paexec distributes performing the given tasks (stdin) across several CPUs or machines in a network.
Release Notes: The option -x instructs paexec(1) to run one command per task. Improvements for the option -n. The option '-m t=<eot>' sets an alternative end of task marker. The option -md=<delim> sets a delimiter between tasks in graph mode (-g). An output line that contains failed dependants no longer ends with an unnecessary delimiter character. Long options were completely removed. "paexec_reorder -g" now correctly handles failed tasks' output. The option -m was added to paexec_reorder(1), which is similar to paexec's -m. More examples and regression tests. Documentation updates and improvements.
Coccigrep is a semantic grep for the C language. It can be used to find where in code files a given structure is used or where one of its attributes is used, set, or used in a test.
Release Notes: This release improves the capabilities of the func match where coccigrep search when a structure is used as an argument of a function.
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 2012/Sep/10). DRBL was updated to 2.1.3-drbl1, and Clonezilla was updated to 3.1.5-drbl1. This release uses drbl-run-parts instead of run-parts, which will be more straightforward. A reserved image name "autoproductname" was added so that Clonezilla can use that to save and restore images based on the manufacturer and product name (from dmidecode).
runawk is a small wrapper for the AWK interpreter that helps one write standalone AWK scripts. Its main feature is to provide a module/library system for AWK which is somewhat similar to Perl's "use" command. It also allows one to select a preferred AWK interpreter and to set up the environment for AWK scripts. Dozens of ready for use [modules].awk are also provided.
Release Notes: paexec(1) doesn't use system(3) anymore for removing the temporary directory. The function print_help() was moved from the power_getopt.awk module to init_getopt.awk.
RCP100 is a modular router control plane for Linux platforms. It can be used as a standalone router, or it can be deployed as an embedded router in a virtualized environment.

MicroSweeper is Minesweeper-like game intended for J2ME-capable (MIDP 2.0, CLDC 1.1) hand-held devices. The game allows optional determinism, which when turned on, ensures that each mine can be discovered without guessing. Besides the traditional game, it provides a pseudo-hexagonal grid and games with various "neighborhood" patterns, where the number on the field is computed from mines located further from the field itself.
Release Notes: This release brings two new game variants, touch screen support, and new visual hints. In the first new game variant, row and column sums are available; the second is a "full plan" game, where field counts are known even for closed fields.
Window Switch is a tool that allows you to move applications between networked computers. The windows appear where you need them, as they were. You no longer need to save and send documents to move them around; simply move the view of the application to the machine where you need it.
Release Notes: This release fixes log file rotation (which prevented auto-start from working on KDE, as well as causing some other problems). It fixes some missing icons for the system tray on some platforms (Ubuntu). Pre-loading and pre-connection of Xpra sessions is enabled again. NX keyboard mapping. Error notifications are no longer shown when stopping or disconnecting from a server. There are packaging fixes.
Hiawatha is a secure and advanced Web server for Unix. It has been written with security as its main goal. It features advanced access control, prevention of SQL injection and cross-site scripting, banning of clients who try such exploits, the ability to run CGIs under any UID/GID you want, and many other features. These features make Hiawatha an interesting Web server for those who need more security than what the other available Web servers are offering. Hiawatha is also fast and easy to configure.
Release Notes: The most important change in this release is a bugfix. Hiawatha could crash in case of a high amount of simultaneous connections due to the usage of select(). This function has been replaced with poll(). Other changes are that Hiawatha now returns 403 instead of 401 when a user enters a correct password for HTTP authentication but he/she is not in the right group, and the error messages have been restyled.
British bingo is a browser-based European-style bingo game. (A European bingo board has 3 rows, 9 columns, and 15 numbers.) The game simulates the other players. Players make mistakes. They forget to mark numbers and mark the wrong numbers. Players chat. (For example, saying they only have a few numbers left, or telling you when you have forgotten to mark a square.) Players leave, join, and re-join between and during games.
