deco is a command-line program that, together with the deco-archive package, allows you to extract dozens of popular archive file formats. It has a consistent interface ("deco 1.tar.bz2 2.rar 3.zip 4.flac 5.deb") and consistent behavior (never deleting archives after extraction and extracting relative to the current working directory, just verbosely enough, all unless explicitly requested otherwise). It creates an extraction directory if there is more than one file or directory at the archive top level, and it is able to fix strange permissions.
Release Notes: A crash when handling archive formats that always extract to a subdirectory was fixed. A grammatical mistake in the usage message and a (still) misleading error message was corrected. Minor code cleanup and optimization. The compiler optimization level was set to -O2 instead of -O1 in the default CFLAGS.
The Jamulus software enables musicians to perform real-time jam sessions over the Internet. There is a Jamulus server which collects the audio data from each Jamulus client, mixes the audio data, and sends the mix back to each client.
Release Notes: The software is renamed from "llcon" to "Jamulus". It supports an instrument picture on the mixer fader label (additional to the existing text). An optional server welcome message can be shown on a connection to the server. The source code is now compatible with Qt version 5. All text that is sent to/received from the server is now UTF-8 coded (allowing special characters, etc., to be used in the mixer fader text or chat messages).
Arg_parser is an argument parser that follows POSIX and GNU conventions for command line arguments. There exist C++ and C versions of Arg_parser. The C++ version is implemented as a C++ class, while the C version is implemented as a single struct plus associated functions. Both are simpler, easier to use, and safer than 'getopt_long'. The C++ version of Arg_parser can also parse options from configuration files.
Release Notes: Minor fixes.
