LAME (LAME Ain't an MP3 Encoder) is a research project for learning about and improving MP3 encoding technology. LAME includes an MP3 encoding library, a simple frontend application, and other tools for sound analysis, as well as convenience tools. Please note that any commercial use (including distributing the LAME encoding engine in a free encoder) may require a patent license from Thomson Multimedia.
Release Notes: LAME can now replace common suffixes when no output filename is given. Support for WAVE format IEEE float input files was added. New options to swap channels and to select single stereo channels for mono encoding were added. Many minor bugs were fixed. Debian packaging was improved.
phpMyAdmin is a tool intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. It can create, rename, and drop databases, create/drop/alter tables, delete/edit/add fields, execute any SQL statement, manage keys on fields, create dumps of tables and databases, export/import CSV data, and administrate one single database and multiple MySQL servers.
Release Notes: This release fixes the ENUM editor to handle commas in values and keeps deleted search results from remaining visible.
eyeD3 is a Python program and module that provides the ability to read and write ID3 tags (v1.x and v2.3/v2.4). It also decodes MP3 headers (bit rate, sample frequency, play time, etc.).
Release Notes: This release supports disc number frames, adds %Y (year) and %G (genre) substitution variables for file renames, improves XML (--jep-118) escaping and a new output (--rfc822) format, makes --rename no longer clobber files, and adds the new option --itunes to write only iTunes-accepted genres. If available, the "magic" module will be used to determine mimetypes when the filename is not enough. --set-encoding can be used along with a version conversion arg to apply a new encoding to the new tag. Less crashing now occurs when invalid user text frames or invalid BPM values are encountered.
Fairmat is a derivative and capital investments modelling tool. It permits you to build a pricing model for many financial projects (or derivative contracts) using a graphical representation blended with a high level algebraic language. It is also possible to use it to evaluate projects and perform real options valuations. The platform can be extended using a plug-in system.
Release Notes: The main goal of this release is to provide a better tool from the point of view of stability, and the Fairmat team’s main focus has been to fix bugs and solve inconsistencies. Some new features have been added, including the ability to authenticate through custom proxy servers and more flexibility in working with recurrence functions.
The abcMIDI suite consists of programs for turning ABC music files into MIDI and vice versa, typesetting them as PostScript files, and manipulate them in several ways.
Release Notes: The MIDI commands "chordprog" and "bassprog" have been extended to allow for an octave offset.
abcm2ps is a commandline program which converts ABC to sheet music in PostScript or SVG format. It is an extension of abc2ps which can handle many voices per staff.
Release Notes: This release fixes bugs and adds an option in "configure" not to use pango.
Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer electronic cash system that is completely decentralized, without the need for a central server or trusted parties. Users hold the crypto keys to their own money and transact directly with each other, with the help of a P2P network to check for double-spending.
Release Notes: This release fixes the broken wallet.dat encryption implementation in 0.4.0 (read the bitcoin website for details), adds a new Qt-based graphical interface, adds the new RPC commands getmemorypool, listsinceblock, signmessage, and verifymessage, and performs faster initial block downloading.
SIREMIS is a Web management interface for Kamailio (OpenSER). It features subscriber, database aliases, and speed dial management; location table view; dispatcher, prefix-domain translation, and least cost routing management; access control lists (user groups) and permissions management; accounting records, missed calls, and call data records view; hash table, dial plan table, and user preferences table management; and offline message storage view. It is developed on top of a framework (PHP/Web2.0/AJAX), and has XML metadata-driven extensions and an MVC architecture.
Release Notes: This major release adds Web tools to handle the presence user agent and resource lists records, and enhancements to the user interface for load balancing rules.
MacroFusion fuses multiple photos into one with greater DOF (Deep of Field) or DR (Dynamic Range). It can be useful for macro lovers or landscapers.
Release Notes: This release reads exif information from photos, runs align and fusion with at least two or more images, reads filenames from the commandline (this can be used for "send to macrofusion" from filemanager), and previews images in filechooser.
