libjc is a framework for event-driven development in C. Programs that use it can perform an arbitrary number of operations simultaneously and in the background, and later wait for some or all of them to complete. The source package includes the core library along with a few objects, each of which is able to perform a set of related operations. This framework consumes significantly less memory than standard libraries, and it scales well to multiprocessor systems.
Release Notes: This release adds an almost-complete X11 protocol library and an asynchronous X11 client. Only core protocol messages are currently supported; support for some standard X11 extensions may be added in the future. In addition, a bug in the core library was fixed, several functions were added, and some additions were made to the configuration library.
CacheGuard Appliance is an all-in-one OS appliance providing firewall, antivirus, caching, compression, bandwidth allocation, load balancing, reverse and forward proxy, high availability, Web application firewall, URL guarding, and more. It can be purchased as an OS to install on your server, as an OS to run in a virtual machine, or as a hardware appliance.
Release Notes: Now the proxy is allowed to connect to ports between 1024 and 49151. The bug that prevented clients from connecting to the internal DNS when the appliance didn't use itself as a DNS server has been fixed.
Strategico is an engine for running statistical analysis over groups of time series. It can manage one or more groups (projects) of time series: by default, you can get data from a database or CSV files, normalize them, and then save them inside the engine. The first statistical analysis implemented inside Strategico is the "Long Term Prediction": it automatically finds the best model that fits each time series. Some of the models implemented are mean, trend, linear, exponential smoothing, and Arima. Strategico is scalable: the statistical analysis over each time series (of a project) can be run separately and independently. It is suggested that you set up an HPC Cluster (High Performance Computing) and/or use a resource scheduler like slurm. It is developed with R, one of the most famous statistical languages.
Release Notes: The Online service/form of Long Term Prediction was improved with a new Parameter field. Some useful functions have been added (e.g. EvalItemFromProjectData: data is dynamically grouped) and many runit tests. Some fixes.
openBibleViewer provides an easy but powerful access to about 450 Bible resources. Features include reading ZenfaniaXML modules, reading BibleQuote modules, search, sessions, an MDI interface, notes, marks, bookmarks, zoom, printing, and the ability to export as plain text or HTML.
Release Notes: Support for TheWord Bibles. Shows more than one chapter in a window. Better links. Every module has its own display settings. There is a new module model.
EDB (Evan's Debugger) is a Qt4 based binary mode debugger with the goal of having usability on par with OllyDbg. It uses a plugin architecture, so adding new features can be done with ease. The current release is for Linux, but future releases will target more platforms.
Release Notes: State structures are now defined in the DebuggerCore instead of in the main source, which will allow better portability in the future. It has improved edisassm decoding and organization. It fixes some corner cases in search routines. It fixes a false positive in "main" detection for non C binaries. There is preliminary thread debugging support (it's still very experimental; expect it to not work 100% correctly). Analyzer code and speed has been improved. The plugin interface has been cleaned up. If it doesn't need to be in the public headers, it won't be. There are many small bugfixes.
adsuck is a small DNS server that spoofs blacklisted addresses and forwards all other queries. The idea is to be able to prevent connections to undesirable sites such as ad servers, crawlers, etc. It can be used locally, for the road warrior, or on the network perimeter in order to protect local machines from malicious sites.
Release Notes: This release fixes a buffer underflow that could result in a crash. It adds SOA when replying NXDOMAIN. It has an Additional section when spoofing to an IP address. The dhclient script has been fixed. Updated hosts files from various sources.
nginx is an HTTP server and mail proxy server. It has been running for more than two years on many heavily loaded Russian sites, including Rambler (RamblerMedia.com). In March 2007, about 20% of all Russian virtual hosts were served or proxied by nginx.
Release Notes: This release fixes some CPU loading issues with the cache manager. It fixes custom 401 error messages. It fixes minor issues with the image_filter.
OpenDKIM is a DKIM implementation with both a C library for writing your own applications and a milter-aware filter for use with recent MTAs.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release. Upgrading is recommended for all users, especially those running 2.3.1.

Release Notes: This release fixes some minor, but annoying bugs, including handling of PHP magic_quotes and AJAX issues. It also features a better installation path detection code.
The WiKID Strong Authentication System is a highly scalable, secure two-factor authentication system. It is simple to implement and maintain, allows users to be validated automatically, requires no hardware tokens, has a simple API for application support (via Ruby, PHP, Java, COM, Python, etc.), supports multiple domains, and supports replication for fault tolerance and scalability. It also supports mutual /host and transaction authentication, wireless tokens only domains, locked tokens (to your PC), anti-keystroke logger keypad PIN entry, etc.
Release Notes: This RPM has the binaries used for tacacs and replication. A minor update was made. A build issue that dropped a file was fixed.
UseBB is a PHP/MySQL forum package. Unlike other popular forum systems, it does not strive to have as many features as possible, but to be one of the easiest and most usable forum packages, limiting the basic feature set to only the essential. It is an ideal solution for small to medium-sized Web sites which require an easy to use forum package without the bloat, that produces standards compliant output, and is secure and easily configurable.
Release Notes: This is a general improvement and maintenance release, fixing security issues and bugs, enhancing general security and removing deprecated PHP functionality. Some small feature changes were made.
Asymptopia Crossword Builder (Math/Text) is an application that runs in any modern Web browser, but does not require an Internet connection (if it is installed locally). The application was designed to allow teachers to quickly produce well-designed, challenging activities. The application features a configuration panel where the user can either enter their own word-hint pairs, or generate math-crossword problems via a single button. The math functionality generates word:hint pairs like: "four:7/x-3/8=11/8", where the hint corresponds to the problem, and the student would write the letters "four" in the corresponding boxes of the puzzle.
Release Notes: An MIT license option was added.
