Icon Apache 2.4.41

The Apache HTTP Server Project is a collaborative software development effort aimed at creating a robust, commercial-grade, featureful, and freely-available source code implementation of an HTTP (Web) server. The project is jointly managed by a group of volunteers located around the world, using the Internet and the Web to communicate, plan, and develop the server and its related documentation. This project is part of the Apache Software Foundation. In addition, hundreds of users have contributed ideas, code, and documentation to the project. This file is intended to briefly describe the history of the Apache HTTP Server and recognize the many contributors.

Sell a man a fish when he really needs to know how to fish himself, and you're ripping him off. Then too, there are times when he needs you to throw him a line.
CLIX ('command line interface for OS X') makes it easier to harness the power of Unix. It becomes both a fish to buy and a series of lessons in how to fish, and ultimately can become a handy work of reference.
It doesn't try to rip you off - it tries to teach you, so you become more independent and don't need that line thrown at you all the time.
The CLIX package includes a starter command database file with over 1,500 (one thousand five hundred - yes, you read it right) system commands for investigating your system status, for cleaning out your junk files, for getting at secret settings for the Dock, the Finder, and all of your most used applications - and all sorted for easy access, any way you wish.
You also gain access for the first time to the tens of thousands of files in your BSD subsystem.
If it can be done in OS X, it can be done in CLIX; if it can't be done in CLIX, it can't be done.
And most importantly, the CLIX system is infinitely extensible: you can add to it at any time, and in any way you please.

Icon LAME 3.100

LAME is a high quality MPEG Audio Layer III (MP3) encoder licensed under the LGPL.
LAME development started around mid-1998. Mike Cheng started it as a patch against the 8hz-MP3 encoder sources. After some quality concerns raised by others, he decided to start from scratch based on the dist10 sources. His goal was only to speed up the dist10 sources, and leave its quality untouched. That branch (a patch against the reference sources) became Lame 2.0, and with Lame 3.81 all of dist10 code was replaced, making LAME no more only a patch.
The project quickly became a team project. Mike Cheng eventually left leadership and started working on tooLame, an MP2 encoder. Mark Taylor became leader and started pursuing better quality in addition to increased speed. He can be considered the initiator of the LAME project in its current form. He released version 3.0 featuring gpsycho, a new psychoacoustic model he developed.
In early 2003 Mark left project leadership, and since then the project has been lead through the cooperation of the active developers (currently three individuals).
Today, LAME is considered the best MP3 encoder at mid-high bitrates and at VBR, mostly thanks to the dedicated work of its developers and the open source licensing model that allowed the project to tap into engineering resources from all around the world. Both quality and speed improvements are still happening, probably making LAME the only MP3 encoder still being actively developed.

Many systems and network administrators also find it useful for tasks such as network inventory, managing service upgrade schedules, and monitoring host or service uptime. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics. It was designed to rapidly scan large networks, but works fine against single hosts.

In 1998, Martin Roesch wrote an open source technology called Snort, which he termed a "lightweight" intrusion detection technology in comparison to commercially available systems. Today that moniker doesn't even begin to describe the capabilities that Snort brings to the table as the most widely deployed intrusion prevention technology worldwide. Over the years Snort has evolved into a mature, feature rich technology that has become the de facto standard in intrusion detection and prevention. Recent advances in both the rules language and detection capabilities offer the most flexible and accurate threat detection available, making Snort the "heavyweight" champion of intrusion prevention.

In contrast, tcpflow reconstructs the actual data streams and stores each flow in a separate file for later analysis.
