VisIt is an interactive parallel visualization and graphical analysis tool for viewing scientific data. Users can quickly generate visualizations from their data, animate them through time, manipulate them, and save the resulting images for presentations. VisIt contains a rich set of visualization features so that you can view your data in a variety of ways. It can be used to visualize scalar and vector fields defined on two- and three-dimensional (2D and 3D) structured and unstructured meshes. It was designed to interactively handle very large data set sizes in the terascale range, and works well down to small data sets in the kilobyte range.

Release Notes: This version contains many enhancements and bugfixes. It was upgraded to VTK 5.8.0. Windows distributions now contain a parallel compute engine based on MSMPI. Cumulative query selections were enhanced so they can cache intermediate results obtained from executing filters over time. Queries provide a more uniform interface in the Python interface. 2D multi-resolution rendering capability was added for 2D AMR data. The Streamline plot now works with AMR data. Libsim now allows mesh-sized ghost zone arrays to be used.

Download Website 18 Nov 18:46 Rasqal RDF Query Library 0.9.28


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: Full support for SPARQL 1.1 draft STRBEFORE, STRAFTER, and REPLACE has been added. A new internal Mersenne Twister PRNG has been added with the choice adjustable by configure. The language name "sparql" is now SPARQL 1.1. The query result formats now all use W3C Format URIs as their primary URI. The configure check for ceil(), floor(), and round() has been improved to prevent GCC from optimizing the test away and getting the wrong answer. Several other fixes and improvements have been made.

Download Website 18 Nov 18:42 Mathomatic 15.7.1


Mathomatic is a portable, general-purpose computer algebra system (CAS) that can solve, differentiate, simplify, combine, and compare algebraic equations, perform standard, complex number, modular, and polynomial arithmetic, etc. It does some calculus and is very easy to compile/install, learn, and use. The symbolic math application with a simple command-line interface is designed to be a colorful algebra calculator that is reliable, responsive, and convenient to use. The symbolic math library is lightweight and easy to include in other software, due to being written entirely in C with no additional dependencies.

Release Notes: Thousands separators in constants were removed, due to bugs in many standard C libraries. The tests and error/warning messages were improved. Only helpful messages are output when debugging now. An "unfactor count" command was added to expand and count the number of terms of any polynomial. Helpful coloring was added to the help command. More commands do not ignore the "repeat" prefix now; often it means to do full simplification, unless it serves a repeat function. The derivative command was fixed to stop when the derivative reaches zero. The tests now work under CygWin.

pmacct is a small set of passive network monitoring tools to account, filter, classify, aggregate, and export IPv4 and IPv6 traffic. A pluggable and flexible architecture allows storing collected network data in memory tables, RDBMSs (MySQL, SQLite, PostgreSQL, BDB), and flat files, and also export via IPFIX, NetFlow, or sFlow protocols to remote collectors. pmacct features fully customizable historical data breakdown, sampling, BGP correlation, tagging, and triggers. Libpcap, ULOG, sFlow v2/v4/v5, NetFlow v1/v5/v7/v8/v9, and IPFIX are supported data capturing methods.

Release Notes: A sampling_map feature has been introduced, allowing definition of static traffic sampling mappings. Further work on the NetFlow v9/IPFIX sampling includes support for 16 bits SAMPLER_IDs (seen against IOS-XR) and support for (FLOW)_SAMPLING_INTERVAL fields as part of the NetFlow v9/IPFIX data record. [ns]facctd_as_new and [ns]facctd_net both feature a new "fallback" option to look up BGP-related primitives against BGP first and, if not successful, against the export protocol. Other minor new features and misc. fixes are also included in this release.
