Of course you can select viewports and windows, and also move or raise/lower the latter.
Release Notes: Updated for new install paths in Sawfish 1.8.1, allowing rpm-build to modify CFLAGS while building.
Sawfish (the window manager formerly known as Sawmill) is an extensible window manager using a Lisp-based extension language. All window decorations are configurable and all user-interface policy is controlled through the language. Its aim is to manage windows in the most flexible and attractive manner possible. As such it does not implement desktop backgrounds, application docks, or other things that may be achieved through separate applications. Sawfish is mostly GNOME-compliant; almost all configuration may be made through a graphical interface.
Release Notes: This release improves the Edge-Actions configuration infrastructure, makes it fully deactivatible, and updates its documentation. It removes unneeded classes from command definitons, improves .desktop files, fixes uninstalling Sawfish, and improves Debian packaging scripts (broken at the moment). The following translations were updated: German, Spanish, Czech, Slovenian, and Malay.
rep-gtk is a language-binding between GTK+/GDK and librep. Basic GLib and ATK bindings are included, too. The bindings for outdated, deprecated libraries (libgnome, libgnomeui, libgnomecanvas, and libglade) have been dropped. In favor of libglade, GTKBuilder is supported.
Release Notes: Updated installation paths for changes in librep 0.92.0. Improved Makefile and Debian packaging scripts. Unified gtk and gtk-types modules.
Librep is a shared library implementing a Lisp dialect that is lightweight, reasonably fast, and highly extensible. It contains an interpreter, byte-code compiler, and virtual machine. Applications may use the interpreter as an extension language, or it may be used for standalone scripts. Rep was originally inspired by Emacs Lisp. However one of the main deficiencies of elisp--the reliance on dynamic scope--has been removed. Also, rep only has a single namespace for symbols.
Release Notes: For extra modules, now shared objects are loaded rather than libtoo archives. The architecture and version have been removed from installation paths, and the soname bumped to 16.0.0, thus all packages linking against librep need to be rebuilt. Improved Debian packaging scripts.

"aura" is a desktop (X root window) background setter. It picks images randomly from specified paths, skipping those that are too small or have inappropriate aspect ratios, and rescales them by cropping solid margins, resizing with cubic interpolation and then the liquid rescale algorithm to fit the desktop with as little quality loss as possible. Images are labelled in the corner using embedded tags. It can changes images on a timed basis or when triggered by SIGHUP or the CLI, and tracks previous and blacklisted images.
Release Notes: Compatibility with python-2.6 and pyexiv2-1.3 (still used on older distributions, like Ubuntu Lucid) was added. Gnome-friendly background setting via gconf was added.
Giada is a minimal, hardcore audio tool for DJs and live performers. Just pick your sample, drop it in any channel, and start the show by using this tiny piece of software as a loop machine, drum machine, sequencer, live sampler, or effect (VST) host. Giada aims to be a compact and portable virtual device for production use and live sets.
Release Notes: This version introduces a new open-source patch system, a large number of audio/interface improvements, and several bugfixes.
FusionInventory for GLPI is an extension (plug-in) of GLPI allowing a direct connection with FusionInventory's agents. It provides discovery of the equipment connected to the network, equipment interrogation (inventory) through SNMP, hardware and software inventory of the computer on which an agent is installed, and computer wake-on-LAN. The inventory and wake on LAN module are integrated into the agent. It features an HTTP(S) dialog between the plug-in and agent, can wake the agent from a distance, and allows management of waiting actions (inventory, network discovery, wake on LAN, etc.). It supports SNMP version 1, 2c, and 3, and mapping between SNMP's OID field and GLPI. It can get information from switches and their ports (internal MAC, port speed, number of errors, connection status), printer information, and the state of printer cartridges.
Release Notes: This version is a corrective release that fixes very many bugs regarding inventory and netdiscovery actions. The fields lock system was improved. Data checking of computers was integrated. This version is for GLPI 0.78.x.

sparseLM is a software package for efficiently solving arbitrarily sparse non-linear least squares problems. It offers a generic implementation of the Levenberg - Marquardt optimization algorithm on top of a variety of sparse direct solvers, thus being applicable to problems with arbitrary sparseness. sparseLM accepts sparse Jacobians encoded in either compressed row storage (CRS) or compressed column storage (CCS, aka Harwell-Boeing) format. It is also possible to supply it just with the Jacobian's sparsity pattern and have its values be numerically approximated using finite differences, or even instruct it to attempt the automatic detection of the sparsity pattern corresponding to the Jacobian of the function to be minimized. Note that for dense non-linear least squares problems, project levmar is more appropriate.
Release Notes: Various parts of the code were rewritten and cleaned up. Support was added to the matlab MEX interface for expicitly specifying the sparsity structure of an analytic Jacobian.
