Download Website 29 Jan 02:30 Quilt 0.51


Quilt is a set of scripts to manage a series of patches by keeping track of the changes each patch makes. Patches can be applied, un-applied, refreshed, etc. The key philosophical concept is that your primary output is patches, not ".c" files or ".h" files, so patches are the first-class object here. It was originally based on Andrew Morton's patch scripts published on the Linux kernel mailing list a while ago, but has been heavily modified since then.

Release Notes: Bugs were fixed in the setup and mail commands.

No download Website 29 Jan 02:13 jcpp 1.2.8

Release Notes: This release adds bugfixes for Authentication and Hashing and for a Makefile bug.

Download Website 29 Jan 02:00 Alaya Webdav Server 0.0.7


Alaya is a primitive chrooting Web server with basic WebDAV support. It can serve HTTPS and HTTP, and can authenticate using PAM, /etc/shadow, /etc/passwd, or using its own authentication files that allow for 'native' users that only have access to alaya content. It's intended to be a simple method of sharing content over WebDAV, and though it can be configured with a config file, it's easy to configure by command-line switches alone. Alaya always chroots to ensure that malicious users can't use '..' within a URL to access unintended documents, and that users can't accidentally leave documents in places outside of the chroot. It has a 'ChHome' mode that chroots users into their home directory and serves content from there. It supports .cgi scripts out of a trusted path (so not from within the chrooted WebDAV share) and read-only shared directories that are outside of the chroot (allowing access to shared content when in ChHome mode).

Release Notes: This release adds Gzip HTTP compression for downloads and directory listings, a major "native authentication" bugfix, and a proxy performance bugfix.

Download Website 29 Jan 01:59 Bcfg2 1.2.1


Bcfg2 helps system administrators produce a consistent, reproducible, and verifiable description of their environment, and offers visualization and reporting tools to aid in day-to-day administrative tasks. It is based on an operational model in which the specification can be used to validate and optionally change the state of clients, but in a feature unique to bcfg2 the client's response to the specification can also be used to assess the completeness of the specification. Using this feature, bcfg2 provides an objective measure of how good a job an administrator has done in specifying the configuration of client systems. Bcfg2 is therefore built to help administrators construct an accurate, comprehensive specification. Bcfg2 has been designed from the ground up to support gentle reconciliation between the specification and current client states. It is designed to gracefully cope with manual system modifications. Bcfg2 can also enable the construction of complex change management and deployment strategies.

Release Notes: This is primarily a bugfix release, with over two dozen reported bugs and dozens more unreported bugs fixed. The only significant change from 1.2.0 is that regular expression support in Rules is now optional, and off by default.

Download Website 29 Jan 01:58 TCPDF 5.9.145


TCPDF is a PHP class for generating PDF documents without requiring external extensions. TCPDF supports all ISO page formats and custom page formats, custom margins and units of measure, UTF-8 Unicode, RTL languages, HTML, barcodes, TrueTypeUnicode, TrueType, OpenType, Type1, and CID-0 fonts, images, graphic functions, clipping, bookmarks, JavaScript, forms, page compression, digital signatures, and encryption.


Release Notes: The TCPDF license and README.TXT files were updated.

Download Website 28 Jan 11:27 libburnia 1.2.0


libburnia is a project comprised of libraries and binaries for reading, mastering, and writing optical discs. It provides libburn, a CD/DVD/BD burn library, libisofs, a manipulation library for ISO 9660 filesystems, and libisoburn, a ISO 9660 multi-session library. On top of them there is cdrskin, a cdrecord emulator, and xorriso, a all-in-one application for ISO 9660 multi-session operations which additionaly provides a limited emulation of mkisofs.

Release Notes: lib burn can now read and write CD-TEXT with CD SAO audio sessions, and CDRWIN .cue files which define pure audio or pure data sessions. libisofs and libisoburn now have improved handling of timestamps. Several minor bugs were fixed.

Download Website 28 Jan 11:26 GNU xorriso 1.2.0


GNU xorriso creates, loads, manipulates, and writes ISO 9660 filesystem images with Rock Ridge extensions. Files can be copied in and out. The session results get written to optical media or to filesystem objects. Rather than needing external tools for ISO 9660 production and CD/DVD/BD burning, it is a static compilation of libburnia-project.org. Thus GNU xorriso depends only on fundamental operating system facilities.

