Download Website 27 Nov 22:34 Cdarts 0.1


Cdarts is a low level implementation of a computer darts player. It can be used as an opponent against a human in the game, or it can be used as a simulator for fun. It currently supports only two different game types (301 and 501), but can be extended to support more games. It supports three different levels: beginner, hobbyist, and professional. Each level tries to simulate a human at that level as well as possible.

Release Notes: Initial release and reference implementation of the Computer darts protocol.

No download Website 27 Nov 22:28 tcpdump 4.2.0


tcpdump prints a description of the contents of packets on a network interface which match a given boolean expression. It can also be run with the -w flag, which causes it to save the packet data to a file for later analysis, and/or with the -r flag, which causes it to read from a saved packet file rather than to read packets from a network interface. In all cases, only packets which match the expression will be processed by tcpdump. tcpdump logs more than just TCP, IP, or ethernet packets, but has a whole suite of decoders, including ones for USB.

Release Notes: This release has merged 802.15.4 decoder. It has updates to forces for new port numbers. It uses "-H", not "-h", for the 802.11s option (-h is always help). Better ICMPv6 checksum handling. Support for the RPKI/Router Protocol, per -ietf-sidr-rpki-rtr-12. Removal of uuencoded pcap test files; git can do binary. sFlow changes for 64-bit counters. Fixes for PPI packet header handling and printing. DCB Exchange protocol (DCBX) version 1.01.

Download Website 27 Nov 22:25 rho 1.0.28


Rho is a small, very powerful console-based POSIX text editor and mini-IDE with Bash/Emacs key bindings. A configuration file allows the user to create macros using not only any internal function but anything available to a shell command. Keyboard macros (Ctl-Alt-A through Z) can be sourced into the editor for each kind of task, the next sourcing overwriting the last. Rho also allows an unlimited number of templates (sh, awk, python, etc.) to be injected into executable buffers which trap stdout and stderr.


Release Notes: The second refactoring pass is complete. All .c files have normal interfaces in their .h files. Non-public functions are now static. The envars have been reduced to those that are most useful and are all documented in rho's online help. The annoying more-simulation of a pop-up window is gone. Saving a file from the default "main" buffer now correctly changes the buffer name to match the file. The functions search-regex and search-again have replaced search-forward and hunt-forward, which were redundant.

Download Website 27 Nov 22:24 pfcalc 1.0


pfcalc is a portable command line tool used to calculate pipe friction and pressure drop through pipes using the Darcy-Weisbach equation.

Release Notes: This release changes printing code so every result line fits into 80 characters. It changes verbose mode printing layout. It adds printing of liquid properties in verbose mode. It adds printing of total pressure loss in verbose mode. It replaces #define statements with const declarations.

No download Website 27 Nov 22:22 S3QL 1.7


S3QL is a file system that stores all its data online. It supports Amazon S3, Google Storage, and OpenStack and effectively provides you with a hard disk of dynamic, infinite capacity that can be accessed from any computer with Internet access. S3QL provides a standard, full featured Unix file system that is conceptually indistinguishable from any local file system. Additional features include compression, encryption, data de-duplication, immutable trees, and snapshotting, which make it especially suitable for online backup and archiving. The design favors simplicity and elegance over performance and feature-creep. Care has been taken to make the source code as readable and serviceable as possible. Solid error detection, error handling, and extensive automated test cases are provided.

Release Notes: Metadata is now stored in a custom, delta-encoded binary format, and inodes are assigned sequentially and not reused. This makes S3QL fully NFS-compatible. s3qlcp now also copies extended attributes and no longer generates incorrect block reference counts when copying a file which has identical blocks. This release eliminates a race condition in s3qlcp. When copying a file with s3qlcp immediately after it was modified or created, it was possible that s3qlcp would copy the new file attributes but the old data blocks.

Download Website 27 Nov 22:22 kwave 0.8.7


Kwave is a 24-bit sound editor that allows simple operations, such as cut, copy, and paste. Some more effect functions with little complexity (Simple Filtering, Delay) are also implemented. More sophisticated analysis functions (spectrograms, sonagrams, pitch determination) are underway or partially done.

