Beagle v0.2.4

I'm pleased to announce the release of Beagle 0.2.4. This release is primarily a bug fix release. It fixes a number of irritating bugs, including some exceptions while indexing, memory usage explosion while using deskbar-applet, plain text files being recognized as application/octet-stream, and various UI crashes. This release also features a number of optimizations:. Indices have been added to the sqlite databases, so beagle-build-index is now substantially faster as are files in which we can't set extended attributes. We now also limit the amount of data we pull from some filters, so extremely large files now index more quickly. More information on Beagle 0.2.4 is available at the Beagle Project.
