Download Website 25 Dec 04:50 Submin 2.1.0


Submin provides a Web-based admin interface to your Subversion and Git repositories. Its features include user/group management, path permission management, the ability to create svn repositories and managing commit email messages. For Subversion, authentication is done with htpasswd/svn authz, so it can use the same login information as apache2/svn (and trac). For Git, ssh is used, and the login information is synched whenever a change is made. The Web interface can also work with NGINX/uWSGI, but the Subversion part only works with Apache.

Release Notes: This release improves stability and performance, and has some minor feature additions. The most important new features are the new Diagnostics page, separate Apache config file generation, Git support features, and a 'quickstart' binary for easy setup.

Download Website 25 Dec 03:34 feh 2.8


feh is a fast, lightweight image viewer that uses imlib2. It is command line-driven and supports multiple images through slideshows, thumbnail browsing or multiple windows, and montages or index prints using TrueType fonts to display file information. Advanced features include fast dynamic zooming, progressive loading, loading via HTTP (with reload support for watching webcams), recursive file opening (slideshow of a directory hierarchy), and mouse wheel and keyboard control.

Release Notes: Adds %V format specifier (feh process ID). The --scale-down option will no longer be applied to the thumbnail window. --image-bg is now also respected when setting a wallpaper using --bg-max / --bg-center. An image deletion bug related to --cycle-once was fixed. Quick, low-offset drags are now detected as clicks to aid graphics tablet users, whose clicks were misdetected as drags. --start-at and 'z' (jump_random) now work in thumbnail mode as well.

Download Website 25 Dec 03:32 CVSps 3.2


CVSps collect changesets from CVS repositories. It can be used either by humans to inspect changesets or as an exporter from CVS to other version control systems - it can be told to emit a fast-export stream to standard output. The code has been end-of-lifed and using cvs-fast-export instead is recommended.

Release Notes: Deprecation warning: non-fast-export reporting may be removed in the future. The tool now always runs in cvs_direct client mode for better performance. Multiple tags per revision will be reported (previously only the latest was). Local CVS commands are no longer used. Caching and -x are gone. The ever-malfunctioning -A option has been removed.

Download Website 25 Dec 03:31 ntdisp 0.4.0


ntdisp, short for NtD In System Programming, is a system for programming LPC and STM32 (and possibly other) embedded devices. It provides three different frontends, a GObject-based library (for developers), a commandline utility (for computer geeks), and a GTK+3 frontend (for less geeky users).

Release Notes: A new GUI front-end based on GTK+3 has been added. It exposes a subset of the operations available from the CLI command and the library. The UU encoding and decoding have been implemented inside the library, allowing it to drop the dependency on GMime. The custom log functions have been dropped in favor of a new approach based on the GLib logging system, which allows more flexibility with less code. A basic framework based on what is provided by autotools has been added.

Download Website 25 Dec 03:30 Zoom Profiler 3.0.1


Zoom is a low-overhead graphical and command line profiler for Linux. Profiles are system-wide, precise down to the instruction level, and capture complete backtraces of C/C++/ObjC/Fortran/Assembly code. This lets you see exactly where time was spent, what code was running (user or kernel), and how that code was called. Drill down into a specific symbol, and Zoom shows source and assembly annotated with general and processor-specific tuning advice. It saves profiles as a single, self-contained session file that can be emailed or attached to bug reports. This lets you share what you find with colleagues or archive it for later review. Zoom also supports remote network profiling and scripting, making it ideal for embedded or server systems and automated workflows.


Release Notes: This releases fixes the option to disable gathering kernel symbols on small systems. It also includes several user interface and performance enhancements.

That is, its design is focused on allowing people to implement whatever they like when a request is received, freeing them from most of the details which involves handling DNS protocol.

Release Notes: This is the first public production-ready stable release. It includes a base core library with all DNS functions and a ready-to-use caching-forward DNS server which delegates policy resolution to a child resolver which can be written in any language (like Squid's squidGuard or Postfix's policyd).
