389 Directory Server (formerly Fedora Directory Server) is a full-featured LDAPv3 compliant server. In addition to the standard LDAPv3 operations, it supports multi-master replication, fully online configuration and administration, chaining, virtual attributes, access control directives in the data, Virtual List View, server-side sorting, SASL, TLS/SSL, and many other features. The transactional Berkeley DB 4.2 is used as its data store and a full plug-in API allows developers to extend the the functionality of the server in many ways, and many of the core features of the server are already implemented using this API. The server is very mature, having started out as Netscape Directory Server.
Release Notes: More bugfixes: CLEANALLRUV, userpassword and schema reload, others.
Strategico is an engine for running statistical analysis over groups of time series. It can manage one or more groups (projects) of time series: by default, you can get data from a database or CSV files, normalize them, and then save them inside the engine. The first statistical analysis implemented inside Strategico is the "Long Term Prediction": it automatically finds the best model that fits each time series. Some of the models implemented are mean, trend, linear, exponential smoothing, and Arima. Strategico is scalable: the statistical analysis over each time series (of a project) can be run separately and independently. It is suggested that you set up an HPC Cluster (High Performance Computing) and/or use a resource scheduler like slurm. It is developed with R, one of the most famous statistical languages.
Release Notes: A new Web application with new features and a new layout using Bootstrap. Updated to the latest features of the LTP package. More reports (statistics, suspicious items, etc.).
Protracer is a simple raytracer originally written in 1999 as a university course project. Please be aware that, despite the name, there is nothing especially professional about Protracer. The name is meant to be a pun on the Protracker music tracker application. It currently supports a very limited subset of the POV-Ray file format.
Release Notes: This release adds a test script.
HPC Toolkit is a suite of multi-platform tools for profile-based performance analysis of applications.
Release Notes: This release adds support for AMD vector extensions. In hpcrun, there is an API for the application to start and stop sampling, an I/O sample source to count the number of bytes read and written, and a Global Arrays sample source. A problem with GNU binutils on 64-bit PowerPC that caused performance data to be misattributed because function "D" symbols were overlooked has been fixed. In hpctraceviewer, support has been added for filtering out threads and processes that are not of interest. There are other enhancements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: This version includes support for named destinations on HTML links.

Release Notes: When a folder is added or removed in the settings, the songs are updated without the need of a restart.
LDAP Account Manager (LAM) is a web frontend for managing entries (e.g. users, groups, DHCP settings) stored in an LDAP directory. LAM was designed to make LDAP management as easy as possible for the user. It abstracts from the technical details of LDAP and allows persons without technical background to manage LDAP entries. If needed, power users may still directly edit LDAP entries via the integrated LDAP browser.
Release Notes: This release supports Kolab 2.4, Puppet, and RFC2307bis automount entries. The self service also supports setting fields to read-only.
Asymptote is a powerful descriptive 2D and 3D vector graphics language for technical drawing, inspired by MetaPost but with an improved C++-like syntax. It provides for figures the same high-quality level of typesetting that LaTeX does for scientific text. Asymptote is a programming language as opposed to just a graphics program. It can exploit the best features of script (command-driven) and graphical user interface (GUI) methods. High-level graphics commands are implemented in the language itself, allowing them to be easily tailored to specific applications.
Release Notes: Numerical resolution issues with the PRC camera orientation and viewportshift were fixed. The lighting of NURBS surfaces was fixed. The special 8192 strlen NSIS build was now correctly reinstated, with stubs, to prevent the installer from overwriting Windows PATH environment variables > 1023 bytes.
SVN Access Manager is a powerful tool for managing access to subversion repositories. The tool provides user and group management and access rights (read/write) to dedicated paths in a repository as well.
Release Notes: This is an enhancement update regarding the user administration. You can define three additional custom fields according to your needs.
libextractor is a library used to extract meta-data from files of arbitrary type. It is designed to use helper-libraries to perform the actual extraction, and to be trivially extendable by linking against external extractors for additional file types. The goal is to provide developers of file-sharing networks, file managers, and WWW-indexing bots with a universal library to obtain meta-data about files. It includes a shell-command and bindings for Java (JNI) and Python.
Release Notes: Major changes to the plugin mechanism now allow out-of-process plugins full random access to the entire file. Most plugins have been rewritten to the new plugin API. The external (libextractor) API remains unchanged and compatible with 0.6. As part of the rewrite, many plugins were changed to use standard 3rd party libraries (libjpeg, libtiff, libgif, libtidy, and libmagic) for parsing. A new plugin based on gstreamer replaces many existing multimedia plugins. Automated test cases for (almost all) of the plugins were also written, and the documentation was updated.
GNUmed is a comprehensive scalable software solution for electronic medical practices with an emphasis on privacy protection, secure patient centric record sharing, decision support, and ease of use. It is intended to become a sophisticated decision support system that will elevate the quality of medical care that can be delivered.
Release Notes: This release fixes the problem of a disappearing substances grid when activating another patient as well as a botched due/expiry verification on saving a provider inbox message.
DynamicReports is a Java reporting library based on JasperReports. It allows you to create dynamic report designs and it doesn't need a visual report designer. You can very quickly create reports and produce documents that can be displayed, printed, or exported into many popular formats such as PDF, Excel, Word, and others.
Release Notes: This version adds the ability to remove group labels from the table of contents, allows you to set a default report font, and has various bugfixes.
Chicken is a Scheme compiler that translates most of R5RS Scheme into relatively portable C. It supports fully general tail-call recursion, first-class continuations, and has a very flexible and efficient interface to C and C++. Chicken implements several extensions to the Scheme language: lightweight threads, pattern matching macros, dynamic loading of compiled code, and various object-oriented paradigms, such as TinyCLOS, and others. The library system includes hundreds of convenient modules for practical use.
