SlicedBread is a library that makes it simpler to program multithreaded applications in Java. It does so by doing away with "classic" multithreaded staples - that is, shared state using thread-safe objects - in favor of a set of single-threaded processes that send and receive immutable messages. In a sense it is inspired by Erlang's messaging system. In another, the over 400 rich pages of "Java concurrency in practice" show how hard it is to write and debug a good-mannered multithreaded application in Java.

Release Notes: This release includes the first version of the documentation, which should be enough to get you started with the library. It adds thread pools (multiple threads reading from the same mailbox) and checks thread safety under JMM (JSR-133).

Download Website 28 Nov 23:30 QueueMetrics Espresso 0.5


QueueMetrics Espresso is an automated tool to get a working installation of QueueMetrics on the most common Asterisk-based PBXs. It currently supports FreePBX, AsteriskNOW (with FreePBX interface), TrixBox CE, PBX-in-a-Flash, and Elastix 2.

Release Notes: This release supports Elastix 2.2 with Asterisk 1.8 and native hot-desking, and supports AsteriskNow 1.7.1 (Asterisk 1.6).

Download Website 28 Nov 23:29 lixa 0.5.35


LIXA (LIbre XA) is a Transaction Manager implementing the distributed transaction processing "XA specification" and "TX (transaction demarcation) specification" according to the X/Open CAE Specification. LIXA is a Transaction Manager but it's not a Transaction Monitor; this is the distinguishing feature of the project. LIXA technology enables every application container, like a Web server or a shell, to become an XA compliant application server. The client/server architecture of LIXA allows many application containers to share a single LIXA (state) server; this is ideal when horizontal scalability is a must and many identical application containers must refer to a single transactional environment. Performance, scalability, and high availability are key features of the project. LIXA can be used with the C, C++, and PHP programming languages.

Release Notes: This release is the porting to the Intel/AMD 64-bit architecture for the GNU/Linux operating system.

Download Website 28 Nov 23:29 dtrx 7.1


dtrx intelligently extracts many different archive types. It will get the contents from tar, zip, rpm, deb, and cpio archives, as well as compressed files, with one simple command. It helps keep your filesystem sane by putting every archive's contents into a dedicated directory, and making sure the owner can read and write whatever's extracted. It can even recursively extract archives.

Release Notes: This release supports LZH archives, using the lha tool. It includes a couple of minor bugfixes.

Download Website 28 Nov 23:21 U++ 4193


U++ is a C++ cross-platform rapid application development suite focused on programmers' productivity without sacrificing runtime performance. Based on strictly deterministic design, it provides a viable alternative to garbage-collected platforms, even for business logic oriented problems.

Release Notes: New "Rainbow" technology decouples the U++ GUI from the host platform. It is now possible to develop a new GUI implementation without changing the core U++ files. The "Framebuffer" package uses Rainbow to implement a GUI for a trivial RGBA framebuffer (with keyboard and mouse inputs). The command line utility "umk" (a GUI independent U++ package builder) has been added. The docking package was adopted to the main source tree. There are many other changes in TheIDE and libraries.

Urbi is a robotics software platform. It includes a C++/Java middleware API called UObject to interface components such as motors, cameras, and algorithms, and an innovative scripting language, urbiscript, with built-in support for parallel and event-based programming, used to write high-level behaviors and orchestrate the interactions between components. UObject components are built as shared libraries exposed as native objects within urbiscript, and either hot-plugged in a running Urbi engine, or started as a remote autonomous process communicating with the engine via the network. At any time, new urbiscript code can be sent to a running Urbi engine via a simple telnet, to introspect the state of components, modify existing code, or add new behaviors. Urbi is cross-platform and supports several robots (Gostai Jazz, Lego Mindstorms, Aldebaran Nao, Segway RMP, Spykee, Bioloid, etc.) and a simulator (Webots).

Release Notes: Even more bug and documentation fixes. Boost and ROS have been upgraded. Initial support for pkg-config.

Download Website 28 Nov 23:17 Bible-Discovery 3.0


Bible-Discovery is Bible study and concordance software. It contains several Bible translations, dictionaries, tools for helping to understand the texts in the original language, bookmark handling, customizable font size and color, a biblical text importing pane, and a parallel and comparative Bible read feature.

Release Notes: The appearance of the program has been redesigned. Now it looks like the modern Android version of Bible-Discovery. Already you can write notes as well (e.g., for preaching sermons in church), and you can add your own commentary to the verses. It is possible to integrate e-Books. Essentially, almost any good quality Christian literature can be made readable and searchable by the program (if the raw text format and the license are appropriate, it can be converted) and MySword and TheWord books can be converted easily in the import menu.
