During the last releases, the search in Nautilus received several nice improvements. Though, there are still some improvements left to be made which would make Nautilus provide a much better search experience.
At the moment, the search of Nautilus makes little use of all the power Tracker is capable of. The ultimate goal of this project is to make use of more of what Tracker provides so more search criteria will be available in order for the search results to provide more accurate results for it’s users. Besides this, other goals of this project are to fix the most important search bugs, work on performance, it’s debuggability and testing.
