libdwarf-dwarfdump 20140413

Mon, 2014-04-14 13:00
libdwarf reads and/or writes DWARF debugging information in Elf object files. dwarfdump uses libdwarf to read object files and print the DWARF content in a readable fashion. libdwarf implements the DWARF2 (and later) standard by providing function interfaces that abstract away many DWARF implementation details (the writer code only emits DWARF2 so far). The source also includes implementations of a few tree search (tsearch) algorithms (balanced, red-black, and binary).

Release Notes: Libdwarf now follows the DWARF2 standard properly in reading DW_FORM_ref_addr. This is critical for properly reading DWARF emitted by the Go language compiler in a 64bit pointer object. The original DWARF2 standard is on dwarfstd.org, so it's been removed from the libdwarf source to save space in the release.

Lunzip 1.5

Mon, 2014-04-14 10:43
Lunzip is a decompressor for lzip files. Its small size makes it well suited for embedded devices or software installers that need to decompress files but do not need compression capabilities. Lunzip is able to decompress any lzip file using as little memory as 50 kB.

Release Notes: The new option "-u, --buffer-size", which activates a "low memory" decompression mode able to decompress any file using as little memory as 50 kB, irrespective of the dictionary size used to compress the file, has been added. File date, permissions, and ownership are now copied like "cp -p" does. This version is portable to very old hardware. It has been compiled and tested on a laptop with a 486 processor and 4MiB of RAM.

Release Notes: This release contains support for the new features in the 3.14 kernel, bugfixes, documentation updates, and more. Among the more prominent new features are hybrid IPv4/IPv6 tables, queue load balancing, and support to change packet and conntrack meta data. This release additionally fixes all known issues on big endian platforms and should be fully functional.

ACE 6.2.5

Mon, 2014-04-14 06:24
The ADAPTIVE Communication Environment (ACE) is an object-oriented (OO) C++ framework that helps you develop and deploy high-performance networked applications faster and with less code to write and maintain. ACE is especially useful for systems that use network and/or inter-process communications and that take advantage of multithreading. While the ACE source code is free, that's not the only way you save money with ACE. ACE's wrappers and higher-level patterns help you develop your software quickly and portably, helping you to complete your projects on time and within budget.

Release Notes: Adds the ability to build RPMs for just ACE. Adds support for Embarcadero C++BuilderXE5 using bcc32. When Intel C++ 2013 SP1 Update 2 is used with C++11 enabled as compiler feature, now ACE_HAS_CPP11 will be defined. Fixes several boundary bugs in the ACE RLE Compressor. Changes to TAO: new implementation repository features; a new tao_imr kill command to signal an otherwise unresponsive server; and a new tao_imr link command to identify groups of POAs that share a server. ImR is better able to avoid errantly starting multiple server instances.

Barman for PostgreSQL 1.3.1

Mon, 2014-04-14 05:30
Barman (backup and recovery manager) for PostgreSQL is an administration tool for disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers. It allows remote backups of multiple servers in business-critical environments and helps DBAs during the recovery phase. Barman's most-wanted features include backup catalogs, retention policies, remote recovery, archiving, and compression of WAL files and backups.

Release Notes: Introduces support for concurrent backup using physical file based copy through rsync, in conjunction with pgespresso, a new open source extension available for PostgreSQL 9.2 and 9.3. Adds the "barman diagnose" command, which prints important information about the system and the configuration of Barman. Fixes an important bug on recovery that was affecting only those few users having tablespaces created inside the PGDATA directory. This behaviour was introduced in version 1.3.0. Minor bugs have also been fixed.
