Scan Tailor is an interactive post-processing tool for scanned pages. It performs operations such as page splitting, deskewing, adding/removing borders, despeckling, and others. You give it raw scans and you get pages ready to be printed or assembled into a PDF or a DJVU file.
Release Notes: The major new feature in this release is page dewarping. There are both manual and automatic modes. Another big addition is a command-line version of the program. Other changes include additional "apply to" options on the "Select Content" and "Margins" stages, bug fixes, and a number of new translations.
FireBreath is a cross-platform plugin architecture, targeting NPAPI browsers on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux (Gecko/Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Opera) and ActiveX Control hosts, including all versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer. It is designed to make it easier to get started than even doing an NPAPI plugin by hand. A Python-based "fbgen" tool generates a template skeleton and makes it possible to have a functioning browser plugin up and running in 20 minutes.
Release Notes: The Safari 5.1 issue was fixed. A major build speed increase was made on Windows. Proxy detection support was added. Many more bugfixes and improvements were done.
LEAF is a secure, feature-rich, customizable embedded Linux network appliance for use in a variety of network topologies. Although it can be used in other ways, it's primarily used as a Internet gateway, router, firewall, and wireless access point.
Release Notes: This version of Bering-uClibc introduces a kernel update, updates of various packages to new upstream versions, general improvements to support more harwdare right from the start and, as usual, a few fixes for bugs found in the latest version. The newly added packages are bind, sysstat, mbusd, dibbler-server, and an openldap client library.
The Parted Magic OS employs core programs from GParted and Parted to handle partitioning tasks with ease, while featuring other useful programs including Partition Image, TestDisk, fdisk, sfdisk, dd, and ddrescue and an excellent set of documentation to benefit the user. An extensive collection of fileystem tools are also included, and the following filesystems are supported: ext2, ext3, ext4, FAT16, FAT32, HFS, HFS+, JFS, Linux-swap, NTFS, ReiserRS, reiser4, and XFS. It loads completely to system memory and requires at least 256MB of RAM to operate.
Release Notes: Lots of updates, bug fixes, and new features were made. Parted Magic's kernel was updated to Linux 3.0, and SMP support was removed from the i486 kernel. Some people were having issues with the Nouveau Xorg driver, so an option was added to the failsafe menu to revert back to the nv driver. If you add “clonezilla” to the kernel command line at boot time, you are brought directly into Clonezilla. There are some major improvements in handling of Radeon and Mobile4 video cards. Some major updates were made to popular core programs as well. Firefox was updated to 5.0, Clonezilla to 1.2.9-19, and GParted to 0.9.0.
sakura is a vte-based terminal emulator. It aims to provide a terminal emulator that only depends on GTK and VTE. It uses a notebook to allow multiple tabs in the same window.
Release Notes: Several important bugfixes and translation updates were made.
xjobs runs several jobs in parallel and limits the number of jobs running at once so that every processor of the machine is busy, but not overloaded. A batch of long-running processes invoked from the shell are normally executed one after another, no matter how many processors are available. xjobs allows batching those jobs while still keeping the machine busy. The interface of xjobs is similar to that of xargs.
Release Notes: Removal of the DESTDIR install prefix was reverted. Some lint cleanups were made.
libHX is a C library (with some C++ bindings available) that provides data structures and functions that are commonly needed, such as maps, deques, linked lists, string formatting and autoresizing, option and config file parsing, type checking casts, and more.
Release Notes: base64 was added as a new method to the quoting/encoding function. An additional debug library is now available that the user can LD_PRELOAD to do extra runtime correctness checks.
Thumbnailator is a thumbnail generation library with a fluent interface for Java. It simplifies the process of producing thumbnails from existing image files and image objects by providing an API which allows for fine tuning of thumbnail generation, while keeping the amount of code that needs to be written to a minimum.
Release Notes: An issue was resolved where the file that the thumbnail was written to remains open, preventing certain programs from accessing that file.
gst123 is a GStreamer-based command line audio player in the style of mpg123 and ogg123. The advantage over these tools is that gst123 can play every file GStreamer can, so mixed music collections with FLAC, Ogg, and MP3 files are no problem. Newer versions of gst123 additionally provide support for playing video files, while the ability to use gst123 without X11 display has been preserved.
Release Notes: Annoying warnings caused by the glib option parser were fixed. A minor memory leak was fixed.
Xye is a puzzle game in which the objective is to get all the gems in each level. The mission is not as easy as it sounds: there are traps, monsters, and very hard puzzles everywhere. The player can interact with objects in the game in a lot of ways, and some of the objects can also interact with other objects.
Release Notes: Changes were made to make the game friendlier. The button to undo the last move has been added (re-enabled). Your current game will be automatically saved for each level you enter. Other minor fixes were made.
Release Notes: Command line options are handled. Many minor bugs were corrected.
Miscellaneous Container Templates is a C++ library that provides a collection of various STL-like containers with specific properties. It currently contains six closely related containers: closed_hash_set, closed_hash_map, linked_hash_*, and forward_hash_*. The first two are very similar to TR1 unordered_set and unordered_map; the linked ones provide additional functionality, while forward hash tables are more performant than linked, but have a restricted interface.
Release Notes: This release fixes a C++0x-only bug with move semantics, which resulted in crashes in certain cases.
Release Notes: Support for complex model binding was added. The bug regarding finding an action URL in the route table was fixed, and users can specify a route name. The interface has been refined for a displaying complex model in a nested table.
