Devhelp 0.9.2 released
Imendio is happy to give you a new version of Devhelp. Devhelp is a developer tool for browsing API documenation for GNOME.
This release adds three new translations (nb, gu, mk), it also features updates to 11 other translations. Nickolay V. Shmyrev sent a patch to support searching for sub strings, for example "gtk new" will give you all gtk constructors. Johan Svedberg was kind enough to send a patch for adding accelerators for back and forward.

Gnomoradio is a peer to peer music playing system, based on Creative Commons licenses. It has the ability to find, share, recommend, and play songs that are freely available.
Version 0.14 migrates audio output to libao and closes the audio device when music is paused. It also has an improved http server, and it can now download songs without RDF descriptions.
Version 0.14.1 fixes a bug that some people were experiencing downloading files, and it fixes a few bugs when scanning all local music on startup.

Gcalctool is the default GNOME desktop calculator.
It has Basic, Financial and Scientific modes. Internally it uses multiple precision arithmetic to produce results to a high degree of accuracy.
This release is targeted for the GNOME 2.9 development release. We are releasing early to get as much feedback as possible on the new features that have been added:
Note that gcalctool now requires the Gtk+ libraries that comes with GNOME 2.6 or later in order to build.
Changes since the last gcalctool version in the v5.5.X series: (5.5.0).
For testing purposes, the default mode is currently to use Arithmetic Operator Precedence. If this version of gcalctool is going into GNOME 2.10, it is still to be decided whether it will remain the default there.
We are looking for folks to give this new version of gcalctool a good testing and to report back any problems found as soon as possible. As with all new code, it is expected there will be a few bugs lurking that need to be found and fixed.

What is Blogfish?Blogfish is the memepool.
Blogfish is social networking meets evolutionary software meets peer-to-pier networking. Blogfish is best eaten wrapped in newspaper, with salt and vinegar. Blogfish is the fin end of the wedge.
More prosaically, blogfish is a panel applet for your Gnome desktop. It allows you to spread your blog, website URL or random thoughts in the form of small, internet-enabled, RSS-parsing sea creatures. Good memes survive; bad ones are voted down and go belly up.

Simple peerIf you want to run a blogfish peer but without Gnome GUI dependencies - e.g. to run on a server - try downloading "branch-simple-peer" from CVS, like so:
cvs -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/blogfish login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/blogfish co -r branch-simple-peer blogfish
