Bluelog is a Bluetooth site survey tool, designed to tell you how many discoverable devices there are in an area as quickly as possible. Bluelog differs from most Bluetooth scanners in that it prioritizes speed of reporting over anything else (i.e. it doesn't spend time trying to pull detailed data from a device) and doesn't require any user intervention to function. As the name implies, its primary function is to log discovered devices to file rather than to be used interactively. Bluelog could run on a system unattended for long periods of time to collect data. In addition to basic scanning, Bluelog also has a unique feature called "Bluelog Live", which puts results in a constantly updating Web page which you can serve with your HTTP daemon of choice.
Release Notes: This is a minor release in response to the Linux 3.0.x bug that prevents Bluetooth scanning from working. Bluelog will now give a descriptive error message when failing on a 3.0.x system.
JPPF makes it easy to parallelize computationally intensive tasks and execute them on a Grid.
Release Notes: This release brings incredible improvements in ease of use, stability, reliability and flexibility. The configuration was simplified and improved. Job recovery was improved and job failover was added on the client side. New, fully documented class loading extensions were added. New extension points are now available. The administration console, management, and monitoring features have received new capabilities and improvements. Four full-fledged examples applications were added.
Jipes is a Java library that allows you to efficiently compute audio features. Possible uses for these features are general music information retrieval (MIR) applications or, more specifically, personal music software. Unlike many other digital signal processing (DSP) libraries or frameworks, Jipes is not meant for real time processing of a single audio stream that is manipulated and eventually played back. Instead, it focuses on efficiently executing mutiple processing pipelines that transform a signal into a feature or feature set. Since Jipes focuses on features instead of the raw, untyped signal streams, it supports rich types to be used, where other frameworks only offer arrays of raw data. Also, by using Java generics, many core interfaces and classes can be typed to whatever class you see fit for the purpose. However, Jipes also comes with useful pre-defined types and support for raw arrays.
Release Notes: This release features a couple of small performance improvements, mainly through the re-use of buffers.
Guile is a portable, embeddable Scheme implementation written in C. Guile provides a machine independent execution platform that can be linked in as a library when building extensible programs.
Release Notes: New features include Cross-compilation, backwards compatible local-eval, syntax-parameters, new macros 'when' and "unless', default values for fluids, garbage collector tuning, a current-warning-port, locale-aware command line parsing, and of course the usual host of bugfixes.
Erasm++, the Embedded Runtime Assembler in C++, is an Embedded Domain Specific Language (EDSL) in C++ for runtime code generation on Intel 64/IA-32 architectures. It supports complete compile-time syntax checking, and its code generators run very quickly because necessary data are computed statically. Also included are GenericDsm, a fast and generic instruction decoder library which supports "pattern matching" against the decoded instructions, and MetaPrelude, a Haskell-like lazy metaprogramming library that helps implementing EDSLs in C++.
Release Notes: This release fixes bugs in the demo programs and the manual.
The ATLAS (Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software) project is an ongoing research effort focusing on applying empirical techniques in order to provide portable performance. It provides C and Fortran77 interfaces to a portably efficient BLAS implementation, as well as a few routines from LAPACK.
Release Notes: This release updates the API of the test harness to work with current LAPACK. It reworks LAPACK bindings accordingly (which breaks compatibility with versions of LAPACK prior to 3.4.0). There are assorted bugfixes.
GNU libmicrohttpd is a small C library for embedding HTTP server functionality into other applications. It is reentrant, fast, supports HTTP 1.1, and permits listening on multiple ports. The API is simple and still powerful enough to allow programmers to use the entire HTTP feature set. SSL/TLS support is available as an option.
Release Notes: This release fixes handling of certain (rare) boundary formats in the post processor (now tolerating quotes and garbage data before multi-part boundaries). On systems where "sin_len" is part of "struct sockaddr" (such as FreeBSD), the field is now properly initialized.
