libcsdbg 1.27

Thu, 03/04/2014 - 12:36am
libcsdbg is a C++ exception stack tracer. When an exception is thrown, caught, and handled, libcsdbg offers the tools to create and process the exception stack trace, the path the exception has propagated up the call stack, unwinding it up to the section were it was handled. The traces are detailed with demangled function signatures and additional addr2line information (the source code file and line from which each function was called). libcsdbg can use all the well-known objective code file formats (a.out, elf, coff, ecoff, etc.) and can easily be used as the base for your own instrumentation code. libcsdbg transparently loads the symbol tables of the chosen dynamic libraries and of the executable, demangles function symbols to complete signatures, and binds function names to runtime addresses (even for the DSO symbols).

Release Notes: This major maintenance contains the final form of all current features and documentation. The documentation overview, API reference, and PDF user manual were updated with all of the latest major API changes and the new features.

Ghostscript 9.14

Thu, 03/04/2014 - 12:20am
Ghostscript is a processor for PostScript and PDF files. It can rasterize these files to a wide variety of printers, devices for screen preview, and image file formats. Since applications tend to prepare pages for printing in a high-level format such as PostScript, most Unix users with low-level bitmap printers, such as inkjets, use GhostScript as part of the printing process. In addition, Ghostscript is capable of converting PostScript files, functionality comparable to Adobe Acrobat Distiller, but on the command line. In addition, Ghostscript is used for file import and viewing by a great many other applications, including xv, ImageMagick, gimp, and xdvi. Several GUI wrappers for viewing PostScript and PDF files exist, including GSview, ghostview, gv, ggv, and kghostview. This is far from a comprehensive list.

Release Notes: A improved "eps2write" device was added to replace the deprecated "epswrite" device. The "pdfwrite" device now uses the same color management engine as Ghostscript rendering devices, by default LCMS2. A new "pwgraster" output device was added. The CUPS device now has improved support for PPD-less printing. Memory usage when processing PDF files that use transparency was reduced. Various other minor improvements and bugfixes were made.

MUSCLE 6.02

Wed, 02/04/2014 - 11:08pm
MUSCLE (Multi User Server Client Linking Environment) is an N-way messaging server and networking API. It includes client-side networking APIs for various languages, including C, C++, C#, Delphi, Java, and Python. MUSCLE lets programs communicate over a network via streams of serialized Message objects. The included server program ("muscled") lets its clients message each other and store information in its server-side hierarchical database. The database supports flexible queries via hierarchical wildcarding, and "live" updates via a subscription mechanism.

Release Notes: This minor releases fixes bugs in the MemMem() function and the DataNode recycling mechanism, adds various convenience methods, and refines the detection of wildcard strings to be less conservative.

launch4j 3.3

Wed, 02/04/2014 - 7:22pm
Launch4j is a cross-platform tool for wrapping Java applications distributed as jars in Windows native executables. The executable can be configured to search for a certain JRE version or use a bundled one, and it's possible to set runtime options, like the initial/max heap size. The wrapper also provides better user experience through an application icon, a native pre-JRE splash screen, and a Java download page in case the appropriate JRE cannot be found. The increase in size of the application is small.

Release Notes: During JRE searches, the registry entries are now checked, and only valid runtimes are taken into account. The OS X 10.8 version of windres was updated to fix a version info problem. Support for Japanese characters was added. The configuration is now loaded and saved with the correct encoding.

Template Data Interface (TDI) 0.9.9.8

Wed, 02/04/2014 - 4:32pm
Template Data Interface (TDI, /ʹtedɪ/) is a markup templating system written in Python with (optional but recommended) speedup code written in C. Unlike most templating systems, TDI does not invent its own language to provide functionality. Instead, you simply mark the nodes you want to manipulate within the template document. The template is parsed, and the marked nodes are presented to your Python code, where they can be modified in any way you want.

Release Notes: This release adds a new tool collection which handles template dependencies and provides various API and performance improvements and a few bug fixes.

FastFlow 2.0.4

Wed, 02/04/2014 - 4:30pm
FastFlow is a pattern-based programming framework targeting streaming applications. It implements pipeline, farm, divide and conquer, and their composition, as well as generic streaming networks. It is specifically designed to support the development and the seamless porting of existing applications on multi-core. The layered template-based C++ design ensures flexibility and extendibility. Its lock-free/fence-free run-time support minimizes cache invalidation traffic and enforces the development of high-performance (high-throughput, low-latency) scalable applications. It has been proven faster than TBB, OpenMP, and Cilk on several micro-benchmarcks and real-world applications, especially when dealing with fine-grained parallelism and high-throughput applications.

Release Notes: A major redesign of implementation layers, new patterns, a partial migration to C++11, support for GPGPUs (CUDA and OpenCL), and native support (zero-copy) for Infiniband networks and TCP/IP.

v4l-utils and libv4l 1.0.1

Wed, 02/04/2014 - 4:24pm
v4l-utils is a collection of various video4linux (V4L) and DVB utilities. libv4l is an accompanying collection of libraries that adds a thin abstraction layer on top of video4linux2 (V4L2) devices. The purpose of this layer is to make it easy for application writers to support a wide variety of devices without having to write separate code for different devices in the same class. It consists of 3 different libraries. libv4lconvert offers functions to convert from any (known) pixel format to V4l2_PIX_FMT_BGR24 or V4l2_PIX_FMT_YUV420. libv4l1 offers the (deprecated) v4l1 API on top of v4l2 devices, independent of the drivers for those devices supporting v4l1 compatibility (which many v4l2 drivers do not). libv4l2 offers the v4l2 API on top of v4l2 devices, while adding support for the application transparent libv4lconvert conversion where necessary.

Release Notes: Various improvements and bug fixes were made.

grep 2.18

Wed, 02/04/2014 - 3:53pm
GNU grep is based on a fast lazy-state deterministic matcher (about twice as fast as stock Unix egrep) hybridized with a Boyer-Moore-Gosper search for a fixed string that eliminates impossible text from being considered by the full regexp matcher without necessarily having to look at every character. The result is typically many times faster than Unix grep or egrep.

Release Notes: Usage with multibyte locales was significantly accelerated. Mishandling of patterns like [^^-~] in unibyte locales was fixed. The deprecated "--mmap" option was removed. The behavior of the shortcurts "\s" and "\S" in multibyte locales was fixed. Handling of arbitrary PCRE errors was improved. Various further minor bug fixes were made.
