Download No website 15 Jan 16:41 Pagekite.py 0.3.10


Pagekite is software to make servers on "localhost" visible to the wider Internet. It can be used by Web developers to show off their works in progress to clients or colleagues, embedded developers who need direct access to devices in the field, or as an alternative to dynamic DNS for individuals/hobbyists who would rather host their own content than rely on 3rd party hosting. It creates and maintains a tunnel between your server on localhost and a remote "front-end" (a reverse proxy). Only the front-end has to have a visible IP address; the server itself can reside on a heavily firewalled computer, a mobile device, or even an anonymous node on the Tor network.

Release Notes: This is a minor bugfix release, correcting some edge cases in transient I/O error handling.

No download Website 15 Jan 16:37 Voodoo Compiler 0.7.0


The Voodoo compiler is an implementation of the Voodoo programming language. The Voodoo programming language is a low-level programming language, abstracting over the platform's instruction set and calling conventions, but otherwise leaving the programmer free to do anything at all. The Voodoo compiler supports multiple target platforms and provides a stand-alone compiler, as well as a Ruby module for programmatic code generation.


Release Notes: Newly added features include blocks, chained conditionals (else if), and shift and rotate operations. The return action may now occur without an expression to evaluate.

Download Website 15 Jan 16:35 LON-CAPA 2.10.0.RC2


LON-CAPA (The LearningOnline Network with CAPA) is a learning content and course management system. It offers an underlying shared content pool from which instructors across departmental and institutional boundaries can assemble granular learning content for their courses. It has strong assessment capabilities, both formative (homework and in-class using wireless PDAs) and summative (online and bubblesheet exams), with a one-source multiple-target strategy for the content. It offers students portfolio space in which they can stage materials for submission to projects, and provides a number of tools for synchronous and asynchronous student-student and student-faculty communication. LON-CAPA scales well with number of students, as load-balancing is possible across the whole network of servers at participating institutions.


Release Notes: This version uses the new redesigned interface with more consistent menu layouts and increased accessibility (the separate "accessibility" mode has been discontinued). The student portfolio function and its coupling to assignment submissions has been improved. The system now allows for completely anonymous surveys, and there are new problem modes where the randomization of the problems can be varied between submissions.

Download Website 15 Jan 16:29 GAdmin-ProFTPD 0.4.1


GAdmin-ProFTPD is a GTK+ frontend for the ProFTPD standalone server. It gives admins access to virtual hosting and eight layers of security, including chrooted users and encrypted transfers on both the data and/or control channels.

Download No website 15 Jan 16:27 MyJIT


MyJIT is a small modular library for dynamic code generation based on a simple register-based VM. The design of the VM is very similar to RISC processors and GNU lightning. The library is an ideal tool for creating more sophisticated JIT compilers.

Release Notes: This release contains a completely new and more efficient register allocator.

Download Website 15 Jan 16:26 RBridge 3.162


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 processing of registry entries and states has been improved. The registry logging has been extended. The manual has been updated accordingly.

Download Website 15 Jan 16:21 PCRE 8.12


The PCRE library is a set of functions that implement regular expression pattern matching using the same syntax and semantics as Perl 5, with just a few differences. PCRE is used by many programs, including Exim, Postfix, and PHP.

Release Notes: This release contains several bug fixes for the pcregrep program. There are no changes to the code of the PCRE library.

No download Website 15 Jan 16:19 DiffKit 0.8.10


DiffKit is an application and a framework, for comparing two tables of data, field-by-field. The tables can come from any of a number of sources, such as an RDBMS or CSV file, and DiffKit is able to mix different kinds of sources in the same diff operation. It is like the Unix diff utility, but for tables instead of lines of text. Diffs can be reported at both the row and field level, and the user can configure what to compare, how to compare it, what to ignore). DiffKit is highly customizable with respect to the sources of tabular data, the details of the comparison, and the characteristics of the output (diff report).

Release Notes: You can add your own jars to the DiffKit application (with no source needed) by copying them into the "dropin" directory. Minor data type bugs with HyperSQL were fixed.

Download Website 15 Jan 11:31 TCExam 11.1.014


TCExam is Web-based assessment software for generating and managing online tests and exams. It simplifies the exam cycle, including generation, execution, evaluation, presentation, and archiving.


Release Notes: The TCPDF library and the Arabic language were updated.

Download Website 15 Jan 07:15 ashd 0.5


Ashd is an HTTP server that follows standard Unix philosophy for modularity. Instead of being a monolithic program with loadable modules, as most other HTTP servers seem to be, Ashd is simply a collection of much simpler programs, passing HTTP requests to each other using a simple protocol. The model also allows such handler programs to persist properly, so that, for example, session data can be kept in memory, connections to back-end services can be kept open, and so on.

Release Notes: A number of bugfixes and the addition of directory-local matching to the dirplex handler.

No download Website 15 Jan 07:14 Pinot 0.97


Pinot is a D-Bus service that crawls, indexes your documents, and monitors them for changes. It is also a GTK-based user interface that enables you to query the index built by the service or your favorite Web engine, and display and analyze the results. It makes full use of advanced indexing and search facilities offered by Xapian, features language detection, dynamic document summaries, easy labelling of documents, and internal support for common file types. The D-Bus interface allows easy integration with other applications.

Release Notes: Acronyms and terms that include dots are indexed better. Crawling and memory management were improved. The default number of results shown by the UI for all queries can be changed. The plugin for DeskBar 2.30 is installed at the right location. The checking of symlinks against black-list and the display of spelling suggestions were fixed. Translations have been massively updated.
