Download Website 02 May 21:58 Lilith Logback event viewer 0.9.41


Lilith is a logging and access event viewer for the Logback logging framework. It has features comparable to Chainsaw, a logging event viewer for log4j. This means that it can receive logging events from remote applications using Logback as their logging backend. It uses files to buffer the received events locally, so it is possible to keep vast amounts of logging events at your fingertip while still being able to check only the ones you are really interested in by using filtering conditions.

Release Notes: This is an interim release because of a rather critical bug. Webapps using a ClassicMultiplexSocketAppender would not undeploy properly because of a dangling classloader. The original intent was to wait for Logback 0.9.29 due to the issues with 0.9.28 described in "Known Issues", but an ETA for the next release was unavailable.

No download Website 02 May 21:00 Fotoxx 11.05.1


Fotoxx navigates an image collection using a thumbnail browser to choose images to view or edit. Edit functions include brightness, contrast, color, gamma, white balance, tone mapping, red eyes, sharpen, blur, noise suppression, smart erase, trim (crop), resize, rotate, add text, bend/warp, many art effects, HDR, HDF, stack, and panorama. Edit functions use movable curves and sliders. Feedback is live using the whole image. RAW files can be edited and saved with deep color. Areas or objects can be selected using freehand draw, follow edge, and tone matching. Selections can be edited in place with adjustable blending. They can also be cut and pasted into other images. Any metadata can be edited, reported, and searched (filenames, tags, dates, geotags, comments, captions, ratings, etc.). Collections (arbitrary subsets) can be defined and viewed. Batch functions are available for rename, resize/export, RAW conversion, and more.

Release Notes: A new function was added to remove the dark spots on images made from dusty slides. Named image collections are easier to manage: images can be added, removed, and rearranged by clicking images on a thumbnail gallery. The trim (crop) function better handles zoom and scroll, and a desired image size can be input directly in addition to the mouse drag method. Smart Erase was made faster (significant for slow computers). Select Area edge distance calculations for hairy edges was made over 2x faster. Two minor bugs were fixed.

Download No website 02 May 13:21 Strategico 1.0.0


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: An online Web service was implemented. Output can be stored in a database. A unique .R console file (using getopt) was added. Performance was improved.
