There is also new support for book covers using images. Plan, the project management application, has improvement in the scheduling of tasks. The formula shape now has new ways to enter formula, a matlab/octave mode and a LaTEX mode.
4MLinux is a miniature Linux distribution focusing on four capabilities: maintenance (by using it as a system rescue live CD), multimedia (for example, for playing video DVDs), miniserver (using the inetd daemon), and mystery (meaning console games).
Release Notes: This release is distributed in the form of a multiboot CD, which allows you to make network installations of the following systems: Debian 7.1, Fedora 19, Slackware 14.0, and Ubuntu 13.04. It is also possible to boot 4MLinux 7.0 to prepare the installation of these systems (by performing data backup, disk partitioning, and the like).
terminal_colors is a tool to display a terminal color chart for 8, 16, 88, and 256 color terminals. It provides all the functionality of the various similar scripts found around the Web with some additional bells and whistles. It automatically detects 8, 16, 88, and 256 color capabilities (via ncurses) and displays the appropriate color charts. It can display the colors as blocks or (2D) cubes, optionally with color values overlaid in int or hex values. It can show the full rgb text string as well. It can also show the display with a vertical (default) or horizontal orientation. It has the option of additional padding and supports -h --help as well. It also works as a utility for converting between 256 and 88 color values.
Release Notes: This release adds a bugfix in 88 color long RGB displays.
OGLplus is a header-only library that implements a thin object-oriented facade over the OpenGL (version 3 and higher) C-language API. It provides wrappers that automate the resource and object management and make the use of OpenGL in C++ safer and easier.
Release Notes: This is mostly a bugfix release, but it also brings a more robust GL version and extension detection, and other improvements to the build system.
phplist is a mailing list and newsletter manager that allows posting via a Web page. It works well when used for announcements, and can handle very large email address lists. Users can sign up to multiple lists, but will only receive a single copy of cross-posted messages. When signing up, users can identify their geographical location, and messages can be targetted to these. You can add place holders in your email that will be replaced with personal details (such as the person's name). Users can update their own information, and unlike many other mailing list systems, they can change their email address. HTML emails are supported.
Release Notes: This release adds a new adaptive interface. Finally, the development version is declared stable.
Freeside is an open-source billing and trouble ticketing package for ISPs, VoIP, hosting, service, and content providers, and other online businesses.

cipra is a simple, TAP-compatible Unit Testing Framework for C++. It's written in 100% standard C++11 and is only a couple of header files, making it easy to include in your C++11 project. TAP, the Test Anything Protocol, is a standard output format for software unit test frameworks which was originally designed for Perl, but can serve other languages. It has a rich number of tools ("harnesses") which parse TAP-formatted output and do useful things with it. TAP, however, is equally human-readable. The name cipra (pronounced /ˈʃi.pɾaː/ "SHEE-prah") comes from the lojban phrase "lo cipra", which means "the test". It is properly written with an initial minuscule "c", even when at the start of a sentence.
Release Notes: This release adds support for variadic templates in MSVC11 (using the same macros as the standard library implementation). CIPRA_USE_VARIADIC_TEMPLATES no longer has any effect because of this. It also adds a CMake Config.cmake file so CMake projects can find cipra if if it is installed. There is also a fix to new_ok() on move only types.
For users on Linux and Unix, KDE offers a full suite of user workspace applications which allow interaction with these operating systems in a modern, graphical user interface. This includes Plasma Desktop, KDE's innovative and powerful desktop interface. Other workspace applications are included to aid with system configuration, running programs, or interacting with hardware devices. While the fully integrated KDE Workspaces are only available on Linux and Unix, some of these features are available on other platforms. In addition to the workspace, KDE produces a number of key applications such as the Konqueror Web browser, Dolphin file manager, and Kontact, the comprehensive personal information management suite. The list of applications includes many others, including those for education, multimedia, office productivity, networking, games, and much more. Most applications are available on all platforms supported by the KDE Development. KDE also brings to the forefront many innovations for application developers. An entire infrastructure has been designed and implemented to help programmers create robust and comprehensive applications in the most efficient manner, eliminating the complexity and tediousness of creating highly functional applications.

