Any of you that have passed through UCD Internet Society will know about flash. It's our menu shell. It's always been under the GPL but we only got around to releasing it properly last September. I've just released version 0.9.3 which is stable, and thought I'd let you know in the hope that some of you might be interested in it.
Here's the description Niall put on freshmeat originally:
"Flash is an attempt to address the security problems associated with giving local unix users full shell access. It is a (hopefully) secure shell which will only execute administrator defined programs, while also being very user friendly. Flash is fully windowed (using an ncurses interface), is driven by cursor keys, has hotkey support, has fascist logging support and more."
