dd_rescue copies data from one file or block device to another. It is intended for error recovery, so by default, it doesn't abort on errors and doesn't truncate the output file. It uses large block sizes to quicken the copying, but falls back to small blocks upon encountering errors. It produces reports that allow you to keep track of bad blocks. dd_rescue features a number of optimizations, such as sparse block detection, preallocation, and Linux zerocopy (splice). It supports data protection by (multi-pass) overwriting of files or partitions with good and fast random numbers.
Release Notes: This release brings some further optimization of the SSE2 sparse block detection (adding 40% performance). There's also code for AVX2, but it's disabled, as it couldn't be tested. There's a test case for the 1.35/1.36 bug now that can be run by make check. ETA and curr.rate have been improved a bit (floating averages), and the --force/-f switch gained the capability to override a non-zero output position for non-seekable ouput files.
fab is a software build utility for Linux/Unix systems featuring integrated dependency discovery. Its goal is to provide reliable builds, optimally organized for parallel and incremental execution, with a minimal set of dependencies provided by the programmer.
Release Notes: Enables generation of build scripts that do not traverse nofile boundaries (the +n selector). The liblistwise operator has a reworked .so model to allow one-to-many. Node selectors has a new interface for specifying targets for building/discovery that allows full use of liblistwise/list syntax and the fg operator. The -K option has been added to enable buildscripts with variables settable at runtime. Error reporting has been changed to only display the immediate site of the error by default instead of unwinding the entire stack. The -f option should now work from any working directory.
The key-tools software is used to automatically analyze and tag the key of music files. Its primary use is to help DJs catalog a music library.
Release Notes: Initial release.
The lzlib compression library provides in-memory LZMA compression and decompression functions, including integrity checking of the decompressed data. The compressed data format used by the library is the lzip format. The lzip file format is designed for long-term data archiving. It is clean, provides very safe 4-factor integrity checking, and is backed by the recovery capabilities of lziprecover.
Release Notes: Decompression support for deprecated version 0 files has been removed. A bug has been fixed that would make an instance of "struct LZ_Encoder" unresponsive if "LZ_compress_sync_flush" were called at the wrong moment. Minor fixes have been made.
linuxptp is an implementation of the Precision Time Protocol (PTP) according to IEEE standard 1588 for Linux. The dual design goals are to provide a robust implementation of the standard and to use the most relevant and modern Application Programming Interfaces (API) offered by the Linux kernel. Supporting legacy APIs and other platforms is not a goal.
Release Notes: This release improves PTP management support, adds new configuration options, and includes other improvements and bugfixes.
Dante is a free implementation of the proxy protocols SOCKS version 4 and SOCKS version 5 (RFC 1928). It can be used as a firewall between networks, controlling outgoing traffic. The package consists of two parts: a socks server and a proxy client that supports socks, HTTP proxies, and UPnP. RFC 1961 (GSSAPI) is supported in both the client and the server. Commercial support is available.
Release Notes: This version adds many new features, performance improvements, and bugfixes. New features include support for IPv6 in the server, connection and data monitoring, and session limits.
The virtualbox-COM Ruby gem is a library that provides a low level Ruby binding to the VirtualBox API, allowing anyone to control VirtualBox from Ruby code. It can create, destroy, start, stop, suspend, and resume virtual machines, and also list virtual machines, list hard drives, network devices, etc.
Release Notes: This release enhances VRDEServer to simplify handling of the VNC extension pack.
DataNucleus AccessPlatform is a standards-compliant Java persistence product. It is fully compliant with the JDO1, JDO2, JDO2.1, JDO2.2, JDO3, JPA1, JPA2 and JPA2.1 Java standards, and provides a REST API. It complies with the OGC Simple Feature Spec for persistence of geospatial Java types. It allows access to all popular RDBMS available today, together with the MongoDB, LDAP, NeoDatis, JSON, Excel/ODF spreadsheets, XML, BigTable, HBase, and Neo4j databases.
Release Notes: Support for RDBMS load scripts at startup was added. Support for query ordering of nulls was added. Improvements to PostGIS spatial support were made. Improvements to query static methods usage were made. Merging of unmapped column metadata from ORM files was improved. A fix to MongoDB use of versions was made. Other minor fixes were made.
WeatherLog is an application for keeping track of the weather and getting information about past trends.
Release Notes: This release improves the export features, adds an options window, and adds the ability to select whether metric or imperial units can be used, in addition to smaller improvements and bugfixes.
The Open Service Availability Framework (OpenSAF) is designed to work in a loosely coupled computer system with fast interconnections between the nodes. An application using OpenSAF could provide “five nines” (99.999 %) availability without re-inventing availability techniques. It provides mechanisms to replicate data between nodes, so that in case of failure the services can be started on a different node with the same state. It monitors itself for hardware and software failures, can keep several service instances running (with different availability models), and can automatically restart and migrate services to satisfy the availability requirements. It is based on the standard defined at saforum.org. It includes an availability management framework, a message service, a lock service, an event service, a checkpoint service, and much more.
Release Notes: This is a minor bugfix release containing around 50 fixes since version 4.2.3.
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: This is probably the most thoroughly-tested version of Parted Magic that's been done in a while. More attention has been given to fixing old problems than to adding new features (though there are quite a few new ones). The program to download virus definitions has been overhauled to show more information after the download is complete, such as the size of the files and the version. You can also decide to download the main, the daily, or both. The program which displays which programs are installed has been split into groups instead of a 1,000-package list.
Release Notes: This version contains a bugfix related to digital signatures.
