dispy is a Python framework for parallel execution of computations by distributing them across multiple processors in a single machine (SMP), or among many machines in a cluster or grid. The computations can be standalone programs or Python functions. dispy is well suited for the data parallel (SIMD) paradigm where a computation is evaluated with different (large) datasets independently (similar to Hadoop, MapReduce, Parallel Python). dispy features include automatic distribution of dependencies (files, Python functions, classes, modules), client-side and server-side fault recovery, scheduling of computations to specific nodes, encryption for security, sharing of computation resources if desired, and more.
Release Notes: This release fixes occasional deadlock/potential crash issues during dispy shutdown and crashes with dispyscheduler (shared scheduler).
pngcrush is an excellent batch-mode compression utility for PNG images. Depending on the application that created the original PNGs, it can improve the file size anywhere from a few percent to 40% or more (completely losslessly). The utility also allows specified PNG chunks (e.g. text comments) to be inserted or deleted, and it can fix incorrect gamma info written by Photoshop 5.0 as well as the erroneous iCCP chunk written by Photoshop 5.5.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug introduced in version 1.7.30 which caused pngcrush with the "-n" option to crash.

Urd is a Web-based Usenet binary download manager. It stores the newsgroup information in a MySQL database and aggregates the articles into sets of a single download (e.g. one album or movie). The Web interface can be used to search with regular expressions. It uses its own downloading daemon that has support for scheduling downloads and updating databases. URD can also download directly from NZB files and even create NZB files. Further features include custom scripts, multiple languages, a template based Web interface, support for multiple servers, automatic par2 and unrar support, and an intuitive user interface.
Release Notes: This release adds two new stylesheets with only a few images, implements the use of templates for email messages sent by urd, adds more statistics information, including spots count and distribution and a group sets count, and adds lots of minor improvements and bugfixes, as usual.

Release Notes: This release adds many bugfixes, internal changes for robustness, and enhancements, including an initial Cygwin port.
Zsh is a UNIX command interpreter (shell) which of the standard shells most resembles the Korn shell (ksh). It includes enhancements of many types, notably in the command-line editor, options for customising its behaviour, filename globbing, features to make C-shell (csh) users feel more at home and extra features drawn from tcsh.
Release Notes: Version 5.0.0 of zsh is the new stable release. There are many changes since the last stable release series, 4.2, of which the most important is handling of multibyte characters. The file NEWS in the distribution gives more information. The file README details some incompatibilities with previous versions, mostly minor. Users of the development release series will not see major changes since the previous release, 4.3.17.

Release Notes: Links to external files via the NeXus external linking mechanism have now been enhanced to take advantage of native HDF5 external linking. HDF5-based files can now have multiple "unlimited" dimensions. New API functions have been added to handle very large arrays. A new Python tree API has been added, along with a GUI Java-based NXvalidate program. The NeXus API now ensures thread safety, even if the underlying HDF/XML library is not built that way. The new application NXtraverse has been added. Other minor enhancements and bugfixes have been made.
Disk Drill can recover your data from virtually any storage device. Whatever storage device you lost data from, if you can connect it to a Mac, Disk Drill can scan it and recover your lost data. Even if you're currently having issues accessing your hard drive or external device directly, there's a possibility Disk Drill can rescue data from it.
Release Notes: This release updates Deep Scan with the new known file signatures, including DXF (Drawing Exchange Format), BPN (ArchiCAD Backup File), PLN (ArchiCAD Project File), PLA (ArchiCAD Project Archive), TPL (ArchiCAD Project Template), and WEBLOC (Mac OS X Website Location), improves recovery of MXF files which contain video (older versions of Disk Drill could produce corrupted 4KB recovered items), recovery of DNG raw images, and stability of Guaranteed Recovery protection features on heavy-loaded protected folders, and fixes all reported exceptions, crashes, and minor bugs.

Release Notes: This release is the result of a big push to improve stability. Most notable are the stability improvements for Hypertable on top of HDFS.
Libcvautomation is a GUI automation and testing tool based on image recognition and response. This program was designed as a direct replacement for Sikuli and Xpresser. Each solution had large problems with crashing, and both refused to function on Red Hat Linux and Ubuntu 12.04. The author really liked the way each of these programs approached GUI automation, but they simply didn't work. As such, a simple library was designed to integrate OpenCV and XTest, which can be used by BASH to drive GUI testing and automation, and works on both new and old Linux distributions.
Release Notes: This release significantly cleans the build process, adds a function to wait for an image to appear, and begins packaging for RPM and Debian.
Cyphertite is a tar-like secure remote archiver. It deduplicates, compresses, and encrypts data prior to transmission, providing total privacy while reducing unnecessary wire traffic. It seamlessly supports IPv6 and IPv4 on a variety of platforms.
Release Notes: This release adds significant internal reorganization to split core cyphertite functionality into a library (libcyphertite), adds and updates man pages for the new library, improves error reporting, and adds various bugfixes and code cleanup.
dotCMS is a J2EE Web Content Management System (CMS) which includes a number of features which other Open Source CMS solutions do not.

spectrwm is a minimalistic tiling window manager that tries to stay out of the way so that valuable screen real estate can be used for much more important stuff. It has sane defaults and does not require one to learn a language to do any configuration. It was written by hackers for hackers and it strives to be small, compact, and fast.
Release Notes: This release fixes an issue which caused a window/icon to be unable to be clicked or otherwise be manipulated (Skype, Thunderbird, etc.), fixes an issue which caused exiting the screen to make it turn garbled and blink badly on some Intel graphics cards, and makes spawn_position actually do what it is supposed to do.
quIRC is a lightweight console-mode IRC client. It uses terminal escape sequences to provide a clean character-cell based interface, handling things like multiple channels and servers (using tabs), input line editing (with bash-like keystrokes), and backscroll.
Release Notes: This release fixes several minor UI bugs, such as escaping backslashes during tab completion and the accidental bolding of the input line. It also fixes an error in logging which caused unprintables to be written as "\377777777" instead of "\377" if the char was signed.
