Release notes 

2011-04-07: Zeitgeist 0.8.0 "I only got a donkey"


 - Fixed secondary sorting by timestamp for most ResultTypes (LP: #772041).
 - Enabled filtering by availability in FindEvents.
 - Added an origin property to events, matching that for subjects (LP: #425258).
 - Added a current_uri property to subjects, which unlike all other properties
   is mutable.
 - Add new sorting types for origin and current_uri.
 - Added support for "move" events, which automatically update the current_uri
   property where appropriate (LP: #602211).
 - Fixed inconsistencies caused by the internal cache not being updated when
   events were deleted (LP: #598666).
 - Added a Storage Monitor extension which tracks network connectivity and
   removable devices (LP: #489194).
 - Fixed datahub launching to avoid zombie processes (LP: #739780).
 - Replaced the Blacklist extension giving it a more capable API (LP: #612344).
 - Do not print a traceback when Zeitgeist fails to start because another
   instance is already running, just show a plain error message (LP: #744818).
 - Simplified log output format when printing to stderr.

Python API:

 - Fix bug in the connection (to Zeitgeist) recovery code (LP: #771970).
 - Added new ResultTypes: {Most,Least}{Recent,Popular}{CurrentUri,EventOrigin}.
 - Created *SubjectOrigin alias for all {Most,Least}{Recent,Popular}Origin
 - Minor documentation improvements (fixed typos, etc).
