Orca Search 2.1 released!

Jan 7, 2006

I am proud to announce that version 2.1 of the Orca Search is now available for download! The script gains a minor version number increase as this is a huge release; a large number of fundamental changes were included, including indexing PDF files! View the changelog for more information.

The release expands on the scripts extensability. The PDF indexing ability is included as a plugin, with architecture allowing other plugins for many other filetypes to be added in the future. As well, the body.xhtml.php file was split up into separate code and language files ready for translating.

Another big change is that the user supplied variables are now all contained in config.ini.php rather than config.php. This should make upgrading in the future a breeze as you can just overwrite all the old files with the new, while preserving your small ini file.

Other additions of note are the ability to accept cookies, a Full Scan option, "filetype:" search keyword support and a complete overhaul of the HTTP request system. This is quite certainly the best Orca Search release yet!

If you have any comments, suggestions or bug reports, please let me know via my contact form or email address included in the readme.txt file.

A big thanks goes out to all the beta testers who were invaluable in helping me squash some bugs I otherwise would have never found on my own! :) Enjoy!
