NEW in 2.1.0 - 2018-07.22
=========================

  * Brown paper bag release
  * All features from unreleased 2.0.5 apply
  * One feature was missed: TrackerResource is now able to output
    JSON-LD. This is a new API call, so a minor bump should happen
    as per Semantic Versioning.

  From 2.0.5 NEWS:
  * build: Make tarballs able to build with meson. Future releases will
    eventually phase out Autotools
  * build: Various meson build fixes
  * tests: Many fixes to functional tests
  * libtracker-miner: Fixed race conditions that may result in spurious
    "parent not indexed yet" warnings.
  * libtracker-direct: Majorly rewritten
  * tracker-store: Streamlined to use a libtracker-direct connection
    instead of reimplementing most of it.

=========================

  * Tracker shall from now on use semantic versioning
  * Drop --all from "tracker status" subcommand, it is the default
    behavior now.
  * TrackerDecorator internal operations are now cancelled on shutdown

  Translations: ca, da, eu, fi, fur, it, ko, lt, lv, nl, pt_BR, sk, sv, zh_TW

  Overview of changes since 1.12:

  * Tracker core (store, libraries) and miners have been split, this source
    tree contains the former.
  * Added support for domain ontologies, these can be used to set up private
    databases managed and populated by a standalone set of daemons. It was
    devised for sandboxing environments like Flatpak, but can be used
    independently.
  * Added API to manage application-private databases with (optional) custom
    ontologies. The application is in charge of content population as well as
    queries.
    No daemons are required for this usecase, so this becomes a SPARQL
    endpoint equivalent to SQLite.
  * libtracker-miner objects can now be used on the application side in
    combination with application-private endpoints. An additional object
    has been added to make TrackerMiner implementations exported through
    DBus.
  * The filesystem TrackerMiner base implementation has received some
    notable speedups.
  * Running multiple concurrent SELECT queries is now lock-free on most
    situations.
  * Meson build instructions have been added.

==========================

  WARNING: This is unstable development towards 2.0. There are API and
           ABI incompatibilities that might affect you.

  * Mandate that SQLite >= 3.20.0 must have --enable-fts5. SQLite devs
    made forwards and backwards incompatible changes to the FTS5 module,
    it is not sustainable anymore to ship a FTS5 module for all
    combinations. The current FTS5 module in Tracker is preserved for
    older SQLite versions.
  * Fixed a Coverity warning (CID #1453480)
  * Misc code and build fixes.

==========================

  WARNING: This is unstable development towards 2.0. There are API and
           ABI incompatibilities that might affect you.

  * Miners have been split from the Tracker package, they can be found
    at https://git.gnome.org/browse/tracker-miners.
  * Sqlite 3.20 introduced incompatible changes in the way FTS5 can be
    extended, compile/runtime checks were added to adapt to the new
    safer way if Sqlite >= 3.20.0 is found.
  * Elements are no longer leaked in the base Resource table. A refcounted
    approach ensures no longer needed elements are cleaned up from that
    table. The database will no longer indefinitely grow, it will be
    cleaned up and vacuumed periodically.
  * Fixed several Coverity warnings (CIDS: 1452447, 1188417, 1188418,
    1188428, 1452443, 1452445, 1452449)
  * Misc code and build fixes.
  * Documentation improvements

==========================

  WARNING: This is unstable development towards 2.0. There are API and
           ABI incompatibilities that might affect you.

  * Notable speedups to tracker-miner-fs, main loop overhead was greatly
    reduced by processing elements in batches. Indexing has been observed
    to be up to 2x faster, and startup on an indexed and up-to-date
    filesystem up to 3x.
  * More notable speedups to tracker-miner-fs startup, this applies only
    to filesystems where the number of indexed folders exceed the amount
    of inotify handles. Inotify monitoring is temporarily disabled during
    filesystem mtime checks, resulting in up to 4x faster startup. (In
    addition to the previous point).
  * Refurbished the allocation scheme for underlying DB interfaces. The
    benefit is twofold, this makes TrackerSparqlConnections truly isolated
    instances, and results in much reduced mutex contention on stress
    situations.
  * Dropped deprecated API to get direct/bus connections. Use
    tracker_sparql_connection_get().
  * Deprecated TrackerSparqlBuilder. Use TrackerResource.
  * Added tracker_sparql_connection_get_namespace_manager() to fetch the
    namespaces as per the ontology of the connection.
  * Dropped support for non-standard SPARQL syntax "AS var", the right
    syntax is "AS ?var", defined in SPARQL1.1 and accepted by Tracker
    for a long time.
  * Added tracker:title-order() sparql function, only meant to be used
    in "ORDER BY" clauses. It drops the common articles at the beginning
    of the given variable for sorting purposes.
  * Fix shutdown issues on tracker-store introduced in 1.99.0. No more
    spurious integrity checks on startup.
  * Misc code and build fixes.

