Scid vs. PC is a powerful chess toolkit. It has extensive database and PGN file handling capabilities, and can be used to play chess on the internet (with FICS), against a computer chess opponent, or for chess grandmasters to prepare for tournament matches. Additionally, Scid vs. PC can run automated computer tournaments with chess engines playing against each other.
Release Notes: The handiest change in this release is support for very large chess boards. Other changes include a gamelist context menu, docking changes, and improvements to analysis, annotation, and computer tournament features.
Rescatux is a GNU/Linux rescue CD that comes with Rescapp, a nice wizard that will guide you through your rescue tasks. It can restore Grub to the MBR update a Grub configuration, perform filesystem checks, fix a Windows MBR, and more. Features that can indirectly assist the rescue process include chat programs to let you reach human online help, a share log (automatic pastebin), and a share log that uses formatting appropriate for posting on a forum.
Release Notes: Non-standard partitions such as LVM or encrypted ones in some setups made Rescapp not detect hard disks properly. This issue has been fixed. The cryptsetup package has been added so that advanced users can luksmount their partition with a command line interface.
white_dune is a graphical VRML97/X3DV editor, simple NURBS/Superformula 3D modeller, animation tool, and VRML97/X3DV commandline compiler in development. VRML97 (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) is the ISO standard for displaying 3D data over the Web via browser plugins ("HTML for realtime 3D"). X3DV is the direct successor of VRML97. VRML97 and X3DV have support for animation, real-time interaction, and multimedia (images, movies, and sounds). white_dune can read, create, and display VRML97/X3DV files and let the user change the scenegraph/fields. It also has support for stereoscopic view via "quadbuffer"-capable stereo visuals, and support for 3D input devices like a joystick, spaceball, or magnetic tracker.
Release Notes: Adds better requirements for the RPM package on Fedora 19. Replaces a bad default gimp command line with pinta command line.
R128GAIN is an FFmpeg and SoX-based EBU R128 compliant loudness scanner for audio and video files. It helps you normalize the loudness of your audio and video files to the same level.
Release Notes: This release adds a command option preset supporting applying the gain to video files, removes a restriction with respect to editing the command option on the native Windows GUI, adds a section on how to apply the gain by using the command option to the documentation, and adds "Why You Won't Post at Hydrogenaudio Forum" to the documentation.
PRTree is a Java package which implements a priority R-Tree, a spatial index. It can be used to find objects inside a query rectangle very quickly.
Release Notes: Adds secondary filters to the find methods.
The Goblin and the Butterfly (TGATB) is a 2D/3D client for the MMORPG of the same name.
Release Notes: A summoning skill was added. The client has now a "Make" window to make stuff. Some daily quests have been implemented. Variable window size, configurable in the config (*.cfg) file. The inventory has now a "Use" button to use stuff like food (to eat it) or scrolls (to read them). Some more NPCs for quests and to teach you stuff.
isort automatically sorts and sections Python imports. It can turn even the most messy import structure into nice clean sections without duplicates. It provides a command line utility, Python library, and Kate plugin for convenient use.
Release Notes: This release adds support for forcing all imports to be on their own line.
irked is an IRC client that runs as a daemon accepting notification requests as JSON objects presented to a listening socket. It is meant to be used by hook scripts in version-control repositories, allowing them to send commit notifications to project IRC channels. A hook script that works with git, hg, and svn is included in the distribution.
Release Notes: The -i option enables immediate sending of one line in the foreground.
BackupLoupe helps you analyze the time and space used by Apple's Time Machine facility and gives you greater control over the backup process. It can quickly identify the items which take up the most space. Its history feature shows how many versions of an item are available and when they were saved, as well as allowing quick navigation between versions. Drag and drop can be used to restore items to any location. Backed up items can be revealed in the Finder. File types are instantly identified. Files can be previewed and opened. Items can be excluded from future backups without opening Time Machine's preferences. Multiple Time Machine disks can be handled, as can backups in non-standard locations.
Release Notes: Background indexing now works for OSX Mavericks as well. File type information is no longer truncated when a file cannot be read due to insufficient permissions. Updated documentation.
Red language is a native-code compiled functional, imperative, symbolic, and homoiconic programming language that re-uses most of REBOL's syntax and semantics. Both static and JIT compilation support are planned. A strong emphasis is made on concurrency and both task and data parallelism support using an actor-like abstraction and parallel collections (Scala-like). The target range of usage spreads from low-level system programming (thanks to the built-in Red/System C-level DSL) and embedded systems, up to high-level scripting, with an optional REPL console.
Release Notes: This release brings to Red an enhanced port of the amazing Rebol Parse embedded DSL. Among enhancements are the COLLECT/KEEP combo for deep extraction and a Parse event-oriented API for extending Parse features. A powerful bitset! datatype has also been added to complement Parse. See the many examples of Parse usage in the blog entry for this release.
