fio is an I/O tool meant to be used both for benchmark and stress/hardware verification. It has support for 19 different types of I/O engines (sync, mmap, libaio, posixaio, SG v3, splice, null, network, syslet, guasi, solarisaio, and more), I/O priorities (for newer Linux kernels), rate I/O, forked or threaded jobs, and much more. It can work on block devices as well as files. fio accepts job descriptions in a simple-to-understand text format. Several example job files are included. fio displays all sorts of I/O performance information, including complete IO latencies and percentiles. Fio is in wide use in many places, for both benchmarking, QA, and verification purposes. It supports Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, OS X, OpenSolaris, AIX, HP-UX, Android, and Windows.

Release Notes: Support for trim as a primary IO directive, the addition of the JSON output format for easy parsing by both humans and computers, and fixes for a Solaris compilation error, gettid on NetBSD, Windows XP/2003 compatibility, engine starvation for extraordinarily long latencies, and fallocate(), netio compatibility, and support for SIGBREAK. The critical error list is now configurable. Three new IO engines were provided: falloc, e4defrag, and Fusion-io atomic write engine. A new sample job file was provided for SSD steady state performance. A segfault race on exit on non-Linux platforms was fixed. There were various other bugfixes and improvements.

Screenshot

GluCat is a library of template classes that model the universal Clifford algebras over the field of real numbers, with arbitrary dimension and arbitrary signature. It implements a model of each Clifford algebra corresponding to each non-degenerate quadratic form up to a maximum set by the user. GluCat classes are designed to be used as template parameters for other template libraries. GluCat includes the PyClical extension module for Python. This implements the Python classes index_set and clifford, which interface to corresponding C++ classes in GluCat.

Release Notes: The PyClical Python extension module now comes with a set of tutorials that guide you through working with Clifford algebra calculations in Python. The GluCat library now supports C++11 and has transcendental functions that are more accurate when used with higher precision arithmetic. The GluCat header files have been reorganized. The default options for ./configure now yield the simplest usable production case. The README and INSTALL files have been completely rewritten.

Release Notes: This patch release adds some usability enhancements, adds a few new features, and fixes over 20 bugs. It is well tested and is very stable. The TopMenuSkin now has an option for auto-hidden or fixed top menu-bar. In auto-hidden mode, the menu is always accessible via a stub on the upper left. For power users, the SpreadSheetPlugin has new functions $ISDIGIT(), $ISLOWER(), $ISUPPER(), $ISWIKIWORD(), and $FILTER(). For programmers, the SetGetPlugin adds a REST interface for setting and querying variables, which is useful for TWiki apps that need to store variables persistently via Ajax calls.
