Task Coach is a simple todo manager to manage personal tasks and todo lists. It grew out of a frustration that well-known task managers, such as those provided with Outlook or Lotus Notes, do not provide facilities for composite tasks. Often, tasks and other things to do consist of several activities. Task Coach is designed to deal with composite tasks.
Release Notes: This is a mixed bugfix and feature release.
GTKMan is a simple manual page viewer. Manual pages are viewed by specifying their name and optionally the section they are in, just as with the original man command. The manual pages are displayed in simple text form using the default system monospace font.
Release Notes: This release adds functionality for finding text in the manual pages.
PieDock is a task bar in the shape of a pie menu that appears directly around your mouse cursor. It feels a little bit like the Mac OS X dock but in a circular shape.
Release Notes: This release will switch through windows of the active application only. It fixes loading of PNG files with a bit depth of 16.
gEcrit is a source code editor oriented toward Python. It tries to keep the interface as clean as possible and keep the menus simple. It features all the common features a Python programmer might need, including an interactive Python interpreter and operating system shell. It supports a plugin system for expandability.
Release Notes: This release improves the Class Hierarchy browser and trailing space removal(which was actually buggy), adds comment and uncomment buttons for selections, and adds full-screen support.
nss-pam-ldapd is a Name Service Switch module and Pluggable Authentication Module using an LDAP server. It allows your LDAP server to provide user account, group, host name, alias, netgroup, and almost any other information that you would normally get from /etc flat files or NIS, and allows you to do authentication to an LDAP server.
Release Notes: This release fixes a serious security vulnerability that allows authentication with an incorrect password for local user accounts (CVE-2011-0438). This development release also includes a file that was missing for Solaris support, includes FreeBSD support that was partially taken from the FreeBSD port, and more work on the Python implementation of nslcd.
FXiTe is an advanced cross-platform text editor built with the Fox GUI toolkit and the FXScintilla text widget. It features built-in syntax highlighting for 40+ languages, an embedded Lua scripting engine, macro recording and playback, multi-line regular expression search and replace, rudimentary ctags and calltip support, a flexible interface to external tools, and a built-in "message window" to capture the output of external commands such as compiler error messages, etc.
Release Notes: Horizontal scrolling was improved, file open dialogs are easier to use, and there are many more small improvements and bugfixes. This release compiles and runs on MINIX. Scintilla was updated to version 2.24, and some platform-specific issues were fixed for FreeBSD and MS Windows.
Winetricks is a multi-purpose tool for Wine that helps when Windows applications forget to bundle needed runtime libraries, fonts, tools, or plugins. It knows the safest place to legally get the missing files (often at microsoft.com), and will painlessly install them for you. It also can tweak Wine settings, and can automatically install about 100 applications and games, including any needed workarounds. It is a simple shell script, and does not require installation. If invoked with no arguments, it displays a simple GUI to let you pick exactly what you would like to install.
Release Notes: This version adds two games (CSI: Fatal Conspiracy Demo and Farming Simulator 2011 Demo) and a new version of mono (2.10). It also adds a help button, a button to unhide broken titles,and a scary warning on the dinput and directx9 verb menu items. It also fixes a number of bugs: in particular, corefonts should download properly again.
Excel Writer is a package for easily writing Excel files with basic formatting. It allows for the automatic production of reports. It uses totally portable code that builds for every system without any specific piece of code. It does not interact with Excel.
Release Notes: Cell merging on a row has been implemented, at least in a very light way. Some unexpected display of built-in numeric formats (percentages) on some versions of Excel with some language settings has been fixed.
Zorba is a general-purpose XQuery processor implementing in C++ the W3C family of specifications. It is not an XML database. The query processor has been designed to be embeddable in a variety of environments, such as other programming languages extended with XML processing capabilities, browsers, database servers, XML message dispatchers, or smartphones. Its architecture employes a modular design, which allows customizing the Zorba query processor to the environment’s needs. In particular, the architecture of the query processor allows a pluggable XML store (e.g. main memory, DOM stores, persistent disk-based large stores, and S3 stores).
Release Notes: Various bugfixes.
cdrtools (formerly cdrecord) creates home-burned CDs/DVDs with a CDR/CDRW/DVD/BluRay recorder. It works as a burn engine for several applications. It supports CD/DVD/BD recorders from many different vendors; all SCSI-3/mmc- and ATAPI/mmc-compliant drives should also work. Supported features include IDE/ATAPI, parallel port, and SCSI drives; audio CDs, data CDs, and mixed CDs; full multi-session support; CD-RWs, DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW, BD-R/BD-RE; and TAO, DAO, RAW, and human-readable error messages. cdrtools includes remote SCSI support and can access local or remote CD/DVD/BD writers.
