Release Notes: Updated to build using ccrtp 2.x and GNU uCommon 5.x libraries.
Common C++ RTP is an experimental threadsafe RTP stack for use with Common C++. It uses a service thread to both schedule outgoing packets and organize arriving packets. Queued lists of packets are maintained both for sending and receiving, and packet payloads can be mixed such as for passing RTP telephony events. Recent builds of GNU ccRTP are also available for building handheld softphone clients using Open Embedded.
Release Notes: This release builds using GNU uCommon as its required base library. It also includes a fix for srtp padding and for compiling with g++ 4.6.
UCommon is a lightweight C++ library to facilitate using C++ design patterns even for very deeply embedded applications, such as for systems using uClibc along with POSIX threading support. For this reason, UCommon disables language features that consume memory or introduce runtime overhead. UCommon introduces some design patterns from Objective-C, such as reference counted objects, memory pools, and smart pointers. UCommon introduces some new concepts for handling of thread locking and synchronization.
Release Notes: Starting with version 5 of GNU uCommon, inheritability of ucommon thread classes were extended, and what used to be known separately as GNU Common C++ is now merged into and included as part of the ucommon package, using ucommon core classes. GNU uCommon is now also required to support GNU CCRTP (and libzrtpcpp) version 2.0 and later. The latest release of ucommon (5.0.2) adds support for OpenSSL FIPS compliance and a portable cryptographic archiver.
Cego implements a relational and transactional database system with support for the SQL query language. The current release contains the most common database features for basic table manipulation and data retrieval. Indexes, foreign keys, views, and stored procedures are also implemented. Future releases (2.0 and above) will support a multi-node database concept with log file shipping for an automatic database application failover.
Release Notes: This release adds a compile on demand strategy for views and procedures.
CheckApp will serve as a basis for a free (as in freedom and as in beer) social network, so that anyone will be able to check out and modify the code, or deploy this application in their own server. It will also try to minimize the usage of personal information, so there would be no privacy problems.
Release Notes: This is the very first release of this project. Although it has been tested a lot, you may consider this a beta release. It provides the main features of CheckApp: user management, application management, check applications, write and edit comments, and even more features.
