GNU ed is an 8-bit clean implementation of the POSIX line-oriented text editor. Ed is the "standard" text editor in the sense that it is the original editor for Unix, and thus widely available. For most purposes, however, it is superseded by full-screen editors such as GNU Emacs or GNU Moe.


Release Notes: "ed.texinfo" has been renamed "ed.texi", following the advice of automake.

Release Notes: This release provides better management of wireless connections and awareness of connection state, which means that this release of xiwtool works better with most common Linux networking utilities. Release 0.12 also adds the ability to display connection status and signal strength while the xiwtool window is minimized.

LinOTP is a solution for strong two-factor authentication with one time passwords. It features a modular architecture into which UserIdResolver, authentication, and OTP calculation modules can be plugged.

Supported tokens are HMAC-OTP/HOTP (RFC 4226/ OATH compliant), Aladdin eToken PASS, eToken NG-OTP, Safeword Alpine, Yubikey, Google Authenticator, motp, SMS OTP/Mobile TAN, email token, and a Simple Pass token for users without token hardware. TOTP is supported, along with a new algorithm for daily passwords for applications not supporting RADIUS. OCRA tokens are supported to allow transaction signing in banking environments. CLI, Web, and GTK+ GUI clients are available for management. LinOTP features multi-client capability, redundancy, and a self-service portal. It has been used with PAM for local and SSH logins, Apache, VPN, and Windows Terminal Server, and is OATH certified.


Release Notes: This release fixes a problem with LDAPS connections, catches token exceptions to prevent errors when processing several tokens, and fixes an error which prevented LDAP Resolver from unbinding.

PIT is a fast bytecode based mutation testing system for Java that makes it possible to test the effectiveness of your unit tests. You can think of mutation testing as either as an automated test of your tests or as a much more in-depth form of code coverage. Unlike traditional line and branch coverage tools, PIT does not just confirm that your tests execute your code, it confirms that your tests are actually able to detect faults in it.

Release Notes: This release adds support for Java 8 and JUnit categories an restores Maven 2 compatibility.

By default, instant messaging is now enabled for new domains. In the settings module, sync was fixed for LG mobiles and the Exchange migration tool was enhanced to support IMAP folders with special characters and to fix migration of some recurring events.

Download Website 20 Feb 13:37 Tomb 1.5.1


Tomb is a system to make strong encryption easy for everyday use. A tomb is like a locked folder that can be safely transported and hidden in a filesystem. Its keys can be kept separate; for example, you can keep the tomb on your computer and its key on a USB stick. Tomb is written in code that is easy to review and links shared components: it consists of a ZShell script and desktop integration apps; it uses standard GNU tools and the cryptographic API of the Linux kernel (dm-crypt) via cryptsetup.

Release Notes: This release fixes a small vulnerability when trying to use keys piped from stdin: they were not correctly processed and left encrypted in RAM (tmpfs).

Download Website 20 Feb 13:33 Performance Co-Pilot 3.9.0


Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) is a framework and set of services for supporting system-level performance monitoring and performance management. It provides a unifying abstraction for all of the interesting performance data in a system, and allows client applications to easily retrieve and process any subset of that data using a single API. A client-server architecture allows multiple clients to monitor the same host, and a single client to monitor multiple hosts. Archive logging and replay are integrated so that a client application can use the same API to process real-time data from a host or historical data from an archive.

Release Notes: Several packaging changes were made. Some daemons were moved into separate packages, and "multilib" RPMs are now correctly supported. This release added feature enhancements and bugfixes in the Linux kernel, Glusterfs and MMV agents, and the pmlogextract, pmdumplog, pmmgr, and pmie utilities. The Python API has been updated to correctly support the PMAPI time interfaces.

GIMP SCRIPT-FUs is a collection of SCRIPT-FUs that have been modified to work with the most recent versions of GIMP.
