Download Website 04 Nov 23:25 Kdenlive 0.8.2


Kdenlive is a non-linear video editor for KDE. It provides all project management and editing tools while relying on a separate rendering framework (currently MLT/FFmpeg) to perform the editing operations. Kdenlive provides dual video monitors, a multi-track timeline, and clip list. Other features include customizable layout support, basic effects and transitions, multiple file formats, and full project and asset management support. Editing in Kdenlive is possible with various tools via the timeline and video monitors, allowing you to move and resize one or more clips, and razor clips into two. All timeline tools can snap to clip start/ends and the current seek position. You may playback/preview the contents of the timeline at any point during the edit. Kdenlive communicates with a render engine which handles the actual video data.

Release Notes: This release brings many bugfixes and stability improvements (more than 140 issues solved). The proxy clips (clips replacing the original ones when editing a format that is too slow to edit, such as AVCHD) should work fine now. HDMI capture should also be improved, and some GUI multi-threading should make operations a bit smoother.

No download Website 04 Nov 22:43 CloverETL Profiler 1.0 beta 1


The CloverETL Profiler, software for data profiling, works to examine data in existing data sources and collect statistical information about said data. Through this process, the profiler eliminates the guesswork in analysis, revealing an understanding of what data actually exists and what needs to be improved. Part of the CloverETL Data Integration family, the Profiler is an added tool to the enhanced toolset. Whether employed as a standalone job or part of a greater project, the CloverETL Profiler, as named, operates with the same Engine as CloverETL, offering high performance, speed, and easy deployment in a data environment.

Release Notes: This is a beta version of the first release. Community members are welcome to participate in the beta testing program to help improve functionality and usability. The beta download is available upon registering as a beta tester on the project's website.

Download No website 04 Nov 22:23 Lbzip2 2.0


Lbzip2 is a parallel, SMP-based, bzip2-compatible compression utility, with a commandline resembling that of the original bzip2. It is usable both on its own and as a filter passed to GNU tar with the "--use-compress-program" option. It uses Gnulib, and its building and testing process is managed by the GNU build system. Starting with release 2.0, lbzip2 is independent of libbz2 and features yambi, an independent BWT compression stack with improved speed and robustness.

Release Notes: In this release, lbzip2 writes a single compressed stream per bz2 file instead of multiple concatenated streams. It doesn't decompress streams embedded within trailing garbage. It detects and rejects more kinds of invalid bz2 files. Relying on the independent bzip2 stack written by the new maintainer, lbzip2-2.0 features significantly improved (de)compression speed and robustness. In verbose mode, the compression ratio and progress information is displayed for each file. Decompression failures result in more detailed messages now. Lbzip2-2.x is licensed under the GPL v3.0 or any later version.

Download No website 04 Nov 21:58 flexmock 0.9.0


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 state machine support using when(). It makes expectations fail as soon as the number of expected calls is exceeded. flexmock_teardown no longer returns a function. This release fixes should_call(), allowing it on class and static methods while disallowing on class mocks. It fixes Unicode argument handling issues. It fixes issues with @property methods misbehaving in the debugger. It fixes pytest integration and instance teardown. It fixes private method handling.

Download Website 04 Nov 21:47 Clonezilla live-testing 1.2.11-15

Release Notes: The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2011/Nov/03). Partclone was updated to 0.2.35. A bug in the option "-k1" was fixed.

No download No website 04 Nov 21:45 libQtCassandra 0.3.0


The libQtCassandra library is an advanced C++ library used to access Cassandra servers. Unlike the basic Cassadra server interface, this C++ library provides separate objects that handle each level of the server data, i.e. the cluster, contexts, table, rows, and cells. It uses Qt and the Qt style for all the classes, which makes it very easy to use if you already know Qt.


Release Notes: The garbage collection has been reduced to 1h instead of 10 days in the read/write data test. The #include has been updated to make use of the controlled variables version 1.3.0+. A dropContext() function has been added to the QCassandra object. unparent() has been added to the QCassandraContext and QCassandraTable objects. The context() function call in the table object has been removed. This was returning a bare pointer, and it cannot be changed to a shared pointer. The clearCache() function has been fixed so that it first unparents all the children.
