The "Sound of Sorting" is a demo program containing many integer sorting algorithms. The algorithms are visualized in real time and augmented with sound effects, which are based on the values being compared. Animation speed and sound sustain can be customized while the algorithm is running. The visualization also highlights the algorithm's internal workings, which makes the demo program very useful for teaching sorting algorithms in an undergraduate computer science course. The program also counts the number of comparisons done by an algorithm, which can then be compared to the analytically derived value. The demo is implemented using the cross-platform toolkits wxWidgets and SDL, and can be executed on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
Release Notes: New sorting algorithms: TimSort, StoogeSort, and Slowsort. Renaming an array from a to A for easier reading and matching to SoS-Cheatsheet. Fixes compilation with older compilers and on Mac OS X. Adds a random algorithm button.

wsrep-enabled MySQL (previously MySQL/Galera cluster) can use wsrep replication providers, such as Galera, to form a cluster. wsrep API is an abstract replication interface that supports global transaction ID, true multi-master capability, conflict detection and resolution, and parallel applying and is transparent to triggers, stored procedures, and functions by replicating only final transaction results. Only the InnoDB storage engine and DDL commands are supported by this patch.
Release Notes: This is the first GA release of the wsrep patch for the MySQL 5.6 series. Major new features include support for MySQL GTID (requires enabled binlog) and optimizations in handling slave events.
Infovore is a map/reduce framework for processing large RDF data sets such as Freebase and DBpedia. It is based on Hadoop.
Release Notes: This release changes the organization of :BaseKB Now in that literals go into a file called literals #86 and predicates with a double dot (which are said to be erroneous) go into the dotdot file #87. Internally work has continued on the use of the set difference operator to validate Freebase data #83 and #70.
Galera wsrep provider is a dlopenable generic replication library which implements the wsrep provider API. It provides very efficient synchronous replication, and multi-master and "parallel applying" capabilities for opaque data buffers. Its primary focus is data consistency. A transaction is either committed on every node, or not at all. It works anywhere TCP works, including on WAN, and can utilize UDP multicast where available. It is used by the MySQL-wsrep patch project to create true multi-master MySQL/InnoDB clusters.
Release Notes: This is the first GA release in the Galera 3.x series. Major new features include the introduction of cluster "segments" to minimize WAN communication between data centers, an optimized writeset format, 128-bit write set checksums, and support for seamless interleaving of external replication events.
