SourceAFIS is a fingerprint recognition/matching SDK (library), or more generally an Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS). It essentially compares two fingerprints and decides whether they belong to the same person. It can quickly search a large database of registered fingerprints. It comes with an easy-to-use API (pure .NET and Java) plus assorted applications and tools.
Release Notes: Open-source biometry is faster. SourceAFIS can match 10,000 fingerprints per second, plus there is the prospect of further speedups in future releases. Besides this core improvement, this version improves the Java port (API docs and more tests) and supports Mono 2.10 with all its new features.
Metacza is a language and its compiler which produces output in the C++ Meta Template Language. Its concise syntax makes Meta Template Programming much easier. Metacza allows you to write programs using boost::mpl, and to produce C++ header files that can be used on their own. Programming without boost::mpl is also supported. Metacza is a higher order language with closures, let, and lambda.
Release Notes: This release fixes the code so that gcc-4.7.0 compiles it.
The OATH Toolkit makes it easy to build one-time password authentication systems. It contains shared libraries, commandline tools, and a PAM module. Supported technologies include the event-based HOTP algorithm (RFC4226) and the time-based TOTP algorithm (RFC6238). OATH stands for Open AuTHentication, which is the organization which specifies the algorithms. For managing secret key files, the Portable Symmetric Key Container (PSKC) format described in RFC6030 is supported.
Release Notes: This release adds an oathtool --base32 parameter to decode base32 keys. Verbose output (oathtool -v) now prints key data in base32 format too. Base32 and hex encoding functions have been added to liboath. This release uses gnulib's snprintf for better portability.
The Linux Cluster Management Console (LCMC) is an application that eases the burden of managing your Corosync/Heartbeat, Pacemaker, and DRBD-based cluster systems. It does not require any kind of agent or client code on the cluster nodes, instead using SSH.
Release Notes: Start-up time was improved. The --scale option, which scales fonts, was added. Retrieving of pengine meta-data for Pacemaker 1.1.7 was fixed. Interleave=true option for clones is the default value now. A backports repo for squeeze installation is used.

DIASER is a cloud storage class combined geo-data replication, long-term archive system, and WAN vault application. Manage long term mixed data archives generated by existing backup software. Ensure availability using commodity hardware. Retain administrative and financial control. It combines a disk-based backup volume management system and triple redundancy with a storage architecture designed to structure months to years of long term sustainable archiving space. It is a quick and low-cost way to make an environment more robust by backing up data in multiple places. This replication also provides fast retrieval of archived data from all node hosting locations. A Perl installer creates the system. Nodes can be dedicated to storage or used for existing services over unused bandwidth. DIASER works in user space over SSH.
Release Notes: The key themes of this release are documentation and accessibility. A more comprehensive release includes a working example of a personal cloud storage installation (section 14 of the manual). Also included are a detailed listing of rsync switches used for 'heavy lifting' and general improvements to links. Core documentation has been added, including a White Paper and other elements updated. The spec file is further refined for use in Fedora, or for your own packaging requirements. Special developer tools provide e.g. Perl to extract, list all subroutine names and line number, print line num ranges, etc.
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 "chkccomp.c" was changed to define the macros 'likely' and 'unlikely' only when __GNUC__ >= 3 holds. The library "modern27.s7i", which defines the vector font modern27, was added. The compiler was improved to initialize global interface variables correctly. The function cmdPipe2() in "cmd_win.c" was improved to work correctly. Several functions in "drw_win.c" were improved to raise MEMORY_ERROR when CreatePen() or CreateSolidBrush() fails. In various makefiles the definition of USE_BUILTIN_EXPECT was added. The descriptions of paths in "seed7/src/read_me.txt", were improved.
RedNotebook is a graphical diary and journal to keep track of notes and thoughts throughout the day. It includes a calendar navigation, customizable templates for each day, export functionality, and a keyword search and cloud.

MSS Code Factory is a rule-based expert system for translating application models to source code.
Release Notes: This update release corrects the concurrent modification exceptions that were happening if you modified the objects while iterating a SortedMap returned for a duplicate object collection. The SortedMaps returned are now copies of the internal cache maps to allow updates and deletes of the returned results without causing exceptions. This is a bit slower and uses a bit more memory, but it's much, much easier to code with the APIs this way.
fli4l is a single-floppy Linux-based ISDN/DSL/ethernet-router. It features configuration with some simple ASCII-files, several possible connection-flavors (in/out/callback, and raw IP/PPP), channel bundling (an extra channel can be added through a Windows/Unix-client), configuration of multiple networks, least-cost routing, automatic choice of provider, display/calculation of connection times and costs, and a Windows/Unix client to control dial/hangup, monitor traffic and monitor incoming calls on ISDN (see screenshot).
Release Notes: This release has a few new features. Bugs known since version 3.6.0 were fixed. Several improvements were made, in particular in the support for IPv6.
ms-sys is a Linux program for writing Microsoft compatible boot records. The program does the same as Microsoft's "fdisk /mbr" to a hard disk or "sys d:" to a floppy or FAT32 partition, except that it does not copy any system files (only the boot record is written).
Release Notes: This release adds experimental support for the Windows 7 NTFS boot record. Unfortunately, writing such a boot record with ms-sys is not useful if the intention is to get a bootable partition.
