mochad is a TCP gateway daemon for the X10 CM15A RF (radio frequency) and PL (power line) controller, the CM15Pro RF and PL controller, and the CM19A RF controller. The CM15Pro is the EU version of the CM15A. PL support includes extended dim and status query. Standard RF modules such as motion sensors and remote controls are supported. DS10A and MS10A RF security modules are supported. Ninja pan/tilt camera mounts can be controlled from mochad. The command line interface is well-suited for CGI scripts and cron jobs. mochad works well on embedded Linux systems such as OpenWRT and Chumby, so a PC is not required for always-on applications.
Release Notes: This release adds Flash XMLSocket support on port 1100 for Chumby widgets. It fixes an RF checksum problem when receiving from CM15A for house codes 9-16. It updates Chumby test apps, including a Chumby light control widget.
Iotop is a program with a top-like UI that shows which processes are performing the most I/O on a Linux system.
Release Notes: The netlink message parsing code was fixed to accept alignment padding. UTF-8 output is now forced even if the locale is misconfigured. The semantic of the 'a' key was changed to show stats since iotop was started.
rJSmin is a fast reimplemenation of jsmin.c by Douglas Crockford. Although it's written in Python, nearly all logic happens inside the regular expression engine: rJSmin is actually a single regex substitution call.
Release Notes: This release adds a C implementation to speed up things even more.
Exchanges is a Bash CGI script for collaborative creation of manuscripts. It allows new entries to be injected between existing entries. Owners of entries may edit or delete them. Anyone may comment on them. By default, one views the entire document. Exchanges are directory-based, with a single CGI handling multiple writing projects.
Release Notes: This is the initial freshmeat release announcement.
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 finishes work on Tasklets. There are many bugfixes since the Beta release (in the cleanup subcommand, status with --cache, and CompoundTask).
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 real-time monitor has been added (see the screenshot sample).
PBZIP2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file compressor that uses pthreads and achieves near-linear speedup on SMP machines. The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2 1.0.2 or newer (ie: anything compressed with PBZIP2 can be decompressed with bzip2).
Release Notes: This release fixes a hang on decompress with --ignore-trailing-garbage=1 when using more than 2 CPUs. The default extension on decompress of .tbz2 has been changed to .tar for bzip2 compatibility. Trailing garbage errors will now be printed even when in quiet mode.
The GNU Compiler Collection contains frontends for C, C++, Objective-C, Fortran, Java, and Ada as well as libraries for these languages. It is a full-featured ANSI C compiler with support for K&R C as well. GCC provides many levels of source code error checking traditionally provided by other tools (such as lint), produces debugging information, and can perform many different optimizations to the resulting object code.
Release Notes: Support for several processor architectures was obsoleted, while new platforms were added. A new general optimization level, -Ofast, was introduced. The Scalable Whole Program Optimizer (WHOPR) project has stabilized to the point of being usable. Many link-time and interprocedural optimization improvements were made. In the C family of languages, support for selectively enabling and disabling warnings was added. The experimental support for C++0x was improved, as well as for the C1X revision of the ISO C standard. Many C++ diagnostics were improved. Many other improvements were made.

BEdita is a Web development framework that comes with a full-featured content management system out of the box. BEdita 3 is a solid software environment, fully compatible and respectful of Web standards. The user interface has been developed in accordance with well-established rules in usability and ergonomics, but it is also practical and enjoyable. BEdita has been built upon CakePHP, the well known framework, from which it inherits the MVC design pattern. Moreover, a number of third party libraries and tools have been used, like JQuery, Smarty, and so on.
Release Notes: New object permissions were implemented for partial frontend access: a document may not be fully visible, but partially disclosed to expose a few pieces of information like title and previews (to search bots, for example). Recursion stops when a section is being self attached. User signup is moderated with email messages to administrators as an option. Frontend signup puts new users in frontend groups or groups defined in the configuration variable $config["authorizedGroups"] (in config/frontend.ini.php). Tags are now filtered to show only the ones related to the current publication. PostgreSQL support was improved.
SafeKeep is a centralized and easy to use backup application that combines the best features of a mirror and an incremental backup. It enhances the power of rdiff-backup with simple, centralized configuration, while adding support for LVM snapshots, database dumps, and convenient SSH key management.

Release Notes: The kernel and software were updated.
Doxygen is a cross-platform, JavaDoc-like documentation system for C++, C, Objective-C, C#, Java, IDL, Python, PHP, VHDL, and Fortran. Doxygen can be used to generate an on-line class browser (in HTML) and/or an off-line reference manual (in LaTeX or RTF) from a set of source files. Doxygen can also be configured to extract the code-structure from undocumented source files. This includes dependency graphs, class diagrams and hyperlinked source code. This type of information can be very useful to quickly find your way in large source distributions.
Release Notes: This releases fixes a number of bugs that have been found in the previous releases and adds an option that allows embedding of the class documentation inside the documentation of a group.
SQLObject is an object-relational mapper, i.e., a library that will wrap your database tables in Python classes and your rows in Python instances. It currently supports MySQL through the 'MySQLdb' package, PostgreSQL through the 'psycopg' package, SQLite, Firebird, MaxDB (SAP DB), MS SQL, and Sybase. It should support Python versions back to 2.4.
Release Notes: A major API change was made: the DB URI parser was changed to use urllib.split*() and unquote(). This means any username, password, and path are allowed in DB URIs if they are properly %-encoded. A new module __version__.py was added. In SQLite, id columns are made AUTOINCREMENT. The "backend" parameter in DB URI is no longer supported; the "driver" parameter should be used instead.
Click'n'Drag is a Python module that introduces the "Plane" class, which extends PyGame's "Surface" functionality, offering a hierarchy of mouse-sensitive, draggable Surfaces that can be used as sprites, windows, icons, or other interactive elements. In addition, the clickndrag.gui module uses clickndrag to provide basic GUI elements like container, label, text box, option list, and button.
Release Notes: Numerous changes were done to make clickndrag compatible with Python 2.x. It was tested with Python 2.6.5 and Python 3.1.2, using Pygame 1.9.1.
