It converts between different, extensible data formats (currently netcdf, NcML, grib1/2, metgm, wdb, and felt). It enables you to change the projection and interpolation of scalar and vector grids. It makes it possible to subset the gridded data and to extract only parts of the files. For simple usage, Fimex also comes with the command line program fimex.
Release Notes: This release allows you to add quality-masks, e.g. sea-land mask, from external resources. It is also possible to merge high-resolution data into model-results with low-resolution. This release has been successfully compiled on Mac OS X, and it has been tested to work with felt-files in the archive flavour.
getmail is intended as a simple, secure, and reliable replacement for fetchmail. It retrieves email (either all messages, or only unread messages) from one or more POP3, SPDS, or IMAP4 servers (with or without SSL) for one or more email accounts, and reliably delivers into qmail-style Maildirs, mboxrd files, or through external MDAs (command deliveries) specified on a per-account basis. getmail also has excellent support for domain (multidrop) mailboxes, including delivering messages to different users or destinations based on the envelope recipient address.
Release Notes: This version retrieves Gmail metadata (labels, thread ID, message ID) via an IMAP extension and records it in new message headers, so it is available to filters or for the user's reference.
SchemaCrawler is a Java API which makes working with database metadata as easy as working with ordinary Java objects. It is also a database schema discovery and comprehension and schema documentation tool. You can search for database schema objects using regular expressions, output the schema and data in a readable text format, and find potential design issues with lint . The output is designed to be diff-ed against other database schemas. SchemaCrawler supports almost any database which has a JDBC driver, but for convenience is bundled with drivers for some commonly-used RDBMS systems. SchemaCrawler works with any operating system which supports Java.
Release Notes: The SchemaCrawler API has changed from 8.x versions. All API calls now return collections instead of arrays. Schemas are no longer containers, but tags for database objects. Tables and routines (that is, stored procedures and functions) are available directly on the database, and there are new finders to search by schema. SchemaCrawler now allows queries to be specified on the commandline. The -procedures switch has been renamed -routines. There are shorter and more standard (or Unix-like) synonyms, such as -u (for -user), -c (for -command), and -o (for -output).
Spack is a standalone package manager with its own CPIO-based package format but aiming to keep total compatibility with Slackware Linux. Written in POSIX shell as much as it makes sense, it attempts to provide a fairly complete toolkit to build, install, remove, list, retrieve, and arrange your packages. It can be used as an alternative to Slackware's pkgtools, just to independently and properly manage your local software on any distribution, or as the main package manager of the distribution you build yourself.
Release Notes: This release fixes two little bugs. The first caused spackedit to fail when a package was given with a relative path. The other caused spackfind to not match the absolute paths when "^" was omitted in the beginning of the requests.
Private Logistics is a partial personal information management (PIM) suite some highly useful tools such as a scratchpad, a calendar, and an option-rich todo list. All are designed to be sensitive to privacy and to keep your private data just where it belongs.
Release Notes: This release adds debugging and enhanced/added features like in-place editing and more options for repeating events after dogfooding.
xc is a simple and handy substitute for sudo. It parses the /etc/xc.conf file, containing a list of identifiers, accesses, and commands. If an identifier (given as an argument to xc) matches the corresponding access (i.e., user or group), the related command is executed. The user can only see the identifiers he can execute, and the real command attached to the identifier remains invisible to him.
Release Notes: This release fixes a few bugs, adds ssu, and adds a better installation process.
webmanner is a man page-to-HTML converter.
Release Notes: webmanner is now mostly functional, has a bunch of interesting options, and recognizes formatting under OS X/Darwin. It cannot recognise the formatting for Linux yet, however, but can generate pages anyway.
Mathomatic is a portable, general-purpose computer algebra system (CAS) that can solve, differentiate, simplify, combine, and compare algebraic equations, perform standard, complex number, modular, and polynomial arithmetic, etc. It does some calculus and is very easy to compile/install, learn, and use. The symbolic math application with a simple command-line interface is designed to be a colorful algebra calculator that is reliable, responsive, and convenient to use. The symbolic math library is lightweight and easy to include in other software, due to being written entirely in C with no additional dependencies.
Release Notes: This release adds many set command option changes and improvements, and they should all be backwards compatible. Integer type variables simplify better now. The read command now lets you set and get the contents of the current directory, for convenience. "Repeat approximate" is now similar to the calculate command. There are no plans to add the calculate command to the symbolic math library. Repeated warnings are suppressed.
Napata CMS is a CMS for sites that are biased towards sharing information, primarily with text. It is a little wiki-like, but not a wiki. The CMS's frontpage almost resembles a blog's homepage.The script has three dedicated variants depending on the syntax in use: Mediawiki-like Markup variant, Markdown variant, and WYSIWYM variant.
