No download Website 26 Oct 23:56 MyJSQLView 3.40


MyJSQLView provides an easy-to-use Java based GUI frontend for viewing, adding, editing, or deleting data in the Apache Derby, H2, HSQL, Microsoft SQL, MSAccess, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and SQLite databases. A query frame allows the building of complex SQL statements and SQL Query Bucket for saving such. The application allows easy sorting, searching, and import/export of table data. A plug-in framework allows inclusion of tools to visually build queries, profiles, and plot data for analysis.

Release Notes: This release marks a major reorganizational effort regarding the source code and plugin management. Though the public will notice little with regard to source subpackaging, the plugin management changes bring the ability to load plugins from remote locations. Plugin repositories can now be created by individuals or organizations which wish to provide custom plugins on the basis of a realtime network loading capability. In that regard, the MyJSQLView project has added to its own public repository a free Open Source SQL query builder plugin.

Download Website 26 Oct 23:54 Octave daemon 1.0.1


Octave daemon is a network daemon for GNU Octave, implemented in PHP. The package also contains a PHP client for connecting to the daemon. Native PHP applications can also use the connector class to run ad hoc Octave instances, circumventing the daemon altogether (which can be useful for development or small projects).


Release Notes: A bug has been fixed (now observing the number of instances in the configuration), and a small improvement has been made (empirically determining a more appropriate value for the main daemon run() delay.)

Download Website 26 Oct 23:53 GPM 1.20.7


GPM (General Purpose Mouse) is a mouse server for the console and xterm, with sample clients included (emacs, etc).

Release Notes: This release adds a fix to prevent inclusion of unwanted binary data, adds many cleanups, fixes hyphen-used-as-minus-sign issues in manpages, prevents building a static libgpm by default, and requires autogen.sh to create a setup version in autoconf.

Download Website 26 Oct 23:52 Urd 1.6.1


Urd is a Web-based Usenet binary download manager. It stores the newsgroup information in a MySQL database and aggregates the articles into sets of a single download (e.g. one album or movie). The Web interface can be used to search with regular expressions. It uses its own downloading daemon that has support for scheduling downloads and updating databases. URD can also download directly from NZB files and even create NZB files. Further features include custom scripts, multiple languages, a template based Web interface, support for multiple servers, automatic par2 and unrar support, and an intuitive user interface.

Release Notes: This release fixes an annoying bug.

No download Website 26 Oct 23:51 Bolt (OCaml) 1.4


Bolt is a logging tool for the Objective Caml language.

Release Notes: This release adds a new layout ("minimal", printing only the message), and two new outputs ("bell" writing the bell character on standard output, and "say" using the text-to-speech engine of Mac OS X). The configuration file format now accepts "&&" and "||" operators in filters. The concept of a "mode" is introduced, allowing control of when data is actually written to output. Support for Pajé as been updated (for version 1.2.3), and Growl can now be used under Windows. Five bugs (including a critical one and a major one) have also been fixed.

Download Website 26 Oct 23:49 4MLinux 4.1 Media Edition

Download Website 26 Oct 21:38 moneyGuru 2.6.1


moneyGuru is a personal finance management application. It allows you to evaluate your financial situation so that you can make informed (and thus better) decisions. Most finance applications have the same goal, but moneyGuru's difference is in the way it achieves it. Rather than having reports which you have to configure (or find out which pre-configured report is the right one), your important financial data (net worth, profit) is constantly up-to-date and "in your face". This allows you to constantly make informed decision rather than doing so periodically.

Release Notes: This release fixes a crash on quit where charts would try to draw themselves after having been freed.

Download Website 26 Oct 21:38 Kid3 2.2


Kid3 tagger can edit the ID3v1 tags and all ID3v2 frames in MP3 files and the tags in Ogg/Vorbis and FLAC files in an efficient way. It is easy to convert between ID3v1 and ID3v2, set the tags of multiple files to the same values and generate the tags from the file name or vice versa. Import is possible from freedb.org, MusicBrainz, and other sources of track data.

Release Notes: The Discogs import has been rewritten to use the Discogs API 2.0. AcoustID audio fingerprint import can now also use GStreamer for decoding. This release also includes bugfixes and usability improvements.

Download Website 26 Oct 21:37 bigloo 3.9a


Bigloo is an implementation of the Scheme programming language. It relies on an optimizing compiler from Scheme to C. Bigloo enables connections between Scheme code and C code.

Release Notes: Closure unboxing optimization, new timed I/Os, and API optimizations (ALSA, FLAC, and mpg123).

