Unity Jamendo scope
Hi all, I've just published the new Jamendo scope, bringing a new online music source to Unity (along Soundcloud, Grooveshark, U1 and Amazon). #Jamendo is a free music service with more than 400 000 songs available under Creative Commons.

If you want to test it (for Saucy or Trusty), you need to add the scopes-packagers PPA and install unity-scope-jamendo :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-scope-jamendo

It should also land (at some point) on the smart scopes server, which means it will available by default in the dash for Ubuntu Saucy/Trusty, desktop and mobile.

It was a fun one to write, and the music is great, I hope you'll enjoy it!

I had the exact same problem with using google recipe search api, other recipe search api's....!!! So I had to write my own parser, which works much slower, becouse he has to download the whole webpage first, and makes a lot of work, to maintain, too!!

Huge thanks to Lorenzo Mattei (~lore-mattei)!
He has just ported the Photo lens and Shotwell scope to Precise.
They will be available in a few hours in the scope-packagers PPA : https://launchpad.net/~scopes-packagers/+archive/ppa

+One Hundred Scopes Unfortunately, there are sometimes multiple songs with the same title, e.g. Phantom of the Opera by Iron Maiden and Nightwish. There is no way of differentiating between them in the Dash. Further, since clicking on an album does not play its songs from the first, it is quite a useless feature.

All your machines in the Dash : SSH Search lens
+Bernd Schlapsi, who recently joined the project, has released a SSH search lens to browse your SSH known hosts and connect to them in a click.

If you are looking for easy SSH management, you'll be sold. I've been using it at work since the first day of its availablity.

Install
# In a teminal
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-lens-sshsearch
# Log out, log in

Our new team member +Welton Rodrigo Torres Nascimento has refactored almost entirely the Grooveshark scope and the results of his work are quite impressive.

What's new?
* Faster results
* Reduced bandwith usage
* +Ubuntu Unity dash previews

Most of these changes have already landed for Precise users, and are now available on Quantal and Raring.

Install
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-scope-grooveshark

Some bugs have been identified and will be worked on this week.

The Flickr scope works great! However, I still manage to crash the Shotwell scope. Anything I can do to help debug that?

Meanwhile, on Oneiric
I'm pleased to announce that +Bernd Schlapsi's SSH search lens is now available in the Software Center for Ubuntu 11.10 users. If you like the idea of having a simple and searchable portal to all your SSH hosts, you should give it a try.

+Eduard Gotwig I'd have a look at 100 scopes in launchpad and set up your code like the lenses and scopes there. then use bzr to push it to your personal space in launchpad (see bzr documentation, how to work with launchpad). Then talk to the 100 scopes people and when everything looks nice your stuff could be put under the 100scopes roof. That's how I'd go about it.

Shotwell scope : database backup
Testers with large Shotwell photo collections may see their database corrupted when the scope and Shotwell access it at the same time. Until this bug is fixed, the scope automatically makes a backup of your database at startup. This backup is located in your .shotwell/data folder.

A second update should fix the potential corruption issue, but the automatic backup will stay turned on.

Photo lens : testers needed
This new photo oriented lens comes with two search engines : one for Flickr, one for Shotwell.

Shotwell
Filter by date, search your collection by event, tag and name.
Flickr
Search your Flickr collection, by photo name and tag, private or public, your contacts uploads and all Flickr photos, by selecting the relevant filter option.

Install
# In a teminal
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install unity-lens-photo
# Log out, log in

Future work
- Picasa, Facebook
- No slow down when dealing with big Shotwell collections
- Shotwell issue : tags need to be written to files to be searchable (Shotwell -> Edit -> Preferences -> Write metadata to photo files), but this should be fixed soon.

Bugs
I'm not a regular Shotwell and Flickr user and I haven't been able to stress test the lens as much as I wanted to. Please report your bugs at https://bugs.launchpad.net/onehundredscopes with [photo] at the beginning of your report title.

+葉磊 You won't have a filter with your tags to click on (this will only be technically possible in Precise), but you can search for a tag.