NEW in 1.99.0 - 2017-07-06
==========================

  WARNING: This is unstable development towards 2.0. There are API and
           ABI incompatibilities that might affect you.

  * Domain ontologies: it is now possible to create domain-specific SPARQL
    endpoints with customizable ontologies and data locations. It is possible
    to do so either in-process using the traditional Tracker daemons to
    do the work (Note: miners rely on Nepomuk ontology).
  * Deleted nautilus/firefox/evolution/thunderbird plugins. They were in
    a pitiful state of maintainership, the latter 2 being known broken for
    some time already.
  * Deleted tracker-needle. It has been in strict maintenance state for years,
    since then other UIs have integrated Tracker search and offer a more
    compelling and modern experience.
  * Deleted tracker-preferences. Tracker has been using GSettings for years,
    so doesn't specifically require an UI for it, there's of course room
    for desktop integrated configuration, gnome-control-center does this
    for example.
  * Made portions of libtracker-miner useful on the client side. Miners don't
    mandate anymore an org.freedesktop.Tracker1.Miner DBus interface/name,
    this is instead delegated on TrackerMinerProxy. TrackerMinerFS has been
    made largely independent of the ontology in use, all high level operations
    that do require SPARQL updates are now exposed in TrackerMinerFSClass.
  * Removed deprecated and duplicate API on libtracker-miner
  * Added documentation about creating and maintaining ontologies.
  * Removed maemo leftovers.
  * libtracker-sparql: Protect sqlite3_bind* with interface lock
  * Improvements to meson build

NEW in 1.8.0 - 2016-03-21
=========================

Changes since 1.7.5:
  * libtracker-miner: Adapt to libcue 2.0
  * translations: da

Overview of changes since 1.6.x:
  * Better support of the Sparql 1.1 syntax:
    - Support for many builtin functions:
      * String: CONCAT, CONTAINS, LCASE, UCASE, STRLEN, SUBSTR, STRSTARTS, STRENDS,
        STRBEFORE, STRAFTER, ENCODE_FOR_URI.
      * Numeric: ABS, ROUND, CEIL, FLOOR, RAND.
      * Date/Time: YEAR, MONTH, DAY, HOUR, MINUTES, SECONDS, NOW.
      * Checksum: MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA512.
  * Support for Sparql 1.1's DELETE {} INSERT {} WHERE {} syntax. This allows for
    performing complex updates in a single operation, without the shortcomings of
    the tracker specific INSERT OR REPLACE {} syntax.
  * Support for Sparql 1.1's BIND(). This allows mapping complex evaluations to a
    variable within the triple pattern, so usable within it.
  * The latter two applied allowed tracker-miner-fs to halve the time spent in
    handling move operations.
  * Many fixes to tracker-miner-fs and libtracker-miner, it is now a lot more robust
    esp. around cancellation situations (eg. deleting/unmounting the folder currently
    being indexed).
  * Many fixes to tracker-extract modules, many consistency fixes have been fixed where
    modules would produce invalid Sparql (eg. breaking cardinality limits of certain
    variables) if given files with unexpected metadata.
  * As a result of the last two points, 1.8.0 fixes most of the warnings/criticals that
    have been reported as "spamming journald".
  * Tracker now uses GTask, except for vala code.

NEW in 1.3.2 - 2014-12-11
=========================

  * New Feature: 'tracker' binary: All pre-existing tracker-* command line tools have been merged into this new binary. Man pages are shown for 'help' sub-commands. This brings more of a "git" feel to the tracker's command line tools. There is a backwards compatible 'tracker-command' script and compatibility layer provided to ensure existing commands still work for a limited time. The old 'tracker-control' actions are now part of 'tracker daemon', 'tracker reset' and 'tracker index'. Additionally, the 'tracker-sql' utility has been integrated to allow SQL operations directly on the DB.

