Strain included valence band calculation with a 3×3 k.p model. Many bugfixes and small corrections.
Rodent filemanager is a fast, small, and powerful file manager. Its emphasis is on ease of use for the advanced user, not the computer illiterate. Rodent filemanager (a.k.a. xffm >= 4.6.0) is the next step in the evolution of Xffm, now with a threaded design optimized for multicore processors.
Release Notes: rfm-simple-agent is now deprecated. Name sort has been fixed in rodent-ps and zombie cleanup. An informative message on no access for partitions. Removes the BUILD string, which was dropped when GIT was adopted for version control. Points POTFILES to moved find dialog files. libtubo has been moved to an independent git. Cleanups in the find dialog. Build from independent dbh; Dbh is now in its own GIT tree. Fixes to the spec file. Configure and cxx icons: the addition of c++src and c++hdr icon coloring and tags.
The X Binary Package System (in short XBPS) is a binary package system designed and implemented from scratch. Its goal is to be fast, easy to use, bug-free, featureful, and portable as much as possible. There is a well documented API provided by the XBPS Library that is the basis for its frontends, to handle binary packages and repositories.
Release Notes: Detection of broken reverse dependencies in package updates. Support for finding reverse dependencies in repository mode (even with virtual packages). Relaxed memory usage on 64-bit platforms. Performance improvements. External libfetch and proplib are no longer required. Some bugs and memory leaks were fixed.

Release Notes: t/options.t: skip tests in non-UTF-8 locales; fixes RT#83490.
Animmerger stitches 2D images together into either a static image or an animation, while attempting to preserve a global frame of reference (static background). That is, for a movie that follows an actor around (and the background scrolls to follow them), it creates a movie that has a fixed background, and the camera moves around in the scene. The most obvious application of animmerger is in automatic map stitching for 2D video games, but there are many general purposes for which the program can be used. Its color quantization and dithering algorithm set is particularly advanced.
Release Notes: This release improves support for more modern C++ compilers, improves performance, and adds new commandline options.
AdlMIDI is a command line program that plays MIDI files using software OPL3 emulation (FM synthesis). It has a console UI. It features a built-in selection of 50 patch sets, most of which are General MIDI compatible, but some of which are customized for playing original background music soundtracks of select PC games.
Release Notes: This release adds support for multiple concurrent synthesizer (a MIDI feature), improves the list of OPL soundfonts, adds support for hardware percussion channels, and more.
RTSPdump is a tool for downloading a multimedia stream from a Windows Media server (WMServer). It accepts rtsp:// and mms:// URLs. It supports both UDP and TCP traffic. The stream can be saved into a WMV file for archiving or timeshifting purposes or passed through stdout to another program for processing or immediate viewing. It has also limited support for other brands of servers that also provide RTSP streaming.
Release Notes: This release improves the support for Microsoft Windows Streaming Servers. It also adds support for seeking to a particular position in the stream.
THIS (This HTML Is Simple) is a content management system with blog capabilities. It features HTML templates, themes, and an extensible database design, with an emphasis on code/data separation, but it has many odd features and requires much manual maintenence.
Release Notes: This release includes an error handler and options to control error message output, and fixes two bugs in the templates.
tex-upmethodology provides a complete set of LaTeX styles that permit you to write documents according to a UP-based methodology. Its major features are document history, task management, design and specification documentation, and helping tools. tex-upmethodology is officially supported by CTAN.
Release Notes: This release adds the macro \ifdocumentauthor. It permits the user to test whether a string is the name of one of the authors of the documents. The macro \underline has been redefined to move the line closer to the text baseline.
eyeD3 is a Python program and module that provides the ability to read and write ID3 tags (v1.x and v2.3/v2.4). It also decodes MP3 headers (bit rate, sample frequency, play time, etc.).
Release Notes: This release adds Python 2.6 support (2.7 is the default), ID3 chapters/TOC support, disc number/total commandline options, optional preservation of file modification time during saves, --no-color, more stats in the statistics plugin, and fixes for PRIV frames, tag templates, iD3 conversions, play times, etc.
PASAP runs in the background, checking whether a stream exists, and, if it does, plays it. It was originally written to play back audio provided by MPD in remotely networked locations, but it also allows consumer-grade HD decoders (WDTV) to automatically play back audio/video streams from an HTTP address.
Release Notes: This is the initial release for the WDLXTV firmware installed on WDTV Live HD devices.
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.
Sanewall is a firewall builder for Linux that uses an elegant language abstracted to just the right level. This makes it powerful and easy to use, audit, and understand. It allows you to create very readable configurations even for complex stateful firewalls. Sanewall can be used for almost any purpose, including control of any number of internal/external/virtual interfaces, control of any combination of routed traffic, setting up DMZ routers and servers, all kinds of NAT, providing strong protection (flooding, spoofing, etc.), transparent caches, source MAC verification, blacklists, and whitelists. Newer versions abstract the differences between IPv4 and IPv6, allowing you to define a common set of rules for both, while permitting specific rules for each as you need. Sanewall is a fork of FireHOL and can make use of existing FireHOL configurations.
Release Notes: "sanewall save" now creates two files, which is what most init systems expect. "sanewall status" now identifies which blocks are IPv6 or IPv4. "sanewall condrestart" now follows convention by only restarting if already running. Various programs and files are now detected at configure-time rather than run-time.
Crayonizer "crayonizes" the output of other programs. It uses pattern matches to color in and otherwise transmogrify selected text. It's written in straight C with few dependencies.
Release Notes: This release works with ssh, adds many new verbs/crayonizations, and supports setting the xterm title, xterm foreground, and background colors, playing sounds, and passing communications to another program.
CBoard is an NCurses PGN browser, editor, and front end to chess engines that use the XBoard protocol. It supports human/human (local), human/engine, and engine/engine play, the FEN tag, annotations with RAV (limited), NAG, and comments, and more.

eBag is software project focused on company (factory) administration via PHP+MySQL solutions, on the local network, using browsers as terminals to access the company database. The server solution provides platform independence and collaborative work. PHP offers flexibility and the ability to change (or upgrade) the source code to personal needs, and MySQL innoDB provides transactional safe, recoverable tables. Using language files provides easy and quick translation to any language, and MVC with a CSS customizable user interface.
Release Notes: This release fixes critical bugs for Chrome, Opera, and Safari users.
MyNotex is software to take and to manage textual notes, even large numbers of them. Notes are gathered under different subjects and consist of a title, a date, a list of tags (keywords), and a free-length text which can be formatted (change font color, name, size, italic, bold, paragraph alignment, etc.); the software can manage bullets and numbered lists with automatic indentation. A single file produced by MyNotex contains multiple subjects and notes. Multiple attachments (files of any kind) can be associted with each note. You can search for notes by subject, by content, by tag (keyword), or by date. OpenOffice Writer files can be imported directly. Data can be exported as HTML that can be edited with a word processor like OpenOffice Writer. Finally, it is possible to synchronize two different MyNotex files.
Release Notes: This release improves list management and styles, can move a paragraph up and down, and fixes many bugs. The interface of the software is now available in English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese, and Russian. The manual is available in English, Italian, French, German, and Russian.
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: This release fixes a minor regression introduced by the --as-needed loader option.
FeResPost is a library that allows the rapid development of small programs for the post-processing of Nastran or Samcef finite element results.