Release Notes: With this release, you can now hear players checking their numbers with the caller when they have a 'line' or 'house'.
Crack is a programming language that aims to provide the ease of development of a scripting language with the performance of a compiled language. The "crack" program is a "script executor" that compiles source to machine code on the fly, though it will cache the code to intermediate formats as appropriate. The crack language itself derives concepts from C++, Java, and Python, incorporating object-oriented programming, operator overloading, and strong typing.
Release Notes: The license was changed from the LGPLv3 to the MPL 2.0. The codebase was ported to LLVM 3.1. 16-bit integer types, the "alias" statement, indented string constants, and an assert annotation were added. A version of cast was created that returns a default instead of throwing an exception when the cast fails. Support was added for virtual methods in extension classes. Many new extensions and modules were added. Subprocess multiplexing was implemented. Many bugfixes and small enhancements were implemented.
Liblouis is a Braille translator and back-translator. It features support for computer and literary braille, supports contracted and uncontracted translation for very many languages, and has support for hyphenation. New languages can be added easily through tables that support a rule based or dictionary based approach. It also includes tools for testing and debugging tables. Liblouis also supports math Braille (Nemeth and Marburg). The formatting of Braille is provided by the companion project liblouisxml. Liblouis has features to support screen-reading programs.
Release Notes: This release contains a tremendous amount of work by many developers. Many long standing bugs have been fixed. The tables can finally be in UTF-8. A grand table cleanup removed duplication from the tables. There are now two extensive test frameworks for table writers. A number of new tables have been contributed on top of the usual assortment of table improvements. Thanks to all of this, liblouis has already seen quite a bit of uptake in a number of places; notably, the DAISY pipeline will ship with this release of liblouis.
Blue Mind is a messaging and collaboration platform. It offers scalable shared messaging, calendars and contacts with advanced mobility (iPhone, iPad, Android, etc.), and Outlook and Thunderbird connectivity support. Designed with simplicity as a goal, it uses Web 2.0 technologies with a Javascrit UI, offline Web capability, and a Web-services-oriented pluggable architecture.
Release Notes: All expected features are in. This release adds full meeting handling on all devices (Smartphones, Outlook, Thunderbird, and Web). Calendar can display declined events and event location in the popup. Auto-complete now hides empty groups. Webmail has been updated to roundcube 0.8 with its own ICS plugin. The contact app has been completed with an improved UI, distribution list management (with sync with Outlook and Thunderbird lists), and offline search. Many other enhancements and fixes were made.
Rescatux is a GNU/Linux rescue CD that comes with Rescapp, a nice wizard that will guide you through your rescue tasks. It can restore Grub to the MBR update a Grub configuration, perform filesystem checks, fix a Windows MBR, and more. Features that can indirectly assist the rescue process include chat programs to let you reach human online help, a share log (automatic pastebin), and a share log that uses formatting appropriate for posting on a forum.
Release Notes: Beta options are now shown as optional (BETA). The syslinux version has AMD64 boot as the default, so the Restore Grub option works in most cases. Copyright notices were added to the source code files.
Collax V-Family is a management suite based on a 64bit Linux system and KVM to provide server virtualization. It offers solutions for single virtualization hosts, as well as high availability management on two or more nodes, allowing embedded HA storage using DRBD and iSCSI. By using live snapshots, automatic live migration, and incremental backups, the availability of virtual machines is increased tremendously in case of hardware and software maintenance or even hardware failures. Virtual network switches and the protocols GVRP, LLDP, and RSTP help to set up a virtual DMZ.
Release Notes: This release provides a multi-path iSCSI target on DRBD devices (highly available SAN). It supports 3 or more node cluster setups using drbd, GUI managed storage migration for storage types iSCSI, drbd, disk images, and logical volumes. GUI managed export of cluster share via SMB, NFS, Appleshare, and FTP. Virtual CPUs have increased to 64 per virtual machine. Kernel 3.0.41.
