Paranoid TelnetD 0.4

FreshMeat - Friday 13th of June 2014 10:40:50 AM
Paranoid TelnetD is written in straight C with few dependencies. It is intended for use with embedded or legacy devices (like the hand-scanners used in warehouses) that communicate via telnet. It features: 'telnet only' user accounts, separate from the system authentication (so only the specified usernames/passwords can login via telnet, and only via telnet); user, IP address, and MAC address whitelisting/blacklisting; chrooting with 'bind mounts' to allow access to certain directories under the chroot jail; and 'honeypot mode' in which all authentication fails and all events are logged at syslog 'crit' level.

Release Notes: The 'shell' entry in authentication files is now honored, so you can specify a per-user shell. Changes were made to support compilation in multilib environments. A ptsname crash in some environments was fixed.

Apache uimaFIT 2.1.0

FreshMeat - Friday 13th of June 2014 08:50:25 AM
Apache uimaFIT provides Java annotations for describing UIMA components which can be used to directly describe the UIMA components in Java code without the need for traditional UIMA XML descriptors. This greatly simplifies refactoring a component definition (e.g., changing a configuration parameter name). It also makes it easy to instantiate UIMA components without using XML descriptor files by providing convenient factory methods. It is ideal for testing UIMA components because the component can be easily instantiated and invoked without requiring a descriptor file to be created first.

Release Notes: Bugs were fixed. Java 6 is now required, and UIMA Java SDK 2.6.0 is used.

Conseptizer 2558b

FreshMeat - Thursday 12th of June 2014 07:03:10 PM
Conseptizer is two things: 1. a closure(-mimic) / higher-order programming and dynamic typing library for the C programming language, 2. a very dynamic programming language that provides expressiveness through simplicity and offers powerful features that cannot be found in mainstream languages today. Each of these two aspects can be useful on their own, but the combination and tight integration in Conseptizer means: if at some point your runtime performance requirements are not fulfilled by the dynamic language, it is very easy to migrate parts of your program code to C.

Release Notes: This release extended the standard library and improved the garbage collector and exception handling.

  • DRM display resource leasing (kernel side)
    So, you've got a fine head-mounted display and want to explore the delights of virtual reality. Right now, on Linux, that means getting the window system to cooperate because the window system is the DRM master and holds sole access to all display resources. So, you plug in your device, play with RandR to get it displaying bits from the window system and then carefully configure your VR application to use the whole monitor area and hope that the desktop will actually grant you the boon of page flipping so that you will get reasonable performance and maybe not even experience tearing. Results so far have been mixed, and depend on a lot of pieces working in ways that aren't exactly how they were designed to work.

In a couple of days we have to a final numbers to the University for how many rooms we want, so it would help us out if all the folk who want a room there could register and book one now if you haven’t already done so! We’ll have some available for later booking but we have to pay up front for them now so we can’t reserve too many.
