ANNOUNCE: tracker 0.11.0 released (unstable)

Where can I get it?

What is it?

Tracker is a semantic data storage for desktop and mobile devices. Tracker uses W3C standards for RDF ontologies using Nepomuk with SPARQL to query and update the data.

Tracker is a central repository of user information, that provides two big benefits for the user; shared data between applications and information which is relational to other information (for example: mixing contacts with files, locations, activities and etc.).

  The database version has been incremented, this will force a
  reindex for any existing Tracker installation.

  Existing configurations should have migration paths to new GSettings
  based format.

  Of all the requirement changes listed above, the only GSettings and
  GObject Introspection are absolutely required to build Tracker, the
  others are optional depending on components being built. These are
  also only when building from git, not a distributed tarball (which
  should have the m4 macros packaged).
