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.

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.

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.

Download Website 27 Nov 21:54 libferris 1.5.9


libferris is a virtual filesystem that exposes hierarchical data of all kinds through a common C++ interface. Access to data is performed using C++ IOStreams and metadata is available as key-value pairs through the Extended Attributes (EA) interface. Rich support for filesystem indexing is included to provide timely search results for well into millions of files. Ferris uses a plugin API to handle a large range of data sources, metadata, and index and search strategies. Filesystems include file:// with monitoring, XML (mount an XML file as a filesystem), relational databases, ISAM databases (Berkeley db, tdb, gdbm, eet et al), xmldb, LDAP, Applications (Evolution, Firefox, Emacs), HTTP, FTP, sockets, and RDF (from XML, binary, soprano). EA generators include image, audio, and animation decoders.

Release Notes: This release adds initial support for mounting mediawiki, moves to using boost::spirit for parsing instead of PCCTS, and adds a new DOM XPath selector function.

Download Website 27 Nov 21:52 SvxLink 11.11.1


SvxLink is a flexible general purpose voice services system for ham radio use. It can act as a repeater controller or operate on a simplex channel. The server consists of a core that handles the connection to the transceiver. The transceiver audio is connected to the PC through the sound card, and the PTT is controlled by a pin in the serial port. The voice services are loaded into the core as modules. Examples of existing voice services are a help system, a module that plays back everything you say, a module to connect to other EchoLink stations, and a voice mail module. The project also includes an EchoLink client GUI application (Qtel).

Release Notes: This is a bugfix release for the 11.11 version released earlier. Two serious bugs have been fixed, one which caused RemoteTrx to crash on disconnections and another which could cause a transmitter to hang in certain setups.

Download Website 26 Nov 22:40 stunnel 4.48


The stunnel program is designed to work as an SSL encryption wrapper between remote client and local (inetd-startable) or remote server. It can be used to add SSL functionality to commonly used inetd daemons like POP2, POP3, and IMAP servers without any changes in the programs' code. It will negotiate an SSL connection using the OpenSSL or SSLeay libraries. It calls the underlying crypto libraries, so stunnel supports whatever cryptographic algorithms you compiled into your crypto package.
