Download Website 16 May 21:53 RemoteBox 1.8


RemoteBox is a graphical tool which lets you administer guests or virtual machines running under VirtualBox on a remote server or even your local machine if desired. You may, for example, have a root server on the Internet, a server at home, or a server at work running VirtualBox but want to have the convenience of managing the guests easily from your local machine. The virtual machines run in headless mode, which means you don't need an active graphical display on the server but you can still connect and view the displays of the guests. The goal of RemoteBox is to provide a GUI that should be familiar to VirtualBox users while allowing them to administer a remote installation of VirtualBox. It does this via the VirtualBox API and SOAP interface, which are exposed when running the VirtualBox Web service. You can also use RemoteBox simply as an alternative interface for managing VirtualBox on your local machine.

Release Notes: Adds an option to start and stop guests automatically on host start and shutdown. Major visual improvements to the snapshot tree and significant changes and optimizations to list handling. Adds support for guest groups, additional guest keyboard sequences, and support for creating, configuring, and destroying NAT networks. Many other minor features and changes have been added. This version also has several bugfixes.

It resolves improper chart rendering issues as well, including issues with the wrong chart area color, missing markers, missing high-low lines, and the incorrect chart type being rendered in exported PDFs. Apart from rendering issues, there are improvements in presentation access, and fixes for saving issues for some presentation decks that failed to be accessed or saved in older versions.

Download Website 16 May 18:44 Epoch Init System 1.1 "Sirius"


The Epoch Init System is an init system for Linux designed with ease of configuration and non-intrusiveness in mind. It has no external dependencies besides libc and pthreads on a Linux 2.6+ system, though a working /bin/sh is suggested. It's suitable for large and small Linux distributions, but was designed with a focus on smaller Linux systems. It's features include a log system capable of recording boot events before the filesystem is made writable, ASCII runlevels, a convenient, single configuration file setup, automatic hostname setting at boot, automatic virtual filesystem mounting (think /proc), PID file support, stuck job killing during bootup and shutdown, integrated color greeting banner support, and automatic service restart support, to keep vital services running at all times.

Release Notes: This release adds many enhancements, including the highly-requested multiple configuration file support. Better process tracking, more useful object options, environment variable setting support, and custom exit-code handling are just some of the new features. It is a highly-recommended upgrade.

Download Website 16 May 18:43 Query Interface 1.3


Query Interface is a Wordpress plugin that allows you to run database queries in the admin panel.

Release Notes: This release adds Queries to display on the footer of every page, to show how much queries are running on page, including their time and pages from where they're called, a Running Queries button to display currently-running queries on the website, and a Display Indexes button to check the indexes of the given table.

Download Website 16 May 18:42 Docx to Text Converter (docx2txt) 1.4


docx2txt is a tool that attempts to generate equivalent text files from (even corrupted) Microsoft .docx documents, preserving some formatting and document information (which MS text conversion drops) along with appropriate character conversions for a good (ASCII) text experience. It is a platform independent solution consisting of (core) Perl and (wrapper) Unix/Windows shell scripts and a configuration file to control the output text appearance to fair extent. It depends upon a commandline unzipping program (like unzip, 7z, pkzipc, or wzunzip) that can silently extract single files from zip archives to console/standard output/pipe. It can very conveniently be used to build a Web based docx document conversion service. Some Makefiles and Windows batch files are provided for easy installation of the scripts. With unzippers like CakeCmd that can deal with corrupt Zip archives, this tool can extract text from corrupt docx documents in many cases, where MS word processor fails to even open them.

Release Notes: This release adds the configuration variable config_unzip_opts. This removes the dependency on the unzip program and allows users to use unzipping programs like 7z, pkzipc, and winzip as well. This release also fixes list numbering, improves list/paragraph indentation and corresponding code, and updates the README with brief guidance on how this utility can be used to recover text from corrupted docx file.

No download Website 16 May 18:41 OOoPy 1.11


OOoPy is a Python library for modifying OpenOffice.org documents. It provides a set of transformations on the OOo XML format using the ElementTree XML Library.

Download No website 16 May 15:26 Univention Corporate Server (UCS) UCS 3.2-2


UCS is a reliable, pre-configured Linux server operating system featuring: Active Directory-like domain services compatible with Microsoft Active Directory; a mature and easy-to-use Web-based management system for user, rights, and infrastructure management; a scalable underlying concept suited for single server scenarios as well as to run and manage thousands of clients and servers for thousands of users within one single UCS domain; an app center providing single-click installation and integration of many business applications from 3rd parties and Univention; management capabilities to manage Linux- and UNIX-based clients; and command line, scripting interfaces, and APIs for automatization and extension. Its purpose is to provide Microsoft Server-like services on the cloud or on the premises, to run and operate corporate IT environments with Windows- and Linux-based clients, and to extend those environments with proven enterprise software.

