Zeitgeist 0.7.1 "Made in Aarhus" released!

Written for Zeitgeist Framework by Siegfried Gevatter on 2011-03-20

On behalf of the Zeitgeist team I am proud to announce the release of
Zeitgeist 0.7.1 "Made in Aarhus".

What is Zeitgeist?
---------------------------------------

Zeitgeist is a service which logs the users's activities and events,
anywhere from files opened to websites
visited and conversations, and makes this information readily
available for other applications to use. It is also
able to establish relationships between items based on similarity and
usage patterns.

What has changed?
--------------------------

Engine:

 - Expose property information in the D-Bus introspection output.
 - Mention column names explicitly when inserting events, for compatibility
  with the upcoming 0.8 release.

Python API:

 - Expose DataSourceRegistry's enabled status in a callback.
 - Automatically reconnect to Zeitgeist if the connection is lost when using
  methods asynchronously (so far this only happened for synchronous calls).
 - Reinstall all active monitors upon reconnection (LP: #673008, #727226).
 - Fix a (harmless) race condition requesting the bus name (LP: #732015).

Overall:

 - Added new event interpretation types: AcceptEvent, DenyEvent and ExpireEvent.
 - Include NCO in the generated ontologies.
 - Better ./configure check for python-rdflib.
 - Update the manpage to document exit codes.

Kind regards,