Stunnix VBS-Obfus protects your VBScript code from potential analysis, study, or reworking by unwanted parties. It's both an obfuscator and encoder for the VBScript code. It converts the VBScript in raw .vbs files, or in ASP or HTML pages into a highly obfuscated form, making it extremely difficult to study, analyse, or reuse, while fully retaining functionality of the original source code. It optionally adds expiration and hostname checking. It has a lot of options to control all aspects of code hiding, and has full support for all syntax constructs. It is designed to be multi-module aware.
Release Notes: This release adds a unique String Browser tool which lists all string constants found in the code. It greatly helps when creating a list of exceptions. Directories with metadata from Git, Subversion, and Mercurial are now ignored when creating projects or browsing directories. An updated version of Portable Firefox (talking over named pipes with a Web server to avoid problems with firewalls on Windows) is now shipped with the tool in order to fix problems for some international users. The installer for Windows has been updated and now allows you to install the product to any program group.
aime is a simple, C-like programming language and an interpreter, both designed to be embeddable in applications. The language is straightforward, trivial, and direct. Its syntax is simpler than that of C, while still providing for full object management, higher order functions, and references. The interpreter is secure and expressive, allowing comprehensive control over program execution and providing powerful methods of application integration.
Release Notes: The data type description records have been extended to include more reference management methods. Temporary resources management has been extended to include application collection methods. Neither of the two extensions is backward-compatible with previous aime versions.
The goal of the Pango project is to provide an Open Source framework for the layout and rendering of internationalized text. It uses Unicode for all of its encoding, and will eventually support output in all the world's major languages.
Release Notes: Several minor bugs were fixed.
For users on Linux and Unix, KDE offers a full suite of user workspace applications which allow interaction with these operating systems in a modern, graphical user interface. This includes Plasma Desktop, KDE's innovative and powerful desktop interface. Other workspace applications are included to aid with system configuration, running programs, or interacting with hardware devices. While the fully integrated KDE Workspaces are only available on Linux and Unix, some of these features are available on other platforms. In addition to the workspace, KDE produces a number of key applications such as the Konqueror Web browser, Dolphin file manager, and Kontact, the comprehensive personal information management suite. The list of applications includes many others, including those for education, multimedia, office productivity, networking, games, and much more. Most applications are available on all platforms supported by the KDE Development. KDE also brings to the forefront many innovations for application developers. An entire infrastructure has been designed and implemented to help programmers create robust and comprehensive applications in the most efficient manner, eliminating the complexity and tediousness of creating highly functional applications.
Release Notes: Highlights of 4.8 include, but are not limited to: Qt Quick in Plasma Workspaces, Dolphin's file view rewritten for performance, scalability, and more attractive visual appearance, many performance improvements, and bugfixes to improve the overall user experience.
newLISP is a Lisp-like, general-purpose scripting language. It has all the magic of traditional Lisp, but is easier to learn and use. newLISP is friendly, fast, and small. Most of the functions you will ever need are already built in.
Release Notes: Development release 10.3.7 expands the FFI (foreign functions import) API and fixes bugs.
GNU ed is an 8-bit clean implementation of the POSIX line-oriented text editor. Ed is the "standard" text editor in the sense that it is the original editor for Unix, and thus widely available. For most purposes, however, it is superseded by full-screen editors such as GNU Emacs or GNU Moe.
Release Notes: An error which prevented using NUL characters in regular expressions has been fixed. Ed now signals an error if it can't create a shell process when executing a shell command and flushes stdout/stderr before reading a new command. The man page is now generated with "help2man". All commandline options are now documented in the man page. A portability problem on Linux SPARC has been fixed.
csvDB is an SQL engine for CSV (comma separated values) files, allowing files to be searched as if they were database tables. It includes both a library and a client, allowing it to be used programatically and from the command line.
Release Notes: This release adds support for ALTER TABLE and JOIN, adds some session configuration settings with SET <setting> <state>, optimizes CREATE and INSERT queries, and greatly improves the format of results. New column/table reference resolvers have been added to work with the new result data structures, and WHERE now supports comparisons between columns.
hcxselect is a small CSS selector engine for htmlcxx. It parses CSS selector expressions and applies them to a set of trees of HTML nodes from htmlcxx.
