[008] - CLISH 0.7.2
  by Graeme McKerrell (http://freshmeat.net/users/gmckerrell/)
  Fri, Mar 7th 2008 10:37

System :: Shells

About: CLISH is a modular framework for implementing a CISCO-like CLI on a
Unix system. Arbitrary command menus and actions can be defined using XML
files. This software handles the user interaction, and forks the
appropriate system commands to perform any actions.

Changes: This release contains almost a year of bugfixes and updates. The
inability to paste into the shell should now be addressed, and the default
values for "SELECT" and "PATTERN" types are now translated correctly. The
lub_heap memory manager is no longer compiled in by default, which should
mean CLISH compiles out of the box for more platforms. This release also
includes a couple of submitted patches. There is no guarantee of their
correctness or otherwise; they are simply included for people to use if
desired.

  Fri, Mar 7th 2008 00:24

Multimedia :: Sound/Audio :: Analysis
System :: Archiving :: Compression
System :: Filesystems

About: Freedup finds and eliminates duplicate files by linking them, and
thus reduces the amount of used disk space within one or more file
systems. By default, hardlinks are used on a single device, symbolic links
when the devices differ. A set of options allows you to modify the methods
of file comparison, the hash functions, the linking behavior, and the
reporting style. You may use batch or interactive mode. Freedup usually
only considers identical files, but when comparing audio or graphics
files, you may elect to ignore the tags.

Changes: This release removes leftover debugging statements. It also
provides HTML documentation with the RPM file. Additionally, the
installation preparation for the new Web interface can be tested. But be
aware there is currently no usable Web interface to start freedup.

toolkit.

Changes: This release contains fixes for two security vulnerabilities. It
is highly recommended that you upgrade. One of the issues also affects
older versions. There are instructions online on how to update one file to
disable the page where the exploit is possible, which should be easier for
any production instances of GeoServer than a full upgrade.

  by Jiri Pittner (http://freshmeat.net/users/pittner/)
  Fri, Mar 7th 2008 04:28

Scientific/Engineering :: Mathematics
Software Development :: Libraries

About: The LA library provides a C++ vector and matrix class with an
interface to BLAS and LAPACK linear algebra libraries and a few additional
features. Templates (including some simple template metaprogramming) are
employed in order to achieve generic applicability of the algorithms. In
particular, iterative methods suitable for sparse matrices can be applied
to your custom matrix class, which does not need to provide any explicit
storage of the matrix elements (only matrix times vector operation has to
be implemented).

Changes: The library has already been in use, but not every function and
method has been thoroughly tested yet. Only a very limited subset of
LAPACK routines is presently interfaced. The selection was determined
solely by the needs of a particular research in quantum chemistry.

[031] - MITRE Honeyclient Project 1.0.2
  by kindlund (http://freshmeat.net/users/kindlund/)
  Fri, Mar 7th 2008 13:02

Internet :: WWW/HTTP :: Browsers
Internet :: WWW/HTTP :: Indexing/Search
Security

About: A 'honeypot' is designed to detect server-side attacks. In
contrast, a 'honeyclient' is designed to detect client-side attacks.
Specifically, a honeyclient is a dedicated host that drives specially
instrumented applications to access remote servers to see if those servers
are behaving in a malicious manner (by compromising the client).
Honeyclients can proactively detect exploits against client applications
without known signatures. This framework uses a client-server model with
SOAP messaging as the primary communication method, and uses the free
version of VMware Server as a means of virtualizing the client
environment.

Changes: Real-time integrity checking (via a modified version of
Capture-HPC). Drone database / Web service support: a Ruby on Rails
application to keep track of malware and centralize URL processing across
different honeyclients. Improved stability. Improved firewall support.
Complex pages (including external IFRAMES) now render completely within
the honeyclient.

  Fri, Mar 7th 2008 16:26

Software Development :: Libraries
System :: Logging

About: Pantheios is a C/C++ logging API library. It offers an optimal
combination of complete type-safety, very high efficiency, genericity, and
extensibility. It is simple to use and extend, highly portable (platform
and compiler independent), and it upholds the C tradition of only paying
for what you use. Pantheios supports logging of message statements of
arbitrary complexity, consisting of heterogenous types. Pantheios supports
filtering of log messages based on severity level.

Changes: A new front-end, fe.null, was added that proscibes the output of
all statements. This is primarily useful for testing. Several aspects of
the auto-generated documentation were improved, including some minor
restructuring, and improving the coverage over the components added in
recent beta releases.

Artistic Software
Multimedia :: Graphics :: Editors :: Vector-Based

About: Shoebox is a pure Python version/rewrite of Nodebox. It can read
scripts in the Nodebox language and output images in SVG, PostScript, PDF
or PNG format using the Cairo rendering engine. Comparing to graphics
coding alternatives like Nodebox and Processing, Shoebox is lighter and
more flexible thanks to not depending on an interface engine for
rendering, thus making it potentially suitable for CPU-conscious uses like
server applications. Unlike Processing and Nodebox though, Shoebox can only
output still images for the time being. It can be run stand-alone on a
shell or as part of a Python program.
