Frams' Shell Tools is a big collection of various (mostly Perl) scripts to make Unix everyday life at the command line interface more comfortable. They have grown in the author's last 20 years as a Unix user, programmer, and administrator. Some examples are: clp (Command Line Perl: a Perl "shell"), fpg (Frams' Perl grep: a grep with full Perl support), zz (generic clipboard), and nvt (Network Virtual Terminal: a better telnet for scripting).
Release Notes: New tools have been added, lf for recursive file searching and listing (lf = list files: a "best of" find, ls, and grep in one tool) and smtpsend to inject an RFC822-formated email message into an SMTP server. Many small bugs have been fixed.
MSS Code Factory is a rule-based expert system for translating application models to source code.
Release Notes: This release incorporates enhanced and upgraded support for PostgreSQL 9.1 and MySQL 5.5, providing more robust security restrictions and enforcement than Beta 16 did. It also includes support for DB/2 LUW 10.1, though there are runtime exceptions occurring in two test cases consistently which cannot be replicated under Eclipse, so consider this a qualified beta for DB/2.
libefgy is a set of C++ headers containing lots of templates loosely related to maths. The headers include templates for fractional arithmetic, big integers (and thus "big fractions"), calculating π, e, and some calculations with those (for trigonometrics), matrix manipulations, tuples, polar and Euclidian spaces in arbitrary dimensions, (perspective) projections, colour space manipulations in RGB and HSL, and assorted other things.
Release Notes: This release fixes bugs in the sphere primitive templates, includes a lot of cleanups (in particular to the OpenGL renderer), and introduces code to calculate two new primitives, the sierpinski gasket and the sierpinski carpet.
Release Notes: This release adds enhanced visuals, improved scripting capabilities, improved performance, and more bugfixes.
baresip is a bare-bones SIP user agent. It supports SIP, SDP, RTP/RTCP, and STUN/TURN/ICE, and IPv4 and IPv6, and is RFC-compliant and has portable C89 and C99 source code. A modular plugin architecture provides stdio, cons, and evdev user interfaces, celt, g711, g722, gsm, ilbc, l16, and speex audio codecs, alsa, coreaudio, gst, portaudio, oss, winwav, and mda audio drivers, speex_pp, speex_aec, speex_resamp, and sndfile audio filters, the avcodec video codec, avformat, quicktime, qtcapture, v4l, and v4l2 video sources, sdl, opengl, and x11 video display drivers, and srtp media encoding.
Release Notes: This release adds support for DirectFB video output, the Win32 input console, and the Win32 DirectShow video source, along with various improvements in audio/video handling and bugfixes and enhancements.
LibDWG is a library to directly read DWG files, a popular drawing format used in the CAD world.
Release Notes: This release adds support for DWG R2004 files.
Pride combines bash scripts, zenity, ant, ImageMagick, and the Android SDK tools to create a fast and simple POSIX alternative to Eclipse for Android development. It can be used from the desktop or command line or from any editor that makes exec calls, such as Emacs or Vim.
Release Notes: "Style" was added to the main menu. This runs "pr_personalPlate.sh" on the current project and overwrites old style elements in an existing project with new personal style files. A minor "bugfix" was made in the main pride script, where a null statement was simply removed.
F-IRC is an IRC client for the console. It supports multiple servers, scrollback, and all the basic features one can expect from an IRC client.
Release Notes: Colors (color-scheme) can now be configured (via the configuration file or from within the application itself). Duplicate nicks on an IRC server are now handled more gracefully.
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: This release fixes a few bugs and adds some useful new features. New features are focused on the data output system. Metadata export has been improved to include case notes, case outcome, total interview time, interview time for the last call, the last number dialed, and the operator who made the last call. SPSS output now includes the caseid. Bugfixes include fixing the display of prefill fields and avoiding a database error at the start of interviews under certain circumstances.
Aspose.Pdf is a .NET PDF component to write PDF documents without using Adobe Acrobat. It supports form field creation, document, text and page properties, color space, text, heading, and attachment settings. It lets you create PDF documents by using its API with XML templates and XSL-FO files. It also converts HTML, XSL-FO, and MS Word to PDF. Other features include image formats and security features, hyperlinks, the ability to add footnotes, automatic fitting to content in a table, decimal Tab stops, HTML tags, and keeping paragraphs together when breaking pages.
Release Notes: This release includes new features like PDF-to-EPUB conversion, dynamic XFA to PDF or image conversion, getting the status of a PDF printing job (finding out whether the process completed successfully or got stuck in the middle of execution), and specifying a particular page number to open when viewing the document. PDF-to-EPUB conversion is as simple as EPUB-to-PDF conversion. This release also includes other fixes related to converting PDF to HTML, converting PDF to image, creating tables inside a PDF file, manipulating bookmarks, and converting PDF to PDF/A.
Samba is a software suite that provides seamless file and print services to SMB/CIFS clients. It is freely available, unlike other SMB/CIFS implementations, and allows for interoperability between Linux/Unix servers and Windows-based clients.
Release Notes: This is the first stable release of the new Samba 4.1 release series.
Telize is a REST API built on Nginx and Lua which gets a visitor's IP address and queries location information from any IP address. It outputs JSON-encoded IP geolocation data, and supports both JSON and JSONP.
Release Notes: This version adds support for Timezones and for the GeoIP ASN database, introducing new fields in the JSON output, which now contains information about timezone, ASN, and ISP. Logging of internal redirects has been prevented in order to save disk space when logging, and the API is now enforcing strictly-defined URL endpoints.
XMMS-SID is an XMMS1 plugin which provides support for playing the so-called "SID tunes". It uses the libSIDPlay1 and/or libSIDPlay2 emulator engines, which provide a virtual emulation/simulation of the Commodore 64 computer and its SID sound chip. It features a file info window, support for STIL database, a song length database, and good configurability.
Release Notes: This release adds support for libSIDPlay-FP v1.1.x, and some translation and documentation updates.
