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 no longer needs multiple tools to sort files on an MP3 player using the FAT filesystem, and now runs only under Linux. For developers, the QA is improved, Python coverage is introduced, and code coverage is appropriate on main parts. The code is easy to extend and contains example code and documentation Developers interested in development on Microsoft systems could either use v1.0 and modify Linux-specific parts or start developing from v0.8.
ocserv (OpenConnect VPN server) is an implementation of the AnyConnect SSL VPN protocol that is compatible with the OpenConnect VPN client. It is small, secure, and configurable, and depends on standard protocols like TLS 1.2 and Datagram TLS.
Release Notes: HTTP protocol handling was updated to fix issues with old openconnect clients. Support for TCP wrappers was added. An experimental compatibility mode for AnyConnect servers was added. There were several other updates.
ipset_list is a wrapper script for listing sets of the netfilter ipset program. It allows you to match and display sets, headers, and elements in various ways. Optionally, the output can be colorized.
Release Notes: This release adds a new -Ca option that enables all counters at once. The -Mc option can now be used multiple times, to allow range matching with excludes (to build holes in the range) on the total amount of set members. The new option '--' allows you to work with set names starting with a hyphen (-). An issue where all members were excluded from a listing if an invalid regex pattern was used with option -Xr was fixed. The programmable completion has been rewritten. Some bugs have been fixed and support for set names starting with a hyphen was added.
BoolStuff is a small C++ library that computes the Disjunctive Normal Form of a boolean expression binary tree. The library also has a C programming interface.
Release Notes: This version fixes a bug where some expressions containing large negations would fail an assert statement instead of returning the expected null expression. It also fixes a bug where some duplicate terms would not be detected because their factors needed to be sorted and simplified themselves to allow that detection. In addition, g++ 4.7.2 compilation errors were fixed (re: swap() function).
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/Mar/06). Partclone was updated to 0.2.59. Clonezilla is now able to image Minix. keyutils was added to the Clonezilla live packages lists.
Collabtive is Web-based project management software. It is an alternative to tools like Basecamp. Features include projects, todo lists, tasks, milestones, files, timetracking, internal messages, and an AJAX based instant messenger combined through an intuitive user interface.
Release Notes: This release marks the culmination of five years of development. With more than 60 improvements, it is the biggest and best release ever. It fixes all known bugs, overhauls the database access layer, improves reporting, adds a new permission (view), provides automatic update notification, uses MB-safe strings, and improves localization.
LaserCalc is a tool to calculate optical paths and resonators based on Gaussian beam matrix optics. Optical elements such as lenses or distances can be set up to an optical path. An input beam parameter (z & w value) as well as the wavelength can be set. The programm calculates the propagation of the beam along the path. For an optical resonator, the TEM00 Eigenmode of a given wavelength is automatically calculated. Furthermore, a stability parameter is derived.
Release Notes: Besides several bugfixes, the workfile handling and the import/export function have been improved. A new module, "Lens Designer", and new element, "ABCD matrix", have been added.
Dosage is an application that keeps a local "mirror" of specific Web comics, with a variety of options for naming schemes and updating options. It supports a recursive "catch-up" method, where it traverses a comic by essentially visiting previous comics and picking out the comics. An ever growing number of Web comics are available to satisfy your addiction.
Release Notes: Option parsing for -l, --singlelist, and --version has been fixed. The following comic strips have been added: AlphaLuna, AlphaLunaSpanish, BrentalFloss BrentalFlossFit, BrentalFlossGuest, DangerouslyChloe, MagickChicks, MenageA3, Namesake, ShadowGirls, and StickyDillyBuns.
rainbarf provides fancy resource usage charts to put into the tmux (and GNU screen) status line.
Release Notes: This release adds FreeBSD compatibility and can show the remaining time with no battery symbol.
libnetfilter_conntrack is a library that allows user-space programs to interface the kernel connection tracking table of the netfilter subsystem in the Linux kernel.
Release Notes: This release fixes a use after free when nfct_clone was used with certain attribute data types. Also, the ATTR_HELPER_INFO attribute is now treated as the variable-length type that it actually is.
conntrack-tools is a set of userspace tools for Linux that allow system administrators to interact with the Connection Tracking System, the module which provides stateful packet inspection for iptables. It includes the userspace daemon conntrackd and the commandline interface conntrack.
Release Notes: This release adds support to dump the "dying" and "unconfirmed" list via ctnetlink. A deadlock due to wrong nested signal blocking was resolved.
PrRescue is a rescue CD based on Gentoo amd64/i686 supporting nilfs2 and btrfs. Its goal is to always include the newest kernel and Gentoo packages.
Release Notes: The kernel has been updated to version 3.8.2. Gentoo packages have been updated to the latest stable versions.