Release Notes: This release will try to use the actual sense count instead of a standard value for REQUEST SENSE on newer FreeBSD versions. It will try to restore the SCSI status byte and the command error after doing a manual REQUEST SENSE for failed commands on AIX, UnixWare, Apollo Domain, and for Linux Parallel Port SCSI. Cdrecord now warns when someone tries to write more CD-Text than possible for a single language. Several typos have been fixed in the cdda2wav man page. Some forgotten options have been added to the mkisofs man page.
puddletag is a tag editor for Linux loosely based on mp3tag. It uses a table layout so that all the tags you want to edit by hand are visible and easily editable. puddletag excels at automating repetitive tasks like extracting tag information from filenames, tagging files from a text file or the clipboard, renaming or moving files and folders based on tags by using patterns, and manipulating tags using actions and regular expressions. Supported formats include id3v1, id3v2 (.mp3), AAC (.m4a), VorbisComments (.ogg, .flac), and APEv2 (.ape). Much of mp3tag's functionality has been replicated with added enhancements and tweaks.
Release Notes: New Cover art support for all formats (except ASF) Loading master releases in the Discogs.com tag source. For ID3 tags, UFID frames are only loaded if data can be decoded to UTF-8. MusicBrainz artist search retrieves 100 albums by default. Initial reading of a directory can be canceled now. Uncaught errors for Tag Sources shouldn't leave the Tag Sources window disabled anymore. Discogs artist/albums are parsed correctly instead of looking weird. Amazon keyword search wasn't working at all. Having periods in the Tag->Dir function were causing problems.
A fail2ban lite. IPQ BDB is a netfilter userspace daemon that can block or mark IP packets according to iptables rules that issue the corresponding -j NFQUEUE, as well as a Berkeley database of bad IPv4 addresses. A log parser and a banning utility add entries to the database. An IP has to be caught a configurable number of times before being blocked. Transitions between blocked and non-blocked are faded using probabilities. A halving period governs IP rehabilitation.
Release Notes: There is a new option --exec-connkill (-e for short) in ibd-ban and ibd-parse. When this option is given, if an updated address reaches 100% block probability, then an external command is invoked. The command is to be configured in a new configuration file, and presumably kills any established connection. Using "conntrack -D" seems to work well, as it allows the stateful firewall to thereafter detect extraneous packets on its own. New options for ibd-judge allow it to configure nfnetfilter buffer size, ENOBUFS error notification, and each queue's max length. Various fixes.
Exscript is a scripting language for automating network connections over protocols such as Telnet or SSH. It is in some ways comparable to Expect, but has some unique features that make it a lot easier to use and understand for non-developers. It supports parallelization, logging, authentication mechanisms, and a lot more.
Release Notes: The protocol API was vastly improved and handles prompt matching in a much more robust manner. Support for interactive connections was added. Exscript now includes Telnet and SSH servers. Exscript.util.mail has support for sending mail with attachments. Numerous new utilities for sysadmins and developers were added. Most external dependencies have been removed: Exscript now only requires Paramiko and python-crypto. Support for SSH version 1 was removed.
SpamCheck is an email scanning and quarantine system for Linux systems. Making use of a number of open source technologies, including SpamAssassin, Exim, and MySQL, it provides an easy-to-use, but powerful method to filter email for your domain. Once configured, multiple domains can be added and administered with the Web interface. Email is scanned and scored, non-spam is then passed on to a destination email server, while spam is either blocked or quarantined. Individual users can log in and review their quarantined email, and manage their settings through the Web-based interface.
Release Notes: This release fixes the text portion of MIME email messages.
GNU xorriso creates, loads, manipulates, and writes ISO 9660 filesystem images with Rock Ridge extensions. Files can be copied in and out. The session results get written to optical media or to filesystem objects. Rather than needing external tools for ISO 9660 production and CD/DVD/BD burning, it is a static compilation of libburnia-project.org. Thus GNU xorriso depends only on fundamental operating system facilities.
Release Notes: This release fixes several bugs in its mkisofs emulation. The emulation (xorrisofs) has its own man page and info document.
libburnia is a project comprised of libraries and binaries for reading, mastering, and writing optical discs. It provides libburn, a CD/DVD/BD burn library, libisofs, a manipulation library for ISO 9660 filesystems, and libisoburn, a ISO 9660 multi-session library. On top of them there is cdrskin, a cdrecord emulator, and xorriso, a all-in-one application for ISO 9660 multi-session operations which additionaly provides a limited emulation of mkisofs.
Release Notes: Several bugs were fixed in the libraries and in the mkisofs emulation of xorriso. This emulation has its own man page and info document.
