It is based on the FuelPHP framework. It uses an HTML5 interface, the jQuery UI framework, and the Wijmo and TinyMCE plugins.
Release Notes: It is now possible to manage several sites and/or languages in the same back office (multi-context). There are two new applications: the forms application (run surveys, collect data, get subscriptions) and the slideshows application (show your pictures). The 'Build your app' wizard allows you to create a new application easily. The documentation is now on ReadTheDocs.
Clonezilla is a partition or disk cloning tool similar to Symantec Ghost. It saves and restores only blocks in use on the hard drive if the file system is supported. For unsupported file systems, dd is used instead. It has been used to clone a 5 GB system to 40 clients in about 10 minutes.
Release Notes: The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2013/Feb/06). A "-m 1024" option was added to Partclone. The udisks package was included in Clonezilla live.
Makeflow is a workflow engine for executing large complex applications on clusters, clouds, and grids. It can be used to drive several different distributed computing systems, including Condor, SGE, and the included Work Queue system. It does not require a distributed filesystem, so you can use it to harness whatever collection of machines you have available. It is typically used for scaling up data-intensive scientific applications to hundreds or thousands of cores.
Release Notes: In WorkQueue, memory errors that lead to a SEGFAULT, race conditions in signal handling for workers, and incorrect handling of the -C option where a worker would not use the same catalog server as work_queue_pool were corrected. Tasks now have a unique process group to properly kill all task children on abort. Escape codes such as \n and \t are now properly interpreted in Makeflow files.
libutil++ provides a number of C++ utility classes for items such as IP Address (v4/v6), Socket, Command Line, Compression, Encryption, Logging, String, Time, Interface, and Task classes.

A missing unistd.h include was added for GCC 4.7. clear() was added to IPAddress. Functions for getting MAC addresses were added to Interface. A test program was added for verifying library calls. This is also useful as an example of how to use the library.
strongSwan is a complete IPsec implementation for the Linux, Android, Maemo, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X operating systems. It interoperates with with most other IPsec-based VPN products via the IKEv2 or IKEv1 key exchange protocols. The focus of the strongSwan project is on strong authentication mechanisms using X.509 public key certificates and optional secure storage of private keys on smartcards through a standardized PKCS#11 interface. A rich choice of modular plugins adds additional features like Trusted Network Connect or advanced cryptographical algorithms.
Release Notes: The strongSwan Trusted Network Connect functionality supports all IETF Standard PA-TNC attributes and a new OS IMC/IMV pair using these attributes to transfer Linux or Android operating system information. Interoperability with Windows XP has been improved by supporting PKCS#7 certificate containers and legacy NAT traversal protocols. The test framework has been migrated from User Mode Linux to KVM, making it faster and more robust.

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 added the ability to render text as text rather than as graphical objects when printing documents. The printing feature was made more robust when using the Document and PdfViewer classes. One of the new features regarding document conversion is During conversion from PDF to MS Word, headers and footers are now converted properly. Many classes including Table, Row, Cell, MarginInfo, BorderInfo, etc. are now in the Aspose.Pdf namespace rather than in Aspose.Pdf.Generator.
syslog-ng is a syslogd replacement for a wide variety of UNIX systems that supports IPv6 and is capable of transferring log messages reliably using TCP and SSL and filtering the content of messages using regular expressions. Both RFC3164 and RFC5424 style messages are handled, but more esoteric formats like BSD process accounting logs are supported too. Apart from regular text files, it supports storing messages into SQL and MongoDB databases, and forward messages to local processes via pipes or UNIX domain sockets. This makes syslog-ng ideal as an integration platform. syslog-ng supports extracting structured information from the traditionally text based syslog via csv-parser(), db-parser(), and patterndb. Tag based classification, rewriting messages, and outputting messages in JSON is also possible. This makes syslog-ng ideal for preprocessing events for further analysis, be that home-grown scripts or SIEM systems. syslog-ng scales well on today's multi processor and multi-core systems: reaching 1,000,000 messages per second is a reality for the simplest use cases.
Release Notes: This version added junctions and channels for even more flexible configuration, a community contributed AMQP destination, improved JSON support including a parser, and many improvements related to value pairs.

GLB is a user-space TCP load balancer similar to Pen. It lacks most advanced Pen features, as the aim was to make a user-space TCP proxy that is as fast as possible. It can utilize multiple CPU cores. A list of destinations can be adjusted in runtime. Destination "draining" is supported. It supports "least connected", "round-robin", "random", and "source tracking" balancing policies.
Release Notes: New in this release are a "single" balancing policy where all connections are directed to a single destination chosen by highest weight, a --top option that forces balancing only between the destinations with the highest weight, and a SO_KEEPALIVE option on destination connections (default: on) for timely detection of the destination failure.
SymmetricDS Pro is software for data replication, change data capture, and data transformation in a heterogeneous enterprise environment.

Release Notes: This release changes Yupana by Florio (multiplication algorithm updated), Yupana by Wassen (representation: seeds displacement added), and documentation (User Manual updated).
Siege is a regression test and benchmark utility. It can stress test a single URL with a user defined number of simulated users, or it can read many URLs into memory and stress them simultaneously. The program reports the total number of hits recorded, bytes transferred, response time, concurrency, and return status. Siege supports HTTP/1.0 and 1.1 protocols, GET and POST directives, cookies, transaction logging, and basic authentication. Its features are configurable on a per user basis.
Release Notes: This release includes numerous bugfixes and function ports so it will run better and compile on older systems. It also includes several new features such as timestamped output, a -q/--quiet option to suppress stdout, and conditional exits on -g/--get requests. On those requests, siege will now exit 0 if it receives at least one HTTP 200 response. Otherwise, it will exit 1. These last two features have been added to make the program more script-friendly.

Parrot and Chirp are user-level tools that make it easy to rapidly deploy wide area filesystems. Parrot is the client component: it transparently attaches to unmodified applications, and redirects their system calls to various remote servers. A variety of controls can be applied to modify the namespace and resources available to the application. Chirp is the server component: it allows an ordinary user to easily export and share storage across the wide area with a single command. A rich access control system allows users to mix and match multiple authentication types. Parrot and Chirp are most useful in the context of large scale distributed systems such as clusters, clouds, and grids where one may have limited permissions to install software.
Release Notes: Parrot watchdog now properly honors minimum wait time. Parrot now reports the logical executable name for /proc/self/exe instead of the physical name.
EasyTAG is a utility for viewing and editing tags for MP3, MP2, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, Speex, MP4/AAC, MusePack, Monkey's Audio, and WavPack files. It features a simple and attractive GTK+ interface.
