Lzip is a lossless data compressor with a user interface similar to the one of gzip or bzip2. Lzip decompresses almost as fast as gzip and compresses more than bzip2, which makes it well suited for software distribution and data archiving. Lzip is a clean implementation of the LZMA algorithm. The Lzip file format is designed for long-term data archiving. It is clean, provides very safe four factor integrity checking, and is backed by the recovery capabilities of lziprecover.
Release Notes: The compression ratio has been slightly increased. Compression time has been reduced by 5%. Decompression time has been reduced by 12%.
Spacewalk is a Linux and Solaris systems management solution. It allows you to inventory your systems (hardware and software information), install and update software on your systems, collect and distribute your custom software packages into manageable groups, provision (Kickstart) your systems, manage and deploy configuration files to your systems, monitor your systems, provision virtual guests, and start/stop/configure virtual guests.
Release Notes: This release adds Fedora 18 support, ABRT and SCAP improvements, WebUI Enhancements, new reports for spacewalk-reports, and new API calls.
nf3d is a 3D interface to visualize Netfilter-related events. It fetches information from an ulogd-filled database and displays connections and logged packets in a GANTT diagram fashion.
Release Notes: nf3d can now filter by network instead of by simple address. The documentation has been improved, and some minor bugs have been fixed.
Pcompress is an archiver that can do compression/decompression and deduplication in parallel by splitting input data into chunks. It has a modular structure and includes support for multiple algorithms like LZMA, Bzip2, PPMD, LZ4, etc., with KECCAK/BLAKE2/SHA-256/512 chunk checksums. SSE optimizations for the bundled LZMA are included. It also implements chunk-level Content-Aware Deduplication and Delta Compression features based on a Polynomial Fingerprinting scheme. It has low metadata overhead and overlaps I/O and compression to achieve maximum parallelism. It has AES encryption capability and uses Scrypt from Tarsnap to generate per-session unique keys from passwords. It can work in pipe mode, reading from stdin and writing to stdout. It also provides some adaptive compression modes in which a suitable algorithm is chosen per chunk based on heuristics.
Release Notes: This update release adds several performance and security enhancements. AES code now includes AES-NI and VPAES optimizations. The fast XSalsa20 encryption algorithm has been added. Encryption key length can now be set at runtime (128/256 bits). Nonce, salt, etc. are now HMACed, and nonce generation randomized. Merkle Tree hashing via OpenMP is now used for all hashes when compressing an entire file in a single chunk (solid archive mode). Deduplication performance is improved by 95%. There is improved XML detection in adaptive modes. The file format has been updated, but backward compatibility retained.
Seafile is a file synchronization and collaboration platform. It comes with Dropbox-like file syncing, but is designed to be better suited to teamwork.

Release Notes: This release fixes initialization problems introduced in version 1.7.51, reinitializes settings before processing each file, and makes the "-reduce" option work properly.
i3 is a dynamic tiling window manager. Its key features are correct implementation of Xinerama (workspaces are assigned to virtual screens, and it does the right thing when attaching new monitors) and XrandR support (which is still unfinished). Both horizontal and vertical columns can be used in tiling. There is a special focus is on writing clean, readable, and well documented code. i3 uses xcb for asynchronous communication with X11, and has several measures to be very fast. i3 is primarily targeted at advanced users and developers.
Release Notes: An important under-the-hood change is that this release now uses the same parser infrastructure for the configuration file as for the commands. Apart from that, there have been several little fixes and additions which make i3 pay more attention to detail, particularly in the floating window area of the code. See the changes/bugfixes list for more information. Do note that these changes are 4.4-specific, and since the last version released here there have been many changes.
For users on Linux and Unix, KDE offers a full suite of user workspace applications which allow interaction with these operating systems in a modern, graphical user interface. This includes Plasma Desktop, KDE's innovative and powerful desktop interface. Other workspace applications are included to aid with system configuration, running programs, or interacting with hardware devices. While the fully integrated KDE Workspaces are only available on Linux and Unix, some of these features are available on other platforms. In addition to the workspace, KDE produces a number of key applications such as the Konqueror Web browser, Dolphin file manager, and Kontact, the comprehensive personal information management suite. The list of applications includes many others, including those for education, multimedia, office productivity, networking, games, and much more. Most applications are available on all platforms supported by the KDE Development. KDE also brings to the forefront many innovations for application developers. An entire infrastructure has been designed and implemented to help programmers create robust and comprehensive applications in the most efficient manner, eliminating the complexity and tediousness of creating highly functional applications.
Release Notes: Over 100 recorded bugfixes include improvements to the Personal Information Management suite Kontact, the Window Manager KWin, and others. KDE's Development Platform has received a number of updates which affect multiple applications.
