RemoteBox is a graphical tool which lets you administer guests or virtual machines running under VirtualBox on a remote server or even your local machine if desired. You may, for example, have a root server on the Internet, a server at home, or a server at work running VirtualBox but want to have the convenience of managing the guests easily from your local machine. The virtual machines run in headless mode, which means you don't need an active graphical display on the server but you can still connect and view the displays of the guests. The goal of RemoteBox is to provide a GUI that should be familiar to VirtualBox users while allowing them to administer a remote installation of VirtualBox. It does this via the VirtualBox API and SOAP interface, which are exposed when running the VirtualBox Web service. You can also use RemoteBox simply as an alternative interface for managing VirtualBox on your local machine.
Release Notes: Most of a guest's settings can now be changed while the guest is running, reducing the inconvenience of needing to power off the guest. Screenshots can be taken of the guest and saved as PNG images. There are guest icons for Windows 2012 and Solaris 11 as well as status icons for each guest and storage icons on the edit window. Additional defaults are used when creating a new guest including 'recommendedChipset', 'recommendedAudioController', 'recommendedFloppy', and 'recommendedUSB'. There is an SSL certificate verification option. This release also has a number of minor bugfixes and GUI tweaks.
Rescatux is a GNU/Linux rescue CD that comes with Rescapp, a nice wizard that will guide you through your rescue tasks. It can restore Grub to the MBR update a Grub configuration, perform filesystem checks, fix a Windows MBR, and more. Features that can indirectly assist the rescue process include chat programs to let you reach human online help, a share log (automatic pastebin), and a share log that uses formatting appropriate for posting on a forum.
Release Notes: If you selected Rescatux autodetect at boot, it tried to load a 32-bit kernel when you had a 64-bit one and vice-versa. There was another bug that made the manual Rescatux 32-bit and Rescatux 64-bit options unusable; they just showed you kernel panic errors. These two major bugs have been fixed.

It fixes the "getAbsoluteFile" method in the FileUtilities class returning false for files using the HTTP protocol. It adds some new methods that deal specifically with URLs. It allows you to add custom entity resolution to XML parsers (experimental). It ensures that exceptions returned by the SAX handler are sorted by their line number.
CmdOption is a simple annotation-driven command line parser toolkit for Java 5 applications. Everything you need is (at least one) simple configuration object. Each field and method annotated with an CmdOption annotation will be processed. Based on this config, CmdOption is able to parse any command line, guaranteeing the declared specification. The result is directly stored in the given config object. When errors occur, CmdOption gives a meaningful error message. Generated output and validation/error message can be localized.
Release Notes: This release adds localization support for output and configuration. It has enhanced configuration and validation capabilities so that options can require or conflict with other options when selected. It has an additional "AboutLine" to the usage formatter, adds a new URL parser, and makes some other internal improvements. The build system was migrated to SBuild, to build faster and also automatically merge translations and create releases.
astateful is a unique approach to Web development. It incorporates a solid theoretical foundation based on Dynamic Programming in which a Web site is programmed in such in a way that it can be "solved" using a 'top down' or 'bottom up' approach.

Release Notes: A major release culiminating in a fully functional C++ version that uses BSON as the variable storage and scrypt as the encryption and decryption mechanism. Wholesale improvements to both algorithms, as well as a SAX parser in the PHP version to work with malformed XML documents. The C++ version creates a log in BSON format.

Absolute Linux is a lightweight Slackware derivative that uses an Icewm, pcmanfm, ROX-Filer, ivman, and others to create a lightweight yet easy to use distribution. Installation is text-based but simplified, and all packages are installed at once. It can run on a Pentium II and above, including SMP systems. A minimum 128MB RAM is recommended. It features ease of browsing any connected device in pcmanfm, and an auto-popup menu for inserted playable media. "Restricted" codecs are available to those eligible via a root-user installer. There is a large range of software included: Google Chromium (compiled on Absolute), OpenOffice, Mplayer, GIMP, K3B, FileZilla, and many more.
Release Notes: This release uses kernel-polling with a customized and stripped-down version of spacefm, which also gets by without the use of hal or udisks. It is about as lean-running as possible with modern software like udev, NetworkManager, Chrome browser, etc. It allows much administration via sudo as a user, thus diminishing the need to log in as root to get most things done. The caveat is that when you get a password prompt to run a root-only program, you must enter the root password.
Sagasu is a GNOME tool to find strings in multiple files. The user specifies the search directory and the set of files to be searched. Double-clicking on a search result launches a user command that can for example load the file in an editor at the appropriate line. The search can optionally ignore CVS directories. Sagasu is a Japanese word that means "to search."
Release Notes: The checkbox to exclude CVS directories has been replaced with a text field where the user can specify a list of directories to exclude. By default, that list is "CVS .git .hg .svn". The application stores this list in the user's preferences.
