The goal of the Pango project is to provide an Open Source framework for the layout and rendering of internationalized text. It uses Unicode for all of its encoding, and will eventually support output in all the world's major languages.
Release Notes: PangoLayout is now automatically relayouted if PangoContext has changed. Rendering of rotated frames has been fixed. Bidi tables have been updated to Unicode 6.2.0. Harfbuzz 0.9.9 is now required. Various minor bugs have been fixed.
pyAggr3g470r is a news aggregator with a Web interface based on Flask. It can be deployed on Heroku or on a traditional server.
Release Notes: pyAggr3g470r is now using the Mako template library. Performance improvements for the MongoDB database have been made, and some minor bugfixes. Stop words (a, of, the, an, for...) are now ignored when calculating top words for the generation of the tag cloud. A new page indicates the list of inactive feeds (with no new published articles since a given number of days).
A WikiWikiWeb is a collaborative hypertext environment, with an emphasis on easy access to and modification of information. MoinMoin is a Python WikiClone that allows you to easily set up your own wiki, only requiring a Web server and a Python installation.
Release Notes: This release fixes serious security issues.
O2OO reads sensor data from a car into a sqlite database and generates graphs of the data so you can analyze the behavior of the car. It can also retrieve the location from a GPS module and store it in the same database, then can create a Google Maps KML-file, coloring the route line with a color depending on a sensor reading.
Release Notes: PDFs now contain a map for each sensor (like the Google Maps output). This release adds support for ELM327 devices which are WiFi-enabled.
LEAF is a secure, feature-rich, customizable embedded Linux network appliance for use in a variety of network topologies. Although it can be used in other ways, it's primarily used as a Internet gateway, router, firewall, and wireless access point.
Release Notes: This is a maintenance release fixing a major flaw in dnsmasq.
giv, the G(reat|tk|NU) Image Viewer, is an image and hierarchical vector viewer. It was designed especially for scientific vision and computational geometry.
Release Notes: This is a minor bugfix release which fixes a bug in the display of binary tiff images. It is also the first release to provide a 64-bit Windows binary installer.

Arping is an ARP level ping utility. It's good for finding out if an IP is taken before you have routing to that subnet. It can also ping MAC addresses directly.
Release Notes: This release prints "Timeout" when pings time out, fixes a bug with -w for fractions of seconds, works around a bug in libpcap on Solaris, and implements gratuitous ARP (-U).
Kiwix is an offline reader for Web content. It was designed for use with Wikipedia, but is potentially suitable for all HTML content. It supports the ZIM format, a highly compressed open format with additional meta-data. It is intended for use in schools, universities, and libraries which can't afford broadband Internet access. It features a full text search engine, bookmarks and notes, an HTTP server, PDF/HTML export, a user interface in more than 80 languages, tabbed navigation, and an integrated content manager and downloader.
Release Notes: This is a new release candidate with a lot of bugfixes and a new HTTP server feature for all systems.
XRoar is a cross-platform emulator for the Dragon 32, Dragon 64, and Tandy CoCo computers, all originally released in the early '80s. The emulator runs under Unix-like operating systems (including Mac OS X) and Windows, with older versions available for handhelds like the Nintendo DS and GP32.
Release Notes: This release adds Hitachi 6309 emulation, VDG sub-scanline rendering improvements, an optional "Becker port" in RSDOS, timing fixes, and keyboard matrix ghosting simulation.
Tpda3 is a classic desktop database application framework and runtime. It supports the Firebird, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and CUBRID RDBMS.
Release Notes: This release adds a feature to set a default application from the CLI or a dialog, important changes in the configuration files, and other small miscellaneous fixes and changes.
Eric is a full featured Python and Ruby editor and IDE, written in Python. It is based on the cross platform Qt GUI toolkit, integrating the highly flexible Scintilla editor control. It is designed to be usable as an everyday quick and dirty editor as well as being usable as a professional project management tool, integrating many advanced features that Python offers the professional coder. Eric includes a plug-in system, which allows easy extension of the IDE functionality with plug-ins downloadable from the net. Current stable versions are Eric4 based on Qt4 and Python 2 and Eric5 based on Python 3 and Qt4.
Release Notes: This release adds bugfixes.
GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.
Release Notes: --shebang-wrap now makes it possible to parallelize scripts by putting "parallel" in the shebang line (the first #! line in scripts). --delay adds a delay after starting each job (useful to avoid raceconditions and thundering herd problems). --results now uses "/" as a separator instead of TAB, and thus creates subdirectories. OpenBSD CPU detection is now performed. niceload --sensor allows negative numbers to signify a lower number, meaning the limit is lower. niceload --prg suspends a named program which is already running. niceload multiple --pid suspends process ids which are already running.
