No download Website 28 Jul 23:53 Pioneer Alpha 24


Pioneer is a space adventure game set in the Milky Way galaxy at the turn of the 31st century. The game is open-ended, and you are free to explore the millions of star systems in the game. You can land on planets, slingshot past gas giants, and burn yourself to a crisp flying between binary star systems. Pioneer has a sneaking resemblance to Frontier: Elite 2.

Release Notes: Background stars now fade out in daylight. Ships which can't fit shielding can't purchase it at atmosphere ports. Attempting to fly in an atmosphere without shielding causes quick death. The Lua console now provides autocompletion. A target indicator is shown on docking waypoints when clearance has been granted to assist with manual docking. Assorted bugfixes have been made.

Download Website 28 Jul 04:54 ITK 4.2.0


The National Library of Medicine Insight Segmentation and Registration Toolkit (ITK) is a software system to support the Visible Human Project. Segmentation is the process of identifying and classifying data found in a digitally sampled representation. Registration is the task of aligning or developing correspondences between data. For example, in the medical environment, a CT scan may be aligned with an MRI scan in order to combine the information contained in both.

Release Notes: ITK now supports the latest GCC 4.7.0, as well as Visual Studio 10 without requiring any workarounds. The team also added GPU modules for Finite Difference, Smoothing, Thresholding, and Registration. The new patch-based denoising filter improves noise reduction by calculating and applying parameters locally, thus accommodating noise variations within an image. The infrastructure to support Remote Modules was added along with a new physics-based non-rigid registration technique.

It brings together the ability to display and work with satellite imagery, gridded data (primarily from model output), and surface, upper air, and radar data within a unified interface. The IDV "reference application" provides many of the standard 2-D data displays that other Unidata packages (e.g. GEMPAK and McIDAS) provide. It also provides 3-D views of the atmosphere and allows users to interactively slice, dice, and probe the data to create cross-sections, profiles, animations, and value read-outs of multi-dimensional data sets. Computation and display of built-in and user-supplied formula-based derived quantities is supported as well.

Download Website 28 Jul 04:51 HOL 7


Higher Order Logic (HOL) is a programming environment in which theorems can be proved and proof tools implemented. Built-in decision procedures and theorem provers can automatically establish many simple theorems. An Oracle mechanism gives access to external programs such as SAT and BDD engines. HOL 4 is particularly suitable as a platform for implementing combinations of deduction, execution, and property checking.

Release Notes: HolSmtLib now also supports Z3 proof reconstruction for goals that involve fixed-width words and a translation from HOL into SMT-LIB 2 format. HolQbfLib supports checking for both validity and invalidity of certificates for Squolem 2.02. wordsSyntax.mk_word_replicate computes the width of the resulting word when applied to a numeral and a fixed-width word. The system supports syntax for decimal fractions. This syntax maps to division terms of the form n / 10m. In the core system, this syntax is enabled for the real, rational, and complex theories.
