containers is a simple implementation of containers for Linux, making secure containers as easy to create and use as a traditional chroot. It comprises three utilities, contain, inject, and pseudo, which use the kernel support for user namespaces merged in Linux 3.8.
Release Notes: This is the first stable release of the containers tools, ready for production use. Since the previous version 0.9, documentation in README and TIPS has been fleshed out, "inject" has been corrected to work with network namespaces, and "contain" now tries harder to remove any stray temporary directories on error.
rpmrebuild is a tool to build an RPM file from a package that has already been installed. It can be used to easily build modified packages, and works on any Linux distribution that uses RPM.
Release Notes: This release adds the tag DISTTAG (feature request 2) and tags PRETRANS and POSTRANS. The code will not test installation if it works on an rpm file.
mobiki is a small wiki engine implemented as one PHP file. It is optimized for usage with mobile devices, slim HTTP requests, and fast content delivery. It will stay small, understandable, and easy to hack (no bells or whistles).
Release Notes: The code has experienced a major refactoring, and is no longer spaghetti code. Many bugs have been fixed, and the filesystem layer now is XSS safe. All critical characters are mapped. Most importantly, the password is no longer stored in clear text and the algorithm uses the crypt() call instead of md5(). (Uses are asked for it at installation time). The password and all the other configuration is now saved in a separate config.php file, so individual customizing is not overwritten when installing a new version of mobiki.
fio is an I/O tool meant to be used both for benchmark and stress/hardware verification. It has support for 19 different types of I/O engines (sync, mmap, libaio, posixaio, SG v3, splice, null, network, syslet, guasi, solarisaio, and more), I/O priorities (for newer Linux kernels), rate I/O, forked or threaded jobs, and much more. It can work on block devices as well as files. fio accepts job descriptions in a simple-to-understand text format. Several example job files are included. fio displays all sorts of I/O performance information, including complete IO latencies and percentiles. Fio is in wide use in many places, for both benchmarking, QA, and verification purposes. It supports Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, OS X, OpenSolaris, AIX, HP-UX, Android, and Windows.
Release Notes: This release adds basic support for an ACT (aerospike) profile, fixes atomic write support, adds various parsing fixes, makes a big revamp of the included graphing support, makes the IOPS log includes bandwidth, adds support for specific randomness settings for both reads and writes, adds support for random vs. sequential blocksize settings, fixes a potential verification failure, and adds multicast support for the net ioengine.
Dada Mail can help you manage a mailing list, offers complete support for safe, closed-loop opt-in subscriptions, sends out mass mailings, keeps an archive of your messages, and allows you to share your messages in many ways. It runs on your Web hosting account and you interact with it through your Web browser, making it available anywhere you have a connection to the Internet. You do not have to rely on a third-party list management system with costly monthly fees. It is rich with features, but tries to keep it simple. It is designed to favor flexibility, extensibility, and ease-of-use over core speed or extremely flashy but hard-to-use features. It is designed to be installed, set up, and understood by regular people who have Web sites, but has enough advanced features to entice more proficient users. If you've ever installed a bulletin board or blog software, you should be able to install Dada Mail without too many problems. Dada Mail can scale. You can install Dada Mail on most any basic hosting account and start sending out messages. If your mailing list grows large, you can switch to sending with a more powerful third-party system, like Amazon SES, where there's potentially no limit on the number of emails you may send, all without having to change mailing list management systems or your hosting.
Release Notes: This release aims to fix a definite problem when sending mass mailings: There seemed to be a large pause between submitting a mass mailing and when the mass mailing actually starts up fully, to get sent.
Clonezilla is a partition or disk cloning tool similar to Symantec Ghost. It saves and restores only blocks in use on the hard drive if the file system is supported. For unsupported file systems, dd is used instead. It has been used to clone a 5 GB system to 40 clients in about 10 minutes.
Release Notes: The underlying GNU/Linux operating system has been upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2013/Jul/30). The SD card device (/dev/mmcblk0) is now supported. A bug has been fixed: partclone.log should not be appended to clonezilla log right after partclone is run in the background on a local disk to remote disk mode.
GNU xorriso creates, loads, manipulates, and writes ISO 9660 filesystem images with Rock Ridge extensions. Files can be copied in and out. The session results get written to optical media or to filesystem objects. Rather than needing external tools for ISO 9660 production and CD/DVD/BD burning, it is a static compilation of libburnia-project.org. Thus GNU xorriso depends only on fundamental operating system facilities.
