Download Website 31 Oct 17:14 Moto 0.15.0


Moto is a server-side scripting language much like PHP or ColdFusion. The difference between Moto and other server-side scripting languages is that Moto pages can run interpreted (like PHP) or be natively compiled into dynamically loadable Apache modules (an entire Web site could be compiled into one .so file). It comes with a full suite of objects and functions for state and session management, MySQL and PostgreSQL database connectivity, and a slew of utility classes like stacks, hashtables, string buffers, etc. There is also an included interface definition language for exposing C functions to Moto. All object allocation occurs in a shared memory segment, so maintaining state in objects between page views is a snap.

Release Notes: This release adds support for querying a PostgreSQL database. It paves the way for future database support by relocating all current database drivers into codex.db.XXX extensions. New extension creation has been simplified. All extension dependencies are now listed in .i files. The ability to set the lock directory at runtime has been added. Various other bugs have been fixed in the state management subsystem and with Regex and String APIs.

udhcp Server/Client is an embedded DHCP client and server that can be compiled seperately (19k and 17k respectively), or as one combined binary (29k). The server stores its lease file periodically, or by a signal (for systems with flash memory) in terms of absolute time of lease expiration, or time remaining in a lease (for systems with no clocks). The client calls helper scripts to do the work of configuring the interfaces for more flexibility. udhcp has been included in BusyBox and is no longer maintained as a separate project.

Release Notes: There is a laundry list of minor bugfixes, including improved lease logic, a fix for occasional incorrect checksum computation on big endian hosts, improved renew behavior, improved signal handling, and a fix to config file parsing. The source now also integrates nicely with busybox; simply drop it into busybox/networking/udhcp whenever you want to sync.

Download Website 31 Oct 16:48 STPHPLibrary 0.6.0 (Phoenix)


STPHPLib is a suite of software components for developing object oriented Web-based applications. It uses PHP objects to encapsulate common GUI controls such as the check box, radio button, and tool bars, which are not necessarily present in HTML language, and allows them to be used to create sophisticated Web applications.

Release Notes: This release adds four new components (STPHPEdit, STPHPEditWithCaption, STPHPTextArea, and STPHPTextAreaWithCaption), bugfixes and code cleanups, and support for themes.

No download Website 31 Oct 16:46 FireHOL R5 v1.16


FireHOL a simple yet powerful way to configure stateful iptables firewalls. It can be used for almost any purpose, including control of any number of internal/external/virtual interfaces, control of any combination of routed traffic, setting up DMZ routers and servers, and all kinds of NAT. It provides strong protection (flooding, spoofing, etc.), transparent caches, source MAC verification, blacklists, whitelists, and more. Its goal is to be completely abstracted and powerful but also easy to use, audit, and understand.

Release Notes: This release adds better iptables code generation and a new command line argument (try) to leave the new firewall active only if the administrator types the word "commit" within 30 seconds. Otherwise, it restores the previous firewall and exits.

Download Website 31 Oct 16:45 Workrave 1.0.0


Workrave is a program that assists in the recovery and prevention of repetitive strain injury (RSI). The program frequently alerts you to take micro-pauses and rest breaks, and restricts you to your daily limit. It currently runs on GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows (using GTK/Win32).

Download Website 31 Oct 16:44 auditunlink 0.1.0


auditunlink is a Linux shared library that intercepts the unlink system call, and logs which process, program, and user initiated it, and to which file the call was applied. It is designed to be loaded with LD_PRELOAD or /etc/ld.so.preload, and allows system administrators to log file deletions even if a user has the proper file system permissions to perform the deletion.

Release Notes: This release includes a configure script and a configure option to only log unlink() calls from the rm command. Also included is an AUTHORS file which credits various people that have helped create/improve the module.

Download Website 31 Oct 16:40 g4u 1.8


g4u ("ghost for unix") is a boot-floppy/CD that allows one to easily clone PC hard disks by using FTP. This is often done to deploy a common setup on a number of PCs. The floppy/CD offers two functions: it uploads the compressed image of a local hard disk to an FTP server, and then it can retrieve that image via FTP, uncompress it, and write it back to disk. Network configuration is fetched via DHCP. As the hard disk is processed as an image, any filesystem and operating system can be deployed using g4u. Easy cloning of local disks as well as partitions is also supported.

Release Notes: This, the "Pumpkin" release, can sync with NetBSD 1.6, and includes drivers for USB, RAID cards, Gigabit Ethernet, and Token Ring, As a Halloween special, it comes with an ISO image file in addition to a floppy image, so it can be booted from a CD instead of a floppy.

No download Website 31 Oct 14:03 Eterm 0.9.2


Eterm is a vt102 terminal emulator intended as a replacement for xterm. It is designed with a Freedom of Choice philosophy, leaving as much power, flexibility, and freedom as possible in the hands of the user. It is designed to look good and work well, but takes a feature-rich approach rather than one of minimalism. Current features include color support, background images (all Imlib-supported formats), theme support, and pseudo-transparency.

Release Notes: This is primarily a bugfix release. However, one new feature in particular was added. Escreen provides a unique interface between Eterm and GNU screen, facilitating multiple sessions in a single Eterm window.

Download Website 31 Oct 14:03 Kernel Mode Linux 2.5.45_001


Kernel Mode Linux is a technology which enables the execution of user programs in a kernel mode. In Kernel Mode Linux, user programs can access kernel address space directly. Unlike kernel modules, user programs are executed as ordinary processes (except for their privilege level), so scheduling and paging are performed as usual. Although it seems dangerous, the safety of the kernel can be ensured through such methods as static type checking, software fault isolation, and so forth.

Release Notes: This version has been merged with the 2.5.45 Linux kernel.

Download No website 31 Oct 14:03 Nuxeo Platform 2.1


Nuxeo Platform provides a framework and set of components to address document management and collaboration needs, including metadata/taxonomies, versioning, lifecyle management, workflow, relations, searching, reporting, transformation, auditing, and retention. Its flexible extension system, based on OSGi, allows developers to quickly configure and extend the platform by creating new components. Its default Web user interface, based on the JSF standard, uses AJAX to create a pleasant user experience. It can also be accessed by a rich client interface through the use of Web services, for instance using the Eclipse-based Nuxeo RCP rich client platform.


Release Notes: This release should work (with some restrictions) on Windows. It adds support for user and administrator configured boxes (aka "portlets"), and several other enhancements.

No download Website 31 Oct 11:41 Java XML View 0.2


JXV (Java XML View) is a library which allows for Java objects to be given "XML Views", and for those views to be read back into objects. It supports both SAX and DOM output, and can read XML input from any SAX-compliant parser. Resulting DOM trees are dynamic, and reflect changes made to the object model even after they were created. It fully supports namespaces in its XML views, and can correctly parse and read XML content with namespaces. It also uses a pluggable architecture which allows XML view factories to be configured and loaded at runtime.

Release Notes: This release adds JDK 1.3 support. The exception handling mechanism's dependency on JDK1.4-style wrapped exceptions was eliminated, and now JDK1.3 can run JXV (although the performance under 1.3 is noticeably worse).
