launch4j 3.2

Sun, 30/03/2014 - 6:26pm
Launch4j is a cross-platform tool for wrapping Java applications distributed as jars in Windows native executables. The executable can be configured to search for a certain JRE version or use a bundled one, and it's possible to set runtime options, like the initial/max heap size. The wrapper also provides better user experience through an application icon, a native pre-JRE splash screen, and a Java download page in case the appropriate JRE cannot be found. The increase in size of the application is small.

Release Notes: It is now possible to configure the JRE search to look for 32-bit or 64-bit Java Runtime Environments. The logging was improved. Problem with loading JVM options from Ini file was fixed. A crash was fixed when the classpath was not defined.

Paranoid TelnetD 0.2

Sun, 30/03/2014 - 5:33pm
Paranoid TelnetD is written in straight C with few dependencies. It is intended for use with embedded or legacy devices (like the hand-scanners used in warehouses) that communicate via telnet. It features: 'telnet only' user accounts, separate from the system authentication (so only the specified usernames/passwords can login via telnet, and only via telnet); user, IP address, and MAC address whitelisting/blacklisting; chrooting with 'bind mounts' to allow access to certain directories under the chroot jail; and 'honeypot mode' in which all authentication fails and all events are logged at syslog 'crit' level.

Release Notes: This release adds IPv6 support, fixes segfaults, provides more conservative use of file descriptors, and makes Shadow MD5 passwords work.

congruity 18

Sun, 30/03/2014 - 1:58pm
congruity is a GUI application for programming Logitech Harmony remote controls. Configuration setup is via the Logitech Web site, in the same fashion as Logitech's own Windows/Mac OS software. congruity will handle processing the files downloaded from the Web site, which perform "check connectivity", "configuration update", "firmware update", and soon "ir learning" operations. It uses libconcord for the underlying remote interaction, is written in Python/wxPython, and is portable to at least Linux and Windows.

Release Notes: This is a significant feature and bugfix release for MHGUI, and all MHGUI users are encouraged to upgrade. It does not contain any changes to the congruity application itself, so non-MHGUI users do not need to upgrade. Major improvements to MHGUI include: support for Harmony 650 and Harmony Link; support for configuring the Watch TV button on Harmony 200/300; updates to the Device Configuration page to indicate clearly which commands are mapped and which are not; and a rework to process long running network and USB operations in the background and provide better status.

Sculptor 3.0.3

Sun, 30/03/2014 - 11:52am
Sculptor is a productivity tool that applies the concepts from Domain-Driven Design and Domain Specific Languages. You express your design intent in a textual specification, from which Sculptor generates high quality Java code and configuration. You can use the concepts from Domain-Driven Design (DDD) in the textual Domain Specific Language (DSL), e.g. Service, Module, Entity, Value Object, Repository. The generated code is based on well-known frameworks such as Spring Framework, Hibernate, and Java EE. Sculptor takes care of the technical details and the tedious repetitive work, and lets you focus on delivering more business value (and have more fun). The DSL and the code generation drives the development and is not a one time shot. The application can be developed incrementally with an efficient round trip loop. Sculptor is useful when developing typical enterprise or Web applications that benefit from a rich and persistent domain model.

Release Notes: This minor release provides a few bug fixes and adds support for generator properties which are common within a multi-module Maven project.

checkit 0.1.0

Sun, 30/03/2014 - 11:26am
checkit is a file integrity tool that adds data assurance capabilities to file systems which support extended attributes. It allows you to detect any data integrity issues or file changes to any file. By storing a checksum as an extended attribute, checkit provides an easy way to detect silent data corruption, bit rot, or other modification errors. It was inspired by the checksumming performed by filesystems like BTRFS and ZFS. These filesystems ensure data integrity by storing a checksum (CRC) of data and checking read data against the checksum. With mirroring of data, they can silently heal the data should an error be found.

Release Notes: This release adds export and import ability. The checksum can now be exported to a hidden file and imported from a hidden file, to allow use on filesystems and archives which do not support extended attributes.

patool 1.5

Sun, 30/03/2014 - 8:03am
Various archive formats can be created, extracted, tested, listed, searched, compared, and repacked by patool. The advantage of patool is its simplicity in handling archive files without having to remember myriad programs and options. The archive format is determined by the file(1) program and as a fallback by the archive file extension. patool supports 7z (.7z), ACE (.ace), ADF (.adf), ALZIP (.alz), APE (.ape), AR (.a), ARC (.arc), ARJ (.arj), bzip2 (.bz2), CAB (.cab), COMPRESS (.Z), CPIO (.cpio), deb (.deb), DMS (.dms), FLAC (.flac), gzip (.gz), ISO (.iso), LRZIP (.lrz), LZH (.lha, .lzh), LZIP (.lz), LZMA (.lzma), LZOP (.lzo), RPM (.rpm), RAR (.rar), RZIP (.rz), SHN (.shn), tar (.tar), XZ (.xz), zip (.zip, .jar), and ZOO (.zoo) formats. It relies on helper applications to handle those archive formats (for example bzip2 for BZIP2 archives). The archive formats tar, zip, bzip2, and gzip are supported natively and do not require helper applications to be installed.

Release Notes: Fixes detection of existing broken symlinks when unpacking.

lnav 0.7.0

Sun, 30/03/2014 - 6:25am
The Logfile Navigator, lnav for short, is a curses-based tool for viewing and analyzing log files. The value added by lnav over text viewers or editors is that it takes advantage of any semantic information that can be gleaned from the log file, such as timestamps and log levels. Using this extra semantic information, lnav can do things like interleaving messages from different files, generate histograms of messages over time, and provide hotkeys for navigating through the file. These features are meant to allow the user to quickly and efficiently focus on problems.

Release Notes: The scrollbar is now highlighted with red or yellow to show which sections of the logs have errors or warnings. Tab-completion has been added for searches so that you can complete whatever is currently displayed on screen. Syntax-highlighting has been added for the command prompt (i.e. search regexes and SQL queries). The xterm title is updated to display the current log file. A "headless" mode allows you to use lnav to process logs from a script.
