spectrwm is a minimalistic tiling window manager that tries to stay out of the way so that valuable screen real estate can be used for much more important stuff. It has sane defaults and does not require one to learn a language to do any configuration. It was written by hackers for hackers and it strives to be small, compact, and fast.
Release Notes: This release adds quite a few little fixes (but they add up). It avoids a free on an uninitialized variable by setting optval to NULL, fixes fparseln flags to remove escape characters in the result, fixes an issue with rapid window crossing events being ignored, validates bound spawn programs after conf is loaded, fixes move/resize to bail if the window is destroyed, and fixes the bar clock not getting updated during periods of inactivity.

Tor-ramdisk is a uClibc-based micro Linux distribution whose only purpose is to host a Tor server in an environment that maximizes security and privacy. Tor is a network of virtual tunnels that allows people and groups to improve their privacy and security on the Internet. Security is enhanced in tor-ramdisk by employing a monolithically compiled GRSEC/PAX patched kernel and hardened system tools. Privacy is enhanced by turning off logging at all levels so that even the Tor operator only has access to minimal information. Finally, since everything runs in ephemeral memory, no information survives a reboot, except for the Tor configuration file and the private RSA key, which may be exported and imported by FTP or SSH.
Release Notes: For the i686 and x86_64 ports, Tor was updated to 0.2.3.25, libevent to 2.0.20, and the kernel to 3.6.7 plus Gentoo's hardened-patches-3.6.7-1.extras. The MIPS port also incorporates these changes, but for this architecture, libevent was updated to 2.0.21, while the kernel was kept at vanilla 3.2.5.
