A developer blog post today outlined many of the Nepomuk highlights for the 4.10 release. Key features include:
- Nepmuk's file indexing has a new Double Queue Architecture where the first indexer takes care of basic indexing like the file-name and MIME data while the second indexer does the full file indexing in-depth.
- A new file indexer not using Strigi has been introduced but the new solution is arguably technologically inferior but is better code maintenance wise and for offering a better user experience.
- MIME type filtering is now supported for file indexing.
- Massive optimizations were done to the Nepmuk search KIOSlave. There's also a new tagging KIOSlave.
- A Nepomuk cleaner has been introduced.
There's also many other Nepomuk changes to be found with KDE 4.10 when released this month as well as new features throughout the entire KDE Plasma desktop.
