No download No website 30 Dec 22:23 GeoToad 3.16.3


GeoToad is a geocaching query tool to help speed up the boring part of geocaching: choosing the cache and collecting the data. It allows you to generate any kind of complex query you want, and the program will go and poll the Geocaching query, grab the data, and output it to any format you want. The Geocache info can be synced straight to your GPS, iPod, PDA, or cell phone in over 20 different formats.

Release Notes: After some changes to the server, parsing of cache logs no longer worked. This bugfix release cures the issue, and irons out some minor quirks (log-less caches and whole countries).

Download Website 30 Dec 19:36 CVSps 3.3


CVSps collect changesets from CVS repositories. It can be used either by humans to inspect changesets or as an exporter from CVS to other version control systems - it can be told to emit a fast-export stream to standard output. The code has been end-of-lifed and using cvs-fast-export instead is recommended.

Release Notes: There's a new -A option that does author-name mapping in the expected way. There's a new -R option that writes out a revision map. cvsps run from within a repository directory will do the right thing. A bug that could garble translations of branchy repositories has been fixed.

Download Website 30 Dec 19:34 LanguageTool 2.0


LanguageTool is a style and grammar checker that currently supports English, Polish, German, French, Dutch, and other languages to a different degree. It scans the words and their part-of-speech tags for occurrences of error patterns, which are defined in an XML file. More powerful error rules can be written in Java.

Release Notes: Many updates for the error detection rules for English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Breton, Catalan, Esperanto, and Ukrainian have been added. The embedded HTTP server can now be started from the context menu if LanguageTool is running in the system tray. Some small bugs have been fixed.

Download Website 30 Dec 19:34 reposurgeon 2.11


A tool for editing version-control repository history, reposurgeon enables risky operations that version-control systems don't want to let you do, such as editing past comments and metadata and removing commits. It works with any version control system that can export and import git fast-import streams, including git, hg, bzr, CVS, and RCS. It can also read Subversion dump files directly, and can thus be used to script production of very high-quality conversions from Subversion to any supported DVCS.

Release Notes: Support for reading RCS repositories.

Download Website 30 Dec 19:33 giflib 5.0.3


giflib is a library for rendering and generating GIF image files. This is the GIF service code in C used for over two decades by graphics applications, Web browsers, game consoles, ATMs, and pretty much anything else that throws pixels on a display. It is simple, stable, and bulletproof.

Release Notes: A trivial fix to manual page installation.

No download Website 30 Dec 19:32 Toorox 01.2013 "KDE"


Toorox is a Linux live DVD based on Gentoo which starts as bootable media using KNOPPIX technology. It is designed for ease of use, with a simple control center and a hard disk installer.

Download Website 30 Dec 19:29 Movgrab 1.1.15


Movgrab is a command-line movie downloader for sites like YouTube. It has no dependencies; everything that's needed should be there in the tar.gz package. Movgrab can connect through an HTTP proxy, can output the download to stdout for piping into another program, and can fork into the background to free up the console. When forked into the background, its progress can still be seen in a ps list.

Release Notes: This release adds a basic 'ETA' meter (bounces around a lot depending on download speed). It fixes 'dailymotion' titles/filenames. It adds support for 'google video search' URLs.

Download Website 30 Dec 19:28 Kernel Mode Linux 3.7_001


Kernel Mode Linux is a technology which enables the execution of user programs in a kernel mode. In Kernel Mode Linux, user programs can access kernel address space directly. Unlike kernel modules, user programs are executed as ordinary processes (except for their privilege level), so scheduling and paging are performed as usual. Although it seems dangerous, the safety of the kernel can be ensured through such methods as static type checking, software fault isolation, and so forth.

Release Notes: This release has been merged with the 3.7 Linux kernel.

No download Website 30 Dec 19:14 MyMediaLite 3.06


MyMediaLite is a lightweight, multi-purpose library of recommender system algorithms. It addresses the two most common scenarios in collaborative filtering: rating prediction (e.g. on a scale of 1 to 5 stars), and item prediction from implicit feedback (e.g. from clicks or purchase actions). It contains dozens of recommender engines, including state-of-the-art matrix factorization methods. It also supports real-time updates to the recommender engines, storing engines to disk and reloading them again, and several evaluation measures to compare the accuracy of different recommender system methods.

Download Website 30 Dec 19:09 Dada Mail 6.0.0


Dada Mail can help you manage a mailing list, offers complete support for safe, closed-loop opt-in subscriptions, sends out mass mailings, keeps an archive of your messages, and allows you to share your messages in many ways. It runs on your Web hosting account and you interact with it through your Web browser, making it available anywhere you have a connection to the Internet. You do not have to rely on a third-party list management system with costly monthly fees. It is rich with features, but tries to keep it simple. It is designed to favor flexibility, extensibility, and ease-of-use over core speed or extremely flashy but hard-to-use features. It is designed to be installed, set up, and understood by regular people who have Web sites, but has enough advanced features to entice more proficient users. If you've ever installed a bulletin board or blog software, you should be able to install Dada Mail without too many problems. Dada Mail can scale. You can install Dada Mail on most any basic hosting account and start sending out messages. If your mailing list grows large, you can switch to sending with a more powerful third-party system, like Amazon SES, where there's potentially no limit on the number of emails you may send, all without having to change mailing list management systems or your hosting.

Release Notes: This release features better email analytics, allowing you to discover information by campaign and IP address, as well as more interactive charts and graphs. There's better handling of bounced messages, with new, clearer rules; a complete migration from Protototype to jQuery; a more sophisticated Web-based installer that can move over commonly set global configurations from previous installations; and the ability to easily create discussion mailing lists using email forwarding instead of using a POP3 address, making performance and email delivery of discussion lists much quicker.

Download Website 30 Dec 19:00 Podget 0.6.9

It features support for downloading podcasts from RSS and XML feeds, for sorting the podcasts into folders and categories, for importing podcast URLs from iTunes PCAST files and OPML lists, automatic M3U and ASX playlist creation, and automatic cleanup of old podcasts. It also features automatic UTF-16 conversion for podcasts hosted on Windows servers and includes the ability to handle authentication for premium podcasts.

Release Notes: Two relatively small updates requested by users: an update to filename_formatfix to correct for "?referrer=rss" being added to all filenames downloaded from Vimcasts.org; and an update to use mktemp to create a temporary file for playlist sorting. If mktemp is not available, the script falls back to trying to use tempfile.
