- Release 1.19.11p1-1.1
Here are the changes since 1.19.4:
1.19.11 is a fix to the install script in 1.19.10. The latter did not copy the new ppt extraction code to the filters directory.
1.19.10 has a bit more changes than usually goes into a Recoll minor version, and could have been 1.20.0 instead.
On the other hand, it brings some features which needed to be released, and did not really warrant a major version. So here goes:
Python3 compatibility for the Python Recoll module.
A Ubuntu Unity Scope for saucy (13.10), replacing the lens (and which needed Python 3).
A new PPT format text extractor. Catppt just did not extract anything from more recent .ppt files.
Mostly, if you are not running Ubuntu (Saucy or later), you can just download the ppt filter and stay with 1.19.9.
1.19.9 fixes a few significant bugs, mostly a very serious one about date filtering, and a quite common GUI crash.
1.19.8 changes the way we handle Hindi / Devanagari text (no more stripping of diacritics), and also has a fix for the results table dups and snippets links.
1.19.7 is 1.19.5 with a few build and packaging fixes. No need to update.
1.19.5 works around a Linux kernel bug that would make it impossible to index data from a network share mounted through cifs
(this worked in 1.18 and stopped working in 1.19 because of its wider use of extended attributes)
