data is stored in an encrypted XML file, and the client must provide the
key to modify it. There is a library included to make patching
applications to use the daemon easier. The library also supports gpg-agent
for password/key retrieval.

Changes: pwmd and libpwmd were split into their own projects.

[034] - prerex 3.8
  by Bob Tennent (http://freshmeat.net/users/rdtennent/)
  Sat, Feb 10th 2007 05:49

Education
Multimedia :: Graphics :: Editors
Text Processing :: Markup :: TeX/LaTeX

About: prerex is an interactive (command-line) editor and a LaTeX macro
support package that can be used to create very attractive and readable
prerequisite charts. A patch for kpdf provides a prerex-enabled PDF
viewer. A prerequisite chart is a network of course boxes linked by
prerequisite and co-requisite arrows.

Changes: The editor again attempts to display a PDF during editing, but
now terminates the viewer process on exit. The editor now allows
latex-dvips-ps2pdf processing as an option, warns about quitting with
unpasted cuts, and allows automatic re-processing to be suppressed after
an individual command. The prerex style file now explicitly requires
version 1.10 or later of pgf.

  Sat, Feb 10th 2007 14:36

Information Management
Internet
Security

About: Sleutel is a multi-platform password manager that is written using
the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP). Its goal is to manage password/ID
pairs for accessing Web sites and to provide an example RCP application.
It features configurable password generation, labeling of password entries
(a la GMail), an intuitive UI following the Eclipse model, merge
capabilities, and the ability to track usage count and dates of password
entries. Sleutel is the Dutch word for key.

Changes: Create/update dialogs were added for password entries and labels.
Double clicking on an item opens the update dialog for the selected item.
The PreferenceInitializer class was added, which presets "use dialog on
create" to true. The import and export buttons were removed from the
toolbar until import and export are implemented. The Eclipse build
environment was upgraded to 3.3M4.

[039] - Spey 0.4.0
  by David Given (http://freshmeat.net/users/dgtaocouk/)
  Sat, Feb 10th 2007 23:49

Communications :: Email :: Mail Transport Agents

About: Spey is an SMTP proxy that sits between your existing mail server
and the outside world, blocking spam using a greylisting technique. It is
simple, lightweight, easy to install and configure, requires minimal
changes to your existing mail server, is completely independent of which
mail server you're using, and extremely effective. The author's spam
intake has dropped from over a hundred messages a day to about 5. It uses
the Sqlite database library as a backend.

Changes: The major new features are greet-pause support, SMTP AUTH
proxying support, the ability to whitelist by IP address, TLS support, and
DNS-based RBL checking. The code no longer depends on ucontext() and so
avoids issues with early glibc Linux 2.4 systems.

Changes: A bug occurring when a file has been deleted, set to ignored,
then re-added was fixed.

[044] - USBSink 0.3.0
  by Marko Anastasov (http://freshmeat.net/users/anastasov/)
  Sat, Feb 10th 2007 14:16

Desktop Environment :: Gnome
System :: Archiving
System :: Filesystems

About: USBSink is a GNOME program for automatic file synchronization over
USB. It is designed for users of removable drives, such as flash drives or
external hard disks. In USBSink, you define a task associated to a
particular USB drive, and then have a complete automation of data
transfers. With file monitoring and hardware detection features, USBSink
is able to respond and act according to relevant events on the desktop.

Changes: The files being transferred are filtered with black and white
lists, defined with regular expression entries or other lists. A simple
editor for file lists was created. Files are transferred asynchronously.
Only transfer initiation and end are logged. The bug regarding a directory
being a source file on an unmounted drive was fixed. An icon was drawn and
a .desktop entry was written. i18n support and a Serbian translation were
added. Other translations are now possible. An application manual was
written.
