Release Notes: This release fixes a critical issue found in 1.4.8 which was caused by CssImportPreProcessor, and adds a couple of other small improvements.
Jkaptive is a simple captive portal without RADIUS (and thus without total security, but at the same time without too much hassle). The reason behind this is because a lot of site administrators don't need tight security; their site is just a café that offers free Internet access on an unsecured WLAN access point connected to the Internet, and they need a ticketing system to make it cumbersome for average people to use this offering without actually buying a single coffee. Jkaptive itself just presents the login page and checks the token. The blocking of unticketed traffic is done through Linux' netfilter. As no proxy server is involved, jkaptive has no performance penalty, nor does it create problems with non-HTTP traffic. Once the token is accepted, jkaptive is out of the way of any network packets completely. For presenting the login page, jkaptive has a built-in Web server, so no additional Web server application is needed.
Release Notes: A resource leak related to file descriptors in the built-in httpd has been found and fixed.
SimThyr is a continuous simulation program for pituitary-thyroid feedback control. Applications of this program cover research, including development of hypotheses, and education of students in biology and medicine, nurses, and patients.
Release Notes: This release adds bugfixes and a new function to determine the portal TRH level.
Topologic is a simple renderer for certain higher-dimensional geometric primitives and some regular 3D shapes. The idea is to make it easy for students of certain higher-dimensional maths and physics topics to visualize the typical primitives in those fields and get a grasp for the topic. Note: the program as such is freeware, while the part of it that deals with the Mathematics to project the geometric shapes to 3-space and 2-space has been released separately under an MIT/X style license.
Release Notes: This release includes support for n-cubes (3D to 7D), n-spheres (3D and 4D), and some dodgy n-simplices (3D to 7D). It also includes support for rendering 3D Klein bagels and Moebius strips.
The WendzelNNTPd is an IPv6-ready Usenet server that aims to be as easy to use as possible. It is portable, supports AUTHINFO authentication, contains ACLs as well as role based ACLs (RBAC), supports invisible newsgroups, and features automatic prevention of double postings. WendzelNNTPd supports MySQL as well as SQlite3 backends.
Release Notes: Besides tiny performance improvements, this release includes bugfixes, of which one is considered important and fixes code that broke attachments.
haveged is a daemon that feeds the /dev/random pool on Linux using an adaptation of the HArdware Volatile Entropy Gathering and Expansion algorithm invented at IRISA. The implementation attempts to be self-tuning on a wide variety of hardware and includes runtime validation testing. The tarball uses the GNU build mechanism and includes a devel sub-package, self test targets, init system options, and spec file samples for building an RPM. haveged may be used independently of the /dev/random interface through the filesystem at the command line. haveged functionality may be incorporated directly into other components directly through the devel sub-package.
Release Notes: A run time test option has been added to haveged that enables the execution of one or both of the principle AIS-31 test suites at haveged initialization and/or continuously during subsequent output. Several other changes have also been made to make haveged work better with both the systemd and sysv init systems.
Editra is a general, extensible, multi-platform text editor with an implementation that focuses on creating a clean and easy-to-use interface with features that aid in code development. Currently, it supports syntax highlighting and variety of other useful features for more than 60 programing languages.
Release Notes: This release fixes the inability to edit file extension associations on Linux systems. It fixes an issue with duplicated @ symbols inserted by the generic completer. It fixes some Unicode handling issues in the log handler. It fixes a bug in Tango art provider fallback code that could end up looking in the Default theme instead of the Tango theme directory for MIME icons. It fixes PyDeadObject errors related to failed destruction calls by AuiManger.
coverity-submit provides easy one-step submission of projects to the Coverity demo server. If you are a registered user of Coverity's self-build server and have the cov-build tools installed locally, this script automates the process of running the tools, shipping the local analysis to a public drop area, and submitting an analysis request to Coverity. It can be configured to store build passwords, local build commands, and other required information for multiple projects so you don't have to remember it - just call the tool and let it manage the details.
Release Notes: Initial release.
Jajuk is a multi-platform music organizer. The main goal is to provide a fully-featured application to advanced users with large or scattered music collections. It supports most audio formats.
Release Notes: Many enhancements have been done for Webradio management, including a new Webradio view. A lot of new options and enhancement have been added like bit-perfect mode, stop after function, manual rating, and many others.
