Download Website 06 Apr 22:28 Lua 5.2.1 work1


Lua is a programming language originally designed for extending applications, but also frequently used as a general-purpose, stand-alone language. It combines simple procedural syntax (similar to Pascal) with powerful data description constructs based on associative arrays and extensible semantics. It is dynamically typed, interpreted from bytecodes, and has automatic memory management, making it ideal for configuration, scripting, and rapid prototyping. It is implemented as a small library of C functions, written in ANSI C, and compiles unmodified in all known platforms. The implementation goals are simplicity, efficiency, portability, and low embedding cost. It has been used on games such as World of Warcraft, FarCry and Angry Birds, among others.

Release Notes: This release adds better handling of string collisions based on a random seed. This work version is meant to let the community assess the usefulness and the effectiveness of this experimental feature.

Download Website 06 Apr 22:27 libcaca 0.99.beta18


The libcaca library is a graphics library that outputs text instead of pixels, so that it can work on older video cards or text terminals. It is not unlike the famous AAlib library except it supports colour output.

Release Notes: This stability release includes two years worth of bugfixes. Python bindings have been fully redesigned.

No download Website 06 Apr 22:26 DBIx::Perlish 0.59


The DBIx::Perlish module provides the ability to work with databases supported by the DBI module using Perl's own syntax for the four most common operations: SELECT, UPDATE, DELETE, and INSERT. By using DBIx::Perlish, you can write most of your database queries using a domain-specific language with Perl syntax. However, the module is not intended to replace all use of SQL in your program. The DBIx::Perlish module quite intentionally neither implements nor cares about database administration tasks like schema design and management.

Release Notes: This release adds fixes for Perl 5.15.

Download Website 06 Apr 22:25 tntdb 1.2


Tntdb is a c++-class-library for database access. It implements a database-independent layer, which loads the actual driver dynamically when a connection is made. The classes use automatic resource management with reference counts. Resources are freed when the classes go out of scope. Error handling is done with exceptions (derived from std::exception). There are STL-like iterators for result sets and rows, and also the cursor is an STL-like iterator. It is written in standard C++ with Linux. Drivers for PostgreSQL, sqlite3, MySQL, and Oracle are available.

Release Notes: This release is the result of two years of improvements. A new replication driver allows applications to do replication without database support, even between different database systems. The decimal class has been rewritten and given unittests. The new RowReader-class makes code more readable when many columns are read from a result row. A new class BlobStream implements a std::istream interface to blobs.

Download Website 06 Apr 22:23 cxxtools 2.1


cxxtools is a library of unrelated but useful C++ classes. It contains an argument parser, a base-64 encoder/decoder, a C++ interface to iconv, md5-stream for easy MD5 calculation, threading classes, socket classes, a dynamic exception-safe buffer, a wrapper for dlopen/dlsym, a pool template (e.g. for a connection pool in a multi-threaded application), query_params, and a class for easy parsing of CGI parameters (GET and POST) in a CGI program.

Release Notes: This release adds json and jsonrpc to cxxtools, as well as a fast binary rpc server and client. Both are based on the improved serialization framework of cxxtools. The json and binary formats can be used as a storage format. Serialization and deserialization of csv is now possible. The unicode string as a specialization of std::basic_string has been give a major rewrite with short string optimization.

Download Website 06 Apr 17:29 X File Explorer 1.32.5


X File Explorer (Xfe) is a filemanager for X. It is based on the popular, but discontinued, X Win Commander. Xfe is desktop independent and is written with the C++ Fox Toolkit. It looks similar to Windows Commander or MS-Explorer, and is very fast and simple. It features file associations, the ability to mount/umount devices, a directory tree for quickly changing directories, the ability to change file attributes, automatic registry saving, the ability to view/create/extract compressed archives, and much more.

Release Notes: This release fixes several minor bugs and updates the Greek translation.

Download Website 06 Apr 17:29 TXR 64


TXR is a new data munging language. TXR's special pattern language provides template-based matching of entire documents or large sections of documents. It also contains a language for functional and imperative programming. It is written in C and takes the form of a utility that is portable to Unix-like platforms and Windows.

Release Notes: An generational garbage collector has been implemented. There are two small improvements in the pattern language and caching optimizations in hash tables.

Download Website 06 Apr 17:28 Tntnet 2.1


Tntnet is a Web application server for generating Web applications in C++. HTML pages with some additional tags for inclusion of C++ code are compiled into shared libraries and served from tntnet. It resembles PHP, JSP, or Mason, but the programming language used is C++, and the pages are compiled into native code before serving. Tntnet is fully multithreaded and supports HTTP keep-alive for best performance. Its dynamic pages are faster than static pages with other Web servers, while creating Web applications is simple.

Release Notes: This is the result of another two years of small improvements and optimizations. Tntnet is a little faster and more standard-compliant.

Download Website 06 Apr 17:28 Lhasa v0.0.1


Lhasa is a Free Software replacement for the Unix LHA tool, for decompressing .lzh (LHA/LHarc) and .lzs (LArc) archives. The backend for the tool is a library, so it can be reused for other purposes. Lhasa aims to be compatible with as many types of lzh/lzs archives as possible. It also aims to generate the same output as the (non-free) Unix LHA tool, so it will act as a drop-in free replacement.

Release Notes: This is the first beta release of Lhasa. It is capable of decompressing most LHA archives, although it is not yet capable of compressing archives.

Download Website 06 Apr 17:28 Aspose.Slides for Java 2.9.0


Aspose.Slides for Java is a Java component for manipulating PowerPoint presentations. It doesn't require PowerPoint and supports export to PDF, embedding and linking of audio and video frames, slide cloning, thumbnail generation, and presentation features, the ability to extract text from a presentation, and more.

Release Notes: This release is compliant with JDK 1.5 and adds support for picture bullets in PPTX presentations. However, this is mainly a maintenance release which fixes a number of issues with presentation access, table rendering, and missing border lines related to saved and cloned presentations. The issue with table borders failing to render in saved or cloned presentations has also been resolved. This release includes many improved features.

Download Website 06 Apr 17:22 gpsd 3.4


gpsd is a daemon that listens to a GPS or Loran receiver and translates the positional data into a simplified format that can be more easily used by other programs, like chart plotters. The package comes with a sample client that plots the location of the currently visible GPS satellites (if available) and a speedometer. It can also use DGPS/ip.

Release Notes: This release doesn't fail when chrpath is unavailable; it falls back to static linking. This helps people not running Linux.
