It is also a database schema discovery and comprehension and schema documentation tool. You can search for database schema objects using regular expressions, output the schema and data in a readable text format, and find potential design issues with lint . The output is designed to be diff-ed against other database schemas. SchemaCrawler supports almost any database which has a JDBC driver, but for convenience is bundled with drivers for some commonly-used RDBMS systems. SchemaCrawler works with any operating system which supports Java.
Release Notes: There is a new -portablenames command line option to allow for easy comparison between databases by hiding foreign key names, constraint names, trigger names, index, and primary key names, and not showing the fully-qualified table name. Diagram generation on Linux works even when no GraphViz options are supplied. Trigger names show in the JSON output by default. A new configuration variable, schemacrawler.format.hide_trigger_names, suppresses trigger names in all output formats.
Video Contact Sheet *NIX creates a contact sheet (preview) from videos by taking still captures distributed over the length of the video. The output image contains useful information on the video such as codecs, file size, screen size, frame rate, and length. It requires MPlayer or FFmpeg and ImageMagick. It is confirmed to work on Linux and FreeBSD, and possibly other POSIX/UNIX systems.
Release Notes: Blank frame avoidance. Automatic profile loading from configuration. A new 'compact' profile. FreeBSD support has been restored, and there are other fixes.

Release Notes: A missing header file was added. The dependencies have been updated.
GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disk, CD-ROM, etc.) to another, trying hard to rescue data in case of read errors. GNU ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue logfiles, shows logfile contents, converts logfiles to/from other formats, compares logfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a logfile if the rescue is done.
Release Notes: The option "-l, --logfile-size" has been added. Trimming is now done from both edges of each non-trimmed block. The largest blocks are trimmed first. The largest blocks are now split first until logfile reaches "--logfile-size" entries.

It can be used as a fast console viewer, and is able to convert corrupted OpenDocument and Office Open XML documents. It can be used to recover text even if other recovery methods failed.
Release Notes: HyperText Markup Language (HTML) format support was introduced in this version. The ability to retrieve metadata like document author, last modification date, or number of pages was added. The new important feature is extracting text from annotations (comments) embedded in odt, doc, docx, or rtf files. Some malfunctions were also fixed.
Appointmind is a Web application that makes it possible for customers to select and schedule appointments from anywhere, which means that service providers and their employees spend less time on the telephone or answering emails. It can be used by contracting companies, physicians, consultants, and other service providers. The software is also suitable for administrative purposes or as a reservation tool for company conference rooms. Staff members can reserve the facilities conveniently over the intranet.
Release Notes: Appointment reasons can be grouped together now. A click on the group name shows all group members. User accounts can be deactivated via the admin area. Deactivated user accounts cannot make reservations. When reserving administrative appointments, the operator can now enter a custom text as the reason for that appointment. The column order in appointment and user list can be changed. Columns can be shown or hidden. The admin can now select a user from the user list and proceed to make a reservation for that user.
The sysstat package contains the sar, sadf, iostat, nfsiostat, cifsiostat, mpstat, and pidstat commands for Linux. The sar command collects and reports system activity information. The statistics reported by sar concern I/O transfer rates, paging activity, process-related activites, interrupts, network activity, memory and swap space utilization, CPU utilization, kernel activities, and TTY statistics, among others. The sadf command may be used to display data collected by sar in various formats. The iostat command reports CPU statistics and I/O statistics for tty devices and disks. The pidstat command reports statistics for Linux processes. The mpstat command reports global and per-processor statistics. The nfsiostat command reports I/O statistics for network filesystems. The cifsiostat command reports I/O statistics for CIFS filesystems.
Release Notes: sar, pidstat, and mpstat now stop and display their average statistics when they receive a SIGINT signal (crtl/c). pidstat now displays the task's UID for all tasks. The option -U has been added to pidstat; this option tells it to display the username of the task instead of its UID. When this option is followed by a user name, only tasks belonging to the specified user are displayed by pidstat.
Texmaker integrates many tools needed to develop documents with LaTeX in just one application.
Release Notes: The code has been ported to Qt5 (but this version can also be compiled with Qt4). From this version, Texmaker will be principally developed under Qt5. A keyboard shortcut has been added to toggle between the master and the current document. A specific "quick build" command has been added for the .asy files: the asymptote figures can now be compiled and displayed with the F1 shortcut.
Rikulo Stream is a Dart Web server for building fast and scalable Internet applications. It uses an event-driven and asynchronous I/O model to maximize scalability. It supports URI mapping/filtering, template technology, file-based static resources, and an MVC design pattern.

Blender is a free 3D animation studio. It includes tools for modeling, sculpting, texturing (painting, node-based shader materials, or UV mapped), UV mapping, rigging and constraints, weight painting, particle systems, simulation (fluids, physics, and soft body dynamics and an external crowd simulator), rendering, node-based compositing, and non linear video editing, as well as an integrated game engine for real-time interactive 3D, and game creation and playback with cross-platform compatibility.
Release Notes: Fixes for over 80 bugs since 2.66 relating to sculpting, rigid-body physics, user interface, and the game engine.
UFRaw is a utility for converting and manipulating raw images from digital cameras. It can be used as a stand-alone tool or as a Gimp plugin, and images can be batch processed using the commandline interface. UFRaw reads most existing raw formats using Dave Coffin's raw conversion utility DCRaw, and it supports basic color management using Little CMS, allowing the user to apply color profiles. For Nikon users, UFRaw has the advantage that it can read the camera's tone curves. Even if you don't own a Nikon, you can still apply a Nikon curve to your images.
Release Notes: A quick release due to a crash bug in the last release. The good news for this release is that it includes a Win32 installer. With this installer, UFRaw is a stand-alone application and no longer depends on GIMP. The upside is that it should work more reliably, without the DLL issues that many users had. One downside is that the installer is much bigger (9MB) and requires much more disk space (53MB). Another downside is that there is no GIMP plug-in; you only get the stand-alone version of UFRaw.
queXS is a Web-based CATI (computer assisted telephone interviewing) system. It integrates with queXML for creating questionnaires, LimeSurvey for collecting data, and Asterisk for VoIP telephony. It can be used to operate outbound telephone research centers.
Release Notes: Interviewers can now email an invitation to respondents to complete the questionnaire online. This major change required some structural changes to the database for security reasons, and therefore requires a database update. Further new features include the ability to restrict appointments to the interviewer making them. Also, operator and sample details can be edited and questionnaires can be deleted to keep the administration pages clean. In the code itself, the PHP short tags have been replaced with full tags, which should improve compatibility on more systems and shared hosting.
