quIRC is a lightweight console-mode IRC client. It uses terminal escape sequences to provide a clean character-cell based interface, handling things like multiple channels and servers (using tabs), input line editing (with bash-like keystrokes), and backscroll.
Release Notes: This release incorporates significant changes to the internals of buffer rendering. This has already made most display options retroactive (e.g., maxnicklen, nick prefixes, quiet mode) and will make further UI improvements easier. However, it's likely that a few regressions and papercuts have slipped through the testing, so this release is considered unstable.
The Objeck computer language is an object-oriented computing language with functional features that has ties with Java, C#, and Pascal. In this language, all data types are treated as objects. The language consists of a compiler and VM with an accompanying memory management and JIT compiler.
Release Notes: This release was primarily focused on bugfixing and tying up loose ends from the 3.0 release. Highlights include the addition of more trigonometric functions (medium), fixes for a bug related to nested floating point calculations which make method calls (medium), use of a version key to ensure that libraries and binaries are compatible with specific versions of the tool chain (new), and a patched debugger which looks for the required magic number in the correct place in order to properly load debug executables (high).
TorrentWatch-X is a Web-based tool to automate BitTorrent downloads. This is a fork of the torrentwatch project, now also with NMT support. It is meant to run on Linux and Mac OS X with different BitTorrent clients (for now, only Transmission is supported directly) and make it work in all Web browsers. It supports RSS feeds from a few torrent sites that offer TV shows. It can save torrent files in any folder, so any torrent client can pick it up. It can tell Transmission to save data in any folder. It can tell Transmission to stop when a certain ratio is reached. Authentication with Transmission is supported. Your own RSS feed can be added.
Release Notes: This release updates jquery to 1.7.1, fixes ratio limits not being passed correctly to transmission, fixes RSS feeds with magnet links not being added to transmission, and adds better hidelist handling.
JActor is a high-performance Java Actor implementation that can send 150 million messages per second, making it one of the fastest Actor implementations in any language.
Release Notes: The support for and the capabilities of JLPCActors have been greatly increased, including dependency injection, instantiation using the Factory component, dependency injection, and concurrent/initialization/synchronization requests.
phpMyAdmin is a tool intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. It can create, rename, and drop databases, create/drop/alter tables, delete/edit/add fields, execute any SQL statement, manage keys on fields, create dumps of tables and databases, export/import CSV data, and administrate one single database and multiple MySQL servers.
Release Notes: This release adds browse-mode improvements (grid editing, remember recent tables, remember last sort order by table, flexible column widths, reordering of columns, and a more compact navigation bar), AJAXification of many operations, a reorganized server status page with server monitoring, improved support for stored routines, events, and triggers, OpenGIS support, Zoom-search in table searching, Drizzle support, and an improved ENUM/SET editor.
Dar is a shell command that makes backup of a directory tree and files. Its features include splitting archives over several files, DVD, CD, ZIP, or floppies, compression, full or differential backups, strong encryption, proper saving and restoration of hard links, extended attributes, file forks, Door inodes, and sparse files, remote backup using pipes and external commands (such as ssh), and rearrangement of the "slices" of an existing archive. It can run commands between slices, before and after saving some defined files or directories (for a proper database backup, for example), and quickly retrieve individual files from differential and full backups. Several external GUIs exist as alternatives to its CLI interface, like kdar, DarGUI, SaraB, etc.
Release Notes: This release fixes an important bug which avoided dar_manager to read databases generated by the previous release. These database can now be read normally with this new version, and there's no need to rebuild them.
The Noble Ape Simulation is a collection of a number of autonomous simulation components including a landscape simulation, biological simulation, weather simulation, sentient creature (Noble Ape) simulation, and a simple intelligent-agent scripting language (ApeScript). Noble Ape also contains a social simulation where the Noble Apes can be tracked in terms of social groups and also over many generations to explain social phenomenon to users looking to study this kind of interaction. It has been in development for more than a fifteen years.
Release Notes: This release includes Linux flavors of the Noble Ape Simulation 0.694.
Scid vs. PC is a powerful chess toolkit. It has extensive database and PGN file handling capabilities, and can be used to play chess on the internet (with FICS), against a computer chess opponent, or for chess grandmasters to prepare for tournament matches. Additionally, Scid vs. PC can run automated computer tournaments with chess engines playing against each other.
Release Notes: This Windows-only update includes recent Tournament changes (with the Ponder-On feature) and fixes some annoying configuration file gremlins.
MP3 Diags finds problems in MP3 files and helps the user fix many of them. It looks at both the audio part (VBR info, quality, normalization) and the tags containing track information (ID3). It has a tag editor, which can download album information (including cover art) from MusicBrainz and Discogs, as well as paste data from the clipboard. Track information can also be extracted from a file's name. Another component is the file renamer, which can rename files based on the fields in their ID3V2 tag (artist, track number, album, genre, etc.).
Release Notes: This release fixes a crash which was introduced in the previous release and which, in many cases, prevented the program from starting.
LRZIP is a compression program and library that can achieve very high compression ratios and speed when used with large files using unlimited sized compression windows. It uses the combined compression algorithms of zpaq and lzma for maximum compression, lzo for maximum speed, and the long range redundancy reduction of rzip. It is designed to scale with increases with RAM size, improving compression further. A choice of either size or speed optimizations allows for either better compression than even lzma can provide, or better speed than gzip, but with bzip2 sized compression levels. It also has high grade password protected encryption and full STDIN/STDOUT support.
Release Notes: This release has been updated to a new zpaq library backend which is faster and now supports three different compression levels. This significantly increases the maximum compression available by lrzip with -L 9. The include file Lrzip.h used by liblrzip is now properly installed into $prefix/include.
GNU TeXmacs is a free wysiwyw (what you see is what you want) editing platform with special features for scientists. The software aims to provide a unified and user friendly framework for editing structured documents with different types of content: text, mathematics, graphics, interactive content. TeXmacs can also be used as an interface to many external systems for computer algebra, numerical analysis, and statistics. New presentation styles can be written by the user and new features can be added to the editor using Scheme.
Release Notes: This release adds a rudimentary spreadsheet facility and a new mode for editing TeXmacs documentation. Several X11 and Qt widgets have been added for GUI development using Scheme, and many minor bugs have been fixed.
