About: AgileWiki is meant to create software systems which are fluid,
easily configured and can be reorganized on-the-fly to meet ever changing
requirements. It includes a COW-based database, the Rolonics programming

Changes: With the addition of the listWellKnow and tree queries, COODBMS
now has a minimum workable set of queries. See sample 22 for details.
Write access control is the final piece in the access control capability.
Access control is fast, scalable, extensible, and simple, working at the
operation and Rolon level. Write access to a Rolon can be disallowed or
restricted to a single user or user group. Journals can not be updated
directly, providing a reliable audit trail; configuration data updates are
restricted to the AdminGroup; and user account updates are restricted to
the account owner.

[014] - DarGUI 0.2.0
  by Malcolm Poole (http://freshmeat.net/users/pastorescoces/)
  Mon, Mar 10th 2008 15:46

System :: Archiving :: Backup

About: DarGUI is a graphical frontend for the Disk ARchiving utility (DAR)
that aims to make it easier and quicker to perform common backup tasks
using DAR. It uses the GTK+ library, which is installed on most Linux
distributions, so usually the only additional dependency is DAR. DarGUI

than conceal them, and to help users to learn how DAR works so that they
can use it from the command line when necessary. It is written in Pascal
using FreePascal and the Lazarus IDE.

Changes: Files in archives are now listed alphabetically. The logging of
DarGUI operations has been improved. A memory leak related to allocating
names for batch files has been fixed. A dar function for isolating a
catalogue from the archive has been added. A dar function for comparing
archive contents with the filesystem has been added. README files have

server included.

Changes: A new security hole where users could log in without a valid
password was fixed.

[032] - Nagios Appender 1.2.2
  by jar lyons (http://freshmeat.net/users/jarbaby/)
  Mon, Mar 10th 2008 07:17

System :: Logging
System :: Monitoring
System :: Systems Administration

About: NagiosAppender is a pure Java implementation of a Log4j appender
that allows the developer/administrator to send log records to Nagios via
the NCSA server (using the push model). It provides a simple solution for
Nagios administrators whose only alternative is to implement a polling
function against against the output of a standard Log4j appender. The
log4j configuration file provides for user-specific mappings between Log4j
levels and Nagios levels. The configuration file also allows the user to
select whether to set the Nagios 'service' and 'host' programmatically via
Log4j MDC, or via the config file. Later releases support XOR encryption.

Changes: Documentation on how to setup a maintenance free configuration
for monitoring a virtual backroom was added.

Software Development

About: NoMachine NX is a fast terminal server and desktop virtualization
system based on the X11 protocol. NX is an order of magnitude faster than
VNC or X11 and can run on bandwidth as narrow as 10 kBit/sec. In addition,
NX translates and embeds the MS Windows Terminal Server and VNC protocols
into X/NX, enabling users to compress and accelerate remote Windows and
VNC sessions. The NX project provides a suite of libraries and X11
proxying agents implementing efficient compression and optimized transport
of X11, SMB, IPP, HTTP, and arbitrary protocols like audio and video over
the Internet.

Changes: This package provides fixes for avoiding possible VNC and RDP
session failures due to NX Builder saving session settings in the wrong
format in its backend.

Internet :: WWW/HTTP :: Dynamic Content
Internet :: WWW/HTTP :: Site Management

About: P4A (PHP For Applications) is a RAD and object oriented PHP
framework for building event-driven stateful Web applications. It features
tableless HTML, accesskey support, transparent AJAX support, auto data type
recognition, UTF-8 support, advanced i18n/l10n support, handheld "zero
code" support, "zero code" printing via advanced CSS2, and PEAR
integration.

Changes: A few modifications were done on P4A_DB_Source so now you can add
joins without selecting any column from the joined table. A mystical bug in
P4A_DB_Source::getRowPosition() with MySQL (in which the same query called
twice returns two different results) was found again and patched again. A
bug with P4A_ERROR_Handler() was solved. P4A_Error_Handler was rewritten
to be used in AJAX calls too. P4A_Object::__call() method now uses
trigger_error() instead of p4a_error() when a method is not found.

  Mon, Mar 10th 2008 09:39

Database
Software Development :: Libraries :: Java Libraries
Text Processing :: Markup :: XML

About: XMLToaster is an XML-to-Relational mapping tool. If you already
know SQL, its learning curve is extremely shallow, and writing a mapping
to generate XML from database tables or to save XML into a database is
made easy with a powerful mapping language with SQL-like syntax. It
supports complex mappings, and you can map either plain XML or XML
schemas.

Changes: This release significantly simplifies XML-to-database scripts.
These can now use an SQL-like syntax rather than an XML mapping file (the
old XML format is still supported). This release is compatible with the
MySQL 5.1.x JDBC driver. There are other small bugfixes.
