fping is a ping-like program which uses the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request to determine if a target host is responding. fping differs from ping in that you can specify any number of targets on the command line, or specify a file containing the lists of targets to ping. Instead of sending pings to one target until it times out or replies, fping will send out a ping packet and move on to the next target in a round-robin fashion.
Release Notes: Bugs were fixed.

MeteoIO is a C++ library whose main design goals are: providing meteorological data format/protocol independent data access; providing safe and robust I/O; making I/O code as unobtrusive and simple as possible for the user; providing ready to use data to the user (transparent caching, filtering, resampling, and spatial interpolation); enabling unattended use from an I/O point of view; offering high modularity so that individual elements of the library can easily be replaced/expanded/added; and by its modularity, help interdisciplinary development, each module being targeted at a specific developer profile.
Release Notes: A large fraction of the code has been refactored, enabling new data handling algorithms as well as significant performance improvements. A new stage has been added: data generators based on parametrizations. Lots of micro-optimizations, for SIMD as well as suggested from static analysis have been implemented alongside new numerical approximations. Lots of rarely triggered bugs have been fixed both in the main code and in the data plugins. More precise Dates and Timers have been implemented. The error reporting has been improved and exceptions can now display a graphical message box.

Freedomotic leverages modern enterprise integration patterns and distributed computing architectures, along with cross-language APIs for extensions.
Release Notes: This version solved some problems with interfaces and implementations for data persistence. Support for authentication was added. At startup, default admin/admin credentials are present. The OpenJPA dependency was moved from harvester to freedomotic-model.

It also supports image output in GIF, PNG, BMP, and JPEG formats. Other features include barcode size and color settings, rotation angles, and captions. You can render barcodes to images, printers, HTTP servlet responses, and graphical objects.
Release Notes: The rotation angle of a detected barcode is now returned. Bugs were fixed and recognition support was enhanced. Some of the issues addressed in this release are copying speed of the images, recognition of QR codes, Pdf417 barcode recognition, generation of barcodes with custom sizes, DataMatrix code recognition, and barcode encoding.

SCCS programs now are able to set file timestamps with nanosecond granularity.
Gcmc is a front-end language for generating G-code, SVG, and DXF for CNC mills, lathes, laser cutters, and other numerically controlled machines employing G-code, SVG, or DXF. The language is a context-free grammar created to overcome the archaic format of G-code programming, but can be used more generally for many targets. Gcmc aims to be more readable and understandable than G-code and enable programmatic designing. Gcmc makes extensive use of vector mathematics to support the 3D nature of CNC machining. It handles units as millimeters, mils (inch), degrees, and radians and performs automatic conversions where necessary.
Release Notes: This release adds an index operator  on lvalues and allows rvalues to be constants on index operations. Built-in functions to_*() now support vectors and vectorlists to generalize operation. Library functions are added to the tarball to perform standard tasks, which can be included in any program. A test-framework for checking behaviour is added with the first tests. Fixes include testing corner-cases on operations with undef values.
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.

JS Diff Viewer is a library that can find and view the difference between two text strings. It takes two text strings, uses the diff algorithm to find the differences between them, and returns a list of changes to patch the original string to become the final string. The patch list shows which characters are added or removed to change one string into the other. The difference between the text strings may be computed in three modes: by character, by word or by line. The object can also format the strings to view them as HTML, showing which characters are added and removed with special insertion and deleted styles. The example page works as a tool to interactively view the changes as the user changes the texts before and after the changes are applied.
Release Notes: This release added support for finding the difference between the text strings in three modes: by character, by word, and by line.
