MetaData Extractor 0.2

A small update on the Nepomuk MetaData Extractor.
Today I release version 0.2. This means also my extractor is finally in a state that is good enough to get it out of playground and somewhere into KDE (as kdelibs is frozen I'll aim for extragear).

To make this happen a little bit more testing is needed, so it will be "bugfree" by the time 4.10 will be released.

What changed since my last blog post:
* I've added a BatchDownloader so external programs can integrate the extractor stuff better.
* Plugins / Nepomukpipe execution do not block the ui anymore.
* Made some more methods public. Helps to reuse the NepomukPipe classes (mainly from Conquirere)
* Old metadata (from this extractor) will be removed before new data is added.
* In automatic mode loop through all available plugins for one type until a match was found. maximising the chance to get a result.
Lim Yuen Hoe extended the tvdb plugin for anime support.
* imdb tv show fetching works now
* add plugins for SpringerLink, nature.com
* save contacts (Author, Director, Actor etc) as nco:Contact rather than nco:PersonContact
* Show all metadata results in a treeview, rather than a subset of it in a plain list.
* several other bugfixes

  2. Is there any plans for this to be included in KDE by default when it becomes stable?

    P.S Great work, KDE devs rock!

  3. Noticed the 0.2 tag the other day :) I'll blog about the anime parts soon, but I wanna try to finish and push one more feature for the tvdbmal plugin first.
