GNOME-Zeitgeist meets Mayanna THE ULTIMATE FAQ

Perhaps as a result the recent news about GNOME 3.0 mentioning GNOME-Zeitgeist (Yay!). A lot of people have been visiting our IRC channel lately asking about the project. In the chats that evolved we told them about our merging with the Mayanna project which led to some questions regarding Mayanna. Since many people have the same questions, we compiled this little FAQ. 1. Why do you merge again? I didn't get that part. We have a little problem in GNOME-Zeitgeist. Our dataprovides reside in the same process as everything…

Bringing back some old code

I managed to get Firefox history at last. After some issues with SQLite locks, copying the places.sqlite and work on it was the solution.

Another cool thing is now automatically when one writes a new dataprovider it can autmatically be filtered. Next on the list is improving performance and memory consumption(although its waaaaaaaaay better than gimmie/mayanna). Features: Firefox now enabled Cleaned up code Enabled Drag…

Gnome Journal Update #5

I assume this is update 5 thus #5 So the filters are working pretty well! All functional and every dataprovider will be automatically included into the filters list. I still have to work on the refreshing view thingie but all in all pretty stable. The issue concerning me is that when to much data is provided e.g. Firefox history (couple of thousand on my PC) it could take too long to create and view the items! The Firefox Dataprovider is in the code, however will not be displayed, since…
