vnStat is a console-based network traffic monitor that keeps a log of hourly, daily, and monthly network traffic for the selected interface(s). It uses the network interface statistics provided by the kernel as information source. This means that vnStat won't actually be sniffing any traffic, and also ensures light use of system resources.
Release Notes: This release fixes a miscalculated memory allocation when creating interface list from /sys/class/net when /proc/net/dev wasn't available, which in turn could crash the daemon. Handling of the -HUP signal in the daemon has been corrected to properly update the database cache. The daemon now automatically creates databases for available interfaces if no databases are found during startup instead of requiring user interaction.

LON-CAPA (The LearningOnline Network with CAPA) is a learning content and course management system. It offers an underlying shared content pool from which instructors across departmental and institutional boundaries can assemble granular learning content for their courses. It has strong assessment capabilities, both formative (homework and in-class using wireless PDAs) and summative (online and bubblesheet exams), with a one-source multiple-target strategy for the content. It offers students portfolio space in which they can stage materials for submission to projects, and provides a number of tools for synchronous and asynchronous student-student and student-faculty communication. LON-CAPA scales well with number of students, as load-balancing is possible across the whole network of servers at participating institutions.

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: The -f option is allowed. Duplication of Server/Query in JSON files is removed.

MeTA1 is a modularized message transfer agent (MTA) consisting of five (or more) persistent processes, four of which are multi-threaded. A queue manager controls SMTP servers and SMTP clients to receive and send email messages, an address resolver provides lookups in various maps (including DNS) for mail routing, and a main control program starts the other processes and watches over their execution. The queue manager organizes the flow of messages through the system and provides measures to avoid overloading the local or remote systems by implementing a central control instance. It is simple to configure using a C-like syntax and is secure and efficient.
Release Notes: Due to enhancements for adaptive timeouts and easier configuration modifications, there are some changes in the DEFEDB format and the configuration of connection_limits.

As of fall 2009, Traffic Server is an Open Source project, and in April 2010 the Apache Traffic Server was promoted to a top-level project of the ASF.
Release Notes: Both feature improvements and stability improvements were made. Literally hundreds of issues were closed since the last freshmeat announcement. All users of ATS are urged to upgrade to this release as soon as possible.
Mandriva is an RPM-based Linux distribtion. It excels at usability and simplicity, features thoroughly preconfigured KDE and GNOME desktops, and includes cool tools like supermount (transparent access to removable media) and DiskDrake (a full-featured graphical hard-drive partitioner). Unlike former versions, Mandriva is not a tuned-up Red Hat, but a very mature Linux distribution on its own.
