It is similar to Java's Seasar and Spring.
Release Notes: This release improves how TCPServer works. It adds TCPPeer to encapsulate clients to simplify handlers. It adds connect and read timeout to the PAMI helper.
httping is a "ping"-like tool for HTTP requests. Give it a URL and it will show how long it takes to connect, send a request, and retrieve the reply (only the headers). It can be used for monitoring or statistical purposes (measuring latency).
Release Notes: This release adds persistent connections.
Clonezilla is a partition or disk cloning tool similar to Symantec Ghost. It saves and restores only blocks in use on the hard drive if the file system is supported. For unsupported file systems, dd is used instead. It has been used to clone a 5 GB system to 40 clients in about 10 minutes.
Release Notes: The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2011/Jul/27). The Linux kernel was updated to 3.0.0-1. Gdisk was updated to 0.7.2 and compiled without Unicode support. Therefore libicu44 is no longer included. This makes the Clonezilla live ISO file smaller by about 6 MB.
IDAutomation's Data Matrix bar code fonts allow printing of high density ECC200 Data Matrix symbols with TrueType, PCL, and PostScript fonts by using IDAutomation Vertical Interleaved Technology. It includes VB code, a Java Library, an ASP.NET Web Control, a .NET Forms Control DLL, and examples for Excel, Word, Access, Java, .NET, and Crystal Reports. Hundreds of text characters and binary data can be stored securely and inexpensively with the Data Matrix symbology.

view3dscene is a browser for VRML (1.0 and 2.0) and X3D, and a viewer for other 3D model formats (3DS, MD3, Wavefront OBJ, and Collada are handled). It supports viewing the scene in the "Examine" mode and walking in the virtual world with features such as collision detection and gravity. Rendering is done using OpenGL. Many advanced 3D graphic effects are available, like mirrors (flat and through cube environment mapping), shadows (shadow maps and shadow volumes), GLSL shaders and more. The program can also convert files from 3DS, MD3, Collada and other formats to X3D and pretty-print VRML and X3D files.
Release Notes: X3D models can be saved to disk using the X3D XML encoding. Conversion from VRML 2 to X3D is now possible. New menu items and command-line options were added to enable conversion to various VRML/X3D versions and encodings. The independent "tovrmlx3d" binary was added to the view3dscene release, specifically to perform conversions in batch mode. Saving VRML/X3D models to classic encoding was also improved with better handling of META tags, better indentation, and more reliable saving of models using shadow maps extensions.
PAC provides a GUI to configure SSH and Telnet connections, including usernames, passwords, EXPECT regular expressions, and macros. It is similar in function to SecureCRT or Putty. It is intended for people who connect to many servers through SSH. It can automate logins and command executions.
Release Notes: A GUI option was added to use an SSH/SFTP publick key/passphrase for authentication. The "freezed" configuration file format is used for PAC again, since the file size growing bug was fixed. This increases the speed of load and save operations, but obfuscates the configuration file. The "FreezeThaw" Perl dependency was removed. Minor drag and drop support was added for the "Expect" tab page of the "Edit" window. An option was added in default preferences to remember PAC's main window when closed. Some configuration checks (with GUI feedback) were added when saving connections data. Bugs were fixed.
Nyagua is a little piece of software that may help you to manage your home aquarium. It can store data about measurements in aquariums and produce graphs from these. It can store data about expenses and produce a report with yearly, monthly, and daily costs. It reports the compatibility between fishes and plants in its database. It can import fishbase.org XML data, and your own pictures can be added.
Release Notes: This is mainly a bug fix version. Compatibility analysis plotting and related settings were added. Calculators were fixed. Some translations were fixed. Date management in readings was fixed. A better launcher is used for the browser in Mac OS X.
Release Notes: A problem with jumping out of SSL on HTTPS hosted platforms was fixed. Incorrect parsing of some GET forms was fixed. A vulnerability regarding HTML injections in the URL field on incorrect requests was fixed. The (non-RFC) "refresh:" HTTP header is now respected. New encryption salt is used.
SmartGit/Hg is a graphical user interface for Git and Mercurial which can work with SVN repositories. It supports cloning from common repository providers (e.g., GitHub, Assembla), assists Git newbies, and also offers the advanced, powerful Git features. It provides several tools to help create clean commits, for example by allowing the user to commit just parts of changes files and reordering and squashing unpushed commits. If you are using GitHub or GitHub Enterprise, SmartGit/Hg can work easily with pull requests (creation, resolving) and commit comments. SmartGit/Hg ships with a built-in SSH client, file comparer, and merge tool which are capable of syntax coloring for many languages.
Release Notes: This build fixes a bug with Mac OS X 10.7 and another one with non-native line-separators.
PieDock is a task bar in the shape of a pie menu that appears directly around your mouse cursor. It feels a little bit like the Mac OS X dock but in a circular shape.
