No download Website 29 Mar 21:52 SpurTracer 0.7


SpurTracer is a push-notification based monitoring solution for heterogenous loosely coupled IT infrastructures. It complements a service-endpoint monitoring solution like Nagios with a component-level interface auto-discovery. It automatically provides a certain level of functional tracing along with many non-functional measurements (e.g. call, error and timeout rates, interface latency, component execution, etc.). While being zero config itself, SpurTracer relies on you adding push notification support to the components you want to monitor. The best way to use SpurTracer is by adding punctual tracing to components in your infrastructure on-demand.

Release Notes: This is the first release tarball. It allows an autotools based installation using "configure", "make", and "make install".

Download Website 29 Mar 21:44 cdcat 1.9


The cdcat is a graphical (Qt based) multi-platform catalog program that scans the directories/drives you want and memorizes the filesystem (including the tags of MP3s) and stores it in a small file. The database is stored in a gzipped XML format, so you can hack it, or use it if necessary. Cdcat can store the contents of some specified files up to a size limit if you want (for example: *.nfo).

Release Notes: This release brings a lot of new features and fixes a lot of bugs. It got a polished icon, a dock icon which allows minimizing the program to the dock. The progress status now shows the action currently being performed and, on archive scanning, the current file inside the archive. File tree scanning for a new media can now be canceled, and files/directories can be excluded from scanning. mediaiinfo now only handles its known file extension. Thumbnails can be saved into the catalog directly as exif data. File content is now viewable by external programs.

glucopy-glurestore is a set of scripts for copying and restoring a fully functional GNU/Linux (or other Unix-like) system. The glucopy script will back up all system content (system and user files), while the glurestore script will partition and format an identical system, restore the system and user files, and make the system bootable. The scripts are included in the HTML documentation.

Release Notes: This release adds RAID preparation, backup, and restoration, and persistent device attribute considerations (UUIDs, MAC addresses, initrd, and GIDs).

No download Website 29 Mar 21:40 log-malloc2 0.2.3

Download Website 29 Mar 21:39 QTads 2.1.3


QTads is a cross-platform multimedia interpreter for Tads (Text Adventure Development System) games. Both Tads versions in use today (Tads 2 and Tads 3) are supported. It should be easy to port to a range of platforms, including embedded devices. MIDI, Ogg Vorbis, MP3, and WAV sound formats are supported.

Release Notes: This is a bugfix release: Games could not create new files and would print a "file operation prohibited" error, even if the write permission setting in the preferences was set to permit that. On Mac OS X, some fonts (like "Garamond Premier Pro") could cause the interpreter to crash. The application would crash often on Windows XP systems. Games sometimes were unable to find their data files. MIDI music looping should now work correctly on Mac OS, instead of playing just once.

Download Website 29 Mar 21:38 Miscellaneous Container Templates 1.5.3


Miscellaneous Container Templates is a C++ library that provides a collection of various STL-like containers with specific properties. It currently contains six closely related containers: closed_hash_set, closed_hash_map, linked_hash_*, and forward_hash_*. The first two are very similar to TR1 unordered_set and unordered_map; the linked ones provide additional functionality, while forward hash tables are more performant than linked, but have a restricted interface.

Release Notes: Linked and forward hash tables have been given a sort() function which changes element iteration order. MCT can now be configured, tested, and installed with GNU Make in addition to SCons. This is likely the last release before stable 1.6.

Download Website 29 Mar 21:38 Libquicktime 1.2.4


Libquicktime is based on the quicktime4linux library with several enhancements. All 3rd-party libraries were removed from the sourcetree. Instead, the systemwide installed libraries are detected by the configure script. All original codecs were moved into dynamically loadable modules, and new codecs are in development. Special API extensions allow access to the codec registry and more convenient processing of audio and video data. Libquicktime comes with original utility programs and additional tools, like a command line player and a GTK configuration utility that can configure the parameters of all installed codecs. The configuration is stored in the home directory, and can be used by all libquicktime applications.

Release Notes: This release brings upgrades for newer ffmpeg versions, 10 bit DNxHD support, limited support for edit lists in the public API, and several fixes.

STALLioN is a cross-platform C/C++ library for creating coherent CLI/Terminal programs on multiple platforms with one codebase. It aims to provide a consistent development API across multiple platforms so that separate code does not have to be created for each (often very different) terminal interface.

Release Notes: This release adds rudimentary support for input on both Windows and Linux. It currently can only check if a certain key is pressed or not. Input is non-blocking (single threaded) and uses the same scancodes for both platforms (based on Windows scancodes).

Download Website 29 Mar 21:27 Zoom Profiler 2.1.0


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 release adds support for the perf profiling driver including thread scheduler and system call tracing. Multi-threaded behavior can now be visualized with the new timeline view. Call trees have been enhanced to distinguish symbols by module. Code analysis for AMD Family 15h has been added as well as support for the AVX, VMX, and SVM instruction sets. DWARF information generated by gcc 4.6 is now supported. Network control of profiling has been improved. The Zoom GUI is now available for Mac OS X and Windows so that you can view profiles and control profiling from any machine.
