This week's software announcements from FreshMeat II are available in an Alphabetical listing or Sorted by license.
As part of the FreshMeat II site redesign, packages can now be listed in multiple categories. This will substantially change the former "by section" option as multiple packages will be listed multiple times. We hope that in the future the "by section" option, and potentially other options made possible by the new site, will be available to LWN readers.
