[002] - Asymptote 1.28
  by John Bowman (http://freshmeat.net/users/jcbowman/)
  Thu, May 10th 2007 02:37

Education
Multimedia :: Graphics :: Editors :: Vector-Based
Scientific/Engineering

About: Asymptote is a powerful descriptive 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.

Changes: TeX error handling was improved. A dvipsOptions configuration
variable was added. A recently introduced bug in the XDR routine xinput
was fixed. Compilation under the upcoming GCC 4.3 release is now
supported. Non-global PDF animations, where each frame is separately
scaled and written to a file, were implemented. Reading from standard
input now works correctly even in the absence of a working readline
library. A build problem under Fedora Core 5 was fixed. Parallel builds
are now supported.

[003] - Backup Manager 0.7.6 (Development)
  by Alexis SUKRIEH (http://freshmeat.net/users/sukria/)
  Thu, May 10th 2007 11:30

About: Backup Manager is a tool for generating archives easily. It is
designed for those who don't want an obfuscated tool for backing up their
system. It can make tar, tar.gz, tar.bz2, and zip archives, can perform
incremental backups, and can upload archives to remote hosts with FTP,
SSH, or RSYNC. It can be run in a parallel mode with different
configuration files. The configuration file is simple to understand. The
backup process can also be customized thanks to hook scripts.

Changes: This release comes after a couple of months of development. It
provides a major security fix for the MySQL backup method, many bugfixes,
and better documentation.

Internet
Internet :: Proxy Servers
Internet :: WWW/HTTP :: Site Management

About: BalanceNG is a modern software IP load balancing solution. It is
small, fast, and easy to use and setup. It offers session persistence,
different distribution methods (Round Robin, Random, Weighted Random,
Least Session, Least Bandwidth, Hash, Agent, and Randomized Agent) and a
customizable UDP health check agent in source code. It supports VRRP to
set up high availability configurations on multiple nodes. It supports
SNMP, integrating the BALANCENG-MIB with Net-SNMPD. It integrates pcap
packet dumping for debugging purposes and allows the implementation of a
"transparent forensic logging bridge".

Changes: A "show instance" has been included in the service snapshot file
generation. An unnecessary prompt has been removed in the output from "bng
auxctl" when called by "non-tty" applications.

[005] - BetterAWstats 0.11 ALPHA
  by tokyoahead (http://freshmeat.net/users/tokyoahead/)
  Thu, May 10th 2007 00:18

Internet :: Log Analysis

About: BetterAWstats is an Web server log analysis tool that provides
better statistics from the data provided by AWstats. It is not a
replacement for AWstats. The most significant features are rolling months
and days, and support for new types of charts (pie, max/min, etc.).

Changes: Unknown browsers and unknown OS statistics are supported. An
additional horizontal layout was added. The site appearance was improved.
The maximum value for charts can be now set through the configuration
file. The "Unknown" OS icon, number formats for stats report, and
date-fields for Sum, Avg, and "Others" were fixed. For security, direct
calling of backend files is now prevented.

[009] - DBIx::Perlish 0.25
  by Grrrr (http://freshmeat.net/users/Grrrr/)
  Thu, May 10th 2007 05:55

About: The DBIx::Perlish module provides the ability to work with
databases supported by the DBI module using Perl's own syntax for the four
most common operations: SELECT, UPDATE, DELETE, and INSERT. By using
DBIx::Perlish, you can write most of your database queries using a
domain-specific language with Perl syntax. However, the module is not
intended to replace all use of SQL in your program. The DBIx::Perlish
module quite intentionally neither implements nor cares about database
administration tasks like schema design and management.

Changes: A bug concerning inherited database handles was fixed.