SymmetricDS provides file and database synchronization with support for multi-master replication, filtered synchronization, and transformation across the network in a heterogeneous environment. It supports multiple subscribers with one-direction or bi-directional, asynchronous data replication. It uses Web and database technologies to replicate data as a scheduled or near-realtime operation. The software has been designed to scale for a large number of nodes, work across low-bandwidth connections, and withstand periods of network outage. It works with most operating systems, file systems, and databases, including Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MS SQL Server (including Azure), IBM DB2, H2, HSQLDB, Derby, Firebird, Interbase, Informix, Greenplum, SQLite (including Android), Sybase ASE, and Sybase ASA (SQL Anywhere) databases.
Release Notes: This release fixes 8 bugs and makes 2 improvements, including fixes for the upgrade process, REST service, and extraction. Improvements were made to the background initial loads and job scheduler.
FEED is a commandline feed reader supporting Atom and RSS feeds. It is comprised of two parts, a simple commandline frontend for a sqlite3 database which stores all the feeds and related entries which interest you, and a daemon which downloads, processes, and stores those feeds.
Release Notes: This release primarily fixes a lot of bugs found in release 1. Most of the changes that weren't bugfixes were to make the parsers more intelligent. This release does, however, fix some compilation and runtime problems encountered with FEED on Ubuntu 12.04. The build process will now also download and compile a copy of SQLite, because the version bundled with Ubuntu is horridly outdated.
Pride combines bash scripts, zenity, ant, ImageMagick, and the Android SDK tools to create a fast and simple POSIX alternative to Eclipse for Android development. It can be used from the desktop or command line or from any editor that makes exec calls, such as Emacs or Vim.
Release Notes: UpdateResDir was added to the Projects menu. This allows you to choose any number of files in one project's particular res dir, say res/drawable, and copy those files to the res directories of any number of selected projects.
PixSteward downloads pictures and metadata from your Flickr accounts and archives them in a relational database on your computer, allowing offline searches and image exporting. With PixSteward, you can safely back up multiple Flickr photostreams with metadata to your Mac, perform sophisticated searches (even where there's no Internet connection), rapidly browse your picture archive and export original-sized JPEGs, PNGs, and GIFs (groups and one-by-one), export sets of pictures along with their metadata for use in other apps, and edit your Flickr tags, titles, and descriptions simultaneously on Flickr and within PixSteward.
Release Notes: This release fixes a bug where double quotes in the description field could prevent syncing with Flickr. It adds database file size display to the Home screen. It disables the user's ability to change file extensions when exporting original images. It removes the horizontal scroll bar from the thumbnail search results window pane. It adds clear contents buttons to search fields.
QWebSockets is a pure Qt implementation of WebSockets, both client and server. It is implemented as a Qt source code module (.pri file) which can easily be embedded into existing Qt projects. It has no dependencies other than Qt. It features text and binary sockets, frame-based and message-based signals, proxy support, and strict Unicode checking.
Release Notes: This is the first stable release. Features missing: proxy support and WSS (Secure WebSockets).

It can restore Grub to the MBR update a Grub configuration, perform filesystem checks, fix a Windows MBR, and more. Features that can indirectly assist the rescue process include chat programs to let you reach human online help, a share log (automatic pastebin), and a share log that uses formatting appropriate for posting on a forum.
Release Notes: Two new options were added: Promote a Windows user to Administrator and Unlock a Windows user. grub-install and update-grub options were improved to handle Fedora installations better. Now the Update Grub option should work on any Grub2 system. XFE is the new default file manager, replacing qtfm. LVM and RAID support was added for the Restore Grub and Update Grub options.
I2P is an anonymizing network, offering a simple layer that identity-sensitive applications can use to securely communicate. All data is wrapped with several layers of encryption, and the network is both distributed and dynamic, with no trusted parties.
Release Notes: This unscheduled release disables the RouterInfo verification messages that were used in the attack published in the UCSB paper, which should make correlating a LeaseSet and a Router much more difficult. It also includes a limited number of other fixes listed below.
Clzip is a lossless data compressor with a user interface similar to the one of gzip or bzip2. Clzip decompresses almost as fast as gzip and compresses more than bzip2, which makes it well suited for software distribution and data archiving. Clzip uses the lzip file format; the files produced by clzip are fully compatible with lzip-1.4 or newer, and can be rescued with lziprecover. Clzip is, in fact, a C language implementation of lzip, intended for embedded devices or systems lacking a C++ compiler. The lzip file format is designed for long-term data archiving and provides very safe integrity checking.
Release Notes: Decompressing and testing no longer show the file version. Minor fixes have been made.
darkstat is an ntop-workalike network statistics gatherer. It runs as a background process on a cable or DSL router, uses libpcap to capture network traffic, and has a Web interface that serves up reports of statistics such as data transferred by host, port, and protocol. It also has a neat bandwidth usage graph.
Release Notes: This release builds on Mac OS X again, and fixes a crash bug in the Web interface.
Samba is a software suite that provides seamless file and print services to SMB/CIFS clients. It is freely available, unlike other SMB/CIFS implementations, and allows for interoperability between Linux/Unix servers and Windows-based clients.
