Plgen (Playlist Generator) is a tool that sorts files for MP3 players in a user defined order. Cheap MP3 players often come with no playlist capabilities. In addition these players often make use of the FAT16/32 file system, leading to confusion when the playing order is not alphabetical on the device even though it is shown as alphabetical in the file explorer.
Release Notes: This release introduces the shuffle command. All files can now be rearranged in random order.
bitstring is a Python module that helps to make the creation and analysis of binary data as simple and natural as possible. Objects can be constructed from integers (big and little endian), floats, hex, octal, binary, byte data, iterables, or files. They can be sliced, joined, reversed, packed, unpacked, inserted into, overwritten, and otherwise operated upon with simple functions or slice notation. They can also be parsed, searched, and navigated in, similar to a file or stream. Internally the data is efficiently stored as byte arrays. It is available for Python 2.6 and later (including Python 3).
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug in which bitstrings could be modified by being used in an append.
CIL is a frontend for the C programming language which facilitates program analysis and transformation. CIL will parse and typecheck a program, and compile it into a simplified subset of C. For example, in CIL, all looping constructs are given a single form and expressions have no side effects. This reduces the number of cases which must be considered when manipulating a C program. CIL has been used for a variety of projects, including CCured, a tool which makes C programs memory safe. It supports ANSI C, as well as most of the extensions of the GNU C and Microsoft C compilers. A Perl script acts as a drop-in replacement for either gcc or Microsoft's cl, and allows merging of the source files in your project. Other features include support for control-flow and points-to analyses.
Release Notes: New features: support for static local variables and GCC’s "computed gotos" (or "labels as values"). Various bugfixes.
iBoostUp tunes up and optimizes your Mac by purging unneeded files, fixing your hard disk, giving you performance recommendations, protecting your privacy by removing cookies, displaying system information, and much more.
Release Notes: This release adds a new system tweaks feature, various internal tweaks, and bugfixes.
TMSU is an application that allows you to organise your files by associating them with tags. It provides a tool for managing these tags and a virtual filesystem to allow tag-based access to your files.
Release Notes: This release removes use of Sqlite bulk insert functionality so that TMSU may be used with older versions of Sqlite, such as those which ship with the current releases of the major Linux distributions.
Wmconfig is a text-based menu generation tool for various X window managers for desktops. Toolkits like Qt or Gtk are not required. It uses a simple configuration layout and the configuration may be edited with a text editor.
Release Notes: This release adds I18n support and translations for French, German, and Russian.
gzochi is a framework for developing massively multiplayer online games. A server container provides services to deployed games, which are written in Guile Scheme, that abstract and simplify some of the most challenging and error-prone aspects of online game development: Concurrency, data persistence, and network communications. A very thin client library can be embedded to provide connectivity for client applications written in any language.
Release Notes: This release adds important functionality to the transaction handling system in the gzochid container, enabling application transactions to time out and to be retried automatically. The Scheme API for defining managed record types has been simplified. A new reference client implementation which integrates easily with GNU GLib has been added.
BBCT is a simple database app for your baseball card collection. You can add information about the cards in your collection, view details about individual cards, and filter the list of cards according to a limited set of criteria. BBCT helps you organize your collection and quickly look up which cards you own.
Release Notes: This release adds a combo box for baseball player positions.
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: This release adds a "reset" command like the tag command, a fix for the buggy debranch command, and more speed tuning.
Bibfilex is software to create and manage archives of bibliographical items (books, articles, etc.) according to Biblatex structure and rules. It is far less advanced than other bibliographic managers like JabRef, and allows only a few customizations. Its strength is speed and lightness, especially when used with many items. It uses SQLite as a database. It can store the items according to each of the entry types described in the Biblatex manual (book, article, etc.), import the content of a file in Biblatex format (like a JabRef database, a Mendeley BibTex exported file, or a Google Books BibTex downloaded file), export data to a Biblatex file (like a JabRef database), locate an item just typing its author name, title, etc. filter the items by selecting a keyword in a list, filter the items according to three different conditions (or to manually modify the SQL statement of the filter to make it more suitable or complex) or according to the \cite commands contained within a Latex document, associate various attachments (files of every kind) with each item, activate autocompletion of data in each field with “Ctrl + Space”, automatically create unique BibTex keys according to a pattern defined by the user, and specify the fields (columns) shown in the grid view of the data. It is also possible to replace the \cite and \printbibliography commands in a Latex document with extended citations and bibliography, which are composed according to a user-defined pattern, to export the Latex file in other formats more easily.
Release Notes: This release adds bugfixes and buttons to browse the items.
WebBot is a Web development toolset which is designed to sit nicely on top of your existing infrastructure. It is built with a collection of Open Source tools which together enable building Python Web applications the same way native ones are built and running these applications on top of the leading Python frameworks (such as Django and Google's App Engine). As a result, the WebBot framework encourages reuse, concise code, rapid development, and happy developers.
Release Notes: This release fixes a small issue with WebBot app creation for Django.
Ruzzle Solver PRO is an offline solver (aka cheater) for Ruzzle puzzles. It aims to be usable, fast, and easy to extend and improve for both users and developers thanks to a sensible and modular design. It allows you to add, replace, or update the dictionaries and the score tables, thus supporting an arbitrary number of languages.
Release Notes: This release fixes a serious bug with score calculation and reduces the memory footprint.
Giada is a minimal, hardcore audio tool for DJs and live performers. Just pick your sample, drop it in any channel, and start the show by using this tiny piece of software as a loop machine, drum machine, sequencer, live sampler, or effect (VST) host. Giada aims to be a compact and portable virtual device for production use and live sets.
Release Notes: This release features support for an unlimited number of channels, as well as a deep internal refactoring.
CCruncher is a project for quantifying portfolio credit risk using the copula approach. It is a framework consisting of two elements: a technical document that explains the theory, and a software program that implements it. CCruncher evaluates the portfolio credit risk by sampling the portfolio loss distribution and computing the Expected Loss (EL), Value at Risk (VaR), and Expected Shortfall (ES) statistics. The portfolio losses are obtained simulating the default times of obligors and simulating the EADs and LGDs of their assets.
Release Notes: This release adds support for the Latin Hypercube Sampling method, increases overall program speed by a factor of 2-5, and solves a bug in the aggregation procedure.
Siam Quantum (SQ) is a quantum chemistry program that calculates wave function and total energy of molecules. It currently supports Hartree-Fock and MP2 methods using Gaussian-type basis functions. Geometry optimization is also possible. The source code is well documented because it was initially designed for academic purposes so that students can easily understand. However, Siam Quantum can also produce high quality results for research purposes because the energies calculated are comparable to the ones produced by other software packages such as Gaussian or GAMESS, with the errors in the order of 10^-6 Hartrees, which can be further reduced with more strict cut-off.
Release Notes: The Minimum Energy Crossing Point (MECP) between two spin states can now be calculated.
