Download Website 27 Apr 23:24 Pogo 0.7


Pogo is probably the simplest and fastest audio player for Linux. Its elementary-inspired design uses the screen-space very efficiently. Pogo is especially well-suited for people who organize their music by albums on the hard drive. The main interface components are a directory tree and a playlist that groups albums in an innovative way.

Release Notes: This release mostly improves the search. It searches in the home folder if it hasn't found anything in the music directories, and does not search in subdirectories if it already searched in the parent directory. It only shows the filename and at most one parent directory for each file in the search results.

Download Website 27 Apr 23:22 pcapfix 0.4


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 completely redesigns the packet detection algorithm (replacing bottom-up-recovery with brute-force-packet-guessing). It improves detection rate with additional plausibility checks. It has increased speed when repairing large pcap files.

Release Notes: This release adds support for more DXF file entity types and includes improvements to the v-carving algorithm to improve CNC performance and reduce bad v-carving tool paths caused by infinitesimally small features.

No download Website 27 Apr 19:29 fping 3.1


fping is a ping-like program which uses the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request to determine if a target host is responding. fping differs from ping in that you can specify any number of targets on the command line, or specify a file containing the lists of targets to ping. Instead of sending pings to one target until it times out or replies, fping will send out a ping packet and move on to the next target in a round-robin fashion.

Release Notes: This release adds support for running fping as a normal user and contains various small fixes, both in documentation and code.
