Log Message:
recoll: update to 1.37.2.

Changes in Recoll 1.37.0

    Display previews using the main HTML engine (webkit or webengine)
    instead of a QTextBrowser. This improves highlighting search
    terms while walking them with the Prev/Next buttons.

    New integration with the Jieba chinese text segmenter. This
    can optionally replace the n-gram token generator used by
    default for CJK text, and produces a smaller index and much
    better terms. See recoll-chinese.html for more details.

    New handler for the .zip.html files produced by the SingleFileZ
    browser extension.

    Powerpoint: also index the slide notes.

    GUI: Add a preference for setting the format of the dates
    displayed in the side filter.

    Add configuration option to not store term positions, yielding
    a much smaller index, but forbidding phrase/proximity searches.

Changes in Recoll 1.36

    It is now possible to run external/foreign indexers on a single
    index, with support for targeted purges (purges had been the
    reason why this was not really feasible previously). See this
    manual section for more detail. A sample indexer for indexing
    a Joplin notes database is distributed with the Recoll installation
    and described in the above chapter.

    The parameter names in the main configuration file are now
    independent of character case. This was falsely claimed for an
    earlier release, it should now be true.

    GUI: hopefully improve the font sizes consistency in the
    different windows and panels.

    Unix: installing the librecoll library in the standard $libdir
    location is now the default. Use the --disable-publiclib
    configure option if you want to install it to the recoll
    sub-directory instead.

    New index configuration parameter idxnoautopurge to disable
    the deleted files purge pass after updating index. This can be
    useful for configurations on which part of the data set is
    expected to be unavailable at times. Use the -P recollindex
    command line flag to force a purge (with all the data present).
    If the parameter is not set, you can also use the --nopurge
    recollindex command line flag to skip the purge.

    Windows: the distribution now also includes a 32 bits poppler
    binary for 32 bits systems.

    Windows: include poppler-data in the distribution for better
    processing of, e.g., Chinese texts.

    Windows: arrange for the result URL/Path translations to work
    independently of character case.

    NetBSD: small changes to support this system.