About: Easymacs is an easy-to-learn, one-size-fits-all configuration for
new users of GNU Emacs. It sets up key bindings that conform to a common
denominator of the Gnome/KDE/OS X/Microsoft Windows human interface
guidelines, and provides function-key bindings for other powerful Emacs
features. It is fully documented, and the new user can productively edit
text right away, without going through the Emacs tutorial. Many
commonly-used functions can be accessed without having to learn the
"chords" or multiple keystrokes that Emacs uses by default.

Changes: A number of small updates and additions were made. At a minimum,
the forthcoming Emacs 22 is required.

[018] - Hilbert II 0.03.04
  by m31 (http://freshmeat.net/users/m31/)
  Thu, May 10th 2007 02:34

Documentation
Education
Internet

About: The Goal of Hilbert II, which is in the tradition of Hilbert's
program, is the creation of a system that enables a working mathematician
to put theorems and proofs (in the formal language of predicate calculus)
into it. These proofs are automatically verified by a proof checker.
Because this system is not centrally administered and enables references
to any location on the Internet, a world wide mathematical knowledge base
could be built. Any proof of a theorem in this "mathematical web" could be
drilled down to the very elementary rules and axioms. To make it more than
a huge number of logical correct formulas, it also contains information in
"common mathematical language". Think of an incredible number of
mathematical textbooks with hyperlinks, and each of its proofs could be
verified by *Hilbert II*. For each theorem, the dependency of other
propositions, definitions, and axioms could be easily derived.

Changes: This release has a GUI window for transforming LaTeX formulas
into QEDEQ XML. Behind the scenes a huge refactoring took place. The
project has now a kernel structure. The kernel can be initialized and
offers methods for loading a module from the file system or out of the
Internet. The kernel buffers modules and keeps a log. The kernel is not
finished yet but the basic structure is there.

  Thu, May 10th 2007 06:46

Internet :: WWW/HTTP :: Dynamic Content
Internet :: WWW/HTTP :: Site Management
Software Development :: Libraries

About: Mac's PHP MVC Framework is a MVC framework with an in-built
templating engine that comes bundled with many PHP and JavaScript
libraries so that you can focus on creating the application you want. It
generates search engine friendly URLs right out of the box.

Changes: An 'error_pages' folder was to the root of the installation,
which controls the display of 404 pages in regards to controllers and
functions. A new 'loadError(errorFileName)' function was added to the
'$master' object, which loads a file from the 'error_page' folder.
'$displayErrors' and '$errorLevel' variables were added to the
clsConfig.php class to control the error reporting and error display of
the server. loadModal was renamed to loadModel. The function names are now
not case sensitive.

[027] - MultiTail 5.0.3
  by Folkert van Heusden (http://freshmeat.net/users/fvh/)
  Thu, May 10th 2007 02:37

System :: Logging
System :: Monitoring
Utilities

About: MultiTail lets you view one or multiple files like the original
tail program. The difference is that it creates multiple windows on your
console (with ncurses). Merging of 2 or more log files is possible. It can
also use colors while displaying the log files (through regular
expressions) for faster recognition of what is important. It can also
filter lines (again with regular expressions). It has interactive menus
for editing given regular expressions and deleting and adding windows. One
can also have windows with the output of shell scripts and other software.
When viewing the output of external software, MultiTail can mimic the
functionality of tools like 'watch'.

Changes: A bogus error message when aborting 'write script' was removed. A
color scheme was added for the BOINC project. A problem where not all
command line settings were written when executing the 'write script'
functionality was fixed.

creates source files. It is based on glib, libxml, GTK+, cairo, pango, and
libgda.

Changes: The parser for the "source" attribute of text was added, so you
can have a text with fixed string, database values, and special values
(such as date/time or page number) mixed together. Integration with Gtk
printing was implemented, so you can print directly to a printer.

Framemaker drawings. Similarly, sequence diagrams are specified using
declarative pic macros and compiled with the GNU plotutils pic2plot
program into a PNG, PNM, (pseudo) GIF, SVG, AI, Postscript, CGM, FIG, PCL,
HPGL, Regis, or TEK drawing.