PlayShell is a player handler and playlist manager with a shell-like interface for the console. It emulates most playing functions and handles most players like VLC, MPlayer, mpg321, and SoX. It is best for playing music in a terminal or console and supports video files as well.
Release Notes: This release adds more fixes and some new features.
Fotoxx navigates an image collection using a thumbnail browser to choose images to view or edit. Edit functions include brightness, contrast, color, gamma, white balance, tone mapping, red eyes, sharpen, blur, noise suppression, smart erase, trim (crop), resize, rotate, add text, bend/warp, many art effects, HDR, HDF, stack, and panorama. Edit functions use movable curves and sliders. Feedback is live using the whole image. RAW files can be edited and saved with deep color. Areas or objects can be selected using freehand draw, follow edge, and tone matching. Selections can be edited in place with adjustable blending. They can also be cut and pasted into other images. Any metadata can be edited, reported, and searched (filenames, tags, dates, geotags, comments, captions, ratings, etc.). Collections (arbitrary subsets) can be defined and viewed. Batch functions are available for rename, resize/export, RAW conversion, and more.
Release Notes: Selecting an area by matching color tones is now smoother and more responsive. An unwanted object can be overpainted using a background taken from elsewhere in the image. A new vignette tool can create a dark or colored surround of the central area, or remove a radial brightness falloff in an old photo. The border of a selected area can be adjusted incrementally using the mouse. Indexing and thumbnail creation for newly-found images has been made faster, over 2,000/minute on a strong computer. Seven other minor improvements have been made, and one significant bugfix.
pcapfix is a repair tool for corrupted pcap and pcapng files. It checks for an intact pcap global header and packet block and repairs it if there are any corrupted bytes. If a header is not present, one is created and added to the beginning of the file. It then tries to find pcap packet headers or packet blocks, and checks and repairs them.
Release Notes: This release checks that the size is smaller than 65536 when recovering packets, adds recognition when a file does not seem to be a pcap file at all, compiles properly on Windows systems (tested with dev-cpp), and adds an option to manually select the data link type.
Vintage Terminal is a terminal emulator that simulates the looks of a 1980s monitor.
Release Notes: Partial VT100 support has been implemented, enough to run alpine, vim (with syntax highlighting) and nethack, and to use commands like clear, more, and less. Character effects have been implemented: bold, underlined, blink, reversed, and dim. A file is now run when the terminal is started: ~/.vinterm_profile. It comes preconfigured with some useful settings for a monochrome terminal.
Anonplus is a highly flexible framework for creating decentralzied applications which are targeted at users. Anonplus also offers a social network free from interference.
Release Notes: This release fixes numerous bugs which were found in build-6, but is not quite ready for build-7.
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 Factory and NBLock components are now actors. Dependency aggregation is driven though the use of Requirement objects.
dupeGuru Picture Edition is a tool to find duplicate pictures on your computer. dupeGuru PE is efficient, thanks to its quick fuzzy matching algorithm. Not only can dupeGuru PE find exact matches, but it can also find duplicates among pictures of different kind (PNG, JPEG, GIF, etc.) and quality. dupeGuru PE is customizable. You can tweak its matching engine to find exactly the kind of duplicates you want to find. The Preference page of the help file lists all the scanning engine settings you can change. dupeGuru PE is safe. Its engine has been especially designed with safety in mind. Its reference directory system as well as its grouping system prevent you from deleting pictures you didn't mean to delete. dupeGuru PE supports JPG, PNG, TIFF, GIF, BMP, and PSD formats. All these formats can be compared together. Not only can you delete the duplicate pictures dupeGuru PE finds, but you can also move or copy them elsewhere. You can also easily weed the bad duplicates out, thanks to the Power Marker.
Release Notes: This release improves the results window UI on Windows and Linux, adds a dialog to edit the Ignore List, adds the ability to sort results by "marked" status, and fixes "Open with default application", a bug which caused false reporting of discarded matches, various localization glitches, hard crashes on crash reporting, and the details panel showing up at inconvenient places in the screen on Windows and Linux.
Cainteoir Text-to-Speech is a GNOME/GTK+ GUI for the Cainteoir Text-to-Speech Engine. It allows you to listen to your documents or record them for use on the move using any of the eSpeak or MBROLA text-to-speech voices.
Release Notes: This release adds initial translations from OSTD (Open Source Translation Database), hides the titlebar when maximized on GNOME 3.4 and later, reports "Document type is not supported" when loading fails instead of clearing the currently open document, supports filtering voices by the current document's language, and fixes reading/recording section ranges (it would miss the last section).
The Cainteoir Engine is a library for reading and recording different document formats (ePub, HTML, MHT, RTF, email, and others) to various audio output formats (such as PulseAudio, WAV, and Ogg/Vorbis). It also provides the following command-line tools: cainteoir, a front-end to the Cainteoir text-to-speech library; metadata, which extracts metadata from documents to RDF tuples; and tagcloud, which generates tag clouds and tag cloud data.
Release Notes: This release supports espeak using installed mbrola voices, translates language and region names using the iso-codes package, implements the BCP 47 standard for interpreting language, script, and region tags, recognizes h1..h6 as table of content entries in (X)HTML, supports newsgroup information for email, supports property attributes on an empty property element in RDF/XML, and fixes detection of HTML which is valid XML, but is not marked as XHTML.
