Conseptizer 2558

FreshMeat - Thursday 29th of May 2014 09:03:25 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: First public version.

C-ICAP Classify 20140529

FreshMeat - Thursday 29th of May 2014 04:44:00 PM
C-ICAP Classify is a module that allows classification (labeling) of Web pages, images, and soon video based on content. Labels are placed in HTTP headers. Any PIC-Label META tags are exported into HTTP headers. This allows for creation of very flexible filters according to rules defined by the user, using the ICAP enabled proxy's ACLs. It is not a URL filter, so implementing it with sslBump or similar proxy technologies makes it very difficult to bypass. Text classification is done using Fast Hyperspace (based on Hyperspace from CRM114) and/or a Fast Naive Bayes. Image and video (when implemented) use haar feature detection from the OpenCV library.

Release Notes: This release contains a bugfix (rarely triggered memory leak) and optimizations. These optimizations can be quite significant in reducing time to classify for larger documents. There are also large gains in iterative training with fnb_learn, especially with the -d option.

SymmetricDS 3.5.22

FreshMeat - Thursday 29th of May 2014 01:40:45 PM
SymmetricDS provides file and database synchronization with support for multi-master replication, filtered synchronization, and transformation across the network in a heterogeneous environment. It supports multiple subscribers with one-direction or bi-directional, asynchronous data replication. It uses Web and database technologies to replicate data as a scheduled or near-realtime operation. The software has been designed to scale for a large number of nodes, work across low-bandwidth connections, and withstand periods of network outage. It works with most operating systems, file systems, and databases, including Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, MS SQL Server (including Azure), IBM DB2, H2, HSQLDB, Derby, Firebird, Interbase, Informix, Greenplum, SQLite (including Android), Sybase ASE, and Sybase ASA (SQL Anywhere) databases.

Release Notes: This patch release fixes four bugs and makes six improvements. Fixes include handling large numerics and capturing "updates only" on SQL Server. Improvements include the ability to run SQL on a client before and after initial load, caching to improve performance, a column transform for accessing parameters, and UNC path support for the SQL Server bulk loader.

Java SQL Admin Tool 2.5

FreshMeat - Thursday 29th of May 2014 09:21:46 AM
Admin is entirely written in Java. It uses Swing GUI Components and JDBC to connect to databases. It has been succesfully tested with MySQL, Derby, InstantDB, Oracle, Empress, MS SQL Server, and PostgreSQL. You can have a tree view of the RDBMS or pick a single instance to have a look at its metadata. It allows you to create, modify, and drop tables and to create indices on a table. The dynamic form makes it easy to enter data into a certain table, and the guided query makes it easy to retrieve data from a table and to export it. Java developers will probably enjoy the code generator doing an OO relational wrapper and a swing GUI for them. There is a tool with which SQL statements can be enriched with a few commands, generating a GUI to easily select data from a DB. You can also export and import data and transport it from one DBMS to another.

Release Notes: The login window now allows you to save all parameters to a file and to load parameters from previously saved files. A Jasper Report Viewer based on Jasper classes was integrated. Database Info has been extended. You can now set a table name filter pattern, and create files using Graphviz dot notation to visualise databases. SQL Monitor offers some helpers, accessed by pressing the middle mouse button within the pick list item window.

How to set up Raspberry Pi, the little computer you can cook into DIY tech projects

You don't need an electrical engineering degree to build a robot army. With the $35 Raspberry Pi B+, you can create robots and connected devices on the cheap, with little more than an Internet connection and a bunch of spare time. The Raspberry Pi is a computer about the size of a credit card. The darling of the do-it-yourself electronics crowd, the Pi was originally designed to teach kids computer and programming skills without the need for expensive computer labs. People have used Raspberry Pis for everything from robots to cheap home media centers. The Pi sports USB ports, HDMI video, and a host of other peripherals. The latest version, the B+, sports 512MB of RAM and uses a MicroSD card instead of a full-size card. Read more

LibreOffice Ported To 64-bit ARM (AArch64)

As more and more open-source programs get brought up for 64-bit ARM, LibreOffice is the latest to receive such AArch64 enablement. As of today in LibreOffice Git is the initial AArch64 support. Over one thousand new lines of code were added to LibreOffice by Red Hat's Stephan Bergmann for allowing the open-source office suite to build on the ARMv8 64-bit architecture. LibreOffice already runs on many CPU architectures from x86 to Alpha and SPARC with ARM64 just being the latest. Read more

SUSE's Flavio Castelli on Docker's Rise Among Linux Distros

Docker has only gained traction since its launch a little over a year ago as more companies join the community's efforts on a regular basis. On July 30, the first official Docker build for openSUSE was released, making this distribution the latest among many to join the fray. I connected with Flavio Castelli, a senior software engineer at SUSE, who works extensively on SUSE Linux Enterprise and has played a major role in bringing official Docker support to openSUSE. In this interview, he discuses the importance of bringing Docker to each Linux distribution, the future of Docker on SUSE Linux Enterprise, and other interesting developments in the Docker ecosystem.
