dupeGuru Picture Edition is a tool to find duplicate pictures on your computer. dupeGuru PE is efficient, thanks to its quick fuzzy matching algorithm. Not only can dupeGuru PE find exact matches, but it can also find duplicates among pictures of different kind (PNG, JPEG, GIF, etc.) and quality. dupeGuru PE is customizable. You can tweak its matching engine to find exactly the kind of duplicates you want to find. The Preference page of the help file lists all the scanning engine settings you can change. dupeGuru PE is safe. Its engine has been especially designed with safety in mind. Its reference directory system as well as its grouping system prevent you from deleting pictures you didn't mean to delete. dupeGuru PE supports JPG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, BMP, and PSD formats. All these formats can be compared together. Not only can you delete the duplicate pictures dupeGuru PE finds, but you can also move or copy them elsewhere. You can also easily weed the bad duplicates out, thanks to the Power Marker.
Release Notes: The UI was redesigned. dupeGuru was internationalized and localized into French. The format of the help file was changed. The "Dimensions" column is now affected by the delta mode. Folders added through drag and drop are added to the recent folders list. A debugging mode was added.
Nmap ("Network Mapper") is a utility for network exploration, administration, and security auditing. It uses IP packets in novel ways to determine which hosts are available online (host discovery), which TCP/UDP ports are open (port scanning), and what applications and services are listening on each port (version detection). It can also identify remote host OS and device types via TCP/IP fingerprinting. Nmap offers flexible target and port specifications, decoy/stealth scanning for firewall and IDS evasion, and highly optimized timing algorithms for fast scanning.
Release Notes: Nping packet probing and analysis tool has been added. Nmap Scripting Engine has been enhanced, and many new NSE scripts and libraries have been added (the new totals are 177 and 54, respectively). Many OS fingerprints and version detection signatures have been added, bringing the totals to 2,982 and 7,319, respectively. Zenmap GUI has been made faster when handling giant enterprise networks, and some new features have been added to it (script selection interface, printing support, and more).
Flexmock is a mock/stub/spy library for Python. Its API is inspired by a Ruby library of the same name. However, it is not a goal of Python Flexmock to be a clone of the Ruby version. Instead, the focus is on providing full support for testing Python programs and making the creation of fake objects as unobtrusive as possible. Flexmock’s design focuses on simplicity and intuitiveness. This means that the API is as lean as possible, though a few convenient short-hand methods are provided to aid brevity and readability. Flexmock declarations are structured to read more like English sentences than API calls, and it is possible to chain them together in any order to achieve high degree of expressiveness in a single line of code.
Release Notes: This release added better error handling for trying to mock builtins, a simple test harness for running on multiple versions, and test runners. Unicode arg formatting was fixed. It is now impossible to mock non-existent methods. flexmock teardown can now take varargs (for better runner integration).
Bitflu is a BitTorrent client designed to run non-stop as a daemon. It does not provide a graphical interface, but offers a telnet interface and can handle multiple torrent downloads.
Release Notes: The Web interface has been rewritten from scratch and is now based on YUI2 (Yahoo!'s User Interface library). This release also adds support for 'dht://' URIs and fixes a few minor bugs.
MSR Tools is a source code evolution analysis tool. It consists of a framework for mining software repositories and tools for metric calculation, visualization, and defect prediction.

YAGF is a graphical frontend for the cuneiform and tesseract OCR tools. It lets you open already scanned image files or obtain new images via XSane (scanning results are automatically passed to YAGF). Once you have a scanned image you can prepare it for recognition, select particular image areas for recognition, set the recognition language and so on. Recognized text is displayed in an editor window where it can be spell-checked, corrected, saved to disk, or copied to clipboard. YAGF also provides some facilities for a multi-page recognition.
Release Notes: Many small bugs were fixed. The base image and selected blocks can now be saved to the graphic files.
gquilt is a PyGTK GUI wrapper for quilt and mq. quilt and the mq extension to Mercurial (hg) are tools for managing a series of patches by keeping track of the changes each patch makes. Patches can be applied, unapplied, refreshed, etc.

Netomata Config Generator (NCG) creates complete, ready-to-install configuration files for network devices and services from a common lightweight model of a network. Because these configuration files are generated programmatically and generated from a shared model, they are more likely to be consistent and complete, making a network more reliable, easier to troubleshoot, and easier to expand in both size and functionality. The inputs to NCG are a model describing the network and templates for the configuration files of the various devices (routers, switches, load balancers, firewalls, etc.) and services (SNMP, DNS, DHCP, etc.). From these inputs, NCG produces complete, consistent, ready-to-install configuration files for those devices and services.
Release Notes: The Ruby Hashery library is now used instead of the Facets library, because the "Dictionary" class (which NCG depends upon) was removed from Facets 2.9.0 because the Hashery library is now the preferred source of the Dictionary class.
dhex is a more than just another hex editor: It includes a diff mode, which can be used to easily and conveniently compare two binary files. Since it is based on ncurses and is themeable, it can run on any number of systems and scenarios. With its utilization of search logs, it is possible to track changes in different iterations of files easily.
Release Notes: Searching is now possible from the command line. This release comes with man pages for the program as well as the file formats used.

Release Notes: The code was updated to support the redesign of the Slashdot Web site.
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 annoying path lookup for the loot has been fixed.
Release Notes: Portability was improved. Some potential security flaws were fixed. Force download was added.
