New Ports of the Week #21 (May 24)

Contributed by merdely on from the three-day-weekend-fun dept.

There are 7 new ports for the week of May 18 to May 24:

Some ports had updates that users should be aware of.

Ports are listed in the order they were committed to the tree:

  • sysutils/stan
    • Stan (Stream Analyzer) is a console application that analyzes binary streams and calculates several useful statistical information from the observed data. It features statistical, pattern and bit analysis. Stan has been designed as a "swiss-knife" for first steps in reverse engineering and cryptographic analysis.
  • audio/p5-gnupod
    • GNUpod is a collection of Perl scripts which allow you to manipulate and use your iPod.
  • converters/p5-JSON-XS
    • JSON::XS converts Perl data structures to JSON and vice versa. Its primary goal is to be correct and its secondary goal is to be fast. To reach the latter goal it was written in C.
  • x11/gnome/ekiga
    • Ekiga (formely known as GnomeMeeting) is an open source VoIP and video conferencing application for GNOME. Ekiga uses both the H.323 and SIP protocols. It supports many audio and video codecs, and is interoperable with other SIP compliant software and also with Microsoft NetMeeting.

      It still needs some love but having it in-tree will ease people testing. Some things are known not to be working yet... Network part was intensively tested using the H.323 protocol through an OpenBSD gnugk proxy, with Ekiga running OpenBSD/amd64 and a Polycom v500 as endpoints.
  • net/ssvnc
    • The Enhanced VNC Viewer (SSVNC: SSL/SSH VNC Viewer) provides for remote access to VNC displays using the standard protocol and various extensions including those used by TightVNC, UltraVNC, RealVNC and x11vnc providing for features such as dynamic screen resizing, server-side scaling, blocking input devices on the server, and low colour modes. Many of these can now be set from the popup menu.

      (and it's much faster than tightvnc-viewer)
  • net/nfdump
    • The nfdump tools collect and process netflow data (v5, v7 and v9) on the command line. They are part of the NfSen project.

      nfcapd (netflow capture daemon) reads the netflow data from the network and stores the data into files. Automatically rotate files every n minutes (typically every 5 minutes). nfcapd reads netflow v5, v7 and v9 flows transparently. You need one nfcapd process for each netflow stream.

      nfdump (netflow dump) reads the netflow data from the files stored by nfcapd. Its syntax is similar to tcpdump. If you like tcpdump you will like nfdump. Displays netflow data and can create lots of top N statistics of flows IP addresses, ports etc in whichever order you like.

      nfreplay (netflow replay) reads the netflow data from the files stored by nfcapd and sends it over the network to another host.

      A web front-end, NfSen, is available on SourceForge.

      nfprofile (netflow profiler) is a sub-package that reads the netflow data from the files stored by nfcapd, filters the netflow data according to the specified filter sets (profiles) and stores the filtered data into files for later use.
  • net/unbound
    • Unbound is a validating, recursive, and caching DNS resolver. It is designed as a set of modular components, so that also DNSSEC (secure DNS) validation and stub-resolvers (that do not run as a server, but are linked into an application) are easily possible.

Port update notes:

  • security/stunnel:
    Update to stunnel v4.24 which fixes a security issue in the OCSP functionality. The bug allows a revoked certificate to successfully authenticate. Any installations with OCSP enabled should be upgraded ASAP. Other users are not affected.
  • textproc/libxslt:
    Update includes a SECURITY FIX for SA30315.
  • devel/pwlib:
    FLAVORS were merged in and removed to make sure we don't end up in weird situations when pwlib (and some dependent pkgs) are rebuilt while already installed. Other ports affected and updated: net/gnugk, net/opal, net/openh323, telephony/asterisk, telephony/ophone and x11/gnome/ekiga.
  • www/py-django:
    Update to 0.96.2 which includes a SECURITY FIX (XSS in admin interface).
