Diskless Remote Boot in Linux (DRBL) provides a diskless or systemless environment for client machines. It works on Debian, Mandriva, Red Hat, Fedora, and SuSE. Unlike LTSP, it uses distributed hardware resources and makes it possible for clients to fully access local hardware. It also includes Clonezilla, a partitioning and disk cloning utility similar to Symantec Ghost.
Release Notes: The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2014/Feb/11). The Linux kernel was updated to 3.12.9-1. The package drbl was updated to 2.7.24-drbl1, and Clonezilla was updated to 3.9.22-drbl1. parted is used instead of fdisk in makeboot.sh to show the destination disk partition layout.
Gearmand is the job server component of Gearman. Gearman provides a generic framework to farm out work to other machines, dispatching function calls to machines that are better suited to do work, to do work in parallel, to balance the load of processing, or to call functions between languages.
Release Notes: There is a GEARMAN_SERVERS environmental variable for libgearman to pick up servers to communicate with. This means that any driver now linked with libgearman will be able to handle multiple servers. INFO level messages for queue creation have been added.
TXR is a new data munging language. TXR's special pattern language provides template-based matching of entire documents or large sections of documents. It also contains a language for functional and imperative programming. It is written in C and takes the form of a utility that is portable to Unix-like platforms and Windows.
Release Notes: New functions for lazy generation of repeating and non-repeating permutations and combinations. A bugfix in quasistrings.
The OATH Toolkit makes it easy to build one-time password authentication systems. It contains shared libraries, commandline tools, and a PAM module. Supported technologies include the event-based HOTP algorithm (RFC4226) and the time-based TOTP algorithm (RFC6238). OATH stands for Open AuTHentication, which is the organization which specifies the algorithms. For managing secret key files, the Portable Symmetric Key Container (PSKC) format described in RFC6030 is supported.
Release Notes: This release fixes a usersfile bug which caused it to update the wrong line, and fixes a security vulnerability (CVE-2013-7322).
XWiki is a WikiWiki clone written in Java that supports many popular features of other Wikis like the Wiki syntax, version control, attachments, security, and searching, but also many advanced features like templates, database and dynamic development using scripting languages (Velocity, Groovy, Ruby, Python, PHP, and more), an extension system and skinability, J2EE scalability, an XML/RPC remote API, statistics, RSS feeds, PDF exporting, WYSIWYG editing, an Office viewer and importer, and a lot more.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release.
xwax allows DJs and turntablists to playback digital audio files controlled using normal turntables via timecoded vinyl. It handles needle drops, pitch changes, scratching, spinbacks, and rewinds, making it a capable tool for beat-mixing and scratch-mixing. It focuses on an accurate vinyl feel that is efficient, stable, and fast.
Release Notes: This release starts up much more quickly, as the music library is now scanned in the background, crates can be re-scanned, and there are performance improvements.
TerminatorX is a realtime audio synthesizer that allows you to "scratch" on digitally sampled audio data (*.wav, *.au, *.mp3, etc.) the way hiphop-DJs scratch on vinyl records. It features multiple turntables, realtime effects (built-in as well as LADSPA plugin effects), a sequencer, and an easy-to-use GTK+ GUI.
Release Notes: This release brings some polish for the sample widget, delayed initialization of the jack audio engine, and a significant number of bugfixes/updates for deprecated APIs.
Filed is a simple and above all else fast HTTP server for serving local static files over HTTP from Linux. It does the least amount of effort possible to get to the point of handing the actual transfer over to the kernel.
Release Notes: This release adds additional HTTP verb and header support and the ability to log to processes in addition to files.
MultiTail lets you view one or multiple files like the original tail program. The difference is that it creates multiple windows on your console (with ncurses). Merging of 2 or more log files is possible. It can also use colors while displaying the log files (through regular expressions) for faster recognition of what is important. It can also filter lines (again with regular expressions). It has interactive menus for editing given regular expressions and deleting and adding windows. One can also have windows with the output of shell scripts and other software. When viewing the output of external software, MultiTail can mimic the functionality of tools like 'watch'.