Release Notes: This release adds various usability and security updates, including an update to Debian version 6.0.9. Software manufacturers can now select between the processor architectures 32 and 64 bit for the provision of apps in the App Center. The AD integration to UCS is optimized, e.g. the domain join of Windows clients to a UCS domain. The App Center is extended and includes new apps and UCS components, e.g. the RADIUS app for access control of internal WLAN networks and the AD Takeover assistant for complete migration of AD domains to UCS.

Download Website 16 May 15:25 Alaya Webdav Server 1.4.0


Alaya is a primitive chrooting Web server with basic WebDAV support. It can serve HTTPS and HTTP, and can authenticate using PAM, /etc/shadow, /etc/passwd, or using its own authentication files that allow for 'native' users that only have access to alaya content. It's intended to be a simple method of sharing content over WebDAV, and though it can be configured with a config file, it's easy to configure by command-line switches alone. Alaya always chroots to ensure that malicious users can't use '..' within a URL to access unintended documents, and that users can't accidentally leave documents in places outside of the chroot. It has a 'ChHome' mode that chroots users into their home directory and serves content from there. It supports .cgi scripts out of a trusted path (so not from within the chrooted WebDAV share) and read-only shared directories that are outside of the chroot (allowing access to shared content when in ChHome mode).

Release Notes: This release adds HTTP Keep-Alive and HTTP cache-control features, bugfixes for issues with large files, bugfixes for security issues, and Mime icons for directory listings.

Download Website 16 May 14:43 greed 3.10


greed is a strategy game. When you move in a direction, you erase N grid squares in that direction, N being the first number in that direction and your score for the move. You cannot move onto a space you have already eaten, and the game ends when you cannot move.

Release Notes: This release fixes a GREEDOPTS bug.

Download No website 16 May 14:39 libpfrng 0.0.9


libpfrng is a userspace library which provides a high-quality but slow random number generator based on CPU timing jitter. It passes Diehard, FIPS, NIST, and entropy tests, and is high-rated by CAcert RNG test.

Download Website 16 May 02:44 Password Manager Daemon 3.0.7


Password Manager Daemon serves clients data via a Unix domain socket or over a remote TLS connection. The data is stored in an (optionally) encrypted XML file, and the client must provide the key to modify it. It has the option to use gpg-agent for key management (including smartcards). It is multi-threaded, allowing more than one client to be connected at the same time. Key retrieval may be done via a key file or a pinentry program. A key cache is used, so a client won't need to enter a passphrase each time one is required. It is very configurable. Libpwmd is also available as a separate project and is a library making it easy for applications to use Pwmd.

Release Notes: This version reverts the change made in 3.0.5 that required element names to conform to the XML spec, making pwmd less useful.

Download Website 16 May 02:44 SchemaCrawler 10.09.01


SchemaCrawler is a Java API which makes working with database metadata as easy as working with ordinary Java objects. It is also a database schema discovery and comprehension and schema documentation tool. You can search for database schema objects using regular expressions, output the schema and data in a readable text format, and find potential design issues with lint . The output is designed to be diff-ed against other database schemas. SchemaCrawler supports almost any database which has a JDBC driver, but for convenience is bundled with drivers for some commonly-used RDBMS systems. SchemaCrawler works with any operating system which supports Java.

Release Notes: Table is based on a string, not an enum.

Areca is a file backup system that supports data compression (zip / zip64 format) and encryption, incremental backups, FTP/SFTP file transfer, delta storage mode, and many other features. It includes a transaction mechanism, which guarantees the integrity of your backups. Two user interfaces are available: a command-line interface (useful for backup automation) and a graphical user interface (useful for backup administration).

Release Notes: This version fixes a bug that could occur on POSIX systems when the file's owner group was empty. It also adds the ability to limit Areca's throughput when writing files.

No download Website 16 May 02:43 etmTk 0.1.23


etmTk is an event and task manager. In contrast to most calendar/todo applications, creating items (events, tasks, and so forth) in etm does not require filling out fields in a form. Instead, items are created as free-form text entries using a simple, intuitive format and stored in plain text files. Both a graphical user interface based on Tkinter and a command line interface are provided.


Release Notes: Preserves histories of job completions in task groups. Only adds timezones to items with dates. Various bugfixes.

Download Website 16 May 02:43 The Sound of Sorting 0.6.5


The "Sound of Sorting" is a demo program containing many integer sorting algorithms. The algorithms are visualized in real time and augmented with sound effects, which are based on the values being compared. Animation speed and sound sustain can be customized while the algorithm is running. The visualization also highlights the algorithm's internal workings, which makes the demo program very useful for teaching sorting algorithms in an undergraduate computer science course. The program also counts the number of comparisons done by an algorithm, which can then be compared to the analytically derived value. The demo is implemented using the cross-platform toolkits wxWidgets and SDL, and can be executed on Windows, Linux, and Mac.

Release Notes: New sorting algorithms: Binary-Search Insertion Sort, Block Merge Sort (WikiSort), Cycle Sort, and Dual-Pivot Quick Sort. Displaying the current number of inversions and runs in an array. Microseconds delay on Win32 using QueryPerformanceCounter().
