GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disk, CD-ROM, etc.) to another, trying to rescue the good parts first in case of read errors. GNU ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue logfiles, shows logfile contents, converts logfiles to/from other formats, compares logfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a logfile if the rescue is done.
Release Notes: The option "--sector-size" has been added as a synonym of "--block-size". Ddrescue now terminates with an error if an unexpected EOF would discard any successfully read data, and automatically adjusts the logfile to shrinking input devices, like CD-ROMs written in TAO mode. A bug has been fixed which prevented status updating after the system clock had been put back. Control-C no longer overwrites status messages. Generate mode no longer requires the "--force" option. The new chapter "Using ddrescue safely" has been added to the manual.
pyPEG is a quick and easy solution for creating a parser in Python programs. pyPEG uses a PEG language in Python data structures to parse, so it can be used dynamically to parse nearly every context free language. The output is a plain Python data structure called pyAST, or, as an alternative, XML.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug with initializing objects.
zrep provides an easy-to-use program to manage zfs filesystem replication and failover. No configuration files are required. The program is developed under Solaris, but may work with any up to date zfs implementation. The executable is a single script. Initialization does a full data copy, but subsequent syncs are incrementals. It uses internal locking to make sure there is no danger of overlap if you just shove it in cron to run every minute. Design target is more "near-time replication", since the sync can be run every minute or more. However, it could conceivably be used for "backup" purposes as well.
Release Notes: This release adds capability for "pull" updates (zrep refresh), so that it is possible to use zrep in a central backup server capacity. This release also makes invocation of Perl more flexible, to be kinder to non-Solaris OSes.

It app encourages social networking between users from all walks of life, who can tag their favorite locations and post comments about the location. Anyone near that tag can see it on their mobile device.
Release Notes: A major bug was discovered and fixed. The app no longer downloads and uploads the images by default; the user can enable this feature in the Settings Page. Some changes have been made to the server code as well to reflect the change, and backward compatibility has been provided to allow the apps of older versions to function properly.
git-info-bar is a ksh, bash, gitbash, and Git shell plugin that endeavors to provide a fast and pronounced view of various git attributes when you are under the umbrella of a git repository. Its main feature, the 'info bar' (information bar), displays the following information: current branch (in 'red' if on master); current cksum (in 'red' if there are uncommitted changes, and an 'uncommitted changes' message in the message area); and stash count in the message area if you have stashes. It includes an install script and removal scripts. It is currently only tested in Bash, GitBash and ksh93. It was previously named 'bash-git', but the name has been transitioned to 'git-info-bar', as a long-term goal is cross-shell compatibility using a Perl back-end.
Release Notes: There is no need to install this update if you have git-info-bar installed already and it is working ok. However, if you previously tried git-info-bar and you encountered the following error, then this update may resolve the issue: "Unable to get terminal size The TIOCGWINSZ ioctl didn't work". This release has simplified info bar column handling and cleanup.
MultiTail lets you view one or multiple files like the original tail program. The difference is that it creates multiple windows on your console (with ncurses). Merging of 2 or more log files is possible. It can also use colors while displaying the log files (through regular expressions) for faster recognition of what is important. It can also filter lines (again with regular expressions). It has interactive menus for editing given regular expressions and deleting and adding windows. One can also have windows with the output of shell scripts and other software. When viewing the output of external software, MultiTail can mimic the functionality of tools like 'watch'.
Release Notes: This release adds -N, which sets the initial tail lines count for all following inputs. The configuration file parameter min_n_bufferlines was ignored. This release adds a color scheme for 'ADB-logging' (Android).
The libQtCassandra library is an advanced C++ library used to access Cassandra servers. Unlike the basic Cassadra server interface, this C++ library provides separate objects that handle each level of the server data, i.e. the cluster, contexts, table, rows, and cells. It uses Qt and the Qt style for all the classes, which makes it very easy to use if you already know Qt.
Release Notes: Mainly patches, although this version supports reading columns as indexes (i.e. 100 at a time without having to do much work at all, just call readCells() repetitively.) It makes the row and column predicates non-QObjects because they are copied (plus there is really no need for those to be QObjects in the first place).
OpenXava is a framework to develop AJAX JavaEE/J2EE applications rapidly and easily. It allows you to define applications only with POJOs, JPA, and Java 5 annotations. It is feature rich and flexible. It generates JSR-168 portlet applications (Liferay, WebSphere Portal, Jetspeed, etc.).
