Download Website 30 Apr 17:32 Mathomatic 15.6.0


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: The polynomial factoring and polynomial division C code was finished and cleaned up, so polynomial operations give better results and are 30 times faster in some cases. The "simplify quick" option gives much better results now, sometimes better than any other simplify option. The coloring scheme was improved: all prompt and normal text is now the terminal emulator's default color for text (usually uncolored); expressions remain colored if color mode is enabled. m4 Mathomatic can now easily be made to work under BSD Unix.

Download Website 30 Apr 17:30 Seeks 0.3.3


Seeks is a Web search proxy, meta-search engine, and real-time P2P pattern matching network for social Web search. Its specific purpose is to regroup users whose queries are similar so they can share both the query results and their experience with these results. On this basis, Seeks allows true real-time, decentralized Web search to emerge. In the long term, there is no need for Web crawlers and third-party Web indexes. Most importantly, Seeks is intended to become a flagship for a fair, transparent, user controlled machinery for searching the Web over the Internet.

Release Notes: The parser and feeds/search engines connection were reworked. This allows using the same parser over several feeds. Each feed can be accessed independently from the API. Support was added for the following result formats: opensearch (ATOM and RSS), dokuwiki, and mediawiki. Support was added for remote user database, for personalization and other means. This allows you to export the user database away from the Seeks node itself. It is the first step towards enabling a mixture of remote user profiles in a forthcoming version.

Download Website 30 Apr 08:07 The IEC 61131-3 Structured Text to XML Com...


The IEC 61131-3 Structured Text to XML Compiler parses an IEC Structured Text source and generates an XML representation of the syntax tree of the source. Names defined in the IEC 61131-3 grammar are used as tag names, though underscore characters in the names of the non-terminal symbols are replaced with a minus sign. The result then can be further processed with the YML toolchain or with an XSLT stylesheet. The compiler is compatible with the 61131-3 ST standard as used in the Beremiz project, as well as with the dialect of EPAS 4.

Release Notes: This is the initial public release under the GPL 2.0. The compiler is also available under a commercial license on request.

Download Website 30 Apr 07:59 Unicorn 3.6.2


Unicorn is a Unix and LAN/localhost-optimized fork of the Mongrel HTTP server. It takes full advantage of functionality exclusive to Unix-like operating systems. It will reap and restart workers that die from broken apps, and there is no need to manage multiple processes yourself. Load balancing is done entirely by the operating system kernel. Requests never pile up behind a busy worker. The server does not care if your application is thread-safe or not, as workers all run within their own isolated address space and only serve one client at a time. All Rack applications are supported along with pre-Rack versions of Ruby on Rails via a Rack wrapper. It also supports atomic log cycling, nginx-style binary re-execution without losing connections, before_fork and after_fork hooks, and optional copy-on-write-friendly memory management.

Release Notes: The optional Unicorn::OobGC module was reimplemented to fix breakage. Minor documentation updates were made, though there were no code changes for non-OobGC users.

Download Website 30 Apr 07:58 fookebox 0.6.0


fookebox is a jukebox-style Web frontend to mpd. It can serve as a keyboard-less jukebox or as a generic mpd frontend, depending on your preferences.

Download Website 30 Apr 04:54 winetricks 20110429


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: Many bugs were fixed. The --noclean option was renamed to --no-clean for consistency. The script now knows how to launch a Web browser even on systems that lack xdg-open. New applications are supported: Borders Desktop, Amazon Kindle, Nook for PC, Opera 11, and Songbird. New games are supported: Command & Conquer Red Alert 3 Demo, Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun, Crayon Physics Deluxe demo, Darkspore, Digitanks Demo, Myth II: Soulblighter demo, and Tropico 3 Demo.

    Download Website 30 Apr 04:53 Botan 1.9.17


    Botan is a crypto library written in C++. It provides a variety of cryptographic algorithms, including common ones such as AES, MD5, SHA, HMAC, RSA, Diffie-Hellman, DSA, and ECDSA, as well as many others that are more obscure or specialized. It also offers SSL/TLS (client and server), X.509v3 certificates and CRLs, and PKCS #10 certificate requests. A message processing system that uses a filter/pipeline metaphor allows for many common cryptographic tasks to be completed with just a few lines of code. Assembly and SIMD optimizations for common CPUs offers speedups for critical algorithms like AES and SHA-1.

    Release Notes: This release adds some new options for controlling use of Sphinx and Doxygen for generating documentation. A bug that broke runtime feature detection on x86 processors has been fixed. Support for the BeOS clone/continuation Haiku has been improved. This is the third and hopefully final release candidate for the next stable tree.

There is now full support for the non-SQL standard LIMIT clause, even in dialects where the LIMIT clause is not supported natively (especially Oracle, but also DB2, SQL Server, and Sybase, which have limitations). jOOQ simulates LIMITs by rendering nested selects filtering on ROWNUM (Oracle) or on ROW_NUMBER() (DB2, SQL Server, and Sybase).

    Download Website 30 Apr 04:47 libjpeg 8c


    libjpeg is a library for handling the JPEG (JFIF) image format. Included are the programs cjpeg and djpeg for converting to and from this format, jpegtran to perform some lossless transformations on JPEG imagess, and rdjpgcom and wrjpgcom to manipulate JFIF comments.

    Release Notes: A -block N option was added to the compression library and cjpeg for using different DCT block sizes. Values of 1 to 16 are possible, and the default is 8 (baseline format). Larger values produce higher compression, while smaller values produce higher quality. A SmartScale capable decoder (introduced with IJG JPEG 8) is required.

    Download Website 30 Apr 04:47 ImageVis3D 2.0.0


    ImageVis3D is a volume rendering application specifically designed to render large data sets. This is achieved by splitting the data set into multiple levels of detail (LoD), with each level itself decomposed into multiple bricks (atomic rendering primitives). Interaction occurs at the coarsest LoD, which can be rendered instantaneously on almost all modern systems. After a configurable delay, ImageVis3D will successively render finer levels of detail, until the data are visible at their native resolution. Volume rendering, as the name implies, is a technique for rendering scalar volumes of data. The rendering method allows one to see "inside" a data set, allowing the user to understand the inner three-dimensional structure of the data.

    Release Notes: Rendering of geometry data mixed with standard volume renderings is now supported. A '2D slicing' render method was added for improved GPU compatibility. Support for various new file formats was added, including Analyze 7.5. Data sets can now be loaded via drag and drop. Support for ImageVis3D Mobile 2.0 was added. RGB[A] data can now be visualized with the 1D transfer function. A command line converter was added. A number of bugs were fixed, some for long-standing issues. Better support and examples were added for using Tuvok without ImageVis3D.
