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.

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.

GluCat 0.7.3

Wed, 02/04/2014 - 12:49pm
GluCat is a library of template classes that model the universal Clifford algebras over the field of real numbers, with arbitrary dimension and arbitrary signature. It implements a model of each Clifford algebra corresponding to each non-degenerate quadratic form up to a maximum set by the user. GluCat classes are designed to be used as template parameters for other template libraries. GluCat includes the PyClical extension module for Python. This implements the Python classes index_set and clifford, which interface to corresponding C++ classes in GluCat.

Release Notes: GluCat 0.7.3 fixes a bug where the line print_exec("from PyClical import *") was left out of some of the pyclical_tutorial*.py files. The C++ code, the Cython code, and the configure and Makefiles are unchanged from GluCat 0.7.2, other than updating the version number, and so these have not been tested again.
