fcppt (short for "Freundlich's C++ toolkit") is a C++ library with various classes and functions to make C++ development easier. It tries to fill in some gaps left by the Boost library and even implements some replacements for a few Boost components.
Release Notes: This release focuses on improved stability, better documentation, and removal of obsoleted features that are now properly supported by Boost. It features a new assert framework, null_ptr emulation, optional references, a redesigned logger library, better strong typedefs, and some other minor changes. Boost 1.47 is now required. Therefore, a lot of filesystem wrappers, the chrono library, and the ratio library have been removed.
PlanetScape simulates navigation on planets or a moon surface. It takes color-coded elevation data from an image and renders the planet's surface in 3D or Stereo.
Release Notes: The surface resolution of Mars has increased 2x. The ZBuf part of the software has been cleaned up. Stereo images of the surface are generated in color.
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 brings several fixes that lead dar to display error messages at end of execution under certain environments. If fixes a segmentation fault that could be met while comparing an archive with the filesystem. It also lets dar link with libexecinfo under systems that provide it, and lets dar restore from differential backups directories that have been recorded as unchanged since the archive of reference was done. It updates all provided sample scripts to be compatible with dar's --min-digit new option.

Automatic language selection can be overridden on the command line; type edgar -help for details.
Onzen is a graphical front end for the CVS, SVN, HG and Git revision control systems. It represents the files managed by the RCS in a tree view with detailed information and offers functions to update, commit, add, remove, rename, revert, diff, view files, and many more functions.
Release Notes: This release adds sort buttons to the tests list. The patches dialog is non-modal. Search has been added to the revision tree view. The function "update all" has been added. A function has been added to remove trailing whitespaces and convert TABs. A file find function and shell menu have been added. Check-out repository has been implemented. Git support has been started. Ctlr-C in the tree list copies a filename to the clipboard. Creating a new repository has been implemented. There is a dialog to show outgoing changes (hg). The message widget in rename/remove dialogs has been fixed. Improved documentation; creation of PDF files.
SIP provides image processing, pattern recognition, and computer vision routines for SciLab, a Matlab-like matrix-oriented programming environment. SIP is able to read/write images in almost 90 major formats, including JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF, FITS, and TIFF. It includes routines for filtering, segmentation, edge detection, morphology, curvature, fractal dimension, distance transforms, multiscale skeletons, and more.
Release Notes: This release adds a new function color_classify for color recognition and a new function imhist for plotting and computing histograms tailored for images.
Algorithmic Autoregulation is a software system implementing a new self-regulating methodology for coordinating teamwork, based on collaboration and individual merit. It is well-suited for distributed teams, eliminating the need for central management.
Join Hand in an epic adventure to destroy an ancient sealed enemy. Asgard is a role playing game complete with menus, random battles, maps, towns, and dungeons.

getmail is intended as a simple, secure, and reliable replacement for fetchmail. It retrieves email (either all messages, or only unread messages) from one or more POP3, SPDS, or IMAP4 servers (with or without SSL) for one or more email accounts, and reliably delivers into qmail-style Maildirs, mboxrd files, or through external MDAs (command deliveries) specified on a per-account basis. getmail also has excellent support for domain (multidrop) mailboxes, including delivering messages to different users or destinations based on the envelope recipient address.
Release Notes: This release has switched to using BODY.PEEK in IMAP retrieval; problems are no longer appearing with this feature during testing.
MV3D is a virtual world and multi-player game framework for use with Python. It was designed with scalability in mind and is able to distribute a world across as many servers as needed while dynamically balancing the load. The simulation framework is not specifically slanted towards any one genre of online game or virtual world, and can just as easily be used for a space game as a fantasy setting. Objects on an MV3D server can be simulated using the ODE physics engine for realistic interactions. A single server is able to host thousands of of simulated objects. The client works with both the Ogre3D and Panda3D renderers.
Release Notes: This was mainly a bugfix release, with more than 65 bugs squashed. It has support for Linux with the Ogre3D renderer along with Mac OS X with the Panda3D renderer. This means that MV3D's client, server, and tools are available on Windows, Linux, and OS X. With bugfixes across the whole platform, this is also the most stable release to date.
pf-kernel is a fork of the Linux kernel. It provides useful features which are not merged into the mainline, including the BFS CPU scheduler, the BFQ I/O scheduler, and TuxOnIce.
