No download Website 18 Sep 18:18 j661 0.51 Beta 2

Screenshot

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: It is now possible to create or load more than one layer with the same Application ID and LayerID in the Editor. DataProvider: this version allows you to define arbitrary expressions, including enclosed expressions used as function parameters declarations. Also, the provider fails gracefully rather than throwing an exception if the DataProvider defined in the configuration file does not exist. A new DataProvider connecting to a live FlightGear instance is also provided. This release also contain preliminary work for ARINC Extensions support (a new supplement 5 concept).

Download Website 18 Sep 18:17 Zero Install Injector 1.3

Screenshot

Zero Install is a decentralized cross-distribution software installation system. It allows software developers to publish programs directly from their own Web sites, while supporting features familiar from centralized distribution repositories such as shared libraries, automatic updates, and digital signatures. It is intended to complement, rather than replace, the operating system's package management. 0install packages never interfere with those provided by the distribution.

Release Notes: Downloading now uses threads, rather than sub-processes, for greater efficiency. Support was added for NetworkManager 0.9. Command-specific bindings are now supported. When fetching information from the key information service, the HTTPS connection is now properly authenticated. A German translation was added.

Download Website 18 Sep 18:17 Zebra_Pagination 1.2

Screenshot

Zebra_Pagination is a generic pagination PHP library which automatically generates HTML navigation links (next, previous, specific pages) given the total number of records and the number of records to be displayed per page. It can generate links both in natural and in reverse order, can be easily localized, supports page propagation via GET or via URL rewriting, lets the appearance be easily customized through CSS, and is SEO-friendly (it uses rel="prev" and rel="next", and solves the problem of duplicate content on the first page without navigation and the first page having the page number in the URL). Please note that this is a *generic* pagination PHP library, meaning that it does not display any records. It is up to the developer to fetch the actual data and display it based on the information returned by this class. The advantage is that it can be used to paginate records coming from any source (arrays, database, etc). Zebra_Pagination's code is heavily commented and generates no warnings/errors/notices when PHP's error reporting level is set to E_ALL.

Release Notes: In version 1.2, the link to the first page does not include the "page" parameter anymore, in order to avoid duplicate content. Some optimizations were made in the code.

Download No website 18 Sep 18:16 KnProxy 4.33

Screenshot

KnProxy is a small PHP based Web proxy that makes use of the cURL module built into PHP. It uses limited server resources while still maintaining performance. KnProxy is aimed to be easy to use and does not inject information into Web pages. It returns the Web page as is, only changing the links to the resources to be proxied. The URL is obfuscated to prevent tracking or URL filtering. KnProxy has extended support for AJAX calls and JavaScript. This tool can be useful in places where the Internet is not as free as intended. It is also good for bypassing school or office firewalls. It is especially optimized to get past the GFW of China.

Download Website 18 Sep 18:14 sawfish 1.8.2

Screenshot

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: More robustness for get-window-by-* functions. Fixes all issues in higher-level functions, like failing jump-or-exec. Doing cursor-warping to a shaded window now warps to the correct position. Manager selection handling has been fixed. Failing to generate an application menu, while parsing incorrect .desktop files, has been fixed. In EdgeActions, HotSpot, HotMove, and EdgeFlip are prevented from being invoked multiple times a time. This release fixes Debian packaging scripts and makes compilation with makepp instead of GNU make work.

Release Notes: The code has been migrated to github, and the mailing list migrated to Google Groups. The codebase has been updated to use latest version of autotools, and tested to compile and work correctly with latest version of Apache. A few bugs have been fixed since the last release, but there are relatively few changes from the last snapshot; mostly cleanups and getting ready for more work on the module.

Download Website 18 Sep 18:09 librep 0.92.1b

Screenshot

Librep is a shared library implementing a Lisp dialect that is lightweight, reasonably fast, and highly extensible. It contains an interpreter, byte-code compiler, and virtual machine. Applications may use the interpreter as an extension language, or it may be used for standalone scripts. Rep was originally inspired by Emacs Lisp. However one of the main deficiencies of elisp--the reliance on dynamic scope--has been removed. Also, rep only has a single namespace for symbols.

