Kodos 2.4.0 has been released and is available at:
Changes since 2.3.1:
- The widget used for the "Group" tab has been changed to allow for
the proper display of matches that span multiple lines.
- Minor bug fixes
Kodos is a regular expression designer, tester, debugger and validator
that allows a developer to create and modify regular expressions
against a test string. The intuitive grahpical interface allows the
developer the ability to modify the regular expression (regex) and to
see the effects against their test string in real-time.
- Matches can be easily viewed and each match can be seen distinctly
- Visually perform search and replace operations on a string.
- Regex groups and named groups are clearly displayed
- Sample source code is shown so even python developers new to regular
expressions can quickly add the produced regular expressions to their
- Ability to load and save your test cases
- Kodos relies on PyQt for the GUI elements.
- Source (tgz, zip, srpm) and binary (rpm, exe) versions available.
Naja is a download manager and a website grabberl written in Python/wxPython.
You can add some plugins (newsreader, newsposter, client FTP, client WebDAV)
and take control of your downloads from your office. Naja supports proxy (HTTP,
HTTPS, FTP, SOCKS v4a, SOCKS v5), and use some authentication methods.
The downloading maybe achieved by splitting the file being downloaded
into several parts and downloading these parts at the same time (HTTP,
HTTPS, FTP). Donwload speeds are increased by downloading the file
from the mirrors sites, when the sites propose it.
Cheksums (CRC32, MD5, SHA1)
newsreader, newsposter (uue, yEnc)
CGI & WebDAV Server
basic and digest authentication for client and server

Where: Carnegie Institute of Washington at Stanford University
Agenda: Multi-threaded Anti-Spam Shareware Application
Speaker: Dennis Reinhardt, DAIR Computer Systems
This is progress and status report on SpamAI, a commercial anti-spam
shareware application, implemented in Python and first reported to
BayPiggies in Feb. 2002. The technical approaches and experience with
packaging, updating, and supporting a ready to run Python distribution are
discussed. This app hosts multiple client and server threads having both
email and web protocols. The internal thread and process tree to support
this are reviewed. as well as the object and module architecture.
Dennis Reinhardt has been designing computer hardware and software since
graduating from MIT with dual degrees in 1965 and 1966. He was previously
a Senior Architect at Intel and is now owner of DAIR Computer Systems. He
was chair of the Hot Chips 8 conference and of the Santa Clara Valley