  * gvdb: Fixed LDFLAGS and CFLAGS, was using unused variables
  * gvdb: Move away from g_file_delete() to unlink() to avoid GIO dep for one line in unit tests
  * libtracker-fts: Make property list per-thread data to fix uninitialisation issues
  * libtracker-fts: Fixed compilation errors when --disable-tracker-fts is used
  * tracker-extract: Fixed potential use of uninitialised hash table in persistence_invalidate()
  * tracker-extract: Fixed possible invalid memory read/write in tracker_keywords_parse()
  * tracker-extract: Fixed memory leak of MediaArt object for TrackerExtractInfo
  * clean-tracker-prefix: Should consider lib64 as well as lib directories

=========================

The main changes since 1.0.x are:

  * New Feature: Extractor now supports eBook and Comic book formats
  * New Feature: Extractor now supports BMP files
  * New Feature: Data Provider: Now there are TrackerDataProvider and TrackerEnumerator interfaces to allow 3rd parties to supply their own data to Tracker to be indexed, for example for an online or proprietary service
  * New Feature: Extractor is now 'crash-aware' that being, we have a separate data source for content that can't be extracted to avoid repeated failures from tracker-extract. This also survives through crashes that may occur due to attempted extractions
  * build: Updated doap file (added programming language and category is now "core")
  * build: Improve firefox and thunderbird detection to avoid warnings in console
  * build: Removed all GNU_SOURCE additions in sources, use AC_USE_SYSTEM_EXTENSIONS instead
  * build: Fixed many unit tests that were not properly isolated
  * build: configure now has an --enable-minimal option to ONLY build tracker-store
  * build: Reduce vala generated source warnings from GCC
  * build: Use major version only PkgConfig files. Previously, we had $library-$major-$minor (e.g. tracker-sparql-1.2, when it should be tracker-sparql-1.0) to avoid creating unnecessary work for developers using Tracker. This release corrects this and it was planned originally.
  * build: Include COPYING*GPL files in tarball
  * build: Generate Vala bindings from GIR for libtracker-miner, libtracker-control
  * build: Improved many GIR annotations for nullable cases in libtracker-miner, libtracker-control

  * build: Remove --enable-guarantee metadata, always guarantee nie:title and nie:contentCreated
  * build: Added CC_CHECK_FLAGS_APPEND m4 macros from xinelib/systemd projects to check GCC compiler flags we can use
  * ontology: nfo:hasMediaStream no longer has a max cardinality of 1, this may mean a reindex is needed
  * libtracker-bus: Fixed a crash in query_async() where splice async operation is cancelled
  * libtracker-bus: Fixed a bug where tracker-stats showed no information with Vala 0.24+
  * libtracker-sparql: All TrackerSparqlConnection APIs throw GLib.Error due to GUnixFDList _append() API
  * libtracker-sparql: Move TRACKER_ const definitions to Tracker namespace, i.e. Tracker.DBUS_*
  * libtracker-miner: Fixed reference leak with TrackerTaskPool when using external data miners
  * libtracker-miner: Add new API tracker_decorator_fs_prepend_file() as part of 'crash-aware' feature.
  * libtracker-miner: PkgConfig file now requires libmediaart (when dependent) privately
  * libtracker-extract: Fixed broken EXIF GPS coordinate extraction
  * libtracker-extract: There is no longer an example in the examples/ directory as this library is now private
  * tracker-extract: Fixed missing TRACKER_EXTRACTORS_DIR env var that was removed at some stage
  * tracker-extract: Cleaned up signal handling, SIGALRM and SIGABRT no longer used
  * tracker-extract: [DOC] Catch more MS Office MIME types supported

  * tracker-extract: [GIF] Support giflib 5.1.0 as well as earlier versions
  * tracker-stats: Now EXPRESSIONS can be used to filter stats shown
  * tracker-stats: Now only common and fallback RDF types are shown by default, --all can be used to old behaviour
  * tracker-info: Add --resource-is-iri or -i to avoid filename to URN lookups
  * tracker-info: Don't show "(null)" for nie:InformationElements with no nie:url
  * tracker-control: Added a lot of strings previsouly untranslated
  * tracker-control: Removed shorthand command line switches for less common arguments (--list-*, --pause-details)
  * tracker-control: Added --watch command line option to watch changes to the database.
  * tracker-miner-fs: By default, ignore directories with '.trackerignore' file inside
  * tracker-miner-apps: New process to mine data about applications, previously part of tracker-miner-fs. Can be disabled with --disable-miner-apps
  * tracker-miner-user-guides: New process to mine data about user guides and help content, previously part of tracker-miner-fs. Can be disabled with --disable-user-guides
  * tracker-writeback: Support GIFs
  * tracker-preferences: Removed fixed column for indexed locations, column header text was cut off
  * tracker-preferences: Don't use Stock.* deprecated since Gtk+ 3.10
  * tracker-preferences: Added suggestion to reindex OR restart depending on configuration changes applied
  * tracker-preferences: General UI clean up and modernization fixing many deprecations where old GTK+ widgets were used
  * tracker-preferences: Added 'control' tab to allow users to enable finer control of what's indexed (e.g. numbers - which are normally disabled)
  * tracker-preferences: Add AppData with screenshots for app stores
  * tracker-needle: Add AppData with screenshots for app stores

