Tracker 0.5.1 has been relased:
I'm pleased to announce a new stable release of Tracker (version 0.5.1) - the all-in-one indexer, search tool and metadata database.
Users of the previous version should upgrade ASAP (unless they are using a threadsafe version of SQLite - IE one compiled with --enable-threadsafe)
New Features :
* Inlined a threadsafe version of sqlite to prevent common errors like content not being indexed. This can be overriden for those with a threadsafe version of sqlite. (Jamie McCracken)
* New Gstreamer based audio/video extractor on by default (Laurent Aguerreche)
* Made extractors more robust (Laurent Aguerreche)
* Fixed a number of compiler warnings (tpgww onepost net)
* Tidied up the tracker-search-tool to have buttons more evenly sized (Eskil Bylund)
* Fixed a few leaks and made the dbus interface more robust (Ulrik Mikaelsson)
* Imporved IOprio detection (tobutaz)
