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: This release fixes __apt_ppa (to also remove the [ppa-name].list file, if empty) and __group (it referenced the wrong variable name), adds initial support for virtual packages to __package_apt and a new dependency resolver to Core, supports Amazon Linux in Explorer and __package_yum, and adds the new Types __rvm, __rvm_gem, __rvm_gemset, and __rvm_ruby.
Movgrab is a command-line movie downloader for sites like YouTube. It has no dependencies; everything that's needed should be there in the tar.gz package. Movgrab can connect through an HTTP proxy, can output the download to stdout for piping into another program, and can fork into the background to free up the console. When forked into the background, its progress can still be seen in a ps list.
Release Notes: This release adds "Bloomberg" and "Discovery Channel", fixes Mobango and Redbalcony, and adds many minor bugfixes.
Zorp is a proxy firewall suite with its core architecture is built around today's security demands: it uses application level proxies, is modular and component based, uses a script language to describe policy decisions, makes it possible to monitor encrypted traffic, lets you override client actions, and lets you protect your servers with its built in IDS capabilities.
Release Notes: This release fixes passphrase handling of trusted CA private keys and removes support for obsolete Linux versions and Solaris.
Quilt is a set of scripts to manage a series of patches by keeping track of the changes each patch makes. Patches can be applied, un-applied, refreshed, etc. The key philosophical concept is that your primary output is patches, not ".c" files or ".h" files, so patches are the first-class object here. It was originally based on Andrew Morton's patch scripts published on the Linux kernel mailing list a while ago, but has been heavily modified since then.
Release Notes: Bugs were fixed in the setup and mail commands.
JCPP is a complete, compliant, standalone, pure Java implementation of the C preprocessor. It is intended to be of use to people writing C-style compilers in Java using tools like sablecc, antlr, JLex, CUP, and so forth. It has been used to successfully preprocess much of the source code of the GNU C library.
Release Notes: This release has been relicensed to the Apache license, fixes the #line offset and whitespace bugs, adds the ability to parse more text into values, and migrates to github.
web2ldap is a full-featured Web-based LDAPv3 client written in Python. It is designed to run either as with stand-alone built-in Web server or under the control of another Web server with FastCGI support (e.g. Apache with mod_fastcgi). It has support for various LDAPv3 bind methods and a powerful built-in schema browser. HTML templates are supported for displaying and editing entries, and LDIF templates can be used for quickly adding new entries. A built-in X.509 parser displays a detailed view of certificates and CRLs with active links.
Release Notes: This is the first release candidate, with several fixes.
The GNU Gatekeeper is a free H.323 gatekeeper based on the OpenH323 project. You can use it to manage a Voice-over-IP network and let endpoints (e.g., Netmeeting) communicate through symbolic names. It also has an external interface for billing and other applications. It runs on a number of Unix versions (including Linux and Solaris) and Windows.
Release Notes: This bugfix release fixes three rare bugs.
MetaFTPD is an FTP server/proxy with many features, including "MODE Z" compressed file transfers, file locking, chrooting, data-connection/firewall scripts, XSHA and XMD5 commands, and transparent proxying.
Release Notes: This release adds bugfixes for Authentication and Hashing and for a Makefile bug.
Alaya is a primitive chrooting Web server with basic WebDAV support. It can serve HTTPS and HTTP, and can authenticate using PAM, /etc/shadow, /etc/passwd, or using its own authentication files that allow for 'native' users that only have access to alaya content. It's intended to be a simple method of sharing content over WebDAV, and though it can be configured with a config file, it's easy to configure by command-line switches alone. Alaya always chroots to ensure that malicious users can't use '..' within a URL to access unintended documents, and that users can't accidentally leave documents in places outside of the chroot. It has a 'ChHome' mode that chroots users into their home directory and serves content from there. It supports .cgi scripts out of a trusted path (so not from within the chrooted WebDAV share) and read-only shared directories that are outside of the chroot (allowing access to shared content when in ChHome mode).
Release Notes: This release adds Gzip HTTP compression for downloads and directory listings, a major "native authentication" bugfix, and a proxy performance bugfix.
Bcfg2 helps system administrators produce a consistent, reproducible, and verifiable description of their environment, and offers visualization and reporting tools to aid in day-to-day administrative tasks. It is based on an operational model in which the specification can be used to validate and optionally change the state of clients, but in a feature unique to bcfg2 the client's response to the specification can also be used to assess the completeness of the specification. Using this feature, bcfg2 provides an objective measure of how good a job an administrator has done in specifying the configuration of client systems. Bcfg2 is therefore built to help administrators construct an accurate, comprehensive specification. Bcfg2 has been designed from the ground up to support gentle reconciliation between the specification and current client states. It is designed to gracefully cope with manual system modifications. Bcfg2 can also enable the construction of complex change management and deployment strategies.
Release Notes: This is primarily a bugfix release, with over two dozen reported bugs and dozens more unreported bugs fixed. The only significant change from 1.2.0 is that regular expression support in Rules is now optional, and off by default.
Release Notes: The TCPDF license and README.TXT files were updated.
