I have started the development of yet another anidb UDP client.

It will be not a full client; I'm writing a reusable library, using Python and Twisted.

Name: anidblib
Programming Language: Python
Operating System: Posix, Win32

More details:
full support of the UDP API (if I have time)
integrated flood protection (I hope)
some extra utilities, such as file hash computation

Hey all, I'm actually going to attempt to finish a working notify client! (Because I don't see any others yet, thought I would do this community a serivice since it does me such a big one :))

Language : C++
Function : System tray notifications client
OS : Windows (Probably all, but for now i'll say XP)
contact : oo22
DL : currently nothing yet

I'll be working on this on and off, but i should have something to show in a month if all goes well.

Please use http://wiki.anidb.info/w/UDP_Clients now. If you still want to post here, ok, but that wikipage is more important. And please update the status. (If/when you give up/lose interest; move it down to dropped.)

Client name: Перегляд-А (Pereglyad-A)

OS: Windows, Linux
Programming language: Java
Functions: ANIME only, for semi-automated adding of titles to the local list of anime, probably similar to the goals of ACat
Not implemented: everything else

I am extending my existing anime collection program with semi-automatic addition of anime titles through anidb AIDs. My program is intended for Ukrainian users and its interface is in Ukrainian only (for now).