Release Notes: This release fixes a bug in librep.pc, which prevented compilation of rep-gtk and Sawfish. It fixes build failures on OS X 10.6, OS X 10.7, and if an old FFI is installed. Several missing symbols have been added to the symbol file. Compilation is allowed with makepp instead of GNU make. A 'position' meta-function has been added, and a few helpers imported from Sawfish.

Download Website 18 Sep 18:07 rep-gtk 0.90.7

Screenshot

rep-gtk is a language-binding between GTK+/GDK and librep. Basic GLib and ATK bindings are included, too. The bindings for outdated, deprecated libraries (libgnome, libgnomeui, libgnomecanvas, and libglade) have been dropped. In favor of libglade, GTKBuilder is supported.

Release Notes: This release requires GTK+ 2.24 and GDK 2.23. Newly wrapped or completed API: GtkAccelGroup, GtkAccelMap, GtkExpander, GtkComboBox, GtkComboBoxText, GtkScale, GtkRC, GdkPixbuf, and GtkImage. The API in GtkFileChooser has been fixed. The API has been freed from deprecated functions in GtkComboBox, GtkComboBoxEntry, and GtkButton.

Screenshot

Strategico is an engine for running statistical analysis over groups of time series. It can manage one or more groups (projects) of time series: by default, you can get data from a database or CSV files, normalize them, and then save them inside the engine. The first statistical analysis implemented inside Strategico is the "Long Term Prediction": it automatically finds the best model that fits each time series. Some of the models implemented are mean, trend, linear, exponential smoothing, and Arima. Strategico is scalable: the statistical analysis over each time series (of a project) can be run separately and independently. It is suggested that you set up an HPC Cluster (High Performance Computing) and/or use a resource scheduler like slurm. It is developed with R, one of the most famous statistical languages.

Release Notes: This release adds the naive model, a new Web console with Google (motion) charts.

No download Website 18 Sep 18:06 Seed7 2011-09-18

Screenshot

Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.

Release Notes: FAQ answers, explaining how interpreter and compiler look for include libraries, were improved. The function 'str', which converts a bigInteger to a string with a base, was added to "bigint.s7i". Documentation comments in "float.s7i" and "socket.s7i" were improved. Support for 'drwGetPixel' was added to the compiler. In "float.s7i", 'isnan' was renamed to 'isNaN' and 'isNegativeZero' was added. The runtime library and compiler were improved to work according to IEEE 754. The test program "chkflt.sd7" was improved to check IEEE 754 floating point conformance. The program "bas7.sd7" was improved.

Screenshot

MDIFramework provides a ready-to-use architecture to ease the creation MDI-style applications in Java. It takes care of the overall architecture of the main window of the application, with a tabbed architecture, the presence of an HTML printable message area, and so on. It provides a generic API to manage lengthy actions, keeping the interface responsive, and taking care that actions are performed one at a time, without having to bother about it. It can add metadata to already opened files. It manages loading and unloading of external plugins at runtime.

Release Notes: This release fixes a bug that resulted in closing the currently selected tab in a TabbedPane even if the close button was clicked on another one.

Download Website 18 Sep 18:03 hiberlite 0.7

Screenshot

hiberlite provides C++ object-relational mapping for SQLite 3. Its design and API are inspired by the Boost.Serialization, which means there is almost no API to learn. In contrast to most serialization libraries with SQL serializers, C++ objects mapped with hiberlite behave similar to active record patterns: you are not forced to follow the "read all your data/modify some small part/write everything back" path. It is for people who need reliable data storage, ACID transactions, and simple random access to their data files, and don't like coding in SQL.

Release Notes: This is a bugfix release. The code is now forked on github.

Screenshot

Algorithmic Autoregulation is a software system implementing a new self-regulating methodology for coordinating teamwork, based on collaboration and individual merit. It is well-suited for distributed teams, eliminating the need for central management.

Avatar

Release Notes: (AA) log validation was implemented: the server now sends out emails to random team members asking them to validate a peer's logs for the day, encouraging them to write good, descriptive tweets of their programming activity. The (AA) client has a new parameter to display the remaining time for the session and for each 15min timeslot within which a tweet must be made. Numerous bugfixes and minor enhancements to both server and client were also carried out.
