Thanks. Added. i mixed that categories up a bit - Icecast and Libretime went to Graphices and Media and Delta Chat into Productivity and collaboration.

SpamAssassin reminded me to add Scrollout F1

When I think of SpamAssassin I kind of picture saying it in a Sean Connery accent -"SpamAshashin Mish Moneypenny. Yesh."

But that's just me.

ReNamer - rule-driven file renaming
CSVed - CSV file editor
PicPick - screen capture, image editing etc.

Not exactly open source, but for those looking for Kindle books to read I recommend signing up for the daily Free Kindle books newsletter for (mostly) free Kindle books. It has saved me a fortune :)

Thanks, added.

from when we started the list I was hesitant to add Odoo - great software but from the time they rebranded as Odoo from OpenERP they've seemed to me that they might turn their back on FLOSS at some point like SugarCRM did. I read recently an article that they are doing well though.

Odoo fans should also check out Flectra which is a decent fork of Odoo.

Software:

Julius
LibreArp
Multitextor
YT-DLP
NTFS-3G
OnionShare
Claws Mail
Open Horizon
Amnesia

Any interest in adding open source hardware to your list? Example:

OpenRISC
RISC-V
FunKey S

Also, SPDX is now an official ISO recognised standard but not sure where it would go on the list...
Thanks. I've added the software items.

I think OS hardware merits its own list. I also intended to keep this list focused on FLOSS applications and do that well (which is why I haven't included distro's apart from a couple of specialised ones like Security Onion.)

Please don't think of this as my list - you of all people have contributed at least as much as I have, if not more. I know I have couple of opinions about what should be included but that is mainly to promote quality Open software versus proprietary freeware.

Yes, probably best to limit it to just software.

I expected there to be more contributors.

Yes, I also thought that a few more would chip in. But i think there's a lot of value showcased on this list for those who are interested so it's been a worthwhile exercise I think. A couple of nuggets that i didn't already know about have turned up!
