KDE's Next Generation Semantic Search

For years, KDE software has included a semantic (relationship-based) searching infrastructure. Since its implementation, our developers received and digested a lot of feedback. Much work was put into improving the speed of indexing, keeping it out of the way of users and making Search more reliable.

The upcoming release of KDE Applications (version 4.13) will introduce the next step in the effort to improve the performance and stability of search features in KDE software. The improved Semantic Search is lighter on resources and more reliable than it was previously, but, thanks to considerable reuse of existing code, it is mature and offers a complete feature set.

Read on to find out more about the improvements to KDE's search, tagging and semantic technologies.
