Task Coach is a simple todo manager to manage personal tasks and todo lists. It grew out of a frustration that well-known task managers, such as those provided with Outlook or Lotus Notes, do not provide facilities for composite tasks. Often, tasks and other things to do consist of several activities. Task Coach is designed to deal with composite tasks.
Release Notes: This is a mixed bugfix and feature release.
DUNE, the Distributed and Unified Numerics Environment, is a modular toolbox for solving partial differential equations (PDEs) with grid-based methods. DUNE is first of all a set of abstract interfaces which embody concepts from scientific computing. Modern C++ programming techniques enable very different implementations of the same concept using a common interface at a very low overhead. Thus, DUNE ensures efficiency in scientific computations and supports high-performance computing applications.
Release Notes: Dune 2.2.1 is a bugfix release based on the previous 2.2 release. It makes every effort to backport all bugfixes from the development branch. These include various fixes to better support newer compilers like g++-4.7 and clang and newer versions of the external software used. Dune 2.2.1 is supposed to be fully backward-compatible to the 2.2 release.
4MLinux is a miniature Linux distribution focusing on four capabilities: maintenance (by using it as a system rescue live CD), multimedia (for example, for playing video DVDs), miniserver (using the inetd daemon), and mystery (meaning console games).
Release Notes: This is an updated version of 4MLinux 5.0 Game Edition, using 4MLinux 5.1 as the core system. The 4MLinux collection includes, among other things, the following items: classic "shoot'em up" games (Abuse, Doom, Heretic, Hexen, and Quake), Liero (a realtime "Worms-like" game), Lincity (a construction and management simulation game), Michael Speck's LGames (using SDL libraries), and DOSBox 0.74 with some Freeware DOS games. ec64 (a Commodore C64 emulator) is also available.
Burp is a program that backs up and restores data. It uses librsync in order to save on the amount of space that is used by each backup. It also uses VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to make snapshots when backing up Windows computers.
Release Notes: This release adds the ability to back up raw devices referenced by a symlink, Valgrind cleanup, and a "-d" option to bedup (to delete duplicates instead of hardlinking, not for use on burp storage directories).
Zero Install is a decentralized cross-distribution software installation system. It allows software developers to publish programs directly from their own Web sites, while supporting features familiar from centralized distribution repositories such as shared libraries, automatic updates, and digital signatures. It is intended to complement, rather than replace, the operating system's package management. 0install packages never interfere with those provided by the distribution.
Release Notes: This release enhances the XML package metadata syntax, allowing more precise specification of dependencies. Support for using distribution-provided packages as dependencies has been extended and now covers Arch Linux, Cygwin, Darwin, Debian, Fink, FreeBSD Ports, Gentoo, MacPorts, Mint, openSUSE, Red Hat, Slackware, and Windows. The 0install software now supports apps, an easier way to manage 0install applications, improved diagnostics when no compatible versions can be selected, improved usability, and better support for use on headless servers.
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.
OpenConnect server (ocserv) is an SSL VPN GNU/Linux server. Its purpose is to be a secure, small, fast, and configurable VPN server which depends on standard protocols like TLS 1.2 and Datagram TLS. It implements the AnyConnect SSL VPN protocol and is compatible with the OpenConnect VPN client (compatibility with other Anyconnect SSL VPN clients is experimental).
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 designed to keep a local copy of specific Web comics and other picture-based content such as Picture of the Day sites. With the dosage command line, script you can get the latest strip of a Web comic, catch up to the last strip downloaded, or download a strip for a particular date/index (if the comic's site layout makes this possible).
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. It is written to avoid dependencies upon a particular compiler. It was written around 1990 by Robert Corbett, who previously wrote 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.
