This database contains values for vitamins, minerals, fats, calories, protein, carbohydrates, fiber, etc., and includes the essential polyunsaturated fats, Omega-3 and Omega-6. Nutrient levels are expressed as a percentage of the Daily Value, the familiar standard of food labeling in the United States, but also can be fully customized. Foods can be added from recipes or food labels, and nutrient intake can be graphed. The program is completely menu-driven and there are no commands to learn.
Release Notes: This release introduces the new USDA Nutrient Database SR25, and allows current installations to have their existing meal records reinterpreted with the new database.
The xterm program is the standard terminal emulator for the X Window System. It provides DEC VT102/VT220 and Tektronix 4014 compatible terminals for programs that can't use the window system directly. If the underlying operating system supports terminal resizing capabilities (for example, the SIGWINCH signal in systems derived from 4.3bsd), xterm will use the facilities to notify programs running in the window whenever it is resized.
Release Notes: Several bugfixes and new features, including new escape sequences and a new icon.
Finit is a small SysV init replacement with process supervision similar to that of daemontools and runit. Its focus is on small and embedded GNU/Linux systems, although it is fully functional on standard server and desktop installations. Finit is fast because it starts services in parallel; it then supervises and automatically restarts them if they fail. This can be extended upon with custom callbacks for all services, hooks into the boot process, or plugins to extend the functionality and adapt Finit to your needs. Finit is not only fast, it’s arguably one of the easiest to get started with. A complete system can be booted with one simple configuration file.
Release Notes: This release featured a cleanup of the public plugin API, with some new functions. A plugin hook was added to the end of service startup. Installation now defaults to /sbin/finit and /usr/, not /usr/local. Makefile installation paths were fixes. Binaries and .so files are now stripped, and support for $(CROSS) toolchain stripping was added. Better support was provided for distributions and packagers with install-exec, install-data, and install-dev targets in Makefile. This is useful with different $DESTDIRs.
GoAnywhere Services allows trading partners and employees to securely connect to your organization and easily download or upload files. Popular file transfer and encryption standards are supported without the need for proprietary client software.

Release Notes: Highlights in this release include new virtual folders and SMB network shares. Virtual folders give trading partners access to specific files and folders with permissions set for read, write, rename, or delete. These folders can be made private for a specific partner or shared with multiple partners. Network shares let administrators define connections to other file servers on diverse platforms in the organization’s network using the popular SMB/CIFS protocol.
"aura" is a desktop (X root window) background setter. It picks images randomly from specified paths, skipping those that are too small or have inappropriate aspect ratios, and rescales them by cropping solid margins, resizing with cubic interpolation and then the liquid rescale algorithm to fit the desktop with as little quality loss as possible. Images are labelled in the corner using embedded tags. It can changes images on a timed basis or when triggered by SIGHUP or the CLI, and tracks previous and blacklisted images.
Release Notes: This release adds support for the enlightenment (e17) desktop environment.
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.

SourceAFIS is a fingerprint recognition/matching SDK (library), or more generally an Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS). It essentially compares two fingerprints and decides whether they belong to the same person. It can quickly search a large database of registered fingerprints. It comes with an easy-to-use API (pure .NET and Java) plus assorted applications and tools.
Release Notes: This cleanup release focuses on upgrades of the underlying components.
Fqutils provides a basic set of bioinformatics command line tools for working with sequence data in FASTQ format. It complements Greg Hannon's fine Fastx Toolkit suite. One characteristic of Fqutils is that it correctly handles the full FASTQ format as described by the published standard, which specifically allows multi-line sequence and quality score information per record. Fqutils is intended to be useful as part of the early portions of post-sequencing pipelines and quality assessment processes.
Release Notes: This initial 0.4 release adds fqu_cull for extracting a subset of a FASTQ stream. It also adds man pages.
