No download Website 22 Dec 04:28 Seed7 2012-12-21


Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.

Release Notes: The Seed7 compiler has been improved to support constant pixmaps and to omit array constant declarations for unused arrays. Result variables have been renamed in various libraries and example programs. The functions getPixel and imagePixmap have been added or improved. Pictures of a grating and a vampire have been added to pic16.s7i and pic32.s7i. The function getValue has been overloaded for PRIMITIVE_WINDOW values in the library progs.s7i. Documention comments have been added to the operators & and <& in the library string.s7i. A check for the window close button has been added to the function gkbKeyPressed in drw_win.c.

Release Notes: This release adds a few small enhancements based on feedback from real-life use.

Download Website 22 Dec 04:27 fwsnort 1.6.3


fwsnort translates snort rules into an equivalent iptables ruleset. By making use of the iptables string match module, fwsnort can detect application layer signatures which exist in many snort rules. fwsnort adds a --hex-string option to iptables, which allows snort rules that contain hex characters to be input directly into iptables rulesets without modification. In addition, fwsnort makes use of the IPTables::Parse Perl module in order to (optionally) restrict the snort rule translation to only those rules that specify traffic that could potentially be allowed through an existing iptables policy.

Release Notes: This release adds a new comprehensive test suite, a faster iptables/ip6tables capabilities testing routine, and fixes for hex string encoding for some Snort content matches with syntax-busting characters.

Download Website 22 Dec 04:16 Zsh 5.0.2

Release Notes: This release mostly fixes bugs, with some minor additions noted in the NEWS file. If you were waiting for 5.0.1, you haven't missed it. A significant bug turned up at the last minute, so it wasn't announced, and 5.0.2 replaces it.

No download No website 22 Dec 04:11 uma::bson 2.2


uma::bson is a DOM-style C++ API for reading/writing BSON data. Unlike the MongoDB C++ API, which exposes a read-only interface with a separate interface for creating a BSON representation, this API allows reading/writing on the existing data. The API is designed primarily for serialising/deserialising BSON data to/from streams (files, socket connections, etc.).

Release Notes: This release implements a simple callback-based ODM (Object-Document mapping) framework. Client applications can create model objects which store data as uma::bson::Value instances while extending from the new uma::bson::Object class. The unit test suite has been expanded to include the ODM test suite.

Its flexibility allows any application to describe its configuration options and easily offer a GUI to the end user.


Release Notes: It is now possible to use inishell to edit an already-existing ini file. Unknown keys are preserved as well as user comments. The layout has been improved, and offers a more consistent appearance. It is also now possible to group keys in a frame in order to visually bring related keys together. All known bugs have been fixed.
