Concurrency Kit provides a plethora of concurrency primitives and lock-less and lock-free data structures designed to aid in the design and implementation of high performance scalable concurrent systems. It was designed to minimize dependencies on operating system-specific interfaces, and most of the interface relies only on a strict subset of the standard library and more popular compiler extensions.
Release Notes: It is recommended that users of ck_ht and ck_hs upgrade to this release for significant performance enhancements. It is recommended that users on RMO or PSO architectures (--memory-model=rmo or on PPC*) upgrade if they rely on ck_rwlock or ck_bytelock. This release includes significant enhancements to the PPC32 port.
Bluefog is a tool that can generate an essentially unlimited number of phantom Bluetooth devices. It can be used to test Bluetooth scanning and monitoring systems, make it more difficult for attackers to lock onto your devices, or otherwise complicate the normal operation of Bluetooth devices. Technically, Bluefog can work with just one Bluetooth adapter, but it works much better when you connect multiple adapters. Up to four radios are currently supported simultaneously.
Release Notes: Improvements to random MAC generation. A "Loiter" mode has been added.
DGen/SDL is an emulator for Sega Genesis/Mega Drive systems. The latest version supports save states, interlace mode, Game Genie, Linux joystick support, compressed ROM images, and other nice features.
Release Notes: Many debugger-related enhancements and bugfixes (stepping over multiple instructions, instructions tracing, registers and memory can now be modified, and breakpoints finally fixed). VDP enhancements (interrupts, planes switching, 2-cell vertical column scrolling, sprites boxing, sprites priority, collision, and overflow). ARM-specific CPU cores (Cyclone 68000 and DrZ80, which are much faster on the Raspberry Pi). MJazz has been implemented, and joystick/joypad/keyboard bindings have been completely reworked.
Kwave is a 24-bit sound editor that allows simple operations, such as cut, copy, and paste. Some more effect functions with little complexity (Simple Filtering, Delay) are also implemented. More sophisticated analysis functions (spectrograms, sonagrams, pitch determination) are underway or partially done.

GitFS is a fuse- and git-based remote filesystem with local cache for disconnected operation. It does periodic commits and pushes/pulls to keep a local shadow file system in sync with a remote repository. The filesystem should continue to work when you are disconnected. Merging after disconnected updates from multiple locations is left to git.
Release Notes: This release works at least minimally on Linux and Mac OS X. It's been tested on Gentoo Arm, RedHat X86_64, and OS X. ("Tested" means run at least once without catastrophic effects.) It's slow and likely still very buggy. You likely need to use -o foreground for anything to work.
Tk-Yupana emulates the Yupana, an ancient calculating device of the Incas.
Release Notes: This release translates the User Manual into English.
aTunes is a full-featured audio player and manager. It currently plays MP3, Ogg, wma, wav, FLAC, MP4, and radio streams allowing users to easily edit tags, organize music, and rip audio CDs.

pyPEG is a quick and easy solution for creating a parser in Python programs. pyPEG uses a PEG language in Python data structures to parse, so it can be used dynamically to parse nearly every context free language. The output is a plain Python data structure called pyAST, or, as an alternative, XML.
Release Notes: This release adds the ability to have class int as grammar, supporting optional attributes in xml2thing() and thing2xml().
Measuring Buffer is an enhanced version of buffer with many new features: It supports display of throughput, memory-mapped file I/O for huge buffers, IPv4/IPv6 network support, MD5 hash value calculation, and output to multiple targets in parallel (distribution mode).
Release Notes: This emergency release disables hash calculation support due to potential data corruption when the buffer runs full. Please do not use hash calculation support of mbuffer for now. This issue is under investigation.
unserding is a simple pub-sub messaging library, much like 0mq or nanomsg, without all the transports they support and without the reliability promise, made for heavy-duty realtime delivery of time series.
Release Notes: This release provides a new, leaner, message-based API: ud_socket() to acquire a socket and instantiate pub/sub'bing, ud_close() to close the socket, ud_pack_msg() to pack a message onto the socket, ud_flush() to send off packed messages, ud_chck_msg() to unpack messages from the socket, and ud_dscrd() to reset the receiver buffer. Compatibility with the old API is dropped.
Apache::Deploy is a (R)?ex Module to deploy Web sites into Apache and WAR-files into Tomcat. It eases the deployment process of many servers.
