Release Notes: This development update includes a number of portability fixes, improvements to the test environment, and a number of improvements to the internal communication mechanisms.
Burp is a program that backs up and restores data. It uses librsync in order to save on the amount of space that is used by each backup. It also uses VSS (Volume Shadow Copy Service) to make snapshots when backing up Windows computers.
Release Notes: A '-a T' client option which checks whether it is yet time for a backup without actually doing a backup was added. The server now requests the whole file when ctime changes on Windows. Otherwise changes to metadata when the file content is unchanged will not be noticed. 'delete' was added to the client help output. Bugs in the include_glob feature were fixed. When backing up, files and directories are opened with the O_NOATIME flag so that the access time is not changed. A bug where no failure notification was sent when the backup directory could not be created was fixed.
Dateutils are a bunch of tools that revolve around fiddling with dates and times in the command line, with a strong focus on use cases that arise when dealing with large amounts of financial data. Their target market is shell scripts that need date calculations or calendar conversions, and as such they are highly pipe-able and modeled after their well-known cousins (e.g. dtest vs. test, or dgrep vs. grep).
Release Notes: -q|--quiet no longer sends some commands into an infinite loop. NetBSD test failures (due to missing leap seconds) were fixed. AIX builds are now supported (getopt_long() is part of the code now). Internally, the test harness was migrated to the cli-testing tool. This fixes an issue when tests are run in directories with odd names (spaces, dollar signs, etc. in the path name).
BallroomDJ is a ballroom music player. It is designed to let the computer choose the music and to be able to play music the entire evening without intervention. It features flexible playlists, music queue management, requests, seeking in songs, speed with pitch control, and an optional audio file organizer. Playlists can have automatic selections based on your choice of dances and how often those dances should play, stops after some number of songs has been played, stops at a particular time, allowing of songs with certain keywords, sequences, and manual selection. Mix all of these in any order and modify them at any time.
Release Notes: This release adds configurable ratings, having a playlist stop after a period of time (as opposed to at a particular time), and selection of the layout theme to use. Bug fixes include editing genres and changing colors. Localization is now complete, and translations may be added.
ngIRCd is a portable IRC daemon written from scratch.

Fixes an issue where the registration code disappeared on rotation.
