There were audio limiter and other improvements.
Simple Continuous Integration Tools (scit) is an automated build and or test system consisting of a set of Perl and expect scripts utilizing common tools that are available for most Unix-like operating systems. The intention is to keep it lightweight while still providing a full set of features. The current version has a command-line and an HTML user interface. It should be possible to make it run on very modest hardware; part of the development and testing has been done on a Nokia N900 phone with both master and slave roles running on the same unit.
Release Notes: New slave hosts should now become visible in the HTML user interface immediately after being added. Previously a restart of generate_html was required. Problems in the demo script with committing multiple dummy changes have been fixed. Dependency triggers between a project that doesn't use version control and one that does are now supported.

Release Notes: Transaction logging and sequences over the contents of a database have been added.
Quasi extracts code fragments from text documentation and appends them to new source code files. Unlike other literate programming tools, it does not perform any sort of macro expansion. The strength of Quasi is its simplicity - it forces the programmer to think in turns of properly designed methods.
Release Notes: The name was changed from Semi to Quasi. A couple of bugs were fixed and error handling was improved.
The Objeck computer language is an object-oriented computing language with functional features that has ties with Java, C#, and Pascal. In this language, all data types are treated as objects. The language consists of a compiler and VM with an accompanying memory management and JIT compiler.
Release Notes: The C++ API was refactored. Current and upcoming releases will leverage the native API to provide database (ODBC) and GUI (GTK+) support. This interim release fixes critical bugs that were found during GTK+ integration, including a memory manager bug related to the scanning of methods with higher-order functions, a compiler bug that was assigning the same type ID to certain static and instance memory blocks, and a recently introduced compiler bug that caused the compiler to crash if certain shared library references couldn’t be resolved.
MSS Code Factory is a rule-based expert system for translating application models to source code.
Release Notes: Runnable Java 6 code is now produced. The system can now successfully instantiate and persist objects to the Ram database implementation.
getmail is intended as a simple, secure, and reliable replacement for fetchmail. It retrieves email (either all messages, or only unread messages) from one or more POP3, SPDS, or IMAP4 servers (with or without SSL) for one or more email accounts, and reliably delivers into qmail-style Maildirs, mboxrd files, or through external MDAs (command deliveries) specified on a per-account basis. getmail also has excellent support for domain (multidrop) mailboxes, including delivering messages to different users or destinations based on the envelope recipient address.
Release Notes: BrokenUIDLPOP3Retriever was fixed.
uBeeDisk is a tool that copies disks and images from one to another. It was developed to archive Microbee disk images from floppy disks and to write them back to floppy, but other disk formats can be added. It is intended mainly for users of computer emulators. As the program makes use of the 'LibDsk' library there are many options for image types. The program provides some data recovery methods along with 'info' files for each disk image file created. An 'info' file contains information about the disk image, a status map of all sectors read from the disk, and an MD5 stamp of the associated disk image.
Release Notes: This release greatly increases the reading speed from floppy disks. Spindle motor RPM monitoring was added, which may be used for calibration. A clean heads process was added. Track reads are now buffered with programmable skew settings. Key detection allows the copy process to be paused with a Pause menu which permits head cleaning and changing of the error handling mode. Many problems have been fixed, including issues with some difficult 5.25" and 8" drives, ubeedisk.ini.sample has been overhauled and includes new disk formats and many new options were added. New Gamma, Applix, and IBM3740 built-in formats have been added.
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: Accumulated minor fixes.
Exchanges is a Bash CGI script for collaborative creation of manuscripts. It allows new entries to be injected between existing entries. Owners of entries may edit or delete them. Anyone may comment on them. By default, one views the entire document. Exchanges are directory-based, with a single CGI handling multiple writing projects.
Release Notes: A traffic log that increments each time the main document, latest entry, or search page is displayed was added. The log does not distinguish between human and robot traffic. The running total is displayed in admin mode. The log is reset by manual deletion of "/cgi-bin/exhanges.tfc" over FTP.
