  Mon, Mar 31st 2008 13:10

Software Development :: Testing

About: benerator is a framework for creating realistic and valid
high-volume test data, used for testing (unit/integration/load) and
showcase setup. Metadata constraints are imported from systems and/or
configuration files. Data can imported from and exported to files and
systems, anonymized, or generated from scratch. Domain packages provide
reusable generators for creating domain-specific data such as names and
addresses, internationalizable in language and region. benerator is
strongly customizable with plugins and configuration options.

Changes: This release can generate XML files directly from XML schema
files. A custom generator configuration can be added in XML schema
annotations. The region concept has been abstracted to a dataset concept.
The core data model has been completely redesigned for supporting a type
definition concept. With improved QA, several bugs were found and fixed.
New generator classes and name packages have been added for India, Brazil,
Canada, Spain, Australia, Austria, Japan, Slovenia, and Israel.

[007] - Crate Game Engine 20080330
  by Jason Turner (http://freshmeat.net/users/lefticus/)
  Mon, Mar 31st 2008 09:09

Software Development :: Libraries

About: The Crate Game Engine is a game engine that is designed to make

  Mon, Mar 31st 2008 06:55

System :: Archiving :: Backup
System :: Archiving :: Mirroring
System :: Installation/Setup

About: DIAP is a set of Bash shell scripts to set up a system using three
backup nodes either between sites (e.g. between offices and homes) or over
WANs. The application provides a decentralized, self-contained and managed
storage utility. The emergence of a DVTL (Distributed Virtual Tape
Library) is the end result. Nodes can be dedicated to storage or used for
existing services over unused bandwidth. The scripts are a toolkit to help
users set up their own project, and to help the writer improve the system
and work in user space over SSH.

Changes: A timeout variable was added to rsync jobs. Source files are not
removed for the first month. When "tab_b.sh --remove-source-files deleted"
is executed, a full backup is ensured to remain on node A for recovery.
Minor changes were made.

  by m31 (http://freshmeat.net/users/m31/)
  Mon, Mar 31st 2008 13:08


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. It also contains information in "common mathematical

Changes: Now QEDEQ modules may be removed within the GUI, and all
dependent modules will change their state accordingly. Within the LaTeX
parts, the new command "\qref" is supported. It references to a Node from
the local or an imported QEDEQ module. UTF-8 and ISO-8859-1 are now
correctly parsed, and error lines are translated accordingly. The
mathematical XML files have fewer errors and contain more (still informal,
but very close to formal) proofs. Under the hood, a lot of refactoring took

reside. An access control mechanism is included to control which users on
which machines may access a server.

Changes: faxmail now supports ISO-8859-1 characters by default. Client
hfaxd connections no longer die sometimes. TimeOfDay consideration when
batching was fixed. A problem with va_list reuse when running clients in
verbose mode was fixed. Improvements were made to client FIFO cleanup.
bin/dictionary is now used in wedged emails. faxrcvd now uses sendmail -t
instead of placing the to-addresses on the command-line.

[032] - PowerDNS Recursor 3.1.5
  by ahu (http://freshmeat.net/users/ahu2/)
  Mon, Mar 31st 2008 07:02

Internet :: Name Service (DNS)

About: With a small codebase, the PowerDNS Recursor is an advanced
resolver currently serving the DNS resolving needs of over 40 million
Internet connections. Besides high performance (using kqueue or epoll,
over 50 thousand qps on commodity hardware), it provides advanced
anti-spoofing measures. In addition, the program caches server performance
and timeouts, making it both network and user friendly. It also has
built-in hooks for making graphs with rrdtool, providing insight into
nameserver performance.

Changes: Modest performance improvements of around 20% were made. This
version includes a cryptographically secure random generator, fixing a
security issue where PowerDNS could be spoofed. A number of smaller and
larger issues were fixed. Importantly, compatibility with recent gcc
versions was restored. The new IPv6 root-servers are now picked up
automatically. Finally, domains can now be forwarded to multiple IP
addresses and ports.

[033] - QTads 1.7
  by Nikos Chantziaras (http://freshmeat.net/users/realnc/)
  Mon, Mar 31st 2008 06:43


About: QTads is a graphical, non-HTML interpreter for Tads games. Both
Tads 2 as well as Tads 3 games are supported. It uses Trolltech's Qt
library, which means it's highly portable. It has some nice features, like
fullscreen mode, text justification, margins, and font anti-aliasing. It
fully supports Unicode in Tads 3, ISO Latin character mapping files in
Tads 2, and the full set of Multimedia Tads character entities in both
Tads 2 and 3 (like "curly" quotes and typographical dashes).

Changes: Tads virtual machines were updated to 2.5.10/; 64-bit
platforms should now be fully supported. The number of turns the player
can undo in Tads 3 games has been increased. Now you can undo more than
100 turns. QTads is now able to parse the meta-information resource
embedded in a game. For this, a new menu entry has been added ("Game->Game
Information"). The interpreter will now correctly restore the window
coordinates and size of the previous session even when starting in
fullscreen mode. Other fixes were made.
