Download Website 24 Nov 00:25 morituri 0.1.3


morituri is a CD ripper that aims for accuracy over speed. Its features are modeled to compare with Exact Audio Copy on Windows.

Currently, it only supports lossless encoding and only has a command line client.

Release Notes: This release shortens really long filenames if needed, supports multi-disc ripping with musicbrainz NGS, adds %y for the release year in templates, adds a "rip cd rip --release-id" option to select the exact release, allows track and disc templates to create files in different directories, works out relative paths from cue/m3u files to audio files, and updates the mp3vbr profile.

Download Website 24 Nov 00:23 libquickmail 0.1.11


libquickmail is a library intended to give C/C++ developers a quick and easy way to send email from their applications.

Release Notes: This release supports bodies with a specified MIME type and even multiple alternative bodies (e.g., text/plain and text/html; the mail client will pick the best one which it supports).

Download No website 24 Nov 00:22 Darning 0.05.6


Darning is a tool for managing a series or sequence of patches to a software source tree, in the same vein as quilt but with extended functionality. It supports advanced patch concepts such as file mode changes and copying/renaming files. The GUI is the primary interface and the most complete, but a command line interface is also provided with fewer features at this stage.


Release Notes: This release fixes assertion errors triggered during patch resolution and display of patch details for unapplied patches.

Download Website 24 Nov 00:21 pHash 0.9.5


pHash is an implementation of various perceptual hashing algorithms. A perceptual hash is a fingerprint of a multimedia file derived from various features from its content. Unlike cryptographic hash functions that rely on the avalanche effect of small changes in input leading to drastic changes in the output, perceptual hashes are "close" to one another if the features are similar. Potential applications include copyright protection, similarity searches for media files, or even digital forensics.

Release Notes: This release fixes compilation errors when using the deprecated FFmpeg API.

Download Website 24 Nov 00:20 GNU ddrescue 1.17-pre1


GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disk, CD-ROM, etc.) to another, trying to rescue the good parts first in case of read errors. GNU ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue logfiles, shows logfile contents, converts logfiles to/from other formats, compares logfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a logfile if the rescue is done.


Release Notes: The option "--sector-size" has been added as a synonym of "--block-size". Ddrescue now terminates with an error if an unexpected EOF would discard any successfully read data, and automatically adjusts the logfile to shrinking input devices, like CD-ROMs written in TAO mode. A bug has been fixed which prevented status updating after the system clock had been put back. Control-C no longer overwrites status messages. Generate mode no longer requires the "--force" option. The new chapter "Using ddrescue safely" has been added to the manual.

Download Website 24 Nov 00:19 pyPEG 2.8.0


pyPEG is a quick and easy solution for creating a parser in Python programs. pyPEG uses a PEG language in Python data structures to parse, so it can be used dynamically to parse nearly every context free language. The output is a plain Python data structure called pyAST, or, as an alternative, XML.

Release Notes: This release fixes a bug with initializing objects.

Download Website 24 Nov 00:19 zrep 1.0


zrep provides an easy-to-use program to manage zfs filesystem replication and failover. No configuration files are required. The program is developed under Solaris, but may work with any up to date zfs implementation. The executable is a single script. Initialization does a full data copy, but subsequent syncs are incrementals. It uses internal locking to make sure there is no danger of overlap if you just shove it in cron to run every minute. Design target is more "near-time replication", since the sync can be run every minute or more. However, it could conceivably be used for "backup" purposes as well.

Release Notes: This release adds capability for "pull" updates (zrep refresh), so that it is possible to use zrep in a central backup server capacity. This release also makes invocation of Perl more flexible, to be kinder to non-Solaris OSes.

No download Website 24 Nov 00:17 PeaZip 4.8


PeaZip is a cross-platform file archiver utility that provides a unified portable GUI for many open source technologies like 7-Zip, FreeArc, PAQ, UPX, etc. Creates 7Z, ARC, BZ2, GZ, *PAQ, PEA, QUAD/BALZ, TAR, UPX, WIM, XZ, and ZIP files. It extracts more than 150 archive types: ACE, ARJ, CAB, DMG, ISO, LHA, RAR, UDF, ZIPX, and more. Features of PeaZip include extracting, creating, and converting multiple archives at once, creating self-extracting archives, split/join files, strong encryption with two factor authentication, an encrypted password manager, secure deletion, find duplicate files, calculate hashes, and export job definitions as scripts.

Release Notes: This release adds an improved file manager, new graphic file management features, an alphabetically-sorted Functions sidebar, and improved mail functions integration.
