Screenshot

jmxtrans is effectively the missing connector between JMX and whatever logging or graphing package that you can dream up. jmxtrans is very powerful tool that reads JSON configuration files specifying servers/ports and JMX domains/attributes and then outputs the data in whatever format you want via special "Writer" objects that you can code up yourself. It does this with a very efficient engine design that will scale to querying literally thousands of machines. The core engine is pretty solid and writers are included for cacti/rrdtool, graphite, and stdout.

Release Notes: This release adds caching of Socket connections to Graphite. It adds the KeyOutWriter. It adds Lifecycle events to OutputWriters. There are many internal fixes that improve the stability of the code. There is better logging output.

As well as using the graphical interface to configure alarms, you can use the command line, and there is a D-Bus/DCOP interface for other applications.

Release Notes: This release adds a new option for reminders after the main alarm. Another new option will wake the system from suspend when an alarm triggers. A new command line option can disable alarm monitoring at startup. The display of left hand buttons in time spinboxes in Oxygen style has been fixed.

Download No website 23 Jun 14:53 cwwav 0.1A

Screenshot

cwwav takes one or more text files (or text read from standard input) and converts the text into an audio file (wav or mp3) containing the CW (Morse code) representation of the text. It's useful for generating practice files if you are learning CW and want to practice by listening to text. It's a very simple program but it is designed to do what it does well. That is, it is designed to produce good sounding CW output files, with proper timing and comfortable envelope to avoid keyclicks and to make the CW softer.

Release Notes: This is the very first public alpha release, but it works quite well for what is implemented.

Screenshot

Armadillo is a C++ linear algebra library (matrix maths) aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use. The API is deliberately similar to Matlab's. Integer, floating point, and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS numerics libraries. A delayed evaluation approach, based on template meta-programming, is used (during compile time) to combine several operations into one and reduce or eliminate the need for temporaries.

Release Notes: This release adds functionality for loading and saving of matrices as CSV text files. It also changes the behavior of decomposition functions, which now throw exceptions when failures are detected.

Screenshot

GNU libmicrohttpd is a small C library for embedding HTTP server functionality into other applications. It is reentrant, fast, supports HTTP 1.1, and permits listening on multiple ports. The API is simple and still powerful enough to allow programmers to use the entire HTTP feature set. SSL/TLS support is available as an option.

Avatar

Release Notes: This release fixes a few bugs, such as a data race on closing connections, not forcing connections to close if the server sends "Connection: close", a tiny memory leak in TLS initialization, and a busy-waiting loop for up to 1s upon connection timeout. This release also significantly improves performance by eliminating the listen socket from poll/select to significantly reduce wake-ups for multi-threaded mode, using strtoul instead of sscanf to reduce binary size on embedded systems, reducing connection cleanup cost from O(n) to O(1), and eliminating an unnecessary O(n) call in threaded mode.

Download Website 23 Jun 13:47 grep 2.9

Screenshot

GNU grep is based on a fast lazy-state deterministic matcher (about twice as fast as stock Unix egrep) hybridized with a Boyer-Moore-Gosper search for a fixed string that eliminates impossible text from being considered by the full regexp matcher without necessarily having to look at every character. The result is typically many times faster than Unix grep or egrep.

Avatar

Release Notes: grep's interpretation of range expression is now more consistent with that of other tools. The exit status on memory allocation failure was fixed. "grep -P" no longer aborts when PCRE's backtracking limit is exceeded. Handling of regular expressions that match multibyte characters in brackets was made faster. Other minor bugs were fixed.

Release Notes: This maintenance release includes resolutions for many regression issues as well as exceptions being thrown during presentation access, PDFs generation, and slide cloning for both PPT and PPTX. The bullet rendering issue has been remedied, and the compatibility support for working with PowerPoint 2010 presentations has also been enhanced. The requirement of using Aspose.Metafiles for Java has also been removed in this release if a presentation has WMF or EMF file contents.

No download Website 23 Jun 13:43 filterunit 1.1.0

Screenshot

filterunit allows unit tests to be devised for command line programs that use files as input and output. Classic Unix filters are a typical example. filterunit runs the program under test with the specified input files and compares the actual results with the expected results.

Release Notes: The configuration option "metaExtension" allows you to use meta configuration files in expected trees. A meta configuration file describes meta features of an expected file beyond its content. Examples for meta features are the type of the file system object or its timestamp.

Download Website 23 Jun 13:40 spectrwm 0.9.32

Screenshot

spectrwm is a minimalistic tiling window manager that tries to stay out of the way so that valuable screen real estate can be used for much more important stuff. It has sane defaults and does not require one to learn a language to do any configuration. It was written by hackers for hackers and it strives to be small, compact, and fast.

Avatar

Release Notes: A crash when apps don't set _NET_WM_PID was fixed and scrotwm can work around this lack to find out the PID anyway. This is a critical fix and users should upgrade as soon as possible.

No download Website 23 Jun 08:21 MyMediaLite 1.03

Screenshot

MyMediaLite is a lightweight, multi-purpose library of recommender system algorithms. It addresses the two most common scenarios in collaborative filtering: rating prediction (e.g. on a scale of 1 to 5 stars), and item prediction from implicit feedback (e.g. from clicks or purchase actions). It contains dozens of recommender engines, including state-of-the-art matrix factorization methods. It also supports real-time updates to the recommender engines, storing engines to disk and reloading them again, and several evaluation measures to compare the accuracy of different recommender system methods. Three command-line programs that offer most of the functionality contained in the library are included.

Release Notes: This release includes a prototype SOAP Web service for rating prediction. It is planned that most of MyMediaLite's functionality will be offered using RESTful services in the future. New recommenders were added: FactorWiseMatrixFactorization and BiasMatrixFactorizationMAE. The library (and the command-line tools) now offer an online evaluation protocol that uses incremental updates. This may be the last version to support Mono 2.6.
