No download Website 30 Mar 12:42 Webconverger 12.1


Webconverger is a Live Web kiosk Linux distribution for public places. It is designed to get you on the Web easily without compromising your privacy.

Release Notes: This release adds a new configuration service to help users easily set up the software to their desired homepage. It marks a technical innovation whereby the binary rootfs is entirely within git, paving the way for future upgrades to be performed without large inefficient package downloads.

Download Website 30 Mar 12:41 OpenFOAM 2.1.0


The OpenFOAM (Open Field Operation and Manipulation) CFD toolbox can simulate anything from complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions, turbulence, and heat transfer, to solid dynamics, electromagnetics, and the pricing of financial options. It uses finite volume numerics to solve systems of partial differential equations ascribed on any 3D unstructured mesh of polyhedral cells. The fluid flow solvers are developed within a robust, implicit, pressure-velocity, iterative solution framework, although alternative techniques are applied to other continuum mechanics solvers.

Release Notes: This release adds a completely new, fully-parallelized implementation of the arbitrary mesh interface, a new solver for two compressible fluid phases where one phase is dispersed, a new Euler-Euler solver which can simulate any number of incompressible phases which may be dispersed or "VoF"-resolved, an incompressible Navier-Stokes solver which approximates waves through a wave height field, and a turbulence model which can simulate flow with a boundary layer which undergoes a transition from laminar to turbulent flow.

Download Website 30 Mar 12:35 CCruncher 1.9


CCruncher is a project for quantifying portfolio credit risk using the copula approach. It is a framework consisting of two elements: a technical document that explains the theory, and a software program that implements it. CCruncher evaluates the portfolio credit risk by sampling the portfolio loss distribution and computing the Expected Loss (EL), Value at Risk (VaR), and Expected Shortfall (ES) statistics. The portfolio losses are obtained simulating the default times of obligors and simulating the EADs and LGDs of their assets.

Release Notes: This release adds support for macros (useful for sensitivity analysis), solves the precision problem in the survival functions, modifies the t-Student CDF speedup algorithm, and updates the technical document.

Download No website 30 Mar 12:34 Trusion 0.1


Trusion is a physical intrusion system that uses users' Webcams to detect motion, which serves as an indicator to start recording video. Optionally, users can choose to have the program upload the videos to an FTP server in the unfortunate event your computer gets stolen or the perpetrator manages to delete the user's local video files. This is a very new project that is enthusiastically welcoming new contributors and their ideas. This project was build using Qt and OpenCV.

Release Notes: This test version is the first distributable version of Trusion. So far, it's been run only on the machine of the sole developer, so feedback is needed from other users.

Download Website 30 Mar 12:32 FileBot 2.61


FileBot is a tool for renaming movies, TV shows, or Anime, and for downloading subtitles. It's smart, streamlined for simplicity, and just works. It includes commandline interface for automation.


Release Notes: This minor update adds support for multi-episode files and some commandline features.

Download Website 30 Mar 12:31 ScalaBLAST 2.0


ScalaBLAST is a high-performance multiprocessor implementation of the NCBI BLAST library. It supports all 5 primary program types (blastn, blastp, tblastn, tblastx, and blastx) and several output formats (pairwise, tabular, and XML). It will run on most multiprocessor systems which have MPI installed, and can run over a wide variety of interconnects, including infiniband, quadrics, and ethernet. It is designed to run a large number of queries against either large or small databases. It parallelizes the BLAST calculations by dynamically scheduling them across processors using a fault-resilient scheme.

Release Notes: This release adds assorted enhancements and bugfixes.

Overture is an object-oriented code framework for solving partial differential equations. It provides a portable, flexible software development environment for applications that involve the simulation of physical processes in complex moving geometry. Overture is designed for solving problems on a structured grid or a collection of structured grids. In particular, it can use curvilinear grids, adaptive mesh refinement, and the composite overlapping grid method to represent problems involving complex domains with moving components.

Release Notes: The new InterpolatePointsOnAGrid class can be used to interpolate a set of points in space from a composite grid function. There is a new "exponential to linear" stretching option. Extensive bugfixes have been applied.

Download Website 30 Mar 12:15 libfiu 0.90


libfiu is a C library for fault injection. It provides functions to mark "points of failure" inside your code (the "core API"), and functions to enable/disable the failure of those points (the "control API"). The core API is used inside the code on which you want to perform failure injection. The control API is used inside the testing code in order to control the injection of failures.

Release Notes: This release adds new ways of adding points of failure depending on what functions are on the stack, fixes many minor bugs, and improves documentation.
