Globus is a project to provide robust, secure, peer-to-peer distributed computing on supercomputers, clusters, and other high-performance systems. It differs from other such network toolkits in that it is tuned to the needs of high-end machines.

Release Notes: Numerous bugfixes and enhancements.

Download Website 28 Jul 04:49 Geometry Description Markup Language 3.0.1


GDML is a markup language specifically designed for geometric data exchange, primarily written with physics in mind. It consists of a language schema, means of manipulating the geometric data, and I/O.

Release Notes: The GDML schema for materials was updated to include ionisation potential. A minor update was made to the User's Manual.

No download Website 28 Jul 04:48 Generic Mapping Tools 4.5.8


Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) is a free, public-domain collection of about 60 UNIX tools that allow users to manipulate (x,y) and (x,y,z) data sets (including filtering, trend fitting, gridding, projecting, etc.) and produce Encapsulated PostScript File (EPS) illustrations ranging from simple x-y plots through contour maps to artificially illuminated surfaces and 3-D perspective views in black and white, gray tone, hachure patterns, and 24-bit color. GMT supports 25 common map projections plus linear, log, and power scaling, and comes with support data such as coastlines, rivers, and political boundaries.

Release Notes: Bugs were fixed.

Download Website 28 Jul 04:47 Geant4 4.9.6 beta-01


Geant4 is a toolkit for the simulation of the passage of particles through matter. Its application areas include high energy physics and nuclear experiments, medical, accelerator, and space physics studies.

Release Notes: A new model of gamma nuclear interactions using the Bertini cascade was added. The Bertini model for pi-, K-, and Sigma- for nuclear capture at rest was introduced, along with the WentzelVI model for multiple scattering of e+ and e- above 100 MeV in all physics lists for HEP applications. Shen and Ion/proton cross-sections for ions are used. The cross-section for light ions including deuteron was improved. The INCL cascade model can now handle heavy-ion collisions. A new electro-nuclear interaction model has been added. A combination of FTF and Precompound models is used for anti-proton and anti-Sigma+. There were other enhancements and bugfixes.

Download Website 28 Jul 04:43 FreeRTOS 7.1.1


FreeRTOS is a scalable miniature real time kernel designed specifically for very small embedded systems that run on microcontrollers or FPGAs.

Release Notes: The Cortex-M3 Tasking port was added. The separately distributed ports for Cortex-M0 IAR, Cortex-M0 GCC, and Cortex-M4F GCC were merged in. The Windows simulator was fixed to reduce usage of trace macros. A new trace macro was added, traceMOVE_TASK_TO_READY_STATE(). The FreeRTOS MPU port was updated. The xQueueReset() and xSemaphoreGetMutexHolder() functions were introduced.

Download Website 28 Jul 04:41 CFITSIO 3.31.0


CFITSIO is a library of C and Fortran subroutines for reading and writing data files in the FITS (Flexible Image Transport System) data format. It simplifies the task of writing software that deals with FITS files by providing an easy to use set of high-level routines that insulate the programmer from the internal complexities of the FITS file format.

Release Notes: A 32-bit limitation on low-level table reads was removed. Much faster byte-swapping algorithms were implemented, accelerating FITS on little-endian machines. Data type conversion on losslessly compressed files was improved. Support for IBM System Z mainframes was improved. Numerous bugs were fixed.

Download Website 28 Jul 04:40 CFD General Notation System 3.1.3-4


The CFD General Notation System (CGNS) provides a general, portable, and extensible standard for the storage and retrieval of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis data. CGNS is designed to facilitate the exchange of data between sites and applications, and to help stabilize the archiving of aerodynamic data.

Release Notes: ADF relative links and cmake/configure issues were fixed. Functions were added for reading and writing GridLocation data for boundary conditions. CPEX 0027 (Time-dependent Connectivities), CPEX 0030 (Zone Sub-Regions), and CPEX 0031 (General SIDS Improvements) were implemented. A Fortran-specific bug with reading element name strings was fixed. Minor HDF5 bugs were fixed.

ganglia-activemq monitors ActiveMQ queue sizes with Ganglia.

Release Notes: This release added optional VDED support for tracking enqueue/dequeue rates.

Download Website 28 Jul 04:38 ROOT 5.34/01


ROOT is an OO framework for large-scale scientific data analysis and data mining. It contains an efficient hierarchical OO database, a C++ interpreter, advanced statistical analysis, visualization, introspection, documentation, networking, and GUI classes. The command/scripting language is C++, and large scripts can be compiled and dynamically linked in. Using the PROOF (Parallel ROOT Facility) extension, large databases can be analyzed in parallel. The system runs on all known POSIX platforms, Windows, and MacOS X.

Release Notes: Numerous bugfixes and enhancements.

Download Website 28 Jul 04:37 LEAF 4.3


LEAF is a secure, feature-rich, customizable embedded Linux network appliance for use in a variety of network topologies. Although it can be used in other ways, it's primarily used as a Internet gateway, router, firewall, and wireless access point.

Release Notes: The highlights of this release are automatic loading of pre-requisite packages, an upgrade of BusyBox to 1.20.2, dnsmasq supporting dhcpd6 and router advertisements, various other new upstream versions, improved boot support for USB devices, and support for Apple Filing Protocol through netatalk.

Download Website 28 Jul 04:36 Exponent CMS 2.0.8


Exponent CMS is a content management system for Web sites. It allows site owners to easily create and manage dynamic Web sites without necessarily directly coding Web pages or managing site navigation. Exponent uses an intuitive and flexible content editing system that allows Web pages to be edited on the page as it is displayed. This avoids the need for more back-end administration or for navigating many administration pages to add a simple line of text. You can simply visit the page you need to edit as if you were a site visitor, and make the change.

Release Notes: This release focuses on enhancing list management (tags, categories, comments) by adding bulk processing, adds manual sorting to the news module and random sorting to the links module, adds tabbed and accordion views to the photo album; adds a quick upload feature to the WYSIWYG editor, implements email alerts for the blog, news, and file downloads (subscribe to updates), plus many other tweaks, fixes, online documentation updates, and features.

Download Website 28 Jul 04:35 OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution


OFED is a transport-independent software stack for high-performance computing and enterprise data centers.

Release Notes: Updated kernel support. Minor enhancements and bugfixes.

No download Website 28 Jul 04:34 Jodd 3.3.7


Jodd is a Java utility library and set of frameworks. Jodd tools enrich the JDK with many powerful and feature rich utilities. It helps with everyday tasks, and makes code more robust and reliable. Jodd frameworks is set of lightweight application frameworks, compact yet powerful. Designed following the CoC, DRY, and SCS principles, it makes development simple, but not simpler; you get 90% of the features with 10% of the usual effort.

Release Notes: Important improvements and bugfixes! A HtmlStapler filter was added. Lagarto and Jerry now support conditional comments much better. DbOomManager introduced table and column naming strategies. Wildcard path-style matching was added everywhere.
