Download Website 03 Dec 02:46 MeTA1 1.0.Alpha14.0


MeTA1 is a modularized message transfer agent (MTA) consisting of five (or more) persistent processes, four of which are multi-threaded. A queue manager controls SMTP servers and SMTP clients to receive and send email messages, an address resolver provides lookups in various maps (including DNS) for mail routing, and a main control program starts the other processes and watches over their execution. The queue manager organizes the flow of messages through the system and provides measures to avoid overloading the local or remote systems by implementing a central control instance. It is simple to configure using a C-like syntax and is secure and efficient.

Release Notes: This release enables basic DH support for STARTTLS in the SMTP server and modifies the behavior of the scheduler if a limit for outgoing connections is reached.

    Download Website 03 Dec 02:40 reposurgeon 2.7


    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: This release adds full (read-write) support for darcs, makes the expunge command treat deletes correctly, adds a new "tip" command which deduces whether a commit is associated with a unique branch, and supports writing Subversion repositories (though they don't round-trip).

    Download No website 03 Dec 02:38 RevoBackup 0.16


    RevoBackup is an rsync-based backup script, similar to Dirvish and Rsnapshot but written from scratch to allow a clean codebase and maintainable code. It aims for good reporting and logging capabilities.

    Download Website 02 Dec 19:03 LDAP Account Manager 4.0.RC1


    LDAP Account Manager (LAM) is a web frontend for managing entries (e.g. users, groups, DHCP settings) stored in an LDAP directory. LAM was designed to make LDAP management as easy as possible for the user. It abstracts from the technical details of LDAP and allows persons without technical background to manage LDAP entries. If needed, power users may still directly edit LDAP entries via the integrated LDAP browser.

    Release Notes: All account profiles and PDF structures are now saved separately for each server profile. LAM Pro supports QMail, MIT Kerberos, and custom fields for the admin interface. Please note that this is a test version.

    Download Website 02 Dec 19:02 Foswiki 1.1.6


    Foswiki is wiki software, supporting the editing of Web pages in an ordinary Web browser by end users.

    Download Website 02 Dec 18:57 jug 0.9.3


    Jug is a task-based parallelism framework. Jug allows you to write code that is broken up into tasks and run different tasks on different processors. It uses the filesystem to communicate between processes and works correctly over NFS, so you can coordinate processes on different machines. Jug is a pure Python implementation and should work on any platform that can run Python.

    Release Notes: This version fixes a few bugs with caching of status and CompoundTasks. Jug now works correctly on new versions of Python (with the random hash fix). This version adds --cache --clear suboption to status and regular expression support to invalidate.

    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.

    Cube Trains is a puzzle game where you build elevated railways in a city. It features 3D puzzles, unlimited undo/redo, and smart placement of pieces. The non-linear level graph means you don't have to beat a level before unlocking the next one. The game comes with a built-in level editor, so you can build and share your own corners of the city.

    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.

    Download No website 02 Dec 18:02 genpuppet 1.9


    genpuppet is a script to automatically generate a puppet manifest based on a series of user inputs. Think of it as a kernel "make config" for puppet. With genpuppet, the most frequently used resources are prompted for so one can quickly generate a working manifest without having to concentrate on syntax and spacing.

    Release Notes: There are major changes to support more resources with less code. This release handles the following puppet resource types: file, service, package, exec, computer, cron, group, host, mailalias, mount, notify, ssh_authorized_keys, sshkey, and user. A configuration file is used to specify resource type and its parameters, and it is easily extensible.
