Diskless Remote Boot in Linux (DRBL) provides a diskless or systemless environment for client machines. It works on Debian, Mandriva, Red Hat, Fedora, and SuSE.

SQLScreens is a simple relational database screen form generator written in TCL/TK. It will let you create query screens very quickly by specifying what data (tables and columns) you want to see and what operations should be allowed (query/update, etc.). It will take care of creating the user interface and the behind-the-scenes SQL. SQLScreens can be used with different backend database systems, and includes direct support for MySQL, SQLite, and INFORMIX, and ODBC for others.

French Word Searches is designed for beginner to intermediate learners of French, such as those preparing for the UK GCSE French exam.

pngcrush is an excellent batch-mode compression utility for PNG images. Depending on the application that created the original PNGs, it can improve the file size anywhere from a few percent to 40% or more (completely losslessly). The utility also allows specified PNG chunks (e.g. text comments) to be inserted or deleted, and it can fix incorrect gamma info written by Photoshop 5.0 as well as the erroneous iCCP chunk written by Photoshop 5.5.
Release Notes: This version implements the "-reduce" option properly. This examines the input file to see if the color type, bit depth, and palette length can be reduced without loss, and if there is an opaque alpha channel which can be removed.
libpng (PNG library) is a collection of routines used to create and manipulate PNG format graphics files. The PNG format was designed as a replacement for GIF and, to a lesser extent, TIFF, with many improvements and extensions.
Release Notes: This release adds a "simplified API" and removes some symbols which were deprecated in libpng15.
pyexpander is a macro processor based on Python. Instead of simple text replacement, it offers evaluation of arbitrary Python expressions and execution of Python code. It features simple syntax definition: all expander commands start with a dollar sign ("$") followed by word characters, parameters, Python code enclosed in brackets, or a combination of these. The full power of the Python programming language can be used, including all operators, functions and modules. Any Python expression can be used to insert text. It also provides a Python library that you can use to develop other macro tools based on pyexpander.
Release Notes: The license was changed to GPL V.3.
ivykis is a library for asynchronous I/O readiness notification. It is a thin, portable wrapper around OS-provided mechanisms such as /dev/poll, epoll_create(2), kqueue(2), poll(2), and port_create(3C). ivykis was mainly designed for building high-performance network servers, but can be used as building block for any kind of event-driven application that uses poll(2)able file descriptors as its inputs.
Release Notes: This release fixes a shutdown deadlock in the win32 port, increases the maximum rate of delivery of inter-thread events when using the epoll poll method by about 40%, and contains initial changes to make the pthreads library an optional dependency on POSIX platforms.
Argus is a system and network monitoring application. It will monitor nearly anything you ask it to monitor (TCP + UDP applications, IP connectivity, SNMP OIDS, etc). It presents a clean, easy-to-view Web interface. It can send alerts numerous ways (such as via pager) and can automatically escalate if someone falls asleep.
Release Notes: This release adds Holt-Winters aberrant behavior detection, custom dashboards, ticket system integration, improved performance and scalability, and support for additional tests.
cegojdbc implements the JDBC driver for the Cego database system. a Java 1.5 runtime environment is required.
Release Notes: This release supports nested queries. While a statement is active, a nested statement can be executed using the same connection.
Ghostscript is a processor for PostScript and PDF files. It can rasterize these files to a wide variety of printers, devices for screen preview, and image file formats. Since applications tend to prepare pages for printing in a high-level format such as PostScript, most Unix users with low-level bitmap printers, such as inkjets, use GhostScript as part of the printing process. In addition, Ghostscript is capable of converting PostScript files, functionality comparable to Adobe Acrobat Distiller, but on the command line. In addition, Ghostscript is used for file import and viewing by a great many other applications, including xv, ImageMagick, gimp, and xdvi. Several GUI wrappers for viewing PostScript and PDF files exist, including GSview, ghostview, gv, ggv, and kghostview. This is far from a comprehensive list.
Release Notes: This release changes to the AGPL, improves thread safety, produces "Direct Web View" PDFs directly, extends the Font API to support PCL/PXL and XPS as well as Postscript/PDF, adds new options adding flexibility to the color management workflow, and adds a BigTIFF output option.
Oxygen XML Author is a simplified distribution of Oxygen XML Editor, specially created for content authors. It includes all the XML authoring, database access, and publishing features available in the Oxygen XML Editor. Besides the out-of-the-box support for the standard XML documentation frameworks (DocBook, DITA, TEI, XHTML), its unique design makes it easy to customize and extend to match a whole new range of editing needs.
Release Notes: This release streamlines XML reviewing by adding support for highlights and a review manager panel. It improves the searching capabilities by adding a new view for finding resources. The search returns results immediately while supporting complex text search expressions, such as multiple words, boolean operators, group searches, etc., as well as XML-aware filters. Documents from a Microsoft SharePoint server can now be accessed using the Data Source Explorer view, where you can edit, check in, or check out resources directly. oXygen XML updates and extends the API.
oXygen is an XML editor that supports any XML document, and works with XML Schemas, DTDs, Relax NG schemas, and NRL Schemas.
