Fabula is a Python game engine suitable for adventure, role-playing, and strategy games and digital interactive storytelling. It offers a client-server architecture, an event-based protocol, multiplayer and networking capabilities, a multi-threaded server, an abstract, visualization-agnostic model of a game world, an asset manager, and a plugin system. Gameplay can be recorded and played back. The code is well documented and runs on Linux and MS Windows (it should work on OS X, too, but this has not yet been tested). Fabula can be used as a library to develop your own games. As an alternative, you can use the included Pygame-based graphical editor and the default game engine.
Release Notes: This is the first alpha release, and probably only useful for a sneak peek. The API is still likely to change. API docs are included, but end user documentation is still missing. The included editor and Pygame engine are still works in progress.

Zutils is a collection of utilities able to deal with any combination of compressed and uncompressed files transparently. If any given file, including standard input, is compressed, its decompressed content is used. Compressed files are decompressed on the fly; no temporary files are created. These utilities are not wrapper scripts but safer and more efficient C++ programs. In particular the "--recursive" option is very efficient in those utilities supporting it. The provided utilities are zcat, zcmp, zdiff, zgrep, ztest, and zupdate. The supported formats are bzip2, gzip, lzip, and xz. The compressor to be used for each format is configurable at runtime.
Release Notes: Configure now allows the selection of diff and grep programs to use. A deadlock in zcmp, which happened when files differed, has been fixed. A deadlock in zgrep, which happened when a binary file matched, has been fixed.

Ora2Pg is a Perl module to export an Oracle database schema to a PostgreSQL compatible schema. It connects your Oracle database, extracts its structure, and generates an SQL script that you can load into your PostgreSQL database. It dumps the database schema (tables, views, sequences, indexes, grants) with primary, unique, and foreign keys into PostgreSQL syntax without editing the SQL code generated. It also dump Oracle data into PostgreSQL DB as online process or into a file. You can choose what columns can be exported for each table.
Release Notes: This release fixes all pending issues with export of Oracle BLOB to PostgreSQL ByteA. It also includes 3 new configuration directives to extend Oracle to PostgreSQL export capabilities.
RBridge is a secure remote Ethernet bridge solution for Linux. It connects two trusted Ethernet segments remotely over UDP using either IPv4 or IPv6 transport. RBridge uses SHA-2 (precisely SHA-256) for authentication, AES for encryption and timestamps for protection against replay attacks. Using a registry mechanism and UDP protocol, RBridge is able to connect directly to the peer from within NAT or firewall protected areas by using a special hole punching technique (thus requiring no configuration at the connecting routers). For this functionality, RBridge itself is able to act as a registry service for any associated pair of RBridges.
Release Notes: The MAC address filtering capabilities have been extended to support separate allow and deny lists for both directions. The manual has been updated accordingly; a protocol description has been added.

Release Notes: All known bugs were fixed. This is the last release before the next major stable release.
KiCad EDA is software for the creation of electronic schematic diagrams and printed circuit board artwork. It is a set of four programs and a project manager: Eeschema (schematic entry), Pcbnew (a board editor), Gerbview (a Gerber viewer (photoplotter documents)), and Cvpcb (a footprint selector for components used in the circuit design). Kicad is the project manager. It includes a 3D visualization feature.
Release Notes: Numerous features were enhanced and added: vector fonts added, layout undo added, polygon fill added, etc.
Berkeley DB Java Edition is a high performance transactional storage engine written entirely in Java. Like the highly successful Berkeley DB product, it executes in the address space of the application without the overhead of client/server communication. It stores data in the application's native format, so no runtime data translation is required. It supports full ACID transactions and recovery, and provides an easy-to-use interface, allowing programmers to store and retrieve information quickly, simply, and reliably.
Release Notes: A bug that could cause an EnvironmentFailureException with LOG_FILE_NOT_FOUND during recovery was fixed. A bug that prevents using a DPL class converter mutation for a proxy class was fixed. A bug that caused a hard deadlock when attempting to abort a transaction in one thread, while performing operations using the transaction in another thread was fixed. Now, rather than a hard deadlock, an IllegalStateException will be thrown in this circumstance.
Clonezilla is a partition or disk cloning tool similar to Symantec Ghost. It saves and restores only blocks in use on the hard drive if the file system is supported. For unsupported file systems, dd is used instead. It has been used to clone a 5 GB system to 40 clients in about 10 minutes.
Release Notes: The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2011/Jan/13). The Linux kernel was updated to 2.6.32-30. Language files were updated. The "-q1" option (i.e. force use of dd) was added in expert mode for device to device cloning. This can be useful if you want to clone an encrypted partition. An improvement was made to force the unmounting of the image repository before rebooting or shutting down Clonezilla live.

Config-Model provides a framework for editing and validating the content of any configuration file or data. With a configuration model (expressed in a data structure), Config-Model provides a user interface and a tool to validate configuration. An optional graphical (Perl/Tk) or curses interface can be used to edit configuration data that will be validated according to the user-provided model. Config-Model includes a model example for fstab and a small fstab demo.
Release Notes: The Debian::Dpkg::Copyright model was updated to the new CANDIDATE DEP-5 specification. Copyright files written for older specifications are migrated to the new specification. This should save a lot of typing from Debian packagers. In Value.pm, warn_if_match and warn_unless_match can now specify instructions to "fix" the value. In config-edit, the -apply-fixes option was added to apply the aforementioned fixes. The Debian control editor performs new checks for syntax and whether a "(>= vers)" is necessary or not.
GLib is a library containing many useful C routines for things such as trees, hashes, and lists. GLib was previously distributed with the GTK toolkit, but has been split off as of the developers' version 1.1.0.
Release Notes: Several minor bugs were fixed. Translations were updated.
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.
Release Notes: More widgets were converted to use GtkStyleContext directly. gtk-builder-convert now accepts a --target-version option. Minor bugs were fixed.
Rasqal is a C library for querying RDF graphs, supporting the SPARQL, RDQL, and LAQRS languages. It provides APIs for creating a query and parsing query syntax. It features pluggable triple-stores and matching interfaces, query engines for executing the queries, an API for manipulating results as bindings, and multiple ways to format the results to XML, CSV, TSV, and JSON. It uses the Raptor RDF parser to return triples from RDF content, and can alternatively work with the Redland RDF library's persistent triple stores. It is portable across many POSIX systems.
Release Notes: This version was changed to support only Raptor V2 (2.0.0+) and an ABI/API break was made to remove deprecated functions, types, and enums. It also added 7 SPARQL 1.1 editor's draft datetime and 9 string builtin functions with execution support. 4 LAQRS datetime extension builtin functions were added. Query language names were added for SPARQL 1.0, 1.1 Query and Update, 1.1 Query, and 1.1 Update and LAQRS. An XSD dateTime class and public API were added. Support for reading and writing RDF-encoded query result formats in RDF/XML and Turtle / N3 was added. Many other API additions, removals, and changes were made.
bind9_5_counters.pl is a script to extract values from the BIND 9.5 (and later) DNS server's XML statistics channel. It produces reports in Cricket MRTG and Cacti format, but it has only been tested with Cricket.
