Download Website 30 May 21:17 crpcut 1.3.1

Screenshot

crpcut is the Compartmented Robust Posix C++ Unit Test system. crpcut (pronounced "Crap Cut") runs all test cases in their own process and their own working directory, which makes it perfectly normal to test that asserts do trap, and the test suite continues even in the event of an unexpected SIGSEGV. By using the C++11 features long available in GCC, the tests are extremely easy to write.

Screenshot

Property Binder is a Java library that provides typed access to entries in properties files. It offers such access by allowing a programmer to provide it a Java interface whose methods represent the keys of the properties file. The methods can be annotated to indicate what property the method represents, what default value(s) it should assume if the property is not present, and what pattern separates the individual values of multi-valued properties.

Release Notes: Property Binder annotations are now marked as @Documented.

Screenshot

Sendmail is a Mail Transfer Agent, which is the program that moves mail from one machine to another. Sendmail implements a general internetwork mail routing facility, featuring aliasing and forwarding, automatic routing to network gateways, and flexible configuration.

Release Notes: SMTP extensions are no longer cached across connections, as the cache is based on hostname, which may not be a unique identifier for a server, i.e. different machines may have the same hostname but provide different SMTP extensions. Out-of-bounds access is avoided in case a resolver reply for a DNS map lookup returns a size larger than 1K. The interrupt signal handler has been cleaned up to avoid invoking functions that are not signal-safe. At most, two AUTH lines are read from a server to avoid a memory exhaustion DoS attack against the client.

Screenshot

Jolokia is a fresh way of accessing JMX MBeans remotely. It is different from JSR-160 connectors, as it is an agent based approach that uses JSON over HTTP for its communication. It provides new features for JMX remoting: bulk requests allow for multiple JMX operations with a single remote server roundtrip, there is a fine-grained security mechanism for restricting JMX access on specific JMX operations, JSR-160 proxy mode, and history tracking, to name a few. Jolokia's origins are in jmx4perl. Client bindings in addition to Perl have already been added, and more are planned.

Release Notes: This minor release adds SSL functionality to the JVM JDK agent and speeds up the Jolokia 'list' command considerably. Some minor bugs are fixed.

Download Website 30 May 14:33 blindRSS 0.7

Screenshot

blindRSS is a very simple browser-operated RSS reader. You can click through the feeds in a sidebar, use the (hopefully self-explanatory) icons next to them to manipulate them, and do all the other stuff a RSS reader should do. It's programmed so that the feeds are reread by a cronjob or daemon, while as much functionality as possible is done within the client. Thus, the server only serves the data, not the markup.

Avatar

Release Notes: blindRSS got a new layout based on Tidy Blog found on oswd.org. A search function was implemented. Support for filters was prepared. The option to display news items in an iframe directly on the blindRSS main content area was added.

Download Website 30 May 14:30 cdcat 1.3

Screenshot

The cdcat is a graphical (Qt based) multi-platform catalog program that scans the directories/drives you want and memorizes the filesystem (including the tags of MP3s) and stores it in a small file. The database is stored in a gzipped XML format, so you can hack it, or use it if necessary. Cdcat can store the contents of some specified files up to a size limit if you want (for example: *.nfo).

Release Notes: Several bugs regarding CSV/HTML export have been fixed. Trailing line endings and spaces in comments are now stripped. Also, the line endings in comments will no longer be converted to "#". The CSV import from advanced disk catalog got an improved parser. The add dialog for new media now has keyboard accelerators for quicker access. The tree on left can now be sorted to reverse order. The parsing of size values from XML has been fixed.

No download Website 30 May 13:44 gedit-pair-char-autocomplete 1.0.5

Screenshot

gedit-pair-char-autocomplete is a gedit plugin that automatically inserts a closing parenthesis ) whenever an opening parenthesis ( is typed. The default paired characters are (), [], {}, "", '', and ``. The plugin is smart enough to automatically overwrite existing closing brackets when appropriate. Selecting a block of text and typing an opening parenthesis or quote character will enclose the selection in quotes or parentheses.

Release Notes: The plugin now deletes a pair character ahead of the cursor when the matching character preceding the cursor is deleted. The plugin now moves a closing pair character to a line on its own and moves the cursor to a new line after an opening pair character is followed by a return.

Download Website 30 May 13:27 ZoneMinder 1.24.4

Screenshot

ZoneMinder is a suite of applications intended for use in video camera security applications, including theft prevention and child or family member monitoring. It supports capture, analysis, recording, and monitoring of video data coming from one or more video or network cameras attached to a Linux system. It also features a user-friendly Web interface which allows viewing, archival, review, and deletion of images and movies captured by the cameras. The image analysis system is highly configurable, permitting retention of specific events, while eliminating false positives. ZoneMinder supports both directly connected and network cameras and is built around the definition of a set of individual 'zones' of varying sensitivity and functionality for each camera. This allows the elimination of regions which should be ignored or the definition of areas which will alarm if various thresholds are exceeded in conjunction with other zones. All management, control, and other functions are supported through the Web interface.

Release Notes: This release primarily addresses a number of system and configuration issues that arose from 1.24.3, but also includes significant improvements to version management and upgrades.

Download No website 30 May 13:26 LMF - Linked Media Framework 2.0rc2

Screenshot

The Linked Media Framework is an easy-to-set-up server application that bundles central Semantic Web technologies to offer advanced services. The Linked Media Framework consists of LMF Core and LMF Modules. The core component of the Linked Media Framework is a Linked Data Server that allows you to expose data following the Linked Data Principles. The Linked Data Server implemented as part of the LMF goes beyond the Linked Data principles by extending them with Linked Data Updates and by integrating management of metadata and content and making both accessible in a uniform way. Its extensions are described in more detail in LinkedMediaPrinciples. In addition to the Linked Data Server, the LMF Core also offers a highly configurable Semantic Search service and a SPARQL endpoint. Setting up and using the Semantic Search component is described in SemanticSearch. Accessing the SPARQL endpoint is described in SPARQLEndpoint. Whereas the extension of the Linked Data principles is already conceptually well-described, work is proceeding on a proper specification and extension of Semantic Search and SPARQL endpoint for Linked Data servers.

Release Notes: This release fixes a number of bugs, increases reliability and stability, and uses multithreading for improved performance when doing large imports.

Screenshot

NoMachine NX is a fast terminal server and desktop virtualization system based on the X11 protocol. NX is an order of magnitude faster than VNC or X11 and can run on bandwidth as narrow as 10 kBit/sec. In addition, NX translates and embeds the MS Windows Terminal Server and VNC protocols into X/NX, enabling users to compress and accelerate remote Windows and VNC sessions. The NX project provides a suite of libraries and X11 proxying agents implementing efficient compression and optimized transport of X11, SMB, IPP, HTTP, and arbitrary protocols like audio and video over the Internet.

Release Notes: Packages for Linux are now compliant with the new Debian policies and can be installed also on those OSes that don't have libaudio file by default. NX Client for Windows fixes problems with specific keyboard layouts such as Latin-American or Dvorak.
