UseBB is a PHP/MySQL forum package. Unlike other popular forum systems, it does not strive to have as many features as possible, but to be one of the easiest and most usable forum packages, limiting the basic feature set to only the essential. It is an ideal solution for small to medium-sized Web sites which require an easy to use forum package without the bloat, that produces standards compliant output, and is secure and easily configurable.
Release Notes: This is a general improvement and maintenance release. It adds more anti-spam measures and fixes bugs.
Tiny Core Linux is a very small (10 MB) minimal Linux desktop. It is based on the Linux 3.0 kernel, Busybox, Tiny X, and Fltk. The core runs entirely in RAM and boots very quickly. The user has complete control over which applications and/or additional hardware to have supported, be it for a desktop, a nettop, an appliance, or server, selectable from the online repository.
Release Notes: System auditing was much improved. AppsAudit now offers to fetch missing dependencies. Updates now reports "stale" extensions. Many community requested improvements were made to searching, wallpaper, and AppsBrowser. Support was added for EtherDrives, ATA over Ethernet. The system architecture diagrams and presentation via new system icons were updated.
Release Notes: Scheme drawing was switched to viewport. Better mouse support and viewport events were introduced. API documentation was created via YUIDoc. A Trac plugin was implemented. Now schematics can be rendered directly in Trac projects.
pepper is a commandline tool for retrieving statistics and generating reports from source code repositories. It ships with several graphical and textual reports, and is easily extensible using the Lua scripting language. It includes support for multiple version control systems, including Git and Subversion.
Release Notes: This release fixes a file name issue that could terminate the program when generating reports of sub-directories of Subversion repositories. Minor fixes have been applied to the age report.
Loadbars is a small script that can be used to observe CPU loads of several remote servers at once in real time. It connects with SSH (using SSH public/private key auth) to several servers at once and vizualizes all server CPUs and memory statistics right next each other (either summarized or each core separately). Loadbars is not a tool for collecting CPU loads and drawing graphs for later analysis. However, since such tools require a significant amount of time before producing results, Loadbars lets you observe the current state immediately. Loadbars does not remember or record any load information. It just shows the current CPU usages like top or vmstat does.
Release Notes: There is no interactive CLI shell anymore, but instead there are hotkeys for the SDL interface. Bugs were fixed. For example, Loadbars does not hang anymore after typing commands. Major code refactoring was done.
Umple can be used for pure UML modeling. Or it can be used to add UML constructs, such as associations and state machines to code written in Java, PHP, or Ruby. It generates code in these languages that can save a large amount of programming effort and result in higher quality. The UmpleOnline tool allows you to edit UML diagrams graphically, and watch the Umple textual code being written in real time. This works the other way too: you can write textual Umple and watch the corresponding UML diagram appear. Umple is being extended to support patterns, tracing, and a variety of other features. Umple is written in itself, which is central to maintaining its quality. Umple can be used today by any programmer or modeler.
Release Notes: A bug in the Eclipse plugin was fixed. The compiler has not changed, only the Eclipse plugin. The command-line compiler remains at 220.127.116.115. In the previous version, the Eclipse plugin failed to correctly invoke the compiler. All who had downloaded Eclipse plugin 18.104.22.1685 should replace it with this version.
etm is an acronym for Event and Task Manager. It provides a simple, intuitive format for using plain text files to store event, task, and other data items, a command line interface for viewing stored information in a variety of convenient ways, and a cross-platform, PyQt-based GUI for creating and modifying items as well as viewing them. Displayed items can be grouped by date, context, keyword, or project and can be filtered in various ways. A display of busy and free times is also supported, as is a ledger view of time spent that is suitable for client billing. Alarms are supported for events and repetition for both events and tasks in a powerful and flexible manner.
Release Notes: Minor feature enhancements were made to avoid rotating files. Instead a file is created in the etm directories for each month. Command line options were added to e.py to check for newer versions and to start the GUI. Minor bugs were fixed.
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: You can now pass string variables from a page to the template. Pages can be organized into subfolders. A bug where the CLI option -v crashed was fixed.
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: This release fixes an issue when resizing NTFS file systems.
nts is an acronym for Note Taking Simplified. It provides a simple, intuitive format for using plain text files to store notes, a command line interface for viewing notes in a variety of convenient ways, and a cross-platform, wx(python)-based GUI for creating and modifying notes as well as viewing them. Displayed items can be grouped by path or tag and can be filtered in various ways.
Release Notes: A bug in the tag filter was fixed. Date and datetime stamp expansion were added using ".d" and ".dt", respectively.
IMAPFilter is a mail filtering utility. It connects to remote mail servers using the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP), sends searching queries to the server, and processes mailboxes based on the results.
Release Notes: This release introduces support for appending and uploading messages to mailboxes. A bug which caused a mailbox to be incorrectly assumed selected was fixed. Another problem where some servers required an update of their capabilities after login was fixed. A timeout error during CRAM-MD5 authentication was fixed.
Sawfish (the window manager formerly known as Sawmill) is an extensible window manager using a Lisp-based extension language. All window decorations are configurable and all user-interface policy is controlled through the language. Its aim is to manage windows in the most flexible and attractive manner possible. As such it does not implement desktop backgrounds, application docks, or other things that may be achieved through separate applications. Sawfish is mostly GNOME-compliant; almost all configuration may be made through a graphical interface.
