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.
