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 2013/Dec/17). The drbl package was updated to 2.7.12-drbl1, and clonezilla was updated to 3.8.29-drbl1. A bug where live-config failed to show eject info when rebooting or halting in upstart environments was fixed. The code for restoring MBRs was extracted as a single program, ocs-restore-mbr, allowing it to be used more easily.
S3QL is a file system that stores all its data online. It supports Amazon S3, Google Storage, and OpenStack and effectively provides you with a hard disk of dynamic, infinite capacity that can be accessed from any computer with Internet access. S3QL provides a standard, full featured Unix file system that is conceptually indistinguishable from any local file system. Additional features include compression, encryption, data de-duplication, immutable trees, and snapshotting, which make it especially suitable for online backup and archiving. The design favors simplicity and elegance over performance and feature-creep. Care has been taken to make the source code as readable and serviceable as possible. Solid error detection, error handling, and extensive automated test cases are provided.
Release Notes: Another race condition that could lead to mount.s3ql crashing with `ValueError: I/O operation on closed file` was fixed. S3QL now stores multiple copies of the master encryption key to allow recovery if the backend loses the object holding the primary copy. A problem with automatic cache size detection was fixed (mount.s3ql was treating bytes as kilobytes). An "AttributeError in LegacyDecryptDecompressFilter" crash when reading objects written by old S3QL versions was fixed. A problem with umount.s3ql giving a strange error when the mountpoint is still in use was fixed.
Siren Renamer is a tool that renames, moves, and copies files using an expression. A lot of information associated with a file can be used, including name, extension, dates, and selection number. Other information is extracted from files according to their type: audio, video, image (standard and raw), EXIF, IPTC, Office document, PDF, ePub, HTML, and many others. Many different operations can be performed on character strings, complete directory trees can be processed, and images can be viewed. For example, to change a file name to uppercase with the mp3 extension, the expression can be '%ub.mp3'.
Release Notes: The actions (rename, copy etc.) are disabled in directories that don't support file system modification monitoring.
etm is an acronym for Event and Task Manager. It provides a simple, intuitive format for using plain text files to store event, task, and other data items, a command line interface for viewing stored information in a variety of convenient ways, and a cross-platform, PyQt-based GUI for creating and modifying items as well as viewing them. Displayed items can be grouped by date, context, keyword, or project and can be filtered in various ways. A display of busy and free times is also supported, as is a ledger view of time spent that is suitable for client billing. Alarms are supported for events and repetition for both events and tasks in a powerful and flexible manner.
Release Notes: This release hopefully fixes the tab focus and readline issues under Windows and the Ctrl-W close without saving issue. Several Unicode issues in the command line version have also been fixed. For repeating items with @- (exclude) entries, a check is now made to ensure that excluded datetimes match the ones actually generated by the @r entry to catch @- entry errors. New in both the GUI details view and in the shell loop is a shortcut to schedule (change) the datetime of the item/instance.
Entangle is a desktop application for interacting with digital SLR cameras. With a suitably capable camera, it allows for full manipulation of the camera settings, remote triggering of the shutter, live preview of scenes, and download of captured images. It supports use of monitor colour profiles for accurate on-screen rendering of images. Integration with the GObject introspection framework allows third party extension plugins to enhance the core functionality.
Release Notes: Multiple minor flaws were fixed. Improvements focused on onion skinning and preview modes, camera focusing control, and memory leaks.
Erebus is a 2D real-time role-playing game with three quests and random dungeons. It is a classic point-n-click style RPG, with dungeons to explore, enemies to fight, NPCs to talk to, sub-quests to complete, scenery to interact with, weapons, treasure, and other items to find.
Release Notes: A problem with saving games in some circumstances was fixed. The Android version now supports import/export of saved games. New music was added. SFML 2 is now used in place of Phonon for audio on Windows and Linux. The required Qt library size was reduced by over 10MB (no longer requires WebKit). Lots of other bugfixes and improvements were made.
pmacct is a small set of passive network monitoring tools to account, filter, classify, aggregate, and export IPv4 and IPv6 traffic. A pluggable and flexible architecture allows storing collected network data in memory tables, RDBMSs (MySQL, SQLite, PostgreSQL, BDB), and flat files, and also export via IPFIX, NetFlow, or sFlow protocols to remote collectors. pmacct features fully customizable historical data breakdown, sampling, BGP correlation, tagging, and triggers. Libpcap, ULOG, sFlow v2/v4/v5, NetFlow v1/v5/v7/v8/v9, and IPFIX are supported data capturing methods.
Release Notes: Custom-defined aggregation primitives for NetFlow v9/IPFIX protocols are introduced. Pervasive JSON output and a new RabbitMQ plugin have also been added. Support for Cisco ASA NSEL was re-introduced. The set of MPLS aggregation primitives was broadened to better support L3 MPLS VPNs to include mpls_label_top, mpls_label_bottom, mpls_stack_depth, and mpls_vpn_rd. The Print plugin, which writes traffic stats to flat files, now supports creation of intermediate directory levels and appending. Support for MongoDB was improved with indexing and authentication. This release also includes a number of bugfixes.
