tenshi (formerly wasabi) is a log monitoring program designed to watch a log file for lines matching user defined regular expressions and report on the matches. The regular expressions are assigned to queues that have an alert interval and a list of mail recipients. Queues can be set to send a notification as soon as there is a log line assigned to them, or to send periodic reports. Additionally, uninteresting fields in the log lines (such as PID numbers) can be masked with the standard regular expression grouping operators ( ). This allows cleaner and more readable reports. All reports are separated by hostname and all messages are condensed when possible.
Release Notes: The code for invoking tail was cleaned up, the handling of "repeat" messages was improved, and the Gentoo init script has been updated.
WeeChat (Wee Enhanced Environment for Chat) is a fast and light IRC client for many operating systems. Everything can be done with a keyboard, and it is customizable and extensible with C plugins and scripts. It is compliant with RFCs 1459, 2810, 2811, 2812, and 2813.
Release Notes: This release has some new features including terminal bracketed paste mode, an IRC "external" SASL mechanism, and better parsing of IRC channel modes. Many bugs have been fixed.
kramdown is a fast pure Ruby Markdown-superset converter. It uses a strict syntax definition and supports several common extensions.
Release Notes: Aside from bugfixes and some minor changes, a new converter for removing HTML tags was added.
RemoteBox is a graphical tool which lets you administer guests or virtual machines running under VirtualBox on a remote server or even your local machine if desired. You may, for example, have a root server on the Internet, a server at home, or a server at work running VirtualBox but want to have the convenience of managing the guests easily from your local machine. The virtual machines run in headless mode, which means you don't need an active graphical display on the server but you can still connect and view the displays of the guests. The goal of RemoteBox is to provide a GUI that should be familiar to VirtualBox users while allowing them to administer a remote installation of VirtualBox. It does this via the VirtualBox API and SOAP interface, which are exposed when running the VirtualBox Web service. You can also use RemoteBox simply as an alternative interface for managing VirtualBox on your local machine.
Release Notes: Major improvements to handling connection timeouts and invalid references, including a heartbeat to keep connections alive. USB devices can now be attached to or detached from the guest while it is running. An option has been added to view the startup logs for a guest; up to four logs can be viewed. You can now also set a screenshot as the guest's icon, rather than having the default operating system icon. File dialogs now let you select multiple files where appropriate, for example adding media to the VMM. There are several optimizations and tweaks to the GUI that should improve responsiveness.
M.A.M.E. Catalog / Launcher II (also referred to as QMC2) is the successor of one of the first XMAME GUI frontends available, QMamecat (derived from MAMECAT, which was text-only). QMC2 has been rebuilt from scratch as a Qt 4 project. Parts of the design and code were inspired by its predecessor. The new design was made as flexible as possible to minimize dependencies from frontend- and CLI-related MAME changes, which was a major deficiency of QMamecat. QMC2 uses a template-based MAME configuration scheme, which can easily be enhanced with additional command line options (defined in an XML template file).
Release Notes: Besides many bugfixes, the major changes and addition this time include a polished MAME variant logo, improved support for foreign emulators, zlib integration, and experimental support for Qt 5. A speedup in the merge processing, fixes for interpreting new emu stats, and support for CHD v5 are added to the ROMAlyzer. The integrated mini-Web-browser allows new browser windows to be created (pop-up) and change zoom with wheel. Five new translations (completed/mostly completed) are added for Italian, Romanian, Spanish, Swedish, and Greek.
JID is a system which can deserialize, update, and reserialize a map of 100,000 entries in half a millisecond on an i7 at 3.40 GHz. Serialization/reserialization timings are largely independent of the size and complexity of the table entries. Incremental serialization/deserialization is used to achieve high performance.
Release Notes: The examples no longer use classes and methods deprecated in JActor 3.1.0.
JActor is a high-performance Java Actor implementation that can send 150 million messages per second, making it one of the fastest Actor implementations in any language.
Release Notes: This release deprecates CallableRequest and its subclasses. It updates examples and Factory to use the revised API.
Cash is a shell written in C for Linux. As of now, it is rather minimal, and in the Alpha phase. It has tab completion, keeps a history file in the user's home directory, and has emacs-like line editing. More features will be added regularly.
Release Notes: Some new features have been added, including the ability to change options while in a running shell via a built-in, and the ability to view what options are set (also via a new built-in). Some bugs have been fixed.

GNUnet is a peer-to-peer framework with focus on providing security. All peer-to-peer messages in the network are confidential and authenticated. The framework provides a transport abstraction layer and can currently encapsulate the network traffic in UDP, TCP, HTTP, HTTPS, or direct 802.11 (WLAN). GNUnet supports accounting to provide contributing nodes with better service. The services built on top of the framework include anonymous file sharing and a virtual network providing IPv4-IPv6 transition via protocol translation over the P2P network.
Release Notes: This release adds a few features and fixes a number of bugs. It is protocol-compatible with GNUnet 0.9.2. There were various minor changes to the C APIs and the peer-internal protocols. This is the first release that has a compatible Java API. gnunet-java 0.9.3 can be used to access many of GNUnet's services from Java. This release also contains the beginnings of a new GNUnet-based Naming System (GNS), implementing a fully decentralized, backwards-compatible replacement for DNS (many important features and documentation are still missing, but the foundations are there).

