Phoronix: GNOME Activity Journal Released w/ Zeitgeist Update
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...
Haven't been able to get this new one working yet but it is exciting.
The zeitgeist team has done really good work. Zeitgeist is the single biggest feature, IMHO, of G3. The framework has great potential. This activity journal is only the most trivial use of zeitgeist that I can imagine. Still, it has some interest since you will be able to easily track your work progression and re-trace your thoughts by following "commits". It's really like a high level journalling fs that attempts to be context aware(by creating a graph of activities and making guesses as to what is relevent based upon nearest neighbors with duration and time distance from event of interest being key factors, IIRC). For those who are concerned about keylogging, it doesn't work that way... well, not easily. You can filter events for searching(last I checked, this was to be something that was to be persistent so that things you weren't interested in, but still wanted to record, would not be visible) or tell it to not record certain things(umm...state tax law research?).
Since Tracker is used as a store for zeitgeist I'm hoping that .7(.8?, I'm not sure if they use odds for devel or not) is released soon...especially with archiving support!
