musl 1.1.0

Freshmeat - Wed, 2014-04-16 03:37
musl is a new implementation of the standard library for Linux-based systems. It is lightweight, fast, simple, free, and strives to be correct in the sense of standards-conformance and safety. It includes a wrapper for building programs against musl in place of the system standard library (e.g. glibc), making it possible to immediately evaluate the library and build compact statically linked binaries with it.

Release Notes: New features include support for RELRO protection in the dynamic linker, VDSO acceleration for clock functions on x86_64, and improvements to malloc that avoid early allocation failures specific to PIE binaries. Several important bugs have been fixed, including searches past the end of the buffer in memmem and multiple bugs in printf floating point formatting, one of which may be able to trigger a buffer overflow under certain conditions. Some bugs specific to the MIPS, microblaze, and x32 ports have also been fixed.

Performance Co-Pilot 3.9.2

Freshmeat - Tue, 2014-04-15 20:52
Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) is a framework and set of services for supporting system-level performance monitoring and performance management. It provides a unifying abstraction for all of the interesting performance data in a system, and allows client applications to easily retrieve and process any subset of that data using a single API. A client-server architecture allows multiple clients to monitor the same host, and a single client to monitor multiple hosts. Archive logging and replay are integrated so that a client application can use the same API to process real-time data from a host or historical data from an archive.

Release Notes: This release has a distinctly Pythonic flavour, with many extensions to the PCP python APIs. An interface allowing slow PMDAs to avoid the initial timeout with pmcd(1) is introduced, along with improvements to the RPM PMDA, new monitoring tools, and the next batch of long option updates.

Caché Monitor 2.56

Freshmeat - Tue, 2014-04-15 15:28
Caché Monitor is an SQL development tool for InterSystems database Caché. It features an advanced SQL query editor with SQL syntax highlighting, SQL code completion with context sensitive information about database objects (also known as Intellisense), an SQL history buffer for executed SQL commands, SQL code formatting, parallel queries, graphical SQL execution plan with index and selectivity information, SQL abbreviations, and much more.

In the table viewer, the new storage tab lists the storage information about a table, like global name and global size. All workspace settings are saved on exit and reloaded on startup, so Caché Monitor remembers the window position and state (docked\undocked).
