What is it? Why? Where?
These questions were all covered in my previous blog about tracker-needle.
Well, a number of small changes have been going on based on user requests and making sure all the tracker-search-tool old features are covered. Specifically:
- History is saved using a nice new editable combo box
- Tags can now be seen (though that’s about it for now, more work is needed here)
- A progress spinner has been added when queries take longer than the user might expect
- Support for Emails has been added
I would love to get tags working better, allowing adding/removing and searching by them. Generally, searching by tags isn’t hard, what is hard is making the search categories include tags and identifying them with files. It can be done, but doing it in a fast way is not quite so trivial. I already have a patch I am working on for this.
