Since this is the very first release of this software, there is no
nice changelog to show (yet).
AppStream-Core provides utilities to create the AppStream database and
access it via a nice GObject-based interface, which allows simple
creation of Software-Centers.
The 0.1 release is the very first release of this project and will
still contain many bugs as well as an unstable API, so please keep
that in mind when using it! The 0.1 release is meant as a "play
around" release. You might also want to integrate it with your
distribution to see if your AppStream XML can be transformed into the
required Xapian database.
Also, AppStream-Core is required if you want to use a Software Center
(e.g. the USC) in your distribution, and GNOME-Software will probably
also depend on it.
