About: LIBOL is an opensource library with a family of stateoftheart online learning algorithms for machine learning and big data analytics research. The current version supports 16 online algorithms for binary classification and 13 online algorithms for multiclass classification. Changes:In contrast to our last version (V0.2.3), the new version (V0.3.0) has made some important changes as follows: • Add a template and guide for adding new algorithms; • Improve parameter settings and make documentation clear; • Improve documentation on data formats and key functions; • Amend the "OGD" function to use different loss types; • Fixed some name inconsistency and other minor bugs.

About: Pyriel is a Python system for learning classification rules from data. Unlike other rule learning systems, it is designed to learn rule lists that maximize the area under the ROC curve (AUC) instead of accuracy. Pyriel is mostly an experimental research tool, but it's robust and fast enough to be used for lightweight industrial data mining. Changes:1.5 Changed CF (confidence factor) to do LaPlace smoothing of estimates. New flag "scoreforclass C" causes scores to be computed relative to a given (positive) class. For twoclass problems. Fixed bug in example sampling code (sample n) Fixed bug keeping oldstyle example formats (terminated by dot) from working. More code restructuring.

About: JProGraM (PRObabilistic GRAphical Models in Java) is a statistical machine learning library. It supports statistical modeling and data analysis along three main directions: (1) probabilistic graphical models (Bayesian networks, Markov random fields, dependency networks, hybrid random fields); (2) parametric, semiparametric, and nonparametric density estimation (Gaussian models, nonparanormal estimators, Parzen windows, NadarayaWatson estimator); (3) generative models for random networks (smallworld, scalefree, exponential random graphs, Fiedler random graphs/fields), subgraph sampling algorithms (random walk, snowball, etc.), and spectral decomposition. Changes:JProGraM 13.2  CHANGE LOG Release date: February 13, 2012 New features:  Support for Fiedler random graphs/random field models for largescale networks (ninofreno.graph.fiedler package);  Various bugfixes and enhancements (especially in the ninofreno.graph and ninofreno.math package).

About: JNCC2 is the opensource implementation of the Naive Credal Classifier2 (NCC2), i.e., an extension of Naive Bayes towards imprecise probabilities, designed to deliver robust classifications even on [...] Changes:Initial Announcement on mloss.org.

About: xgboost: eXtreme Gradient Boosting It is an efficient and scalable implementation of gradient boosting framework. The package includes efficient linear model solver and tree learning algorithm. The package can automatically do parallel computation with OpenMP, and it can be more than 10 times faster than existing gradient boosting packages such as gbm or sklearn.GBM . It supports various objective functions, including regression, classification and ranking. The package is made to be extensible, so that user are also allowed to define there own objectives easily. The newest version of xgboost now supports distributed learning on various platforms such as hadoop, mpi and scales to even larger problems Changes:
