I started two open-source projects at SourceForge today.
The first is a fork of Steven Rubin's Electric Editor software. I am trying to improve the display performance of the existing code, and make it a flexible platform for tool integration on local and remote hosts. My goal is to make gMEMS a comprehensive GPLd interface to the powerful tools of other vendors (Synopsys in particular).
I also started another project, to develop software support for PCI audio data communications on Linux. I hope to demonstrate 100 kbps for $20 per host using acoustic networking, and develop software support for adaptive acoustic transceiver arrays.
