About: mdadm is a tool for creating, maintaining, and monitoring Linux "md" device arrays, also known as Software RAID.
Changes: A significant new feature is auto assembly, which causes mdadm to search for components of md arrays and assemble what it finds. This works in conjunction with a new --homehost option, which can tag arrays to tell which host they should be assembled on. Also, if no DEVICE list is given, "DEVICE partitions" is assumed. The configuration file can now provide a "mailfrom address". A copy of /proc/mdstat is included with email from --monitor mode. Assorted other updates were made.
About: Jlog is a small and fast weblog software. It's really easy to install and use for beginners.

The --wait-for command line argument was added. Several internal bugs were fixed. More of the client library and the CSIM interface were flushed out. All standard functionality was tested.
About: Apache SpamAssassin is an extensible email filter that is used to identify spam. Once identified, the mail can then be optionally tagged as spam for later filtering. It provides a command line tool to perform filtering, a client-server system to filter large volumes of mail, and Mail::SpamAssassin, a set of Perl modules allowing Apache SpamAssassin to be used in a wide variety of email systems.
Changes: DKIM support was added. Razor2 support was re-enabled by default. A Perl bug which caused intermittent taint-related crashes was worked around. Lots of other minor bugs were fixed.
About: Jitterbit is an integration tool for designing, configuring, testing, and deploying integration solutions. It supports many document types and most standards-based protocols, including XML, Web Services, popular databases, text files, FTP, HTTP, and others. The integration server runs on both Windows and Linux and is configured using a Java-based user interface that is designed to make integration quick, easy, and intuitive to complete.

Changes: The major addition to this version is the inclusion of pre-defined integrations, called Jitterpaks. Jitterpaks are XML documents that encapsulate all the parts of an integration operation, including the source, target, document definitions, and data transformations. Users can develop and publish Jitterpaks or import previously created Jitterpaks to get a jump start in connecting a variety of applications, databases, and other data points. Jitterpaks can be shared with the community on Jitterbit's forums.

Logging drivers to dispatch logs to mail, text files, on screen, or to any destination for which you write a driver. The format in which the log is displayed can be modified.
Changes: Mayor code restyling was done. MessageFactoryInterface.php is no longer in use, so you have to extend the base NmnMessageFactory.php class in order to create your own message factory. NmnMessageFactory.php now gets its outputTemplate from an XML attribute. DriverInterface.php is no longer in use, so you have to extend the base NmnLoggerBaseDriver.php class to create your own drivers to dispatch logs to new media.
About: libgeier is a library to send gathered tax declarations data to the German inland revenue offices (using the Elster2/Coala-approach).