PICsim emulates a PIC16F628/16F877A microcontroller and peripherals such as USART, EEPROM, and timers. The simulator architecture permits easy implementation of external elements in the C language. PicsimLab is a realtime emulator of development boards.
Release Notes: 18f WDT was implemented. A 16f PCL bug was fixed. A 18f minor core bug was fixed. 18f interrupt level was implemented. A fast stack bug was fixed. A hexfile load bug was fixed. A PIC18XXX RCALL bug was fixed. An interrupts flags bug was fixed. PIC16F777 is supported. In the simulator, psp is supported for 18f, window and psp memory limits can be configured, RTC DS1307 was implemented, max clock is automatically adjusted, resize window wsa implemented, Board 5 and 6 were added, an I2C bus bug was fixed, and LCD 4-bit mode was implemented.
screen-session is a collection of tools for GNU Screen. It includes a session saver and a session manager, among others.
Release Notes: This version of screen-session contains a few new features and fixes a number of bugs in the previous release. For easier installation, a modified distribution of GNU Screen is included. New tools include layoutlist, subwindows, layout-checkpoint, layout-undo, layout-redo and layout-history.
The goal of Hilbert II, which is in the tradition of Hilbert's program, is the creation of a system that enables a working mathematician to put theorems and proofs (in the formal language of predicate calculus) into it. These proofs are automatically verified by a proof checker. Because this system is not centrally administered and enables references to any location on the Internet, a world wide mathematical knowledge base could be built. It also contains information in "common mathematical language".
Release Notes: There is now a parser that can read a propositional calculus proof written in ASCII text format and transform it into a QEDEQ XML NODE element. This helps speed up proof integration. It can be accessed via GUI menu entry "Tools / Proof Text to QEDEQ". A derivation rule now also has a version, and the combination of name and version must be unique. A "brief" parameter was introduced for the LaTeX and UTF-8 plugin to produce summary documents. More propositions with formal proofs are included.
Zebra_Form is a PHP class that simplifies the process of creating and validating HTML forms. Its object-oriented structure promotes rapid HTML forms development and encourages developers to write clean and easily maintainable code. It frees the developers from the repetitive task of writing the code for validating forms by offering powerful built-in client-side and server-side validation. Zebra_Form has an integrated cross-site scripting prevention mechanism that automatically strips out potentially malicious code from the submitted data. It also prevents automated SPAM posts, out of the box and without relying on CAPTCHA by using honey pots. Output can be generated either automatically or manually through templates (basic PHP files). When generated automatically, the generated output has the same look and feel across all major browsers. It provides all the controls you’d expect in an HTML form and, additionally, date/time pickers, captcha, and AJAX-like file upload controls.
Release Notes: A bug was fixed where dates would never validate for languages other than English. The form now completely adheres to http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/H44.html, which requires that all controls have an associated label. Previously, the honeypot element did not have an associated label. Some minor optimizations were done in the PHP code as well as some clarifications in the documentation regarding the "resize" rule.
ITDB is a Web-based tool used to store information about assets found in office environments, with a focus on IT assets, but not limited to such. It will help you keep track of hardware, software, relationships between assets, invoices, locations, contracts, people, and rack layouts. It can also print labels for all assets.
Release Notes: Major changes include a new paginating data grid for all lists (such as items, software, invoices, and files), and translation file support for interface translation. Other changes include a separate area field for items and racks in addition to location (building, floor), graphical display of rack occupation, and about a dozen other improvements and bug fixes.
SportsTracker is an application for recording sporting activities. It is not bound to a specific kind of sport, as categories can be created for all sport types, such as cycling, running, or tennis. The main advantages are the good overview of your exercises and the easy creation of exercise statistics for specific time ranges and sport types. Users of heart rate monitors (Polar and CicloSport) can import, display (including diagrams), and organize the recorded exercise data.
Release Notes: This update includes minor usability improvements and an important bugfix for users of GPX exercise files. The libraries have been updated and the build process has been improved. SportsTracker now also runs with the recently released Java 7.
Genit is a framework that builds a static Web site, which does not require a server side programming language or database. Generated sites consist only of XHTML code (plus CSS and media). It runs from the command line, is based on XML, and is designed to be simple, readable, and minimalist.
Release Notes: A bug where the closing part of auto-closing tags were forgotten was fixed.
Mutabor is a program that allows you to perform and compose microtonal music using a normal MIDI keybord and normal MIDI equipment. Its powerful description language is intended to allow permanent retunings and complex tuning logic. One application is just tuning. Mutabor has been used for this purpose to make available all pitches that can be reached by stacking perfect thirds and perfect fifths. The stable version 3.0x is available in German only and runs under Windows and Wine. The unstable branch can be accessed via CVS (but build bugs should be expected) or downloaded from the Berlios developer site.
Release Notes: Most of the code has been rewritten. Only the core has not changed. It should work with your files from Mutabor II and 3. The GPL is now used. New features include a GUI using wxWidgets, German and English translations, and a new route editor. Routes are saved in the configuration now. Support for creating .deb packages was added. This is a snapshot release. It probably contains many bugs and is incomplete.
Kismon is a PyGTK based Kismet Newcore (since 2009-05-RC1) client with a live map of the networks.
Release Notes: The map was rewritten from libchamplain to osmgpsmap. Newly supported export file formats include Kismon JSON, Kismet netxml, Google Earth kmz, and MapPoint CSV.