The Userspace Logging Daemon (ulogd) is a flexible framework for extensive logging of packets on a firewall machine. ulogd uses the ULOG target of iptables/netfilter, the packet filtering framework of Linux 2.4 and 2.6. It supports binary plugins for adding packet interpreters and output-targets (e.g., for logging into databases, user-defined filetypes, etc.).
Release Notes: This release adds a GRAPHITE output plugin to ulogd, and src/dst and protocol filters to the nfct plugin.
Berkeley Yacc (byacc) is a high-quality yacc variant. In contrast to Bison, it is written to avoid dependencies upon a particular compiler. It was written around 1990 by Robert Corbett, the original author of Bison. This version has been modified to conform to ANSI C.
Release Notes: This release fixes the special case in which the "-i" option is given without "-d", adds other minor fixes, and improves the regression testcases.
Sphirewall is a user-centric analytical network firewall/router. Out-of-the box, it provides user authentication coupled with powerful analytics which provide you with complete control over your network and users. With Sphirewall, you can manage and understand what is happening on your network with features such as qos, bandwidth quotas, user authentication, and much more. Not built on iptables, it is able to do things which other Open Source firewalls can't. Its very flexible, and with its open JSON API, can easily be plugged into any existing environment.
Release Notes: This release adds a greatly-improved Web management interface and important new features.
Release Notes: The Datamatrix class was fixed.
The Oracle (formerly Sun) Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE or JSE) allows you to develop and deploy Java applications on desktops and servers as well embedded and real-time environments. The Java Development Kit (JDK) contains the essential compiler, tools, runtime libraries, and APIs for developers writing, deploying, and running applets and applications in the Java programming language. The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) contains the runtime libraries and tools for running applets and applications.
Release Notes: Serious security vulnerabilities in the browser plug-in were resolved. Due to the severity of these vulnerabilities and the reported exploitation of CVE-2013-1493 "in the wild", Oracle strongly recommends the application of this update as soon as possible.
Trackfs is a small program that tracks file system changes made by another program (or group of programs). It is similar to "installwatch", but works quite differently. While installwatch uses LD_PRELOAD to intercept library functions like open() and unlink(), trackfs runs the child program(s) with tracing enabled and tracks the system calls they make.
Release Notes: trackfs now also works on ARM systems (EABI only). On x86_64 systems, it can handle x32 binaries (provided that the kernel isn't too old).
NetXMS is a network monitoring and management system with a modular architecture. It can be used for monitoring an entire IT infrastructure, starting with SNMP-capable hardware (like switches and routers) and ending with applications on servers. The system has a three-tier architecture; the information is collected by monitoring agents (either its own agents or SNMP agents) and delivered to the monitoring server for processing and storing, where it can be accessed by using the management console. It features centralized configuration and centralized agent upgrades.
Release Notes: This release adds DCI (data collection items) instance discovery, an NxShell interactive shell for the commandline and automation, new features in the built-in NXSL scripting language, a driver for D-Link switches, improved LLDP support, new features and improvements in the management console and the Android agent, and other improvements and bugfixes.
Fimex is a the File Interpolation, Manipulation, and EXtraction library for gridded geospatial data. It converts between different, extensible data formats (currently netcdf, NcML, grib1/2, metgm, wdb, and felt). It enables you to change the projection and interpolation of scalar and vector grids. It makes it possible to subset the gridded data and to extract only parts of the files. For simple usage, Fimex also comes with the command line program fimex.
Release Notes: Fimex has now the ability to write back to existing netcdf-files. For convenience, fimex now uses by default some prebuilt configuration files to translate felt files.
Griffon IDE is an IDE for HTML, Bash, Perl, PHP, C, etc. It allows the generation of source code in a few clicks, avoiding traps. It features auto completion, an integrated terminal, project management for C, SFTP mounting (mounting a directory via an ssh key), automatic replacement of text, and a session management tab.
Release Notes: This release can mount FTP servers, adds Gtksourceview, fixes bugs, adds a bug report window and release tests, adds documentation (in French), provides history mounting of SSH and FTP, and adds early English translations of menus.
yetris is a Tetris clone which runs on the terminal. It has colors and high scores, along with many features found on modern Tetris implementations. It's made with C and runs on (most) Linux terminals.
Release Notes: This release adds high scores. They can be prompted and viewed from inside the game with F3. The game now works on Mac OS X, and some small bugs have been fixed.
XIST is an extensible HTML and XML generator. It is also an XML parser with a very simple and Python-esque tree API. Every XML element type corresponds to a Python class, and these Python classes provide a conversion method to transform the XML tree (e.g. into HTML). XIST can be considered 'object-oriented XSLT'. XIST also includes a cross-platform templating language, Oracle utilities, and various other tools.
Release Notes: UL4 templates can now be used as functions via the <?return?> tag. The built-in UL4 functions are now real objects that can be passed to templates as arguments. Lists in UL4 support the methods append, insert, and pop, and dictionaries support the method update. Line feeds and indentation in the literal text for UL4 templates can now be ignored via an additional constructor argument.
