Release Notes: Many internal changes and translation updates were made. PHP5 and CKEditor are now used. Bugs were fixed.
wsrep-enabled MySQL (previously MySQL/Galera cluster) can use wsrep replication providers, such as Galera, to form a cluster. wsrep API is an abstract replication interface that supports global transaction ID, true multi-master capability, conflict detection and resolution, and parallel applying and is transparent to triggers, stored procedures, and functions by replicating only final transaction results. Only the InnoDB storage engine and DDL commands are supported by this patch.
Release Notes: MySQL was updated to 5.1.53. Two reported group communication layer issues that led to spontaneous cluster unavailability were fixed. Miscellaneous small fixes and cleanups were done.
DIASER is a cloud storage class combined geo-data replication, long-term archive system, and WAN vault application. Manage long term mixed data archives generated by existing backup software. Ensure availability using commodity hardware. Retain administrative and financial control. It combines a disk-based backup volume management system and triple redundancy with a storage architecture designed to structure months to years of long term sustainable archiving space. It is a quick and low-cost way to make an environment more robust by backing up data in multiple places. This replication also provides fast retrieval of archived data from all node hosting locations. A Perl installer creates the system. Nodes can be dedicated to storage or used for existing services over unused bandwidth. DIASER works in user space over SSH.
Release Notes: This release contains a large number of code changes made according to Perl Best Practices and Perl::Critic advisories. Level 5 and 4 are complete for the CLI management tool, as well as most level 3 changes. Some development structures have been added to the CSM; these files contain development environment variables, settings, and aliases used to govern and enhance the coding environment. Http conf.d has been modified to avoid duplicate aliases.

Release Notes: Report quality histograms now have optional normal distribution curves. Single line charts now have the option of a trend line and data smoothing (weighted rolling average). Histograms now display better when there are many bins. The layout of the project selection form was simplified and the preferences form was changed. Labels when users are selecting a range of groups rather than discrete groups e.g. in ANOVA were changed. Medians and other summary data were added to Wilcoxon output. A more useful message is displayed when there are early errors running the program. The next "What's up" connection date is only delayed if it successfully gets through.

WANPIPE S-series is a family of intelligent multi-protocol WAN and ADSL adapters that support data transfer rates up to 8Mbps. All WAN protocols supported by WANPIPE are implemented in firmware and run on the card. An advantage of an intelligent adapter is that it offloads the system CPU and improves stability. By adding a Sangoma WAN/ADSL component to the Linux kernel, one can create a powerful multi-T1/ADSL router/firewall with proven reliability of Linux. Sangoma S-series cards support an optional on board T1/E1 CSU/DSU that eliminates all external components of a traditional routing solution: i.e. T1/E1 line can be directly connected to the card. WANPIPE supports the following protocols, ATM, ADSL, Frame Relay, PPP, MULTILINK PPP, CHDLC, X25(API), BitStreaming (API), BiSync(API), and SDLC(API). Furthermore, WANPIPE supports custom API development such as: Credit card verification, Voice-over IP, Satellite Comm. All device drivers are part of the standard Linux Kernel distribution.
