Release Notes: This maintenance update includes eight improvements. It fixes an issue in Firefox with mouse position events in dashboards, fixes an issue where inbound worker relay messages weren't processed if the subject line referenced anything other than one valid ticket mask, fixes an issue with authentication signing worker relay messages, fixes an issue where toggling the 'select all' checkbox on worklists multiple times could lead to row selection becoming out of sync before bulk update actions, and removes the Ctrl+E shortcut on replies since this conflicts with Linux and Mac OS X keyboard shortcuts.

Units of measurement for Ada 3.4

Monday 9th of June 2014 03:21:15 PM
The library provides an implementation of dimensioned values for Ada. Unit checks are made at run-time, if not optimized out by the compiler. SI and irregular measurement units are supported. Shifted units like degrees Celsius are supported too. Conversions from and back to strings are provided for all various irregular units. An extensive set of GTK widgets for dealing with dimensioned values is included, though use of GTK is not mandatory for the rest of the library.

Release Notes: The widgets and renderers provided by the library are adapted for the GTK 3.x. GTK 2.x is no longer supported.The Split procedure was added to the Units package. Only Ada 2005 and Ada 2012 are supported when widgets and renderers are used, because GtkAda bindings require at least Ada 2005. The non-GUI parts of the software remain Ada 95 conformant. A bug in text conversion that led to false output of values with units like square meter were fixed. This version was first compiled with GNAT 4.9.

decotengu 0.11.0

Monday 9th of June 2014 03:12:49 PM
decotengu is a dive decompression library to experiment with various implementations of the Buhlmann decompression model with Erik Baker’s gradient factors. The results of decotengu calculations are decompression stops and tissue saturation information. Third party applications can use those results for data analysis purposes or dive planning functionality.

Release Notes: This release reimplements the tabular calculator to use exponential function group homomorphism exp(x + y) = exp(x) * exp(y), which forced a redesign of decompression model code as well. The overall redesign gives a much simpler code base, memory usage improvements, and a significant performance boost. All methods and functions are changed to accept time in minutes instead of time in seconds.
