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: A problem where a database containing views could not be renamed was fixed. The suggested name for a new database was not correct for users having underscores in their name, and this was fixed.
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: Unix.pipe_command now records stdout and stderr, bringing up stderr if it exists, otherwise stdout. The (+) goto mechanism was restored for cscope use. The function window_ro() was for all those places windows are put in VIEW mode.

The Open-Transactions project is a collaborative effort to develop a robust, commercial-grade, fully-featured, free-software toolkit implementing a full-strength financial cryptography library, API, CLI, and prototype server. Open-Transactions democratizes financial and monetary actions. You can use it for issuing currencies/stock, paying dividends, creating asset accounts, sending/receiving digital cash, writing/depositing cheques, cashier's cheques, creating basket currencies, trading on markets, scripting custom agreements, recurring payments, escrow, etc. Strong crypto is used. Balances are unchangeable (even by a malicious server). Receipts are destructible and redundant. The transactions are unforgeable. The cash is untraceable. The cheques are non-repudiable.
Release Notes: Smart contracts: users can now design and activate their own financial instruments, using scripted clauses, callbacks, and hooks. OT can now be configured (or not) to require USAGE CREDITS, making it possible for server operators to earn transaction fees. (Privileged API functions were added for viewing and setting these usage credits.) Client side scripting (see the Open-Transactions/scripts folder): the entire OT API is now available for use inside the client- side scripts. Just put this at the top of any new OTscript files: #!/usr/local/bin/ot --script

It simplifies the task of writing software that deals with FITS files by providing an easy to use set of high-level routines that insulate the programmer from the internal complexities of the FITS file format.
Release Notes: This release restores support for tile compression of 1-byte integer images. It modifies the command line parsing routine to perform more rigorous checks to determine if the token can be interpreted as a number or not. It adds support for reading and writing large FITS files (> 2.1 GB) when building CFITSIO using Microsoft Visual C++ on Windows platforms. There are numerous bugfixes.
ANTLR (ANother Tool for Language Recognition) is a language tool that provides a framework for constructing recognizers, compilers, and translators from grammatical descriptions containing C++, Java, or Sather actions. It is similar to the popular compiler generator YACC, however ANTLR is much more powerful and easy to use. ANTLR-produced parsers are not only highly efficient, but are both human-readable and human-debuggable (especially with the interactive ParseView debugging tool). ANTLR can generate parsers, lexers, and tree-parsers in either C++, Java, or Sather. ANTLR is currently written in Java.
Release Notes: Numerous Java and C++ bugfixes. Documentation updates.

Release Notes: This release removes an extra line break after the article title, making the look of the title and time-stamp more controllable by the user.
fwknop implements an authorization scheme called Single Packet Authorization that requires only a single encrypted packet to communicate various pieces of information, including desired access through an iptables, ipfw, or pf firewall policy and/or specific commands to execute on the target system. The main application of this program is to protect services such as SSH with an additional layer of security in order to make the exploitation of vulnerabilities much more difficult. The authorization server works by passively monitoring authorization packets via libpcap. Also supported is a robust port knocking implementation based around iptables log messages.
Release Notes: This release adds OpenBSD PF support, adds a new FORCE_NAT mode to transparently force authenticated connections to specified internal systems, adds a comprehensive test suite, and adds the ability to automatically expire SPA keys. Several memory handling bugfixes were made.
FreedroidRPG is an isometric RPG game inspired by Diablo and Fallout. There is a war, and we are losing it. No one really knows why the bots started killing us. Most don't even want to know.

It provides a simple C language application programming interface (API) to access the secure communications protocols, as well as APIs to parse and write X.509, PKCS #12, OpenPGP, and other required structures. It is intended to be portable and efficient with a focus on security and interoperability.
Release Notes: This is an update to the current stable branch with several optimizations, including faster Diffie-Hellman and elliptic curve Diffie-Hellman key exchange.
MUSCLE (Multi User Server Client Linking Environment) is an N-way messaging server and networking API. It includes client-side networking APIs for various languages, including C, C++, C#, Delphi, Java, and Python. MUSCLE lets programs communicate over a network via streams of serialized Message objects. The included server program ("muscled") lets its clients message each other and store information in its server-side hierarchical database. The database supports flexible queries via hierarchical wildcarding, and "live" updates via a subscription mechanism.
Release Notes: This release adds a SocketMultiplexer class which hides the details of select() and poll() behind a simpler and more consistent API. It also fixes a bug in Message::FindFlat() which could cause it to return incorrect results when called on locally-created Messages containing FlatCountableRef-referenced objects.