Release Notes: This is not only a bugfix release, but also contains new metadata handling and some support for future visualization plugins. The "audiofile" library, which is used for import/export of many audio file formats, has changed its API a bit, which needs to be reflected in Kwave too. Please be aware that Kwave now needs libaudiofile 0.3.1 or newer.

Download Website 27 Nov 22:21 LibUtillery 1.7.0


LibUtillery is a free, BSD-licensed programmer's toolbox; a lightweight and thoroughly documented collection of sub-libraries that solve generic and often repetitive tasks. It also helps with writing portable software by providing a single API to many non-standard extensions that are not natively supported on all operating systems. It ships functions for memory management and debugging, logging, thread synchronization, and debugging, configuration file parsing, hash table, tree and list data structures, standard integer types, and more.

Release Notes: For Web services, secure password storage is one of the most important protections of its users after a successful break-in, with mature frameworks allowing you to do it properly. The new UPWCrypt component in this release fills this niche for portable stand-alone network daemons, written in C, that need to authenticate users. It is specialized to using an implementation of the OpenBSD bcrypt algorithm (type $2a$ hashes), which means UPWCrypt is able to provide a very simple API. Also, this release contains a few maintenance fixes in the build system and documentation.

Download Website 27 Nov 22:20 libagf 0.9.4


libagf is a library of variable-bandwidth kernel estimators for statistical classification, PDF estimation, and interpolation/non-linear regression using both Gaussian kernels and k-nearest-neighbours. Statistical classification allows the use of a pre-trained model for considerable speed gains. Also included are clustering algorithms. It includes command line executables as well as easy-to-use libraries.


Release Notes: Everything except the I/O routines has been templated. With the exception of those used in external routines, variable types in the main routines are now controlled with global typedefs, with each class of variable having a different type. Different metrics are now only supported in the routines where they make sense: KNN classification and KNN interpolation. The functions now require a pointer to the desired metric. The nfold routine now supports interpolation. Note that this is still not well tested (if at all).

No download Website 27 Nov 22:19 Burp 1.2.5


Burp is a program that backs up and restores data. It uses librsync in order to save on the amount of space that is used by each backup. It also uses VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to make snapshots when backing up Windows computers.

Release Notes: This release fixes a critical path comparison typo bug. If you have been using 1.2.4 either as a server or as a client, you need to upgrade immediately. Backups made with 1.2.4 should be treated as suspicious. A 'max_file_size' option has been added. This release will store Windows file attributes in a separate field from the standard Unix ones.

Download Website 27 Nov 22:19 vifm 0.7.1


Vifm is an ncurses-based file manager with vi-like keybindings, which also borrows some useful ideas from mutt.

Release Notes: This release changes the meaning of the :split command (so replace it with :vsplit in your vifmrc), adds backgrounding of the :copy, :move, :delete, ga, and gA commands, adds horizontal splitting and keys to control the size of the panes, adds a less-like view mode, makes some changes to the Vim plugin, and makes the Windows version much more usable.

Download Website 27 Nov 22:09 DBeaver 1.4.5


DBeaver is a universal database manager and SQL Client. It supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, DB2, MSSQL, Sybase, Mimer, HSQLDB, SQLite, Derby, and any database that has a JDBC driver. It is a GUI program that allows you to view the structure of a database, execute SQL queries and scripts, browse and export table data, handle BLOB/CLOB values, modify database meta objects, etc. It has a native UI (provided by the Eclipse SWT library), great performance, and relatively low memory consumption.


Release Notes: This release adds MySQL and Oracle native clients support, MySQL full database exporting/importing, a resultset filters UI update, driver management improvements, a multilingual installer, and general UI and code fixes.

Download Website 27 Nov 22:08 msmtp 1.4.26


msmtp is an SMTP client with a sendmail compatible interface. It can be used with Mutt and other MUAs. It forwards messages to an SMTP server which does the delivery.

No download No website 27 Nov 22:04 jOOQ 2.0.0


jOOQ effectively combines complex SQL, type safety, source code generation, active records, stored procedures, advanced data types, and Java in a fluent, intuitive DSL.

Release Notes: This release is a fresh start in many areas of jOOQ, addressing issues which have been requested by users for a long time.

