GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.
Release Notes: --xapply now recycles arguments if an input source has more arguments than others. The sleep time between jobs is now both increased and decreased exponentially. 10 seconds installation checks the signature using GnuPG if GnuPG is installed.
Pride combines bash scripts, zenity, ant, ImageMagick, and the Android tools to create a fast and simple POSIX alternative for Android development. It provides all the basic commands (clean, build, release, etc.) of other Android IDEs. But it is primarily a robust and simple injection framework. Injections from methods to clusters of activities are easily created from existing code and can then be injected into any project. Pride can also be used to batch build, load, or release multiple projects and can update class and resource files among projects that use the same objects or resources.

Orbitals represented as solid isosurfaces look really fantastic, as the new screenshots show. Users can always choose which orbital octants to represent, which is critical for seeing the orbitals inside. A few minor bugs in the GTK, Expat orbital code were fixed.
Libtubo Interprocess Communication is a small and simple library to run processes in the background and communicate via the stdout, stderr, and stdin file descriptors. The functionality of libtubo is similar to the glib function g_spawn_async_with_pipes(), except that all pipe setup and monitoring is taken care of. The calling function only has to provide the functions with which to process the input/output of the remote process. The library first appeared in the year 2000 in the xfce3 desktop as part of the xfsamba application, and is now available for use for other developers.
Release Notes: A Tubo_child() function was added for obtaining the PID of the secondary process. This will allow for the full rodent-ps popup menu over the little run button. The library now aborts when malloc returns null (computer out of memory) just to be safe. CPU usage was reduced and response speed was increased by eliminating NO_HANG polling for the little run button control. The GLib dependency was removed, leaving only Pthreads and shm.

HGL is a compiler/interpreter suite for developing images. It features its own simple but powerful language, Lua integration, output in various formats as well as runtime input handled by plugins, and easy integration into various environments like Web servers or graphical applications. The input is taken from a source file, which has to be compiled for quick and frequent access by the interpreter. An interpreter then runs the compiled files, takes input from custom plugins (if neccessary), and outputs its result via custom plugins.
Release Notes: X-axis centric gradient fill for polygons is now supported. Decompiling with the -d switch in the interpreter was implemented. bash completion was provided for the hgl interpreter. Text rendering now uses HGL virtual units instead of absolute pixels. Alpha (blending) support was improved. Render callback calculation was corrected. The progress.sh example script was improved.
