python-libcommon contains Map, Set, and Graph data types for Python. It provides data types (like Graph) that can handle directed or undirected labeled graphs. XML output is handled to describe graph structure.
Release Notes: Many changes for pgml2django.
omnisode.rb, preodein.rb, and preindent.rb are a set of Ruby programs to generate a program to use long Taylor series to solve systems of ordinary differential equations. It generates code to solve the equations in either C, C++, Ruby, Maple, or Maxima. Using the Taylor series, estimates are made of the location of poles.
Release Notes: Handling of systems of equations and the presentation of result summaries in HTML were improved.
The Tecla library provides programs with interactive command line editing facilities, similar to those of the Unix tcsh shell. It supports recall and editing of previously entered command lines, TAB completion of file names and application specific tokens, and in-line wild-card expansion of filenames. The optionally reentrant modules which perform TAB completion and wild-card expansion are also available separately for general use. The library is smaller, more modular, makes more efficient use of the heap, and has a less restrictive license than GNU readline.
Release Notes: This is a minor release that fixes a configuration problem that was preventing the enhance program from finding a pseudo terminal on some recent systems.
Gutenprint (formerly Gimp-Print) is a collection of printer drivers for Unix/Linux that currently supports over 1400 printers. It emphasizes quality and flexibility, offering a wide variety of options to meet most printing needs. It includes a CUPS driver, an IJS-based Ghostscript driver, Foomatic data, an enhanced Print plugin for The GIMP, and other printer maintenance utilities. It can be used equally well for fast printing of text or critical printing of high quality graphics and photographs.
Release Notes: This release features an extensive rewrite of the Canon driver, with support for many newer printers and updates for many existing printers. Support for some printers determined to be non-functional in earlier releases has been dropped. Support for some Epson printers has been added, and some bugs have been fixed.
RegressionSuite is a software test suite that incorporates measurements of startup lag and accurate execution times, generating execution statistics, customized input distributions, and processable regression specific details as part of the regular unit tests. It provides a framework around which the individual unit regressors are invoked (and details and statistics collected). Unit regressors are grouped into named regressor sets (or modules), and regressors are created by implementing specific regressor interfaces. These two features make regressors particularly amenable to testing analytics (and other similarly state-light) modules.
Release Notes: Execution time distributions are generated, giving a precise measurement of the isolated execution time, factoring initialization and other event-related delays. Enhanced testing provides correlated input generation and success/failure separation. A pluggable automated framework is provided for process/exec control, invocation freedom, statistics and details generation, and interfaces for unit regressors and sets.
parkverbot is a daemon that prevents hard disk head parking in rotational media. Modern rotational hard disks have a misfeature involving the regular automatic unloading of the heads, measurable by the SMART attribute "Load_Cycle_Count". This causes latency on wake-up amongst other issues (and it cannot always be turned off). The parkverbot daemon will periodically issue small read requests in order to keep the hardware from going to its head-unloaded idle state.
Release Notes: This is the initial release.
The ATLAS (Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software) project is an ongoing research effort focusing on applying empirical techniques in order to provide portable performance. It provides C and Fortran77 interfaces to a portably efficient BLAS implementation, as well as a few routines from LAPACK.
Release Notes: This release added the ability to specify which processors to use when tuning and fixes issue with virtual processors. Bugs in POWER7 support were fixed, and all compliance checks now pass. GCC 4.7.0 support was improved. ATLAS can now be compiled with MSVC++. ARM assembly was cleaned and ARM NEON support was improved. Basic support was provided for Intel's compilers. Threads and 64-bit support in Windows are now both native and longer need Cygwin.
