Lunzip is a decompressor for lzip files. Its small size makes it well suited for embedded devices or software installers that need to decompress files but do not need compression capabilities. Lunzip is able to decompress any lzip file using as little memory as 50 kB.
Release Notes: Lunzip now prints only one status line for each multi-member file when only one "-v" is specified. The inability to change output file attributes has been downgraded from an error to a warning. Quote characters in messages have been changed as advised by GNU Coding Standards. The configure option "--datadir" has been renamed to "--datarootdir" to follow GNU Standards.
4MLinux is a miniature Linux distribution focusing on four capabilities: maintenance (by using it as a system rescue live CD), multimedia (for example, for playing video DVDs), miniserver (using the inetd daemon), and mystery (meaning console games).
Release Notes: This release is designed to be installed to a hard disk drive. The minimum requirements are 128MB of RAM and 1GB of free disk space, so this is especially useful for older PCs. After installing 4MLinux to a HDD, it is possible to upgrade it to the allinone edition.
Impro-Visor is a music notation and playback tool for helping jazz musicians learn to improvise.

Release Notes: Version 5.12 will hang if a user tries to create a new blank leadsheet. This release removes that problem.
GNU xorriso creates, loads, manipulates, and writes ISO 9660 filesystem images with Rock Ridge extensions. Files can be copied in and out. The session results get written to optical media or to filesystem objects. Rather than needing external tools for ISO 9660 production and CD/DVD/BD burning, it is a static compilation of libburnia-project.org. Thus GNU xorriso depends only on fundamental operating system facilities.
Release Notes: The handling of intentional deviations from ECMA-119 specifications has been improved. Some rarely-occurring bugs have been fixed.
libburnia is a project comprised of libraries and binaries for reading, mastering, and writing optical discs. It provides libburn, a CD/DVD/BD burn library, libisofs, a manipulation library for ISO 9660 filesystems, and libisoburn, a ISO 9660 multi-session library. On top of them there is cdrskin, a cdrecord emulator, and xorriso, a all-in-one application for ISO 9660 multi-session operations which additionaly provides a limited emulation of mkisofs.
Release Notes: The handling of intentional deviations from ECMA-119 specifications has been improved in libisofs. libisoburn and xorriso now make use of these improvements. Some rarely-occurring bugs have been fixed. Small refinements have been made in libburn.

Gerbil consists of an interactive visualization tool targeted at multispectral and hyperspectral image data, and a toolbox of common algorithms, e.g. for segmentation. Multispectral imaging has been gaining popularity and has been gradually applied to many fields besides remote sensing. However, due to the high dimensionality of the data, both human observers and computers have difficulty interpreting this wealth of information. Gerbil facilitates the visualization of the relationship between spectral and topological information in a novel fashion. It puts emphasis on the spectral gradient, which is shown to provide enhanced information for many reflectance analysis tasks. It also includes a rich toolbox for evaluation of image segmentation and other algorithms in the multispectral domain. The parallel coordinates visualization technique is combined with hashing for a highly interactive visual connection between spectral distribution, spectral gradient, and topology.
Release Notes: This release is an important step for Gerbil to be used in productive environments. Drawing speed is increased by magnitudes. Drawing quality has improved significantly, especially when multiple labels are used during the session. There's been an overall polish of the software, mostly in respect to its user interface.
ExpressionJ is a Java library for interpreting simple numeric expressions, which may be used in all applications that have to combine numeric values but do not want to use full-blown scripting languages.
Release Notes: This release allows semicolons inside function declarations, fixes expressions before semicolons followed by function expressions not being taken into account in some cases, adds array declaration and array affectation expressions, makes the expressions cloneable, and adds a new combiner method allowing easy creation of an array expression.
