GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.

Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) is a framework and set of services for supporting system-level performance monitoring and performance management. It provides a unifying abstraction for all of the interesting performance data in a system, and allows client applications to easily retrieve and process any subset of that data using a single API. A client-server architecture allows multiple clients to monitor the same host, and a single client to monitor multiple hosts. Archive logging and replay are integrated so that a client application can use the same API to process real-time data from a host or historical data from an archive.
Release Notes: Long option support (e.g. --host) is being added. So far, pminfo, pmprobe, pmstore, pmstat, pmval, and the small demo program, pmclient, have been updated. There are extensions to the time specification syntax (use of natural language words to request a time offset, for example) and there are two new PMDAs - an NFS client PMDA, and a compressed swap (zswap) PMDA. Usability features in pmchart have been the main GUI focus, in particular around the use of multiple hosts.
iCaption is a soft subtitle editor, utilizing timeline based editing. Soft subs are files stored separately from the video file, rendered in real-time as the video plays. iCaption is extremely simple to use and allows you to create, open, edit, and save SubRip and YouTube files.
Release Notes: The audio and video core of iCaption has been re-written to take advantage of OSX 10.9 Mavericks' AVFoundation, dropping support for earlier versions of OS X. Drag and drop support was added along with a quicker way to add subtitles immediately after the current. The new AllSubs search API is now used.
libcsdbg is a C++ exception stack tracer. When an exception is thrown, caught, and handled, libcsdbg offers the tools to create and process the exception stack trace, the path the exception has propagated up the call stack, unwinding it up to the section were it was handled. The traces are detailed with demangled function signatures and additional addr2line information (the source code file and line from which each function was called). libcsdbg can use all the well-known objective code file formats (a.out, elf, coff, ecoff, etc.) and can easily be used as the base for your own instrumentation code. libcsdbg transparently loads the symbol tables of the chosen dynamic libraries and of the executable, demangles function symbols to complete signatures, and binds function names to runtime addresses (even for the DSO symbols).
Release Notes: This is a maintenance version that fixes bugs, rectifies features, unifies the API, adds useful methods, and enforces code uniformity. Buffered output stream classes were further enhanced and made even more reliable and easy to use.
