Release Notes: A new plotting library can be used (qwt) instead of the gnuplot one; select it via the ccw_setup.py utility. ADF and Firefly parsing have been improved. Parsed text can now be colored, and the best SCF energies can be printed. There are many subtle improvements and bugfixes.
MDIFramework provides a ready-to-use architecture to ease the creation MDI-style applications in Java. It takes care of the overall architecture of the main window of the application, with a tabbed architecture, the presence of an HTML printable message area, and so on. It provides a generic API to manage lengthy actions, keeping the interface responsive, and taking care that actions are performed one at a time, without having to bother about it. It can add metadata to already opened files. It manages loading and unloading of external plugins at runtime.
Release Notes: This release adds two methods in the FileProperties class that redirect to the MetaData class. It adds several methods in the AbstractMDIApplication class and the TabbedApplication interface to close the currently selected tab, all tabs, or all tabs except the currently selected one. It renames the getprefroot method in the ConfigurationManager class to have a more readable name.
TheSSS (The Smallest Server Suite) is a lightweight server suite distributed as a live CD. It is designed for system administrators who need a small (less than 30MB) set of server software for small local area networks. The supported servers are FTP, HTTP, SFTP, SSH, and Telnet.

reposurgeon is a tool for editing version control repository history. It enables risky operations that version control systems don't want to let you do, such as editing past comments and metadata and removing commits. It works with any version control system that can export and import git fast-import streams, including git, hg, bzr, CVS, and RCS. It can also read Subversion dump files directly and can thus be used to script production of very high-quality conversions from Subversion to any supported DVCS.
Release Notes: Ignores are moved among git/hg/bzr ignore files (but not yet translated). conversion.mk has been added to the distribution, describing a typical workflow. A bug that could result in incorrect timezone handling in git dates has been fixed.
uma::bson is a DOM-style C++ API for reading/writing BSON data. Unlike the MongoDB C++ API, which exposes a read-only interface with a separate interface for creating a BSON representation, this API allows reading/writing on the existing data. The API is designed primarily for serialising/deserialising BSON data to/from streams (files, socket connections, etc.).
Release Notes: This release downgrades sources from C++11 to C++98 for use in older systems and mobile devices. The C++11 bases sources have been moved to a branch in the project subversion repository. This release also works with the Windows 7/MSVS 2010 64-bit build.

Release Notes: Bloom filter support has been added for the ADC protocol, and various bugs have been fixed.
OpenSearchServer is a stable, high-performance search engine and a suite of high-powered full text search algorithms. Documents can be indexed in sixteen languages. Multi-lingual analyzers slice sentences into words, then run lemmatisation algorithms on words based on the document's language. Numerous document formats are supported, such as XML, HTML/XHTML, PDF, Word, PowerPoint, RTF, OpenOffice, plain text, MP3/4, Ogg, FLAC, etc. The Web interface, built around the Zkoss framework, provides an easy way to manage OSS. The integration is fast using the PHP client or the API (XML over HTTP). The crawlers of OpenSearchServer go through Web sites, file systems, and databases to rapidly and easily build your index.
Release Notes: This release fixes an issue with the optimization task when it is launched by the Web crawler. It is now possible to make a replication between two instances running on non-identical operating systems (like Windows and Linux). Several HTML parser configurations can now be set up on one index. Crawlers can run forever or only once. The locking issue has been identified and fixed.

FeResPost is a library that allows the rapid development of small programs for the post-processing of Nastran or Samcef finite element results. The library allows easy manipulation of finite element models, groups, and results. Efficient post-processing is possible because the time-consuming operations are written in C/C++. The library is distributed as a COM component, a .NET assembly, as well as a Ruby compiled extension.
Release Notes: Correction of a few minor bugs. Some internal stuff has been modified.
libquickmail is a library intended to give C/C++ developers a quick and easy way to send email from their applications. It supports multiple To/Cc/Bcc recipients and multiple MIME attachments without size limitation.

Release Notes: This release adds features to allow sending attachments from memory. Multiple recipients are listed in a single To/Cc header line (instead of one header line per recipient). An initialization function has been added (needed for Windows winsock initialization).
Texmaker integrates many tools needed to develop documents with LaTeX in just one application.
Release Notes: A bug in the shortcut of the "quick build" command has been fixed.
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: A bugfix for generating database diagrams on Linux.

pyBit uses AMQP to create a distributed, cross-platform buildd toolkit to build packages using a collection of buildds, direct from various VCS clients. It is intended to support rapidly evolving software collections, and can support multiple VCS frontends and multiple build backends. Cross building is expected to be supported for some backends. The initial backend uses dpkg for Debian. pyBit includes support for cancelling selected builds and using multiple buildd clients per architecture, per platform, and per suite.
