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 types 'pollData', 'inetListener', and 'socketAddress' were moved from "socket.s7i" to "poll.s7i", "listener.s7i", and "sockbase.s7i" respectively. The functions supported by 'pollData' were changed and improved. The file "pol_dos.c" was added. The "ftpserv.sd7" example was improved to take the IP address for the "PASV" response from the control socket. The console driver "con_win.c" was improved, such that keypressed recognizes control-C as normal keyboard input. The function 'socGets' was improved to avoid realloc(), when the string read is shorter than requested.

No download Website 01 Jan 21:56 Fotoxx 12.01


Fotoxx navigates an image collection using a thumbnail browser to choose images to view or edit. Edit functions include brightness, contrast, color, gamma, white balance, tone mapping, red eyes, sharpen, blur, noise suppression, smart erase, trim (crop), resize, rotate, add text, bend/warp, many art effects, HDR, HDF, stack, and panorama. Edit functions use movable curves and sliders. Feedback is live using the whole image. RAW files can be edited and saved with deep color. Areas or objects can be selected using freehand draw, follow edge, and tone matching. Selections can be edited in place with adjustable blending. They can also be cut and pasted into other images. Any metadata can be edited, reported, and searched (filenames, tags, dates, geotags, comments, captions, ratings, etc.). Collections (arbitrary subsets) can be defined and viewed. Batch functions are available for rename, resize/export, RAW conversion, and more.

Release Notes: A new capability was added to search for and report any image metadata (EXIF, IPTC, etc.). Thumbnail images are shown with metadata text. Indexing new photos is 2x faster (up to 1000/minute). The main window can be more easily zoomed and panned during a dialog that is also using the mouse. You can zoom in/out using the mouse wheel. The mouse pointer tracks the zoom center to the middle of the window. The zoom ratio is configurable: 1-4 zooms for each 2x increase. Print color adjustments can be saved to a file for re-use. Three minor bugs were fixed.

Download Website 01 Jan 21:53 Mandos 1.5.1


The Mandos system allows computers to have encrypted root file systems and at the same time be capable of remote or unattended reboots. The computers run a small client program in the initial RAM disk environment which will communicate with a server over a network. All network communication is encrypted using TLS. The clients are identified by the server using an OpenPGP key that is unique to each client. The server sends the clients an encrypted password. The encrypted password is decrypted by the clients using the same OpenPGP key, and the password is then used to unlock the root file system.


Release Notes: This version includes the intro(8mandos) manual page, which was missing since the migration from the README file in version 1.4.0.