JCards is a Java application designed to store and manage data in any format that the user defines. Instead of having multiple applications/spreadsheets/databases to manage passwords, tasks, shopping lists, etc., JCards allows the user to define a database that contains the fields they want. This is accomplished via an easy to use interface that requires no understanding of SQL or any other database jargon. JCards was initially developed for PDAs, but has now branched into another version that is suitable for the modern desktop environment and includes a number of extra features.
Release Notes: This release adds various bugfixes for minor annoyances.
Lhasa is a Free Software replacement for the Unix LHA tool, for decompressing .lzh (LHA/LHarc) and .lzs (LArc) archives. The backend for the tool is a library, so it can be reused for other purposes. Lhasa aims to be compatible with as many types of lzh/lzs archives as possible. It also aims to generate the same output as the (non-free) Unix LHA tool, so it will act as a drop-in free replacement.
Release Notes: This release adds support for extraction of Unix symbolic links and parsing of Unix-level 0 extended header areas. A decompressor has been added for the "old" PMarc compression algorithm (-pm1-).
Anywhere Board Games (ABG) allows users to play board and card games on the Web in real time on multiple machines (PC, Linux, iPhone, iPad, and Android). ABG runs as a Google+ Hangout App or as a standalone PHP app. Unlike other gaming environments, this one has a peculiar vision: projecting the main board on our table and using laptops or tablets to control players' hands (with other friends joining in remotely). It supports flipping, stacking, rotating, rolling, and shuffling of pieces, so most board and card games are playable.
dupeGuru Music Edition is a tool to find duplicate songs in your music collection. It can scan filenames, tags, or contents. dupeGuru ME is efficient. It can find your duplicate files in minutes, thanks to its quick fuzzy-matching algorithm. dupeGuru ME not only finds filenames and tags that are the same, but it also finds similar ones. For example, dupeGuru ME, with the right settings, can determine that "The White Stripes - Seven Nation Army" and "White Stripe - Seven Nation Armies" are duplicates. dupeGuru ME is customizable. You can tweak its matching engine to find exactly the kind of duplicates you want to find. dupeGuru ME is safe. Its engine has been especially designed with safety in mind. Its reference directory system as well as its grouping system prevent you from deleting files you didn't mean to delete. It lets do whatever you want with your duplicates. Not only can you delete duplicates files that dupeGuru ME finds, but you can also move or copy them elsewhere. You can also easily weed the bad duplicates out, thanks to the Power Marker.
Release Notes: This release adds a Deletion Options panel, greatly improves memory usage for big scans, adds a keybinding for the filter field on Mac systems, and upgrades the minimum requirements for Ubuntu to 12.04.

The adventure PHP framework (APF) is a utility to implement object oriented and generic PHP Web applications. It allows the developer to create programs in compliance with approved software design patterns, and the code base already has answers to many everyday problems. The framework cannot be described as an application that only has to be configured, but rather as a technical basis and design guide for the design of software. Further, it introduced many concepts and efficiency tools already well known in the Java community.
Release Notes: This release contains a huge update to the user management module. The data model now contains relations between groups and rolls to ease configuration. The administration UI has been greatly reworked. The new implementation of global error and exception handling eases configuration of custom routines. The Generic OR mapper now supports loading tree structures using the loadObjectTree() method. Service implementation is easier with the 1.15 DI container. Each service may define a setup method which is called after preparation to control initialization.

WML is a free and extensible Webdesigner's off-line HTML generation toolkit for Unix. It consists of a control frontend driving up to nine backends in a sequential pass-oriented filtering scheme. Each backend provides one particular core language. For maximum power, WML additionally ships with a well-suited set of include files, which provide higher-level features built on top of the backends core languages. While not trivial and idiot proof, WML provides most of the core features real hackers always wanted for HTML generation.
Release Notes: The build system was converted from a GNU Autotools-based one to one based on CMake.
Simple Podcast Manager is a podcast manager designed to work specifically with iTunes. It has no bells and whistles, but allows one to quickly and easily put a new podcast online.
Release Notes: Initial Freecode announcement.
IP Tables State implements the "state top" feature from IP Filter for IP Tables. "State top" displays the states held by your stateful firewall in a "top"-like manner. Since IP Tables doesn't have a built-in way to easily display this information once, an option was added to iptstate to do this.
Release Notes: This release improved support for ICMP6, including type/code display and state deletion. Unrecognized protocols are now printed as numbers instead of "unknown". The size of the "state" column is now dynamic, and ":" is no longer shown for connections without ports.