Release Notes: Several small bugs were fixed. The capabilities of xorriso to serve frontend programs in dialog mode have been improved.
libburnia is a project comprised of libraries and binaries for reading, mastering, and writing optical discs. It provides libburn, a CD/DVD/BD burn library, libisofs, a manipulation library for ISO 9660 filesystems, and libisoburn, a ISO 9660 multi-session library. On top of them there is cdrskin, a cdrecord emulator, and xorriso, a all-in-one application for ISO 9660 multi-session operations which additionaly provides a limited emulation of mkisofs.
Release Notes: cdrskin has acquired the ability to copy audio tracks to .wav files. It can extract CD-TEXT in a form which is readable for humans and for cdrskin itself. Several small bugs have been fixed in xorriso. Its ability to serve frontend programs in dialog mode has been improved.
SmartGit/Hg is a graphical user interface for Git and Mercurial which can work with SVN repositories. It supports cloning from common repository providers (e.g., GitHub, Assembla), assists Git newbies, and also offers the advanced, powerful Git features. It provides several tools to help create clean commits, for example by allowing the user to commit just parts of changes files and reordering and squashing unpushed commits. If you are using GitHub or GitHub Enterprise, SmartGit/Hg can work easily with pull requests (creation, resolving) and commit comments. SmartGit/Hg ships with a built-in SSH client, file comparer, and merge tool which are capable of syntax coloring for many languages.
Release Notes: This release adds minor improvements and fixes a couple of bugs.
FileBot is a tool for renaming movies, TV shows, or Anime, and for downloading subtitles. It's smart, streamlined for simplicity, and just works. It includes commandline interface for automation.
Release Notes: This update brings lots of improvements for movie and episode detection as well as better subtitle auto-selection.
GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disk, CD-ROM, etc.) to another, trying to rescue the good parts first 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 new options "-1, --log-rates" and "-2, --log-reads" have been added. The short name of option "--generate-mode" has been changed to "-G".
Release Notes: This release adds four new circle construction tools for circles that are tangential to one, two, or three other entities (a solution for Apollonius's problem).
WeatherLog is an application for keeping track of the weather and getting information about past trends.
Release Notes: This release improves how information is calculated, and changes the application name.
relax is a program designed for the study of the dynamics of proteins and other macromolecules though the analysis of experimental NMR data. It supports exponential curve fitting for the calculation of the R1 and R2 relaxation rates, calculation of the NOE, reduced spectral density mapping, the Lipari and Szabo model-free analysis, study of domain motions via the N-state model (or ensemble analysis) and frame order dynamics theories using anisotropic NMR parameters such as RDCs and PCSs, the investigation of stereochemistry in dynamic ensembles, and the analysis of relaxation dispersion.
Release Notes: This release marks a major shift of relax towards becoming a scientific computing environment specialized for the study of molecular dynamics using experimental biophysical data. It is designed to be a replacement for numerical computational environments such as GNU Octave, MATLAB, Mathematica, Maple, etc. Most changes are for the power user, as they are in the backend. The infrastructure changes are comprehensive and include the reorganisation of most of the relax code base, a large expansion of the relax library, and general improvements and fixes throughout.
etm is an acronym for Event and Task Manager. It provides a simple, intuitive format for using plain text files to store event, task, and other data items, a command line interface for viewing stored information in a variety of convenient ways, and a cross-platform, PyQt-based GUI for creating and modifying items as well as viewing them. Displayed items can be grouped by date, context, keyword, or project and can be filtered in various ways. A display of busy and free times is also supported, as is a ledger view of time spent that is suitable for client billing. Alarms are supported for events and repetition for both events and tasks in a powerful and flexible manner.
Release Notes: This release adds the ability to specify extents using &e for individual jobs within group tasks.
Cacti is a complete frontend to RRDTool. It stores all of the necessary information to create graphs and populate them with data in a MySQL database. The frontend is completely PHP driven. Along with being able to maintain graphs, data sources, and round robin archives in a database, Cacti also handles the data gathering. There is SNMP support for those used to creating traffic graphs with MRTG.
Release Notes: This release fixes security issues and minor bugs.
