openEMS is an electromagnetic field solver using the FDTD method. It employs a fully 3D Cartesian and cylindrical coordinate graded mesh. Matlab (or Octave) is used as an easy and flexible scripting interface. Advanced Features include: multi-threading, SIMD (SSE), and MPI support for high speed FDTD.
Release Notes: Many updates to the drude type material model, e.g. support for multiple plasma frequencies and losses. A new conducting sheet model. Have a look at an example in "Matlab/examples/microstrip/MSL_Losses.m". Use of the Matlab private folder for openEMS internal functions (make sure to install into a clean directory). The graphical structural viewer AppCSXCAD has been enhanced to better support cylindrical meshes (in 3D mode only). Many bugfixes and internal enhancements.
DataNucleus AccessPlatform is a standards-compliant Java persistence product. It is fully compliant with the JDO1, JDO2, JDO2.1, JDO2.2, JDO3, JPA1, JPA2 and JPA2.1 Java standards, and provides a REST API. It complies with the OGC Simple Feature Spec for persistence of geospatial Java types. It allows access to all popular RDBMS available today, together with the MongoDB, LDAP, NeoDatis, JSON, Excel/ODF spreadsheets, XML, BigTable, HBase, and Neo4j databases.
Release Notes: The enhancer was upgraded to use ASM v4 and to support stackmap frames (so it is usable with JDK1.7+). The RDBMS plugin was upgraded to require JDK1.6+ and to support JDBC4.1. SchemaTool gained a new "delete+create" mode. The MongoDB plugin querying capabilities were improved to support Date fields, query ranges natively, and more efficient "count()"s. Bugs were fixed with the discriminator for JDO @Embedded, 2 possible JPA NPEs, some RDBMS JDOQL/JPQL query sintaxis, L2 caching of objects using the "identity" strategy, and metadata initialization. Many other bugs were fixed.
The Coldtags suite is a collection of custom JSP tags that provides 300+ custom JSP tags for common programming tasks faced by JSP developers. It also includes custom tags similar to the Web controls in the .NET framework.
Release Notes: New components were added, bringing the total to over 420 controls. The existing components were updated.
Concurrency Kit provides a plethora of concurrency primitives and lock-less and lock-free data structures designed to aid in the design and implementation of high performance scalable concurrent systems. It was designed to minimize dependencies on operating system-specific interfaces, and most of the interface relies only on a strict subset of the standard library and more popular compiler extensions.
Release Notes: This release includes a bugfix to ck_bag that corrects a memory allocation leak caused by available list mismanagement. Pointer packing has been disabled by default for x86-64, as Intel expects to bump VMA bits to 56 bits after Haswell. In order to re-enable pointer packing, please pass --enable-pointer-packing to the configure script.
Release Notes: This release fixes the virtual index to use the server hostname instead of localhost.
The Mandos system allows computers to have encrypted root file systems and at the same time be capable of remote or unattended reboots. The computers run a small client program in the initial RAM disk environment which will communicate with a server over a network. All network communication is encrypted using TLS. The clients are identified by the server using an OpenPGP key that is unique to each client. The server sends the clients an encrypted password. The encrypted password is decrypted by the clients using the same OpenPGP key, and the password is then used to unlock the root file system.
Release Notes: The client now uses all available interfaces, not just the first usable one. The server takes a new "--foreground" option.
Docutils is a modular system for processing documentation into useful formats, such as HTML, XML, and LaTeX. For input, it supports reStructuredText, an easy-to-read, what-you-see-is-what-you-get plain-text markup syntax.
Release Notes: This release fixes bug 3527842: under Python 3, converted tests and tools were installed in the PYTHONPATH.
(R)?ex is a tool that allows you to manage all of your servers from a central point, through the complete process of configuration management and software deployment.
Release Notes: This release adds improved messages on compile failure and new functions for the user management module. It also enhances some CLI parameters and fixes bugs.
Liberté Linux is a secure, reliable, lightweight, and easy to use Gentoo-based live USB Linux distribution intended as a communication aid in hostile environments. It installs as a regular directory on a USB/SD key, and after a single-click setup, boots on any desktop computer or laptop. The Internet connection is then used to set up a Tor circuit, which handles all network communication. During first boot, a unique email ID is generated from fingerprints of user's certificate and Tor hidden service key. This persistent ID allows one to stealthily communicate with other Liberté users. The distribution includes image and document processing applications, and can function as a secure Web browsing platform. For developers, Liberté can also serve as a robust framework for mastering Gentoo-based live USBs/CDs. The build process is fully automated with incremental build support, and is more mature and reliable than most of Gentoo's own outdated live CD tools.
Release Notes: This release features better boot media support (including fixes for SD and USB 3.0), a new microhttpd-based cables communication implementation, a VIPS image manipulation toolkit, and fixed key retrieval in GNU Privacy Assistant. A touchscreen calibration utility has been added. LXPanel now has working thermal sensor support.
Son of Grid Engine is a highly-scalable and versatile distributed resource manager for scheduling batch or interactive jobs on clusters or desktop farms. It is a community project to continue Sun's Grid Engine. It is competitive against proprietary systems and provides better scheduling features and scalability than other free DRMs like Torque, SLURM, Condor, and Lava.
Release Notes: A few fixes (one security), improved RPM support, and revised version numbering.
