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.
Release Notes: More than 70 recorded bugfixes include improvements to the Window Manager KWin, the file manager Dolphin, and others. Users can expect Plasma Desktop to start up faster, Dolphin to scroll smoother, and various applications and tools to use less memory. Improvements include the return of drag-and-drop from taskbar to pager, highlighting and color fixes in Kate, and many little bugfixes in the Kmahjongg game. There are many stability fixes and the usual additions of translations.
Cyberprobe is a distributed architecture for real-time monitoring of networks against attack. The software consists of two components: cyberprobe, which collects data packets and forwards it over a network in standard streaming protocols; and cybermon, which receives the streamed packets, decodes the protocols, and interprets the information. Cyberprobe can optionally be configured to receive alerts from Snort. In this configuration, when an alert is received, the IP source address associated with the alert is dynamically targeted for a period of time. Collecting data and forwarding over the network to a central collection point allows for a much more "industrialized" approach to intrusion detection. The monitor, cybermon, is highly configurable using LUA, allowing you to do a great many things with captured data: summarize, hexdump, store, and respond with packet injections.
Release Notes: This release brings SMTP and FTP protocol processing plus a simple visualization engine that allows you to get a single Web page view of the activity on your network. Check out the Quickstart page to see what you can do.

It fixes a number of security issues (signed and unsigned comparisons) in the Xpm reading code (CAN-2005-0605). It fixes the use of accels with more than one modifier. It fixes the layout of applications with widgets that have the AttachBottom set to AttachSelf, which fixes using z88 with lesstif. It fixes VendorSP.h inclusion from cpp code. Xt warnings on unnecessary ungrab (xpdf) have been silenced. It fixes a crash in xim chained lists.

cgipaf is a combination of three CGI programs. passwd.cgi allow users to update their password, viewmailcfg.cgi allows users to view their current mail configuration, and mailcfg.cgi updates the mail configuration with a .procmailrc in the user's home directory. All programs use PAM for user authentication. It is possible to run a script to update Samba passwords or NIS configuration when a password is changed. Users with too many invalid logins can be locked. A range of UIDs that are allowed to use cgipaf can be set in the configuration file. A changepass utility - a chpasswd clone - is provided for platforms that doesn't have such a command, like Solaris.
Release Notes: PAM is enabled on FreeBSD 7.3 or above and on NetBSD 6.0 or above. xmalloc is updated to support systems with non GNU compatible malloc.
Caché Monitor is an SQL development tool for InterSystems database Caché. It features an advanced SQL query editor with SQL syntax highlighting, SQL code completion with context sensitive information about database objects (also known as Intellisense), an SQL history buffer for executed SQL commands, SQL code formatting, parallel queries, graphical SQL execution plan with index and selectivity information, SQL abbreviations, and much more. Database diagrams graphically show the structure of the database.

By double clicking on any table cell, the content from this cell are displayed in Data Inspector with the option to view the content as text, HTML, XML, binary or image. The new “Database Viewer” shows information about the databases on the selected server. This Viewer is a new node type in Server Navigator. Listed is information about the database name, the location of the CACHE.DAT file, and the size of the database in megabytes. Classes can be locally exported to a file.
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.
Release Notes: The BetaPhoneCheck class was added to the injected classes. This allows a small to medium beta group to test a paid app using smartphones and still protect that app from free propagation. The class will not work with all phone carriers and is intended for independent beta testing, not in-market programs.
etm is an acronym for Event and Task Manager. It provides a simple, intuitive format for using plain text files to store event, task, and other data items, a command line interface for viewing stored information in a variety of convenient ways, and a cross-platform, PyQt-based GUI for creating and modifying items as well as viewing them. Displayed items can be grouped by date, context, keyword, or project and can be filtered in various ways. A display of busy and free times is also supported, as is a ledger view of time spent that is suitable for client billing. Alarms are supported for events and repetition for both events and tasks in a powerful and flexible manner.
Release Notes: This version adds icon and man(1) files to the distribution and corrects requirements given in the INSTALL file.
DKPro Lab is a lightweight framework for parameter sweeping experiments. It allows the user to set up experiments consisting of multiple interdependent tasks in a declarative manner with minimal overhead.

Data produced by a task for any particular parameter configuration is stored and re-used whenever possible to avoid needless recalculation of results. Reports can be attached to each task to post-process the experimental results and present them in a convenient manner (e.g., as tables or charts).
Release Notes: Upgraded to uimaFIT 2.0.0. Better support for Groovy; in particular, get/setProperty in Task has been renamed to get/setAttribute to resolve a clash with Groovy method names.