Orfeo Toolbox (OTB) is a high resolution remote sensing image processing library. It contains a set of algorithmic components which allow the user to capitalize on methodological know how, and therefore use an incremental approach to profit from the results of methodological research. OTB is made of a set of basic elements (a C++ class API) and utilities (independent programs built upon the base API).
Release Notes: Large JPEG2000 file (Pleiades-like) support and Pleiades metadata handling. Efficient JPEG2000 visualization and ROI decompression tools in Monteverdi. A revamp of otb applications in a generic and scalable framework: launch applications from the command line, from an auto-generated QT GUI, from Python, from within QGis, etc. There are many new algorithms: Dimensionality Reduction (ICA, PCA, MNF, MAF, etc.), change detection (MAD), Hyperspectral Unmixing, elevation map from stereo data, compare segmentation with a ground truth (Hoover), etc. There are various bugfixes.
openpom is a Web interface based on NDO for Nagios or Icinga. It allows you to view almost everything about Nagios or Icinga in a single page: alert, ack, downtime, comment. You can also interact with Nagios or Icinga through ack, downtime, comment, disable, and reset buttons. You can filter on hosts and services states (such as critical, warning, unknown, ok, or outage). The status popin allows you to display graphs, either the ones from Nagios (trends.cgi) or custom ones based on RRD (such as pnp4nagios).
Release Notes: New major features: advanced filtering, new levels and filters, disable check, more information on status popin, history popup by host/service, more configuration options, and the addition of a queue to the external command script. Many bugs have been corrected.
GriF is a collaborative grid framework to support computational chemistry applications. It is meant to be used as a tool to facilitate massive grid calculations and also to improve scientific collaboration. Accordingly, GriF facilitates profiling the users of grid communities in order to systematically evaluate the work carried out in a grid and to foster its sustainability.
Release Notes: This major update includes the ability to combine the 'Parameter Study' running modality (in order to distribute in parallel on the Grid the same program within different inputs) within that of 'Workflow'. Accordingly, now you can run multiple Workflows on the Grid concurrently.
Kwatee Agile Deployment is a lightweight automated server software deployment tool targeted at Independent Software Vendors and Cloud Service Providers. Designed for the flexible needs of agile teams, Kwatee installs or updates PHP sites, Java Web apps, Windows services, n-tier applications, etc. in your local network or in the cloud and on virtually any operating system. It shortens software update delivery projects by an order of magnitude but also benefits developers, testers, and technical support in their daily activities.
Release Notes: Minor enhancements and bugfixes.
Fabula is a Python game engine suitable for adventure, role-playing, and strategy games and digital interactive storytelling. It offers a client-server architecture, an event-based protocol, multiplayer and networking capabilities, a multi-threaded server, an abstract, visualization-agnostic model of a game world, an asset manager, and a plugin system. Gameplay can be recorded and played back. The code is well documented and runs on Linux and MS Windows (it should work on OS X, too, but this has not yet been tested). Fabula can be used as a library to develop your own games. As an alternative, you can use the included Pygame-based graphical editor and the default game engine.
Release Notes: Improved room and multiplayer handling in the server. In the client, the scrolling amount is now based on the framerate. There now is a check for window focus before the scrolling. The client now centers the room plane on the player Entity, while snapping to the display edges. When performing PickUp and Drop, all eight positions surrounding the player are considered now. Exception handling has been improved; Fabula exits cleanly in most cases now. Many minor changes, fixes, cleanups, and a documentation update.
SafeSquid is a content filtering proxy server. It supports 'profiled' Internet access, a browser based interface, very fast throughput, DNS caching, content caching, pre-fetching, bandwidth control, virus scanning, ICP, CARP, and ICAP clients, source, target, and time-based granular firewall style rules to allow or deny content like music, videos, Flash and Java applets, messengers, chats, cookies, ActiveX, scripts, etc., remote authentication, real-time text and image analysis for blocking pornography, and an URL filter.
