Download Website 23 Jan 02:02 Linux Cluster Management Console 1.2.0


The Linux Cluster Management Console (LCMC) is an application that eases the burden of managing your Corosync/Heartbeat, Pacemaker, and DRBD-based cluster systems. It does not require any kind of agent or client code on the cluster nodes, instead using SSH.

Release Notes: A cluster configuration editor has been implemented. Handling of LVM on DRBD has been fixed and improved. Resolve-split-brain for DRBD 8.4 has been fixed, and VM autostart is now configurable per cluster host.

No download Website 23 Jan 02:02 uimaFIT 1.3.0


uimaFIT provides Java annotations for describing UIMA components which can be used to directly describe the UIMA components in Java code without the need for traditional UIMA XML descriptors. This greatly simplifies refactoring a component definition (e.g., changing a configuration parameter name). uimaFIT also makes it easy to instantiate UIMA components without using XML descriptor files by providing convenient factory methods. This makes uimaFIT an ideal library for testing UIMA components because the component can be easily instantiated and invoked without requiring a descriptor file to be created first. uimaFIT is very useful in research environments in which programmatic/dynamic instantiation of UIMA pipelines can simplify experimentation. For example, when performing 10-fold cross-validation across a number of experimental conditions, it can be quite laborious to create a different set of descriptor files for each run, or even a script which generates such descriptor files. uimaFIT is type system agnostic and does not depend on (or provide) a specific type system. This project has been superseded by the Apache uimaFIT project.

Release Notes: This release adds external resources like configuration parameters, a convenient logging API, and a new selectBetween() method.

Download Website 23 Jan 02:01 PieDock 1.4.3


PieDock is a task bar in the shape of a pie menu that appears directly around your mouse cursor. It feels a little bit like the Mac OS X dock but in a circular shape.

Release Notes: This release fixes assignment of icons from the window manager for menu items with aliases.

Download Website 23 Jan 02:01 MV3D 0.70


MV3D is a virtual world and multi-player game framework for use with Python. It was designed with scalability in mind and is able to distribute a world across as many servers as needed while dynamically balancing the load. The simulation framework is not specifically slanted towards any one genre of online game or virtual world, and can just as easily be used for a space game as a fantasy setting. Objects on an MV3D server can be simulated using the ODE physics engine for realistic interactions. A single server is able to host thousands of of simulated objects. The client works with both the Ogre3D and Panda3D renderers.

Release Notes: The main focus of this release is usability, and it includes a large amount of work on tools. Panda3D support is now up to par with animation, terrain texture splatting, and skydomes. One of the things the authors are most excited about is the Windows development environment installer. This is an easy installer which will quickly set up any Windows system to develop MV3D.

No download Website 23 Jan 02:00 EmfEngine 1.0.3


The Enhanced MetaFile format (EMF) is the native vector graphics file format on Windows. Qt is a cross-platform application development framework, widely used for the development of GUI programs. Although it provides tools for almost every aspect of software development, Qt doesn't include a straightforward solution for the export of 2D graphics to the EMF format. EmfEngine covers this lack and enables Qt-based applications to easily export graphics to the Enhanced Metafile format.

Release Notes: This release adds the ability to build EmfEngine without STL support enabled in Qt.

Download Website 23 Jan 01:59 Snort


Snort is a network intrusion detection and prevention system. It is the most widely deployed technology of its kind in the world. It performs detection using a variety of methods including rules-based detection, anomaly detection, and heuristic analysis of network traffic. Its rules language is open source and available to the public as well.


Release Notes: This release adds new alerts for HTTP (undefined methods and HTTP 0.9 simple requests), updates the Stream preprocessor in TCP session tracking to avoid re-queuing retransmitted data which was already flushed, and adds various tweaks for PAF flushing and other fixes.

Download Website 23 Jan 01:58 GTKMan 0.5


GTKMan is a simple manual page viewer. Manual pages are viewed by specifying their name and optionally the section they are in, just as with the original man command. The manual pages are displayed in simple text form using the default system monospace font.

Release Notes: This release fixes some GUI issues. Specifically, the toolbar is now a standard GTK toolbar, instead of a collection of widgets placed in a horizontal box.

Download Website 23 Jan 01:48 mkgmap 2179


The mkgmap program converts map data from OpenStreetMap into the Garmin img map format that can be loaded onto Garmin GPS devices. It also combines maps and produces the auxiliary files required to load into map viewing programs.

Release Notes: This version can finally create an address index which works on a GPS device without using any third party software. Also new is a compiler for custom type files and an option to create points of interest along a line. Improvements include creating only a single point of interest from a polygon and even better performance.

Download Website 23 Jan 01:47 hamsterdb Embedded Storage 2.0.0


hamsterdb Embedded Storage is an embedded database engine for C/C++, including wrappers for Java, .NET, and Erlang. It supports in-memory databases, very fast database cursors, "record number" databases, ACID transactions, and duplicate keys. hamsterdb is very fast and highly configurable. It compiles and runs on Unix platforms, Linux, Microsoft Windows, and embedded platforms.

Release Notes: This is the first stable release of the 2.x branch. It features a complete re-implementation of the Transaction support, now allowing an unlimited number of Transactions in parallel. It integrates the Java and .NET APIs. Sources, documentation, and prebuilt libraries for Win32 (including .NET and Java) are available on the (redesigned) webpage.

Download Website 23 Jan 01:39 SemanticScuttle 0.98.4


SemanticScuttle is a social bookmarking tool which experiments with new features, including structured tags and collaborative descriptions of tags. Originally a fork of Scuttle, it has overtaken its ancestor in stability, features, and usability.

Release Notes: This is a major bugfix release.

Download Website 23 Jan 01:33 Usermin 1.500


Usermin is a Web interface that can be used by any user on a UNIX system to easily perform tasks like reading mail, setting up SSH, or configuring mail forwarding. It can be thought of as a simplified version of Webmin designed for use by normal users rather than system administrators.

Release Notes: This release improves Fedora 15+ support and adds minor fixes to the mail reading module.

Download Website 23 Jan 01:33 Usermin For Webmail 1.500


Usermin For Webmail is a modified version of the Usermin package that is pre-configured for use as a Web-based email client. It is designed to work on systems running a local IMAP server, such as Dovecot. By default, users can read email, setup autoresponders and forwarding with Procmail, filter mail with simple rules, change their passwords, and manage folders.

Release Notes: This release improves Fedora 15+ support and adds minor fixes to the mail reading module.

Download Website 23 Jan 01:25 Webmin 1.580


Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any browser that supports tables and forms, you can setup user accounts, internet services, DNS, file sharing and so on.

Release Notes: This release includes German, Catalan, and Norwegian translation updates, better Fedora 15+ support, MySQL backup improvements, systemd support, the ability to edit MySQL connection limits, and much more.

Download Website 23 Jan 01:24 GNU Parallel 20120122 ('Dead SOPA')


GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.

Release Notes: --header now uses the first input line as column names, and you can then use {colname} as a replacement string in the command. (This also works with multiple ":::"s.) --header <regexp> matches a header as a regular expression and repeats the header for each block with --pipe. --resume resumes from the last unfinished job. (This is useful if you stop GNU Parallel and restart it later with the same arguments.) niceload now propagates the exit status correctly. The options -g, -B, -T, -U, -W, and -Y have been retired, as warned six months ago.