NEW in 1.1.3 - 2014-08-19
=========================

  * New Feature: Extractor is now 'crash-aware' that being, we have a
    separate data source for content that can't be extracted to avoid
    repeated failures from tracker-extract. This also survives through
    crashes that may occur due to attempted extractions.

  * libtracker-miner: Make sure we return NULL on FileDataProvider
    begin() errors

NEW in 1.1.1 - 2014-07-10
=========================

The main changes since 1.1.0 are:

  * build: Use major version only PkgConfig files. Previously, we had
    $library-$major-$minor (e.g. tracker-sparql-1.2, when it should be
    tracker-sparql-1.0) to avoid creating unnecessary work for
    developers using Tracker. This release corrects this and it was
    planned originally.

NEW in 1.0.0 - 2014-03-24
=========================

The main changes since 0.16.x are:

  * build: Require libmediaart >= 0.1.0 (soft dependency), code has been exported from Tracker to this library
  * build: Require libicu >= 4.8.1.1, first version with pkg-config support, no version specified before
  * build: Require Vala >= 0.18.0 (was 0.16.0) to avoid Vala 0.16 g_dbus_message_get_body() binding bug
  * build: Require GLib >= 2.38 (was 2.35.1) after removing all deprecated g_test_trap_fork() calls for _subprocess()
  * build: Require libosinfo >= 0.2.9 (was 0.0.2)
  * build: Updated GSF dependency to >=1.14.24
  * build: Improve SQLite FTS feature checking for cross compilation
  * build: Improve description of build switches
  * build: Remove ALL GLib marshallers. We depend on GLib (>= 2.30) which depends on libffi enabling us to do this
  * build: Make sure --target-glib used with Vala is the correct GLib (was 2.34, should be $GLIB_REQUIRED), removes Vala g_type_init() warnings.
  * build: Do not maintain LT versioning for internal libraries libtracker-{common,data,extract}
  * build: GTester Makefile rules have been updated
  * build: Improve portability, avoid some GNUisms and #ifdef linux specific API
  * build: Improved portabiliy for OpenBSD and Solaris
  * build: Use UPower >=0.99 if available
  * all: Make GBusType run-time configurable with TRACKER_BUS_TYPE environment variable
  * New Feature: Passive extraction: Specific metadata extraction (e.g. image orientation) is done by listening for insert signals for resource metadata (e.g. file name, size, etc) and done passively rather than being required before inserting ANY information about a resource. This officially makes tracker-extract a miner of special sorts
  * New Feature: SPARQL functions tracker:normalize() and tracker:unaccent()
  * New Feature: libav extractor for extracting audio/video metadata
  * New Feature: tracker-store GraphUpdated signal delay now configurable: This signal is what's used to notify of resource changes in the database (e.g. new file added), previously it was always 1 second, now it can be configured
  * libtracker-common: Added strnlen() compatibility function
  * libtracker-data: Fix AS ?foo handling in FTS queries
  * libtracker-direct: Don't allow connection if current and db locale mismatch
  * libtracker-miner: Major API cleanups,
    - TrackerMinerWeb has been removed, replaced by TrackerMinerOnline
    - TrackerMinerManager has been splitted into a separate libtracker-control
    - TrackerCrawler, TrackerStorage and the thumbnailer/mediaart helper functions are no longer public.
  * libtracker-extract: This library has been made private. Implementing a TrackerDecorator is the recommended way to provide additional data.
  * libtracker-control: New library, containing TrackerMinerManager, it requires using tracker-control-1.0.pc
  * tracker-miner-fs: optional prioritization of folders has been reimplemented, used on removable volumes and DBus requests
  * tracker-extract: Prioritization of rdf:types has been implemented, so certain file types are extracted before others, on demand of applications.
  * tracker-extract: Removed support for libstreamanalyzer, xine and totem extractors, not been used or supported in a long time
  * tracker-extract: Removed support for obsolete GStreamer backends tagreadbin, decodebin2 in gstreamer extractor
  * tracker-extract: Removed the need for fork() and sub-processes with PDF extraction, no longer needed
  * tracker-extract: Removed --disable-shutdown command line option now that it is instantiated by DBus
  * tracker-extract: Fixed epub extractor so it doesn't use a broken ontology
  * tracker-extract: Make it clearer where MIME type came from in debug (from GIO/xdgmime or tracker-miner-fs)
  * tracker-extract: EPub extractor has been improved, content is now more complete.
  * tracker-extract: Added ICU-based encoding detection
  * tracker-extract: Detect GNOME screenshots and these to a category
  * tracker-sparql: Now has a --tree switch to print ontology classes and properties as a tree
  * tracker-tag: Fixed GLib-WARNING **: goption.c:2193: ignoring no-arg...
  * tracker-tag: Fix --list (-t) to use logical OR, not AND
  * tracker-needle: always show "Loading..." in the Document category
  * tracker-sandbox: Added utility tracker-sandbox to run tracker in isolated cases
  * docs/tools/ttl2sgml: Don't GError on nao:deprecated namespaces in the ontology, errors for mlo which is entirely deprecated
  * functional-tests: Use GraphUpdated signal from store, not miner-fs Idle status
  * functional-tests: Don't require miner-fs being idle for testing data inserted
  * functional-tests: Start/stop processes in correct order, miner after extract
  * functional-tests: Increase default timeout 90s->180s, 90s isn't long enough sometimes
  * functional-tests: Don't rely on just tracker-control -t to kill tests in time
  * thunderbird: Added UI localization support including translations for French, Spanish and Polish
  * thunderbird: Escape folder names in URIs
  * thunderbird: Port code to make sure it works for Thunderbird 24

