About Tracker



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 main changes since 0.14.x are:


* Require: GStreamer >= 1.0 (was 0.10) to follow upstream releases

* Require: libgrss >= 0.5 (was 0.3) to follow upstream releases

* Require: GLib 2.35.1 for GTask API (was 2.28.0)

* Require: SQLite 3.7.9 (was 3.7.0) for FTS4 support

* Removed: Flickr miner, it will be imported to GNOME Photos later.

* Removed: Dia dependency for producing documentation.

* Removed: tracker-explorer (unused and unmaintained)

* Removed: tracker-search-bar (unused, useless and unmaintained)

* Removed: utils/playlists (replicates tracker-extract)

* Removed: utils/lyrics (not working any more, we don't store lyrics


* Removed: utils/webhistory (unused)

* Removed: utils/data-generators/deprecated/ (unused)

* Removed: utils/data-generators/barnum/ (unused)

* New Feature: Support GKqueueDirectoryMonitor API on BSD systems

* New Feature: Full Text Search (FTS) v4 support:

New SPARQL function fts:snippet(?u)

- Snippets provide context around a matched query.

New SPARQL function fts:offsets(?u):

- Offsets provide an index where a matched query is

found in context.

See tracker-needle for basic use.