Release Notes: Cursor-warping to a shaded window now properly works. EdgeActions are prevented from being called multiple times at once. SawfishConfig can now also grab mouse-bindings. New hooks are before/after-edge-action-hook and before-restart-hook. New EdgeActions are HotMove and Tiling. In SawfishConfig, several helper-widgets were removed. Many of the meta-widgets use more modern GTK+2 widgets. The general appearance and layout have been improved. New features include MouseTrapping and SingleWindowMode.
Desfonema Sequencer is a tracker-inspired MIDI sequencer. It uses a pattern oriented design, with n tracks by pattern. It offers a piano roll editor for tracks, and a tabbed track interface for patterns. It features convenient keyboard shortcuts, a virtual keyboard, step and live editing, MIDI input (ALSA), and a text-based file format that is easy to edit manually or merge and better suited for version systems like Subversion.
Release Notes: There is now an individual mute for each track instead of "solo" mode. Player thread handling pattern playing was added for better performance. The code for song refreshing on pattern name change was improved. The code in roll painting was cleaned up. Track expansion and shrinking were added. A note can have variable length in live recording. More comments were added and the code was reorganized for easy hacking. New shortcuts were added for moving one octave up or down. Noise in synth/port change while playing was fixed.
GNOME Commander is a fast and powerful graphical file manager. It has a "two-pane" interface in the tradition of Norton and Midnight Commander. It features drag'n'drop, GNOME MIME types, FTP, SFTP, and WebDAV using the GnomeVFS FTP module, SAMBA access, the ability to extend the context menu with entries to call external applications or scripts on the selected items, quick device access buttons with automatic mounting and unmounting, a fast file viewer for text and images, a history of recently accessed folders, and folder bookmarks.
Release Notes: This release fixes a crash on displaying file properties when connected to FTP.
iesd is a shell based daemon that uses Linux cgroups (cpu and blkio) to improve the responsiveness of the user's workstation. Inspired by both the "200 line kernel wonder patch" and "shell four liner", this shell daemon was written so that any kernel that supports cgroup cpu can bring benefits to the user.
Release Notes: Blkio was enabled. Hooks were added for notify_on_release.
lpkfuse is a FUSE filesystem that lets you place all the SSH public keys of your users into LDAP. Without this tool, you would have to patch your SSH server (for example using openssh-lpk) to support this. But with lpkfuse, you just need to amend AuthorizedKeysFile in your sshd_config file. Other benefits include LDAP resilence and caching/local-fallback in case no LDAP servers are accessible.
Release Notes: This is the initial release to the public.
Open Administration for Schools (OAfS) is a Web-based school administration package. Open Admin does demographics, attendance, discipline, report cards, and has an online gradebook and parent viewing function. It is designed for elementary, K-12, and high schools. It generates plain HTML and uses LaTeX for PDF generation. It also includes special education and division-wide central office modules (all schools run on the same server with different virtual sites; two sites per school, one for teachers, and one for the office). Parent functions are by separate parent/school site.
Release Notes: This adds a new textbook management system and various other smaller tweaks.
Gauche is an R5RS Scheme implementation that aims to be a handy tool for daily work. Quick startup, a built-in system interface, and native multilingual support are some of its goals. It has an OO system similar to STklos and Guile. It supports UTF-8, EUC-JP, and Shift-JIS multibyte encodings natively.
Release Notes: Various minor feature enhancements and bugfixes were made in this release. New features include Unicode case-mapping support, a utility for atomic execution, a convenient benchmarking utility, and a public API for C code generation routines. The Windows binary installer now comes as an MS installer file, generated by WiX.
py5mon is a script that decodes CCIR (selcall, 5-tone). Input support is currently limited to WAV files.
Release Notes: This release contains the most basic features. It only supports 22050Hz, 16bit WAV. When used with -p (play), it outputs a warning from PyAudio regarding devices, but it still works correctly.
(R)?ex is a tool that allows you to manage all of your servers from a central point, through the complete process of configuration management and software deployment.

FluidSynth is a real-time software synthesizer based on the SoundFont 2 specifications. It can read MIDI events from MIDI input devices or files and render them to an audio device using SoundFont instrument banks. It can also play MIDI files. Other features include real time effect control and a powerful API for embedding FluidSynth in other programs.
Release Notes: Several improvements and fixes were made to the CMake build system, especially for Mac OS X. Several bugs were fixed in the engine, notably quite a few which could cause FluidSynth to sound bad in some cases. Additions were made to the API that make it possible to load MIDI files from memory, to inspect and modify MIDI events as they are being played from a MIDI file, to change channels between melodic and drum mode, and to silence all notes in one command. Improvements were made to the CoreAudio driver.
filterunit allows unit tests to be devised for command line programs that use files as input and output. Classic Unix filters are a typical example. filterunit runs the program under test with the specified input files and compares the actual results with the expected results.
Release Notes: If 'inputCount' is zero, input files are no longer necessary and other input files may determine test names.
