    PR 1.2: Gallery Behaviour

    I have an application which saves .png files to /home/user/MyDocs/Pictures

    Prior to PR 1.2 release everything was fine but now occasional (!) users report that they cannot see some or any of these files in the Gallery. The worst part of this is that I've seen only one file acting like this on my device (of approx. 100 tests) and it made no difference with other files that show perfectly normal.

    Have there been any changes in Gallery behaviour in 1.2, and is there a way to enforce Gallery to update its contents? I'm starting to be desperate...

    Thanks!

    In PR1.2 tracker no longer indexes Pictures folder... maybe you can experiment with putting the pngs under DCIM/your_app folder?

    Can you please tell me were I can read about these changes?
    If DCIM is still being recursively indexed I would definitely save my files there. The problem, however, is that on some devices (including mine) Tracker recognizes new files in Pictures almost always, and thus there is no way to be theoretically sure, except for reading the documentation

    The tracker cfg are in /home/user/.config/tracker/..... I do see $PICTURES in mine and I just realized tracker did index Pictures folder on my N9. But somehow I remember it wasn't working on N950 and earlier when I first got the N9 (with beta PR1.2).

    EDIT:
    Just noticed there is a bug report: https://harmattan-bugs.nokia.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1121....
