MPICH is a robust and flexible implementation of the MPI (Message Passing Interface). MPI is often used with parallel or distributed computing projects. MPICH is a multi-platform, configurable system (development, execution, libraries, etc) for MPI. It can acheive parallelism using networked machines or using mulitasking on a single machine.
Release Notes: This release adds high-performance MPI communication from NVIDIA GPU device memory (to/from other devices and host memory) with IPC, collectives ,and datatype support; CPU binding granularity at socket and numanode level; checkpoint-restart and run-through stabilization with Nemesis; suspend/resume; and enhanced integration with SLURM and PBS. Network Fault Resiliency (NFR) has been added.
WireframeSketcher is a software tool that helps product managers, designers, and developers quickly create wireframes, mockups, and prototypes for desktop, Web, and mobile applications. It’s a standalone application and a plug-in for any Eclipse IDE.
Release Notes: This release switches font size units from points to pixels. It also brings a few improvements and several bugfixes.
Release Notes: This release adds a new template, adds the script "iterator.js", implements a few iterations of refactoring, and adds small bugfixes and improvements.
memcached is a high-performance distributed memory object caching system, generic in nature, but intended for use in speeding up dynamic Web applications by alleviating database load. The memcached server and clients work together to implement one global cache across as many machines as you have.
Release Notes: This release adds the ability to rebalance and reassign slab memory, and adds numerous bugfixes.
The National Library of Medicine Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (ITK) is a software system to support the Visible Human Project. Segmentation is the process of identifying and classifying data found in a digitally sampled representation. Registration is the task of aligning or developing correspondences between data. For example, in the medical environment, a CT scan may be aligned with an MRI scan in order to combine the information contained in both.
Release Notes: This release adds modularization, a simplified accessibility layer, new frameworks for registration and level setting, a refactored finite element framework, video processing support, updated DICOM support, improved support for large microscopy images above 4 GB, better VTK Bridge and WrapITK support, a new deconvolution filtering module, and a new TimeVaryingBSplineVelocityFieldTransform. It has been migrated to GIT.
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: This release adds ticket-based access, preliminary integration with NetCDF, doxygen documentation of the iRODS C API functions, support for FreeBSD, assorted minor improvements, security fixes, and minor enhancements.
This is `iproute', the professional set of tools to control the networking behavior in kernels 2.2.x and later.
Release Notes: This release updates qdisc parameters in sfq and red, adds Netem extensions for shaping and for loss models, adds lots of manual page corrections, adds the QFQ scheduler and the LLDP-to-ethernet type table (along with support for processless network namespaces and L2TPv3 plus L2TP tunneling), improves RED options, and adds assorted bugfixes.
netsniff-ng is a high performance Linux network sniffer for packet inspection. It is similar to analyzers like tcpdump, but without the need to perform system calls for fetching network packets. A memory-mapped area within kernelspace will be used for accessing packets, so there is no requirement for copying them to userspace (a 'zero-copy' mechanism). For this purpose, netsniff-ng is libpcap independent, but nevertheless supports the pcap file format for capturing, replaying, and performing offline analysis of pcap dumps. The project is focused on building a robust, clean, and secure analyzer and utilities that complete netsniff-ng as a support for penetration testing. netsniff-ng can be used for protocol analysis, reverse engineering, and network debugging.
Release Notes: The authors have thrown away the old netsniff-ng 0.5.5 code and rewritten netsniff-ng from scratch. It has even grown into a toolkit, so next to netsniff-ng, the tools trafgen, bpfc, ifpps, flowtop, curvetun, and ashunt are now available.
The Unidata Local Data Manager (LDM) is a collection of cooperating programs that select, capture, manage, and distribute arbitrary streams of data over a network. The system is designed for event-driven data distribution.
Release Notes: This release merges the NOAAPORT and GRIBINSERT packages and adds assorted bugfixes.
IRAF is the Image Reduction and Analysis Facility, a general purpose software system for the reduction and analysis of scientific data. IRAF includes a selection of programs for general image processing and graphics applications, plus a large number of programs for the reduction and analysis of optical astronomy data within the NOAO package. External or layered packages are also available for the analysis of HST, XRAY, and EUV data. IRAF provides a programming environment which includes the Command Language script facility, the IMFORT Fortran programming interface, and the SPP/VOS programming environment in which the portable IRAF system is written.
Release Notes: This release expands MEF files and tables, adds new VO builtin functions, accesses remote data via URLs, adds transparent XML support, desktop messaging, and a new VO toolbox, and removes licensing restrictions.
DataNucleus AccessPlatform is a standards-compliant Java persistence product. It is fully compliant with the JDO1, JDO2, JDO2.1, JDO2.2, JDO3, JPA1, and JPA2 Java standards, and provides a REST API. It complies with the OGC Simple Feature Spec for persistence of geospatial Java types. It allows access to all popular RDBMS available today, together with the MongoDB, LDAP, NeoDatis, JSON, Excel/ODF spreadsheets, XML, BigTable, HBase, and Neo4j databases.
Release Notes: Support for bulk loading of objects has been added to pm.getObjectsById. Update of a Set has been improved to not do a clear+addAll. Persist of a 1-N uni FK collection now uses one less SQL statement for RDBMS. Error reporting when detach fails has been improved. JPA JTA/nonJTA "datasource" persistence properties have been fixed. Non-referential flush process (non-RDBMS datastores) has been fixed to correctly detect newly persisted objects.
