This release will not install anything, overwrite, or even access the internal hard drive. It is completely housebroken, and safe for testing and use.
Ashd is an HTTP server that follows standard Unix philosophy for modularity. Instead of being a monolithic program with loadable modules, as most other HTTP servers seem to be, Ashd is simply a collection of much simpler programs, passing HTTP requests to each other using a simple protocol. The model also allows such handler programs to persist properly, so that, for example, session data can be kept in memory, connections to back-end services can be kept open, and so on.
Release Notes: Support for epoll was added to make htparser more scalable. The error handling in dirplex has been made customizable and reusable. There is a general slew of bugfixes and other improvements to go around.
JStock is stock market software for 26 countries. It provides a stock watchlist, an intraday stock price snapshot, a stock indicator editor, a stock indicator scanner, and portfolio management. Free SMS/email alerts are supported. It integrates seamlessly with Android.
Release Notes: 1 critical bug has been fixed. There is a change in the stock server policy. The stock server may return an empty stock symbol for certain stocks, especially for the United States stock market. This release will ignore those empty stock symbols and replace them with its own offline stock databases.
PAC provides a GUI to configure SSH and Telnet connections, including usernames, passwords, EXPECT regular expressions, and macros. It is similar in function to SecureCRT or Putty. It is intended for people who connect to many servers through SSH. It can automate logins and command executions.

Bandwidth is primarily a memory bandwidth benchmark, but it can also measure network bandwidth. It measures the maximum memory bandwidth of each part of the memory system, including main memory, L1, L2, and L3 caches, framebuffer memory, and register-to-register. For many tests, it performs both sequential memory accesses as well as random memory accesses to provide a more real-world performance estimate. The tests support Linux (Intel), Windows/Cygwin, and Mac OS X. Its core routines are in assembly for x86 and x86-64 architectures with both SSE4 and AVX support. Bandwidth also includes automatic graphing of the results, stored to a BMP image file. The network bandwidth tests support Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows/Cygwin.
Release Notes: This release runs to completion on AMD processors.
NoMachine NX is a fast terminal server and desktop virtualization system based on the X11 protocol. NX is an order of magnitude faster than VNC or X11 and can run on bandwidth as narrow as 10 kBit/sec. In addition, NX translates and embeds the MS Windows Terminal Server and VNC protocols into X/NX, enabling users to compress and accelerate remote Windows and VNC sessions. The NX project provides a suite of libraries and X11 proxying agents implementing efficient compression and optimized transport of X11, SMB, IPP, HTTP, and arbitrary protocols like audio and video over the Internet.
Release Notes: The node package provides a new nxagent that fixes some visualization problems. One of these problems was that terminal output could become invisible (white on white) in an NX session. Another problem was that some text and icons could be displayed incorrectly inside a GNOME or KDE session.
MeteoIO is a C++ library whose main design goals are: providing meteorological data format/protocol independent data access; providing safe and robust I/O; making I/O code as unobtrusive and simple as possible for the user; providing ready to use data to the user (transparent caching, filtering, resampling, and spatial interpolation); enabling unattended use from an I/O point of view; offering high modularity so that individual elements of the library can easily be replaced/expanded/added; and by its modularity, help interdisciplinary development, each module being targeted at a specific developer profile.
Release Notes: The structure has been deeply modified in order to address several shortcomings and bugs. A new user interface class has been designed. The filtering infrastructure was rewritten. The spatial interpolations were integrated. The buffering was refocused on buffering issues. The meteorological data structures have been merged with the metadata structures in order to make the user code simpler and more compact. A first set of meteorological physical laws has been introduced around sun and standard atmosphere models.
