tracker-search gets colour & snippets!

Recently Carlos added FTS4 and snippet support to Tracker. We merged that to master after doing some tests and have reduced the database size on disk by doing this. I released 0.15.2 yesterday with the FTS4 work, and today I decided to add a richer experience to tracker-search.

Below you can see me searching for passport and sue found in some of the documents indexed on my machine. The colour there is quite nice to separate hits and snippets/contexts where the terms were found. This search without any arguments really will search ALL resources in the database:


This second screenshot shows searching for love with all music in particular. So you can use this for all areas of tracker-search:


With any luck, we will be releasing a 0.16.0 in time for the next GNOME release with this all available in!