NEW in 0.17.3 - 2014-02-20
==========================

The main changes are:

  * tracker-extract: Prioritization of rdf:types has been implemented, so certain file types are extracted before others, on demand of applications.
  * libtracker-extract: This library has been made private. Implementing a TrackerDecorator is the recommended way to provide additional data.
  * libtracker-miner: Major API cleanups,
    - TrackerMinerWeb has been removed, replaced by TrackerMinerOnline
    - TrackerMinerManager has been splitted into a separate libtracker-control
    - TrackerCrawler, TrackerStorage and the thumbnailer/mediaart helper functions are no longer public.
  * libtracker-control: New library, containing TrackerMinerManager, it requires using tracker-control-1.0.pc
  * tracker-miner-fs: optional prioritization of folders has been reimplemented, used on removable volumes and DBus requests
  * tests: GTester Makefile rules have been updated
  * utils: tracker-sparql gained a --tree switch to print (partial) ontology trees, and longhands/shorthands for classes/properties

The main changes are:

  * build: Use API version 1.0 instead of bumping it every stable release (affects .pc and .so filenames)
  * build: Require libmediaart >= 0.1.0, code has been exported from Tracker to this library
  * build: Make sure --target-glib used with Vala is the correct GLib (was 2.34, should be $GLIB_REQUIRED), removes Vala g_type_init() warnings.
  * Fixes GB#696099, tracker needle always show "Loading..." in the Document category

  * libtracker-miner: Fix warning for TrackerFileSystem registering properties twice (with hash destroy function set to NULL)
  * libtracker-miner: Improve TrackerDecoratorInfo to be a boxed type fixing a ref-count issue and a requirement for introspection.
  * libtracker-miner: Avoid unnecessary query calls when tracker_decorator_next() is called consecutively, we now queue queries.
  * libtracker-miner: Various improvements including moving string handling from GArray to GPtrArray and code duplication in TrackerDecorator.
  * tracker-extract: Split generic gstreamer/libav extract rules
  * tracker-extract: Use fully expanded name for nie:DataSource in decorator to avoid conflicts with shorthand insert IDs
  * tracker-needle: Fixed GTK+ 3.x deprecations

