Now the component is ready for use in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
Kernel Mode Linux is a technology which enables the execution of user programs in a kernel mode. In Kernel Mode Linux, user programs can access kernel address space directly. Unlike kernel modules, user programs are executed as ordinary processes (except for their privilege level), so scheduling and paging are performed as usual. Although it seems dangerous, the safety of the kernel can be ensured through such methods as static type checking, software fault isolation, and so forth.
Release Notes: This release has been merged with the 3.0 Linux kernel.
The HAM radio equipment control libraries allow you to write amateur radio equipment control programs for transceivers and antenna rotators which use CAT or similar computer interfaces for control.

This release makes sure the scan is stopped at IC-9000 opening. Alpha support for thd72 get channel data.
digiKam is an advanced digital photo management application that makes importing and organizing digital photos a trivial task. Photos can be organized in albums, which can be sorted chronologically, by directory layout, or by custom collections, and they can be tagged, commented, and rated. digiKam makes use of a fast and robust database to store meta-information, which makes adding and editing comments and tags very reliable. Metadata can also be stored inside pictures using Exif and IPTC. An embedded image editor and a standalone application named showfoto have simple but powerful features for editing your pictures with filters and correction tools.
Release Notes: This version features long awaited face detection and recognition, image versioning support, XMP metadata sidecar files support, big improvements in tagging and marking photos, reversed geo-tagging and many other improvements, including a total of 236 fixed bugs.
FidoCadJ is a very easy-to-use editor, with a library of electrical symbols and footprints (through hole and SMD). Drawings can be exported in several graphic formats (PDF, EPS, PGF for LaTeX, SVG, PNG, and JPEG). Although very simple and not relying on any netlist concept, FidoCadJ can be considered a basic electronic design automation program. FidoCadJ uses a file format containing only UTF-8 text, which is very compact and suited for copying and pasting with newsgroups and forum messages. This determined its success, as it is quite versatile for simple mechanical drawings as well as for electronics.
Release Notes: Some bugs have been corrected. A new library about electrical circuits was added. Handling of a scaling factor while exporting to vector formats was improved. New colors were added for some layers. Users can move elements with the keyboard using [ALT] and the arrow keys. A German translation of the user interface was added.
LLnextgen is a (partial) reimplementation of the LLgen Extended-LL(1) parser generator that is part of the Amsterdam Compiler Kit (ACK). It takes an EBNF-like description of the grammar with associated semantic actions in C as input, and generates C code. The generated code is strict ANSI C, so it should compile with all current C compilers.
Release Notes: This release adds the posibility to include a piece of code at the top of the generated file using %top.
RackTables is a tool to manage tens of racks, hundreds of servers, and thousands of MAC and IP addresses. It will work with a single rack as well. It features a real-life rackspace model, typed rack objects with flexible attribute sets, a tagging system, IP address management ready for NAT, virtual routers and load balancers, accurate network connection handling, a universal search function, a multi-user access model, and an extensible dictionary.

