Conseptizer 2558a

FreshMeat - Sunday 1st of June 2014 06:06:00 PM
Conseptizer is the combination of two ideas: a closure(-mimic) / higher-order programming and dynamic typing library for the C programming language, and a very dynamic programming language that provides expressiveness through simplicity. It offers powerful features that cannot be found in the mainstream today. Each of these two aspects can be useful on their own, but the combination and tight integration in Conseptizer means that 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: A public C interface is now provided.

Vrapper 0.44.0

FreshMeat - Sunday 1st of June 2014 03:46:27 PM
Vrapper is an Eclipse plugin which acts as a wrapper for Eclipse text editors to provide a Vim-like input scheme for moving around and editing text. Unlike other plugins which embed Vim in Eclipse, Vrapper imitates the behavior of Vim while still using whatever editor you have opened in the workbench. The goal is to have the comfort and ease which comes with the different modes, complex commands, and count/operator/motion combinations which are the key features behind editing with Vim, while preserving the powerful features of the different Eclipse text editors, like code generation and refactoring.

Release Notes: Many defects were fixed, including some really old ones.

Armadillo C++ Library 4.300.8

FreshMeat - Sunday 1st of June 2014 08:45:29 AM
Armadillo is a C++ linear algebra library (matrix maths) aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use. The API is deliberately similar to Matlab's. Integer, floating point, and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS numerics libraries. A delayed evaluation approach, based on template meta-programming, is used (during compile time) to combine several operations into one and reduce or eliminate the need for temporaries.

Release Notes: This release adds more robust norm related functions, as well as fixes for interactions between cube tubes and vectors.

Seed7 2014-06-01

FreshMeat - Sunday 1st of June 2014 08:13:07 AM
Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.

Release Notes: The compiler has been refactored. Code has been moved from s7c.sd7 to several compiler libraries. The refactored compiler is the first compiler of the 3.0 series. The chapter in the manual about the foreign function interface has been improved. Checks for parse and str have been added to chkflt.sd7 and chkint.sd7. In chkccomp.c, code has been moved to new functions. Usages of logError have been added to cmd_rtl.c and cmd_unx.c. The function cstri_buf_to_stri has been added to striutl.c. The generation of float literals in the compiler has been improved to avoid precision being lost.

FreshMeat - Sunday 1st of June 2014 07:47:07 AM
LDAP Account Manager (LAM) is a web frontend for managing entries (e.g. users, groups, DHCP settings) stored in an LDAP directory. LAM was designed to make LDAP management as easy as possible for the user. It abstracts from the technical details of LDAP and allows persons without technical background to manage LDAP entries. If needed, power users may still directly edit LDAP entries via the integrated LDAP browser.

Release Notes: This version extends LAM's password policy rules and checks password complexity while typing. LAM Pro supports the latest sudo schema, and the BIND DLZ module can automatically manage PTR records.

Yentoo 20140519

FreshMeat - Saturday 31st of May 2014 08:33:31 PM
Yentoo is stock Gentoo ported to the Lemote Yeeloong, a netbook based on a 64-bit little endian MIPS processor named the loongson2f. Although Gentoo strives to be a "from source" distribution, building a full desktop system from a Gentoo's stage3 seed using a slow processor like the loongson2f can take many days of frustration. Yentoo gives the user a head start by providing a prebuilt XFCE4 desktop with software for browsing, email, word processing, multimedia, chat and games. It also provides a toolchain and development tools ready to target 32- and 64-bit little endian MIPS for ABI=o32, n32, and n64. Two flavors are provided, vanilla and hardened. Hardened Yentoo has all userland built with Gentoo's hardened toolchain for added security. However, the added security comes at a price of running slightly slower than the vanilla version.

Release Notes: This is the initial pubic announcement, but the project has been in development for two years and is well tested.

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.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
