JasperStarter is a commandline launcher and batch compiler for JasperReports. It can run any JasperReport that needs a JDBC, CSV, or empty data source, use any database for which a JDBC driver is available, execute reports that need runtime parameters, print directly to the system default or a given printer, optionally show a printer dialog to choose a printer, optionally show a print preview, export to file in the PDF, RTF, .docx, .odt, and HTML formats, export multiple formats in one commanding call, print and export in one commanding call, and integrate in non-Java applications (for example PHP, Python) A binary executable is available for Windows. JapserStarter is able to prompt for report parameters. Any parameter whose class has a string constructor is accepted.

Download Website 03 May 02:15 Babel Router 1.3.6


Babel is a distance-vector routing protocol for IPv6 and IPv4. It is designed to be robust and work efficiently on both wired networks and wireless mesh networks.

Release Notes: This version works around an ABI change in recent Linux kernels with respect to IPv6 routes.

vcprompt prints a short string, to be included in your shell prompt, with barebones information about the current working directory for various version control systems. It is designed to be small and lightweight rather than comprehensive. It has varying degrees of recognition for Mercurial, Git, Subversion, CVS, and Fossil working copies.

Release Notes: This release adds support for reporting modified/unknown files in Mercurial working dirs (%m and %u format specifiers).

Download Website 03 May 02:12 animbar 1.2


animbar lets you easily create your own animation on paper and transparancy. From a set of input images, two output images are computed that are printed, one on paper and one on transparency. By moving the transparency over the paper, a fascinating animation effect is created. This animation technique has been known for hundreds of years under names such as picket fence animation, barrier grid animation, and others.

Release Notes: This release introduces the ability to export the generated picket fence or barrier grid animation to an animated SVG file. Animated SVGs may be displayed in a variety of viewers, including modern browsers such as Firefox and Chrome.

Download Website 03 May 02:11 GNU ddrescue 1.17-rc3


GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disk, CD-ROM, etc.) to another, trying to rescue the good parts first in case of read errors. GNU ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue logfiles, shows logfile contents, converts logfiles to/from other formats, compares logfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a logfile if the rescue is done.


Release Notes: This release adds the new option "-w, --ignore-write-errors", which makes fill mode ignore write errors. This is useful to avoid ddrescue exiting because of new errors developing while wiping the good sectors of a failing drive.

No download Website 03 May 02:09 PIT 0.30


PIT is a fast bytecode based mutation testing system for Java that makes it possible to test the effectiveness of your unit tests. You can think of mutation testing as either as an automated test of your tests or as a much more in-depth form of code coverage. Unlike traditional line and branch coverage tools, PIT does not just confirm that your tests execute your code, it confirms that your tests are actually able to detect faults in it.

Release Notes: This release integrates pit with version control, allowing selective mutation based on the status of source files within the configured version control system. Also included is support for parameterised spock tests, junit param tests, and numerous other small fixes and improvements.

Download Website 03 May 01:36 Parted Magic 2013_05_01


The Parted Magic OS employs core programs from GParted and Parted to handle partitioning tasks with ease, while featuring other useful programs including Partition Image, TestDisk, fdisk, sfdisk, dd, and ddrescue and an excellent set of documentation to benefit the user. An extensive collection of fileystem tools are also included, and the following filesystems are supported: ext2, ext3, ext4, FAT16, FAT32, HFS, HFS+, JFS, Linux-swap, NTFS, ReiserRS, reiser4, and XFS. It loads completely to system memory and requires at least 256MB of RAM to operate.

Release Notes: EFI booting support from CDROM has been greatly improved. "Erase Disk" has a new menu with translations. f2fs-tools has been added, and you can create a f2fs with GParted. A new “forcevesa” kernel commandline option has been added. (This works with cards like the MGA G200* series.) The Parted Magic Wipe Free Space GUI has been translated. There's a simple GTK+ GUI for chntpw which should make changing Windows passwords much easier. The Xorg Server has been upgraded to 1.14.1 with all the latest Xorg drivers. SpaceFM now manages the desktop. You can now drag and drop icons to the desktop or /root/Desktop folders. The right-click menu allows the creation of files and folders, which means you can keep your files on the desktop again. Jeex and Hexedit have been added to the SpaceFM right-click “Open” menu, which makes it much easier to edit files directly. “Open terminal here” and “Show hidden files” have also been added to the right-click menu. There's a new program to help prepare USB drives for booting Parted Magic, called “USB Boot Flash”, with code based on “bootflash” from Puppy Linux. Firefox has been upgraded to version 20.0.1. There's a new program called “Parted Magic Mount”, and the fstab daemon has been completely redesigned to work much faster and be much more accurate than it has been. Because of the new design, it polls every 5 seconds instead of 10. If a change is detected, the device probe and fstab changes are made in about one second on most machines. GParted has been upgraded to version 0.16.1. This version corrects the segfaults found in the 0.15.0 and 0.16.0 releases. Clonezilla has been upgraded to version 3.3.10 and DRBL to version 2.3.10. There have also been a number of added programs: chkrootkit-0.49, gdmap-0.8.1, sg3_utils-1.35, jeex-12.0, xterm-291, rdesktop-1.7.1, putty-0.62, and f2fs-tools-1.1.0. The Linux kernel has been upgraded to version 3.8.10 with reiser4 support. The following programs have been removed: udisks, mount-gtk, Rox-filer, feh, and imlib.