Jug is a task-based parallelism framework. Jug allows you to write code that is broken up into tasks and run different tasks on different processors. It uses the filesystem to communicate between processes and works correctly over NFS, so you can coordinate processes on different machines. Jug is a pure Python implementation and should work on any platform that can run Python.
Release Notes: This release introduces Tasklets, which are lightweight tasks that do not save their results to disk (but rather compute them whenever needed).
Qt is a comprehensive, object-oriented development framework that enables development of high-performance, cross-platform rich-client and server-side applications. When you implement a program with Qt, you can run it on the X Window System (Unix/X11), Apple Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows NT/9x/2000/XP by simply compiling the source code for the platform you want. Qt is the basis for the KDE desktop environment, and is also used in numerous commercial applications such as Google Earth, Skype for Linux, and Adobe Photoshop Elements.
Release Notes: Many minor bugs were fixed. The first official release of Qt Quick is now also included.
yahoo2mbox retrieves the messages from Yahoo! Groups archive and stores them in a local file in mbox format.
Release Notes: Canadian groups are supported with "--country=ca". Access to French groups was fixed.
Khayyam is a program for composing 3D scenes for rendering (similar to Poser and DAZ Studio). It can import character and scene models from many model formats (Poser, MD5, BSP, OBJ, 3DS, Collada, and formats used in most Illusion games). There is support for basic object placement, scaling, posing skeletal characters, and lighting. Scenes can be exported in POV-Ray format for rendering. Khayyam is implemented as a shell program using many libraries from the Floyd and Sodipodi projects.
Release Notes: This release fixes the incorrect gamma of exported PNG textures so POV-Ray renders will now look nearly identical to Khayyam screens. Both directional lights and spotlights cast shadows. There is support for importing Illusion Yuusha models and exporting BVH animation files with user-specified root bone. Many bugs were fixed in various places.
Cego implements a relational and transactional database system with support for the SQL query language. The current release contains the most common database features for basic table manipulation and data retrieval. Indexes, foreign keys, views, and stored procedures are also implemented. Future releases (2.0 and above) will support a multi-node database concept with log file shipping for an automatic database application failover.
Release Notes: A bug regarding multidimensional ordering was fixed.
Mathomatic is a portable, general-purpose computer algebra system (CAS) that can solve, differentiate, simplify, combine, and compare algebraic equations, perform standard, complex number, modular, and polynomial arithmetic, etc. It does some calculus and is very easy to compile/install, learn, and use. The symbolic math application with a simple command-line interface is designed to be a colorful algebra calculator that is reliable, responsive, and convenient to use. The symbolic math library is lightweight and easy to include in other software, due to being written entirely in C with no additional dependencies.
Release Notes: Many minor cleanups and corrections were made. The code was made completely deterministic, so that various systems will all give the same results. The plot command was improved, allowing equation-number-ranges on the command line. Command simplification is now 60 times faster in some cases.
Gentoo Linux is a versatile and fast Linux distribution for x86, PowerPC, Sparc, and Sparc64 that's geared towards Linux power users. Unlike other distros, it has an advanced package management system called Portage. Portage is a true ports system in the tradition of BSD ports, but is Python-based and sports a number of advanced features including dependencies, fine-grained package management, "fake" (OpenBSD-style) installs, path sandboxing, safe unmerging, system profiles, virtual packages, config file management, and more.
Release Notes: This version features Linux Kernel 2.6.37 (with Gentoo patches), accessibility support with Speakup 3.1.6, bash 4.1, glibc 2.12.2, gcc 4.5.2, binutils 2.21, python 2.7.1 and 3.1.3, perl 5.12.3, and more.
DDMSence (pronounced "dee-dee-em-Essence") is the only Java library that fully supports the DoD Discovery Metadata Specification (DDMS). It provides a complete implementation of the DDMS specification using any DDMS version between 2.0 and 5.0. Validation is performed according to both the schema and the specification, and custom validation rules can be defined with ISO Schematron.
Release Notes: This release corrects a syntax error in the bundled sample Schematron file, and allows "3.0.1" to be used as an alias for DDMS 3.0 (coinciding with the release of DDMS 3.0.1, which is only a documentation change). It is backwards compatible with all releases since 1.4.0.
Zarafa allows you to share Outlook email and calendars, even when you are out of the office, via Outlook, with your PocketPC or through WebAccess. Command line tools are provided to integrate with your existing MTA for email delivery and for user creation/editing.
Release Notes: Debian 6 ("squeeze") packages were added. The Zarafa-MSR was also added to this version, making it possible to migrate users between servers in a multi-server environment.
