TzClock News:

22/Feb/2013: After many delays the latest version is now available. Very little has change on the clock. Now that I have a Raspberry Pi you will find support for it on the download page. The current version is 3.0.3.

22/Jun/2012: Following the release of Fedora 17 and Ubuntu 12.04 it is time to release a new version of the clock. Version 3 has been back ported to GTK2 so that most of the new features are available to Gnome 2 desktops. The text has been marked to make translation possible. The current version is 3.0.2.

17/Nov/2011: Following the release of Fedora 16 and Ubuntu 11.10 it is time to release a new version of the clock. With desktops moving to GTK3 the clock has been ported to the newer API. The current version is 3.0.1 and for older desktops there is a 2.8.1 version.

1/Feb/2008: TzClock is now part of the Fedora distribution and can be installed with "yum install tzclock".

6/Aug/2007: TzClock is an XWindows GTK+ graphical Clock that can display the time around the world. It supports multiple faces showing different time zones. There is a stopwatch function that is accurate to a tenth of a second, plus there are many other nice features for you to discover. (Screenshot)

Gauge News:

22/Feb/2012: The Gnome weather API has been changed so much that it no longer works, because of this the Gauge has changed the API that it uses. From now on if you want weather information you will need to register with World Weather Online for a free key. The gauge will the read the weather from this site. The current version is 2.0.3.

22/Jun/2012: There are not so many changes to the Gauge. The main ones being that the text is marked for translation and some of the gauges have more information on the tool tips. Version 2 is now compatible with Gnome 2. The current version is 2.0.2.

17/Nov/2011: The Gauge continues to improve since the last version. There are some new gauges and improvements to the existing ones. Like the clock it has been ported to GTK3 for newer distributions. The current version is 2.0.1 and for older desktops 1.1.1.

9/Feb/2011: The Gauge has improved a lot since the last version. Currently you can monitor: Battery, CPU, Memory, Network, Sensors (Fan/Temp) and Weather. Although not all these option are available on older distributions. The current version is: 1.0.1.

1/June/2010: The Gauge works along side TzClock and looks much the same. It provides a simple gauge for things like CPU use, sensors and weather information. This is an early prototype so it does have some rough edges.

CopyClip News:

17/Nov/2011: For GTK3 desktops there is now a standalone version due the loss of panel applications. The new and old versions are still compatible.

23/Mar/2009: The second version has some improvements, including keeping the destination menu on the screen even when the icon is near the edge. Packages are available for most up to date distributions.

12/Sep/2008: This is a Gnome applet that allows you to copy the contents of the clipboard between machines. At the moment only text can be transfered. There are a number of controls to keep the link secure.

DirUtils News:

17/Nov/2011: You can now view the selinux contexts within ndir with a -Dc command line option.

9/Feb/2011: Improved the display of user rights.

17/Nov/2009: The DirUtils are a set of utilities based around a common directory listing library. The utilities include ndir which (in my opinion) is an easier to use yet configurable replacement to ls.
