Pinot/Journal news

The magic of RSS just informed me that Pinot has had it's 0.90 release, fixing some of the problems with i18n and OpenSearch that I'd found in my Journal2 work, and actually implementing my tagged cd idea! Coolness. I had been thinking about Recoll recently, simply because I like its simple plug-in interface for indexing new formats, but it looks like Pinot has pulled ahead again.

Fabrice, how about importing the HTML-indexing code from Omega like Recoll does, and using the same plugin interface and filters? You'd immediately expand greatly the types of documents you can index, and make it easy for third-parties to create one ones. A plugin basically just takes the file-to-be-indexed and spits out an HTML document with the indexable text. Additional xapian fields can be specified by including appropriate <meta> tags in the output HTML. Full details are in the Recoll manual; it's a pretty straightforward scheme.
