The Port Scan Attack Detector (psad) is a collection of three system daemons that are designed to work with the Linux iptables firewalling code to detect port scans and other suspect traffic. It features a set of highly configurable danger thresholds (with sensible defaults), verbose alert messages, email alerting, DShield reporting, and automatic blocking of offending IP addresses. Psad incorporates many of the packet signatures included in Snort to detect various kinds of suspicious scans, and implements the same passive OS fingerprinting algorithm used by p0f.
Release Notes: This release adds detection of IPv6 attacks and malicious traffic by parsing ip6tables logs, validation of ICMP6 type/code combinations, a new comprehensive test suite in the test/ directory, a 15% speedup over previous psad releases, a bugfix for the &LOG_DAEMON() error noticed by a few users, and a bugfix for the "qw() used as parentheses" warning for recent versions of Perl.
muzikQ is a curses audio player. It currently supports MP3 and Ogg. It also supports tag editing, rating, and telnet/ssh control. It is appropriate for a Linux system with limited resources dedicated to audio playback.

Functions keys (such as F1) have been removed due to a conflict when using X-Windows. This release also adds FILE I/O and String handling enhancements, a major code cleanup, and many other major and minor bugfixes.
QX11Grab is a system tray applet for X11 desktop environments that uses FFmpeg to recording X11 Desktops and Windows. This Application tapping window dimensions with xevent and prepare the command line for ffmpeg with configuration options. It sends the generated parameter list to a new FFmpeg process. QX11Grab is not the recording software; it prepares all commands for FFmpeg. Features: support for tapping dimensions on single/multi and Xinerama desktops; a metadata input formula; audio/video CODEC table editors with context menus and predefined arguments; a custom command table editor for experts; command line preview for better understanding FFmpeg option sets; a configurable audio capture interface for ALSA/Pulse and OSS devices; bookmark support for better switching of configuration to other CODEC sets; a presets editor for ffpresets; and command line shell script export. QX11Grab also implies a plugin interface for FFmpeg codec filters. Filter Plugins: a drawing text filter dialog; an un/sharpen filter dialog; a Display Aspect Ratio (DAR) dialog; a watermark filter dialog; and a fade (in/out) filter dialog.
Release Notes: This release fixes screen initialization with multiple Xserver layout configurations and includes new features.
sslh accepts connections in HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, OpenVPN, tinc, XMPP, or any other protocol that can be tested using a regular expression, on the same port. This makes it possible to connect to any of these servers on port 443 (e.g. from inside corporate firewalls, which almost never block port 443) while still serving HTTPS on that port. sslh supports IPv6, privilege dropping, transparent proxying, and much more.
Release Notes: The default behavior of the --user and --pidfile options has been changed to not change the user or create a pidfile, if not specified. This simplifies integration with systemd and launchd. An HTTP protocol probe has been added.
BitHorde is a fast and lightwheight content distribution system, aimed for high-performance decentralized content distribution. Its key features are high performance, a light footprint, and live streaming. Potential applications range from content delivery networks, including HD streaming setups, to offline-caching filesystems, to file sharing, to distribution of in-game maps or textures.
Release Notes: This is the final version of 0.2, and the last version implemented in the D programming language. The next version will be C++11, with Boost.
LIXA (LIbre XA) is a Transaction Manager implementing the distributed transaction processing "XA specification" and "TX (transaction demarcation) specification" according to the X/Open CAE Specification. LIXA is a Transaction Manager but it's not a Transaction Monitor; this is the distinguishing feature of the project. LIXA technology enables every application container, like a Web server or a shell, to become an XA compliant application server. The client/server architecture of LIXA allows many application containers to share a single LIXA (state) server; this is ideal when horizontal scalability is a must and many identical application containers must refer to a single transactional environment. Performance, scalability, and high availability are key features of the project. LIXA can be used with the C, C++, and PHP programming languages.
Release Notes: This is a really important release because it integrates, for the first time, LIXA Transaction Manager and the PHP (Zend engine) language. With this release, you may develop Distributed Transaction Processing with any number of MySQL database managers, and your Application Program can perform two-phase commits with any number of MySQL databases. This first release integrates only the "mysqli" driver (using the MySQL standard library and not the PHP-provided "native driver"). The next releases will extend the integration to other database managers and (possibly) different database drivers.
web2ldap is a full-featured Web-based LDAPv3 client written in Python. It is designed to run either as with stand-alone built-in Web server or under the control of another Web server with FastCGI support (e.g. Apache with mod_fastcgi). It has support for various LDAPv3 bind methods and a powerful built-in schema browser. HTML templates are supported for displaying and editing entries, and LDIF templates can be used for quickly adding new entries. A built-in X.509 parser displays a detailed view of certificates and CRLs with active links.
Release Notes: This release reads many of the HTML snippets from external template files, looks up _ldaps._tcp.domain for locating DE-Mail Ö-VD, and adds some new plugin classes and a bunch of small fixes.
adx is a minimalistic but massively Web-enabled address book that runs completely in your Web browser.

SmartGit/Hg is a graphical user interface for Git and Mercurial which can work with SVN repositories. It supports cloning from common repository providers (e.g., GitHub, Assembla), assists Git newbies, and also offers the advanced, powerful Git features. It provides several tools to help create clean commits, for example by allowing the user to commit just parts of changes files and reordering and squashing unpushed commits. If you are using GitHub or GitHub Enterprise, SmartGit/Hg can work easily with pull requests (creation, resolving) and commit comments. SmartGit/Hg ships with a built-in SSH client, file comparer, and merge tool which are capable of syntax coloring for many languages.
Release Notes: This release concentrates on bugfixes.
AutOrg aims to be a text editor, personal organizer, local wiki, secure agenda, and everything in between.

stdnoj is a cross-platform C++ class library that includes classes for using portable strings, databases, SMTP, POP, NNTP, arrays, files, directories, logging, email, and sockets. While templates are used, no reliance upon STL or other (traditionally error-prone) technologies has been used, which increases portability between compilers.
Release Notes: This release deepens support for G++ on Linux.
Giada is a minimal, hardcore audio tool for DJs and live performers. Just pick your sample, drop it in any channel, and start the show by using this tiny piece of software as a loop machine, drum machine, sequencer, live sampler, or effect (VST) host. Giada aims to be a compact and portable virtual device for production use and live sets.

kmod is a set of tools to handle common tasks with Linux kernel modules like insert, remove, list, check properties, resolve dependencies, and aliases. It replaces module-init-tools.
Release Notes: The search order for config directories has changed to match systemd and udev.
Xtables-addons is a package which provides some extra plugins for iptables. It obsoletes the old patch-o-matic repository. Instead of patching the kernel source, extensions are built as modules and thus allow extending kernels without recompilation.
Release Notes: Support for Linux 3.3/3.4 was added. ipset-genl was removed.
Unsettings is a graphical configuration program for the Unity desktop environment which lets you change some of Unity's settings. It also lets you save your settings into and load from a text file (in JSON format) so you can easily back up your settings or copy them to a different account.
