CGIProxy 2.1.11

FreshMeat - Saturday 31st of May 2014 08:04:34 PM
CGIProxy is a Perl CGI script that acts as an Internet proxy. Through it, you can retrieve resources that may be inaccessible from your own machine. The user is kept as anonymous as possible from any servers. HTTP and FTP are supported, and optionally SSL. Common uses include censorship circumvention, VPN-like setups, anonymous proxies, personal proxies, and others. Options include text-only browsing (to save bandwidth), selective cookie and script removal, simple ad filtering, access restriction by server, encoded target URLs and cookies, configuration by end user, and much more (currently over 70 config options). Javascript and Flash are fully supported. Messages are in 14 languages so far. Can be installed as a CGI script, a mod_perl script, a FastCGI script, or with its own embedded secure HTTP server. An online demo is available.

Release Notes: This release adds CORS support, which among other things makes YouTube work again. It adds a page to the site about security with CGIProxy, and links to it from the CGIProxy footer. IPv6 support has been added, but the author was unable to test it. Several bugs have been fixed, making more sites work better.

Fotoxx 14.06

FreshMeat - Saturday 31st of May 2014 04:40:08 PM
Fotoxx navigates an image collection using a thumbnail browser to choose images to view or edit. Edit functions include brightness, contrast, color, gamma, white balance, tone mapping, red eyes, sharpen, blur, noise suppression, smart erase, trim (crop), resize, rotate, add text, bend/warp, many art effects, HDR, HDF, stack, and panorama. Edit functions use movable curves and sliders. Feedback is live using the whole image. RAW files can be edited and saved with deep color. Areas or objects can be selected using freehand draw, follow edge, and tone matching. Selections can be edited in place with adjustable blending. They can also be cut and pasted into other images. Any metadata can be edited, reported, and searched (filenames, tags, dates, geotags, comments, captions, ratings, etc.). Collections (arbitrary subsets) can be defined and viewed. Batch functions are available for rename, resize/export, RAW conversion, and more.

Release Notes: The Window layout was revised to improve space utilization. A custom convolution kernel can be edited and applied to an image. If a RAW file has no embedded thumbnail, one is created. Panorama residual alignment errors (e.g. parallax offsets) can be fixed by dragging and warping images with the mouse. Trim/Rotate and Fix Perspective can be adjusted in 1-pixel steps using the keyboard arrow keys. Resize and sharpen options were added to Batch Convert RAW. Mashup can adjust image overlaps and transparencies more easily. Three minor bugs were fixed.
