Galeon is a GNOME Web browser based on Gecko (the Mozilla rendering engine). It is fast, has a light interface, and is fully standards-compliant.
Release Notes: Galeon now has a password manager, support for printing, and uses GNOME dialogs for prompts (please note that all these new features only work with Mozilla from CVS). There is also a "New user" wizard that also helps with building a smart bookmarks toolbar, a new history dialog with grouping and searching, a docked history view, and a new look for the bookmarks editor. Keyboard shortcuts have been added to all dialogs, tab close buttons are now deactivated when a tab is not at front, there is an automatic restart when interacting with sessions, and a link click sound has been added. The "use image as background" option has been improved, and the "New" button in the toolbar is now a drag and drop target. Numbered shortcuts for the Go menu and back/forward histories have been added. Bookmarks can now have keyboard shortcuts by putting an underscore in the title, and date and time visited is shown in the bookmarks editor. Also, the saving of the history as well as window closing has been made faster. Finally, there were some memory leaks plugged, a lot of other bugfixes, and some usability improvements.
JFS for Linux is IBM's journaling filesystem, ported to Linux.
Release Notes: This release includes fixes to the file system. The rest of the utilities have been changed to use standard types. Both the file system and the utilities have been changed to use endian macros, so that JFS will now store the meta-data as little endian when running on all architectures. With this change, you must reformat all of the JFS partitions using the new mkfs.jfs included in this drop, if you are running on a big-endian system.
Services for IRC Networks (or just Services for short) provides for definitive nickname and channel ownership, automatic channel mode setting, memo (short message) storage and retrieval, and greater IRC operator control over the network.
Doxygen is a cross-platform, JavaDoc-like documentation system for C++, C, Objective-C, C#, Java, IDL, Python, PHP, VHDL, and Fortran. Doxygen can be used to generate an on-line class browser (in HTML) and/or an off-line reference manual (in LaTeX or RTF) from a set of source files. Doxygen can also be configured to extract the code-structure from undocumented source files. This includes dependency graphs, class diagrams and hyperlinked source code. This type of information can be very useful to quickly find your way in large source distributions.
Release Notes: This release contains number of bug fixes, a couple of new features, and some internal clean-up.
KmusicdB is a music information manager for KDE, using PostgreSQL as a backend. You can add your music collection to the database, and view it in a convenient browser.

LibESMTP is a library to manage posting (or submission of) electronic mail using SMTP to a preconfigured Mail Transport Agent (MTA) such as Exim. It may be used as part of a Mail User Agent (MUA) or another program that must be able to post electronic mail but where mail functionality is not the program's primary purpose. LibESMTP is not intended to be used as part of a program that implements a Mail Transport Agent.
Release Notes: A show-stopping bug in the authentication code that prevented a program from authenticating more than once has been fixed. Also, the web site and the README file omitted the fact that Ltdl from GNU Libtool must be installed to build libESMTP; this has been fixed.
Data::Address::Standardize is a Perl module that uses libwww facilities to automatically standardize a U.S. postal address via the United States Postal Service's standardizer service on their web site. Usage restrictions apply. See the included README or POD documentation.
Release Notes: This release splits out Scrape::USPS::ZipLookup functionality into a separate module. This is intended to be the final release of Data::Address::Standardize, unless/until it is converted into something that does standardization without utilizing the USPS ZipLookup web application.
Sluice is a workflow engine Jabber component. Its goal is to allow users to create and configure an automated workflow or business process with ease. The clients should be very simple with all the work being done on the server/component end. The main component and modules are done in Perl. The Web client is done in PHP.
Release Notes: The tools now use XML instead of passing data as tab-delimited text. Content was separated from display. The configuration no longer requires a static HTML form. Other small enhancements were made.
dkimap4 is a fast, easy-to-install IMAP4 daemon for UNIX and Win32 platforms. It supports mail folder quotas, ACL, UID+.

All known memory leaks have been fixed. A bug in context evalution was fixed. Several major bugs in the hash tables were fixed.
The PerlDL project aims to turn Perl into an efficient numerical language for scientific computing. The PDL module gives standard Perl the ability to compactly store and speedily manipulate the large N-dimensional data sets which are the bread and butter of scientific computing. e.g. $a=$b+$c can add two 2048x2048 images in only a fraction of a second. The aim is to provide tons of useful functionality for scientific and numeric analysis.
Release Notes: The new PDL::Lvalue module makes use of Perl 5.6's lvalue subroutines. This version was updated to work with Perl version 5.6.1 and to improve the documentation. Bugs fixes were made for several memory leaks, "pow" and "minimum_n_ind" functions, and test failures related to OpenGL.
X-Chat is a fully-featured graphical IRC client using the GTK toolkit. Optionally it can be compiled to use GNOME and Perl scripting.
Release Notes: The server hostname was added as $3 for the quit print event. user@host now gets logged in query windows. A workaround was made for IPv6 build failure on some glibcs. DCC won't try to resume if the local file is bigger than the remote offer. A horizontal scrollbar now appears in the channel-list window when needed. Perl functions for manipulating the userlist of a channel were added. The topic box now gets a tooltip of the current topic. Fixes were made for the gnome-panel code. for fd leaks in /exec and python, for the "Marked Away" and "Save Settings on exit" options when using --disable-gnome, for xtext drawing/wordwrap and textmarking bugs, for color paste, and for titlebar text for notices/snotices tabs.

Release Notes: Many code cleanups and bug fixes were made.
GTK, which stands for the Gimp ToolKit, is a library for creating graphical user interfaces. It is designed to be small and efficient, but still flexible enough to allow the programmer freedom in the interfaces created. GTK provides some unique features over standard widget libraries.
NeoMail is a web-based email client written in Perl. It provides access to a machine's local mail spools without requiring a POP3 server to be running, and without giving users shell access. It supports sending and receiving attachments, multiple folders, user themes and preferences, templates for interface generation, quotas, language translations, etc.
Release Notes: Users can now add the sender of a message to their address book by clicking an image link from the folder overview. A message parsing bug introduced in 1.23 has been fixed, and a couple of internationalization glitches were fixed.
Net::Server is an extensible class-oriented Internet server written in Perl. The base Net::Server class contains the bulk of the functionality but can easily be extended with subclasses, process hooks, or overridden methods. The subclasses included with the distribution include single process, forking server, pre-forking server, and inetd server. All subclasses (except for inetd) allow for binding to and accepting on multiple ports. It has the ability to read a conf file, take command line arguments, chroot to a different directory, become another user, become another group, maintain a pid file, and specify log file. Subclasses contain extended functionality such as min_servers, max_servers, and spare_servers. Written to be light but powerful, Net::Server is intended to be the back end layer of FTP, SMTP, HTTP, ad serving, POP3, and other services, with protocol-specific functions layered on top.
Release Notes: SIGHUP with UDP now works. Peer info is correctly accessed under UDP. Net::Server::INET will not allow one server to do both TCP and UDP without special parameters being passed to the server. This would have been implemented using getsockopt but getsockopt is not enabled by default under most Linux distros.
oMail-webmail is a Webmail solution for mail servers based on qmail and optionally vmailmgr or vpopmail. The mail is read directly from maildirs on the hard disk, which is much quicker than using protocols like POP3 or IMAP. Other features includes multiple language support (English, French, German, Japanese, Chinese, and many more), HTML and pictures inline display, folders, and address book support.
Release Notes: A security fix regarding remote IP checking was made. New configuration variables for fixed/variable font were added. FreeBSD-specific patches were integrated. A new translation was made for Czech. The addressbook was completely redesigned, but is backward-compatible.
