OpenCms ANT Build allows multiple OpenCms developers to develop OpenCms modules in their favorite IDEs. This combines the benefit of versioning, file editing support, and merging of concurrent changes with a defined upstream to the OpenCms development / test / production server.
Release Notes: To allow porting from build trees done with Eurelis OpenCMS Ant build, a special task attribute "keywordprefix" allows you to specify the special prefix in property files for magic properties. Missing property files now may be created by the manifest builder task in case "guessfiletypes" is set to true and "failonmissingpropertyfile" is set to false. This helps a lot if your developers are continuously too sloppy to add property files when adding new files to the build tree.
The Fedora Project is a community-run Linux distribution sponsored by Red Hat.
Release Notes: Most prominently, the new default desktop is GNOME 3. Systemd now replaces SysVinit for increased boot speed and maintainability.

With MetaModel, you use a type-safe SQL-like API for querying any datastore. It is a data access framework providing a common interface for exploration and querying of different types of datastores. It isn't a data mapping framework. Instead, it emphasizes abstraction of metadata and the ability to add data sources at runtime, making MetaModel great for generic data processing applications, but less so for applications modeled around a particular domain.
Release Notes: This release fixes an issue when encountering excel spreadsheets containing unparsable formulas. It improves automatic fetch size calculation for queries that are guaranteed to yield only a single row.
Sous-marin Linux is a small, pure, individualized Slackware installation system using only scripts and a minimum of resources. Sous-marin's utilities allow you to create an installer CD and tagfiles, choose the minimum of pure Slackware packages you need, and then FTP/HTTP install the system over the Net. It also includes sous-marin tools, formerly SlackBash scripts. These tools allow you to analyze any Slackware installation for missing libraries, files not in packages, packages dependencies, and so forth.
Release Notes: sous-marin turtle: README and INSTALL files have been added. All documentation is in the new /README directory. Entering 'lynx' on the command line brings up an index of all docs and relevant Internet links. Standard networking has been introduced by adding Slackware's rc.inet1 and rc.inet1.conf. All non-standard run control commands have been moved to rc.local. Installation to a new partition by unpacking the cpio archive has been tested. Details for both the local and Slackware installer installation are in the INSTALL file.