Release Notes: This release fixes possibly unsorted Nodes and adds interface and documentation improvements.
Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. It provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy. Individuals can use it to keep remote Websites from tracking them and their family members. They can also use it to connect to resources such as news sites or instant messaging services that are blocked by their local Internet service providers (ISPs).
Release Notes: This release fixes some crash and assert bugs, including a socketpair-related bug which has been bothering Windows users. It adds support to serve microdescriptors to controllers, so Vidalia's network map can resume listing relays (once Vidalia implements its side) and adds better support for hardware AES acceleration. Finally, it starts the process of adjusting the bandwidth cutoff for getting the "Fast" flag from 20KB to (currently) 32KB. Preliminary results show that tiny relays harm performance more than they help network capacity.
odbcpp is an ODBC C++ library wrapper. The ODBC library itself is a low level C library that has many functions, all of which could return errors. This wrapper checks for errors on every single call to the ODBC interface, so if an SQL statement, a connection, or anything else fails, an exception is generated.
Release Notes: This release fixes a problem with WCHAR (wide characters) which would not compute the size of the buffer properly. The old code would work fine under Linux, but not under Windows.
SysUsage is a system monitoring and alarm reporting tool. It can generate historical graph views of CPU, memory, IO, network and disk usage, and much more.
Release Notes: This is a new major version which allows SysUsage to be run in a central place to collect and graph statistics from multiple remote servers. Users also gain the ability to delay alarms after a number of attempts.
Darning is a tool for managing a series or sequence of patches to a software source tree, in the same vein as quilt but with extended functionality. It supports advanced patch concepts such as file mode changes and copying/renaming files. The GUI is the primary interface and the most complete, but a command line interface is also provided with fewer features at this stage.
Release Notes: This release fixes a GUI error reporting bug.
Database Deployment Manager (DDM) is a desktop oriented multi-platform database design tool that allows database administrators and programmers to create database structures (using an object oriented methodology) and deploy them into an existing database. The tool allows creation of diagrams to identify basic relations between the defined structures. You can import tables from various databases, either by fully reversing a database or just picking tables from various databases and injecting them into your solution. You can browse the databases and execute SQL queries on them. There is a unique SELECT query builder that makes the building of queries very easy without having to write a single SQL statement; just using point and click with the mouse.
Release Notes: This release adds a new Connection manager for your databases, so that you don't have to remember them, implements support for reverse engineering and/or creating views, adds a Visual Query builder for easier creation of SELECT queries for views, and allows deployment to multiple databases (connections) at the same time.
CASampledSP is a JNI-based service provider for the javax.sound.sampled.spi interfaces. As such it is capable of decoding many popular audio formats (like mp3 and aac) at native speed taking advantage of Apple's CoreAudio library. The focus is currently on decoding and converting to LPCM, not on writing or exporting.
Release Notes: A plethora of issues with stream-(not file-)based conversion was fixed along with issues with formats that require a magic cookie for decompression (e.g. Apple Lossless).
PhoNetInfo retrieves detailed phone and network information. It runs on Symbian "Belle", S^3/"Anna", and S60 5th and 3rd edition mobile phones. Information about the following topics can be retrieved: Phone manufacturer and model, firmware version, battery level, WLAN and bluetooth MAC, bluetooth device class, IMSI, IMEI, subscriber ID, charger status, running tasks, active profile settings, network mode, network signal strength and cell ID, network name and ID, network country code and registration status, CPU speed, CPU type and architecture, size of RAM and ROM, time since last reboot, and more. All information can be saved to a file.
Release Notes: A bug in the memory CID information item that caused the application to not launch under certain circumstances was fixed.
Nervepoint Access Manager is a self service password reset and account unlock virtual appliance for Active Directory.
Release Notes: This release includes bug fixes and design changes to support larger ADs. You can now send reminders to anyone who hasn’t registered from the dashboard. The Password Self Service Q&A Reminder Chart has been refined to show how many users can and cannot use the system. Fixed IP is now supported. An update service was added to notify the administrator of new updates from within the administration dashboard. A Norwegian translation was included.
