libextractor is a library used to extract meta-data from files of arbitrary type. It is designed to use helper-libraries to perform the actual extraction, and to be trivially extendable by linking against external extractors for additional file types. The goal is to provide developers of file-sharing networks, file managers, and WWW-indexing bots with a universal library to obtain meta-data about files. It includes a shell-command and bindings for Java (JNI) and Python.
Release Notes: This release adds a plugin for extracting audio previews and ensures that one blocking (or slow) plugin does not prevent other plugins from progressing.
PC-BASIC is an interpreter for GW-BASIC files. It can run and convert between ASCII, bytecode, and "protected" (encrypted) .BAS files. It implements floating-point arithmetic in the Microsoft Binary Format (MBF) and can therefore read and write binary data files created by GW-BASIC.
Release Notes: This is the initial beta release. It is almost feature-complete, but expect a lot of rough edges.
phpMyAdmin is a tool intended to handle the administration of MySQL over the Web.

Release Notes: A warning about incomplete exports has been added.
OGLplus is a header-only library that implements a thin object-oriented facade over the OpenGL (version 3 and higher) C-language API. It provides wrappers that automate the resource and object management and make the use of OpenGL in C++ safer and easier.
Release Notes: Experimental support for OpenGL ES v 3.0 was added. A first example for Android usable with the NDK and GLESv3 was added. The sources were cleaned up and the implementation of some functions was moved to the implement/ directory. The build system was updated, and several bugs were fixed.
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 release improves cross-Python version ast support.
Beets is a media library management system designed for obsessive-compulsive music geeks. It catalogs your collection, automatically improving its metadata as it goes using the MusicBrainz database. It also downloads cover art for albums it imports. Then it provides a bouquet of tools for manipulating and accessing your music. Beets also includes a music player that speaks the MPD protocol, so you can play music in your beets library using any MPD client.
Release Notes: This update brings new plugins for fetching acoustic metrics and listening statistics, many more options for the duplicate detection plugin, and flexible options for fetching multiple genres. The “core” of beets gained a new built-in command: beet write updates the metadata tags for files, bringing them back into sync with your database.

Release Notes: Significant performance improvements have been made to both memory usage and compiler speed.
Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.
Release Notes: Consecutive calls of write in bas7.sd7 have been combined into single calls of write respectively writeln. Several links have been added to the FAQ. The types cardSuit and cardRank and the functions cardPixmap and cardBackside have been added to the library cards.s7i. The library cards.s7i has been improved to use functions from pic_util.s7i. The program carddemo.sd7 has been improved to use the new types and functions from cards.s7i.

It includes the following fixes: an option to store username & password, so that authentication doesn't expire after a couple of weeks; a means to enable fast polling, for those who have been having problems with getting notifications to work; a number of crash fixes; and changes to allow it to install cleanly on the Raspberry Pi.
Pride combines bash scripts, zenity, ant, ImageMagick, and the Android tools to create a fast and simple POSIX alternative for Android development. It provides all the basic commands (clean, build, release, etc.) of other Android IDEs. But it is primarily a robust and simple injection framework. Injections from methods to clusters of activities are easily created from existing code and can then be injected into any project. Pride can also be used to batch build, load, or release multiple projects and can update class and resource files among projects that use the same objects or resources.
Release Notes: All activity and cluster injections using ListActivity classes have been extended to EdgeEffectListActivity classes. Bugfixes were made to the FileChooserLocal activity injection. Example files were added to the FileChooserSdAppDir activity. The MoDaBrowser source has been moved from injections to .pride/plate/apps, and its use is described in the project man page.
Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. It also enables software developers to create new communication tools with built-in privacy features. It provides the foundation for a range of applications that allow organizations and individuals to share information over public networks without compromising their privacy. Individuals can use it to keep remote Websites from tracking them and their family members. They can also use it to connect to resources such as news sites or instant messaging services that are blocked by their local Internet service providers (ISPs).
Release Notes: This release features a new circuit handshake and link encryption that use ECC to provide better security and efficiency; makes relays better manage circuit creation requests; uses "directory guards" to reduce client enumeration risks; makes bridges collect and report statistics about the pluggable transports they support; and cleans up and improves the geoip database. The release also includes many stability, security, and privacy fixes.
Meson aims to be the most usable and fast build system. It provides a simple yet powerful mostly declarative language for describing your build. It has native support for modern tools and frameworks, such as Qt5, code coverage, unit tests, precompiled headers, and others. It utilizes a host of optimization techniques to compile your code faster on both full and incremental builds.
Release Notes: There are two kinds of platforms, those with package managers and those without. To support the latter, people usually attach the source code of dependencies in their source tree. Distribution packagers do not like this because they have to unbundle them. This version of Meson solves the problem by introducing embeddable subprojects. With them, it is trivial to write build definitions which use packaged dependencies when they are available and bundled ones when they are not.
GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.
Release Notes: This release detects whether the buffer dir $TMPDIR runs out of space. This changes a central piece of code, making this release alpha quality. --keep-order --(n)onall will sort according to sshlogin. This release detects the number of CPUs on DEC Tru64. For GNU sql, --list-tables is added for sqlite3.
libpondyparser is yet another multi-core C++ parser threaded propagation library using Markov Models. This library packages a keyword reference counted parser library using threads which are progagated with reinforcement learning.
Release Notes: The library can now be used by implementing operators to transform between states and steering the rest of the forked parser among other things.
