Release notes 

The first in a series of Do releases that remove some of the technical limitations of the current code base.

The headline feature of this release is the new DynamicItemSource API. This allows plugins to notify Do when a new item is available, or when old items become unavailable.

The Application item source uses this new API. You are now able to launch freshly-installed applications immediately from Do, rather than having to wait for them to be indexed.

Ths release also contains numerous bug fixes, and switches from the unmaintained NDesk.DBus to dbus-sharp.


This release does not have a changelog.
