For example, the initial version allows you to embed a document description from different entities: source language, GraphViz DOT graphs, Latex math, etc.
Release Notes: GnuPlot integration. Many bugfixes for HTML and LaTeX output.
Lernstick Exam Environment is a live Linux distribution with a focus on exam situations, usually installed on USB sticks. To provide up-to-date software choice on a solid base, it uses a combination of Debian stable with official and custom backports. Access to local storage media (internal hard drive, other USB storage media) or network access is prohibited per default, but certain network connections (e.g., to network printers or websites) can be allowed in a whitelist.
Release Notes: A continuous backup solution (based on rdiff-backup) was integrated and can be optionally activated. Per default, the complete home directory of the user is backed up to the exchange partition in regular intervals. This way the damage that could be caused by accidental file deletions in exam situations is minimized. The backup details (source directory, destination directory, and frequency) can be customized. LibreOffice, Iceweasel, gretl, and the NVIDIA GPU drivers were updated.
PDF OCR is a simple drag-and-drop utility that converts PDFs and images into text documents. It uses advanced OCR (optical character recognition) technology to extract the text of the PDF or image. This is particularly useful for dealing with PDFs and images that were created via a scan-to-PDF function in a scanner or photo copier. It uses the Tesseract engine to perform OCR, and currently supports over 20 languages for OCR.
Release Notes: Fixes an issue with handling some PDFs with rotation set.

Improvements to the TORCS Racing Board (public download of robots from past championships; reviewing best lap times per track). Many little improvements and bugfixes.
Pies is a Python 2 and Python 3 compatibility layer with the philosophy that all code should be Python 3 code. Starting from this viewpoint means that when running on Python 3, Pies adds virtually no overhead. Instead of providing a bunch of custom methods (leading to Python code which looks out of place on any version), Pies aims to backport as many of the Python 3 API calls, imports, and objects to Python 2 as possible, relying on special syntax only when absolutely necessary.
Release Notes: This is a complete refactor of the Pies library, to make it based on the perspective of backporting features to Python 2.

Release Notes: This is a stable release with a uid_map file security fix and many other bugfixes.
LMDB is an ultra-fast, ultra-compact key-value data store developed by Symas for the OpenLDAP Project. It uses memory-mapped files, so it has the read performance of a pure in-memory database while still offering the persistence of standard disk-based databases, and is only limited to the size of the virtual address space (it is not limited to the size of physical RAM).
Release Notes: The main change is how heap-allocated memory is handled by default; it is now initialized to zeroes before use. A MDB_NOMEMINIT option has been added to disable this, since it may have a slight performance cost depending on data sizes. Some regressions from 0.9.9 were fixed in mdb_page_split() and mdb_cursor_del(), and some build issues with Windows64 were fixed.
Alchemy OS is a MIDlet which creates an operating environment inside a mobile phone. Although it is not an operating system in the full sense, it provides a rich platform to develop, compile, and run applications directly in the phone.
Release Notes: This release fixes quite serious bugs: Hexadecimal character literals (like '\u03C0') were parsed incorrectly by the compiler, and the asin() and atan() functions returned incorrect values.
