KEDR is a framework to facilitate dynamic analysis of kernel modules in Linux ("KEDR" is an acronym for "KErnel-mode Drivers in Runtime"). KEDR allows you to intercept the calls that a kernel module makes to the functions exported by other modules and by the kernel proper. The tools provided by the framework can record the arguments and return values of these functions to a trace, perform fault simulation according to user-defined scenarios, and check the kernel modules for memory leaks and some other kinds of problems. Custom data collection and analysis tools for the Linux kernel can also be built on top of KEDR framework.
Release Notes: Handling of intercepted function calls has been revisited to allow doing several kinds of analysis at the same time. The components responsible for fault simulation are now decoupled from call monitoring facilities. Several enhancements and fixes have been applied to the trace capturing utility. The stack trace-related API has been revisited and simplified. Handling of allocations and frees in the memory leak detector is now deferred via a work queue. This allows you to significantly reduce the time spent with locks held.

The following barcode symbologies are supported: Codabar, Code11, EAN128, EAN14, SSCC18, Code128, Code39Extended, Code39Standard, UPCA, EAN13, EAN8, ITF14, Interleaved2of5, MSI, Patch, UPCE, Bookland, and Standard2of5.
upstart is a replacement for the /sbin/init daemon that handles starting of tasks and services during boot, stopping them during shutdown, and supervising them while the system is running.
Release Notes: A plethora of new features and updates were added, including all those from Ubuntu Natty: socket bridge, user session support, chroot support, an updated bash completion script, an updated vim syntax script, the initctl2dot script to convert initctl(8) output to GraphViz dot syntax, new "check-config" and "show-config" initctl commands, new init and initctl command-line options, a new "kill signal" stanza, support for the oom_score_adj procfs API, and improved POSIX compliance when running shell scripts.
AC3D is a well established, fully featured 3D modeling package. It features an easy to use interface, powerful polygon and vertex editing, a UV mapper, 2D/3D text, and subdivision surfaces. It supports many 3D file formats.
Release Notes: The texture coordinate editor was enhanced. A divide loop was added. Other miscellaneous changes were made.
Asterisell is a Web application for rating, showing to customers, and billing of Asterisk VoIP calls.
Release Notes: Filters are now easier to use. A custom login page can be provided for each reseller. New rating methods were added. Minor bugfixes and improvements were made.
Elmedia Player is media player for Mac. It is also an advanced player of Flash movies and video. It supports playback of multiple popular formats in the free version and can download online videos from multiple Web sites in the Pro version, including streaming videos (over RTMP) and videos embedded via HTML5. Elmedia Player features a built-in Web browser, so you can browse through a Web site and watch online media without leaving the application. Elmedia Player can manage media files with its convenient media library, usual and smart playlists, and more.
Release Notes: Streaming videos transferred over plain RTMP can now be captured. Blocking of pop-up windows can now be managed from Elmedia's main menu.
EDFlib is a programming library for C and C++ for reading and writing EDF, EDF+, BDF, and BDF+ files.
Release Notes: A bug that prevented opening large files (>2.1GB) on a Mac was solved.
AutoArchive is a utility to help create backups more easily. The idea of the program is that all essential information for creating a backup is in a single file. It can use ‘tar’ for creating archives, has a command line interface, and supports incremental backups.
Release Notes: Automatic backup level restarting is now supported. An internal tar implementation that is independent of external tools was added. The possibility of specifying an archive's destination directory was added. Handling of tar's messages was improved. Other small improvements and fixes were made.
mdadm is a tool for creating, maintaining, and monitoring Linux "md" device arrays, also known as Software RAID.
Release Notes: Stability fixes were made. IMSM metadata reshape (OnLine Capacity Expansion) is no longer experimental. The "--grow --size" options can have "--assume-clean" to suppress extra resync. RAID0 chunk size no longer has to be a power of 2.
eMount is a free system administrator tool that can mount, encrypt, and manage disk image files and physical disk drives. It relies on cryptsetup, which implements the LUKS disk encryption specification.
Release Notes: Automount and Eject All have been added to automatically mount volumes when eMount starts and to unmount all volumes at once. The option to empty a volume's trash on eject has been added. Minor bugs have been fixed.
HDF (Hierarchical Data Format) is a general purpose library and file format for storing scientific data. It arranges data into datasets (multidimensional arrays) and groups (a structure for organizing objects).
Release Notes: The ability to cache files opened through external links was added to the library. Shared C++ and High Level libraries can now be built on AIX. The library now allows a dataspace dimension size to be zero. The h5copy utility was fixed to enable copying an object into the same HDF5 file. A few fixes were made to the High Level Fortran APIs. Speedups were done to some of the utilities.
Viking is a GTK2-based GPS data editor and viewer. It can download and show OpenStreetMaps, Terraserver, and other maps, import and draw tracks and waypoints over them, add coordinate lines, make new tracks and waypoints, hide different things, and more. It uses a hierarchical layering system to organize GPS data, maps, and other layer types with spatial data (such as coordinate lines).
Release Notes: Minor bugs were fixed.
Tiny Core Linux is a very small (10 MB) minimal Linux desktop. It is based on the Linux 3.0 kernel, Busybox, Tiny X, and Fltk. The core runs entirely in RAM and boots very quickly. The user has complete control over which applications and/or additional hardware to have supported, be it for a desktop, a nettop, an appliance, or server, selectable from the online repository.
Release Notes: The theme for this version is improved integrity and interoperability. NTFS read support and seamless NTFS read-write support are now offered via extension or installation options. Integrity was improved with better warning messages to prevent misuse of unsupported file systems. Starter Packs were also added. They provides all the tools typically needed to install and get connected. Finally, multicore.iso is now available, combining multiple boot images together with starter packs. This bootable CD image provides the easiest way yet to install, get connected, and get online.
MUSCLE (Multi User Server Client Linking Environment) is an N-way messaging server and networking API. It includes client-side networking APIs for various languages, including C, C++, C#, Delphi, Java, and Python. MUSCLE lets programs communicate over a network via streams of serialized Message objects. The included server program ("muscled") lets its clients message each other and store information in its server-side hierarchical database. The database supports flexible queries via hierarchical wildcarding, and "live" updates via a subscription mechanism.
Release Notes: This version adds a utility class for writing out .tar files, rewrites the Hashtable class to avoid "strict aliasing" warnings under g++ 4.4.0 and higher, and also rewrites the String, Ref, and DataNode classes to take up less memory per instance.