Worker is a file manager for the X Window System with the classical two panel interface. It features a fully graphical configuration, while still allowing manual editing of the configuration file without the need to restart Worker. Any external program can be integrated easily into the GUI using buttons, hotkeys, and file type actions. Worker uses file recognition by file content or by filename extension (or both). Different actions with completely configurable commands can be assigned to each file type.
Release Notes: The command menu has been improved to show assigned shortkeys and to list entries about accessing list modes and their configuration. Registered commands are also available in the command menu. The matching characters for a string filter are highlighted in the bookmark, path jump UI, and the list view. The search operation can also be started from a virtual directory. The estimation of the remaining time for file copy has been fixed if elements have been renamed. Some other minor bugs have also been fixed.
slackroll is a package or upgrade manager for Slackware Linux. It is designed to work with official mirrors in systems mainly composed of official packages with a few unofficial packages. It lets you automatically upgrade or install packages, and displays which packages have been added or removed from the Slackware tree.
Release Notes: This release removes an anti-feature that filtered theoretically duplicate packages during the install operation, preventing some packages in third-party mirrors from being selected and installed by the user.
The WiKID Strong Authentication System is a highly scalable, secure two-factor authentication system. It is simple to implement and maintain, allows users to be validated automatically, requires no hardware tokens, has a simple API for application support (via Ruby, PHP, Java, COM, Python, etc.), supports multiple domains, and supports replication for fault tolerance and scalability. It also supports mutual /host and transaction authentication, wireless tokens only domains, locked tokens (to your PC), anti-keystroke logger keypad PIN entry, etc.
Release Notes: A token is now available for the BB10 platform.
cvs-fast-export analyzes a collection of RCS files in a CVS repository (or outside of one) and, when possible, emits an equivalent history in the form of a fast-import stream. Not all possible histories can be rendered this way; the program tries to emit useful warnings when it can't. The program can also produce a visualization of the resulting commit DAG in the DOT format handled by the graphviz suite. The package also includes cvssync, a tool for mirroring masters from remote CVS hosts.
Release Notes: Processing speed has approximately tripled since the last release. Save progress metering was restored. cvssync can now take a CVS URL argument.
The Arcavias TYPO3 extension enables shop owners to seamlessly integrate the Arcavias e-commerce system into the TYPO3 content management system. This combines the best of both worlds, the thousands of extensions available for TYPO3 and the speed and flexibility of Arcavias.
Release Notes: Various remaining bugs were fixed, and handling of selection products was improved. sr_feuser_register was made optional so that the Arcavias TYPO3 extension dependencies won't prevent it being used with TYPO3 6.x. Rebuilding the catalog index now takes only half of the time.
Fimex is a the File Interpolation, Manipulation, and EXtraction library for gridded geospatial data. It converts between different, extensible data formats (currently netcdf, NcML, grib1/2, metgm, wdb, and felt). It enables you to change the projection and interpolation of scalar and vector grids. It makes it possible to subset the gridded data and to extract only parts of the files. For simple usage, Fimex also comes with the command line program fimex.
Release Notes: The Fimex Fortran-interface has been enhanced and is now a first-class interface in the fimex build process, being enabled by a configure switch. Reading of WRF model files was improved by adding vector detection and coordinate recognition. When merging two files, they can now be merged into an independent third grid-definition. Parallelization, in particularly when using Intel Compiler Collection 14 or newer, has been improved. Some smaller bugs when scanning or reading mercator-axes of grib files have been fixed.
juntaDados is a GNU/Linux distribution that has a selection of packages targeted at audio, video, and graphics producers. juntaDados works to simplify the creation of Linux-based multimedia workstations for social projects in Brazil like Pontos de Cultura.

Release Notes: This release is compatible with Thunderbird 24.2.0. It fixes an issue with CalDAV which affected version 2.6.3 with some CalDAV servers. Chunked webdav-sync is now handled correctly.
Curie is a very minimalistic, tiny C library. It supports basic I/O, basic networking, S-expression based I/O, signal handling, process handling, and I/O multiplexing. If the target architecture is explicitly supported, statically linked binaries may be as small as 4-20 kilobytes; if not, then it only relies on the host's C library. The library explicitly does not provide a POSIX interface so that it may be used in conjunction with a regular host libc (or without one).
Release Notes: This release added CPIO support to the library and removed a lot of dead or under-maintained code. There were lots of minor changes all over the place. 'icemake' was removed favor of plain old GNU makefiles.
Knot DNS is a high performance authoritative-only DNS server. It supports all key features of the domain name system including zone transfers, dynamic updates, and DNSSEC.
Release Notes: This release candidate added IDN support in Knot utilities, and in DNSSEC, support for the GOST algorithm. A crash in additional section processing, a race condition in event cancellation, journal corruption after failed transactions, and detection of ECDSA support for DNSSEC were identified and fixed. Memory consumption was optimized even more, and DNS Server Benchmarks (results and source code) were released.
