Description Anton Bolshakov 2018-07-11 15:31:53 UTC

Minor releases at a glance
Fixes the "error 9 on netlink descriptor" GUI crash.
Add GUI option to activate links found in plain text in the preview window.
Add monitordirs configuration variable to define a subset of the whole indexed tree (topdirs) to be monitored for changes, and implement a method to get the recollindex command (executed without options) to trigger a running monitoring recollindex to perform an incremental on the whole tree. Together, these change make it easy to set up Recoll to index a big tree and only monitor a small subset for real time changes.

1.24.0 <long list skipped>

Just a change of version number to 1.24.1 works fine. Tested the application on amd64.

ebuild for recoll-1.24.1 which adds an header file
Comment 3 Fabio Rossi 2018-07-31 10:13:27 UTC
added a dependency on Qt 5.11 bug because recoll needs a patch to compile correctly against that Qt version (the patching is included in src_prepare() of the ebuild attached by Helmut)

I have added a new ebuild for recoll-1.24.1 that adds a patch for the QT change. Change in the ebuild is the following:

thanks, ppurka! Did you send this patch upstream as well?

In the future, please just attach a unified diff instead of a full ebuild, so that changes over the previous version are easily reviewed. Alternatively please look into how to contribute via GitHub pull requests:
