Nepomuk switches to Baloo in KDE SC 4.13

In KDE SC 4.13, Nepomuk was replaced by Baloo, a new version of the semantic search with faster indexing. I did not have time to look at it so closely, just 2 recommendations:

Give it time to index. It will start right after the installation of KDE SC 4.13 and it took quite some time (about 2-3 hours for me, and I restarted the computer and killed the processes once, because it seemed to hang), but when it is finished you will not notice it anymore.

If you experience problems, now is the time for bug reports!

I filed a bug about a crash when changing ratings while the file is indexed, and 2 weeks later it was solved.
