GNU cpio copies files into or out of a cpio or tar archive. The archive can be another file on the disk, a magnetic tape, or a pipe. GNU cpio supports the following archive formats: binary, old ASCII, new ASCII, crc, HPUX binary, HPUX old ASCII, old tar, and POSIX.1 tar. The tar format is provided for compatability with the tar program. By default, cpio creates binary format archives, for compatibility with older cpio programs. When extracting from archives, cpio automatically recognizes which kind of archive it is reading and can read archives created on machines with a different byte-order.
Release Notes: The license was changed to the GPLv3. Directory permission handling was changed. Error checking and diagnostics were improved. Exit codes were modified. MinGW builds are now supported. Several bugs were fixed.
prll is a utility for parallelizing the execution of shell functions. It provides a convenient interface for parallelizing the execution of a single task over multiple data files or any other kind of data that you can pass as a shell function argument. It is meant to make it simple to fully utilize a multicore/multiprocessor machine. prll is designed to be used not just in shell scripts, but also in interactive shells. To make the latter convenient, it is implemented as a shell function. Shells are not very good at automatic job management, so prll uses helper programs, written in C. To prevent race conditions, System V Message Queues are used to signal job completion. Standard output is buffered and Semaphores are used to prevent interleaving.
Release Notes: prll_seq, a simple substitute for GNU seq, was added. Five locks are now available to users should they need to synchronize their functions. Another helper function was added to ease passing and splitting of multiple arguments.

Release Notes: Stability fixes, dramatic reduction of resource consumption in some cases, and cool features making Twitter and IRC much more usable: a context menu to retweet, reply to a tweet (or simply double click on the tweet to start a reply), or (un)follow the author of the tweet; tab completion of usernames (Twitter) or nicknames (IRC); and conversations can now be put on hold: close tabs without leaving the conversation, and reopen it from the Contacts window. This is exceptionally useful for IRC users idling in many channels.

GNU Wget is a utility for noninteractive download of files from the Web. It supports HTTP and FTP protocols, as well as retrieval through HTTP proxies. It can follow HTML links, download many pages, and convert the links for local viewing. It can also mirror FTP hierarchies or only those files that have changed. Wget has been designed for robustness over slow network connections; if a download fails due to a network problem, it will keep retrying until the whole file has been retrieved.
Release Notes: Support was added for HTTP/1.1. Persistent connections are used with proxies which support them. The GNU TLS backend now works again and has been made default vs. OpenSSL. Now "--timestamping" and "--continue" work well together. By default, wget now uses the original URL to get the local filename on server redirects, to address the security vulnerability reported as CVE-2010-2252. Portability issues were fixed. Several other minor enhancements and bugfixes were made.

Rocket Propulsion Analysis (RPA) is a tool for the performance prediction of rocket engines. By providing a few engine parameters such as combustion chamber pressure, used propellant components, and nozzle parameters, the program obtains chemical equilibrium composition of combustion products, determines its thermodynamic properties, and predicts the theoretical rocket performance. A robust, proven, and industry-accepted Gibbs free energy minimization approach is used to obtain the combustion composition. It can perform analysis of nozzle flows with shifting and frozen chemical equilibrium, optimization of propellant components mixture ratio for maximum specific impulse of bipropellant systems, altitude performance analysis, analysis of nozzle performance with respect to overexpansion and flow separation, throttled engine performance analysis, estimation of test (actual) nozzle performance, and nested analysis: stepping of up to four independent variables (component ratio, chamber pressure, nozzle inlet conditions, and nozzle exit conditions).
Release Notes: Calculation of additional nozzle stations was added. Calculated thrust was added to the altitude performance table, and calculated thrust (at SL, opt, and vac conditions) was added to the throttled performance table. In both Nested Analysis and Propellant Analysis tools, any of calculated parameters (Is, Tc, c*, Cf) can be plotted on the "parameter vs. O/F ratio" diagram. Calculation of estimated delivered performance was improved.
cdist is a usable configuration management system. It adheres to the KISS principle and is being used in both small and enterprise-grade environments. It is an alternative to other configuration management systems like cfengine, bcfg2, chef, and puppet.
Release Notes: Logging was improved. A --verbose option was added, and the program is now more quiet by default. Bugs with quoting in __user and with false exiting in __addifnosuchline were fixed. Original require="" behavior was restored. Requirements now checks for broken object_ids and aborts. A large amount of refactoring was undertaken and unit testing was introduced.
DocumentBurster is a tool for report distribution: split, merge, email, and FTP your reports.