GNU Coreutils are a set of basic file, shell, and text manipulation utilities for the GNU operating system that are expected to exist on every operating system. Previously, they were offered as three individual packages: fileutils, sh-utils, and textutils.
Release Notes: "split" and "truncate" now allow any seekable files in situations where the file size is needed, instead of insisting on regular files. "cp", "mv", "install", "cat", and "split" now read and write a minimum of 64KiB at a time, twice as much as before, to increase performance. A race condition in "cp" was fixed. The behavior of "id" and "groups" was made more consistent. "sort" now diagnoses certain errors much earlier. "split" no longer overwrites its input files. Various other bugs were fixed. "su" is no longer included in this package; it has completely moved to util-linux.
Perl is a high-level, general-purpose programming language that makes easy things easy and hard things possible. It is optimized for scanning arbitrary text files and system administration. It has built-in extended regular expression matching and replacement, a dataflow mechanism to improve security with setuid scripts and is extensible via modules that can interface to C libraries.
Release Notes: Enhancements were made to code features such as "use", which now explicitly enables feature bundles, a more consistent "eval" operator, and a revamped "substr" function. The "__SUB__" sequence now returns a reference to the current subroutine, allowing for recursive subroutines to be written more simply. Support for Unicode 6.1 was improved. Many other minor improvements and bugfixes, along with several deprecations, were made.
phpMyAdmin is a tool intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. It can create, rename, and drop databases, create/drop/alter tables, delete/edit/add fields, execute any SQL statement, manage keys on fields, create dumps of tables and databases, export/import CSV data, and administrate one single database and multiple MySQL servers.
Release Notes: This security release fixes multiple XSS vulnerabilities.
Enc2ly is a small tool for dumping musical information contained in an Encore binary file to a Lilypond text one. Encore is a popular music notation program from GVOX which uses a proprietary data format. Lilypond is a great music engraving system.
Release Notes: This release implements reading lyrics and writing chords in the specific mode for that. It also fixes writing dynamics (hairpins), pedals, and some other symbolic notation. Another fix is for tuplets: now they are separated by groups according to the defining denominator number.
Ghostscript is a processor for PostScript and PDF files. It can rasterize these files to a wide variety of printers, devices for screen preview, and image file formats. Since applications tend to prepare pages for printing in a high-level format such as PostScript, most Unix users with low-level bitmap printers, such as inkjets, use GhostScript as part of the printing process. In addition, Ghostscript is capable of converting PostScript files, functionality comparable to Adobe Acrobat Distiller, but on the command line. In addition, Ghostscript is used for file import and viewing by a great many other applications, including xv, ImageMagick, gimp, and xdvi. Several GUI wrappers for viewing PostScript and PDF files exist, including GSview, ghostview, gv, ggv, and kghostview. This is far from a comprehensive list.
Release Notes: PDF/A-2 support was added to the pdfwrite output device. Suport was added to pdfwrite to be run in "server mode" and for the "%d" format in the OutputFile switch, for writing individual files. The output created by ps2write was modified to support the deficiencies in a range of recent PostScript devices. Support for large numbers of separations was improved for the tiffsep* devices, resolving "unencodable pixels" errors. The devices tiffsep, psdcmyk, and psdrgb gained "downscaler" support. Many other bugfixes, compatibility changes, and incremental improvements were made.
The Gnome Chemistry Utils includes the following programs: a 2D chemical editor (GChemPaint), a chemical calculator (computes raw formule, molar weight, mass composition, and isotopic pattern), a 3D molecule viewer using OpenGL to display molecular models, a crystal structure viewer and editor, a spectrum viewer, and a periodic table of the elements.
Release Notes: This is hopefully the last maintenance release in the 0.12 series. In GChemPaint, View::BuildSVG() and View::BuildEPS() were fixed (they were missing the trailing 0). Loading of arrows inside a group has been fixed.
XiX Music Player is a music player for MP3, Ogg, and FLAC files. It is easy to create and maintain your own playlists. There is an integrated lyric viewer that searches for the lyric of the song you are listening to. If the CD cover is found, it is also shown. You can also rip CD tracks to MP3 or FLAC. Listening to your favorite online radio stations is also possible. The focus is on having fast control of all your music.
Release Notes: It is possible to add songs after the current track playing. Some more errors on an empty Playing Queue have been fixed. Reverse playback of MP3 & FLAC (needs the BassFX library). Replacing songs after updates should work better. Double clicking on the browser brings you to the Playing Queue. Simple Search: search in artist, album, title, genre, and year.
