Subject: Fluid Dynamics Search Engine update - version 2.0.0.0065
The Fluid Dynamics Search Engine was updated to version 2.0.0.0065 on July 30, 2003. This new version has been posted on the site for the last week, and there have been no problems reported.
There have been dozens of code changes since the last announcement in December 2002. All changes are documented on the "changes" page.
Major improvements include:
* Searching binary files
Streamlined all code, interfaces, and help files for handling binary
files. Added support for searching MS Word files with help of Antiword
* mysql removed
Removed support for mysql data storage. This move has been planned for
two years. It reduces the FDSE code footprint by about 25%, which should
improve speed, especially for admin functions.
This change breaks reverse compatibility for customers who are using
mysql data storage. Such customers should review:
* Highlighting improved
Improved highlighting code for the descriptions and examples.
Previously, a search on "house" would match only the whole word
"house" when calculating search results, but it would be highlighted
wherever it appeared as a substring in the search results, as in
"household" or "houses". The new highlighting code better reflects
the underlying search algorithm.
* Bug fixes
Fixed bug in which "cmd_admin.pl rebuild All" would only rebuild the
first realm in a set.
Fixed several encoding bugs for local server indexing when the files
containing metacharacters like '%' and '#' in their names. Fixed bug
for cases in which a folder "/foo/" and file "/foo.html" have the
same base name.
Fixed bug in which host header was not sent in some cases by
proxy.pl. Would cause errors or incorrect pages to be returned when
proxy.pl was used to view sites that depend on IP-less virtual hosting
Many translations and help files have also been improved.
