Quite a bit:

	- the ability to instantly reindex a file upon change or
	- Live Updates.  the ability to automatically refresh a

	- on-the-fly indexing of other things, too, such as IM's

You need Inotify 0.21 or later for more recent Beagle releases.

You could try Beagle 0.0.8 and see if that works with your kernel.
Alternatively, you could recompile your kernel with the latest inotify.
