The Java Algebra System (JAS) is an object oriented, type safe, multi-threaded approach to computer algebra. JAS provides a well designed software library using generic types for algebraic computations implemented in the Java programming language. The library can be used as any other Java software package, or it can be used interactively or interpreted through a Jython or JRuby front end. The focus at the moment is on commutative and solvable polynomials, power-series, multivariate polynomial factorization, Gröbner bases, and applications.
Release Notes: Test classes have been separated into a new test source tree (trc). New scripting classes for Gröbner base computations according to Eder and Perry (F5, Arri, GGV) in basic_sigbased_gb.py. jas.py has been adapted in JAS for the required methods. More JRuby examples. Small improvements and fixes.
Box is a programming language that puts special emphasis on graphics. It is intended to be for vector graphics what LaTeX is for writing scientific documents.
Release Notes: The Box graphic library was largely redesigned and rewritten in Box (rather than C). It is now cleaner and better structured: high level functionality (drawing polygons, etc) is derived from low level functionality (paths and command streams). New commands were added (figure clipping with "Clip" and matrix computation with "Constraints"). The old interface is still supported. Documentation was added with Dox, the Box documentation tool, and can be browsed from Boxer in a separate window. Boxer was adapted to the new graphic library. Bugs were fixed (most noticeably the copy of composite objects)
PeaZip is a cross-platform file archiver utility that provides a unified portable GUI for many open source technologies like 7-Zip, FreeArc, PAQ, UPX, etc. Creates 7Z, ARC, BZ2, GZ, *PAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, WIM, XZ, and ZIP files. It extracts more than 150 archive types: ACE, ARJ, CAB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RAR, UDF, ZIPX, and more. Features of PeaZip include extracting, creating, and converting multiple archives at once, creating self-extracting archives, split/join files, strong encryption with two factor authentication, an encrypted password manager, secure deletion, find duplicate files, calculate hashes, and export job definitions as scripts.
Release Notes: This release improves speed and responsiveness, and introduces many usability improvements like simpler search and renaming functions, an improved address bar, more information provided during a job's execution, and a fully integrated tool to find duplicate files and calculate CRC/hash of files.
mrouted is an implementation of the DVMRP multicast routing protocol. It turns a UNIX workstation into a DVMRP multicast router with tunnel support, in order to cross non-multicast-aware routers.
Release Notes: This release fixes a serious regression in route.c, introduced in 3.9.5, caused by the link list refactor. There is some minor cleanup and FTBFS issues on GCC 4.6.
Finnix is a small, self-contained, bootable Linux CD distribution ("LiveCD") for system administrators, based on Debian testing. You can use it to mount and manipulate hard drives and partitions, monitor networks, rebuild boot records, install other operating systems, and much more.

OpenIPMI is an effort to create a full-function IPMI system to allow full access to all IPMI information on a server and to abstract it to a level that will make it easy to use.
Release Notes: Assorted bugfixes.
Octave is a high-level language, primarily intended for numerical computations. It provides a convenient command line interface for solving linear and nonlinear problems numerically, and for performing other numerical experiments. It may also be used as a batch-oriented language.
Release Notes: Assorted bugfixes.
iRODS (integrated Rule-Oriented Data Systems) is a second generation data grid system providing a unified view and seamless access to distributed digital objects across a wide area network. It is an adaptive middleware data grid that operates by means of user-supplied rules and a Rule Engine which interprets the rules to decide how the system is to respond to various requests and conditions.
Release Notes: The iRODS Rule Engine has been completely re-written. Acceleration under Windows. Improved debugging of rules. Other enhancements and bugfixes.
The Interactive Spectral Interpretation System (ISIS) is designed to facilitate the interpretation and analysis of high resolution X-ray spectra. It is being developed as a programmable, interactive tool for studying the physics of X-ray spectrum formation, supporting measurement and identification of spectral features and interaction with a database of atomic structure parameters and plasma emission models.
Release Notes: Assorted bugfixes.
USL is an object-oriented scripting language written with C++ and compiled on both Linux and Windows. Without a script provided, USL is an interactive interpreter and programmable command shell. There is no socket programming with USL. USL is intended for general purpose scripting in local systems.
Release Notes: This release fixes the return, chomp, and shomp keywords. It also adds the ability to print values from list indices, list ranges, variable indices, variable ranges, and methods via interpolation. This release also fixes the random keyword to take variables as range parameters.
HPC Toolkit is a suite of multi-platform tools for profile-based performance analysis of applications.
Release Notes: This release adds full support for analyzing 64-bit Linux-POWER7 binaries. To profile/trace large-scale executions, support has been added for sampling processes to measure. Bugfixes.
delaboratory is an image postprocessing application. It allows you to modify the color and contrast of a photo in a creative way, using curves, a channel mixer, an equalizer, blur, an unsharp mask, high pass, vignette, dodge/burn, shadows/highlights, and blending in different colorspaces (sRGB, ProPhoto, LAB, CMYK, LCH, HSV, HSL) with floating-point precision. Each operation is stored as an adjustment layer, and you can watch a realtime preview.
Release Notes: Major project milestone. New GUI (there is a presentation video available), built-in blending in each action layer, blending masks (with optional blur), unsharp mask, and presets for curves and mixer.
The goal of Cheix USB is a Linux image executing from a USB storage device into a running OS, either Linux or Windows, so that the host machine does not have to support booting from the USB device. The root filesystem and boot partitions are read-only to preserve the USB device. All writes are done in a tmpfs. The only writes to the USB storage device are those explicitly made by the user. Cheix's ISO can currently be used to create either a bootable USB or a hard-drive installation.
