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: The function bind.get_binding was renamed exist_binding, and a new get_binding was created to factor scanning of the binding table out of four different functions. Bind.new_binding was factored out of bind_to_key and macro_to_key. Two keys were remapped: end-of-word to M-E and unmark-buffer to M-R. Cmode.fmatch was removed as it had never been implemented in the Linux port.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug introduced in the previous release during inflating/deflating compressed HTTP content. It also adds more debug messages to trace link substitutions in refresh header, HTTP content, and in the inflate/deflate calls.
rxvt-unicode is a clone of the well known terminal emulator rxvt, modified to store text in Unicode and to use locale-correct input and output. It also supports mixing multiple fonts at the same time, including Xft fonts, real transparency, and an optional embedded Perl interpreter that allows you to extend your terminal easily.
Release Notes: This release overhauls the bg image operations to be more flexible and deprecates libAfterImage support. Perl extensions are now searched for by default in ~/.urxvt/ext. There are various bugfixes of varying importance.
When is an extremely simple personal calendar program, aimed at the Unix geek who wants something minimalistic. It can keep track of things you need to do on particular dates. It's a very short and simple program, so you can easily tinker with it yourself. It doesn't depend on any libraries, so it's easy to install. You should be able to install it on any system where Perl is available, even if you don't have privileges for installing libraries. Its file format is a simple text file, which you can edit in your favorite editor.
Release Notes: This release adds a mechanism to allow splitting the user's calendar entries up into multiple files if desired.
Hypertable is a high performance, scalable database modeled after Google's Bigtable. It is designed to manage the storage and processing of information on a large cluster of commodity servers, providing resilience to machine and component failures.

ProGuard is a shrinker, optimizer, obfuscator, and preverifier for Java bytecode. It detects and removes unused classes, fields, methods, and attributes. It optimizes methods and removes dead code. It renames the remaining classes, fields, and methods using short, meaningless names. Finally, it preverifies the processed code for Java 6 or higher, or for Java Micro Edition. The resulting code is more compact, more efficient, and more difficult to reverse-engineer. Advantages of ProGuard compared to other Java shrinkers and obfuscators are compact template-based configuration, memory efficiency, and speed. It is mostly popular for embedded development and for commercial development, and is integrated in Oracle's Wireless Toolkit, in Intel's TXE SDK, and in Google's Android SDK.
Release Notes: This release adds support for processing Java 7 code. It shrinks class files slightly better. It fixes a number of issues in the optimization and obfuscation steps and in the GUI. For Android developers, it works around a problem with spaces in path names in the Android SDK.
Efax-gtk provides a GUI frontend for the efax fax program. It interfaces with efax directly, replacing the scripts supplied with efax, and can be used for receiving and sending faxes, and for viewing, printing, and managing faxes which have been received and sent. It also has a socket interface that provides a "virtual printer" for sending faxes from word processors and similar programs, and can automatically e-mail a received fax to a designated user and automatically print a received fax.
Release Notes: There is now a hard dependency on the c++-gtk-utils library. The build system has been revised. Some minor bugs have been fixed.
QuakeForge is a 3D graphics game engine based on id Software's legendary Quake® and QuakeWorld® game engines.
Release Notes: The only update is to add more supported keys for X11 clients.
XorCurses is a game based entirely on Xor by Astral Software. The original game was released around 1987 for the 8-bit home computers popular at the time. XorCurses attempts to faithfully recreate that game for Linux, but slightly ironically, uses ASCII characters instead of pixel based graphics (which even the 8-bit computers could manage). The idea of Xor is to roam around a series of mazes collecting masks. The first level is simply a matter of finding your way around, but the second level introduces fish and chickens which block your path or kill you if they hit you. From there on in, things get progressively tougher and really is a challenging and difficult puzzle game.
Release Notes: This release fixes two bugs caused by a minor difference in the way the player positions are stored. These bugs manifested in the teleport, and the game window display. Additionally, serious bugs with the game view after terminal resizing have been fixed.
The X Binary Package System (in short XBPS) is a binary package system designed and implemented from scratch. Its goal is to be fast, easy to use, bug-free, featureful, and portable as much as possible. There is a well documented API provided by the XBPS Library that is the basis for its frontends, to handle binary packages and repositories.
Release Notes: A new configuration file format, faster unpacking, new checks for package integrity, multiple performance improvements, new options for xbps-bin(8) and xbps-repo(8), a cleaned up API in preparation to start the packagekit backend, and more.
Oracle VM VirtualBox, formerly Sun xVM VirtualBox and innotek VirtualBox, is a family of x86 virtualization products for enterprise and home use.