Release Notes: Contains critical bugfixes and enhancements. Has a completely new Pornographic Image Filtering technology. Has a completely new internal log-rotation mechanism. A memory leak caused in the master-slave operation has been fixed. Response time to new incoming connections is now significantly lower. Can now give assured service for environments with 1000 concurrent connections. SSO authentication responds with reduced latency and memory utilization. Serves content from cache at a significantly higher speed. Support for ICAP servers that demand preview is included.
zlib is designed to be a free, general-purpose, legally unencumbered, lossless data-compression library for use on virtually any computer hardware and operating system. The zlib data format is itself portable across platforms. Unlike the LZW compression method used in Unix compress(1), the compression method currently used in zlib essentially never expands the data. (LZW can double or triple the file size in extreme cases.) zlib's memory footprint is also independent of the input data and can be reduced, if necessary, at some cost in compression.
Release Notes: Many minor bugfixes and enhancements were made.
ODB is a compiler-based object-relational mapping (ORM) system for C++. It allows you to persist C++ objects to a relational database without having to deal with tables, columns, or SQL and without manually writing any mapping code. The C++ code that performs the conversion between persistent classes and their database representation is automatically generated by the ODB compiler. The ODB compiler is a real C++ compiler except that instead of producing assembly or machine code, it generates portable C++, which can in turn be compiled by any C++ compiler. ODB is not a framework. It does not dictate how you should write your application. Rather, it is designed to fit into your style and architecture by only handling C++ object persistence and not interfering with any other functionality.
Release Notes: Major new features in this release are support for the Microsoft SQL Server database, including updates to the Boost and Qt profiles, support for database schemas (database namespaces), and the ability to define composite value types as C++ class template instantiations.
Mnemo Note Manager is the Horde notes/memos application. It provides Web-based notes and freeform text in a way similar to the PalmOS Note application and shared notepads. It requires the Horde Application Framework and a SQL database for backend storage.
Release Notes: This release adds a missing method required for synchronization.
Kronolith is the Horde calendar application. It provides a stable and featureful individual calendar system with integrated collaboration and scheduling features. It makes extensive use of the Horde Framework to provide integration with other applications. It implements a solid, stand-alone calendar system, allowing repeating events, all-day events, custom fields, keywords, shared calendars, iCalendar support, generation of free/busy information, and managing multiple users through Horde Authentication.
Release Notes: This release fixes the migration script. It has improved attendee auto-completion.
xosview is the classic system monitoring tool. It displays statistics such as CPU usage, load average, memory, swap space, network usage and more in an X window.
Release Notes: This release fixes support for the borderwidth resource. This is the first Freecode announcement in several years.
Strategico is an engine for running statistical analysis over groups of time series. It can manage one or more groups (projects) of time series: by default, you can get data from a database or CSV files, normalize them, and then save them inside the engine. The first statistical analysis implemented inside Strategico is the "Long Term Prediction": it automatically finds the best model that fits each time series. Some of the models implemented are mean, trend, linear, exponential smoothing, and Arima. Strategico is scalable: the statistical analysis over each time series (of a project) can be run separately and independently. It is suggested that you set up an HPC Cluster (High Performance Computing) and/or use a resource scheduler like slurm. It is developed with R, one of the most famous statistical languages.
Release Notes: Full Web console support was added. Project configuration files are now automatically generated. Full Web and dynamic reporting was implemented.
GnuPG (the GNU Privacy Guard or GPG) is GNU's tool for secure communication and data storage. It can be used to encrypt data and to create digital signatures. It includes an advanced key management facility and is compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet standard as described in RFC2440. As such, it is meant to be compatible with PGP from NAI, Inc. Because it does not use any patented algorithms, it can be used without any restrictions.
Release Notes: A space separated fingerprint is now accepted as a user ID. This allows you to copy and paste the fingerprint from the key listing. Support for the original HKP keyserver was removed. The trustdb is now rebuilt after changing the option --min-cert-level. JPEG detection was improved. More VMS patches are now included. File locking was made more portable. The 32-bit variant of the mingw-w64 toolchain is now supported. Minor bugs were fixed.
