I have just released Sembrowser version 0.3 (sources here, Ubuntu packages here); not much changes since 0.2, time is always a problem, but it was worth publishing it because of the two most important features added:
- text filtering for tags: thanks for all the facilities provided by kdelibs, in few lines of code I have added an edit box for narrowing the tag list by searching through some text;
- the facet-term underlying structure is changed, with its classes trying to follow the Model-View-Controller architectural pattern; in this way, it should be easier to add new facets or new views, with less code involved. Please notice that this may not be the final structure: some discussions are happening right now about this, so things may change soon.
Just a reminder: Sembrowser is a (very poor) clone of Dolphin, and it is not meant to substitute the default KDE file browser: it is being developed for testing faceted browsing of Nepomuk metadata applied directly to file browsing; the side panel offering this new functionality may (hopefully) someday be ported to Dolphin itself (or to some other Nepomuk apps). So, do not complain about missing functionalities (for the manager part), because I have just added the most important ones, but they are not the main goal here.
Here in Politecnico the exam session is starting right now, so the next month will be a little busy for me; fortunately, by the end of july I should have finished all of my exams, so I should have some more time to dedicate to KDE (especially if some things will get realized as I wish, but more on this later).
