GeoGebra Classic 6.0.598 - Interactive mathematic software (was GeoGebra).

12 hours 35 minutes ago

GeoGebra Math Apps (was GeoGebra) is a dynamic mathematics software for all levels of education that joins arithmetic, geometry, algebra, and calculus. It offers multiple representations of objects in its graphics, algebra, and spreadsheet views that are all dynamically linked.

While other interactive software (e.g., Cabri Geometry, Geometer's Sketchpad) focus on dynamic manipulations of geometrical objects, the idea behind GeoGebra is to connect geometric, algebraic, and numeric representations in an interactive way. You can do constructions with points, vectors, lines, and conic sections, as well as functions, and change them dynamically afterwards. Furthermore, GeoGebra allows you to directly enter and manipulate equations and coordinates. Thus you can easily plot functions, work with sliders to investigate parameters, find symbolic derivatives, and use powerful commands like Root or Sequence.

PingPlotter 5.18.2 - Graphical Traceroute Software.

12 hours 41 minutes ago

PingPlotter helps solve network problems. It's a network diagnostic tool that graphs latency and packet loss between your computer and a target. Visualizing the information accelerates your troubleshooting process and helps build a case if you ever need to convince someone a problem exists on their end.

  • Access through web browser: The web interface broadcasts PingPlotter across the web. It's useful for sharing information and managing the program remotely.
  • As many targets as you need: PingPlotter Pro tests hundreds of targets at once. Summary graphs are available for organizing targets and assessing performance at a glance.
  • Test from another device's perspective: Remote agents ping from locations beyond your computer so you can analyze network performance over multiple locations.
  • Select your network interface card: Directly control which network cards PingPlotter Pro uses for any trace. Compare multiple network connections in real time, test primary and secondary NICs in parallel, and monitor multi-NIC servers.
  • View jitter graph: Jitter is the amount of variation in latency/response time, in milliseconds. The metric is useful when troubleshooting VoIP and other streaming services.
  • See network performance history: Timelines graph latency and packet loss history. In PingPlotter Standard, timelines hold as much time as you need and can be opened for any hop.
  • Automatically run in the background: Running as a service launches PingPlotter when your machine starts up. From there, the program starts tracing and continues even if you log out.

Note: the price reflected in the listing is that of the standard version. If you would like to view other pricing options, go here.

Version 5.18.2: Improvements:
  • You can now uninstall a CloudConnect Agent from a machine remotely through the CloudConnect tab in the web UI (Agent must be on version 5.10.4 or above)
  • (Web UI) Improved scrolling through Timeline Graphs and graph data when using a trackpad or Apple Magic Mouse
  • (Web UI) Improved alert setup to better communicate when an alert is ready to be finished versus when it needs more information
  • (Web UI) Users with Summary permissions are no longer able to toggle Final Hop Only on a trace
  • Fixed a bug that created a premature datastore for .PP2 files that had not been fully imported
  • Fixed several bugs related to "index out of bounds" and "null reference" errors
  • (Web UI) Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the Focus dropdown to stop updating
  • (Web UI) Fixed a bug that sometimes caused Timeline Graphs of offline CloudConnect traces to appear blank
  • (Web UI) The graph color legend on target windows now show the proper values for different settings configurations
  • (Web UI) Zooming in or out on a Timeline Graph will now center on the cursor location as the 'zoom point'
Known Issues:
  • (Web UI) When sorting targets by a column, stopping a trace will cause sorting to return to default (by target name)
  • (Web UI) The menu option to convert a trace to Final Hop Only appears on Agent traces. However, you cannot currently convert an Agent trace to Final Hop Only
