Congratulations!!! Is this in gentoo and/or is there an overlay for
Gentoo yet! This is fantastic news everyone!


New Features :

* Completely new backend that has been moved from Mysql to the nimble 
Sqlite database and QDBM inverted word index.

* New tracker-search-tool GUI which allows you to search for your files 
in a google like fashion with results depicted with google style search 
snippets. Obligatory screenshot -

Whoa pretty! I can't wait to use it all the time! Keep it up!

* Revamped Rdf Query engine

* New lighter design with big dependencies like libextractor having been 
dropped in favour of lighter and optional metadata extractors

* includes new extractors that can use totem or mplayer

* New options to tune tracker for your system. We now have a 
--enable-low-memory setting for use with computers with less RAM and a 
--turbo mode for those  who want indexing to take place as fast as possible

* New snowball stemmers have been integrated into Tracker to provide 
some of the highest quality open source stemming around

* New language specific stopword lists to prevent indexng of common 
words (which are of little value)

* Can optionally make use of Pango word breaking for full 
internationalisation support

What is it?

Tracker is a personal search tool and storage system that allows you to
search and enhance your personal data with the minimum of fuss.

It allows you to find the proverbial needle in your computer's haystack
as well as providing a one stop solution to the organisation, storage
and categorisation of your data.

What does it do?

Tracker trawls through your data and organises it so that it can be
retrieved extremely quickly later on via simple searches.

This organisation puts your data into categories so that application
like photo managers and music players can instantly find relevant
content automatically

Tracker enables you to tag your data with keywords which can be used to
find related information or to group and categorise your data further

Tracker lets you extend your data with additional metadata
