Download Website 07 Aug 23:31 sem2dpack 2.3.8


SEM2DPACK is a simulator of 2D elastic wave propagation and fracture dynamics that applies the Spectral Element Method (SEM, similar to mass-lumped high-order finite element methods). Flexibility and accuracy are the main goals. Although the emphasis is currently on computational seismology and earthquake source dynamics, this tool might attract a wider audience in computational mechanics, research, and engineering.

Release Notes: This version can read mesh files exported by the mesh generation programs CUBIT and EZ4U, and introduces kinematic fault sources, heterogeneous coefficients for anistropic media, absorbing boundaries with arbitrary orientation, and Gaussian source time function and pre-processing utilities to compute critical time steps. Bugs are fixed in time-weakening friction and handling of fault tip nodes of single-sided faults.

Download Website 07 Aug 23:30 tvpvrd 4.2.0


tvpvrd is a PVR daemon for Linux that offers the ability to schedule and manage TV recordings using one or multiple installed analogue TV capture cards, e.g. Hauppauge. The daemon is interfaced either through its full command language via a provided command line shell or through a basic (built-in) Web interface provided by the built in micro Web server. The goal is to provide an advanced recording and transcoding (using ffmpeg) server without the need to configure databases or a complex GUI. The server is completely self-contained and uses an XML DB in plain text format to store future recordings.

Release Notes: This release adds the ability to set manual frequencies in the channel/station list, adds an "lf" command to display frequency tables, updates "ffmpeg" commands to match the latest version, tweaks the profile settings for transcoding, and adds a minor bugfix to make it possible to add extra options to the ffmpeg command from the tvpvrd configuration file.

Download Website 07 Aug 23:28 PdfMasher 0.7.2


PdfMasher is a tool to convert PDF files containing text into a ready-for-ebook set of HTML files. Most ebook readers support PDF files natively, but it's often a real pain to read those documents because you can't control the font size of the document and have to resort to the zooming feature instead. Another drawback of PDFs on ebook readers is that annotations are not supported. Unlike other tools that convert PDFs to ebooks, PdfMasher does not try to guess the role of each piece of text in the PDF, and instead asks the user about the role of each piece of text, and does so in an efficient manner.

Release Notes: This release fixes a bug causing crashes on Save Project.
