XCC is a tool for building XML format parsers. One way to describe what XCC does is by analogy with a generic parser generator, e.g. yacc or bison. Yacc needs a lexical analyzer to function properly, and that lexical analyzer is usually built with (f)lex. In the XML world, there are a few packages which fill in the role of lex (expat and libxml are the most known), but the high-level grammar parsing is usually done by a hand-written code; writing such a parser is a tedious and error-prone task. XCC was created to help developers in writing reliable easy-to-understood parsers for handling complex XML-based grammars.
Release Notes: xcc_abort() was added to the API.
File is a utility that classifies arbitrary files of any type mainly by their contents. It is considered standard on most Unix distributions. It can output either human-readable concise descriptions or MIME types for machine handling.
Release Notes: The Python bindings were updated and fixed. Magic support for OCF (EPUB) files and for lrzip files was added. Zip file magic was adapted for files with unsupported special types. Many more magic updates and fixes were made. Several minor bugs were fixed.

Release Notes: This release fixes issues with deprecated Python modules, a problem with the Traditional Chinese translation, and a problem with starting GNOME Commander as root. It also adds support for backward/forward mouse buttons.
Ora2Pg is a Perl module to export an Oracle database schema to a PostgreSQL compatible schema. It connects your Oracle database, extracts its structure, and generates an SQL script that you can load into your PostgreSQL database. It dumps the database schema (tables, views, sequences, indexes, grants) with primary, unique, and foreign keys into PostgreSQL syntax without editing the SQL code generated. It also dump Oracle data into PostgreSQL DB as online process or into a file. You can choose what columns can be exported for each table.
Release Notes: This release added more parser rewriting, especially for package bodies and user defined types. There is also a new extract type for retrieving Oracle encoding, a new configuration directive, and several bugfixes.
Ashd is an HTTP server that follows standard Unix philosophy for modularity. Instead of being a monolithic program with loadable modules, as most other HTTP servers seem to be, Ashd is simply a collection of much simpler programs, passing HTTP requests to each other using a simple protocol. The model also allows such handler programs to persist properly, so that, for example, session data can be kept in memory, connections to back-end services can be kept open, and so on.
Release Notes: Various bugfixes, protocol compliance fixes, tunings, documentation improvements, and other minor improvements.
