Linux Test Project 20140422

20 hours 4 min ago
Linux Test Project is a joint project started by SGI, OSDL, and Bull developed and maintained by IBM, Cisco, Fujitsu, SUSE, Red Hat, Oracle, and others. The project goal is to deliver tests that validate the reliability, robustness, and stability of Linux. Currently it contains more than 1000 syscall test cases, I/O and AIO stress test cases, a few Linux kernel device drivers, a well maintained fork of the Open POSIX Testsuite, a real-time test suite, and more.

Release Notes: 210 patches by 27 authors were merged. Notable changes are a continued effort to clean up old test cases (about 30 test cases were cleaned up or rewritten), 20 new syscall test cases, and increased coverage in 15 existing test cases. New tcp_fastopen, rcutorture, and acpi_cpufreq test cases were added. Fixes include out-of-tree build, cross compilation, as well as bashisms in runltp and a few scripts, and many more smaller fixes.

queXF 1.14.0

21 hours 31 min ago
queXF (pronounced kweks-eff) takes scanned paper forms generated using queXML and reads them. Operators can then verify that queXF has read the form correctly. Once this is done, the data collected can be exported in a fixed width ASCII file with a DDI data description. queXF can be used as an alternative to programs such as Cardiff Teleform and Remark OMR, in some situations. It removes the need to manually enter form data, therefore reducing error and fatigue. It does OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) on each form to determine if boxes have been filled, and can use ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) to determine what characters have been entered into boxes.

Release Notes: Page edge detection has been greatly improved. queXF can determine if a page corner has been detected incorrectly and repair it. This should greatly improve page alignment where scans are not ideal.

MeTA1 1.0.Beta1.0

Wed, 2014-04-23 22:18
MeTA1 is a modularized message transfer agent (MTA) consisting of five (or more) persistent processes, four of which are multi-threaded. A queue manager controls SMTP servers and SMTP clients to receive and send email messages, an address resolver provides lookups in various maps (including DNS) for mail routing, and a main control program starts the other processes and watches over their execution. The queue manager organizes the flow of messages through the system and provides measures to avoid overloading the local or remote systems by implementing a central control instance. It is simple to configure using a C-like syntax and is secure and efficient.

Release Notes: This release fixes a potential smtps restart if smar does not answer in time. A pmilter is used, and access checks are delayed.

Alaya Webdav Server 1.3.1

Wed, 2014-04-23 18:27
Alaya is a primitive chrooting Web server with basic WebDAV support. It can serve HTTPS and HTTP, and can authenticate using PAM, /etc/shadow, /etc/passwd, or using its own authentication files that allow for 'native' users that only have access to alaya content. It's intended to be a simple method of sharing content over WebDAV, and though it can be configured with a config file, it's easy to configure by command-line switches alone. Alaya always chroots to ensure that malicious users can't use '..' within a URL to access unintended documents, and that users can't accidentally leave documents in places outside of the chroot. It has a 'ChHome' mode that chroots users into their home directory and serves content from there. It supports .cgi scripts out of a trusted path (so not from within the chrooted WebDAV share) and read-only shared directories that are outside of the chroot (allowing access to shared content when in ChHome mode).

Release Notes: A weird segfault on some systems involving malloc_hook was fixed be removing malloc_hook. An 'Events' framework that can run a script in response to certain connections was added. 'make install' was implemented.

International Components for Unicode (C/C++) 53.1

Wed, 2014-04-23 14:00
ICU provides a Unicode implementation, with functions for formatting numbers, dates, times, and currencies (according to locale conventions, transliteration, and parsing text in those formats). It provides flexible patterns for formatting messages, where the pattern determines the order of the variable parts of the messages, and the format for each of those variables. These patterns can be stored in resource files for translation to different languages. Included are more than 100 codepage converters for interaction with non-unicode systems.

Release Notes: This release contains major improvements. Collation supports much faster UTF-8 sorting, much smaller data files, improved syntax, and many bugfixes. The latest data from CLDR is incorporated, with many fixes and improvements to locale data. Formatting has been improved significantly, such as the addition of relative times ("3 weeks ago"), and an API to format the new measurement units in CLDR (1 meter vs 3 meters).

Mnemosyne Project 2.3

Wed, 2014-04-23 12:58
The Mnemosyne software resembles a traditional flash card program to help you memorize question/answer pairs, but with an important twist: it uses a sophisticated algorithm to schedule the best time for a card to come up for review. Difficult cards that you tend to forget quickly will be scheduled more often, while Mnemosyne won't waste your time on things you remember well.

Release Notes: The sync protocol has changed in this version, so make sure you update both the client and the server at the same time. A quick-and-dirty Android client is available, where you can do reviews in your mobile browser using a Web server that runs on your Android device. This client has full support for the syncing protocol. The functionality of mnemosyne-webserver has now been merged into the main program, and can be activated through 'Configure Mnemosyne - servers'. There are many speedups and fixes.
