Version 2.64-1 of moreutils has been uploaded and should be coming
soon to a distribution server near you.

This is an update to the latest upstream release.

Moreutils is a "collection of the unix tools that nobody thought to
write long ago when unix was young."

From the upstream website,

Probably the most general purpose tool in moreutils so far is sponge(1), which
lets you do things like this:

    % sed "s/root/toor/" /etc/passwd | grep -v joey | sponge /etc/passwd

There are lots more listed below, and I'm always interested to add more to the
collection, as long as they're suitably general-purpose, and don't duplicate
other well-known tools.

- chronic: runs a command quietly unless it fails
- combine: combine the lines in two files using boolean operations
- errno: look up errno names and descriptions
- ifdata: get network interface info without parsing ifconfig output
- ifne: run a program if the standard input is not empty
- isutf8: check if a file or standard input is utf-8
- lckdo: execute a program with a lock held
- mispipe: pipe two commands, returning the exit status of the first
- parallel: run multiple jobs at once
- pee: tee standard input to pipes
- sponge: soak up standard input and write to a file
- ts: timestamp standard input
- vidir: edit a directory in your text editor
- vipe: insert a text editor into a pipe
- zrun: automatically uncompress arguments to command
