metaf2xml can download, parse, and decode aviation routine weather reports (METAR, SPECI, SAO), aerodrome forecasts (TAF), synoptic observations (SYNOP), and BUOY observations, and store the data as XML. XSLT style sheets convert it to plain language, as HTML or text. Current weather data from NOAA and other sources can be fetched and displayed.
Release Notes: 11 more groups in SYNOP section 3 are now processed, and processing of some other groups in sections 1, 2, and 3 has been improved. There is a new trend type "FM" for TAF reports. The XML nodes "reports" and below now have a non-empty namespace. The handling of time periods was improved. The option -X for metaf2xml.pl was removed. Many smaller improvements and a few bugfixes were made.
The stunnel program is designed to work as an SSL encryption wrapper between remote client and local (inetd-startable) or remote server. It can be used to add SSL functionality to commonly used inetd daemons like POP2, POP3, and IMAP servers without any changes in the programs' code. It will negotiate an SSL connection using the OpenSSL or SSLeay libraries. It calls the underlying crypto libraries, so stunnel supports whatever cryptographic algorithms you compiled into your crypto package.
Release Notes: OpenSSL DLLs were updated to version 1.0.0c. Transparent source (non-local bind) support was added for FreeBSD 8.x. Transparent destination ("transparent = destination") support was added for Linux. A number of bugfixes were also implemented.

PyChecker is a tool for finding common bugs in Python source code. It finds problems that are typically caught by a compiler (or lint) for less dynamic languages, like C and C++. Common errors that can be found include forgetting to import a module, misspelling a variable, passing the wrong number of parameters to a function/method, and not using a module/variable.
Release Notes: Support for Python 2.7 was added. In the new pcmodules.py module, the modulePath code no longer causes an import error. pychecker now allows lambda with setattr and const. pychecker -q on 64-bit no longer ignores the platform-specific stdlib. The order of checking files no longer affects the errors reported. PyChecker was only checking one of each set of modules with the same name, so it will now catch many warnings it was missing before.