  * build: Require Vala >= 0.18.0 (was 0.16.0) to avoid Vala 0.16 g_dbus_message_get_body() binding bug
  * build: Require GLib >= 2.38 (was 2.35.1) after removing all deprecated g_test_trap_fork() calls for _subprocess()
  * build: Require libosinfo >= 0.2.9 (was 0.0.2)
  * build: Use gtkdocize in autogen.sh differently to avoid "-chmod command not found", see GB#701259
  * build: Remove ALL GLib marshallers. We depend on GLib (>= 2.30) which depends on libffi enabling us to do this
  * build: Add SQLite 3.8.1 to list of bad SQLite versions
  * New Feature: Passive extraction:
                 Specific metadata extraction (e.g. image orientation)
                 is done by listening for insert signals for resource metadata
                 (e.g. file name, size, etc) and done passively rather than being
                 required before inserting ANY information about a resource
                 This officially makes tracker-extract a miner of special sorts
  * New Feature: SPARQL functions tracker:normalize() and tracker:unaccent()
  * New Feature: libav extractor for extracting audio/video metadata
  * New Feature: tracker-store GraphUpdated signal delay now configurable:
                 This signal is what's used to notify of resource changes in the database (e.g. new file added),
                 Previously it was always 1 second, now it can be configured
  * Fixes: GB#721880, fts:offsets returns wrong values
  * Fixes: GB#722525, #include <glib.h> is missing in src/tracker-ioprio.h
  * Fixes: GB#722353, #!/bin/bash in docs/tools/gen-doc.sh
  * Fixes: GB#720686, libtracker-extract: Link against libicu when using it
  * Fixes: GB#719512, Adapt to libosinfo 0.2.9 & make use of variant API
  * Fixes: GB#715040, Avoid starting tracker-store twice
  * Fixes: GB#699412, libtracker-fts/parser/nwords_6 test fails
  * Fixes: RH#1026283, Nautilus eating 100% cpu
  * libtracker-common: Added strnlen() compatibility function
  * libtracker-common: Fixed unit test for SCHED_IDLE expecting SCHED_OTHER by default, but jhbuild uses SCHED_IDLE as standard.
  * libtracker-fts: Strengthen against SQLite failures. Ensure no infinite loos in sqlite3_step() and don't use g_once_init_enter() for init
  * tracker-extract: Support Qt5
  * tracker-extract: Removed --disable-shutdown command line option now that it is instantiated by DBus
  * tracker-extract: Fixed memory leak with strings processed detected as UTF16
  * tracker-extract: msoffice: Fixed memory leak, calling g_free() on wrong pointer
  * tracker-extract: mp3: Fixed memory leak, cases where "" was found in tags were not always freed
  * tracker-extract: gstreamer: Fixed memory leak on error for GstDiscovererInfo structs
  * tracker-extract: gif: Fixed memory leak on error for filename
  * functional-tests: Set up XDG data and cache directories like we do in utils/sandbox/
  * functional-tests: Avoid invalid calls to g_source_remove(), avoids: "GLib-CRITICAL **: Source ID 130 was not found when attempting to remove it"
  * utils/sandbox/tracker-sandbox: Use separate dirs for config and data because there may be file name conflicts
  * docs/tools/ttl2sgml: Don't GError on nao:deprecated namespaces in the ontology, errors for mlo which is entirely deprecated

Notes:

  * The 0.15.3 tarball uploaded was done using the wrong version of

    these bug reports:

      Tracker should build against libgee 0.8:
      https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=691807#c4

      tracker 0.15.3 fails to build: g_type_init is deprecated
      https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=695470

    This release fixes the tarball released AND includes the above
    fixes. Apologies for any inconvenience.

NEW in 0.15.2 - 2013-02-11

The changes are:

  * Build: Required SQLite 3.7.9 (was 3.7.0) for FTS4 support
  * 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.
  * Fixes: GB#691847, tracker-extract: Port to new gupnp-dlna API
  * Fixes: GB#692409, playlist extractor should index playlist title if available
  * Fixes: GB#692603, Search can not find pdf files using author names
  * Ontology: Deprecated tracker:fulltextNoLimit and removed use in all other ontologies
  * libtracker-fts: Removed tracker_fts_config_min_word_length() and config option
  * libtracker-miner: Fixed GNOME password provider, libsecret expects "user" not "username"
  * tracker-info: Fixed memory leak where urn wasn't freed.
  * tracker-info: Fixed memory leak when using prefixes for shorthand properties

Translations:

  * None

Notes:

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

  Due to the deprecation of tracker:fulltextNoLimit and removal of
  libtracker-fts's config option to set the minimum word length, we
  now index ALL small words and rely on stop words to filter
  redundant data. We still have the maximum word length checks in
  place.

Translations:

  Many, thank you to everyone involved.

Notes:

  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).

  The unicode parser will no longer default to GLib and configure will
  error if no libicu or libunistring is available. This is due to
  serious performance issues that are witnessed using GLib. It can
  still be used if explicitly forced using the switch
