2017-11-21: pidgin-2.10.11-2 (Multi-protocol instant messenger client)
Pidgin is a chat program which lets you log in to accounts on multiple 
chat networks simultaneously. 
Pidgin is a portable, multi-protocol instant messenger client descended from
the former gaim project.  

Pidgin is compatible with the following chat networks out of the box:
AIM, ICQ, Google Talk, Jabber/XMPP, MSN Messenger, Yahoo!, Bonjour, 
Gadu-Gadu, IRC, Novell GroupWise Messenger, QQ, Lotus Sametime, SILC, 
SIMPLE, MXit, MySpaceIM, and Zephyr. It can support many more with plugins.

Pidgin can log in to multiple accounts on multiple IM networks simultaneously. 
This means that you can be chatting with friends on AIM, 
talking to a friend on Yahoo Messenger, and sitting in an IRC channel 
all at the same time.

Pidgin supports many features of the various networks, 
such as file transfer, away messages, and typing notification. 
It also goes beyond that and provides many unique features. 
A few popular features are Buddy Pounces, which give the ability to 
notify you, send a message, play a sound, or run a program when a 
specific buddy goes away, signs online, or returns from idle; 
and plugins, consisting of text replacement, a buddy ticker, 
extended message notification, iconify on away, spell checking, 
tabbed conversations, and more.

2017-11-18: libtool2-2.4.6-3 (Shared library build helper, v2.x)
GNU libtool knows how to build shared libraries on a wide range of
platforms. It is designed to work with autoconf to add painless shared
library support to GNU packages.

libtool-2.x is a major change from libtool-1.5. On darwin shared
libraries built with this version will have only one symlink
libfoo.dylib -> libfoo.2.dylib, not two links like on branch-1-5.
There are many many major changes in this version, and very likely
some bugs, please let me know if you come across any.

2017-11-17: bowtie2-2.3.3.1-1 (Ultrafast memory-efficient short read aligner)
An ultrafast and memory-efficient tool for aligning sequencing reads 
to long reference sequences. It is particularly good at aligning reads 
of about 50 up to 100s or 1,000s of characters, and particularly good 
at aligning to relatively long (e.g. mammalian) genomes. 

Bowtie 2 indexes the genome with an FM Index to keep its memory footprint
small: for the human genome, its memory footprint is typically 
around 3.2 GB. Bowtie 2 supports gapped, local, and paired-end alignment modes.