4MLinux is a miniature Linux distribution focusing on four capabilities: maintenance (by using it as a system rescue live CD), multimedia (for example, for playing video DVDs), miniserver (using the inetd daemon), and mystery (meaning console games).
Release Notes: The development target for this release has been defined as follows: the relatively small operating system (ca 65 MB LiveCD) must include the newest stable Wine (i.e. 1.4.1), which should be able to open full-screen flash movies (e.g. from YouTube) in the newest stable Firefox (i.e. 14.0.1). 4MLinux-4.0-allinone-edition beta passes this test for many Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD/ATI video cards. The automatic downloading and installing of some additional components (e.g. Opera 12.01 and LibreOffice 3.5.5) is also possible.
GSmartControl is a graphical user interface for smartctl. It allows you to inspect the hard drive's SMART data to determine its health, as well as run various tests on it.
Release Notes: Adaptec RAID 5805 (possibly other models too), Areca, and 3ware 3w-sas RAID controllers are supported under Linux. Improved and fixed 3ware handling. Intel matrix RAID controllers are fully supported under Windows. Options to show device name and serial number under drive icons. Updated SMART attribute definitions. Warnings have been added for SSD lifetime attributes. The source has been completely documented using doxygen tags. GSmartControl is DPI-aware under Windows. This release fixes other minor bugs and makes minor improvements.
JERL is a system that allows Perl scripts to run within the JVM without requiring an external version of Perl.
Release Notes: A sample Eclipse project has been added to downloads. Jars have been updated to have a jarred version of the perlVM wrapper.
dupeGuru Picture Edition is a tool to find duplicate pictures on your computer. dupeGuru PE is efficient, thanks to its quick fuzzy matching algorithm. Not only can dupeGuru PE find exact matches, but it can also find duplicates among pictures of different kind (PNG, JPEG, GIF, etc.) and quality. dupeGuru PE is customizable. You can tweak its matching engine to find exactly the kind of duplicates you want to find. The Preference page of the help file lists all the scanning engine settings you can change. dupeGuru PE 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 pictures you didn't mean to delete. dupeGuru PE supports JPG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, BMP, and PSD formats. All these formats can be compared together. Not only can you delete the duplicate pictures dupeGuru PE finds, but you can also move or copy them elsewhere. You can also easily weed the bad duplicates out, thanks to the Power Marker.
Release Notes: This release adds “Export to CSV”. It adds “Replace with symlinks” to complement “Replace with hardlinks”. An “Exif Timestamp” column has been added. dupeGuru now tells how many duplicates were affected after each re-prioritization operation. Longest/Shortest filename criteria in the re-prioritize dialog. A bug where “Reset to Defaults” in the Columns menu wouldn’t refresh menu items’ marked state has been fixed. A bug where outdated picture cache entries would result in false matches has been fixed. A Brazilian localization has been added. The Russian localization has been improved.
SMTP4PHP is a collection of PHP classes dedicated for composing and sending multipart/mixed email messages quickly and easily, with or without embedded images and/or attachments.
Release Notes: An improved SMTP connect method.
storeBackup is a backup utility that stores files on other disks. It's able to compress data, and recognize copying and moving of files and directories (deduplication), and unifies the advantages of traditional full and incremental backups. It can handle big image files with block-wise changes efficiently. Depending on its contents, every file is stored only once on disk. Tools for analyzing backup data and restoring are provided. Once archived, files are accessible by mounting file systems (locally, or via Samba or NFS). It is easy to install and configure. Additional features are backup consistency checking, offline backups, and replication of backups.
Release Notes: storeBackup can validate your backup via checksums. With storeBackupCheckSource.pl, it can also validate unchanged files in the source directory against checksums in the backup to recognize e.g. bit rot. RC2 also includes some bugfixes.
Poppler is a PDF rendering library derived from xpdf. It has been enhanced to utilize modern libraries, and new features have been added. It also provides basic command line utilities.
Release Notes: Empty passwords are now also attempted in addition to no (NULL) passwords before failing to decrypt a document. Various fixes and enhancements have been made for SplashOutputDev. Several fixes have been made for PSOutputDev. The pdfseparate utility now returns 0 on success.
Tree Generator is a .NET library for generating 3D models of trees and forests.
Release Notes: This is the first version with tree generation.