Release Notes: This release is a bugfix release. Among other changes, it includes various fixes to the code and clean-ups that should make it easier in the future for contributors to submit patches against the current code-base.
repomirror is a tool to create local mirrors (partial or complete) of Linux distributions and repositories. It currently support Debian derivatives (both apt and simple repositories) and yum repositories. It has been tested with Debian, Fedora, CentOS, openSUSE, and OpenWrt feeds. It is also able to build repositories for local packages, although currently in a very limited fashion.
Release Notes: The code has undergone very heavy refactoring to make improvements easier and to allow implementation of new features. Among the new features in this version are the inclusion of cached repositories (Debian only) and the split of configurations by means of ".d" directories. There is now a plain yum repository type, and it is possible to mirror Debian installer components. Building of feeds now is able to handle multiple compressions for the "Packages" file. Finally, documentation is now bundled in the package.
Miredo is an implementation of the "Teredo: Tunneling IPv6 over UDP through NATs" proposed Internet standard (RFC 4380). It can serve either as a Teredo client, a stand-alone Teredo relay, or a Teredo server. It is meant to provide IPv6 connectivity to hosts behind NAT devices, most of which do not support IPv6, and not even IPv6-over-IPv4 (including 6to4).
Release Notes: Performance was greatly improved when libJudy is missing or disabled. Compilation on BSD was fixed. Portability problems on ARM were fixed.
MP3 Diags finds problems in MP3 files and helps the user fix many of them. It looks at both the audio part (VBR info, quality, normalization) and the tags containing track information (ID3). It has a tag editor, which can download album information (including cover art) from MusicBrainz and Discogs, as well as paste data from the clipboard. Track information can also be extracted from a file's name. Another component is the file renamer, which can rename files based on the fields in their ID3V2 tag (artist, track number, album, genre, etc.).
Release Notes: The shell integration has been made configurable for Linux from within the program. MP3 Diags now has a "close" button on GNOME 3.
ndisc6 consists of three command line tools (ndisc6, rdisc6, and traceroute6) that perform ICMPv6 Neighbor Discovery, ICMPv6 Router Discovery, and IPv6 tcptraceroute/traceroute respectively. It is primarily meant for IPv6 networking diagnostics and monitoring.
Release Notes: rdisc6 prints RA ND proxy bit and RA prefix flags. rdnssd checks for errors while dropping privileges. Compilation on BSD has been fixed.
Husk is an implementation of the Scheme programming language for the Haskell Platform. Advanced R5RS features are provided, including continuations, hygienic macros, and a full numeric tower.

The ZIP library supports WinZip AES encryption, regular PKZip encryption, Zip64, Unicode filenames, and many other ZIP features.
Release Notes: Key new features include a Silverlight version of the library and support for bzip2 compression. Many bugs were fixed.
Yioop! is a PHP search engine. Yioop! can be configured as either a general purpose search engine for the whole Web or it can be configured to provide search results for a set of URLs or domains. Yioop can crawl pages or can directly index archives such as ARC and WARC. It supports indexing several file formats such as HTML, Atom, PDF, DOC, PPT, RTF, RSS, XML, SVG, PNG, JPG, BMP, GIF, and sitemaps. The Yioop! crawler can be deployed on one or many machines. It supports having one or more to crawl scheduler processes, as well as multiple fetchers and mirrors. Crawling respects robots.txt including Crawl-delay. Yioop! crawls are stored in a Web archive format that is easy to move around. Crawling can be done on one machine and the results deployed elsewhere. Yioop! supports mixing of crawls. Yioop! comes with a search front end that can be localized as desired using a GUI. This GUI supports RTL languages. Management of crawls can also be done using this GUI. Yioop! can be configured in a straightforward manner to make use of file caching or memcache if available.
Release Notes: This version moves Yioop! from using a bag of words index to a positional index. Proximity scores are calculated when a multi-word query is done. The host of an inlink is now also incorporated in a ranking. An indexing plugin architecture has been created to make it easier to customize the crawl process; an example recipe plugin is included. An SEO cache view and improved test query statistics have been added. This version finally includes bug fixes for memcached and bmp handling.
The j661 project provides a generic CDS (or ARINC 661 Server) in order to facilitate the understanding of the ARINC 661 standard, prototype ARINC 661 concepts and architectures, and facilitate the reuse of ARINC 661 specifications and artefacts between projects. The CDS architecture is designed to allow defining the Server behavior to be easily modified or extended. This is achieved by a modular plug-in architecture, allowing customization at runtime without changing anything in the Server core itself.
Release Notes: A graphic corruption regression that could occur in a Windowed window management was fixed. The escaped Strings editor in the Client or the Editor throwing a NullPointerException when used was fixed. The 0.50 branch is now in maintenance mode. Apart from bug fixes, all further changes will be made in the upcoming 0.51 branch.
Rainbows! is an HTTP server for sleepy Rack applications. It is based on Unicorn, but designed to handle applications that expect long request/response times and/or slow clients. For Rack applications not heavily bound by slow external network dependencies, consider Unicorn instead as it simpler and easier to debug.
Release Notes: Minor internal cleanups were done. kgio was bumped to version 2.5 to remove the dependency on io/wait. kgio 2.5 or later is now required. (kgio 2.6 or later will be required in the next release.)