Release Notes: Handling of timestamps in the Joliet and ISO 9660:1999 trees has been enhanced. xorriso now stores mtime in these trees and in the ECMA-119 tree. Some minor bugs were fixed.

Download Website 28 Jan 11:26 Unicorn 4.2.0


Unicorn is a Unix and LAN/localhost-optimized fork of the Mongrel HTTP server. It takes full advantage of functionality exclusive to Unix-like operating systems. It will reap and restart workers that die from broken apps, and there is no need to manage multiple processes yourself. Load balancing is done entirely by the operating system kernel. Requests never pile up behind a busy worker. The server does not care if your application is thread-safe or not, as workers all run within their own isolated address space and only serve one client at a time. All Rack applications are supported along with pre-Rack versions of Ruby on Rails via a Rack wrapper. It also supports atomic log cycling, nginx-style binary re-execution without losing connections, before_fork and after_fork hooks, and optional copy-on-write-friendly memory management.

Release Notes: Minor bugfixes and documentation improvements.

No download Website 28 Jan 11:26 MSS Code Factory 1.8.3091


MSS Code Factory is a rule-based expert system for translating application models to source code.

Release Notes: In tribute to IBM's venerable 309x hardware, this release produces clean-compiling code for an exception-throwing approach that provides substantial performance improvements under heavy failure loads, such as users entering bad information. Roughly half the manufactured code has been converted at this point, so it's a blend of old and new styles.

Download Website 28 Jan 11:25 Airtime 2.0


Airtime lets you take total control of your radio station via the Web with intelligent archive management, powerful search, an easy playlist builder, a simple scheduling calendar, and rock-solid automated playout. Features include fades, cues, playlists, a programme calendar, Icecast, Shoutcast, and Soundcloud integration, DJ and station manager roles, JQuery widgets, Liquidsoap playout, and a record and rebroadcast functionality. Powerful media archive features 'watch' folders to allow stations to magically synchronize files, auto-import files, and has multiple directory support. Users can interact with it through any Web browser. It comes with an 'easy install' package.


Release Notes: Sourcefabric has improved calendars, playlists, SoundCloud integration, and the Media Monitor. You can now also have up to three streams with different bitrates, and point them to different Icecast/SHOUTcast servers. Any connection problems between Liquidsoap and Icecast are now shown in the interface. Users can now switch between ALSA, OSS, AO, Pulseaudio, and Portaudio, all via the user interface. Users can listen to streams directly from the Web interface without having to start a third party application (such as VLC). Protection against brute-force password guessing attacks was implemented.

No download Website 27 Jan 23:29 Units of measurement for Ada 3.2


The library provides an implementation of dimensioned values for Ada. Unit checks are made at run-time, if not optimized out by the compiler. SI and irregular measurement units are supported. Shifted units like degrees Celsius are supported too. Conversions from and back to strings are provided for all various irregular units. An extensive set of GTK widgets for dealing with dimensioned values is included, though use of GTK is not mandatory for the rest of the library.


Release Notes: The procedure Put in Measures_UTF8_Edit has the additional parameters Field, Justify, and Fill. Fedora and Debian packages are provided for both 32- and 64-bit x86 architectures.

No download Website 27 Jan 23:28 Burp 1.3.0


Burp is a program that backs up and restores data. It uses librsync in order to save on the amount of space that is used by each backup. It also uses VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to make snapshots when backing up Windows computers.

Release Notes: This release adds a mechanism for automatically upgrading clients. It fixes a bug where attributes on Windows directories were not getting read properly. It fixes a rounding problem in remaining time estimation in the status monitor. There are various small bugfixes. Windows depkgs have been upgraded to the latest versions of OpenSSL.

Download Website 27 Jan 23:26 Exponent CMS 2.0.4


Exponent CMS is a content management system for Web sites. It allows site owners to easily create and manage dynamic Web sites without necessarily directly coding Web pages or managing site navigation. Exponent uses an intuitive and flexible content editing system that allows Web pages to be edited on the page as it is displayed. This avoids the need for more back-end administration or for navigating many administration pages to add a simple line of text. You can simply visit the page you need to edit as if you were a site visitor, and make the change.

Release Notes: This release implements a revised installation/upgrade process; administrators are now informed when upgrades are needed or version updates are available. The WYSIWYG editor now more faithfully displays content styles and offers additional customizations. Tag viewing, usage, and management were improved. Improved display of Module aggregation selection. Missing and orphan files can now be removed/added to File Manger. There are many other updates and fixes.
