The Common Pipeline Library provides a highly robust set of functions for manipulating signals and images. It is primarily intended for the building of VLT instrument pipelines, but is also useful for generic data handling. It includes a number of useful low-level data types, medium-level data access methods, standard implementations of commonly-used signal processing and data reduction tasks, and dynamic loading of "recipes" for data processing.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release.
VULCAN (Viscous Upwind aLgorithm for Complex flow ANalysis) offers computational fluid dynamics for subsonic speed through hypersonic turbulent reacting and non-reacting flows on a variety of serial and parallel computational platforms. The computational cost of propulsion flow analysis is reduced through the use of special turbulent wall treatments, multi-grid methods for elliptic and space marching schemes, and conditioning of the governing equations to reduce numerical stiffness. Physical modeling capabilities are improved through the inclusion of models for compressibility, Reynolds stress anisotropies, turbulent diffusivity, finite rate chemistry, and turbulence/chemistry interaction effects. VULCAN can simulate two-dimensional, three-dimensional, or axi-symmetric multi-block problems.
Release Notes: This release adds numerous bugfixes and enhancements.

The Web10G project (a follow-on from Web100) was created to produce a complete host-software environment that will run common TCP applications at 100% of the available bandwidth, regardless of the magnitude of a network's capability. Web10G has endowed TCP with better instrumentation. This instrumentation is the foundation for both the TCP autotuning performed in process-level code and the process-level tools designed to locate bottlenecks within the following major subsystems: the sending application, the sending OS, the Internet path, the receiving OS, and the receiving application. Measurement tools have also been built on this instrumentation to display performance indicators to end-users, as well as provide internal diagnostics for network and system administrators.
