Micro Tetris is based on the 1989 International Obfuscated C Code Contest Best Game entry. It is a very small implementation, with extreme similarity to the BSD Tetris implementation. So it is very suitable for small embedded systems with only serial or SSH console access. The code uses no curses or other heavy libraries, only ANSI escape sequences and the Unix "stty" command to setup and restore the display.
Release Notes: Small fixes.
Clonezilla is a partition or disk cloning tool similar to Symantec Ghost. It saves and restores only blocks in use on the hard drive if the file system is supported. For unsupported file systems, dd is used instead. It has been used to clone a 5 GB system to 40 clients in about 10 minutes.
Release Notes: The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2014/Apr/22). The Linux kernel was updated to 3.13.10-1 and drbl was updated to 2.8.16-drbl1.
Evo/Lution is a live CD with a graphical installer for Arch Linux. Evo, the live CD, is an Arch based OS that cannot be installed. It is simply a platform to run the Lution installer, which is made to install Arch. It has options to install anything ranging from the Arch base, to base + the packages you select, including complete turn key desktop environments. The installer downloads all the packages you select from the Arch repositories during the install process so you always end up with a current, up to date install.
Release Notes: This minor release fixed a corrupted .iso file. A new upload process will be implemented to prevent similar problems in future.
phplist is a mailing list and newsletter manager that allows posting via a Web page. It works well when used for announcements, and can handle very large email address lists. Users can sign up to multiple lists, but will only receive a single copy of cross-posted messages. When signing up, users can identify their geographical location, and messages can be targetted to these. You can add place holders in your email that will be replaced with personal details (such as the person's name). Users can update their own information, and unlike many other mailing list systems, they can change their email address. HTML emails are supported.
Release Notes: Small fixes and a security update.
Release Notes: This release fixed a regression which made administrators unable to connect as the user (graphical sudo) in the administration console "Maintenance" tab.
gzochi is a framework for developing massively multiplayer online games. A server container provides services to deployed games, which are written in Guile Scheme, that abstract and simplify some of the most challenging and error-prone aspects of online game development: Concurrency, data persistence, and network communications. A very thin client library can be embedded to provide connectivity for client applications written in any language.
Release Notes: This release adds support for two new alternative storage engines: hamsterdb and Symas Lightning (LMDB). The framework now builds on Mac OS X and similar platforms. Some syntactic sugar for creating task callbacks has been added to the Scheme API. A number of memory leaks in the server have been plugged, and some disconnect event handling bugs in the server and the GLib reference client have been fixed.
The Expense Submittal System (ESS) is a Web-based solution for the creation of expense reports, expense report approval, payment, and accounting. The complete expense reporting process is covered. ESS provides report entry, approval routing, corporate policy checking, credit card statement importation, paperless receipt management, and report payment.

ChaosEsque Anthology is a first person shooter. It is a standalone modification of Xonotic which includes extended weapons, maps, vehicles, buildable buildings, mounted weapons, spell casting, monsters, player characters, textures, and game modes.
Release Notes: A 9mm pistol weapon was adde. You can now flood the world with slime. There were improvements and fixes in the level flooding code. Server and Client netfps and ticrate can be set via the misc menu. This allows you to use more bandwidth for a smoother gameplay tradeoff, which is good for LAN games or high speed Internet games where there is low ping.
FLOM is a distributed lock manager that can be used to avoid shell tricks and safely execute different tasks that cannot run at the same time. It manages process serialization in the same way nice manages process prioritization. It implements the same lock mode semantic proposed by VMS DLM to allow non-trivial command serialization use cases. The goal is to "just work"; everything implemented must be useful and easy to use (configuration is reduced to a bare minimum). It works inside a single system or in a network of IP connected systems.
Release Notes: This release introduces support for numeric resources. They can be used when you want to limit the maximum number of concurrent running tasks. By mixing numeric and simple resources, you can model patterns like "1 writer, max N readers" or, more generically, you can implement basic workload balancing features inside a single host or a network of hosts.
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: The partitioning scheme was changed to improve support for UEFI boot. When installing or upgrading several sticks at once, errors are skipped and shown in a summary at the end. Touchpads are now disabled while typing on the keyboard to prevent unintentional mouse clicks. Many applications (VirtualBox, Java, Midnight Commander, GeoGebra, etc.) were upgraded.

