On behalf of the Zeitgeist team I am happy to announce the release of Zeitgeist 0.8.99~alpha2, the second alpha release for the new Vala version of Zeitgeist.
What is Zeitgeist? --------------------------------------- Zeitgeist is a service which logs the users's activities and events, anywhere from files opened to websites visited and conversations, and makes this information readily available for other applications to use. It is also able to establish relationships between items based on similarity and usage patterns.
