It supports multiple different ways of sending outgoing articles to other hosts, as well as multiple different storage mechanisms for articles and article overview information via internal APIs. Compared to other news servers, INN is more complicated with a steeper learning curve, but is extremely flexible and configurable, comes with a large suite of supporting programs, and supports embedded filters in either Perl or Python.
Release Notes: The single group LIST ACTIVE is now hidden if users don't have permission to access it. Fixes were made to XHDR and XPAT header parsing, CNFS is now more robust against crashes, and a tradspool memory leak was fixed. Some bugs with pgpverify and GnuPG were also fixed, along with compilation fixes for Perl 5.8.0, BerkeleyDB 4.x, Linux and large files, Tru64, and ReiserFS. Some obscure problems in the header handling of nnrpd were fixed, and the sample control.ctl file was updated.
imgSeek is a photo collection manager capable of searching through an image database, in which the query is expressed either as a rough sketch painted by the user or as another image you supply. You simply draw a rough sketch of what you want to find and imgSeek displays for you a thumbnail view of the best matches. You may also find duplicate images automatically, generate Web photo albums, edit image metadata including EXIF JPEG data, organize images into a keyword hierarchy, and more.
Release Notes: Huge speed improvements were achieved with a new C extension module. An HTML photo album generator was included, and image metadata is now supported. Some bugfixes were also made.

CONNection ManaGeR (connmgr) is a Unix command line client wrapper script. It is a handy commandline utility for people who have many remote user accounts that are accessed via ssh, sftp, scp, ftp, telnet, rlogin, rsh, and rcp. connmgr includes sshmgr (Open SSH client wrapper), scmdmgr (which allows for remote command execution), sftpmgr (which is like sshmgr but starts an sftp session), scpget/scpput (scp wrappers), ftpmgr (same as sftpmgr but for normal FTP), telnetmgr (same as sshmgr but for telnet), rloginmgr (same as sshmgr but for rlogin), rshmgr (same as scmdmgr but for rsh), and rcpget/rcpput (rcp wrappers). All of these utilize a shared configuration file for user account profiles. Passwords are not stored in this plain text configuration file and the use of RSA keys for SSH connections is strongly suggested.
Release Notes: ftpmgr and telnetmgr were added, the config file format and documentation were updated, many little fixes were made, and the code was cleaned up.
Monkey HTTP Daemon is a very fast and lightweight Web server for Linux. It uses a hybrid networking model based on asynchronous calls (event-driven) and fixed threads, which makes it scalable and capable of attending thousands of clients per second. It provides a powerful API for C and is ideal for embedded devices, thanks to its small core and plugin architecture.
Release Notes: An ISO 8859-15 character table was added to chars.c, header files were added for every module, and a new HideVersion variable in monkey.conf stops the version of the server from being revealed to clients. Information about the server protocol was added and a Forbidden header is now sent for all files with incorrect permissions.
libextractor is a library used to extract meta-data from files of arbitrary type. It is designed to use helper-libraries to perform the actual extraction, and to be trivially extendable by linking against external extractors for additional file types. The goal is to provide developers of file-sharing networks, file managers, and WWW-indexing bots with a universal library to obtain meta-data about files. It includes a shell-command and bindings for Java (JNI) and Python.
Release Notes: An extractor for detecting various MIME types was added. Portability to C compilers other than GCC was improved, and minor bugfixes were made.
MT2 Thumbnailer (Make Thumbnails 2) is another program for generating HTML photo albums from pictures. It gives users a great deal of control over the comments shown alongside each picture, and the way the pictures are ordered and grouped. Having descriptions, reflections, quips, and quotes in a picture album makes it much more memorable and fun to write.
Release Notes: The output plugin interface was modified, and the ability to generate an HTML page with navigation buttons for each picture was added. Include files were also added.
gLabels is a lightweight program for creating labels and business cards for the GNOME desktop environment. It is designed to work with various laser/ink-jet peel-off label and business card sheets that you'll find at most office supply stores.
Release Notes: This version adds object rotation and alignment commands, a status bar, document merge enhancements, and several template enhancements.
The number perl script will print the English name of a number. One can print names of extremely large numbers (e.g. 1e1234567). Number can be run on the command line, or as a CGI script when run as 'number.cgi'. Number prints names in both the American and European naming system. It can also print the decimal expansion of a number in either naming system.
Release Notes: A bug where the names of numbers greater than 10^(6*10^15) in European systems and greater than 10^(3*10^15) in the American system were incorrect was fixed. Some work-arounds for broken versions of the Math::BigInt module were implemented, and the Web size limit was increased.
FOPPS (Feature Oriented Product Planning System) is a tool that helps you to design your software product line. It provides feature-based configuration to maintain your core assets and applications.
Release Notes: Serious bugs were fixed in UndoManager and ProjectContainer, the evaluation of file attachments and product compilations, and the actions for project timing and selection in views.

JTMOS stands for "Jari Tuominen's Minimal Operating System". The JTMOS operating system project aims to create a fully functional multitasking x86 operating system. It primarily targets low-end systems with small hard disks, preferably i586 family or newer. Currently focus in the project is on communication, TCP/IP stack, and building up FAT file system support. JTMOS mimics some features from Linux-style operating systems like the root directory system. JTMOS can already boot up from DOS, or independently from hard disk or floppy disk with its own custom bootloader.
Release Notes: This release fixes a major bug in the kernel memory management system. Support for mounting a root file system from either floppy disk or hard disk was added. The system is now stable enough to run various programs. UNIX style cp, top, mkfs, and cat programs were added. The main shell (SQSH) now supports loadable scripts. This release snapshot contains a prebuilt boot disk and root disk for easy testing.
grepmail searches a normal or compressed mailbox (gzip, bzip2, or tzip) for a given regular expression and returns those emails that match the query. It also supports searches constrained by date and size.
Release Notes: This release documents the Storable dependency and makes it optional, fixes a test case bug, and changes the semantics of -s to support size ranges.
