reposurgeon 3.9

Sun, 13/04/2014 - 3:28am
A tool for editing version-control repository history, reposurgeon enables risky operations that version-control systems don't want to let you do, such as editing past comments and metadata and removing commits. It works with any version control system that can export and import git fast-import streams, including git, hg, bzr, CVS, and RCS. It can also read Subversion dump files directly, and can thus be used to script production of very high-quality conversions from Subversion to any supported DVCS.

Release Notes: The attribution-parsing code handles odd characters in names better now. The filter command can operate on email addresses as well as names. There is a new 'stamp' command to report action stamps of commits. A new 'count' command reports selection-set counts. A new branchify_mapping option for renaming Subversion branches on analysis.

Immutable Collections for Java 1.6

Sat, 12/04/2014 - 9:26pm
Immutable Collections for Java is a library providing immutable/persistent collection classes for Java. While collections are immutable, they provide methods for adding and removing values by creating new modified copies of themselves. Each copy shares almost all of its structure with other copies, to minimize memory consumption. The library includes a singly-linked (cons/cddr style) list/stack, an integer tree-based indexed list, a 2-3 tree-based random access indexed list, a 2-3 tree-based map, a hash tree-based map, and hash- and tree-based sets. All collections provide immutable Cursor as well as standard Iterator classes for looping through all elements. A utility class provides functional style algorithmic processing of Cursors, including foldLeft, foldRight, collect, select, and reject. The 2-3 tree and integer tree classes are optimized for performance and can be used alongside java.util Collections when immutability is needed for safe data sharing.

Release Notes: This release improves performance and reduces the memory footprint of hash maps and sets. It also allows use of Cursors in foreach loops.

cryptmount 5.0beta1

Sat, 12/04/2014 - 7:06pm
cryptmount is a utility for creating and managing secure filing systems on GNU/Linux systems. After initial setup, it allows any user to mount or unmount filesystems on demand, solely by providing the decryption password, with any system devices needed to access the filing system being configured automatically. A wide variety of encryption schemes (provided by the kernel dm-crypt system and the libgcrypt library) can be used to protect both the filesystem and the access key. The protected filing systems can reside in either ordinary files or disk partitions. The package also supports encrypted swap partitions, and automatic configuration on system boot-up.

Release Notes: This release ports all LUKS functionality to use libcryptsetup, adds a commandline option to query the encrypted filesystem status, and improves Doxygen documentation of the source code.
