It simplifies the process of producing thumbnails from existing image files and image objects by providing an API which allows for fine tuning of thumbnail generation, while keeping the amount of code that needs to be written to a minimum.
Release Notes: A minor update to the builder interface to allow the use of Iterables to specify the input images.
SaVi is satellite visualization software that lets you create, run, examine, and modify satellite orbits in two and three dimensions. Simulations of Iridium, Globalstar, Galileo, GPS, and other satellite constellations are included. SaVi requires Tcl and Tk on a system with Unix libraries. SaVi works well with the 3D renderer Geomview. Geomview is optional, though recommended for its 3D rendering capabilities.
Release Notes: This release builds on Tcl/Tk 8.6b1, updates the O3b script based on the latest information, adds simulations of Japanese NeLS rosette and COMMstellation, allows selection between existing J2 and classical J0 orbital models with the -orbit-model flag, provides keyboard menu shortcuts (except on buggy Mac Tk), warns against deletion of help text files, supports building with just 'make' on x86_64 Linux systems, and adds notes on packaging and release processes.
Visopsys is an alternative operating system for PC compatible computers. Under development since late 1997, this system is small, fast, and open source. It features a simple but functional graphical interface, real preemptive multitasking, and virtual memory.

Its main features are extremely accurate emulation of screen and sound (both speaker and AY-3-8912 sound chip), emulation of joysticks (kempston, cursor, and Sinclair), and emulation of 48K (both issue 2 and issue 3), classic 128K, Plus 2, and Plus 2A. It supports Z80 snapshot files (both loading and saving) and TAP files (allowing normal loading or fast-speed loading).
Release Notes: A bug in the ALSA sound subsystem was fixed.
Armadillo is a C++ linear algebra library (matrix maths) aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use. The API is deliberately similar to Matlab's. Integer, floating point, and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS numerics libraries. A delayed evaluation approach, based on template meta-programming, is used (during compile time) to combine several operations into one and reduce or eliminate the need for temporaries.
Release Notes: This release has a faster sort() function. The installation was updated to detect recent versions of Intel's MKL. Handling of subcubes was expanded, allowing interpretation of arbitrary "flat" subcubes as matrices.

It has support for many filesystem types (Reiserfs, Btrfs, Ext2/3/4, HFS+, ISO-9660, Squashfs, UDF, XFS, JFS, UFS2, CIFS, MS DOS, NTFS, and VFAT) and contains several utilities for system recovery. It also has IDE/SCSI/SATA, RAID, LVM2, and Ethernet/Wireless network support.
Release Notes: Some software was updated.
DIFFUSE enables FreeBSD's IPFW firewall subsystem to classify IP traffic based on statistical traffic properties. With DIFFUSE, IPFW computes statistics (such as packet lengths or inter-packet time intervals) for observed flows, and uses ML (machine learning) techniques to assign flows into classes. In addition to traditional packet inspection rules, IPFW rules may now also be expressed in terms of traffic statistics or classes identified by ML classification. This can be helpful when direct packet inspection is problematic (perhaps for administrative reasons, or because port numbers do not reliably identify classes of applications). DIFFUSE also enables one instance of IPFW to send flow information and classes to other IPFW instances, which then can act on such traffic (e.g. to prioritize, accept, or deny) according to its class. This allows for distributed architectures, where classification at one location in your network is used to control firewalling or rate-shaping actions at other locations.
Release Notes: A small number of bug fixes and tweaks were made.
