The Zeigeist framework that is responsible for much of the logging responsibilities in the GNOME world and powers the GNOME Activity Journal is finally nearing version 1.0. The 1.0 milestone comes after landing a number of improvements recently and after nearly a half-decade of development work.

New improvements to Zeitgeist include the libzeitgeist2 library that's written in Vala and more efficient, GObject introspection support, faster performance, a smaller database size, and lots of bug-fixes.

Zeitgeist developers are currently seeking help in packaging, testing, and porting of apps to the 1.0 interfaces. The Zeitgeist 1.0 release will come after the next Vala release as they're currently waiting on some improvements to land.

More details on the pending Zeitgeist 1.0 release can be found via this blog post.
