Poppler is a PDF rendering library derived from xpdf. It has been enhanced to utilize modern libraries, and new features have been added. It also provides basic command line utilities.
Release Notes: Initial support for tagged PDFs was implemented. Annotation support was improved. The information given by pdfinfo and pdfimages was expanded. The PSOutputDev device was improved. Various other improvements and bug fixes were made.
Template Data Interface (TDI, /ʹtedɪ/) is a markup templating system written in Python with (optional but recommended) speedup code written in C. Unlike most templating systems, TDI does not invent its own language to provide functionality. Instead, you simply mark the nodes you want to manipulate within the template document. The template is parsed, and the marked nodes are presented to your Python code, where they can be modified in any way you want.
Release Notes: This release adds a new tool collection which handles template dependencies and provides various API and performance improvements and a few bug fixes.
v4l-utils is a collection of various video4linux (V4L) and DVB utilities. libv4l is an accompanying collection of libraries that adds a thin abstraction layer on top of video4linux2 (V4L2) devices. The purpose of this layer is to make it easy for application writers to support a wide variety of devices without having to write separate code for different devices in the same class. It consists of 3 different libraries. libv4lconvert offers functions to convert from any (known) pixel format to V4l2_PIX_FMT_BGR24 or V4l2_PIX_FMT_YUV420. libv4l1 offers the (deprecated) v4l1 API on top of v4l2 devices, independent of the drivers for those devices supporting v4l1 compatibility (which many v4l2 drivers do not). libv4l2 offers the v4l2 API on top of v4l2 devices, while adding support for the application transparent libv4lconvert conversion where necessary.
Release Notes: Various improvements and bug fixes were made.
JStock is stock market software for 26 countries. It provides a stock watchlist, an intraday stock price snapshot, a stock indicator editor, a stock indicator scanner, and portfolio management. Free SMS/email alerts are supported. It integrates seamlessly with Android.
Release Notes: The Brazil stock history server is down. This release uses Google Finance as a backup.
GNU grep is based on a fast lazy-state deterministic matcher (about twice as fast as stock Unix egrep) hybridized with a Boyer-Moore-Gosper search for a fixed string that eliminates impossible text from being considered by the full regexp matcher without necessarily having to look at every character. The result is typically many times faster than Unix grep or egrep.
Release Notes: Usage with multibyte locales was significantly accelerated. Mishandling of patterns like [^^-~] in unibyte locales was fixed. The deprecated "--mmap" option was removed. The behavior of the shortcurts "\s" and "\S" in multibyte locales was fixed. Handling of arbitrary PCRE errors was improved. Various further minor bug fixes were made.
The lzlib compression library provides in-memory LZMA compression and decompression functions, including integrity checking of the decompressed data. The compressed data format used by the library is the lzip format. The lzip file format is designed for long-term data archiving. It is clean, provides very safe 4-factor integrity checking, and is backed by the recovery capabilities of lziprecover.
Release Notes: The compression ratio has been slightly increased. The configure script now accepts the option "--disable-static".
openModeller is a C++ framework providing tools and an API for ecological niche modeling using a variety of algorithms. It can be used to predict species potential distribution based on a set of georeferenced occurrence points and a set of environmental layers.
Release Notes: This release contains a new "meta" algorithm which can use several algorithms behind the scenes to generate a consensus model. A new commandline tool (om_evaluate) can be used to return raw model values given a set of points and an environmental scenario. A new version of the Web service (OMWS 2.0) is also available, including new operations, one of them allowing whole experiments to be specified in a single request. A new raster driver now allows remote files to the fetched and used. There were also many changes in the framework itself.
GluCat is a library of template classes that model the universal Clifford algebras over the field of real numbers, with arbitrary dimension and arbitrary signature. It implements a model of each Clifford algebra corresponding to each non-degenerate quadratic form up to a maximum set by the user. GluCat classes are designed to be used as template parameters for other template libraries. GluCat includes the PyClical extension module for Python. This implements the Python classes index_set and clifford, which interface to corresponding C++ classes in GluCat.
Release Notes: GluCat 0.7.3 fixes a bug where the line print_exec("from PyClical import *") was left out of some of the pyclical_tutorial*.py files. The C++ code, the Cython code, and the configure and Makefiles are unchanged from GluCat 0.7.2, other than updating the version number, and so these have not been tested again.
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 milestone is moving forward on new Flamingo skin and fix many bugs.
Gwyddion is a modular SPM (Scanning Probe Microsope) data visualization and analysis tool. It can be used for all most frequently used data processing operations including: leveling, false color plotting, shading, filtering, denoising, data editing, integral transforms, grain analysis, profile extraction, fractal analysis, and many more. The program is primarily focused on SPM data analysis (e.g. data obtained from AFM, STM, NSOM, and similar microscopes). However, it can also be used for analyzing SEM (scaning electron microscopy) data or any other 2D data.
Release Notes: Three new data synthesis modules were added: columnar film growth, waves, and hybrid non-equilibrium Ising model. A module for the calculation of Euclidean distance transform of masks was added. Moment-related grain quantities was added. Various improvements were made in MetroPro, Omicron, Zeiss, PSIE, Affine correction, and the Read Value tool.

It features an advanced SQL query editor with SQL syntax highlighting, SQL code completion with context sensitive information about database objects (also known as Intellisense), an SQL history buffer for executed SQL commands, SQL code formatting, parallel queries, graphical SQL execution plan with index and selectivity information, SQL abbreviations, and much more. Database diagrams graphically show the structure of the database.
Release Notes: This release opens the current class in Caché Studio, adds some code completion improvements to show more Caché keywords in completion and coloring, adds some code completion display additional information for keywords and functions, and makes icons visualize the completion type (e.g., Table, Column, Schema, Index, etc.). The Type column shows the primary key, datatype, and nullable property. Optimizer hints are listed with additional information Disconnecting a server no longer closes all subpanels. License management has improved.

gjots lets you organize text notes in a convenient, hierarchical way. It can be used for notes, jottings, bits and pieces, recipes, and even PINs and passwords, using encryption. It can also be used to "mind-map" larger compositions like manuals, Web pages, articles, etc. It is a bit like the KDE program "kjots", but uses the GTK library and supports a hierarchy of folders. Files can be output to HTML with an automatic table of contents or to docbook XML. Encryption is supported with ccrypt(1), gpg(1), and openssl(1), so that musings can be kept private.
