New in version 1.3.2 (December 11th, 2014)

  • New Feature: 'tracker' binary: All pre-existing tracker-* command line tools have been merged into this new binary. Man pages are shown for 'help' sub-commands. This brings more of a "git" feel to the tracker's command line tools. There is a backwards compatible 'tracker-command' script and compatibility layer provided to ensure existing commands still work for a limited time. The old 'tracker-control' actions are now part of 'tracker daemon', 'tracker reset' and 'tracker index'. Additionally, the 'tracker-sql' utility has been integrated to allow SQL operations directly on the DB.

  • Removed TrackerConfigFile and TrackerKeyfileObject classes, use GSettings instead

  • Moved tracker-ontologies.h (with prefix, etc definitions) into libtracker-sparql

New in version 1.2.1 (September 24th, 2014)

  • ontology: Revert nfo:hasMediaStream max cardinality change until Philip merges his feature branch to allow database migration and coping for it. This won't be in the 1.2.x releases but likely in 1.4. and master branch.
  • For packagers, skipping 1.2.0 and using 1.2.1 should avoid data loss by way of a reindex that may be forced when users upgrade. This is highly important and something we want to avoid.

New in version 1.1.1 (July 10th, 2014)

  • build: Use major version only PkgConfig files. Previously, we had $library-$major-$minor (e.g. tracker-sparql-1.2, when it should be tracker-sparql-1.0) to avoid creating unnecessary work for developers using Tracker. This release corrects this and it was planned originally.

New in version 1.0.1 (May 12th, 2014)

  • build: Switch --with-enca is now --enable-enca
  • build: Switch --enable-icu-charset-detection has been added to prefer ICU over enca for MP3 content detection

  • libtracker-miner: Memory footprint significantly reduced:
  • Massif reports tracker-miner-fs peaking at 24MB.
  • Massif reported previously growing to ~180MB.
  • Fix involves using file depth based notification internally to reduced memory build up.
  • Querying existing data in the DB now is limited (to avoid memory use, at a small performance cost).
  • Initial indexing performance is unaffected.
  • Approximately 1/3 more expensive indexing updates on resources post initial index.
  • Testing using an index of 11304 folders and 123428 files.
  • libtracker-extract: Encoding detection with libicu handles failure better
  • tracker-extract: giflib 4.2.x doesn't support PrintGifError, handle both situations

  • New Feature: SPARQL functions tracker:normalize() and tracker:unaccent()
  • New Feature: libav extractor for extracting audio/video metadata
