Automatic Drawing Generation is GObject-based library that provides a non-interactive Cairo canvas specifically designed for generating technical drawings.

Release Notes: The ADG Lua bindings, based on lgob, are now available as a separate project (adg-lua). The glue code is automatically generated using GObject introspection. The build system can detect and use GTK+3, if found. GTK+2 is still available, and can be forced at configure time. The rendering of AdgRDim has been enhanced: When the "outside" property is enabled, the leader line will extend beyond the arc to quote for a styleable distance, and the marker will be reversed. The text frontend is selected at configure time. When pango is available, it will be preferred over the cairo toy API.

Download Website 24 Mar 23:13 mirmon 2.5


Many project are mirrored worldwide. Mirmon helps in monitoring these mirrors. In a concise graphic format, mirmon shows each site's history of the last two weeks, making it easy to spot stale or dead mirrors. Mirmon quietly probes a subset of the sites in a given list, writes the results in the "state" file, and generates a Web page with the results. The package includes a Perl module called Mirmon.pm; this makes it easy to write applications related to mirmon.


Release Notes: This release adds minor enhancments.

Download Website 24 Mar 15:34 tvpvrd 4.0.0


tvpvrd is a PVR daemon for Linux that offers the ability to schedule and manage TV recordings using one or multiple installed analogue TV capture cards, e.g. Hauppauge. The daemon is interfaced either through its full command language via a provided command line shell or through a basic (built-in) Web interface provided by the built in micro Web server. The goal is to provide an advanced recording and transcoding (using ffmpeg) server without the need to configure databases or a complex GUI. The server is completely self-contained and uses an XML DB in plain text format to store future recordings.

Release Notes: This is a major UI feature improvement release. The Web-UI is now themeable. The formatting output has been improved to correctly format UTF-8 multi-byte character encodings. The mobile phone UI version has been completely redone. The built-in micro Web server has been made more standards-compliant.

No download No website 24 Mar 15:23 Vendetta Online 1.8.213


Vendetta Online is a multi-platform 3D space-combat MMO for Windows, Mac, Linux/32 and Linux/64. The game permits players to interact in a vast online galaxy; fighting, trading, and mining their way to success. A "twitch" type real-time combat model makes true player skill the deciding factor instead of character advancement. Massive capital-ship battles shake the foundations of the major nations at war, while others struggle to push back the encroachment of the AI "Hives". A no-strings free trial is available.

Release Notes: The ship in third-person camera mode no longer jitters at low frame rates. Joining or creating a group when you have an active mission will now tell you to complete or abort the mission instead of immediately aborting the mission without warning. This release updates Lua to 5.1.5. The HAC explosion effects are now pre-cached so the demo doesn't stutter the first time it explodes.

Download Website 24 Mar 15:22 Cottage 2.1.0.beta-1

Download No website 23 Mar 22:06 LMF - Linked Media Framework 2.0.0


The Linked Media Framework is an easy-to-set-up server application that bundles central Semantic Web technologies to offer advanced services. The Linked Media Framework consists of LMF Core and LMF Modules. The core component of the Linked Media Framework is a Linked Data Server that allows you to expose data following the Linked Data Principles. The Linked Data Server implemented as part of the LMF goes beyond the Linked Data principles by extending them with Linked Data Updates and by integrating management of metadata and content and making both accessible in a uniform way. Its extensions are described in more detail in LinkedMediaPrinciples. In addition to the Linked Data Server, the LMF Core also offers a highly configurable Semantic Search service and a SPARQL endpoint. Setting up and using the Semantic Search component is described in SemanticSearch. Accessing the SPARQL endpoint is described in SPARQLEndpoint. Whereas the extension of the Linked Data principles is already conceptually well-described, work is proceeding on a proper specification and extension of Semantic Search and SPARQL endpoint for Linked Data servers.

Release Notes: This is the first general availability release of the Linked Media Framework. It provides tested versions of all core modules.
