XWiki is a WikiWiki clone written in Java that supports many popular features of other Wikis like the Wiki syntax, version control, attachments, security, and searching, but also many advanced features like templates, database and dynamic development using scripting languages (Velocity, Groovy, Ruby, Python, PHP, and more), an extension system and skinability, J2EE scalability, an XML/RPC remote API, statistics, RSS feeds, PDF exporting, WYSIWYG editing, an Office viewer and importer, and a lot more.


Release Notes: There are fewer new features in this release, and most of the changes are internal. The highlights of this release are a preview version of the new class editor to be used in the Application Within Minutes designer, new Debian packages, a few extension manager improvements, LDAP improvements, and improvements in uploading and downloading attachments, especially when filesystem storage is enabled.

Download Website 01 Nov 02:14 MeTA1 1.0.Alpha7.0


MeTA1 is a modularized message transfer agent (MTA) consisting of five (or more) persistent processes, four of which are multi-threaded. A queue manager controls SMTP servers and SMTP clients to receive and send email messages, an address resolver provides lookups in various maps (including DNS) for mail routing, and a main control program starts the other processes and watches over their execution. The queue manager organizes the flow of messages through the system and provides measures to avoid overloading the local or remote systems by implementing a central control instance. It is simple to configure using a C-like syntax and is secure and efficient.

Release Notes: This version introduces some new features such as detailed timings for smtpc, and fixes a few bugs, most notably a protocol violation in reuse_connection (which is still marked as "experimental" in the documentation).

    Download Website 01 Nov 01:01 Gigalomania 0.20


    Gigalomania is a 2D real time strategy game that is a clone of Mega-Lo-Mania.

The game is still under development, but is entirely playable in its current state.

    Release Notes: The game can now run in resolutions lower than 640x512. The UI was also redesigned to be more suitable for typical PC resolutions (e.g., 640x480 rather than 640x512; 1280x960 rather than 1280x1024). The graphics scaling algorithm was improved to give better quality results.

    Download Website 01 Nov 01:01 Hiawatha 7.8

    Release Notes: With this new release, Hiawatha has the ability to cache the output of CGI applications. The application can control when and for how long its output is cached. Caching static pages generated by CGI scripts will have a considerable positive effect on the performance of your Web server. Details were added to the manual page.

    Download Website 01 Nov 00:59 Jolokia 1.0.1


    Jolokia is a fresh way of accessing JMX MBeans remotely. It is different from JSR-160 connectors, as it is an agent based approach that uses JSON over HTTP for its communication. It provides new features for JMX remoting: bulk requests allow for multiple JMX operations with a single remote server roundtrip, there is a fine-grained security mechanism for restricting JMX access on specific JMX operations, JSR-160 proxy mode, and history tracking, to name a few. Jolokia's origins are in jmx4perl. Client bindings in addition to Perl have already been added, and more are planned.

    Download Website 01 Nov 00:57 Clement


    Clement is an email server application. Its main function is to block unwanted mail (spam) as soon as possible in the email exchange process. It accepts or rejects email while the SMTP session, initiated by the email sender, is still pending, accepting legitimate email messages without the need to return an error status to non-existent or "borrowed" return address later. Clement can operate in two modes, either as a standard MTA (as sendmail, Postfix, Exim, Exchange, etc.) to store email in the recipient's own area, or to transmit the mail to an another SMTP server acting as smart spam filtering device. Each email domain name Clement knows about can be treated in one of these two modes depending on the group to which the domain name has been set. Each message is verified by a virus scanner (ClamAV) while the SMTP connection is still open, but the refusal of mail and the reason for refusal is notified to the actual sender. Mail management is done via a Web interface and can be delegated to three administrative levels (Root-Admin, Group-Admin, Domain-Admin). Standard users can access their own logs (sent email status, email rejected, quarantined email, etc.). With this interface, the user can handle the rejection and acceptance of mail. Users who are level "Admin" can access the session logs (via the Web interface). Clement uses a SQL database (PostgreSQL, MySQL) to store and manage logs, user profiles, and dynamic management of directives concerning the sender-receiver relationship.

    Release Notes: Various bugs were fixed. A sending trace is now available for each email to help the system administrator diagnose problems with delayed transmissions.

    Download No website 01 Nov 00:57 AutoDiff.NET 0.5


    AutoDiff.NET is a pure .NET library that allows a developer to easily compose functions symbolically and then automatically calculates the function's value and gradient at any given point. It can be very useful in conjunction with a gradients-based optimization library. It has been tested to work on Mono 2.10 on Linux and on .NET4 on Windows.

    Release Notes: The IntPower class has been renamed from ConstPower, breaking the API. A TermPower class was added. A division operator was added. User defined nary functions are now provided in addition to unary and binary functions. Evaluation of gradients using a subset of the variables was implemented. This is used for parameterized functions having "constant" parameters in addition to the actual function argument. Power terms can now have terms in the exponent, in addition to constants.
