Stemming is performed at query time and the stemming language can be switched after indexing.
Release Notes: This fixes an architecture-dependant startup crash in 1.15.8. There is no need to upgrade if you are not experiencing it.
Tomb is a system to make strong encryption easy for everyday use. A tomb is like a locked folder that can be safely transported and hidden in a filesystem. Its keys can be kept separate; for example, you can keep the tomb on your computer and its key on a USB stick. Tomb is written in code that is easy to review and links shared components: it consists of a ZShell script and desktop integration apps; it uses standard GNU tools and the cryptographic API of the Linux kernel (dm-crypt) via cryptsetup.
Release Notes: This release fixes desktop integration issues with various file managers, activating MIME types triggers and icons for tombs. The CLI provides a new 'list' command that gives an overview on all tombs open, customization of mount options (opening a tomb read-only is now supported), and fancy colored messages.

It offers unlimited nested groups, unlimited POP3/IMAP profiles, quotas, an integrated address book, a calendar with multiple reminders and event repetitions, a file manager with an integrated WebDAV server, the ability to send faxes, SMS support (which lets you send SMS, get reminded of events via SMS, and get email notification via SMS), a bookmark manager, themes, and multilingual support. It uses either sendmail or SMTP to send email, and can handle MIME and SSL connections. Support for IDN (Internationalized Domain Names) is included. Through its modular design, it's easy to add completely new features as modules, which can be plugged into the system.
Release Notes: This build fixes some PHP warnings (sloppy code). It improves the handling of non-UTF-8 HTML mail forwarded as HTML and the link recognition in plain text email.
pyisbn is a module for working with various book identification numbers. It includes functions for conversion, verification, and generation of checksums. It also includes basic classes for representing ISBNs as objects.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release with packaging clean up and new documentation.

Users of the FUN Cube dongle on Win32 and K3 users on all platforms are urged to upgrade to this version.
Liberté Linux is a secure, reliable, lightweight, and easy to use Gentoo-based live USB Linux distribution intended as a communication aid in hostile environments. It installs as a regular directory on a USB/SD key, and after a single-click setup, boots on any desktop computer or laptop. The Internet connection is then used to set up a Tor circuit, which handles all network communication. During first boot, a unique email ID is generated from fingerprints of user's certificate and Tor hidden service key. This persistent ID allows one to stealthily communicate with other Liberté users. The distribution includes image and document processing applications, and can function as a secure Web browsing platform. For developers, Liberté can also serve as a robust framework for mastering Gentoo-based live USBs/CDs. The build process is fully automated with incremental build support, and is more mature and reliable than most of Gentoo's own outdated live CD tools.
Release Notes: Secure and anonymous email-like communication was implemented. XChat, Pidgin, FBReader, OpenSSH client, and H.264 video / Speex audio encoding were added. Linux kernel 2.6.37 with SquashFS LZMA is used. Startup and shutdown were made faster using custom initramfs and parallel OpenRC. Haveged serves as a reliable entropy source, and NTP is disabled in favor of exclusive HTP over Tor. Kexec-based boot wipes RAM, even when triggered by boot media removal. KMS- and VESA-dependent boots have been separated, fixing video card issues. The X server locks the screen when a laptop's lid is closed, with improved lock robustness.
BpmDj is a program that can be used by a DJ. It plays MP3 and Ogg files. It has a fully automatic BPM counter. It can determine the sound color. It has a full fledged Qt based interface. It will help you manage a large amount of songs. It can help in creating playlists and has proven to be very robust. The program also allows offline automatic mixing and contains a wavelet based beat graph analyzer to visualize audio tracks.
Release Notes: Different playrates per soundcard are now allowed. Modifications to the taglist no longer can lead to a program crash. ALSA latency issues no longer lead the program to crash when setting a cue.
Stella is a freely distributed multi-platform Atari 2600 VCS emulator. Since its original release, Stella has been ported to many diverse operating systems. Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows are currently supported in the mainline codebase.

Page Number Saver (PNS) is an application designed to help book or e-book readers save their page numbers. It does this with an interactive console-based menu. The future of the project from this point is first a simple GUI, then a customized one, then version 1.0 will be a PDF reader.
Release Notes: The program now has an ability to open the PDF straight to the given page number if the user has Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Armadillo is a C++ linear algebra library (matrix maths) aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use. The API is deliberately similar to Matlab's. Integer, floating point, and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS numerics libraries. A delayed evaluation approach, based on template meta-programming, is used (during compile time) to combine several operations into one and reduce or eliminate the need for temporaries.
Release Notes: This release has fixes for regressions as well as stricter size checking for row and column vectors.
PHPLOT is a PHP graphics class for creating charts and plots. It works with PHP5 (but older versions can use PHP4). PHPlot uses the PHP GD extension to produce PNG, GIF, or JPEG images. TrueType fonts (TTF) are optional, or built-in GD fonts can be used. The available plot types are: area, bars, line/points, lines, pie, points, squared, stacked-bars, and thin bar-line. Labels, tick marks, plot legend, X/Y axes, and more are all configurable. Images can be imported as a background, multiple graphs can be drawn on one image, and images can be saved to disk or returned to a browser.
Release Notes: This release contains new features for controlling legend position and appearance, and a new way to control tick marks and grid lines. The PHPlot Reference Manual has been updated with descriptions and examples of the new functions.
