Forban is a P2P file sharing application for link-local and local area networks. Forban works independently from the Internet and uses only the local area capabilities to announce, discover, search, or share files. Forban relies on HTTP and is opportunistic, meaning that it replicates any files of interest seen in its proximity. The Forban protocols are minimalistic to ease the production of other implementations.
Release Notes: The sample configuration is no longer excluding all files by default. Timeout on file handle is now properly handled. When building an index, files that changed while building the index are discarded. The bash client has a "bmonitor" functionality to automatically open a Web browser for discovered Forban.
Roundcube Webmail is a browser-based, multilingual IMAP client with an application-like user interface. It provides the full functionality you expect from an email client, including MIME support, address book, and folder manipulation. High extensibility is granted by the plugin API and the user interface is fully skinnable using XHTML and CSS 2.
Release Notes: More stability and speedup as well as some new features such as Internationalized Domain Name (IDNA) support, support for shared/global IMAP folders, and support for SMTP Delivery Status Notifications. Plus some minor changes to the message list UI and many improvements.
ABC Path Solver is a Perl program and library that automatically solves an ABC Path game while giving the reasoning. ABC Path is a puzzle game in which one should position the letters from "A" to "Y" in a 5*5 grid based on clues. It is featured in brainbashers.com. ABC Path Solver uses a mixture of deduction and solving by trying several branches, which should allow it to solve all initial boards.
Release Notes: This release encapsulates the command line solver in a module, and adds documentation (including for the input layout's format.) It specifies a missing dependency.
Gallery is a slick Web-based photo album written using PHP. It is easy to install, includes a config wizard, and provides users with the ability to create and maintain their own albums in the album collection via an intuitive Web interface.

It offers session persistence, different distribution methods (Round Robin, Random, Weighted Random, Least Session, Least Bandwidth, Hash, Agent, and Randomized Agent) and a customizable UDP health check agent in source code. It supports VRRP to set up high availability configurations on multiple nodes. It supports SNMP, integrating the BALANCENG-MIB with Net-SNMPD. It implements a very fast in-memory IP-to-location database, allowing powerful location-based server load-balancing.
Release Notes: BalanceNG V3 Debian/Ubuntu packages and Linux tarball distributions are now also available for AMD64 (x86-64) architectures.
The Linux Replicated High Availability Manager (Linuxha.net) allows the creation of clusters for application high availability through data replication. Currently, clusters are limited to two nodes, but multiple applications can be hosted and failed-over between the nodes. The software uses DRBD to provide the data replication facillity.
Release Notes: A large number of changes, fixes, and enhancements have been made. The documentation has been completely updated and revised. Network bonding is supported for more reliable networking.

Heartbeat daemon functionality was improved. SSH handling was improved.
IMDbPY is a Python package useful to retrieve and manage the data of the IMDb movie database about movies, people, characters, and companies. It can retrieve data from both the IMDb's Web server and a local copy of the whole database. The IMDbPY package can be very easily used by programmers and developers to provide access to the IMDb's data to their programs. Some simple example scripts are included in the package.
Release Notes: This is a transitional release, after the recent redesign of the IMDb pages. A new account is used and the new pages are parsed. There are surely still many bugs.
J-Ben is an aid for studying Japanese. Its primary focus is for looking up and studying kanji (the Chinese characters used in Japanese writing). It also features kanji and vocabulary study lists, cross-referencing of kanji searches with the vocabulary list, a kanji flash card drilling mode, and a Japanese-English dictionary.

The PDF files the toolkit creates are fully unprotected and can be printed or manipulated by other PDF utilities.
Release Notes: Switches also take effect when running the scripts interactively. pdf2wwf takes multiple files at the prompt. The WWF banner and WGet are optional.

It offers unlimited nested groups, unlimited POP3/IMAP profiles, quotas, an integrated address book, a calendar with multiple reminders and event repetitions, a file manager with an integrated WebDAV server, the ability to send faxes, SMS support (which lets you send SMS, get reminded of events via SMS, and get email notification via SMS), a bookmark manager, themes, and multilingual support. It uses either sendmail or SMTP to send email, and can handle MIME and SSL connections. Support for IDN (Internationalized Domain Names) is included. Through its modular design, it's easy to add completely new features as modules, which can be plugged into the system.
Release Notes: This build improves many small things. Handling of Google Mail IMAP accounts was improved in terms of system folders. The display of folder statistics for email, contacts, and bookmarks folders was improved. Mail accounts can now be converted from POP3 to IMAP and vice versa. User permissions can be set to "inherit", which indeed inherits the value from the group's setting. Handling of the HTML editor's toolbar in the mail composition window was improved. Many more things were done.

Guardian Grab eases the process of downloading the digital editions of The Guardian and The Observer newspapers, which are available through Newspaper Direct. Guardian Grab interacts with the Newspaper Direct site to log-on, identify available sections, and download the newspaper in the PDF, mobi (Kindle), or ePub formats. Downloads are arranged by paper, date, and format under a specified directory. Guardian Grab also maintains a directory holding the latest copy of each paper for easy syncing.
Release Notes: Unix tools were replaced with Perl modules. Windows support was added. eBook format downloading was added. An Apache-style configuration is now used.
GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.
Release Notes: The --joblog option makes a simple log of completed jobs. -X now spreads arguments between job slots when reaching the last argument. Use -j1 to avoid this. People on the email list have voted -j+0 to be the new default instead of -j9.
ccaudio2 is a simple, highly portable, stand-alone, C++-based framework for manipulation of audio data. Its goal is to be a C++ framework that is as useful as "audiofile" or "sndfile" is for C programming, and to cover various generic and useful manipulations of audio data as well as audio file access. A stand-alone audio processing command line tool is also provided to demonstrate library functionality. ccaudio2 compiles under Mac OS X, POSIX systems, and Win32 systems.
Release Notes: This version was integrated with GNU uCommon and can use the cmake build system. The code is usable also with purely static linkage, as all default codecs are now compiled in.
