Beagle 0.3.5 has been released

Announcing the release of Beagle 0.3.5 (Standard disclaimers apply). We have taken another attempt at building beagle without breaking anything and this time we fixed building with recent NDesk-DBus. We also fixed regressions in beagle-search where beagle-search window could appear grey when the shortcut key is pressed and/or beagle-search could crash when shortcut key is pressed. Enjoy. Oh, and now the epiphany extension also supports Epiphany 2.22.

WHAT IS BEAGLE?
---------------
Beagle is a Linux desktop-independent service which transparently and unobtrusively indexes your data in real-time. For example:

* Files are immediately indexed when they are created, are re-indexed when they are modified, and are dropped from the index upon deletion.
* E-mails are indexed upon arrival.
* IM conversations are indexed as you chat, a line at a time.
* Web pages are indexed as you view them (with a browser extension).
* Notes and address-book entries are indexed as they are created.

Beagle supports many different data sources and file formats. For a complete listing, visit:
http://beagle-project.org/Supported_Filetypes

Beagle uses the Lucene indexing system from the Apache project and the prodigious Doug Cutting, ported to .NET by George Aroush.

Beagle includes an optional GNOME-based graphical tool for searching its indexes. Also included is an experimental web based search interface.
