alternative app for this
kde 3 - I know, there is trinity, but AFAIK it is a one man show :-(
kuickshow - kde3 image viewer

Hmm, this thread reminds me of things I've missed somewhat ... Would have liked to see avisynth3, it has been years since an update to quanta+, kuickshow had a nice minimalistic interface but Gwenview has replaced it well enough. I miss KSokoban also.

Re: Favorite dead open source project?

I still use multi-gnome-terminal which means compiling all the GTK1 dependencies.  And it's still worth it.  Terminator comes close in features but it's still lacking a few things that MGT has

Geeqie has a deduplicate feature that can find similar images. I think it relies on a post-processed colour histogram.

Hell yeah! I too still continue to use XMMS. I know there's Audacious, but it's not really it.

Golem window manager. For some reason I really liked that software, even tried making some themes for it, it was a really adorable project. smile

I second this idea. Strangely, at least for some of us, Gnome is now a dead project. I don't really see Gnome-Shell as a continuation of Gnome in any sense. It's just an entirely new desktop, from a UI perspective. That's fine. But it would be great to keep Gnome 2 alive.

The Amarok 1.4 branch. Fortunately, it lives on as Clementine, so I do not know whether this one counts.

Re: Favorite dead open source project?

They've updated gnome-panel for Gnome 3 with a lot of improvements, and you can use Mutter in Fallback mode, or any other window manager. But yeah, I don't think applets and the panels will be actively developed unless some old-school users take the reigns- they fixed a lot of the old issues with it and optimized it, though. So I doubt it will become unusable any year soon. But yeah, Gnome 1 is dead, KDE 3 is barely breathing, etc.

I'd say my favorite dead project is Joe's WM (has been slow for a long time, and no updates since 2008, ie. when KDE 4 came out). It's what helped me to bring my old computer back from the dead so very long ago. D: Oh, the memories. That thing still sits there in the corner, kind of working on 112 MB of RAM. @_@ It's madness.

Re: Favorite dead open source project?

Half the programs I use are dead :S. I guess the ones I'd pick are:

* KSirtet - best Tetris clone I've seen
* Exmap - the only memory analysis tool I've seen that doesn't double-count shared libraries
* Longene - implementation of Wine at the kernel level which has only been dead for a year so maybe there is still hope...

On the website it looks like there's been activity as recently as yesterday. Is this project dead?