No download Website 27 Nov 22:04 Task Coach 1.3.1


Task Coach is a simple todo manager to manage personal tasks and todo lists. It grew out of a frustration that well-known task managers, such as those provided with Outlook or Lotus Notes, do not provide facilities for composite tasks. Often, tasks and other things to do consist of several activities. Task Coach is designed to deal with composite tasks.

Release Notes: This is a bugfix release.

Download Website 27 Nov 22:03 sysstat 10.0.3


The sysstat package contains the sar, sadf, iostat, nfsiostat, cifsiostat, mpstat, and pidstat commands for Linux. The sar command collects and reports system activity information. The statistics reported by sar concern I/O transfer rates, paging activity, process-related activites, interrupts, network activity, memory and swap space utilization, CPU utilization, kernel activities, and TTY statistics, among others. The sadf command may be used to display data collected by sar in various formats. The iostat command reports CPU statistics and I/O statistics for tty devices and disks. The pidstat command reports statistics for Linux processes. The mpstat command reports global and per-processor statistics. The nfsiostat command reports I/O statistics for network filesystems. The cifsiostat command reports I/O statistics for CIFS filesystems.

Release Notes: A new output format has been added to sadf: JSON (JavaScript Object Notation). Several bugs have been fixed in sadf XML output, DTD, and XSD documents. A random crash with iostat -N has been fixed.

Download No website 27 Nov 22:03 flexmock 0.9.1


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 adds support for a number of popular test runners, including unittest2, django/trial, twisted, zope.testrunner, subunit, and testtools.

No download Website 27 Nov 22:02 libpqxx 4.0


libpqxx is the C++ front-end or driver (in the sense of "language binding") for PostgreSQL. It can help you write a program that uses PostgreSQL as a database on just about any platform.

Release Notes: The theme for 4.0 is simplicity, but there have been many other improvements as well. At last, there's a viable Visual C++ build.

No download Website 27 Nov 22:01 Pomm rc1


Pomm is an object oriented database access framework. It is not an ORM, it is an Object Model Manager. It offers an alternative approach from an ORM to using databases in Web development. It allows developers to leverage PostgreSQL's features to shape data structures which fit business processes while keeping an eye on performance.

Release Notes: This release implements the identity map design pattern. This was the missing feature before it could go stable.

Download Website 27 Nov 21:59 The Legend of Edgar 0.94


The Legend of Edgar is a 2D platform game with a persistent world. When Edgar's father fails to return home after venturing out one dark and stormy night, Edgar fears the worst: he has been captured by the evil sorcerer who lives in a fortress beyond the forbidden swamp. In The Legend of Edgar, you take on the role of Edgar as he ventures across the world, battling fearsome creatures and solving puzzles while trying to find and rescue his father.

Release Notes: Ice cubes now longer move too quickly when thrown. Jacob no longer drops infinite swords when you talk to him. The rift summoned by Mataeus no longer plays its sound effect endlessly. This release fixes a problem with The Sewer Dweller's attacks becoming unblockable. Ice cubes now vanish after a few seconds. Dark Summoners no longer get stuck after casting lightning.

No download Website 27 Nov 21:57 sslh 1.10


sslh accepts connections in HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, OpenVPN, tinc, XMPP, or any other protocol that can be tested using a regular expression, on the same port. This makes it possible to connect to any of these servers on port 443 (e.g. from inside corporate firewalls, which almost never block port 443) while still serving HTTPS on that port. sslh supports IPv6, privilege dropping, transparent proxying, and much more.

Release Notes: This release now works with FreeBSD and supports XMPP. It will try target addresses in turn until one works if there are several (e.g., "localhost:22" resolves to an IPv6 address and an IPv4 address and sshd does not listen on IPv6). sslh-fork has been fixed so that killing the head process kills the listener processes. This release introduces a better test suite.

Download Website 27 Nov 21:55 GPhotoFrame 1.4.1


GPhotoFrame is a photo frame gadget. It shows pictures on the desktop from multiple sources: local folders, F-Spot databases, Shotwell databases, Facebook API, Flickr API, Picasa Web Album API, Tumblr API, and RSS.

Release Notes: This release adds a workaround for an Xfwm gravity problem and adds a new French translation.
