Gmane
From: Martyn Russell <martyn-bhGbAngMcJvQT0dZR+AlfA <at> public.gmane.org>
Subject: ANNOUNCE: tracker 0.7.2 released
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.freedesktop.tracker
Date: Friday 9th October 2009 15:02:32 UTC (over 7 years ago)
tracker 0.7.2 is now available for download from:
http://download.gnome.org/sources/tracker/0.7/

c2e2b87c97547e43cc87ca3006b8d67d  tracker-0.7.2.tar.gz

What is it?
===========
All-in-one indexer, search tool and metadata database.

Where can I find out more?
==========================
You can visit the project web site:

   http://www.tracker-project.org/

What's New?
===========

   General:
   * Added support for AM_SILENT_RULES (used for producing nice build
     output), see http://live.gnome.org/GnomeGoals/NicerBuilds
   * Removed filters/ - they are no longer used, was for full text
     search abilities. We now do this in tracker-extract.
   * Simplify CFLAGS/LIBS for applications and generally all Makefiles.

   Ontology:
   * Added average{audio|video}bitrate for nmm:Video. This allows the
     audio and video to have different bit rates in the same URN.
   * Added properties for newly added MTP.
   * Added properties fourCC and waveformat for MTP.
   * Added properties to NMM to support MTP (nmm:lyrics,
     mmm:skipCounter, nmm:isCropped, nmm:isColorCorrected).
   * Added nmm and mto prefixes.
   * Updated mtp:ScanType to subclass nie:InformationElement allowing
     nie:description on instances.
   * Renamed nmm:album to nmm:videoAlbum to be consistent with
     nmm:audioAlbum.

   libstemmer:
   * Fix API to return const/non-const more consistently.

   libtracker-common:
   * Fixed TrackerConfigFile to make it an abstract type object.
   * Fixed storage (HAL) APIs to return const/non-const more
     consistently.
   * Fixed tracker_path_evaluate_name() so we use the HOME environment
     variable with g_getenv() instead of g_get_home_dir(). This fixes
     issues seen with NFS mounted home directories.
   * Fixed storage (HAL) APIs to normalise directories returned.
   * Fixed timezone test case for tracker-type-utils.
   * Improve documentation.

   libtracker-data:
   * Fixed virtual property tracker:uri.

   libtracker-miner:
   * Added "process-pool-limit" to TrackerMinerFS, this allows us to
     process more than one file at once. Previously each file was
     extracted in tracker-extract and stored in tracker-store
     sequentially. Now data is extracted while it is being stored if
     process-pool-limit is > 1. Now it is set to 10.
   * Added support for deleting recursively when a directory is removed.
   * Updated the documentation.
   * Removed "application" parameter in tracker_miner_pause(), since
     it now uses g_get_application_name() or TrackerMiner::name
     internally.
   * Update vtable function process_file() for TrackerMinerFS into a
     signal to be consistent with the rest of the API.
   * Fixed pkg-config file to include dbus-glib.
   * Fixed moving items between two monitored directories. Was
     unsupported.
   * Fixed g_timer_destroy() warning with timer != NULL.

   tracker-store:
   * Updated the Dia documentation for trackerd to detail how
     tracker-store works.
   * Updated SQL generated for FTS queries by SPARQL.
   * Added support for function calls as select expressions in SPARQL.
   * Added support dots at the end of simple OPTIONAL statements in
     SPARQL.

   tracker-miner-fs:
   * Fixed crawling duplicate directories if one is in the config file
     and the other is a removable media.
   * Fixed memory leak with returned removable devices from storage
     (HAL).
   * Updated the Dia documentation for tracker-indexer to detail how
     tracker-miner-fs works.
   * Fixed so we don't print "miners all finished" more than once.

   tracker-extract:
   * Added tracker_text_normalize() to clean up content used for FTS.
     This function effectively strips non-text characters, extra spaces,
     carriage returns, etc.
   * Added FTS support for MS and ODF document formats.
   * Fixed PDF extractor to use tracker_text_normalize().

   tracker-tag:
   * Added support for removing a tag on a per URN basis instead of
     for all content.
   * Fixed return value

Bugs Fixed
==========

   * Fixes GB#570608 - Translation of firefox-extension
   * Fixes GB#592400 - String translation issues
   * Fixes GB#589059 - Add option to set evolution plugins directory in
     configure
   * Fixes GB#591814 - Clean up .ui files
   * Fixes GB#581984 - Get rid of deprecated libgnome(ui)
   * Fixes GB#595752 - Minor string fixes
   * Fixes NB#142257 - Query from QtTracker causes error

NOTES:
======

   The Deskbar applet packaged with Tracker is currently out of date
   and needs some love to get it working with the new APIs. It is in
   the same state as it was for 0.6. As such it isn't expected to work.