Download No website 26 Oct 21:37 VPLG 2012_10_11


Visualization of Protein Ligand Graphs (VPLG) uses a graph-based model to describe the structure of proteins on the super-secondary structure level. A protein-ligand graph is computed from the atomic coordinates in a PDB file and the secondary structure assignments of the DSSP algorithm. In this graph, vertices represent secondary structure elements (SSEs, usually alpha helices and beta strands) or ligand molecules, while the edges model contacts and relative orientations between them. The graphs can be visualized, written to a database, and saved in a text-based file format.

Release Notes: Folding graphs, i.e. connected components of protein ligand graphs, can now also be exported in all formats. You can also configure VPLG to add metadata (e.g. species) to exported graphs in comments (for export formats that support comments but no graph metadata).

Download Website 26 Oct 21:36 Airtime 2.2


Airtime lets you take total control of your radio station via the Web with intelligent archive management, powerful search, an easy playlist builder, a simple scheduling calendar, and rock-solid automated playout. Features include fades, cues, playlists, a programme calendar, Icecast, Shoutcast, and Soundcloud integration, DJ and station manager roles, JQuery widgets, Liquidsoap playout, and a record and rebroadcast functionality. Powerful media archive features 'watch' folders to allow stations to magically synchronize files, auto-import files, and has multiple directory support. Users can interact with it through any Web browser. It comes with an 'easy install' package.


Release Notes: This release has smart playlists and new live assist modes. Users can now configure and rebroadcast remote live input streams from the Web, DJ programs, or smartphone applications used by broadcast journalists. Additionally, they can schedule these streams in the calendar, or schedule a ‘live’ show that records from the computer’s line-in. Improvements to the library management improve archive searching and programming, allowing the professionals to take advantage of new FLAC, WAV, AAC, and ReplayGain support.

No download No website 26 Oct 21:35 jOOQ 2.6.0


jOOQ effectively combines complex SQL, type safety, source code generation, active records, stored procedures, advanced data types, and Java in a fluent, intuitive DSL.

Release Notes: This release has a new main feature: the type-safe support for row value expressions also known as tuples, up to a degree of 8. The API is formed in a similar way as pre-existing tuple support in languages like C# or Scala. Scala integration has also been improved through the new jOOQ-Scala module, which provides some useful implicit defs for operator overloading. Future versions of jOOQ-Scala may experiment with Scala 2.10's Macros.

Download Website 26 Oct 21:34 WordPress 3.5-beta2


WordPress is a state-of-the-art, semantic, personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, Web standards, and usability. It was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architected personal publishing system. While primarily geared towards functioning as a Weblog, WordPress is also a flexible CMS capable of managing many types of Web sites. In addition to the basic blog functions, it also has an integrated link manager, categories, tags, custom taxonomies, file attachments, XFN support, support for stand-alone pages, Atom and RSS feeds for both content and comments, blogging API support (Atom Publishing Protocol, Blogger, MetaWeblog, and Movable Type APIs), spam blocking features, advanced cruft-free URL generation, a flexible theme system, and an advanced plugin API.

No download No website 26 Oct 21:24 Big Faceless PDF Viewer 2.12


The Big Faceless Java PDF Viewer is a Swing component that can display PDF documents. It is intended for developers who don't require the full API. The PDF Viewer can be installed as an applet, an application, via Java Web Start, or embedded in a Swing application. Printing, saving, text search, forms, digital signatures, and annotations are some of the many features available. The viewer can be tailored to include just the features you need, and is a cost-effective solution for those needing the features of Adobe Acrobat on a Java platform.

Release Notes: Viewer: changing or closing a PDF in a DocumentPanel may now call PDF.close(). This will immediately free resources for the PDF (allowing the file to be deleted on Windows), but if anyone is still holding a link to the PDF object after its DocumentPanel has closed, it will cause problems. Viewer: PagePanel has been completely refactored to better handle interruptions and fix a number of special case rendering errors. Note that this release does not allow the page to be changed once set. Viewer: Windows L&F now has the Cancel button on the right (the Windows way).

The Extended Edition also includes a PDF reader for importing and editing, along with FDF support, verification for digital signatures and text extraction. Both variations offer full Unicode support, encryption, embedded TrueType and Type1 fonts, barcodes, hyperlinks, and spot and calibrated color.

Release Notes: This release makes Text Extraction only decode images if they're asked for (which should speed extraction by a large factor for some documents), gives Text Extraction hooks to "recode" an incorrectly-encoded font (although the mapping must be created manually), reverts a change to LayoutBox from 2.11.22 relating to trailing spaces on a line, improves color fidelity (particularly relating to shading patterns), and removes an unnecessary restriction on setting ModDate and CreationDate in PDF (these are still set automatically, but it's now possible to override them).
