Seed7 2014-04-20Seed7 is a general purpose programming language.
It is a higher level language compared to Ada,
C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and
operators can be declared easily. Functions with
type results and type parameters are more elegant
than a template or generics concept. Object
orientation is used when it brings advantages and
not in places when other solutions are more
obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts
of other programming languages, it is generally
not considered as a direct descendant of any other
remoteEncFs 0.1.0remoteEncFs supports some use cases for using a remote filesystem encrypted with encfs locally. Such filesystems can be created with Boxcryptor Classic. In particular, remoteEncFs supports local synchronization and mounting local or remote copies.
libquickmail 0.1.18libquickmail is a library intended to give C/C++ developers a quick and easy way to send email from their applications. It supports multiple To/Cc/Bcc recipients and multiple MIME attachments without size limitation. It uses libcurl for SMTP communication, but a light version is also included without the libcurl dependancy. The library can also be used to just create a multipart MIME message body. It also comes with a command line application for sending mail (with optional attachments).
LiVES 2.2.4LiVES is a simple to use yet powerful video effects, editing, conversion, and playback system aimed at the digital video artist and VJ. It runs under Linux, BSD, Mac OS X/Darwin, IRIX, and openMosix. It is frame and sample accurate, can handle almost all types of video, and is fully extendable through plugins and the included plugin builder tool. It can also be controlled remotely using OSC.
libcsdbg 1.28libcsdbg is a C++ exception stack tracer. When an exception is thrown, caught, and handled, libcsdbg offers the tools to create and process the exception stack trace, the path the exception has propagated up the call stack, unwinding it up to the section were it was handled. The traces are detailed with demangled function signatures and additional addr2line information (the source code file and line from which each function was called). libcsdbg can use all the well-known objective code file formats (a.out, elf, coff, ecoff, etc.) and can easily be used as the base for your own instrumentation code. libcsdbg transparently loads the symbol tables of the chosen dynamic libraries and of the executable, demangles function symbols to complete signatures, and binds function names to runtime addresses (even for the DSO symbols).
OpenStego 0.6.1OpenStego is a tool for steganography. It also supports optional encryption of data before embedding. It uses a plugin-based architecture, and support for various steganographic algorithms can be added using external plugins.
Asymptote 2.25Asymptote is a powerful descriptive 2D and 3D vector graphics language for technical drawing, inspired by MetaPost but with an improved C++-like syntax. It provides for figures the same high-quality level of typesetting that LaTeX does for scientific text. Asymptote is a programming language as opposed to just a graphics program. It can exploit the best features of script (command-driven) and graphical user interface (GUI) methods. High-level graphics commands are implemented in the language itself, allowing them to be easily tailored to specific applications.
storebackup 3.5storeBackup is a backup utility that stores files on other disks. It's able to compress data, and recognize copying and moving of files and directories (deduplication), and unifies the advantages of traditional full and incremental backups. It can handle big image files with block-wise changes efficiently. Depending on its contents, every file is stored only once on disk. Tools for analyzing backup data and restoring are provided. Once archived, files are accessible by mounting file systems (locally, or via Samba or NFS). It is easy to install and configure. Additional features are backup consistency checking, offline backups, and replication of backups.
icctext 20140420icctext is a sim ple command line utility that lets you edit text tags in an ICC profile.
reposurgeon 3.10A tool for editing version-control repository history, reposurgeon enables risky operations that version-control systems don't want to let you do, such as editing past comments and metadata and removing commits. It works with any version control system that can export and import git fast-import streams, including git, hg, bzr, CVS, and RCS. It can also read Subversion dump files directly, and can thus be used to script production of very high-quality conversions from Subversion to any supported DVCS.
Fileevent 1.2.0Fileevent is a rules-based utility that matches files based on simple patterns and macros and performs actions on them. These actions are typically used to transfer or rename the file ready for further processing. This utility is particularly useful for batch processing environments where files to load/process might arrive on an adhoc basis. Fileevent allows them to be transferred elsewhere, retrieved from elsewhere, or renamed.
Code Manager 2 1.4.4Code Manager 2 (CM2) has been designed to provide a complete source code control system for a set of developers sharing the same working directory tree. It offers developers and organizations many advantages. It provides a comprehensive set of features and has been designed to be very easy to pick up and use to manage projects. It works across Unix and Windows platforms, requiring little configuration and only a limited number of dependencies. It provides facilities at both an individual source file level and project level. The project level facilities include facilities to copy or merge whole projects or generate and apply change-sets. It uses an efficient repository format to handle large files and large numbers of files and directories. It provides facilities to generate packages from the project in a number of formats (including TP2, Slackware, APT, RPM, Autopackage, SVR4, and InstallP).
KDE-Services 1.9-6KDE-Services extends the features of the Dolphin File Manager right-click menu in the KDE graphical environment. It allows you to play and convert between several video formats, extract audio from movies and convert them to MP3 or FLAC, convert audio to MP3 or FLAC, securely send a file or directory to Mailx as an email, send files to Thunderbird as attachments, burn and checksum ISO images, execute scripts and applications, get low-level information on video files, build ISO images from folders, replace text, search, SSH, use Midnight Commander, use system, network, and backup/restore tools, use Samba, extract subtitles from MKV video, multiplex subtitles into MPEG-2 videos, and work with YouTube, DVDs, multimedia, GPG. You can add a timestamp prefix to a filename or directory name. A paranoid shredder, an HTTP publisher, graphic tools, RPM package tools, Xorg configuration, and Dropbox tools are included.
AutoArchive 1.0.2AutoArchive is a utility to help create backups more easily. The idea of the program is that all essential information for creating a backup is in a single file. It can use ‘tar’ for creating archives, has a command line interface, and supports incremental backups.
