SQL Relay 0.55

Mon, 31/03/2014 - 6:01am
SQL Relay is a persistent database connection pooling, proxying, and load balancing system. It supports many database systems and programming languages. There are drop-in replacement libraries for MySQL and PostgreSQL, command line clients, a GUI configuration tool, and extensive documentation. The APIs support advanced database operations such as binding variables, multi-row fetches, client-side result set caching, suspended transactions, query routing, and query filtering. It can be used for speeding up database-driven Web-based applications, accessing databases from unsupported platforms, migrating between databases, distributing access to replicated databases, and throttling database access.

Release Notes: Support for LOBs has been improved significantly. Fetch buffers are configurable with Sybase, FreeTDS, DB2, and ODBC now. Default fetch buffer sizes are the same for all databases now. SQL Relay re-logs in periodically when used with nodes of a replicated database or cluster behind a load balancer. A potential cursor leak was fixed.

Groonga 4.0.1

Mon, 31/03/2014 - 4:31am
Groonga is a fast and accurate full text search engine based on an inverted index. Newly registered document instantly appears in search results, and updates are allowed without read locks. These characteristics result in superior performance for real-time applications. It is also a column-oriented database management system (DBMS). Compared with well-known row-oriented systems, such as MySQL and PostgreSQL, column-oriented systems are more suited for aggregate queries.

Release Notes: This release resolves an issue with the size of the database increasing. This feature is backward compatible, but not forward compatible. You need to recreate the database for it. This release supports a weight vector column and adjuster option for the select command. Both of these are used for accomplishing personalized search.

GluCat 0.7.2

Mon, 31/03/2014 - 4:30am
GluCat is a library of template classes that model the universal Clifford algebras over the field of real numbers, with arbitrary dimension and arbitrary signature. It implements a model of each Clifford algebra corresponding to each non-degenerate quadratic form up to a maximum set by the user. GluCat classes are designed to be used as template parameters for other template libraries. GluCat includes the PyClical extension module for Python. This implements the Python classes index_set and clifford, which interface to corresponding C++ classes in GluCat.

Release Notes: GluCat 0.7.2 with PyClical now generates IPython notebooks. The Pyclical tutorials are now accompanied by corresponding IPython notebooks. The nork() function in matrix.h and matrix_imp.h that implements the left Kronecker quotient is now accompanied by the signed_perm_nork() function, which is faster for the case used by fast<>() in matrix_mult_imp.h. Use of the Boost pool allocator with framed_multi<> is now optional, controlled via the new symbol _GLUCAT_USE_BOOST_POOL_ALLOC. GluCat also compiles cleanly and builds correctly with g++ 4.8 and clang++ 3.4.

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.

It has a powerful segmented downloading ability, downloading a file from multiple sources and multiple protocols and utilizing your download bandwidth to the maximum. It supports downloading a file from HTTP(S)/FTP and BitTorrent at the same time, while the data downloaded from HTTP(S)/FTP is uploaded to the BitTorrent swarm. Using Metalink's chunk checksums, aria2 automatically validates chunks of data while downloading a file like BitTorrent.

Release Notes: This release fixes a BitTorrent download failure on the Mingw build.

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.
