December has been a busy month until now and probably will continue like this…
But today is Christmas, a good day to give some new packages to my visitors
Recently version 1.6 of lbench was released, a benchmark utility.
And last week version 220.127.116.11 of snort, the Intrusion Detection software, and version 0.5 of daq, the [...]
Earlier this month Zarafa released version 6.40.3 of their Collaboration Platform, fixing several bugs and introducing a few new features. For more detailed info, check the ChangeLog on the Zarafa forum.
I already submitted the new SlackBuilds for the server product and the webaccess module to SlackBuilds.org and uploaded the packages to my site.
The third Beta release for LibreOffice 3.3.0 happened about a week ago, but only now I had some time to resubmit the SlackBuilds and create the packages.
As with the previous Beta2, I created the packages from the binary RPM distributions and uploaded packages for the base LibreOffice suite and for the en_GB, pt_BR and nl [...]
Another week has passed, so it’s time for some news on nHex-Ed
The third alpha release of nHex-Ed offers several new features, bringing it close to what I had in mind for the first “real” release of this little hex editor.
The following items are new or improved:
Completely rewritten menu routines, with shortcuts and direct-access [...]
Version 0.4.3b of Fritzing was released already some time ago, but only now I had some time to take a look and create the new packages

It brings the following improvements:
New Image tool bar with actions similar to the Linux console panel
New improved, bigger status bar with CPU selector
If a suspend file is found, an option to resume is offered
Here is a screenshot of the new version, running the standard [...]

I needed [...]
The beginning of this month a new version of Snort was released – 18.104.22.168. The companion Data Acquisition library (daq) was also upgraded to version 0.3.
I updated my SlackBuilds and installed the new versions on my server. I waited a bit before releasing the packages as there had been some reports on a new “Unknown [...]
Work continues on my little hex-editor…
Although a lot still needs to be done, I decided to release a second alpha version, as the first one has been downloaded quite a few times already.
This second test version brings:
A “find” function (still not the way I want it, but for now it’s working)
“Goto” to jump directly to [...]
After my post about the “Unknown record type 104″ problem in Barnyard2, I received several e-mails recently about a new error that started popping up:
ERROR: Unknown record type read: 110
I had not seen this one myself, but did some quick investigating and found out that it is a new record type in Snort 2.9.0
This new [...]
