ConEmu – Windows console with tabs

ConEmu-Maximus5 is a Windows console window enhancement (local terminal emulator), which presents multiple consoles and simple GUI applications as one customizable tabbed GUI window with various features. Initially, the program was created as a companion to Far Manager, my favorite shell replacement. Today, ConEmu can be used with any other console application or simple GUI tools (like PuTTY for example). ConEmu is an active project, open to suggestions. Disclaimer #1. ConEmu is not a shell, so it does not provide “shell features” like tab-completion, command history and others. ConEmu does not provide remote access (SSH/Telnet/…) too. ConEmu is advanced console window (local terminal) where you can run any shell or remote access client of your choice. However, some of these features placed in RoadMap. Disclaimer #2. If you notice lags while executing batches or commands (from cmd/git/bash/etc.) just uncheck option “Inject ConEmuHk”.

Manjaro Testbuilds

Manjaro Linux is a Linux Distribution based on Arch Linux. It is still under development, but an initial testing release is already available. Our aim is to create a light linux distribution, which is simple, up-to-date, fast and user friendly and which follows the K.I.S.S principle. We are using the Desktop Environment Xfce, which is light but powerfull. Arch Linux is a great GNU/Linux distribution, but installing and configuring it, needs some time and experience. So we improved Arch Linux. We created a more user friendly installation process, wrote bash scripts for managing graphic drivers, configured xfce with some useful functions and a GUI settings manager is also planed. Just try it. 😉

Revival of Weekly Featured Projects and Project of the Month Voting

As you may have noticed, in the past few months, we had suspended featuring projects on a weekly basis, and selecting our project of the month based on these featured projects. This was done as we had some kinks in our process that we needed to fix, but we’re now ready to start up this process again.

In the interest of transparency, we’d like to share how this process is going to work moving forward.

Weekly Featured Projects

First of all is the selection process for weekly featured projects. Each week, we will select nine projects to be featured on our front page. These projects are selected from the pool of projects that have had a new file release and have had some degree of popularity. This list is then further reduced by remove selections that have been recently featured (so we don’t have the same set each week) and those that are very new (we want to feature projects with a certain degree of maturity).

Project of the Month Voting and Selection

Each month, from the pool of projects featured in the past month, we will then select the nine best performing projects by downloads to make up our Project of the Month poll. In the past, we used an external polling service, however, many users have commented that they’d much rather just use their SourceForge account to vote, and we’re listening. Starting with this month’s poll, we will be using a forum on our site to conduct the vote. Another major advantage of using such a method is that if there’s ever any issue with the tabulation of votes, we’re much better prepared to investigate any problems ourselves.

The votes will be tallied using our own script. This will utilize the Allura platform’s API to parse the votes, and will be released as Open Source for anyone that wants to use it.

So, that’s the tour of how we currently envision this process working. That said, as we will continue to try and refine this process and we reserve the right to make changes as necessary.

This Week’s Featured Projects and this Month’s Vote:

And finally, we’d like to introduce our featured projects for this week, and due to the special circumstances of how we’re restarting this process, for this month, these projects will also constitute our candidates for our February’s Project of the Month. For future months, candidates will be selected from a larger pool as per above.

Vote here for the SourceForge Project of the Month for February 2014

Google Map Gps Cell Phone Tracker

*** IMPORTANT UPDATE *** Now includes clients for IOS, Android, Windows Phone and Java Me/J2ME cell phones. I have fully updated this project and I hope you will find it useful. Please try it out and rate this application. In short the project allows you to track cell phones periodically. For instance every minute or every five minutes. You can watch the cell phone being tracked in real time and you can store and reload routes easily. You have the choice of two server stacks. Either using asp.net and sql server or using php and mysql. Historically, devs have downloaded the asp.net server project 2 to 1 over the php project. I have included both now in the same download but you only need to use one. If you need help, please go to: http://www.websmithing.com/gps-tracker/ thanks Nick
