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. A hook script that works with git, hg, and svn is included in the distribution.
Release Notes: This release adds an -l option (irker can now be used as a channel monitor) and -n and -p options (the nick can be forced and authenticated).
Voidoria is Fractal Flame rendering and animation software.
Release Notes: This is a developer preview release.
Siren Renamer is a tool that renames, moves, and copies files using an expression. A lot of information associated with a file can be used, including name, extension, dates, and selection number. Other information is extracted from files according to their type: audio, video, image (standard and raw), EXIF, IPTC, Office document, PDF, ePub, HTML, and many others. Many different operations can be performed on character strings, complete directory trees can be processed, and images can be viewed. For example, to change a file name to uppercase with the mp3 extension, the expression can be '%ub.mp3'.
Release Notes: This release adds bug corrections and a few modifications.
The OVAL Interpreter is a freely available reference implementation that demonstrates the evaluation of OVAL definitions. Based on a set of definitions, the interpreter collects system information, evaluates it, and generates a detailed OVAL results file.
Release Notes: This minor update adds support for the use of the ipv6_address datatype within tests and evaluation, improves how the linux-def:rpminfo_test’s signature_keyid entity is collected, and modifies the collection format of the win-def:file_test’s language entity so that it may be specified by the OS. A number of bugs have been fixed, as well.
httping is a "ping"-like tool for HTTP requests. Give it a URL and it will show how long it takes to connect, send a request, and retrieve the reply (only the headers). It can be used for monitoring or statistical purposes (measuring latency).
Release Notes: This is mostly a bugfix release (segfaults, FreeBSD build fixes).
samhain is a daemon that can check file integrity, search the file tree for SUID files, and detect kernel module rootkits (Linux only). It can be used either standalone or as a client/server system for centralized monitoring, with strong (192-bit AES) encryption for client/server connections and the option to store databases and configuration files on the server. For tamper resistance, it supports signed database/configuration files and signed reports/audit logs. It has been tested on Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, and Unixware.
Release Notes: Log rotation can be handled more gracefully now. An option to ignore modifications of transient files during their lifetime has been added, and it is possible now to build a Debian client package with a preset password. A problem with large groups has been fixed, as well as reconnecting to a temporarily unavailable Oracle database.
juntaDados is a GNU/Linux distribution that has a selection of packages targeted at audio, video, and graphics producers. juntaDados works to simplify the creation of Linux-based multimedia workstations for social projects in Brazil like Pontos de Cultura.
Release Notes: This release adds Kdenlive 0.9.6, Blender 2.66a, Ardour 3.0, LibreOffice 4.0.2, Firefox 20, OGMRip 1.0, AviDemux 2.5.6, Cinepaint 1.3, Linux Kernel 3.8.7-ck1-bfq (with BFS and BFQ schedulers), and much more.
Wayland is a protocol for a compositor to talk to its clients, as well as a C library implementation of that protocol. The compositor can be a standalone display server running on Linux kernel modesetting and evdev input devices, an X application, or a wayland client itself. The clients can be traditional applications, X servers (rootless or fullscreen), or other display servers.
Release Notes: This release includes new backends for the Raspberry Pi system and the Linux fbdev device, a number of performance improvements, a touchscreen calibration feature, a new software development kit, and more.
Antivirus Live CD is a 4MLinux fork including the ClamAV scanner. It's designed for system admins who need a lightweight live CD with an antivirus scanner. Both Ethernet (including Wi-Fi) and dial-up (including fast USB modems) Internet connections are supported, to enable automatic updates of the virus signature database. All partitions are mounted automatically during boot so they can be scanned by ClamAV (the supported filesystems are: btrfs, ext2, ext3, ext4, FAT, HFS, HFS+, jfs, Minix, NTFS, ReiserFS, and XFS). Antivirus Live CD image is fully compatible with UNetbootin, which can be used to create an easy-to-use Antivirus Live USB.
Release Notes: This release is a response to feature requests submitted by Antivirus Live CD users, who can now decide what should be done with infected files (permanent deletion, moving to quarantine, and the like). Support for USB modems has also been improved.
syslog-ng is a syslogd replacement for a wide variety of UNIX systems that supports IPv6 and is capable of transferring log messages reliably using TCP and SSL and filtering the content of messages using regular expressions. Both RFC3164 and RFC5424 style messages are handled, but more esoteric formats like BSD process accounting logs are supported too. Apart from regular text files, it supports storing messages into SQL and MongoDB databases, and forward messages to local processes via pipes or UNIX domain sockets. This makes syslog-ng ideal as an integration platform. syslog-ng supports extracting structured information from the traditionally text based syslog via csv-parser(), db-parser(), and patterndb. Tag based classification, rewriting messages, and outputting messages in JSON is also possible. This makes syslog-ng ideal for preprocessing events for further analysis, be that home-grown scripts or SIEM systems. syslog-ng scales well on today's multi processor and multi-core systems: reaching 1,000,000 messages per second is a reality for the simplest use cases.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix only maintenance release of the 3.3 series, correcting a crash which happened when a rewrite rule using set() or subst() was used in multiple log paths.
Junkie is a real-time packet sniffer and analyzer. It is modular enough to accomplish many different tasks. It can be a helpful companion to the modern network administrator and analyst. Compared to previously available tools, junkie lies in between tcpdump and wireshark. Unlike tcpdump, its purpose is to parse protocols of any depth; unlike wireshark, though, it is designed to analyze traffic in real-time and so cannot parse traffic as exhaustively as wireshark does. In addition, its design encompasses extendability and speed. It has a plug-in system and high-level extension language that eases the development and combination of new functionalities; threaded packet capture and analysis for handling of high bandwidth networks; and a modular architecture to ease the addition of any protocol layer. It is based on libpcap for portability, and well-tested on professional settings.
Release Notes: This release adds many fixes and ameliorations related to parsing TCP despite missing/unordered segments.
DOMjudge is an automated judgement system to run programming contests. It provides a mechanism to submit problem solutions and interfaces for teams, the jury, and the general public. It is lightweight, and depends on standard software to do its task. It has a Web interface for portability and simplicity. It is scalable, so distributed judging is easy. There is a modular system for plugging in languages and compilers. It features rejudging, clarifications, and detailed submission/judging info.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release rolling up a number of small improvements. The largest impact bugfix concerns an SQL query which could lead to intermittent MySQL locking failures when running with many concurrent users.
Notepas is a multi-platform text editor written in Lazarus which can be compiled for multiple platforms and widget sets using the advanced native Free Pascal Compiler. Aimed at developers, it has some functions usually not found in other text editors and introduces some new exclusive features.
Release Notes: This is still a preview release, but includes a lot of bugfixes over the previous build.
Orthanc is a lightweight, RESTful DICOM server for health care and medical research.
Release Notes: This release supports the preview of color DICOM images, and fixes a major problem with the C-Store SCU in Release builds.
Rsyslog is an enhanced multi-threaded syslogd. Among others, it offers support for on-demand disk buffering, reliable syslog over TCP, SSL, TLS, and RELP, writing to databases (MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, and many more), email alerting, fully configurable output formats (including high-precision timestamps), the ability to filter on any part of the syslog message, on-the-wire message compression, and the ability to convert text files to syslog. It is a drop-in replacement for stock syslogd and able to work with the same configuration file syntax.
Release Notes: This is a bugfixing release which also include some improvements, like the debugging support in forked mode. The rsyslog debug log file now continues to be written across the fork.