OpenNMS is the first enterprise-grade network management platform developed using the open source model. The three main functional areas of OpenNMS are service polling, which monitors services on the network and reports on their "service level"; data collection from the remote systems via SNMP in order to measure the performance of the network; and a system for event management and notifications.
Release Notes: This stable release includes a large number of bugfixes including a fix for a critical security leak in the /rest/users ReST service that could expose sensitive information. It also fixes a long-standing issue with Provisiond that could cause some services to fail to be detected. Upgrading is strongly recommended for all users.
Launch4j is a cross-platform tool for wrapping Java applications distributed as jars in Windows native executables. The executable can be configured to search for a certain JRE version or use a bundled one, and it's possible to set runtime options, like the initial/max heap size. The wrapper also provides better user experience through an application icon, a native pre-JRE splash screen, and a Java download page in case the appropriate JRE cannot be found. The increase in size of the application is small.
Release Notes: A new JREHOMEDIR special variable was added. An Ant problem that appeared in Eclipse Indigo was fixed. The JGoodies libraries were updated. Logging based on the Launch4j environment variable for file association launch testing was added.
Phototonic is an image viewer and organizer for Linux written in C++ and Qt. It is light and fast, does not depend on any desktop environment, supports several thumbnail layouts, and much more.

Large images can now be moved around with the keyboard as well as the mouse. Usability issues were fixed. Qt 5.2 is now used. Missing icons when not in a DE were fixed. Additional image info was added to status and title bars. Issues with thumbnail navigation were fixed.
webStraktor is a programmable World Wide Web data extraction client. It features a scripting language to facilitate the collection, extraction, and storage of information available on the Web, including images. The scripting language uses elements of regular expression and XPath syntax. The standard webStraktor output format is XML based, either in ASCII, UTF-8, or ISO-8859-1 (Latin1). It adheres to the Robots Exclusion Protocol and can be configured to operate anonymously by connecting through proxy servers. Exhaustive logging and tracing information are provided.
Release Notes: Initial Freecode announcement.
The Java Algebra System (JAS) is an object oriented, type safe, multi-threaded approach to computer algebra. JAS provides a well designed software library using generic types for algebraic computations implemented in the Java programming language. The library can be used as any other Java software package, or it can be used interactively or interpreted through a Jython or JRuby front end. The focus at the moment is on commutative and solvable polynomials, power-series, multivariate polynomial factorization, Gröbner bases, and applications.
Release Notes: This release brings the solvable polynomial common divisor package edu.jas.fd in a partially usable condition. The definition of greatest common divisor has changed and left and right gcds are now distinguished. Various improvements were made and bugs were fixed. The GB class constructors with PairList parameters have been completed. There is a new parallel recursive polynomial Gröbner base computation. More cases are handled in the GBAlgorithmBuilder and GBFactory. The jython scripting GB now have selectable sig-based GB algorithms. Unit tests for the new algorithms are added.
Lilith is a logging and access event viewer for the Logback logging framework. It has features comparable to Chainsaw, a logging event viewer for log4j. This means that it can receive logging events from remote applications using Logback as their logging backend. It uses files to buffer the received events locally, so it is possible to keep vast amounts of logging events at your fingertip while still being able to check only the ones you are really interested in by using filtering conditions.
Release Notes: This release brings huge improvements to the usage of conditions, notably in"Focus" and "Exclude" in the popup and "Search" menu. You can save conditions using Cmd/Ctrl-I, and these will show up in the "Saved conditions" section of "Focus" and "Exclude". This will most likely be the last Java 5 compatible version. Development will continue on Java 8.
