Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.
Release Notes: Man pages for the Seed7 interpreter and compiler have been added. The makefiles have been improved to support the targets distclean and test. The operators radix and RADIX have been added to integer.s7i and bigint.s7i. Checks for the operators radix and RADIX have been added to chkint.sd7. Errors in bas7.sd7, concerning the function VARPTR and the statement OPEN, have been fixed. The function getLineWithMacrosApplied in makedata.s7i has been improved. The currency sign character has been added to several fonts. A check for an overflow of a cast from float to int has been added to chkccomp.c.

Internal communication errors on Facebook were resolved. An issues on start-up without an Internet connection was fixed. An issue with image loading on back navigation was fixed.
dd_rescue copies data from one file or block device to another. It is intended for error recovery, so by default, it doesn't abort on errors and doesn't truncate the output file. It uses large block sizes to quicken the copying, but falls back to small blocks upon encountering errors. It produces reports that allow you to keep track of bad blocks. dd_rescue features a number of optimizations, such as sparse block detection, preallocation, and Linux zerocopy (splice). It supports data protection by (multi-pass) overwriting of files or partitions with good and fast random numbers.
Release Notes: This release brings a few minor cleanups (messages) and one feature: it now has a mode where the output file/partition/disk is overwritten two (-3) or three (-4) times with random data and finally with zeros. This supports secure data destruction according to German data privacy standards from BSI.
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.

Release Notes: Various minor fixes and bulletproofing.

A tool for editing version-control repository history, reposurgeon enables risky operations that version-control systems don't want to let you do, such as editing past comments and metadata and removing commits. It works with any version control system that can export and import git fast-import streams, including git, hg, bzr, CVS, and RCS. It can also read Subversion dump files directly, and can thus be used to script production of very high-quality conversions from Subversion to any supported DVCS.
Release Notes: Translation of symlinks in Subversion repos was buggy, and is now fixed. repodiffer now has a useful and documented return value. The new --treediff option of repodiffer shows context diffs of mismatches.

The pxattr package aims at providing a single extended file attributes interface on all three systems (and others in the future). It consists of a single C++ module to be included in the application source code. The C++ file can also be compiled to a command line attributes management command and test tool.
Release Notes: This release has a much-improved commandline utility with a new function to dump and restore the extended attributes for a complete file tree across Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X systems. It also fixes a bug with handling the "user." prefix on Linux, which may introduce an incompatiblity with the previous release, motivating the major version number change.
Calcurse is a text-based calendar and scheduling application. It helps keep track of events, appointments, and everyday tasks.
