Update recoll to 1.27.6

Authored by algent on Sep 16 2020, 7:14 PM.




  • Index PDF annotations (needs poppler-glib and its GObject introspection data).
  • Fix syntax error now detected by gcc 9-10 (bad range for loop).
  • recollq: add option -p <maxlen> to be added to -A to show snippets instead of abstract.
  • recollindex: the lock file name could differ depending on how the indexer was started.
  • Add the web extension .rclwe to skippedNames.
  • Fix "nonumbers" configuration variable function, which did not work any more.
  • Fix recollindex -r not working with relative paths.
  • Fix PDF attachment processing.
  • Fix duplicate detection in some cases.
  • Process text/plain subdocuments (e.g. zip archive members) in the same way as top level files (esp: perform paging for big texts).
  • Msword .docx: avoid extracting some non-text data.
  • Index Visio documents (.vsdx format only).
  • Epub: index the metadata "subjects" fields.
  • GUI: separate popup menu entries for "open parent" and "open folder".
  • GUI: doc icons were not shown with newer webengine versions.
  • GUI file name search: sort directories first.

Depends on D9638