Release Notes: The cheix_admin script has been altered so that it mounts and remounts /, /boot, and /var. The default user files have been gathered into /root/skel. Relocations from /etc to /var/etc have been minimized. Admin and user docs have been updated. Minor fixes have been made to the installation scripts.
GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. If you use ppss or pexec you will find GNU parallel will often make the command easier to read. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.
Release Notes: --tag prepends lines with the argument(s). If used with --(n)onall, the line will be prepended with the sshlogin instead. --shellquote does not run the command, but quotes it using \'s, which is useful for making quoted composed commands. --profile can now be repeated, merging multiple profiles. --bibtex now gives the BibTeX entry. A makefile for a simple .deb package: cd packager/debian; make. sql: --list-databases lists the databases.
htmLawed is a PHP script that makes input text more secure, HTML standards-compliant, and suitable in general from the viewpoint of a Web-page administrator, for use in the body of HTML 4 or XHTML 1 or 1.1 documents. It is a customizable HTML/XHTML filter, processor, purifier, and sanitizer. It can ensure that HTML tags are balanced and properly nested tags, neutralize code that may be used for cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, and limit the allowed HTML elements, tags, attributes, or URL protocols.
Release Notes: This release has a fix for a bug in the tidy functionality that caused the entire input to be replaced with a single space. There is a new parameter, $config["direct_list_nest"], to allow direct descendance of a list in a list.
Parrot and Chirp are user-level tools that make it easy to rapidly deploy wide area filesystems. Parrot is the client component: it transparently attaches to unmodified applications, and redirects their system calls to various remote servers. A variety of controls can be applied to modify the namespace and resources available to the application. Chirp is the server component: it allows an ordinary user to easily export and share storage across the wide area with a single command. A rich access control system allows users to mix and match multiple authentication types. Parrot and Chirp are most useful in the context of large scale distributed systems such as clusters, clouds, and grids where one may have limited permissions to install software.
Release Notes: This release includes a variety of improvements and bugfixes shaken out from using Parrot with a variety of high performance scientific applications, particularly those using MPICH, Python, ROOT, and XRootD. The Chirp server has been significantly reworked into a more robust multi-process architecture with improved support for HDFS and ticket-based authentication.
Sudo (su "do") allows a system administrator to give certain users (or groups of users) the ability to run some (or all) commands as root while logging all commands and arguments. Sudo operates on a per-command basis, it is not a replacement for the shell.
Release Notes: This release adds Esperanto, Italian, and Japanese translations and fixes for the following bugs: time escapes in "log_dir" were broken; IP address/netmask matching only worked for the first address in a net block; NOPASSWD was ignored for denied commands; the DEREF setting in ldap.conf was ignored; a crash in the utmp code; PAM session open/close was done as different users; SSL/TLS LDAP did not work on Debian; and the LOGNAME, USER, and USERNAME environment variables were not preserved in sudoedit mode. visudo no longer assumes all editors support the +linenumber command line argument.
WebCollab is a collaborative Web site for project workgroups. It aims to be easy and intuitive to use without being complicated or graphically intensive.
Release Notes: This version is similar to the former 2.xx series, but has bugfixes and some new features added. The principal change is that the database backend now uses prepared statements and a PHP Data Objects (PDO) interface. WebCollab is now fully UTF-8 only.
Guile is a portable, embeddable Scheme implementation written in C. Guile provides a machine independent execution platform that can be linked in as a library when building extensible programs.
Release Notes: This release adds a new partial evaluator optimizer which performs constant folding, dead code elimination, copy propagation, and inlining, a new (Web client) module, a new define-syntax-rule macro, more helpful "guild help", fewer calls to "stat", the ability for users to install compiled ".go" files, and, as usual, a whole host of bugfixes.
DomCore is a set of PHP Foundation classes which are ready to be extended to give basic capabilities to your applications. It features a powerful template replacement engine, a language engine for I18N, an extended debugging mode, enhanced error and exception management, Java-like programming (you can't use a class attribute without declaring it first), serializable class management, mass file operations (full directory copy and delete), shared memory management, multi-level caches on data sources, and implementation of programation patterns.
Release Notes: The method WATemplate->__toString() has been added to directly print the template resolved. The method WATemplate->getTemplates() has been added to get the list of subtemplates. Some minor bugs have been removed in various DataSources.
NSC is a set of utilities for easy administration of DNS servers. You write very simple configuration files and NSC automatically generates zone files, reverse zone files, and configuration for the BIND. Among other things, it also supports classless reverse delegations and IPv6 addressing. NSC is written in POSIX shell and GNU M4, and it should run on all systems where these two languages are available. Generation of DNS daemon config files is currently limited to BIND 8 or 9, but it's very easy to add your own config file generators for other daemons.
Release Notes: NSC can be now integrated with other fragments of BIND configuration files, making it easier to configure authoritative-only, forwarding-only, and multi-view servers. This has brought several incompatible changes to the syntax of the domain files, hence the increase in major version number. Several other features have been added, most notably that zone serial numbers are no longer incremented if the generated contents of the zone did not change.
evilvte is a terminal emulator. It supports almost everything VTE provides. It also supports tabs, automatic hiding of the tab bar, and the ability to switch encoding at runtime. Configuration is done by editing the source code and recompiling it. The size of a standard stripped binary of evilvte is less than 9 kilobytes.
Release Notes: A "-e" option bug and an input method menu bug were fixed. There's a new configure option to support gtk2 and gtk3 at the same time.
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: The main improvement in this release is the redesign of the stored procedure/function API. With 12 supported RDBMS, which all have their own idea about what is a stored procedure and what is a stored function, it has proven to be a better design to unite them in one single type, org.jooq.Routine. A routine can have a return value as well as OUT parameters. It can be embedded in SQL and used as a field or a table.
