Download Website 02 Dec 18:44 Java Algebra System 2.4.4308


The Java Algebra System (JAS) is an object oriented, type safe, multi-threaded approach to computer algebra. JAS provides a well designed software library using generic types for algebraic computations implemented in the Java programming language. The library can be used as any other Java software package, or it can be used interactively or interpreted through a Jython or JRuby front end. The focus at the moment is on commutative and solvable polynomials, power-series, multivariate polynomial factorization, Gröbner bases, and applications.

Release Notes: This release provides mostly performance optimizations, small improvements, and fixes. The optimizations include combined methods for polynomials like scaleSubtractMultiple(b, g, a, e, S) to compute the expression "b x^g this - a x^e S" in one rush. There is now a first version of a JAS Android App. The app uses its JRuby scripting interface and runs within the Ruby IRB Android app Ruboto.

No download Website 02 Dec 18:38 MP3 Diags 1.1.21


MP3 Diags finds problems in MP3 files and helps the user fix many of them. It looks at both the audio part (VBR info, quality, normalization) and the tags containing track information (ID3). It has a tag editor, which can download album information (including cover art) from MusicBrainz and Discogs, as well as paste data from the clipboard. Track information can also be extracted from a file's name. Another component is the file renamer, which can rename files based on the fields in their ID3V2 tag (artist, track number, album, genre, etc.).

Release Notes: This release fixes a bug that caused a "%s" to be shown instead of information about the files that were about to be processed.

Release Notes: The most noticeable change is that the program has a decent GUI now.

Download No website 02 Dec 18:04 Galera Load Balancer 0.8.1


GLB is a user-space TCP load balancer similar to Pen. It lacks most advanced Pen features, as the aim was to make a user-space TCP proxy that is as fast as possible. It can utilize multiple CPU cores. A list of destinations can be adjusted in runtime. Destination "draining" is supported. It supports "least connected", "round-robin", "random", and "source tracking" balancing policies.

Release Notes: This is a major update. It fixes connection loss when too many connections were attempted at once. It significantly improves performance under certain kinds of load (like sysbench). It adds a max connections option. It implements basic "source tracking" capability. It adds a start/stop service script and is generally much more suitable to be run as a "service".

Download Website 02 Dec 18:03 Cainteoir Text-to-Speech 0.8


Cainteoir Text-to-Speech is a GNOME/GTK+ GUI for the Cainteoir Text-to-Speech Engine. It allows you to listen to your documents or record them for use on the move using any of the eSpeak or MBROLA text-to-speech voices.

Release Notes: Remembers the voice settings (name, pitch, rate, …) between sessions. Updates the timebar after changing voice settings to reflect the new estimated read time. Selecting table of contents entries now takes you to the text instead of the blank line before the text. Maps the new Cainteoir Engine styles structure to text view formatting (GtkTextTag objects) to provide better document rendering.
