Release Notes: This release candidate introduces new translations and a few minor features as well as a number of bugfixes.
minidb is a Python module that utilizes the SQLite3 database library in order to store and retrieve Python objects. It utilizes Python's __slots__ mechanism to determine the column names, and uses the class name for table names. Data is always stored as text in the database, but will be converted using the type specified in __slots__ (which therefore has to be a dict).
Release Notes: SQLite databases are now vacuumed when closing the database.
DR14 T.meter is a commandline tool for computing the Dynamic Range of your music according to the procedure used in the offline meter released by the Pleasurize Music Foundation. It is very useful to measure how loud your music is and to understand that a good quality album always has a good dynamic. It's also useful for understanding the effects of the so-called loudness war.
Release Notes: This release fixes a pair of annoying bugs and offers better administration of strange audio files.
pcu is a set of simple command-line utilities to expose the posix_fadvise and mincore syscalls. pcu-fadvise gives the kernel advice on the access pattern for files. This advice can affect all processes by all users accessing those files. pcu-mincore is used to determine which parts of a file are in cache. These utilties are targeted for Linux 2.6, but may work on other operating systems that support the mincore and posix_fadvise syscalls. mincore is not a part of POSIX, and posix_fadvise is uncommon despite being specified by POSIX.
Release Notes: This release adds support for syncfs() on Linux (via the -f flag in pcu-fsync).
Audible TTS reads text aloud from other apps, the clipboard, or from text files. It can get text from applications such as Feedme or K9-Mail, the clipboard (using Copy and Paste), or from files on the MicroSD card. It also reads each sentence using the proper language and voice in mixed texts, without having to select it manually. You must have installed a voice synthesizer (such as PICO or SVOX) and voices for the languages to be used. It currently supports German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Turkish, Russian, Arabic, Korean, Chinese, and Japanese.
Release Notes: This release adds help, rotation, and minor changes.

Release Notes: Several vulnerabilities and many other bugs have been fixed.
Template Data Interface (TDI, /ʹtedɪ/) is a markup templating system written in Python with (optional but recommended) speedup code written in C. Unlike most templating systems, TDI does not invent its own language to provide functionality. Instead, you simply mark the nodes you want to manipulate within the template document. The template is parsed, and the marked nodes are presented to your Python code, where they can be modified in any way you want.
Release Notes: This is the first official beta release.
spectrwm is a minimalistic tiling window manager that tries to stay out of the way so that valuable screen real estate can be used for much more important stuff. It has sane defaults and does not require one to learn a language to do any configuration. It was written by hackers for hackers and it strives to be small, compact, and fast.
Release Notes: This release adds quite a few little fixes (but they add up). It avoids a free on an uninitialized variable by setting optval to NULL, fixes fparseln flags to remove escape characters in the result, fixes an issue with rapid window crossing events being ignored, validates bound spawn programs after conf is loaded, fixes move/resize to bail if the window is destroyed, and fixes the bar clock not getting updated during periods of inactivity.
protobuf-rpc-pro is a Java developer library that provides an RPC layer for Google's Protocol Buffer services. It builds upon Netty for low-level NIO. Features include bidirectional RPC calls from client to server and from server to client. The client and server are equal communicating peers. TCP connection re-use / keep-alive, SSL encryption support, RPC call cancellation, timeout and a pluggable logging facility logging RPC call data in Protocol Buffer format are included.
Release Notes: The primary feature for this release is RPC timeout functionality. Semantics are described in the project's wiki page.
cardme is a Java library implementation of RFC 2426, VCard. It provides Java applications with a way to read and write from and to the VCard file format. The project's goals are to provide a flexible and easy to use library with excellent documentation.
Release Notes: VCards are now read in from a file using UTF-8 encoding. According to RFC-6350, all default charsets in a VCard must be UTF-8. The isEmpty() method in the StringUtil class has been fixed. An issue where unfolding lines with spaces at the folding boundary would result in the loss of the space has been fixed. A unit test case has been added to test for the above bug.
Kolab is a groupware system that provides a comprehensive and flexible solution for workgroups. Email, contacts, and group calendars can be managed via the Web, Windows/Outlook, and Linux/KDE.

Tor-ramdisk is a uClibc-based micro Linux distribution whose only purpose is to host a Tor server in an environment that maximizes security and privacy. Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Security is enhanced in tor-ramdisk by employing a monolithically compiled GRSEC/PAX patched kernel and hardened system tools. Privacy is enhanced by turning off logging at all levels so that even the Tor operator only has access to minimal information. Finally, since everything runs in ephemeral memory, no information survives a reboot, except for the Tor configuration file and the private RSA key, which may be exported and imported by FTP or SSH.
Release Notes: For the i686 and x86_64 ports, Tor was updated to 0.2.3.25, libevent to 2.0.20, and the kernel to 3.6.7 plus Gentoo's hardened-patches-3.6.7-1.extras. The MIPS port also incorporates these changes, but for this architecture, libevent was updated to 2.0.21, while the kernel was kept at vanilla 3.2.5.
JASocket is a lock-free, scalable, and robust server framework with no single point of failure. Servers are run on a cluster of nodes. Servers interact with other servers using mobile agents, which reduces the number of messages and thus reduces the overall system latency. Administration is handled via ssh.
Release Notes: The to command sends a command to another node for execution. The exception command throws an exception.
Arabica is an XML toolkit written in Standard C++. It provides SAX, DOM, XPath, and XSLT implementations. It delivers UTF-8 encoded std::strings or UCS-2 std::wstrings, but can also accommodate custom string types and alternative encodings.
Release Notes: XSLT engine is now, like the rest of Arabica, parameterised on string type. It can be used with std::string, std::wstring, or any arbitrary string type.
4MLinux is a miniature Linux distribution focusing on four capabilities: maintenance (by using it as a system rescue live CD), multimedia (for example, for playing video DVDs), miniserver (using the inetd daemon), and mystery (meaning console games).
Release Notes: The development target for this release has been defined as follows: the relatively small operating system (ca 62 MB LiveCD) must include the newest stable Wine (i.e. 1.4.1), which should be able to open full-screen flash videos (e.g. from YouTube) in the newest stable Firefox (i.e. 17.0). 4MLinux 5.0 Allinone Edition BETA passes this test for many Intel, NVIDIA, and AMD video cards. WinSCP 5.1.1, XChat 2.8.9, and 7-Zip 9.20 are also included.
Cfengine is a tool for setting up and maintaining BSD and System-5-like operating system optionally attached to a TCP/IP network. You can think of cfengine as a very high level language, much higher level than Perl or shell: a single statement can result in many hundreds of operations being performed on multiple hosts. Cfengine is good at performing a lot of common system administration tasks, and allows you to build on its strengths with your own scripts.
Release Notes: Newsworthy features: XML editing capabilities, inheritance of local classes by bundles called using "usebundle", POSIX ACL support, an "outputs" promise type, remote syslog support, VirtualBox support for guest_environment promises, guest_environment promises are supported under OS X, the "depends_on" attribute is now active, for the partal ordering of promises, cf-promises --parse-tree option to parse policy file and dump it in JSON format, namespaces support for bundles and bodies, default arguments for bundles, and a metadata promise type.
