MV3D is a virtual world and multi-player game framework for use with Python. It was designed with scalability in mind and is able to distribute a world across as many servers as needed while dynamically balancing the load. The simulation framework is not specifically slanted towards any one genre of online game or virtual world, and can just as easily be used for a space game as a fantasy setting. Objects on an MV3D server can be simulated using the ODE physics engine for realistic interactions. A single server is able to host thousands of of simulated objects. The client works with both the Ogre3D and Panda3D renderers.
Release Notes: This release focuses on scalability of worlds and includes support for splitting a single area across multiple server processes with automatic load balancing and redundancy. Areas can now be connected together using gateways to build worlds limited in size only by the amount of available hardware. The Overseer Cluster Management tool was upgraded in order to better handle many processes across multiple physical servers. Camera controls across all content tools have been unified. Better support for Panda3D clients was added as well.

jOOQ effectively combines complex SQL, type safety, source code generation, active records, stored procedures, advanced data types, and Java in a fluent, intuitive DSL.
Release Notes: This release ships with a couple of useful concepts inspired by other frameworks. #selecting into custom POJOs is possible. Results can be mapped to POJOs by convention or using JPA @Column annotations. #selecting into custom callbacks, which is already a wide-spread practice in Spring JdbcTemplates. #selecting long-running queries asynchronously, an idea inspired by the Avaje Ebean framework. Apart from these changes and some bugfixes, the internal API has been completely redesigned.
py5mon is a script that decodes CCIR (selcall, 5-tone). Input support is currently limited to WAV files.
Release Notes: This release implements input from line-in/microphone, plus some useful "features"/changes in logic: #820916 (microphone/line-in input). Support has been added for decoding both 2 and 3 trains without pause.
echinus is a lightweight window manager for X based on dwm's source code. It manages windows in tiled, maximized, and floating layouts. It is extremely small, rather fast, and supports Xft. It features nice titlebars, multiple desktops, theming support, a simple configuration file, the ability to switch desktops with the mouse wheel, X bitmaps for title buttons, and true transparency support (through xcompmgr). There is no need to recompile or restart X to change its configuration.
Release Notes: This release is all about internal changes; there is nothing exciting for the user.
BpmDj is a program that can be used by a DJ. It plays MP3 and Ogg files. It has a fully automatic BPM counter. It can determine the sound color. It has a full fledged Qt based interface. It will help you manage a large amount of songs. It can help in creating playlists and has proven to be very robust. The program also allows offline automatic mixing and contains a wavelet based beat graph analyzer to visualize audio tracks.
Release Notes: A new tempo analysis algorithm was introduced. It is a lot slower, but more accurate.
Cutter is a unit testing framework for C and C++. It provides an easy test writing API and easy debugging output to continue testing.
Release Notes: This release improves multi-thread test support.
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: This is a bugfixes only release.
phpMyFAQ is a multilingual, completely database-driven FAQ system.

To use, an author writes the source information in plain text files or in word processor documents. The content structure is provided with an embedded unobtrusive prefix notation or with self-defined formats. You can navigate and query the source text structure with a script and generate from a single source multiple documents in different formats that extract all or some part of the contents.
Release Notes: Enhancements were made in settings and in the CMS add-in module. Some bugs were fixed.
Wieldy is a to-do list manager that is based on the principles of GTD (Getting Things Done). It allows you to manage your to-dos in a simple but effective way. To-dos can be created as thoughts and actions, which can then be assigned to the Next Action, Today, or Someday categories.

Spack is a standalone package manager with its own CPIO-based package format but aiming to keep total compatibility with Slackware Linux. Written in POSIX shell as much as it makes sense, it attempts to provide a fairly complete toolkit to build, install, remove, list, retrieve, and arrange your packages. It can be used as an alternative to Slackware's pkgtools, just to independently and properly manage your local software on any distribution, or as the main package manager of the distribution you build yourself.
Release Notes: This release slightly improves the code and the UI of spacklist. It also makes spackcook correctly manage the xzipped sources, and make spackrm properly handle the patterns containing characters that have special meaning for a regular expression.

pam_mount is a Pluggable Authentication Module that can mount volumes for a user session upon login, using the same passwords as for login. It supports any filesystem your kernel is capable of, including FUSE, SMB/CIFS, various crypto types, and more.
Release Notes: Networked volumes do not require a "server" attribute anymore, which allows integration with pam_winbind and Active Directory. Multiple diagnostics were added to umount.crypt to help determine details of potential failures.
Xataface is a flexible and shapable skin that sits on top of MySQL, making it accessible to every-day users. It automatically generates the appropriate forms, lists, and menus for a user to interact with the database without having to know any SQL. It is a full-featured Web application framework, and gives developers the flexibility to customize the features and behavior of their application via configuration files (using the simple INI-file syntax), templates, and plug-ins. A generic application with no customizations is completely functional, but the developer is free to customize things at his leisure.
Release Notes: A bug was fixed that could cause a possible loss of precision when editing float fields if the server LC_NUMERIC locale uses commas for decimal points.
