What is it?

PaperBox is a document browser.

It lets you nicely view your ebooks, office and text documents and
organise them by tags.

Relying on Tracker, it is able to instantly discover all documents
on your desktop, and present them in a convenient way. Tags and other
metadata are shared across all Tracker-based applications.

  - Additional MIME types in index: missing OpenDocument formats
    with text, AbiWord, Microsoft Office, PostScript, and plain
    text files.

  - Categories: tag bundles for easier organising. A simple editor
    is included. Category files are stored in

  - All communication with Tracker is asynchronous. This means that,
    for example, the program won't hang anymore if you try to add
    a tag, but Tracker is currently busy indexing or generally not
    immediately responsive.

  - Respond to external tag changes. If you tag a document in
    tracker-search-tool for instance, PaperBox will immediately
    show or hide the tag(s).

  - Fixed bug #507520 – PaperBox crashes when Tracker is indexing,
    reported by Piotr Gaczkowski.

  - Fixed a bug about keeping document tiles expanded as we move
    through pages, and unintentionally showing all document details
    on tag selection.

  - Depend on giomm for file I/O.

  - Improved i18n support via usage of ngettext and no markup in strings.
