Download Website 11 Jan 22:36 makepp 2.0rc2


Makepp, a build program that has a number of features that allow for reliable builds and simpler build files, is a drop-in replacement for GNU make. It supports almost all of the syntax that GNU make supports, and can be used with makefiles produced by utilities such as automake. It is called makepp (or make++) because it was designed with special support for C++, which has since been extended to other languages like Swig or embedded SQL. Some features that makepp adds to make are: greatly improved handling of builds that involve multiple makefiles (recursive make is no longer necessary); automatic scanning for include files; rebuilds triggered if build command changes; checksum-based signature methods for reliable builds, smart enough to ignore whitespace or comment changes; extensibility through Perl programming (within your makefile); repositories (automatically importing files from another tree); and build caches (not recompiling identically what a user of the same cache already did).

Release Notes: Only few minor bugs were reported since rc1, and all have been fixed. The major change is installation of HTML documentation in a new format, the same one that is also used for the newly designed Web site.

Download Website 11 Jan 22:08 aria2 1.14.1


aria2 is a utility for downloading files. The supported protocols are HTTP(S), FTP, BitTorrent, and Metalink. It has a powerful segmented downloading ability, downloading a file from multiple sources and multiple protocols and utilizing your download bandwidth to the maximum. It supports downloading a file from HTTP(S)/FTP and BitTorrent at the same time, while the data downloaded from HTTP(S)/FTP is uploaded to the BitTorrent swarm. Using Metalink's chunk checksums, aria2 automatically validates chunks of data while downloading a file like BitTorrent.

Release Notes: This release fixes the bug that prevents the --checksum option from working correctly. It also fixes the bug where a log file was not created if a warn level log was created before the log file was opened. Now aria2 doesn't assume the download has completed just because file size matched. The old behavior is problematic, because aria2 just assumes the download is completed, but in reality it is not.