Release Notes: Interfaces and functors have been added to the module system. The type system has been extended. A large number of bugfixes and general cleanup have been done in the compiler, runtime system, core libraries, and syntax expander.
LemonLDAP::NG is a modular Web SSO based on Apache::Session modules. It simplifies the building of a protected area with a few changes in the application. It manages both authentication and authorization and provides headers for accounting, so you can have full AAA protection for your Web space. LemonLDAP::NG is a complete rewrite of LemonLDAP. All components needed to use it and to administer it are included in the tarball. However, all modules developed for LemonLDAP may not work with LemonLDAP::NG.
Release Notes: This is a minor release with important bugfixes and enhancements: cross-domain with HTTPS cookies, multi-backend compatibility with SOAP and LDAP chaining, SAML session management, and SOAP service to delete notifications.
Zero Install is a decentralized cross-distribution software installation system. It allows software developers to publish programs directly from their own Web sites, while supporting features familiar from centralized distribution repositories such as shared libraries, automatic updates, and digital signatures. It is intended to complement, rather than replace, the operating system's package management. 0install packages never interfere with those provided by the distribution.
Release Notes: Support was added for OS-specific dependencies (e.g. for dependencies only needed on Windows) and for constraints in native package implementations (e.g. Debian's python3-gi package cannot be used with Python 2). "0install man" allows the man command to work with 0install applications. "0install digest" now has an option to display the manifest. A bug in the PackageKit support which meant it sometimes failed to detect candidate packages was fixed.
Xdgmenumaker is a command line tool that generates application menus using xdg information by scanning *.desktop files in all $XDG_DATA_DIRS/applications directories. All applications are sorted according to the main categories as specified by freedesktop.org. Generated menu entries are localised according to the current user locale settings. It currently supports generation of menus for Fluxbox, IceWM, and WindowMaker. Icons from the current GTK+ icon theme can be included in the menus, when they are supported by the output format.
Release Notes: Menus are now always created in a submenu, unless the new --no-submenu option is used (applicable to fluxbox and icewm menus).
slkbuild is a script inspired by makepkg from Arch that greatly simplifies the package building process in Slackware and derivatives. It parses an easy-to-create SLKBUILD meta-file and from that creates a conventional build script that follows all of the Slackware packaging standards and that can be run on its own. The advantage of using slkbuild is that it ensures package uniformity and allows for an easy-to-edit meta-file in the event that one might require customization or might need to update the script for new releases. It also makes the build process much quicker, since it takes care of downloading the source, untarring, gzipping man and info pages, stripping binaries, making sure that the menu entry for a graphical application is compliant, as well as a host of other things.
Release Notes: SLKBUILD templates were added for software that uses gconf or mateconf. URLs are modified if they contain an "=" symbol. Partially downloaded files are removed if the download has failed.
phpMyAdmin is a tool intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web. It can create, rename, and drop databases, create/drop/alter tables, delete/edit/add fields, execute any SQL statement, manage keys on fields, create dumps of tables and databases, export/import CSV data, and administrate one single database and multiple MySQL servers.
Release Notes: An error when seaching a table having many columns has been fixed.
Blue Mind is a messaging and collaboration platform. It offers scalable shared messaging, calendars and contacts with advanced mobility (iPhone, iPad, Android, etc.), and Outlook and Thunderbird connectivity support. Designed with simplicity as a goal, it uses Web 2.0 technologies with a Javascrit UI, offline Web capability, and a Web-services-oriented pluggable architecture.
Release Notes: This release candidate added a mail distribution list in the Web interface that synchronizes with Outlook and Thunderbird. Some fixes were made in the Calendar, webmail, contact integration, and mobile synchronization.
fpgatools is a toolchain for programming flexible programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The only supported chip at this time is the xc6slx9, a cheap (circa $10 U.S.) but powerful 45nm-generation chip with about 2400 LUTs, block ram, and multiply-accumulate devices. The principles of fpgatools are to reach the maximum physical performance of the chip, to provide fast development cycles, to be an independent toolchain which only depends on other Free Software, and to be a lightweight C implementation without a GUI.
Release Notes: With this release, the first design has been verified: hello_world is an unclocked AND gate design which was verified in a xc6slx9.
din is a software musical instrument and audio synthesizer. Bezier curves are used to draw and sculpt waveforms, create gating and modulation (FM and AM) patterns, and create delay feedback and volume patterns. You can also create an unlimited number of drones and sculpt their waveforms. It uses JACK to output audio, and supports MIDI, OSC and IRC bot for input. din can be extended and customized with Tcl scripts.
Release Notes: phrasor now continues playing on the microtonal keyboard when the instrument is keyboard-keyboard.
Armadillo is a C++ linear algebra library (matrix maths) aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use. Integer, floating point, and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS libraries. A delayed evaluation approach, based on template meta-programming, is used (during compile time) to combine several operations into one and reduce or eliminate the need for temporaries.
Release Notes: This release contains fixes for handling sparse submatrix views. It also has minor speedups for sparse matrices.
Bio::SeqReader provides a lightweight alternative to Bioperl when all you really need is a helper for reading sequence data. The Bio::SeqReader::Fastq class correctly handles FASTQ input with multiline sequence or quality data.
Release Notes: Documentation improvements. Explicit incorporation of IO::Handle to deal with some apparently platform-specific misbehavior casting stdin as an appropriate filehandle. The modules remain dependent only upon the Perl core.