Release Notes: Custom button actions are supported for menus and icons.
Treep is a simple language for doing symbolical computations. It operates on numbers and strings that can be organized in more complex objects. These objects are lists of name-value pairs that are stored in memory as AVL trees. It has about sixty built-in functions to operate on such data and a way to define new functions. Treep syntax very much resembles Lisp. The power of treep is its simplicity and security. Treep is a good tool do process objects and relations between them. For example it is possible to define graphs as a sets of vertices and edges in text file, parse that file, do any computations you like, write modified data to text file. Treep works well on graphs, trees, linked lists, simple hashes. Treep is not good at processing texts, dealing with system input/output.
Release Notes: The code was simplified. Many bugs were removed. This version has been extremely well tested.
AQEMU is GUI for QEMU and KVM emulators. It has a user-friendly interface and allows you to set up the majority of QEMU and KVM options.

Cyphertite is a tar-like secure remote archiver. It deduplicates, compresses, and encrypts data prior to transmission, providing total privacy while reducing unnecessary wire traffic. It seamlessly supports IPv6 and IPv4 on a variety of platforms.
Release Notes: The wizard was modified to create the configuration path and to run it at more expected times. max_mdcache_size was added to the configuration file to prevent the cache directory from growing beyond a set value. md_max_differentials was added to the configuration file to govern when a new level 0 backup is run. The code now ensures that all metadata parts are downloaded before starting the extract operation. Asymmetrical differential backups are prevented from running. Some error messages were improved. A couple of bugs in the differential backup code path were fixed.
uim is a multilingual input method framework. It aims to provide a flexible development platform and useful user environment for input methods. It works in many environments, including general desktop systems such as GNOME or KDE, and even in a console. It also supports Linux Zaurus and Mac OS X.
Release Notes: Some new features were added for uim-tutcode and uim-byeoru input methods. uim's systray toolbar now supports gnome-shell. Several minor fixes and enhancements against 1.7.0 were added, as usual.
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: This release updates the definition for the A661_NUMERIC_READOUT, A661_GP_POLYLINE, and A661_SCALED_TRANSLATION_CONTAINER, as of the draft version of the ARINC 661 standard. Normally the definition of these widgets should be final now. It also adds the ability to use a texture (rather than a plain color) to render Lines and Polylines in the synth2 Look and Feel. Some small bugs were also fixed.
RO (Repository Observer) is a complex tool that watches over systems and tied repositories. It gathers information about packages installed on observed systems and available updates for packages in repositories related to these systems, and helps one to determine which systems should be updated. It was originally designed ALT Linux distributions, but can probably be used with other RPM-based systems.
Release Notes: This release adds support for the CGI module version 3.49 or later and LWP library version 6.00 or later. It also adds setting of LWP UA options in configuration of RO Client.
GLFW is a portable framework for OpenGL application development. It handles operating system specific tasks such OpenGL window management, resolution switching, keyboard, mouse, and joystick input, timer input, creating threads, and more.
Release Notes: Many minor issues have been fixed. Most notably, a buffer overflow in WGL context creation was fixed, a test was added for the WGL_ARB_create_context_profile extension, a regression in the dlopen code path was fixed, a termination error in GLX context creation has been fixed, the active and iconified states are now tracked on Cocoa, and Win32 window iconification has been improved. Projects files for Visual C++ 2010 have been added. A test for dynamic linking has been added.
Burp is a program that backs up and restores data. It uses librsync in order to save on the amount of space that is used by each backup. It also uses VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to make snapshots when backing up Windows computers.
Release Notes: FreeBSD xattr/acl support was added. The ability to handle Windows junction points was added. The "nobackup = [file name]" option was added. If this file system entry exists, the directory containing it will not be backed up. An important bug was fixed so that the librsync signature block size is set based on the old file size. Other small bugs were fixed.
PdfMasher is a tool to convert PDF files containing text into a ready-for-ebook set of HTML files. Most ebook readers support PDF files natively, but it's often a real pain to read those documents because you can't control the font size of the document and have to resort to the zooming feature instead. Another drawback of PDFs on ebook readers is that annotations are not supported. Unlike other tools that convert PDFs to ebooks, PdfMasher does not try to guess the role of each piece of text in the PDF, and instead asks the user about the role of each piece of text, and does so in an efficient manner.
Release Notes: This release adds a new flag: "To Fix". It adds keyboard shortcuts for quickly flagging elements. It improves text layout detection in PDFs. It fixes bugs preventing some PDFs from being read.
ZABBIX is an enterprise-class distributed monitoring solution designed to monitor and track performance and availability of network servers, devices, and other IT resources. It supports distributed and Web-based monitoring, auto-discovery, real-time monitoring, SLA assurance, trending, and more.
