pride r219

Fri, 11/04/2014 - 3:12pm
Pride combines bash scripts, zenity, ant, ImageMagick, and the Android tools to create a fast and simple POSIX alternative for Android development. It provides all the basic commands (clean, build, release, etc.) of other Android IDEs. But it is primarily a robust and simple injection framework. Injections from methods to clusters of activities are easily created from existing code and can then be injected into any project. Pride can also be used to batch build, load, or release multiple projects and can update class and resource files among projects that use the same objects or resources.

Release Notes: The Projects::Hidden option, which triggered the Hide and Unhide menu, was replaced with Projects:Hide and Projects::Unhide to reduce the number of mouse clicks needed for these common actions.

V6 Thompson Shell Port 20140410

Fri, 11/04/2014 - 3:10am
V6 Thompson Shell Port provides two ports of the original /bin/sh from Sixth Edition (V6) UNIX (circa 1975). osh is an enhanced port of the shell, and sh6 is an unenhanced port of the shell. This project also includes glob6, if, goto, and fd2 as external shell utilities. While they remain external for compatible use by sh6, these utilities are integrated into osh to improve shell performance.

Release Notes: In Makefile, this release changes MOXARCH to OSXCFLAGS and OSXLDFLAGS to play better with MacPorts. In osh.1, it adds a missing (+) to version in Special commands. In osh.c, it enables '.' and 'source' special built-in command execution to succeed when the user invokes the shell as 'osh -c string'.

j661 1.2 Beta 3

Fri, 11/04/2014 - 12:25am
The j661 project provides a generic CDS (or ARINC 661 Server) in order to facilitate the understanding of the ARINC 661 standard, prototype ARINC 661 concepts and architectures, and facilitate the reuse of ARINC 661 specifications and artefacts between projects. The CDS architecture is designed to allow defining the Server behavior to be easily modified or extended. This is achieved by a modular plug-in architecture, allowing customization at runtime without changing anything in the Server core itself.

Release Notes: Many new checks for the Widget Definition Plugin. Supports the AlwaysOnTop mode for JavaFX (starting with Java8u20). Adds syntax for the Zoom factor to ensure that a specified ARINC 661 unit exactly fits on a specified number of pixels. Allows loading of Launcher properties in extensions. Allows much greater customization of the J661 framework in extensions. Many bugs have been fixed.

Tor-ramdisk 20140409

Thu, 10/04/2014 - 1:28pm
Tor-ramdisk is a uClibc-based micro Linux distribution whose only purpose is to host a Tor server in an environment that maximizes security and privacy. Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Security is enhanced in tor-ramdisk by employing a monolithically compiled GRSEC/PAX patched kernel and hardened system tools. Privacy is enhanced by turning off logging at all levels so that even the Tor operator only has access to minimal information. Finally, since everything runs in ephemeral memory, no information survives a reboot, except for the Tor configuration file and the private RSA key, which may be exported and imported by FTP or SSH.

Release Notes: This release addresses CVE-2014-0160 in openssl, which was bumped to version 1.0.1g. The kernel was also bumped to 3.13.8 plus Gentoo's hardened-patches, but all other packages remain at the same versions as the previous release. Upgrading is strongly recommended.

Release Notes: Flowgrind now allows the user to set CPU affinity and display OS information in the summary line. Preliminary support for mixed flows (e.g., between Linux and FreeBSD) was added. On FreeBSD, this flowgrind release can sample some TCP kernel metrics, in a way similar to Linux. This release also includes a lot of other smaller enhancements and bugfixes.
