Download No website 30 Dec 21:33 XorCurses 0.2.2


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 a bug/regression where fish and/or chickens failed to move after a player entered a teleport, i.e. level 14.

Download No website 30 Dec 21:29 uWSGI 1.0

Release Notes: This release includes support for adaptive process spawning, a statistics framework, and the implementation of mules and farms for offloading tasks. Support for CGI and PHP script has been added.

Download Website 30 Dec 21:28 TorTV 0.2


TorTV is a build of the Tor Project maintained to run on TV devices and set-top boxes so that anyone with such a household appliance can contribute to strengthen the Tor network. TorTV does not reimplement nor modify the Tor source code in any way; it provides binary builds for embedded targets and scripted bundles to facilitate their installation. So far, it targets WDTV devices running WDLXTV, but aims to grow to support more hardware in future.

Release Notes: This release updates to Tor (security fixes) and adds initial support for daemon-only webend integration for WDLXTV.

Download Website 30 Dec 21:27 Equalizer 1.2-beta


Equalizer is middleware for creating and deploying parallel OpenGL-based applications. It enables applications to benefit from multiple graphics cards, processors, and computers to scale rendering performance, visual quality, and display size. An Equalizer-based application runs unmodified on any visualization system, from a simple workstation to large scale graphics clusters, multi-GPU workstations, and Virtual Reality installations.

Release Notes: Automatic local and remote configuration using the GPU-SD library, initial release of Sequel, a simplification and utility layer on top of Equalizer, runtime failure tolerance detecting hardware and software failures, tile compounds for fill-limited rendering such as direct volume rendering and interactive raytracing, distributed single-producer, multi-consumer queue, an RDMA-based connection class for InfiniBand (Linux only), and support for push-based object distribution.

Download Website 30 Dec 21:26 uClibc


uClibc (µClibc) is a C library for developing embedded Linux systems. It is much smaller then the GNU C Library, but nearly all applications supported by glibc also work perfectly with uClibc. Porting applications from glibc to uClibc typically involves just recompiling the source code. uClibc even supports shared libraries and threading. It currently runs on standard Linux and MMU-less Linux (also known as µClinux) systems with support for ARM, i386, h8300, m68k, MIPS, mipsel, PowerPC, SH, SPARC, and v850 processors.

Release Notes: Bugfixes and feature enhancements.

No download Website 30 Dec 21:23 DeVeDe 3.21.0


DeVeDe is a program to create video DVDs (compatible with home players) from nearly any video format. It only uses Python, MPlayer, Mencoder, DVDAuthor, VCDImager, and mkisofs, so it has very few dependencies.

Release Notes: This release fixes a bug when creating a DVD with more than one page in its menu. Now FFMpeg is the default backend.

No download Website 30 Dec 21:15 Aspose.Diagram for .NET 1.8.0


Aspose.Diagram is a class library for working with MS Visio files. It is a pure .NET alternative for MS Visio Object Model. It enables developers to work with VSD and VDX files on ASP.NET Web applications, Web services, and desktop applications. It makes use of the advanced functionality of Visio's services to manipulate Visio documents on a server. A developer can open files and manipulate the elements of the diagram, from lines and fills to more complex elements, and then export to native Visio formats or XML.

Release Notes: This release includes support for an auto layout feature. You can set different styles of Flowchart and CompactTree layouts in your diagrams. Users can set the page size when rendering to TIFF format. Image and PDF rendering features have also been improved in this release. Moreover, rendering of element PolyLineTo and enhanced VSD file Rendering is also included in this release.

Download Website 30 Dec 21:13 RemoteBox 1.2


RemoteBox is a graphical tool which lets you administer guests or virtual machines running under VirtualBox on a remote server or even your local machine if desired. You may, for example, have a root server on the Internet, a server at home, or a server at work running VirtualBox but want to have the convenience of managing the guests easily from your local machine. The virtual machines run in headless mode, which means you don't need an active graphical display on the server but you can still connect and view the displays of the guests. The goal of RemoteBox is to provide a GUI that should be familiar to VirtualBox users while allowing them to administer a remote installation of VirtualBox. It does this via the VirtualBox API and SOAP interface, which are exposed when running the VirtualBox Web service. You can also use RemoteBox simply as an alternative interface for managing VirtualBox on your local machine.

Release Notes: This release has been rebased from GTK 2.16 to GTK 2.22 as the minimum version required, and has significant code optimizations. Support has been added for creating guest clones (Full, State, and Linked) and marking hard disk images as SSDs and DVD images as Live DVDs. The number of ports on a SATA controller can now be configured manually as well as manually controlling the port a medium is attached to. Support has been added for copying (including converting) hard disk images as well as setting their low-level type (Writethrough, Immutable, Multi-attach, etc.). Plus the usual plethora of GUI tweaks and minor bugfixes.

Download Website 30 Dec 21:05 Edt Text Editor 1.9


Edt is a simple text editor that emulates VAX VMS EDT. It uses the numeric keypad for common editing functions. It is easy to learn, efficient, and enables rapid editing. The editor has multiple buffers, handles large files, and is light-weight.

Release Notes: This release adds a check against accidentally attempting to edit a directory. It adds the ability to start an HTML file by inserting the HTML tags for header and page-body when you type "begin html" at the line-prompt. A Makefile and Sun keyboard map were also added.

The package 'page::page_markup' was refactored. The package 'gui::video_markup' was refactored. The package 'core' was refactored. An error in the 'permit::group_markup' was fixed. An error in the 'user::user_markup' was fixed. An error in the 'page::page_markup' was fixed. The documentation was updated.

Download No website 30 Dec 21:02 Loadbars 0.3.1


Loadbars is a small script that can be used to observe CPU loads of several remote servers at once in real time. It connects with SSH (using SSH public/private key auth) to several servers at once and vizualizes all server CPUs and memory statistics right next each other (either summarized or each core separately). Loadbars is not a tool for collecting CPU loads and drawing graphs for later analysis. However, since such tools require a significant amount of time before producing results, Loadbars lets you observe the current state immediately. Loadbars does not remember or record any load information. It just shows the current CPU usages like top or vmstat does.

Release Notes: The --cluster option (which reads the ClusterSSH config file /etc/clusters/) now also supports clusters of clusters. The --hosts option allows the username to be specified, e.g. "./loadbars --hosts user1@server01,user2@server02" will connect to server01 using user1 and server02 with user2.
