Download Website 04 Mar 20:10 makepp 2.0rc3


Makepp, a build program that has a number of features that allow for reliable builds and simpler build files, is a drop-in replacement for GNU make. It supports almost all of the syntax that GNU make supports, and can be used with makefiles produced by utilities such as automake. It is called makepp (or make++) because it was designed with special support for C++, which has since been extended to other languages like Swig or embedded SQL. Some features that makepp adds to make are: greatly improved handling of builds that involve multiple makefiles (recursive make is no longer necessary); automatic scanning for include files; rebuilds triggered if build command changes; checksum-based signature methods for reliable builds, smart enough to ignore whitespace or comment changes; extensibility through Perl programming (within your makefile); repositories (automatically importing files from another tree); and build caches (not recompiling identically what a user of the same cache already did).

Release Notes: Only a few minor bugs were reported and fixed since rc2. Many files were touched due to spell checking of documentation and comments.

Download Website 04 Mar 20:10 ngIRCd 19


ngIRCd is a portable IRC daemon written from scratch. It is easy to configure, supports server links (even with original ircds) and runs on hosts with changing IP addresses (such as dial-in networks). Currently supported platforms are AIX, A/UX, Darwin/Mac OS X, FreeBSD, HP-UX, IRIX, Linux, NetBSD, SunOS/Solaris, and Windows with Cygwin.

Release Notes: New user modes (R, C) and channel modes (r, R) have been implemented, the flood and abuse protection has been improved (for example, better limits for list replies), and support for Anope IRC services has been enhanced. In addition, exception lists (mode e) have been implemented and several IRC commands are more standards-compliant now. The IRC commands GLINE and KLINE have been implemented.

No download Website 04 Mar 20:09 Seed7 2012-03-04


Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.

Release Notes: The program "ftpserv.sd7" was improved to support the commands RNFR and RNTO, and to work correctly when the listener cannot open a passive data port. Font support was improved such that caching of character pixmaps works. Some characters in the standard bitmap fonts were added or improved. The functions 'socSend' and 'socSendto' in "soc_rtl.c" were improved . The function 'fltSci' in "flt_rtl.c" was improved to avoid a C compiler warning. The function 'redraw' in "drw_x11.c" was changed, to work without 'XExposeEvent'. Some improvements were made to reduce the number of warnings.

Download Website 04 Mar 20:01 Scala 2.9.1-1


Scala is a modern multi-paradigm programming language designed to express common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and type-safe way. It smoothly integrates features of object-oriented and functional languages including mixins, algebraic datatypes with pattern matching, genericity, and more. It is well integrated with Java and .NET: the Scala compiler produces standard Java class files or .NET assemblies, and Java/.NET libraries and frameworks can be used without glue code or additional declarations.

Release Notes: This release fixes a critical Java-Scala interoperability issue that arose in 2.9.1. This is a conservative bugfix release; it will be followed by another, more aggressive bugfix release called 2.9.2.
