Back in December Zeitgeist 0.3 was released with many changes and its engine was even largely reworked. Since then there have been a few point releases as GNOME Zeitgeist is in the process of being stabilized for a Zeitgeist 0.4 release in time for GNOME 2.30. Yesterday afternoon Zeitgeist 0.3.2 was released to deliver on more stabilization work along with better support for GNOME's Activity Journal. The release announcement can be read on the mailing list.

Minutes after releasing Zeitgeist 0.3.2, Seif Lotfy continued with his typing by announcing the first development release of the GNOME Activity Journal. The GNOME Activity Journal has been in development for more than a year and is designed to be an "activity browser" for GNOME that is powered by Zeitgeist. The GNOME Activity Journal currently supports a layout for viewing items, pinning important items, a calendar slider for moving forwards and backwards in time, and preview tool-tips. This free software application also has experimental support for Tracker-based search.

While not complete in GNOME Activity Journal 0.3.2, being worked on is support for displaying the web browsing history too, search and interaction, a tagging system, a detailed single-day view showing relationships between files, and support for removing items from the journal.

The inaugural release announcement for GNOME Activity Journal is also available on the GNOME mailing list. Additional information on this project can be found on their GNOME Live page.

Look for more releases of Zeitgeist and GNOME Activity Journal prior to the release of GNOME 2.30 in March while they really should be polished and ready in time for GNOME 3.0 when it's released in September of 2010.
