tvpvrd is a PVR daemon for Linux that offers the ability to schedule and manage TV recordings using one or multiple installed analogue TV capture cards, e.g. Hauppauge. The daemon is interfaced either through its full command language via a provided command line shell or through a basic (built-in) Web interface provided by the built in micro Web server. The goal is to provide an advanced recording and transcoding (using ffmpeg) server without the need to configure databases or a complex GUI. The server is completely self-contained and uses an XML DB in plain text format to store future recordings.

The xterm program is the standard terminal emulator for the X Window System. It provides DEC VT102/VT220 and Tektronix 4014 compatible terminals for programs that can't use the window system directly. If the underlying operating system supports terminal resizing capabilities (for example, the SIGWINCH signal in systems derived from 4.3bsd), xterm will use the facilities to notify programs running in the window whenever it is resized.
Release Notes: Improves configurability of openpty versus posix_openpt functions. Adds a new feature PasteControls to enable control characters (other than formatting) to be pasted. Several minor bugfixes.
queXML is a simple XML schema for designing questionnaires. Included are stylesheets to administer a questionnaire in PDF (paper), CASES, and LimeSurvey. queXML is compatible with the DDI standard for data description. Instruments can also be designed in LimeSurvey and exported.
Release Notes: Adjusting the style and font sizes for the queXMLPDF class has been enabled without having to edit the class source. Also added is the code from the queXML Tools site (index.php) so you can install it locally (requires PHP and TCPDF).
queXC is a Web-based data cleaning and coding/classification system that takes a data file (such as data collected from a questionnaire) and cleans the text input fields by spacing them and spell checking them. It allows operators to code text fields to existing coding schemes, or to create a coding scheme on the fly. Multiple operators can code and clean simultaneously, with the ability to assign operators to do particular codes. The queXC system includes some coding schemes created from ABS (Australian Bureau of Statistics) data. It can be used as an open source replacement for Nvivo in some situations.
Release Notes: This is mainly a bugfix release. Viewing on Internet Explorer works well now, php-gettext has been upgraded for translations, and text coding to multiple groups with multiple operators functions correctly. Translations have also been updated.

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 release introduces the capability to do Global Deduplication. This performs deduplication across the entire dataset using an in-memory index as opposed to deduplication only within segments. Two kinds of indexes are used based on the dataset size. A full chunk hash index is used for small datasets. A special segmented similarity based index is used when the dataset is very large. The latter index size is just 0.002% of the dataset size with >90% efficiency of a full chunk index based exact dedupe using 4KB chunks. Streaming support allows optimization of network transfer of large data.
