On behalf of the Zeitgeist team I am happy to announce the release of
Zeitgeist 0.8.99~alpha3, the third alpha release for the new Vala
version of Zeitgeist.

This version features a re-write of the FTS extension, porting it from
Python to C/C++.

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.

Where can you get it?


What has changed?

 - Revert use of EXCLUSIVE locking mode, it breaks FTS.
 - Notifications are queued until the target monitor objects are ready.
 - The FTS module in Python has been replaced with a C/C++ implementation.
 - Pre-process events *before* they are send to extensions (LP: #628804).
 - Introduced new DB schema (version 6); cached tables may no longer
   re-use row IDs.
 - Minor fixes.

Python API:
 - Fixed signal/monitor reconnection to avoid duplicated notifications.
 - Updated the list of recognized MIME-types and schemas.
