For users on Linux and Unix, KDE offers a full suite of user workspace applications which allow interaction with these operating systems in a modern, graphical user interface. This includes Plasma Desktop, KDE's innovative and powerful desktop interface. Other workspace applications are included to aid with system configuration, running programs, or interacting with hardware devices. While the fully integrated KDE Workspaces are only available on Linux and Unix, some of these features are available on other platforms. In addition to the workspace, KDE produces a number of key applications such as the Konqueror Web browser, Dolphin file manager, and Kontact, the comprehensive personal information management suite. The list of applications includes many others, including those for education, multimedia, office productivity, networking, games, and much more. Most applications are available on all platforms supported by the KDE Development. KDE also brings to the forefront many innovations for application developers. An entire infrastructure has been designed and implemented to help programmers create robust and comprehensive applications in the most efficient manner, eliminating the complexity and tediousness of creating highly functional applications.
Release Notes: A lot of visual polishing took place with an update to the Oxygen icons, and improved consistency between panel items such as clock and notification areas. The window manager KWin brings a new shadow system and can now run on OpenGL ES supporting hardware, making it better suited for mobile devices. The network management widget is much improved. Navigating through applications and recent files is easier with the addition of breadcrumbs to the Kickoff application launcher. The Kontact groupware solution rejoins the rest of the KDE software, with increased stability and better connection to new services.

Flashrom is a utility for reading, writing, erasing, and verifying flash ROM chips. It's often used to flash BIOS/coreboot/firmware/EFI images. It supports a wide range of DIP32, PLCC32, DIP8, SO8/SOIC8, and TSOP32/40/48 chips, which use various protocols such as LPC, FWH, parallel flash, or SPI. The tool can be used to flash BIOS/firmware images, for example, be it proprietary BIOS images or coreboot (previously known as LinuxBIOS) images. It can also be used to read the current existing BIOS/firmware from a flash chip.

Release Notes: Compatibility has been enhanced with both the Python 2.x and 3.x series. Performance is improved: this release uses 25% less CPU in typical uses. It is mature enough to go to the beta stage.
chan-sccp-b is an extension of the original chan-sccp implementation for the Asterisk soft-PBX. It lets you hook up a Cisco/SCCP Phone to your Asterisk server using the SCCP protocol, which works a lot better than the SIP firmware on the same phone. It provides full phone functionality instead of just a simple SIP channel provider. It offers functionality like shared lines, hotline functionality, guest login, dynamic speeddials, private line automatic ring-down (PLAR), personal softkey configurations, Dundi support, SCCP extended dialplan functions, manager support, and custom device state buttons.

The Mandos system allows computers to have encrypted root file systems and at the same time be capable of remote or unattended reboots. The computers run a small client program in the initial RAM disk environment which will communicate with a server over a network. All network communication is encrypted using TLS. The clients are identified by the server using an OpenPGP key that is unique to each client. The server sends the clients an encrypted password. The encrypted password is decrypted by the clients using the same OpenPGP key, and the password is then used to unlock the root file system.
Release Notes: The client retries all Mandos servers found indefinitely.
FFTW is a fast C FFT library. It includes complex, real, symmetric, multidimensional, and parallel transforms, and can handle arbitrary array sizes efficiently.It is typically faster than other freely available FFT implementations, and is even competitive with vendor-tuned libraries (benchmarks are available at the homepage). To achieve this performance, it uses novel code generation and runtime self optimization techniques (along with many other tricks).
Release Notes: A finalized release of AVX, MPI, and other new features in 3.3-beta1. Compared to the beta, the main change is support for simultaneous installation of OpenMP and POSIX-threads versions.
Simple Continuous Integration Tools (scit) is an automated build and or test system consisting of a set of Perl and expect scripts utilizing common tools that are available for most Unix-like operating systems. The intention is to keep it lightweight while still providing a full set of features. The current version has a command-line and an HTML user interface. It should be possible to make it run on very modest hardware; part of the development and testing has been done on a Nokia N900 phone with both master and slave roles running on the same unit.
Release Notes: A debug switch has been added to the start scripts; without it, the background processes now write a lot less than before to the log files. The stability improvements for the background processes introduced in version 0.19 have been expanded to include the remote slave processes.
hamfax is a QT/X11 application for sending and receiving amateur radio facsimiles. Supported interfaces between computer and transceiver are a sound card and the SCS-PTC.

DJIGZO Email Encryption Gateway is a centrally managed email server that encrypts and decrypts incoming and outgoing email at the gateway level. Djigzo currently supports two encryption standards: S/MIME and PDF encryption. The built-in Data Leak Prevention (DLP) module can be used to prevent certain information from leaving the organization via email. DLP can be configured to filter on credit card numbers, bank account numbers, excessive amounts of email addresses or other personal information in one email message, and more. DJIGZO can be installed on most Linux and Unix based systems. Installation packages are available for Ubuntu, Debian, Red Hat and CentOS. A ready to run virtual appliance for VMware and Hyper-V is available. An add-on for BlackBerry is available.
Release Notes: S/MIME setting: "Always use freshest signing certificate". PDF setting "Only encrypt if mandatory". DLP setting "Quarantine on failed encryption". Quarantined emails can now be "released as-is". Number of rows the grid should show per page can be set. Email in the MTA queue can be filtered. The MTA logs are now by default shown in "raw" format. Support for charsets not supported "out of the box" by Acrobat reader. In S/MIME "strict mode", the message is now always handled by the S/MIME handler.

Owl (Openwall GNU/*/Linux) is a small security-enhanced Linux distribution for servers. Owl also makes a good base system for customized virtual machine images and embedded systems, and Owl live CDs with remote SSH access are good for recovering or installing systems (whether with Owl or not). A single Owl CD includes the full live system, installable packages, the installer program, as well as full source code and the build environment capable of rebuilding the entire system from source. Owl supports multiple architectures (x86, x86-64, SPARC, and Alpha) and offers some compatibility for packages developed for other Linux distributions. The primary approaches to security are proactive source code review, privilege reduction, privilege separation, careful selection of third-party software, safe defaults, and "hardening" to reduce the likelihood of successful exploitation of security flaws.
Release Notes: The Linux kernel has been rebased on OpenVZ's latest stable from their RHEL5-based branch, and support for LSISAS8208ELP disk controllers has been added. strace, Nmap, John the Ripper, iputils, iproute2, and LILO have been updated to new versions. Security fixes and security-relevant enhancements to Owl's packages of the kernel, iptables, RPM, and glibc have been made. New ISO images and OpenVZ container templates have been generated for i686 and x86_64.