Ariadne is a Web Application Framework and Content Management System built with PHP. It allows you to build complex Web applications and sites with ease. It takes care of the mundane stuff like internationalization, security, user management, templating, data retrieval and storage, caching, and site management. It stores content in a structured object store that can be accessed through an extensive filesystem-like API.
Release Notes: Another round of small improvements and bugfixes was made while polish and preparations are made for the upcoming 2.8 release, as well as some nice new features to play with.
gjrand is a programmer's library for pseudo-random numbers. It includes random number generator testing code and is intended for simulation, games, and "Monte-Carlo" algorithms. It produces pseudo-random numbers of the types: uniform integers, uniform reals, normally distributed reals, binomial, Poisson, integer permutation, chi-squared distribution, "Student" T distribution, and spherical distribution.
Release Notes: There are new API functions for shuffles, choosing, and sampling. There are new test programs for the new functions.
The Scalable Assembler at Notre Dame (SAND) replaces the early stages of the Celera Assembler with scalable versions that can run on collections of commodity computers. By harnessing clusters, clouds, grids, or just random machines in your office, many bioinformatics tasks can be reduced from weeks or months down to minutes or hours.
Release Notes: A number of minor portability issues were fixed, so SAND now compiles cleanly on a wide variety of platforms and architectures.
Remote Launcher is an easy to use tool that enables you to launch applications remotely on your PC via your Android device with a single click. It can also be used to start your PC up, even if it is turned off, with the built in support for Wake On LAN. It consists of an Android app and a small server program for your PC. You can configure Remote Launcher to start any application on your PC. For example, it can start your mediacenter, shutdown or restart the computer, or run a custom script.
Release Notes: A confirmation dialog before launching was added to prevent accidental clicks. The option to enable or disable the confirmation dialog was added.
Fabula is a Python game engine suitable for adventure, role-playing, and strategy games and digital interactive storytelling. It offers a client-server architecture, an event-based protocol, multiplayer and networking capabilities, a multi-threaded server, an abstract, visualization-agnostic model of a game world, an asset manager, and a plugin system. Gameplay can be recorded and played back. The code is well documented and runs on Linux and MS Windows (it should work on OS X, too, but this has not yet been tested). Fabula can be used as a library to develop your own games. As an alternative, you can use the included Pygame-based graphical editor and the default game engine.
Release Notes: Fabula now supports rooms larger than the screen in the client and the editor. The underlying rendering architecture was changed to pre-render backgrounds and resize bitmaps to fit the size of the room. Moving the mouse to the edges of the window triggers horizontal scrolling. Loading large background images in the editor now creates a room of an appropriate size. Fabula applications now read options from a configuration file, most prominently the "fullscreen" option. Minor fixes and documentation updates were made.
gm4lin is a Linux driver for the serial port GM-45 and GM-10 radiation detectors. The driver is able to handle virtually any number of detectors connected to a single computer and to log data to the screen, to ASCI files or to a MySQL database (local or remote). Average activity and pulse mode with a fake RC decay are available in order to come as close as possible to common analog radiations detectors. This is console-only software.
Release Notes: An improved MySQL structure has been introduced for data logging. The device number as well as timestamp, measured value, and units are now stored in the MySQL table if enabled by the user.
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: A bug in the mkisofs emulation of xorriso could cause options to be ignored. The problem was freshly introduced with libisoburn-1.0.6. Users who downloaded this version are now urged to get libisoburn-1.0.8.
Blender is a free 3D animation studio. It includes tools for modeling, sculpting, texturing (painting, node-based shader materials, or UV mapped), UV mapping, rigging and constraints, weight painting, particle systems, simulation (fluids, physics, and soft body dynamics and an external crowd simulator), rendering, node-based compositing, and non linear video editing, as well as an integrated game engine for real-time interactive 3D, and game creation and playback with cross-platform compatibility.
Release Notes: This is the first stable release of the Blender 2.5 series. Thousands of fixes were made since the last stable release, and over 450 fixes were made since 2.56a beta. OS integration was improved. Fluid particles, solidify, screw modifiers, a network renderer, a render engine API, a Python console, and BVH motion capture export were added. Collada support and rendering with approximate indirect light were improved.
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: A bug in the mkisofs emulation of xorriso could cause options to be ignored. The problem was freshly introduced with GNU xorriso-1.0.6. Users who downloaded this version are now urged to get GNU xorriso-1.0.8.
TreeLine is used to organize and store text data in a tree structure. It is well suited to keeping track of many different types of information. Each node of the tree can contain several defined fields, forming a mini-database. The format of each node can be defined, and the output can be shown on the screen, printed, or exported to HTML. The tree structure is navigated and edited in the left pane of the window, while various views of the child data are shown and editable in the right pane. The data is stored in XML text files. TreeLine is based on the PyQt library.
Release Notes: This release ends the 1.3.x development series. Changes since 1.3.5 include the remembering of previous directories for path-based fields, the addition of toolbar icons for window commands, and the correction of a column control bug in HTML export. Major changes since 1.2.x include the ability to operate with multiple windows, the ability to update the same file from multiple windows, a command to add internal links to text, a new multiple-directory HTML export, searchable help, and toolbar/shortcut reset buttons to undo customizations.
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: A typographical error that caused cdrecord-3.01a03 to abort before the permitted CD-Text size has been reached was fixed.
OpenIcons is a set of SVG icons intended to be used on the Web. All the icons are vector-based and made using InkScape. The icons can easily be converted from SVG to pretty much any common graphics format. Since the icons are meant to be used primarily on the Web, the default distribution of the icons includes PNG copies of all icons scaled to the following sizes: 16x16, 32x32, 64x64, and 128x128 pixels.
Release Notes: 25 new icons were added, bringing the total to 281.
