Kat - Desktop Search Environment 0.6.4 has been released

Kat is a framework designed to allow KDE applications to index and retrieve files. Metadata, fulltext and thumbnails are extracted from documents, images, mp3 and other media allowing quick and accurate information retrieval. Kat is similar to the Windows applications WhereIsIt and Google Desktop Search, the Gnome program Beagle and the OS X utility Spotlight. It is completely written in C++, using Qt3, KDE and KIO libraries. The application is based on the extensible kfile plugin architecture of KDE in order to facilitate the creation of new media managers for emerging file formats. Kat is the first KDE application using the new fulltext kfile plugins. Information retrieval relies on the powerful SQLite3 embedded database engine.
