tracker and tracker-miners 2.1.0 releases, fixing a F28 regression in tracker-miners-2.0.5-1.fc28 that caused tracker-extract to respawn in a tight loop and consume high CPU.

tracker 2.1.0:

  • build: Make tarballs able to build with meson. Future releases will eventually phase out Autotools
  • build: Various meson build fixes
  • tests: Many fixes to functional tests
  • libtracker-miner: Fixed race conditions that may result in spurious "parent not indexed yet" warnings.
  • libtracker-direct: Majorly rewritten
  • tracker-store: Streamlined to use a libtracker-direct connection instead of reimplementing most of it.

tracker-miners 2.1.0:

  • tests: Many updates and fixes to functional tests
  • tracker-extract: Better infrastructure for tests, based on JSON-LD
  • tracker-miner-fs: Restart tracker extract from the right domain
  • tracker-extract: Persistently avoid files that trigger recoverable errors, to avoid log spamming on restarts.

After applying the update to 2.1.0 from the testing repo, the same behavior found in 2.0.5, returns. High CPU, multiple spawns of tracker-extract and many journal messages like:
