JCards is a Java application designed to store and manage data in any format that the user defines. Instead of having multiple applications/spreadsheets/databases to manage passwords, tasks, shopping lists, etc., JCards allows the user to define a database that contains the fields they want. This is accomplished via an easy to use interface that requires no understanding of SQL or any other database jargon. JCards was initially developed for PDAs, but has now branched into another version that is suitable for the modern desktop environment and includes a number of extra features.
Release Notes: This release adds various bugfixes for minor annoyances.
Lhasa is a Free Software replacement for the Unix LHA tool, for decompressing .lzh (LHA/LHarc) and .lzs (LArc) archives. The backend for the tool is a library, so it can be reused for other purposes. Lhasa aims to be compatible with as many types of lzh/lzs archives as possible. It also aims to generate the same output as the (non-free) Unix LHA tool, so it will act as a drop-in free replacement.
Release Notes: This release adds support for extraction of Unix symbolic links and parsing of Unix-level 0 extended header areas. A decompressor has been added for the "old" PMarc compression algorithm (-pm1-).
Anywhere Board Games (ABG) allows users to play board and card games on the Web in real time on multiple machines (PC, Linux, iPhone, iPad, and Android). ABG runs as a Google+ Hangout App or as a standalone PHP app. Unlike other gaming environments, this one has a peculiar vision: projecting the main board on our table and using laptops or tablets to control players' hands (with other friends joining in remotely). It supports flipping, stacking, rotating, rolling, and shuffling of pieces, so most board and card games are playable.
dupeGuru Music Edition is a tool to find duplicate songs in your music collection. It can scan filenames, tags, or contents. dupeGuru ME is efficient. It can find your duplicate files in minutes, thanks to its quick fuzzy-matching algorithm. dupeGuru ME not only finds filenames and tags that are the same, but it also finds similar ones. For example, dupeGuru ME, with the right settings, can determine that "The White Stripes - Seven Nation Army" and "White Stripe - Seven Nation Armies" are duplicates. dupeGuru ME is customizable. You can tweak its matching engine to find exactly the kind of duplicates you want to find. dupeGuru ME is safe. Its engine has been especially designed with safety in mind. Its reference directory system as well as its grouping system prevent you from deleting files you didn't mean to delete. It lets do whatever you want with your duplicates. Not only can you delete duplicates files that dupeGuru ME finds, but you can also move or copy them elsewhere. You can also easily weed the bad duplicates out, thanks to the Power Marker.

Fotoxx navigates an image collection using a thumbnail browser to choose images to view or edit. Edit functions include brightness, contrast, color, gamma, white balance, tone mapping, red eyes, sharpen, blur, noise suppression, smart erase, trim (crop), resize, rotate, add text, bend/warp, many art effects, HDR, HDF, stack, and panorama. Edit functions use movable curves and sliders. Feedback is live using the whole image. RAW files can be edited and saved with deep color. Areas or objects can be selected using freehand draw, follow edge, and tone matching. Selections can be edited in place with adjustable blending. They can also be cut and pasted into other images. Any metadata can be edited, reported, and searched (filenames, tags, dates, geotags, comments, captions, ratings, etc.). Collections (arbitrary subsets) can be defined and viewed. Batch functions are available for rename, resize/export, RAW conversion, and more.
Release Notes: Geotagged images can be grouped by city/country/date. Clicking on a group will show a thumbnail gallery of the images , and clicking thumbnails allows you to view or edit the images. A 1-click image enhancement function (Voodoo) was added. Thumbnails are now JPEG instead of PNG, providing faster gallery pages that take 1/3 the much space. Thumbnails can use an outside directory instead of subdirectories in the image directories. The toolbar [prev] and [next] buttons pre-load the next file for faster sequential viewing on slow computers. The Flatten distribution function avoids "banding" in bright monotone areas. Two bugs were fixed.
Tor-ramdisk is a uClibc-based micro Linux distribution whose only purpose is to host a Tor server in an environment that maximizes security and privacy. Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Security is enhanced in tor-ramdisk by employing a monolithically compiled GRSEC/PAX patched kernel and hardened system tools. Privacy is enhanced by turning off logging at all levels so that even the Tor operator only has access to minimal information. Finally, since everything runs in ephemeral memory, no information survives a reboot, except for the Tor configuration file and the private RSA key, which may be exported and imported by FTP or SSH.
Release Notes: This release incorporates major changes from upstream to all components of tor-ramdisk. Tor was updated to 0.2.2.36, libevent to 2.0.18, OpenSSH to 6.0p1, BusyBox to 1.20.0, and uclibc to 0.9.33.2, and the kernel was updated to 3.2.11 plus Gentoo's hardened-patches-3.2.11-1.extras. The MIPS port also incorporated these changes, but for this architecture libevent was updated to 2.0.19 and the kernel to 3.2.5.
sigrok-cli is a portable, cross-platform, command-line frontend for sigrok. It supports logic analyzers, oscilloscopes, MSOs, multimeters, sound level meters, various dataloggers and more. It can also decode various protocols, such as SPI, I2C, USB, UART, and many others.
Release Notes: A ChangeLog file was added to the tarball. For the -V option, if "-l 3" or higher is used, the PD description is shown, too. For the -a option, optional/required PD probes are printed. Compilation with "Homebrew" on Mac OS X was fixed. Stacking order doesn't always have to be specified. Only output module or PD output goes to stdout, and everything else goes to stderr. Error handling was improved. A new -A | --protocol-decoder-annotations option was added. The man page was updated.