Release Notes: The -q/-Q option (which makes MultiTail automatically start following new files) did not work. That is now resolved in this version.
Bocfel is an interpreter for the Z-machine, which means that it can be used to play Infocom games as well as other games based on the Z-machine. It is compliant with version 1.1 of the Z-Machine Standards Document for all Z-machine versions other than 6.
Release Notes: Abbreviations are now provided only when absolutely necessary. Sherlock's "attribute 48" bug is worked around. Sounds are properly loaded from Blorb files. Debugging commands have been added to aid in finding cheats.

All 4MLinux 8.1 applications have been compiled under Fedora 20 (x86/32-bit/SMP) with GNU Compiler Collection 4.8.2.
C-Dogs SDL is a port of the old DOS arcade game C-Dogs to modern operating systems. C-Dogs is an arcade shoot-em-up which lets players work alone or co-operativly during missions, and against each other in the "dogfight" deathmatch mode. The original DOS version of C-Dogs came with several built in missions and dogfight maps, and this version is no exception. The author of the DOS version of C-Dogs is Ronny Wester.
Release Notes: This release includes updated map formats, a big frame rate improvement, and many other enhancements.
PEDSIM is a microscopic pedestrian crowd simulation system. The PEDSIM library allows you to use pedestrian dynamics in your own software. Based on pure C++/STL without additional packages, it runs on virtually every operating system. The PEDSIM Demo Application (Qt) gives you a quick overview of the capabilities, and is a starting point for your own experiments. PEDSIM is suitable for use in crowd simulations (e.g. indoor evacuation simulation, large scale outdoor simulations), where one is interested in output like pedestrian density or evacuation time. The quality of the individual agent's trajectory is high, PEDSIM can be used for creating massive pedestrian crowds in movies. Since libpedsim is easy to use and extend, it is a good starting point for science projects.
Release Notes: This version contains mostly small fixes accumulated over time, but notably one big patch. The model is now in line again with the publications by Prof. Helbing and his team.
ipt_pkd is an iptables extension implementing port knock detection with SPA (single packet authorization). This project provides 3 parts: the kernel module ipt_pkd, the iptables user space module libipt_pkd.so, and a user space client knock program. For the knock packet, it uses a UDP packet sent to a random port that contains a SHA-256 of a timestamp, small header, random bytes, and a shared key. ipt_pkd checks the time window of the packet and does the SHA-256 to verify the packet. The shared key is never sent.
Release Notes: Updated to work with iptables 1.4.21 and Linux kernels up to 3.10. The procfs entry was turned off in kernels >= 3.7; for older kernels, it is now /proc/ipt_pkd/stats. knock.py was switched to be a loadable module that can be imported into other Python scripts.
Cerb is a fast and flexible Web-based platform for business collaboration and automation. It helps you remember anything about anyone, collaborate from anywhere, deftly reply to a flood of email, automate, stay informed, capture feedback, track time, flag opportunities, manage tasks, share expert knowledge, and otherwise execute efficiently.
Release Notes: This maintenance update includes 11 improvements. Tickets may be opened without specifying recipients. An updated field has been added to snippet records. The global search menu is accessible by vision-impaired users with the TAB key. Popup windows can be resized, and they are constrained by the window height. Logo and favicon URLs are validated in setup before saving changes. An issue that prevented the drag reordering of pages and tabs has been fixed. An issue with some conditions showing up blank on "New message on a watched conversation" events has been fixed.
The cptutils package contains a number of utilities for the manipulation of color gradients; mainly for translating between different formats. Formats supported include ggr (GIMP gradient), cpt (GMT color palette table), avl (Arcview Legend), the PaintShop Pro and Photoshop formats, SVG, and CSS3.
Release Notes: This release fixes some bugs in the pssvg program.
