A few linuxworlds ago I had a wonderful conversation with some friends at Ximian/Novell about smart searching that could take into account a great amount of meta data that today’s searches ignore.
This project is the answer to that question – the team’s been working on creating a context aware, multiple domain search engine and it has just reached 0.0.4.
Beagle is a search tool that ransacks your personal information space to find whatever you’re looking for.
