comirror is a program that reads a Web comic or image gallery and saves the images it finds to the current working directory. It is especially useful for mirroring Web comics so they can be read offline.
Release Notes: Initial release. Use comirror-setup with comic URLs to set up the working directory, then run comirror to start downloading. The internal logic is still quite fragile, so it's not guaranteed to work for every site. But so far the results are good.

It informs you in realtime about the status of your Nagios, Icinga, Opsview, Ninja, Check_MK/Multisite, Centreon, or Thruk-monitored network. It alerts you with sound and visual notification. Failed hosts and services are easy to connect with by SSH, RDP, and VNC. Custom actions can be run on certain events. It works best with GNOME, but also with KDE, Mac OS X, and Windows.
Release Notes: This release comes with improved full Ninja support. A rewritten filtering mechanism allows new features like displaying icons in status overview popup indicating the states "acknowledged" and "scheduled downtime" for hosts and services. An added option allows playing notification sounds more than once. Nagstamon now uses BeautifulSoup instead of LXML and GTK UI Builder instead of glade to get rid of some dependencies.

Octave daemon is a network daemon for GNU Octave, implemented in PHP. The package also contains a PHP client for connecting to the daemon. Native PHP applications can also use the connector class to run ad hoc Octave instances, circumventing the daemon altogether (which can be useful for development or small projects).
Release Notes: This is the first alpha version. This should be stable enough for testing by parties who are not necessarily interested in developing this package.

"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: A regression in subsequent image updates with gconf and xfconf was fixed. Cleanup of temporary files was added.

Observium has grown out of a lack of easy to use NMSes. It is intended to provide a more navigable interface to the health and performance of your network. Its design goals include collecting as much historical data about devices as possible, being completely autodiscovered with little or no manual intervention, and having a very intuitive interface.
Release Notes: Poller and discovery flexibility were improved. Improvements and fixes were made to the Web GUI. Support was added for a number of new OSes and devices such as VMWare ESX and Force 10. Support was added for many new services and MIBs such as OSPF, CEF Statistics, and VPN statistics for ASA. Many changes were made to the underlying codebase to make it easier for people to provide patches and add features.
Pagekite is software to make servers on "localhost" visible to the wider Internet. It can be used by Web developers to show off their works in progress to clients or colleagues, embedded developers who need direct access to devices in the field, or as an alternative to dynamic DNS for individuals/hobbyists who would rather host their own content than rely on 3rd party hosting. It creates and maintains a tunnel between your server on localhost and a remote "front-end" (a reverse proxy). Only the front-end has to have a visible IP address; the server itself can reside on a heavily firewalled computer, a mobile device, or even an anonymous node on the Tor network.
Release Notes: This release adds a built-in HTTP server for instantly making a directory of static files on localhost into a publicly visible Web site. The command-line interface was also improved and there is a text-mode wizard for creating new "pagekites".
libjc is a framework for event-driven development in C. Programs that use it can perform an arbitrary number of operations simultaneously and in the background, and later wait for some or all of them to complete. The source package includes the core library along with a few objects, each of which is able to perform a set of related operations. This framework consumes significantly less memory than standard libraries, and it scales well to multiprocessor systems.
Release Notes: The X11 client now supports SEND_EVENT requests. The configuration library can parse command line arguments. A clone of the xev program was added to test and demonstrate usage of the X11 client. Other test programs were also added.
